Experienced MMORPG Player
Players opinions on the classes they play.
Protector = Paladin
Marksmen = Hunter/Archer/Gun
If not experienced then scroll down some more
, it uses guns but its the same as a bow
Bard = Musician
They are commonly used as a support class with some lovely buffs
Priest = Priest/Monk
Its your healer
Assasin = Rogue/Sin
, This is your stealth class and used as close combat DPS
Vampire = Necromancer
without the summons. This class is your DoT and DPS
depending on build. If i recall correctly can be a sub healer, sub tank, and possibly main healer
Warrior = Warrior/Fighter/Knight
Basic close combat sword. Pink because only real mean wear pink :P
Mage = Warlock/Mage/Magician
Your long range attackers with little health, My opinion on the races are Human is for DPS and Kindred for DoT.
Thats the Quick summary for experienced MMORPG players.
What each class does in a team (instances/bosses) http://fw-wiki.perfectworld.com/index.php/Teamplay_Guide
New To MMORPG Classes
- This is your Tank. When you see a Protector in a PvP situation you will probably think F***. This class can be made to be HIGH Damage or Tank. So if you want to be able to take hits like a boss and deal some damge then choose Protector. if i remember they have slowest attacking speed. Not 100% sure though.
If you are choosing to be a Protector
- PvE Guide/Build
- Tanking/General Guide
Trees - Diamond, Marble, Granite
- These guys can be a sub Tank. They deal higher amounts of damage then a assassin and a Protector, but less defence than a Protector.
If you are choosing to be a Warrior
- Phantom Warrior
- Elemental Warrior
Trees - Phantom, Elemental, Aegis
- These guys have DPS down. They attack fast and swiftly. So fast their opponents are sometimes stunned. Assasin have great speed attacking and good damage. Not as high as a Warrior or Prot but they make up for it with speed.
If you are choosing to be a Assasin
Not my assasin guide.
Trees - Venom, Edge, Dark
- This class has a good Story behind it in my opinion. So if you want a Story choose Marksmen. They are range attackers and they use guns. They have a decent hp amount and are DPS but they still lack Defence so dont go aggro crazy. Now, I think of them as a PvE class but they are still good in PvP. If in the hands of the right player you can be amazed at what a Marksmen can do :P
If you are choosing to be a Marksmen
- Tree Descriptions
Trees - Precision, Soul, Burst
- They are your healer of the group. If you are planning on PvP you will still be good. When you are in a instance you are expected to be the healer. If you arnt a healing priest you still have a healing spell(s). They are good at everything in my opinion. They are DPS and a Healer in one. Usually seen as a Healer
If you are choosing to be a Priest
- Support/Heal Priest
- just a list of guides
Trees - Divine, Rebel, Glacial
- High Damage, Mobbing, DPS, or DoT. This class has all those options but still lacks at HP. Mages can be made for PvE, Instances, PvP, or what ever you want. I think they are the most flexible class. If only they had more Health Points. Mages are the only class that each
tree will effect your role the most. Ice mages are focused on 1v1 PvP and single targets. They are made for kiting. Fire mages are the DD of range classes. They lack safety but make up for it by dealing more damage. Lightning mages are for mobbing. Their skills increase area of some attacks and a few other nice perks. EVERY tree has a AoE spell.
If you are choosing to be a Mage
- Lightning Guide
Trees - Fire, Lightning, Ice
- DoT, DPS, sub tank and sub healers (possibly main healer if you go into the blood tree). They can be a healer but not the most reliable. They can do Damage over time and do more damage or do DPS which is damage fast and quick. So do more damage over a period of time or Do damage quick and painless :P Close Combat
If you are choosing to be a Vampires
- might help you learn a little about the vampire tree
- Blood Vampire Guide
Trees - Blood, Dark, Inferno
- They are a Sub healer support class DPS, Depending on your tree. This is kind of like a long range Vampire but with music and doesnt do DoT. They also have just lovely buffs. If you want a buffer this is it
It also can be a sub healer or a main healer if your talents are stacked right. I highly recommend this class if you like a unique and challenging playing style.
If you are choosing to be a Bard
- support bard
Trees - Light, Water, Wind
This is a quickly made guide to help you choose a class. If you like how the class sounds then try it. Some of these Descriptions will be argued about. If you want to know more about the classes then go to there forum pages.
