    Thats like asking which is better.
    Chocolate cake or Vanilla Cake.

    It all goes to preference.
    Me being a mystic I would say mystic.
    Though an archer may say Archer etc.
    so it all depends.
    Besides there is no best class.
    Its how the user is that counts.

    both are very good pk classes, both deal lots of damage from range quickly, archers with arrows and mystics with fast channeling spells. i love my archer, but i find mystics to be 2nd most deadly enemys after assassins. mystics can heal and attack almost simaltaniously, and they also have decent pets and defensive skills to make them much less squishy then other casters.
    both are fun to play though
    its really up to you, i just like the fact that you are choosing them over assassins, which are clearly the best pk class, requiring almost no effort to play

    well i have a lvl 100 sin which i use most for pk, but to be honest sins are not the best pk class in the game anymore. im not a cash player and dont have r9 +12 armor with a g16 +12 weapon, so i know i dont do much damage compared to others. BUT i know that i pk with my mystic and seeker as well and my 82 mystic has killed 100 barbs and my seeker isnt geared for pk he is mostly just a pve bully but can deal loads of DoT. but to each their own.

    I sorta thought we were talking about archers vs mystics, and not barbs, sins, or seekers. -1 for those who were steering this topic in the wrong direction. Also I'd say between an archer and mystic in pvp, an archer would own a mystic. Reason being, an archer endgame has a bow that can purge the mystic's behind and crit them to death. But that doesn't mean a mystic can't kill an archer just as easily, now does it?
    Do you hate me? Good, that makes for an adequate conversation starter.

    Mystic is one of the tougher matchups against an archer. Similarly if an archer catches anyone offguard they should be worried (aside from barbs >.>)

    Mystics have Salvation's shield, and a lot of seals to make an archers life hell (I duelled one for afew hrs last night, it was hell o.o).

    Archers have a stun, a freeze, the largest range in the game, Armor made from paper and you get to pew pew things.

    Mystics can heal, Nuke, have pets, seal, and be tanky with Salvation.

    The choice is yours.

    It would have been dead if it were left alone. Now it's undead.

    Good thing I have four white mages with holy as my party.
