    Nvm, I just checked it
  • Let's see:
    PvP -
    Overpowered: Valk (maybe gunner with the new buffs)
    Strong: Archer (one shot radiants, traps etc) sorc (a skill for every occasion), brawler
    Alright: Warrior (pretty horrible in large scale PvP, but the king of 1v1's), Slayer (one shoting healers since 2012 )
    Bad:Berserker (hardest and slowest class to learn imo)

    In PvE:
    Op: Valk, slaying zerk
    Blah blah blah ( you have the chart)

    You have to screw up pretty badly to actually die as a valk, considering it's a leather class that doesn't suffer from archer/slayer's low health or reaper's low endurance, has a double iframe with 4 second cooldown a backstab with 12 second cooldown and of course balder's tears.

    i would increase gunner rank since we are getting the buff for them tomorrow


    Oh, what rank would you increase Gunner to with the buff? And would you, or anyone here, decrease Valks when they get their nerf? If so, how far would you guess they'd fall to?

    Thanks again you guys!! Glad to see all classes are decent.
    Unfortunately, what the tier placement doesn't say is that the difference between S-tier and C-tier is about 75%. 1 Valk is worth almost 2 of Gunner/Ninja.

    Good valks don't need to use balder's tears because they won't die if they don't use it. And if you use your roll to survive, you still get the bloodflower resets from dodging. You don't have to choose between using it for survival and using it for dps. I'm amazed some valks thinks their deaths are caused by the fact they get rewarded for well timed dodging. It's the classes that always lose dps when they have to dodge that have a real problem.
  • when valkery get nerf and they stop every reaper aoe from steggaring it wil be balance lol

    Yep, it works out to about that in the data set the ranking uses.

    In the meantime, anyone can check MG and look at averages, since most people will be that -- average. The biggest differences level out to be about ~25% at most, I think? Most classes are much closer.

    I mean, if aiming to be mediocre is your thing, go for it...

    Overpowered, broken: Valkyrie
    Okay: Warrior, archer, reaper, berserker, sorcerer
    Less dps than a brawler, therefore useless: Gunner, ninja, slayer

    gunner? hmm maybe no longer the case
  • Thanks so much for the feedback you guys!!
    I'm having a lot of fun on my valk, but I wanted to know if leveling certain alts was worthwhile. It's nice to know leveling my sorcerer will be worthwhile in PvP! =)

    slaying = be bellow 50% hp and use a slaying crystal
    same could be applied to slayer, no?

    well, zerkers have a passive on lethal strike(?) that increases their crit power(?) when they're below 50% hp, so you basically replace thunderstrike with lethal strike and u do a lot of dps

    slayers only benefit from slaying with fury strike having more dps the lower hp u are (u have to be really low to do lots of damage vs zerker only has to be 49.9%)

    Fury strike doesn't have any crit boost, lots of whites.
    Fury strike doesn't contribute high enough damage compare to measured slice and bugged UOHS. It doesn't have that much impact to slayer's overall damage unlike zerk's lethal strike and vampiric blow.
    Fury strike's scaling is awkward. it is 130% of tooltip damage when you have 40%~50%HP and 150% when you are between 30%~40%HP. It requires you to keep your HP extremely low to deal significant damage.

    Slaying slayer used to be a thing during RG score run lol.

    It made a resurgence in RMHM since it's pretty easy to keep your hp at a certain level.

    Not so much in the new dungeons. Plus having an even harder time critting.
