Is this class immersive?

idk if immersive is the right word but I want a class that really makes you focus while still having fun. thief is one option but everyone bad mouthing its late game is putting me off so I'm thinking of going HG

example of a class I assume isn't immersive is bersker since they seem to just be about spamming. no reacting or anything

    So how is it going with HG so far? I am just starting and have hard time deciding about class to main. HG is at top as I have weak spot for engineer, technology classes in RPGs. How is his self sustain? Medpack to weak compared to Berserkers and Priests amazing self sustain?

    I have both a Thief and a Heavy Gunner, so i'll try and shed some light on it.

    There's nothing wrong with Thief. It's just trickier than other classes to play.

    As for Gunner,
    The Medpack ability for Heavy Gunner heals a large chuck of HP, but there is also a moderate cool down timer for it, so it's not something you can spam.

    Gameplay wise, you'll be managing ability timers, and you have to stand still to use certain abilities appropriately but you probably have the longest range in the game with your abilities. You also get two dashes as a form of escape or moving around.

    Finally have time to play and after deciding between Knight and Gunner for main went with second. That soft spot for technology classes did it for me. Now cant wait to get around lvl 50 to properly get feel for Gunner class. Cant wait.

    I chose HG for gameplay, actually. Like with all "ranger" archetypes, I like how it gives me a lot of control over the boss zone and how there isn't a whole lot of micro required to bring out the best of the class. Between HG and Archer, I think the additional power of HG allows me to better exploit opportunities, even at the cost of consistency and speed. And of course, the best SP regen of all the classes.

    That said, it's challenging to use HG optimally in dungeons or with bosses more mobile than you are, so I think there's plenty to make HG immersive or engaging.

    Nothing in this game is immersive.
    But as long as you're having fun that's fine I guess
