    Thief, by far.

    High mobility, poison damage (not physical), huge spike, short CD CC.

    Thief looks like it may have quite the edge. Wish they weren't so weak in pve though...

    So far from doing a couple in house 1v1s and stuff, thief and knight both seem really strong. Wiz is pretty good too. Zerkers are overrated. Have not seen a single good one. They just get kited and destroyed by everyone. Archers seem like pretty trash

    it seem overrated cause the ones calling him an op beast never will main him or let alone play him and see for themselfs hes garbage in pvp compare to others. not sure if he become that op beast everyone think he is [when he get awaken] probably not though.

    Id say its more based on what perks you have, where you put your points, how you play your character and what gear you have. Theres no right or wrong answer if you know what youre doing regardless of whether close combat or range.

    Definitely feels like Thief is the strongest here, they have really high burst damage and very high mobility and single target CC. If you just try to run away from them they just poison lob until you decide to engage them, where they use their 4, quick dashes (one of them being damage dealing), somersault to lock you in place for a surprise attack for huge burst damage, then you either sit there and try to fight back after losing a ton of health, or dash away in which case the thief can just wait for cooldowns to rinse and repeat.

    In Korea, most top pvpers are Strikers and Thieves, as well with Assassins due to their crit chance and crit dmg however assassin is much more difficult than Thief, they say. When I had an assassin alt, I could see why actually to be a competitive Assassin is harder than Thief.

    Then honestly all classes have their own advantages and disadvantages in PVP, let's start with Berserker. If you fail bloodlust (the skill where you absorb opponent's HP), high chance to lose. If with Assassin, you don't manage to hit your opponent that much while having crit buff, high chance to lose. It's all about yourself to focus on your class rotation.

    What's the priest advantage? I can't find any.
    Short range, half of it's abilities are useless (healing and buffs), no good CC, poor damage...

    totaly depends on what kind of PvP we get in December.

    Classes like Assassin can be top or bottom tier depending on if we get a high dmg fast paced PvP "Balance" or slow paced mediocre dmg PvP "Balance"

    If this is world PvP then knight I don't think we can even lose because we spin2win. I did it to a barbarian twice today he died once and he came for me again within a minute to die the same way. This tells me two problems one which is knights spin is unbeatable and needs to be fixed and that my opponent can just come back within a minute without any real penalty if I kill him to do things in the area I want at least 3 minutes without him being able to challenge me again.
