I’m having trouble deciding which class I want to main at launch so I thought I would listen to everyone else’s opinions first. What’s your favorite class? What makes it fun? What does your class specialize in?

    Assassin. I enjoy being mobile and attacking from a distance. You are always constantly pressing buttons, and while easy to play in general, very hard to play damage/frame perfect.

    Priest. I really enjoyed healing my friends, and the skills are pretty nice. It's easy to play, and for me satisfying.
    I'll probably main Priest when the game goes live.

    thief is my favourite because it actually requires skill unlike everything else because it is such a tactical and difficult class to play, and this only makes me more determined to get better at it.

    I second Thief, it's a challenge to play well and there are multiple fun skill builds that play differently.

    Wizard, as it allowed me to become the ultimate pyromaniac of mages.

    May the endless flame waves leave a path of pain, suffering, and damage over time in their wake.
    Followed by a healthy forecast of fire tornadoes with light precipitation of magic claws with scattered storms of arcane blasts.

    Some people just want to watch the world burn.

    The only class I really played is heavy gunner but I had a great time on it. The class has bullets, lasers, missiles, and two types of bombardment (actual bomb and then satellite lasers), also a self heal which is nice for pve and not at all useful in pvp. I like shooting a bunch of stuff with my gatling gun. Good class for fighting mobs because of the magnetic grenade which has 3 pulses that pull up to 5 (I think) enemies into the area where it lands. Idk where it really stands on the dps charts but I never felt like I was doing bad dps.

    Also heavy gunner says "pew pew" and "dadadadadadadadada!" which is amazing imo

    Priest.

    Every other class can be as overpowered as they want.

    Damage means nothing if you're dead.

    Also, spammable healing with barely any cost is satisfying.

    I enjoyed Wizard the most because even though you ultimately end up spamming 2 skills (thanks to them gimping the class by removing like 3 skills from the tree), you have the illusion of a choice between various elemental builds and the skills are pretty fun and cool overall. Damage is nice and so is teleport. Maining that when game goes live

    I will play Assassin, lvl 50 in beta, because like fast classes and ranged classes. Assassin is a mix of both. I also started a heavy gunner in beta. The beginning was fun. Jet pack was almost like assassins dash. So no big change in gameplay, yet. Just reached lvl 15 in beta. Will definitely play a heavy gunner as a second character. I like the female voice better from gunner.

    Wizard is my favorite class overall but I gotta say Knight just has it all. (as of closed beta)
    Their attack skills do really good damage, their survivability is A+, AND
    they can actually slash through that top block at the beginning of ludibrium escape that part of the game is LITERALLY UNFAIR

    Priest for me, there's always something satisfying about being able to provide support!
    plus i'm basically a walking health potion, i save you mesos and save me mesos,
    who doesn't like money? i like money

    Wanted to play wizard but with how I ended setting my controls... berserker was way easier and fun to play. Knowing myself I'll probably main berserker but actively play wizard and give assassin and priest a try when game goes live.
