Have you ever wondered what class you should choose before you make your first character?
I took out all the information from other threads, and merged them into this thread to help YOU
decide what YOU
want to try first in Scarlet Blade.
You might want to check out some class videos
as well to help you make your decision.
Please help and contribute as much as possible to this guide.
Highest HP and Defense (Tank Class)
Debuffs and Silence
HP and Defense buffs, as well as a attack buff that takes away hp per second.
One of the best end-game PvP classes
Melee class, can be taken down easily from a distance if there is no medic to support you, or your def/hp isn't high
Useless at tanking and killing at lower levels/unfunded
Can be killed if kited and unexperienced
High HP and Defense
Ranged hooking and stun skill (Hooks in the target then stuns them, lethal against ranged characters)
Mid-ranged and Melee class
AoE Silence and Melee AoE burning
Defense buffs (Second-best defense skill in game)
Fastest grinder and farmer
Best in PvP/Battlegrounds at early levels
Not as good late-game, but can gain lots of kills from burning
Not really a tank class
Disadvantaged against ranged classes because it is a melee class
High attack and crit/crit attack in stealth
Deadly to ranged classes
AoE Silence and Stun
Lots of evasion, accuracy, critical and move speed buffs that are OP
Low hp/defense (to be confirmed)
Stealth is useless against Sentinels with passive stealth detection
Will be ganked once stealth is off in battlegrounds
Best late-game PvP class
Evasion/VOID, Attack and Detection buff circles
Powerful debuff with only a 30 second cooldown
Skill that makes you immobilized, but greatly increases your attack, crit and crit attack.
Some attacking skills have the biggest AoE range in game
Close-ranged stun skill (for escape)
Slowest move speed
Long casting times and animation
Only shines late-game
Ranged single target killer
Highest move speed and attack speed
Passive stealth detection
Ranged and melee stun
Defense and Protection debuffs
Move speed, critical, evasion and defense buffs
Best attack passives
Worst HP and Defense (squishy)
Is meant more for support, while Punishers are meant more for attack.
3rd highest HP and Defense
Heal (single and AoE)
Single buffs: Health, Defense, Evasion
AoE buffs: Attack, Critical, Accuracy
Ranged stun, AoE slow and ranged immobilize
Mech dramatically increases attack and move speed (can 1/2 hit everyone)
Mech form doesn't have debuffs/disable
If you go for a healing/buff build, you lose a lot of damage (unless you're in a mech) but you'll be very hard to kill and sought after (for parties and to kill). If you go for a damage build, your heals and buffs will be a lot weaker.
Lower damage than other classes
Runs out of SP quickly
Since healing is based from % of target HP, every class must increase their Max Health as much as possible. It is recommended to find a party in Battlegrounds to gain shared Exp and to heal your teammates.
You can use your healing skill while moving on foot
Top DPS (Damage per second) based on attacks (excluding CH-ATT):
2. Shadow Walker
5. Sentinel (Note that Sentinels have the fastest speed in-game which makes up for their lack of damage)
Top End-Game PvP Class:
3. Medic (gains heaps of points from healing)
4. Whipper/Shadow Walker
