Highest DPS

Which class has the highest dps on bosses?

From my experience I think it is the assassin.
However, I wouldn't be suprised if it was necro because they have the pet for more dd.
Berserkers seems to do pretty well at DD as well.

I didn't party with wizards or rangers so no clue there.

necro>assasin>berserker>?ranger?>?wizard?>sage>paladin>priest

Unless I have been lied to wizards have the highest DPS in the game.
Also the squishiest class in the game.

Id say:

1st Zerk/Assa/Sage pretty even in terms of DPS all can take aggro of a tank (a good tank spamming aggro skills) most bosses spawn adds, so its a good way to give the tank a bit time

2nd Necro/Ranger (both get pets, that add to their DPS and they seem to do pretty well)

I dunno where Wiz fits in there, seriously never partied with one in CB

thats just my experience of Dungeons (up to EC) and World Bosses (up to Nazrudin? the Bone Dragon in Scorching Wind)

P.S. DPS= Damage per Second

Sage is not the highest DPS... I can say that for sure.

Besides that, no can really say for sure what the highest DPS class is. We have no proper way of tracking damage done and converting into a readable form (DPS). Because of this, it is hard to tell. Just because someone takes aggro on a boss doesn't mean they're doing the top DPS... some classes may have passive malice modifiers while others may not, or they might be using weapons/armors that increase or decrease malice. Besides that, there are no stable testing environments where we can fight and analyze such things. Melee DPS might be getting stunned, by a PBAOE, while a caster in the back is constantly doing damage (and thus will pull aggro). Another example is if the player is just bad and isn't playing their class right... if a Berserker is just autoattacking and a wolf is spamming skills, just because the wolf took aggro doesn't mean that wolves do more DPS than berserkers. There's so many other things that could happen too.

We just don't know enough and don't have any stable testing enviroments to perform hard data collection.

Besides that, it's just too early to say. Things change greatly at higher levels, not only because of skills, but equipment as well. Some classes might get gear that is better suited for DPS later on, while others might not (for example, the sage level 40 set has no STR... wolf form would suffer during this gear time). Masteries come into play, level 61 skills, the FINAL jobs...

No one knows what the highest DPS is. We just don't know enough and we have no damage/dps data to compare. Play the class you want to play and do your best at it, and that will be enough.

PVP is even more unknown ground because of unstable DEF/MDEF...

Mobs usually scale in DEF and MDEF relatively equally in ratio. A paladin or something else might have 2000 def, and 2500 mdef or something, as an example. Besides that, who knows if there's player damage modifiers on pvp (which I'm pretty sure there is, because I've seen a wizard that crits for 12k on a mob crit for 1k on a player).

PVP is another world. A scary, unknown world that we dare not step into when talking about DPS collection. We can use the numbers we got from PVE to understand how much we're relatively going to hurt in PVP for the most part, but we kinda can't do it the other way around. Let DPS tests remain in PVE.
