    A Guide To Choosing Your Class

    So, I know that there may be a guide to this already but I don't know so I wanna make sure that this stuff is covered. Alright, some people have been wondering what classes do what and which class should they choose? Before I explain each class here is some terms your going to need to know:

    AoE: Area of Effect
    DPS: Damage Per Swing
    DoT: Damage Over Time
    HoT: Heals Over Time
    Tank: A guy/gal that is specialized to take lots of damage and survive the longest.

    Witch-Doctor: AoE/DoT: If you want a class that deals damage constantly then the Witch-Doctor is a class you'll love. However your going to need to defeat your enemies fast, because a Witch-Doctor is not a master of defence or healing. (I am going to be a Witch-Doctor )

    Privateer: HoT/Heals/Minor-Minor DPS: So, your not exactly into hurting your enemies and prefer to be a complete survialist. As a Privateer your companions are your weapons. As a Privateer you'll be able to quickly heal yourself while your enemy comes around and deals DPS. However, battles can be long and if your companion is defeated your going to have to rely on your HoT's while you deal damage.

    Bucanneer: DPS/Tank: Healing, pssssh. If your a person that wants to defeat your enemies swiftly before they can even think, a Bucanneer is perfect for you. Bucanneers are natural tanks and DPS. Your companion won't be that useful because all you need is your armor and sword and your ready to go out adventuring!

    Swashbuckler: DoT/DPS: So stealthy that they could sneak right pass your gaze, but you can't be stealthy wearing twenty layers of thick-steel-armor. As a Swashbuckler you'll be able to deal plenty of damage to your foes but however, your foes can easily take you down with a few rounds of attacks. Taking your foes down fast is going to be a Swashbuckler's modo.

    Musketeer: DPS/AoE: Able to do a good ammount of damage and disable the enemy from attacking, if your not a fan of being hurt a Musketeer is for you. Setting traps and dealing DPS. However, if your traps fail then there is a chance that your enemy can get too close to you and defeat you.

    Tell me if you find any bugs in the thread, thanks!

    Yeah, I didn't want to say: This class is DPS and AoE and on the comments someone would say: "A Witch-Doctor does, Doodle Parrot Stalks?"

    Re: A Guide To Choosing Your Class

    I'm a Witchdoctor, and what you're saying is true. At a point, Witchdoctor's do get the ability to heal, especially if they are doing Privateer as their secondary class. Our defense if low, so it's hard to solo the game at some points. Great information.
