This Class and Character Creation Guide is a general overview of all of the available classes in Black Desert Online.

I have included class tier rankings based upon character creation stats visible inside the character builder.

After reading this guide, you should have a better understanding of which classes you would like to research more.

 

HAPPY Character Creation!!

 

NOTE: Always take class guides with a grain of salt. You’re a smart cookie. So you know that the best class is the one you enjoy the most! No matter how high tier a class is, if I don’t absolutely love the class, then it’s a squeaky mouse to me, because I won’t play it! πŸ™‚

 

TIP: You can now create Trial Characters that are level 60. Read more details below.

Class Importance During Character Creation

BDO Character Creation Skin Color

Trinity Roles in BDO?
Classes in BDO are not typical of traditional MMORPG’s. For example, the β€œtrinity” of tank, damage dealer, and healer classes are not required in BDO. Any rag tag group of adventurers will probably be successful, as long as they are the correct level and have good gear. Solo play is usually the norm in BDO, especially at lower levels. With the help of potions, any class can easily heal and regenerate power for themselves. There are plenty of group activities to take part in, but you don’t have to scrap the whole party just because you can’t find a healer or tank.

Class Balance in BDO?
IMHO there are no bad classes in BDO. Just play and have fun. Trying to always have a META class is an ongoing adventure because the developers frequently change classes to maintain class balance. Then, after a blissful nights sleep, you will wake up to a HAETA instead of META. πŸ™‚

Character Creation Aesthetics in BDO
NOTE: The Character Creator image of the giant with the flaming mohawk was one of the winners in a past Character Creation event called Beauty and Beast. It gives you a little hint into the extreme flexibility and creative freedom players can achieve during Character Creation. You can make your character look like anything you want, from a rainbow bright complexion to a celebrity look alike. There is also a Beauty Album that allows you to sort and edit player made templates.

Class Tier Stats Explained

  • Control: This is a measure of the difficulty in controlling the class. Classes with the highest Control tier, such as the Sorceress, are the most difficult to master. The Berserker class, on the other hand, has a very low Control ranking and is one of the easiest classes to play.
  • Defense: Defense measures the class ability to take damage that hits them. Higher Defense score means this class is better equipped to take damage. Classes with the lowest Defense rank, like Ranger, receive more damage from hits.
  • Combo: A Combo is a combination of key presses in a set order to perform a series of powerful moves. This ranking is a measure of the complexity of key combos available to the class. For the easiest class to play, look for classes with low Combo ranks plus low Control ranks. (like Guardian/Witch/Wizard/Valkyrie/Berserker)
  • Evasion: Evasion measures the class ability to evade attacks.
  • Attack: Attack measures their offensive strength.

Top Tier Classes (Max Rankings)

Best Evasion: Ninja, Kunoichi, and Ranger

Best Attack: Ninja, Kunoichi, Musa, Dark Knight, Lahn, Berserker, Wizard, Witch, Maehwa, Guardian, Drakania

Best Defense: Berserker, Valkyrie, Nova

Highest Control Difficulty: Sorceress, Striker, Ninja, Kunoichi, Hashashin

Highest Combo Attack Complexity: Ninja, Kunoichi, Tamer, Striker, Mystic, Sorceress, Corsair

#1

NOTE: these top ranking classes are according to class stat charts visible during Character Creation and not player opinion/polls.

It’s interesting to note that Ninja, with it’s female counterpart (Kunoichi) have been given top rankings in every category but defense! Do you agree with the developer’s opinion?

  1. Ninja: (longest standing top tier 1v1 PVP class)
  2. Sorceress
  3. Lahn
  4. Ranger
  5. Sage

Most Recent Class Tier Rankings

I am working on a page dedicated to class tier rankings. Follow the link below to cast your vote for the best classes in BDO, depending upon several factors. Ex. Group PVP, PVE, etc.

Class Difficulty: Easiest Classes To Play

The easiest classes to play are classes with low Control and Combo tiers. These classes are Wizard/Witch, Valkyrie, and Berserker. Shai class ranks 0 in Control difficulty and has 2 in Combo. These classes have fewer complex combos and are easier to control than other classes.

If you are looking for a class that has low difficulty, also consider classes that receive the highest Defense rankings. (Warrior and Guardian have 3 out of 4 in Defense. Top ranking in Defense are Valkyrie, Berserker, and Nova.)

These class tiers are the opinion of the developers and may not suit what you consider difficult or easy to play.

Best Beginner Class

Currently the top beginner friendly class, according to player polls is Guardian. I like things simple, and I have to agree. Guardian is my favorite class at the moment and easy for even my slow fingers to master. Ha!

 

The best beginner class is probably the easiest class to play, but maybe you’re up for more of a challenge! Do you like simple controls or enjoy mashing complex key combinations? Do you like heavy hitting attacks or speedy finesse? What’s important to you? It may not be to someone else.

 

Is Guardian Class right for me?
For beginners to BDO, looking for the easiest class to play, most recommend Guardian. This class boasts several benefits to beginners trying out BDO.

  • Easy key combos: with just a few skills, you can tank even the most difficult bosses.
  • High & Cheap Sustainability: Beginners have to worry less about using up precious inventory and weight limits on buying and carrying Mana and HP potions. (Pots are very heavy.) They are more free to focus on obtaining loot and using silver for gear. Guardians have several skills that have great combat + healing ability.
  • Good Reputation: with a little research, you will find the Guardian a popular class. Tier lists report that they are high ranking in both PVE and large group PVP.
Guardian Class

Some people hate Guardian because they say it’s boring and slow, and others love it. To me, it’s not boring at all. I suggest you play a class that looks fun to you at least until level 56. At level 56, all classes can change their play style by using a whole new set of skills.

  • Nova: Wielding a Morning Star and shield Quoratum, which contains powers of the distorted goddess, Nova can attack from mid-range to melee. She is the last remaining heir of Calpheon’s royal bloodline that was erased along with the rise of the republic. Her shield covers her body like an iron fortress, and she can flatten distant enemies with her Morning Star. Nova’s Quoratum is also possessed by the souls of the Thornwood Guard, who follow her every word. By commanding her spirit guards to attack while she remains fortified behind her giant shield, she can effortlessly combine offensive and defensive tactics to overwhelm her enemies.

  • Corsair: Corsair is armed with Serenaca, a flexible blade that can change its length at will, and Mareca, the jewel of the sea that grants the bearer the power of the tides. As a melee fighter, her free-form bladework is made up of fluid combos centered around unique rope movement skills that keep her afloat. No one is quite as spontaneous as the Corsair when she glides about using her rope maneuvers only to suddenly protract her blade and strike her opponents at their most vulnerable moment. Using the mysterious powers of Mareca, Corsair can transform into a mermaid with the ability to summon gigantic waves to crush her opponents as she dances with the Dream Whales from the Lost Sea of Dreams. Like any good seafaring pirate, she can quickly move about in the water and remain submerged longer than others.

  • Drakania: Upon Succession, Drakania calls upon the her fallen kin and strengthens the Shard with their sorrow, grudge, tears, and blood and sets on a quest to restore the paradise of Dragons. As she grieves deeply with their broken souls, Drakania steals even more energy to store it in her shard, from which she can deal powerful damage in succession depending on the amount stored to punish her foes. Her second heart also grows stronger, granting her the ability to absorb the harmful effects of her foes as energy and send it back to damage them instantly. With no room to escape her wrath, the image of her draconic wings will be seared into the eyes of her enemies as they breathe their last
