Hi. A little about me before my question... I played a lot of MMOs but never reached max level in any of the ones I remember because I was so busy killing stuff in the low levels feeling like a badass, then when I go to PVP I get my butt handed down to me by the PVP vets.
A long time ago, when I was 12 or so, I used to play text based games when my friend introduced Achaea but I couldn't get into it RP-wise, I think because of the telnet interface and my roleplaying tastes at the time. But now I am liking everything after playing for around 4 hours today. I played a Paladin, a Blademaster and a Monk on three different characters, all of which I enjoyed. Some guy was even kind enough to give me a bag with 15000 gold!
My question is... what is the most badass class. This sounds like a stupid question, and my friend who plays this game did say it's stupid (I called him after about 10 years only to ask him this question). But please hear me out. I already know, accept, and understand that I am not a good pvper at any game I've played but when I do win that one out of a hundredth encounter against someone, what will make me feel like the most badass person in the world? What will keep me going for that second win?
As an example, I used to play GW2 and loved the PVE, but when my friend bought me to the PVP world, I got owned 99% of the time. The one time I won, I knew the guy I beat was a noob, but I still felt good about it. It was the most intense keyboard mashing experience I've ever had and I felt like I needed to lift some weights afterwards, you know. I wonder what you guys think is the kind of class that will maximize this "badass feeling".
I've done my research and it seems the Blademancers are simple and straightforward but I've seen posts that suggests to try a Monk instead. There's also these things called "arties" which I've looked into and it sounds pretty acceptable for making company overhead but I want to minimize any purchases on my end, at least until I know I've decided on my badass pick, then I'll drop some dosh.
Whichever one I pick I understand full well that I am going to get rekt left and right, I know that already because I'm not a mechanically adept player when it comes to gaming, and all this talk about systems and afflictions and scales (some guy named Jovilo keeps talking about scales on snakes) and limbs and stuff which I know nothing about are already driving me crazy. I'll probably need to learn about these things sooner or later but right now, I basically ask the community's opinion on the most newbie-friendly class between Blademaster and Monk that will give the maximum badass factor to jumpstart my Achaean gaming/rp experience.
