I'm pondering trying out a new class. I should be able to tri-trans upon my selection but I am unsure which one I should pick. Sentinel, Runewarden, Occultist and Magi are the few classes that have peaked my interests once I returned to the game. I was wondering if anyone could share some insight on these classes. i.e. how they hunt, how is PvP with each class, how much of a learning curve they have, and how much do you have to invest into the class with artefacts.
I hear Occultist relies a lot on rng and pretty decent coding but they are extremely deadly when things click. Squishy and I have no idea how they stand in Ashtan now that the new houses were made.
Knight classes seem to be full of min-maxing to be effective but I hear they are decent hunters. Have four specs to choose from but dual-cutting and SnB seem to outshine all the rest.
Magi switched to salve pressure and I believe they still have the damage potential but they aren't the raging powerhouses they once were with full arties. No idea how they hunt.
As for Sentinel, I really have no clue. The only forestal class I remember fighting was Sylvan and they were a big pain. Dealing with both damage pressure and heartseed was a crucial.
