There used to be a funny stick figure infographic about the classes and what they were like to play. I'll have to go find it.
The link I posted on the previous page of the full album still works. I have no idea if it's still accurate, though, since I just started playing again after a 1+ year break and haven't been PvPing and of course there are two new classes now.

I've been playing it since the Steam release semi-regularly.  I picked the new class (of course) the Gunner, which is, as far as I can tell, kinda imba right now.  In conjunction with the "you're new take this! try this! bonus! limited time! double xp!" crap they flood you with it seems ludicrously easy to level up.  I enjoy the combat, and the way the skills chain together is kind of cool but I'm assuming that once I get to a certain point in the leveling curve it will turn into a mandatory group / gear score / daily rep grind thing and I'll stop playing.  It's a fun game though.

You can easily solo to the cap just the leveling curve gets a bit monotonous and you stop getting flash new stuff. It's just an I'll gear rng grind at cap.

I made it pretty close to max level last go round, but the journey from 40+ is an absolute slog. Not sure if it's better now; double xp might make it palatable.

Is it possible to link your old account to your Steam account? If so I might fire it up again; I think I was having problems launching it.

I gave the game a go twice years ago when it was new. I never made it out of the 40s.

Someone just needs to lift the combat system straight out and put it in a decent game.  Hopefully Crowfall :P

It looks like Black Desert has a twitch combat system too, though it can be hard to tell cause 95% of people's Twitch streams are them riding around (slowly) on horses or standing around in towns for some reason...

The gunner class is hilariously OP and fun, I don't think I've been near death ever, plus now I have the healbot!

And the next class is VI from League of Legends.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3ixEniV8K38

Holy shit, that is literally VI. Riot ought to sue (if they weren't already ripping shit off from other properties left and right).  ACK!

I've tried this on and off for the last couple of weeks. It's very pretty and the combat is actually half-decent, but the complete lack of control customisation and quite possibly the world's worst MMO UI are massively hindering my ability to enjoy it. That, and the creepy-ass bait-race and the creepy-ass players that play them.

I chose Slayer as the Gunner just sort of broke my ridiculous barrier. The biggest guns in Phantasy Star Online weren't that crazy; it's like someone designed a class that would make Cable's techno-organic dick explode. Slayer, on the other hand, has some nice maneuverability and utility attacks but feels pretty good hacking into things. But man, I'm fighting the system tooth and nail. It's so awkward to actually play. And it feels, outside of combat, one of the most dated MMOs out there, like EQ/DAoC levels of game mechanic backwards.

Head scratch You can customize the controls.

I don't think the UI is that bad. The main issue is that it's not the standard hold mouse button down to mouse look MMORPG UI -- it's the PlanetSide always in FPS shooter mode unless you explicitly press a key to turn on your cursor UI. It takes a while to get used to if you are used to the standard MMORPG controls.

In the interest of fairness (and general curiosity) I downloaded Neverwinter to try today... it doesn't feel like a very finished game. TERA is total showmanship, big animations, crazy graphics... Neverwinter just sort of shuffles in looking like it got up late and forgot what it was supposed to be doing today. The character customisation was leaps and bounds better (hello Cryptic) but the overall result didn't seem to make much difference when everything looks so dated. And the animation... was honestly so bad I'm not sure I can be bothered to play. Oh yeah, and it does the stupid combat/cursor toggle shit too, only it's not quite as obnoxious as TERA's. Who in the name of fuckery thought that was a good idea?

I don't think you understand the point of playing a 1st or 3rd person shooter with the mouse if you are complaining about the cursor toggle.

Well, no. Because I'm playing a fucking MMO. Overlaying a redundant mechanic from a completely different type of game doesn't make my experience better.

The map is what kills me. Instead of having a large map for navigation and a minimap for orientation like every other MMO ever, there's a world map that is half-usable and a radar that is half-usable and a minimap that covers a third of the screen ALL THE TIME and doesn't auto-center. What.

Tera has a great UI, great animations, amazing combat. The only thing that was an issue was that there wasn't anything to do.

I haven't played since the last new class, but it was pedo  race only so I never bothered. I'll have to try the gunner today.

The gunner class is amazing fun. The fist class looks crazy. Actually I think that's the best way to describe the whole game until endgame.

Reading this I got curious as to what the "bait race" and "pedo Race" were. So I looked at the wiki

Wait until you see the level 20+ armor.  My thong ogling skill has risen to +12.  There is literally a plumbers crack visible and severe under boob is replaced by severe side boob. Oh ho ho ho. Reallllly?

level 20? Does it mean the new class goes through full leveling, instead of the express thing they did with reapers?
