Suggestions for Selecting your First Archetype

 

Any choice can be fun, so don’t stress over it. Just choose something that sounds fun and roll with it.

 

If you want a

melee damage dealer

try a

Brawler

to run in and stab or slash enemies to death

If you prefer to

blast enemies at range

choose a

Devastator

who can also do a bit of healing or buffing

If you want to

heal and buff your team

we recommend the

Support

archetype. But to play solo, a Devastator might work better.

If you want to

taunt enemies

choose

Tanker

But to play solo, choose Brawler. You’ll do more damage and still be pretty tough.

If you have

transferable skills from other games

consider a

Controller

This skill class has low damage, high buff, or high debuff and optional fighting pets
