Just waiting for the beta clock to count-down...

Brand new to this game and looking for advice on what class to start playing just to get to know the game mechanics before I decide what to build.

So I guess I'm looking for high survivability... ideas?

    I have not tried it and am also waiting. I hear one should avoid the duelist as the devs acknowledge it is not where they want it to be at the moment.

     

    5 more minutes to go!

    From the light tinkering around I did over the weekend I'd say marauder is the easiest.There's so many way's to do things with skill point's via the skill tree.

    The ranger seem's decent also.These are the only 2 I tried out so far,but from what I read marauder look's like the easiest.

    Have fun,it should be open in a few minute's :)

    Some day I'm going to put a sword through your eye and out the back of your skull!

    The Templar seems to have the most tanky type skill nodes immediately next to his starting point. I've played a Templar tank/aoe spells build up to about level 50 and found they are the easiest to keep alive. The aim was to shield charge into the middle of all the mobs and nova the hell out of them while taking the hits. It worked pretty good.

    Might be worth a look.

    the highest survivablity, imho, would be templar.  However, that depends on how you define survivablitity.  At higher levels the Shadow has alot of evasion and can kite like noone else, except maybe ranger.  The Marauder is straight up tank, he mainly relies on blocking and extremely high health.
