Which classes are overplayed?

Post#1 » Mon Sep 28, 2020 2:15 pm

I'm just trying to get an idea of the general ratio of classes played vs classes in demand. I have tried out quite a few classes and I feel like I enjoy them all so far, but I feel like it's time to pick a main. I have heard DPS Archmages are low demand, but not much up-do-date information on this subject and I'd like your feedback.

So far I'm probably enjoying BW and IB the most, and there are clearly more of the former than the latter. But maybe that's relative to current demand. What are the "always in demand" classes and which ones are too multitudinous?

No-where near enough DPS Archmages, most AMs are healers. Definitely a fun class to play as well.

Shamans in your coffee, shamans in your tea,
Spiking your brew with mushroooms and cackling evilly ;)

Most overplayed classes? WP, BW, Sorc, dps versions of non-dps classes (tanks&heals).
RoR: Burszui SH, Ropopuch SHM, Laiste MAG || Ginnar IB, Volundr ENG ++ REV guild ++
Live: Karak Izor -> Karak Norn (Yarpaen IB, Ginnarr SL, Volundr ENG - Ithilmar's Chosen)

Tanks (especially knights) and healers (RP and WP) are always high demand

DPS healers,especially AM and Shaman are definitely not needed

AM , WL , Engie , Shams , Choppas.
Silently we bide our time
Soon we'll pay you back
For all the wrongs you've done our kind
For the stabwounds in our backs

In my opinion, Order needs more:
  • Sword Masters
  • Slayers
  • Engineers (with magnet)
  • Rune Priests
  • Archmage (heal spec)
Classes that are already well represented/common:
  • Knight of the Blazing Sun
  • Bright Wizard
  • Shadow Warrior
  • Warrior Priest

Forgot WL and wall-engis for the "common" category (yes thats a spec)
Nonoffensive - WE
Faceburn - BW
+ tons of misc alts

~ First rr100 WE on live.
~ First WE with 1+ million RvR kills on live.
