Black Desert Mobile Guide: Best Classes Tier List
The mobile version of Black Desert Online has finally arrived on the international market, albeit with many changes from the original game. As of now, there are only five classes available in Black Desert Mobile, and more will be added next year.
The five classes available in the game right now are quite different in terms of capabilities to their original counterparts from the Korean version of Black Desert Mobile. That's why even experienced players may find trouble figuring out which of the five hero classes they should pick.
Below you will find the tier list of the best classes in the game from best, which is Tier S, and ending up with the worst, which is Tier D. Also, you will find out which modes each class prevails in, which should help you make the decision on which class to choose.
Tier S: Ranger
- Best in: PvE, PvP
Ranger can do really well in PvP, but this hero's main area of influence is PvE. That's where Ranger's speed and mobility win in every aspect. This also concerns boss fights, which she can deal with easily by using a long bow.
But don't think that long range is the only possible way of killing enemies. Ranger can do just fine in close combat using her swift dagger combos, although you do need to keep up with the healing potions in that case.
Lastly, Ranger would be the best choice for beginners, as it is really easy to grind mobs with it.
Tier A: Valkyrie
- Best in: PvE, PvP
Just like Ranger this class does really well both in PvE and PvP, but Valkyrie is better adapted to PvP. This is also an excellent support class that can heal her teammates and help them recover in the most dire situations.
Besides her spell powers Valkyrie wields a sword and a shield. This makes her the most balanced class in the game yet by having both great defensive and offensive abilities.
The only area where her performance cannot compete with Ranger is in Guild Wars, where Ranger wins due to high mobility and Valkyrie struggles a bit with her combos.
Tier B: Witch
- Best in: Guild Wars
The massive PvP battles of Guild vs. Guild mode is the best position for the Witch class. This hero can do no wrong when it comes to AoEs (mass spell damage).
Unfortunately, the Witch is pretty mediocre in PvE and even worse in one-on-one PvP. The problem in PvE is that she requires a lot of healing to stay alive, and in PvP she will be easily dominated by any other class that can get close to her.
That is why her spells are best used when she can be protected by other players, and then she becomes a truly powerful weapon of destruction.
Tier C: Warrior
- Best in: PvP
The complete opposite of the Witch class is the Warrior.
This hero can be quite overwhelming when it comes to one-on-one PvP combat, and though he is alright in PvE, there is nothing that can stop him when he's fighting against a single target.
Since Warrior can focus effectively only on one target at a time, he can't do much in the Guild Wars. He is definitely recommended as a beginner-level class, due to his high defense abilities.
But other than that, if you're looking at melee combat class, then it's better to pick up Valkyrie as it is a much more balanced class.
Tier D: Giant
- Best in: PvE
Giant is a very heavy and slow, but really hard-hitting class that can prove its worth only against a bunch of enemies. That is why using him in PvP is not the best idea, but you can try him out in PvE and Guild Wars for sure.
In PvP other classes can easily dodge his slow attacks, and if he does get them, they can just as easily run away and heal. So pick this one up only if you like to play with huge characters that wield massive axes.
