Since there are about 120 classes available in ArcheAge, players are easily lost their way in the sheer amount of information, especially if they are a greenhand to ArcheAge or to MMOs generally. So some of the most popular builds are there and which can selected for their efficiency, viability and combo diversity. Today we will share three of them in Archeage.
The first one is Blighter that includes Battlerage, Shadowplay, and Defense. It is a great melee class with a high survivability against archers and warriors. If companied by a healer class, and supposing that the Blighter isn’t up against some mages, a win could even be possible in 2 vs 5 situations. The downsides are, as players could guess, low chances of survival when attacked by mages, and a low motion.
The second one is Shadowblade which includes Battlerage, Shadowplay, and Witchcraft.
This is also a viable melee class, the Shadowblade has more or less lower opportunities of survival in group battles just like compared to the Blighter. While obtain various CC skills, and long combos handling large amounts of damage. Players have a higher mobility, and are better at countering mages.
The last one of today is Darkrunner which includes Battlerage, Shadowplay, and Auramancy.
This class is fundamentally a Shadowblade, geared toward more survivability, and fast strikes rather than long combos. Auramancy effectively provides a decent defense against mage classes, as well as anti-CC skills. Players will mostly depend on their stealth, and backstabbing critical hits to kill opponents as fast as players can before jumping back into stealth.
