Either way,if you choose to be ninja you would be sucky at health and defense,which will make you have more chances in dying in pvp but of course those bots could be ended with your blade in a fast time,rogues on the other hand are BALANCED so they will give you some pros and cons,but,keep in mind that rogues can be sometimes beaten by ninjas,(sometimes)if ya wanna defeat helena ya better choose goose…oh wait choose ninja so its easier.but will give you some disadvantages against samurais who have high health and defense.hope i helped

the ninja has a harder default attack than any other class in the game, also they have the highest agility, so they move the fastest and hit the hardest and have the widest attack arc, now when you look at skills, the ninja has invisible (from my understanding it functions like one turn of invincibility), clone (teleports you at random and makes two stationary copies that fade at the end of the next turn), and caltrops (which can limit the battlefield but shouldn’t be expected to do any real damage as most players will avoid them). So the ninja (apart from the fury) has no damage skills, but excellent escape options, making them hard to pin down and good at harassing and saving their ep. The rogue has backstab (a passive 1.5 boost to damage when you hit someone in the back), poisoned blades (which does damage over time, forcing the other player to act under sustained pressure), and throat slice (a short range radial grab that stuns and does good damage). So the rogue has a lot of offensive options, but no escapes, this makes them very capable of dealing TONS of damage very quickly, yet more easily pinned and manipulated than the ninja (who can get out of practically any situation).

Rogues have more damage potential. Ninjas seem to be able to attack and then run around for rest of fight….making a very boring fight…..

Yeah, but I always see a lot of ninjas in high level, so that means that ninja’s better than Rogue? sorry about my english, I’m from Brazil x.x

more people doesn’t always equal better, especially in a game like this, which I consider to be fairly balanced, I’d imagine that most of the internet has the reaction of OMFG IMA NINJA PWNZORS TIEM!!!!

which would of course lead to a very inflated playerbase being a ninja for no real good reason, not that they don’t have their merits, but they are not strictly better than rogue, just as rogue is not strictly better than ninja, if you want a this is better than that answer then I am afraid I cannot help you, as you would be seeking an imbalance, and given how active the developers are in the game imbalances can be expected to change, thus your “better” class will be weakened in a few updates, then perhaps buffed, then nerfed and so on, try to match the class to your playstyle and you will ultimately be happier, and besides when you ask questions like these you’re only getting people’s opinion 90% of the time, and opinions are only accurate for the person giving them, so just make your own choice for your own reasons.

very well said nhbdy.

just stick to the playstyle that suits you best.

I agree, but it can be a little difficult to find what playstyle suits you best at the moment. As you only get to (effectively) try one class. Maybe a tutorial on different classes would be a good addition to the game.

@gara

well you CAN see the skills in advance and the wiki does a fair job at summing up what each class is supposed to play like (and the devs have been adjusting the classes if they have seen problems with them) so I’d say this only really applies to the first warrior vs thief choice, I knew exactly what the tier three classes were like before choosing mine

Well nhbdy, thank you for your advice about ninja and rouge, i still haven’t figured out what to choose yet but I need one last bit of information… what class did you turn out with and what your opinion is on that class.

 
Flag Post

For future references… I can say that the more newbie friendly class is the rouge as it is a very straight-forward play style than that of the ninja which has a slightly more complex set of skills.

ninja sucks, especialy if you combine assault pants and assault suit ( the 1st golden frame armor on ninja) your defense bonus = 0 ZEROOOOOO, and bandit armor set from thief class give more protection that ninja set

and once you get poison by rogue, rogue can just running around like crazy or and you died by poison DAMN

I’m currently a lvl 34 knight. I don’t know about everybody but I think ninja is better because of its greater agility and attack. Ninja offers you greater escape options like Caltrops and Cloning but at the same time, doesn’t boast of good offensive skills. You need to rely on the skills offered for the thief class especially Stun Kick and Dagger Fury. I, at most times hesitate to fight because of its higher strength because its one attack can produce more damage which is slightly dangerous in forest like conditions where they have a greater chance of escaping. Also, their attack range and angle gives them superior advantage in close combats especially in bridge.

So, my advice to you is if you want quickly finish off the bots especially Helena and the pirates, then choose ninja. Also, if your play style is attack and escape type, choose ninja.

Now, let’s come into the next class Rogue. It is one of the underrated classes of this game with Knights. If you like the adrenaline rush in your veins and want to live on the edge, then this is the option for you. Because if you are rogue, then you are probably the best class to go in close combat with your move set of offensive skills like Throat Slice and Poison Blade. I personally feel that Poison Blade is as good as Stun Kick because it deals regular damage to your opponents HP which brings him under a lot of undue pressure. Also, the Thief’s skills help in maintaining you as the one dominating the battle.

But, both Ninja and Rogue have very similar weaknesses of having a very poor defense and HP which is probably the only reason behind the superiority of Knight and Samurai classes.

Last point that needs to be mentioned here is the rare armor that is available for both the classes. If you are able to unlock the complete rare armor (Top, Pants and Weapons) of a Ninja, then probably you are the most strongest player in strength which can give you cutting edge over any other player including the Samurai class. On the other hand, rare armor of the Rogue class is not as majestic as the ninja class but good enough to cause problems to even the most experienced players.

This is the complete explanation of both the classes. I hope this helps you in choosing the class of your desire. According to me, choose the class which suits your style of play.

hey guys im ninja now….and its soo cool it has more damage than the other classes but lesser defense but i really like it because its so cool

A good choice? Maybe take the rogue as class and then level-up as a ninja. The only bad thing is that you will lose a level-up, but you will have the ninja attack-oriented stats AND the rogue attack-oriented skills.

Otherwise you can pick the ninja skills and the rogue more balanced stats, it’s up to your choice!

I picked rogue, mostly for skills. Sure ninja escape skills are good, but backstab and throat slice are very powerful as well. Remember getting stun kicked to death by thiefs? Well say hello to throat slice, it does more damage, has a bigger range and although it uses more EP, you can still use it two times in a row and if your enemy is really unlucky during the stun (or sometimes just in combat) you have a chance of hitting them in the back resulting in x1.5 modifier from passive backstab. I don’t know much about poison (skipped it), but if it suits your style then it can be helpful as well.

i think i would prefer ninja, you can tell ninja is weak, but ninja’s power is so trong and can kill his/her enemy quickly

Ninja mate. Trust me. Ninjas are pretty much the strongest at Attack, I mean, I’ve done like 30 1Hit kills on PVP. But just a warning, Ninjas are also really crap at HP, I mean, seriously crap. The greatest think about the Ninja is their Abilities, they know most of the best abilities in the game.
