POPULAR

So everyone has a favorite class. Some people are enthusiasts about some classes more than others. Some people just plain play one class better than others. They main certain classes in woe or PVP, maybe even a different one in MVPing.

 

I feel like identifying this has to have some use, but I just don't know what it would be. For your peers to know where your street cred is, or your guildies to know who'd be best fit on a given class in an ET run or other instance, that sort of thing.

 

Is this the sort of thing that could be popular in signatures on the forum? I don't know. It's just an idea. Maybe someone else can theorize that. Or maybe this thread can just be a place for people to soapbox where their own proficiencies are.

 

I'd use a rating system like this:

 

S Rank

You know how all of the skills work (or all of the useful ones, anyway). You give build and leveling advice to people on the forums or in game about this class, since you're the guru on it. You spend the most of your zeny buying toys for this class when they become available. If you see someone else doing something awesome with this class, you know exactly how to reproduce it without asking any questions or doing any research.

 

A Rank

You're always comfortable playing this class. You know how all of the skills work (or all of the useful ones, anyway). You spend a lot of your zeny buying toys for this class when they become available. If you see someone else doing something awesome with this class, you probably know how to reproduce it without asking any questions, and may need to do only a research research for a skill or item you're rusty with.

 

B Rank

You know a good amount about this class, and people probably won't call you a noob when you talk about this class publicly or try to play the class competitively. You have some decent gears for this class, but you have some improvement available to you. You have to watch youtube videos or read threads about this class in order to reproduce any of its particularly cool tricks, but the run of the mill stuff you already have down.

 

C Rank

You've played the class a few times and you weren't horribly bad at it. You're still kind of learning it. You're not terrible, but nobody would ever accuse you of being particularly good at the class either. You have only basic gear for the class, and need build advice from the forums or guild members. You're perplexed when you see someone else with this class doing a lot more damage than you, or getting through tough situations you know would flatten you.

 

D Rank

You're not good at this class. You have some peripheral knowledge of how the class works, maybe from watching other people play it, or just having broad knowledge about RO. You could hop on this character and not be useless, but you'd definitely be dragging a party down a little with how uninspiring your skills are at this. You have little to no gear for this class aside from what you borrowed from a class you're better at that just so happens to be equippable.

 

F Rank

You're terrible at this class. You look like a headless chicken when you run around on this class, and people are constantly asking you what the heck you're doing, because you're not only supposed to be doing something else than what you're doing, but the thing you're doing, you're doing it badly to boot.

 

Summary

You may not have an S, or even an A if you're still new to the game or 'too casual' to be any particular shade of competitive. In fact a newer player may have to rank all of their stuff from F to C. While a "pro" player may never fall below "D" due to peripheral knowledge of all classes due to knowing how all of RO's mechancis work.

 

My own Proficiencies as an example:

For me I'd say my Class Rankings for personal proficiency would be:

 

Performer (S) > Genetic (A+) > Archbishop (A-) > Ranger (B +) > Rune Knight (B-) > Sorcerer (C+) > Shadow Chaser © > Sura (C-) > Royal Guard (C-) > Guillotine Cross (D+) > Mechanic (D) > Warlock (D-)

 

If you've been around this forum a while you've probably noticed I always weigh in on performer and genetic threads, often on bishop threads, and rarely on ranger or sorcerer threads. But you'll never see me comment on guillotine cross or warlock issues. That's because I literally don't chime in on stuff I have no clue about. Sorry if that bursts the bubble of some haters out there. :P

I really like these threads.

Everyone puts their soul in their posts, vigorously and deeply evaluating their skills and knowledge of the classes, and don't give a single thought about the other's posts.

It's like most social interactions, mainly the ones involving appearance. Everyone is in a constant paranoia of "oh... what will they think of muh hair, muh clothes, muh pimples, how will they judge me?!", and in the end no one cares about the other "performance", after all the are confined in the same paranoia. And even if they weren't, these things wouldn't matter that much in their judgement.

And those professional conversations/public presentations, where the person is in deep thoughts of his speech, and ends up not even listening to the other's. 

Don't worry. In the begining it makes you kinda sad, after some time you just become a avid spectator of the human comedy.

Edit: btw, I am the example of this. Get a load of how much i wrote.

lol, so mean

 

All warfare is based on deception. Hence, when we are able to attack, we must seem unable; when using our forces, we must appear inactive; when we are near, we must make the enemy believe we are far away; when far away, we must make him believe we are near.

i like the idea of this but tbh it looks hella terrible to be doing it for every single class lol. even though i have almost every class, i would only do it for maybe the three (or four at the absolute most) classes that i play on a semi regular basis

 

maybe i wouldn't feel this way if i wasn't garbage at most classes, but i think it just looks excessive to list every job lol

 

edit:

 

scholar - B+

minstrel - A

high priest - A

high wizard - B

No that'd be like D rank. You'd understand one superficial thing about a class and only the bare minimum gear to make it work. Autocast mental strength sura is also a d rank thing. Its a superficial one note misuse of a class that shows no greater understandding of the multitude of other things the class can do better.

Sorcerer (caster) (SS)

I actively test builds with my 9 sorcerers and theory craft when new gear comes out.

Everything else is like C-D ranking with decent gear.
