I want to make a character that's mainly for farming but I'm having trouble finding much info on this subject. The only info I have found suggests that rogues (gank or bow) and knights (svd/mobbing) are two of the most useful classes in this area so my question is which of these two is most efficient at farming items, gear, and (or) cards? Oh and if they can level quickly that'd be nice bonus. lol

It depends on where and what you are planning to farm.

This.

It depends on where and what you are planning to farm.

And. Most efficient at farming items, gear, and (or) cards? Well if you're talking efficiency, steal/gank pretty much doubles the number of drops you're getting from any monster you kill, mostly if you're hunting common drops. The fact that you can sometimes gank a rare item is a perk. As far as cards go, you can't steal or gank them and if you happen to get lucky enough, you just get an apple in place of the card. I'm pretty sure Knights have the larger damage output though, so I suppose it depends on your class preference as well.

Yeah it depends on what and where you're farming. I like Rogues though. Steal and auto steal stacks, then loot drops upon kill. That's like a 3 in one deal :p_laugh: If it's a low level mob like Mandragora, Sightless Mind is a great AOE for them. Rogues also level quickly due to Double Attack, I'm loving mine so much :p_love:

I thought that too, but it happened to me in Overlook. I was manually Stealing as my Gank level was low. But then right after stealing from a Strouf, Gank activated and surprised me o.O

Edit: You're right, else it will be highly abusable XD Now I'm trying to think back if it was two stroufs stacked upon one another :p_sick:

Thanks for the info everyone! I started a dagger/gank rogue, even got a CK, Alice Doll, and a Robo Eye for him. I have to leech my pure brewer so leveling will be slow but at least i'll make some good zeny! Even found a pretty good guide for rogues: http://www.gamerstem...e.asp?g=838&i=5

Knights are gonna cost you pots for more xp per hour, rogues are cheaper to run but slower to level. Ez

Coal3 has some good farming loot plus chance of SkelWorkerCard. Especially if you're a rogue. Good for leveling 60-75.

If you're hunting high drop rate loots (ie. wss, fabrics, etc...) go with rogue cuz of gank/steal. If you're hunting low drops like gears or cards go with knight mobbing potential and high damage output (more kills during bubblegum).

Yeah - Rogue for common/uncommon loot, knight for rares, particularly cards (since you can't steal cards, or any other item in the 8th drop slot)

Knights are an awful awful class. Go with a Rogue, just to avoid the -_- fest that is a knight.

I regularly change my hairstyles. I get bored easily. This is one of my older pics from when it was blue. Used to be a bit darker blue, but you get the idea.

Side note: I've had firetruck red, neon green, dark blue, hot pink, etc. I'm compulsive.

That's a good idea. I don't have a lot of pics of my hair though (not the most photo-happy photogenic person around). I'll keep that in mind for the future when I dye my hair though.

idk man, SVD knight is pretty sick. I used to swear by flee based characters like rogue / assassin, but after playing an SVD knight id never go with a flee based character again.

The problem with AGI / flee based defense is the fact that your flee is penalized when you have more than a few things attacking you. When you do get hit, you get -_-ing nailed. Lower total health, potions heal for less, and you have crappy natural HP regeneration. Regardless of your flee there's always a 5% chance to get hit or something along those lines.

For farming, it depends on what you want to do. Personally i'd go knight any day over a rogue or assassin.

sins just don't mob, Sin class is strictly 1v1

IF you can take a GX head on. Then the GX had bad gear/skill

or, you have to much money and/or time on your hands .gg
