Korean MMORPG Lost Ark is finally coming to the West, with the founder edition owners getting access to the game early. To cut down on your grinding and progress faster in the game, it is vital to pick the strongest classes. In this article, Gurugamer is going to showcase the tier list for all classes in Lost Ark on release.

1. List of all classes in Lost Ark

There are 5 base classes that can be modified into other Advanced Classes upon reaching level 10. This allows players to further customize their characters.

2. Lost Ark Best Class For PVE

S Gunlancer, Paladin, Bard
A Artillerist, Sorceress, Wardancer, Sharpshooter
B Shadow Hunter, Berserker, Striker, Scrapper, Gunslinger
C Death Blade, Deadeye, Soulfist

Overall, the Hybrid classes are best in Lost Ark PVE. After reaching the group endgame content, the Gunlancer, Paladin and Bard are probably the most sought after, as they provide survivability, sustainable DPS, and support.

Sharpshooter is a very straightforward PVE DPS class.

In terms of raw single target damage, however, the Shadow Hunter is probably the best, in both solo and group play. For ranged DPS, the Sharpshooter is a great high damage option for players who want to deal damage from a distance.

For grinding large amounts of mobs, the Sorceress and Artillerist are the best. They can deal massive area damage with their magic and firepower.

3. Lost Ark Best Class For PVP

S Paladin
A Wardancer, Sorceress, Deadeye, Death Blade
B Bard, Gunlancer, Striker, Soulfist
C Berserker, Scrapper, Sharpshooter,
D Artillerist, Shadow Hunter

The Paladin is a perfect combination of attack and defense, which is strong in both PVP and PVE. A good paladin can prop up a team and is always in high demand. While their DPS is not that impressive, the ability to use either self-buff or party buff makes the class super versatile. Because of that, Paladins can shine in both 3vs3 brawls and 1v1 duels. Other supports such as the Bard are not nearly as useful in PVP, as they are just too squishy.

Paladin can tank, support and deal damage at the same time, which makes it the strongest class in the game.

When it comes to DPS characters in PVP, the Death Blade, Deadeye and Wardancer are probably the best. They can reliably dodge enemies attacks and focus on the backline supports of the enemy team.

4. Which class in Lost Ark has the highest DPS overall?

If you only want to push out the big number, Death Blade or Striker are probably your best bet. The former is your typical assassin class that requires constant micro to climb the DPS chart. The latter is a complicated class that requires a lot of skill to figure out the optimal rotation.
