The Fighter is basically the tank of the team. They rely on high defenses and attack, and but they are also quite difficult to control. They are the most defensive class in game, and they can act as the tank in any situation.


Weapons: Axe, Sword

Role: Damage, Tank

Attack: 4/5

Defense: 5/5

Control (Crowd Control): 2.5/5

Regen: 0.5/5

Difficulty: 4/5

All of these stats make the Fighter very weak in terms of regenerating their HP (sustain), but very good in terms of tanking the damage and mitigating the damage dealt to the team overall.

They are not extremely easy to play, so I definitely don’t recommend them as a starting class. Their weapons can be either an axe or a sword, so depending on how you choose to play (more towards damage or more towards tanking), choose a weapon mastery to fit your play style.


The Ranger is a class which focuses on damage from a distance, and on keeping the enemies under control. They are quick to fight, but not that keen on taking damage because they don’t really excel at defense.


Weapons: Longbow, Crossbow

Role: Damage, Crowd Control

Attack: 5/5

Defense: 2.5/5

Control: 4/5

Regen: 0.5/5

Difficulty: 3.5/5

The Ranger is a swift killer, which relies upon long ranged attacks and basically staying away from the enemy attacks. They are not super easy to play, and their kit provides a ton of crowd control, which makes them a super important asset when fighting enemies within a group.

They have very high damage, and when you combine that with the crowd control abilities and low defense, it makes the Ranger a pretty difficult class to play – therefore, I don’t recommend it as a starting class unless you are an experienced gamer.


The Dancer is one of the most beautiful and quite interesting classes to play in game. They are easy to control, and also have a very fun kit, not lacking at all on the damage side. They are also masters in regenerating, so they can be pretty good and super useful for any kind of team, no matter if they want a healer or a damage dealer.


Weapons: Twinfan, Staff

Role: Healer, Damage

Attack: 3.5/5

Defense: 2/5

Control: 3/5

Regen: 5/5

Difficulty: 2.5/5

Given their overall balanced stats, the Dancer is a really good class for both beginner and more experienced players, but in order to master the Dancer, you will need to play it for quite a bit.

A good healer is a major asset in any team, so if you are heavily focused on the healing part (regen) and less on the damage part, you are going to be one of the most valuable players on the team, able to keep the rest of your friends alive and well – while also having a good damage input.

I definitely suggest the Dancer as a starting class, because their way of fighting and their beautiful skills make for a really nice addition, as well as an easy class overall.


This is yet another class which is super beginner friendly, and extremely powerful in terms of damage. They also don’t lack in the defensive side, and the crowd control abilities they got make the Warmages a pretty powerful, yet still beginner friendly class.


Weapons: Lance, Blades

Role: Damage, Crowd Control

Attack: 4.5/5

Defense: 3/5

Control: 3.5/5

Regen: 0.5/5

Difficulty: 3/5

The Warmage players are extremely powerful and overall a force to be reckoned with. They have powerful crowd control abilities, which combined with their high damage, make for a strong class.

They are not difficult to handle, but not easy to master either. This class is a good addition to any kind of team and will synergize well with anything, especially with the Dancer if they provide some healing.

Since their defense isn’t that low, they can take a hit or two, but don’t rely on their tanking ability because it’s nowhere near close to the Fighter’s. I definitely suggest them as a starter class!

I have been playing games ever since I can remember. My passion for video games and especially pixel graphic games must have started back when I was little, because every time I try a new game with pixel graphics I immediately fall addicted to it! I started writing about mobile games in November 2018, focusing on creating in-depth guides for the most popular titles out there. Other than games, I am also passionate about design, and working on my very own pixel game in my free time.
