What melee classes would you suggest?


Recommended Posts

Hello all,

Which melee class(es) would you suggest for group play?

I recently started playing Crowfall and am somewhat confused on which melee class(es) to play in a group setting. I understand certain classes have different play styles an excel in different settings.

Thank you for any suggestions you have!!!

Personal suggestion.... try em all.

Also, don't get married to any of them just yet, because there are probably about half a dozen balance/power passes still to happen.

I used to love the Myrmidon when it was still archetypes a few months ago, then some of it's things got nerfed, or changed, and such, and now I'm not playing it anymore.

Champion: Super easy and strong bruiser.
Excels at jumping in on an enemy target and sticking on them with slows, high damage and self healing.
Tank: High
Damage: High
Control: High
Mobility: High
Support: Low

Myrmidon: Requires practice, but can be very tanky as well as high dmg.
Excels at controlling and picking out targets with a low cooldown 30m range net - absorbing damage with Berserk and avoiding that damage with several abilities. Can also apply severe AoE damage with spins.
Tank: High
Damage: High
Control: High
Mobility: Low
Support: Low

Templar: Mostly tanky/support, counters other melee classes pretty well, and zone control. (can be built for damage).
Excels at protecting your group from melee enemies, with parry (Right mouse button), while healing in an area around them (Divine light).
Tank: High
Damage: Medium
Control: Medium/High
Mobility: Low
Support: Medium

Assassin: Single target specialist (can be built several ways, dots, stealth harass, single target burst etc.)
Excels at harassing from stealth (Agent Provacateur discipline), flanking enemies, popping up behind the enemy group and attacking the backline or controlling targets with stuns.
Tank: Low
Damage: High
Control: High
Mobility: Medium
Support: Low

Knight: Very strong tank atm, fits really well with Standard Bearer, when/if you can get the support power minor discipline from the Spider Queen. Can avoid CC by blocking.
Excels at locking down targets with high amount of crowd control, you can: Shield stun, AoE Knockdown, Drain dodge pips with Shield bash, Slow on every 3rd basic attack, pull enemies back with chain pull.
Tank: High
Damage: High
Control: High
Mobility: Medium (if playing Elken/Centaur like most people do)
Support: Low


This is what I would rank them as atleast.

@Yumx

You left out Duelist! 

Hands down my favorite melee. A stealth melee class with some ranged abilities. Full ranged as an option if you so desire. Great CC, very offensive and a unique stealth mobility "Tunnel" for getting through fort and keep walls.

Following Yumx's format - well, sorta. ( formatting is different on phone)

Tank: Medium (ability to create a damage shield that reflects a % of incoming damage)

Damage: High

Control: High

Mobility: Medium+

Support: Low

Just to say it out loud - if you run in to the Crypt near your faction's beachhead you can easily change and swap between classes.  Just to assist with your experimentation :)

If every single melee class has low or medium mobility, which classes would be considered "high" mobility.

Champion, as Yumx indicates in his rankings.

Ah damn I missed that. The color coordination threw me off a bit since my brain kept wanting to see.

High

Medium 

Low

Thanks for point that out.

Yeah I guess that makes sense, since I want High to be a positive thing ?
