Following on from another thread I wrote about the desirability of Disciples of War for parties, I'd like to ask:
How are the classes balanced at the moment, particularly for competitive, cutting-edge group play?
What I mean is, what classes are the most in-demand of their types, in order to make a balanced, effective party that can clear the hardest content in the game? What classes seem to find themselves waiting hours and hours for parties because everyone plays them, or because they're underpowered compared to other classes that compete for the same 'slot' in a party?
It would be nice if people could make this information known here so that there's a clear thread for newcomers who know they want to create a desirable, competitive class.
Obviously people should play what they consider to be 'fun', but sometimes it isn't fair when someone spends days or weeks leveling a class only to find the developers haven't balanced it very well and parties ignore it or pass it up in favour of a different class that performs the same role more effectively or powerfully.
I'm hoping this thread can save a player who wants to make a competitive class a lot of time.
