While Lost Ark is an MMORPG, it's also great to play alone. But which class is best when traveling solo? We will tell you.

Which class is best for solo players? Basically, each class in Lost Ark works completely on its own in the leveling process. So you are not forced to choose a specific class.

We come to the conclusion that the best classes for solo players are the warrior classes, i.e. berserker, paladin, and pistollance.

However, the Berserker still stands out:

  • He has a large pool of health and defense
  • It is very easy to play
  • He has good AoE damage
  • Mobility is okay
  • He is a strong endgame DPS class thanks to the good damage and debuff from Red Dust

However, the Berserker has a large damage advantage over the Paladin, which makes leveling up a bit faster. Paladins end up in the S tier primarily because their support is so important. While the Pistol Lancer is very strong, it is much more difficult to play.

The berserker in the leveling process

What the berserker can do: The berserker carries a greatsword, which he uses to hit enemies on the head. All of his abilities deal AoE damage while some attacks require you to place enemies directly in front of you.

For his special class mechanic, you gather anger to then activate the berserker mode. It increases stats like damage, speed, and critical hit chance for a short time. If the ability has expired, you must collect anger again by killing enemies.

What is the most effective way to play the Berserker at the beginning? As a Berserker, you must learn to pull your enemies together and place them in front of you. After that, you can defeat them all in one go with powerful sword blows.

The shoulder charge ability, which makes you mobile at the beginning, is helpful here. You initially defeat your enemies with Finishing Slash and Hurricane. You have to keep the latter pressed and you can also move while doing so. From level 14 comes the blow of the storms.

In the equipment, you rely on crit and specialization to get the maximum damage out of the berserker.

How should I allocate my first skill points? When distributing the points during the level phase, it is important that you never have to bring the skill levels higher than level 10. That only gets interesting when it comes to the endgame.

Skill level 4 is required for the first tripod, skill level 7 for the second, and skill level 10 for the third. However, the number of skill points required varies. For level 1 you need 4, for level 2 you need 20, and for level 3 even 48 skill points.

  • Level 12 - Invest the first 4 points in Shoulder Charge. There you skill Great Agility for more range. Invest another 4 points in Final Slash to activate persistence there.
  • Up to level 20 – Invest more points in Finisher Strike and select the Weak Point Detection and Confirm Kill bonuses.
  • Up to level 25 – Invest the first 20 points in Storm Strike. There you choose Rapid Preparation and Reinforced Strike.
  • Up to level 31 – Invest the remaining points in Strike of Storms for the Driving Strike bonus and allocate 4 points in Cyclone to the upkeep buff.
  • Up to level 35 – Get the second bonus from Hurricane and skill Broken Blade there. Also, invest 4 points in Dive Slash and select Great Agility for more range.
  • Up to level 41 – Distributes 20 points in Hellblade into the jump and melt bonuses. Spice up an additional 20 points in Red Staff into the Swift Preparation and Nerve Slash bonuses.
  • Up to level 44 - Get the last bonus at Hellblade. There you select Erdsalto.
  • Up to level 48 - Get the last bonus from Red Dust. There you select Red Wave.
  • Up to level 50 – Puts 20 points in Smash Wave into the Swift Preparation and Calberoth bonuses.

The berserker in the endgame

What is the role of the berserker in the endgame? The Berserker is one of the classes with the strongest DPS in dungeons and also has a useful buff for the group.

Via the Red Dust ability, you add a debuff that increases the enemy's damage from all sources by 12%. However, the buff needs to be placed well to allow for a strong burst phase for the entire group.

In PvP, on the other hand, the Berserker is easy to play and also really strong in low-rank PvP. However, its abilities are somewhat slow and predictable. This makes him weaker in high-rank PvP. But if you just play PvP for fun, you shouldn't have any problems with the Berserker.
