I think it's about time I post my version of "Fave Players of a Class"
I'll make a list mixing from the old days and will try to put some of the people playing recently, but it's hard since im not that active.
I actually know a lot of people whom I find that are good in their jobs.
But I will simply write down the 2 names for each job, one as my all-time favorite, and one for an honorable mention.
In order to strictly cater the word "fave or favorite" because you can't have 10 favorite foods right? LMAO
Lordknight: Mar (Pineapple Express) It has become very clear to me that this dude right here is the ideal LK. Can deal a lot of damage and can tank very, very very well. Even in recent woes, he's one of the people who charges in on a stack first but is one of those who'll die last. There are LK's who can tank, there are also those that can deal tons of damage, but this guy right here has both!
Honorable Mention: Goes to ma boi Janley (Rin), Truly an LK with a good balance of strength and tankiness. The best feature of him is his personality to experiment stuffs with me during the old days. This guy doesn't know how to quit. Spent lots of hours just theory-crafting and making unconventional or appropriate solutions for different scenarios.
Sniper: Lunabell, the only sniper who can break the Emperium more than others during 2.0 WoE. My logic is that, any sniper can break. It's just, a matter of how fast can you do it? She uses a weapon that I'm certain 98% of you guys don't use for breaking as a "secondary" option ( but since i mentioned it ), perhaps you can research this now. Endures a lot of temptations but chooses to spam arrow shower with dark priest cards instead, especially when the card wasn't nerfed before. Definitely the Queen of all Snipers.
Honorable Mention: Ganon (Borrum) I mean. Seriously. This dude. LMAO. I have to admit that every WoE especially 2.0. This guy knows how to make you lose your marbles. He is very consistent with his play and is very annoying. Will spam the heck out of you till you run off and hide out of his vision.
Professor: Mond (Darchrow), it's sad to say that he's one of the Profs I know that has been on the supporting side of the job since I know him, even back then on Inertia. Plays as a DPS in BG to let the steam out because, well yea, It gets really sad sometimes to just support on a job that has the capability to kill. Definitely knows his S***, perhaps the reason to this is because he's the guild leader and of course doesn't want to die that much when he could use Ecall or Restore lol.
Honorable Mention: Rozzy (Aeryn Winter), Another person who has held the end of the stick for the sake of the team. A very tenacious support prof that does everything for the sake of assisting especially in team fights also has the capability to play DPS and go toe-to-toe with the other great profs. I find it odd that the profs I put here are mostly known for supporting. When people talk about profs, all they think is "kill, kill and kill" Lots of people neglect and throw away the value of these supporting skills that they have, therefore in my definition, "makes a really bad prof" then it means I'm bad as well.
Special Honorable Mention: When I said I'll be putting only one honorable mention, I'd like to insert another Prof due to other reasons. Hiyo, you guys know this person for sure. A very capable prof that has made BG fun for me at least. Always good to see another really good Prof to bring good competition. I can't elaborate more when it comes to WoE because for me, WoE is like, it hurts my eyes so I cant really focus lol.
High Priest: Rozzy (Aimee Leila) Not gonna exaggerate but lots of people know that she is probably the best High Priest around. Has a good balance of tankiness and knowledge in supporting. Performed lots of saves in the tightest spots during WoE and BG. Having her in your team in BG can make a huge difference. Most HP's i see these days are all about "tanking" HP is same like a Prof, If you only focus on one side of the job, then my good sir/maam, you're not a good HP.
Honorable Mention: Xenri, a new guy in the server. I can smell good potential from him but right now is a bit, inhibited due to the lack of gears because well, he's new. Always a good sport. Takes my sacri's well (tough love, son) I know for sure that in a few months of experience he'll become a really decent High Priest.
Creator: Rozzy (Lady Scarlett) There's a ton of reasons why I put rozzy again. I'm not bias. It is obvious. You're not gonna be in my list if you're just an F1 or F1 + F2 Warrior. Yet again, focuses on the DPS and support side of the job. Knows when to AD and knows when to switch back to PP even though sometimes she is assigned to do just AD. If you're assigned to do one thing, that's it, but if you're gonna go all out and do more than just to become an F1 Warrior, simply shows how creative and dedicated you are when using your job. That, by far is what it means to truly maximize the true potential of the job.
Honorable Mention: Jai (Sweet Sugar Daddy) She started as a PP creo on our guild. There were tons of time when we told her to switch to become an AD creo and been advised to change job if she wanted but insisted on staying with PP. Aside from the fact that she did admit that she's not good as DPS, she also mentioned that she enjoys watching her Pallies HP going back and up LOL. The only person who has used creo but used 98% of the time for PP and 2% on AD ( 1 woe ) on her whole life in the server on the job.
Paladin: Ter (Super Peco Rider) In every guild, or in every group we have in RO. There's always that one guy who uses Pally but definitely dies for you no matter what happens. You have yours, and I have mine, and It's Ter. A guy that endured a lot of damage just for the sake of the guild. Usually in our guild during woe, we usually advise our pallies to resist the temptation of using Sacrifice. There are obvious times when used sacri and he'll always deny it. LOL
Honorable Mention: To be updated
Whitesmith: Soov (Grandpa) I only saw a few WS in the game. But I definitely can't forget this guy. Deals tons of damage and can tank really really good. The only whitesmith so far that has pushed me to up my game on Paladin. I had to make a "FULL" melee reflect set just for him so he'll stop attacking me. Thank god it worked. If i didn't, I would have become a tenderized chicken meat like road kill.
Honorable Mention: To be updated
Star Gladiator: Sherwin (Sato) SERIOUSLY. This dude is the only Star Glad that has made a HUGE impact. Showcased the potentials of the job and deals A LOT of damage. Has really good resists and knows how to annoy you by bullying you. Made me up my game despite limited on mage classes because If I didn't, I'll be fresh meat all day everyday.
Honorable Mention: No need, he the only one. LOL
Soul Linker: Saku, isn't it obvious? I know for a fact that despite having a vast knowledge in RO, he chose to be a troll and prefers to annoy and kill all mages everywhere. I believe that he didn't chose the job. The job, chose him. I remember those days when I BG and have him as an opponent. All I can say is Jeebuz Christ. As a prof, I can accurately hit targets without having errors bolting him BUT, he knows how to meddle with your aim by going back and forth on his allies, giving me a chance to mistakenly hit him, which of course, results to my painful death. :(
Honorable Mention: Bryan (Buckets), a really good supportive Linker. It is his willingness to use any job to help the guild which made him to be placed on my honorable mention. This dude uses other classes as well, but he'll always be like, "if you want, I can go back to linker" truly a team player!
Assassin Cross: Gon (Giannis Antetokounmpo) I have to be really straight with this one. As a sinx breaker, most will become like a sheet of paper once they start hitting the Emperium. But not this guy. This man is really good for this job and I would always choose him over a different assassin cross breaker. Though, there are also good breakers out there. I chose him, because for me, he is the best among the rest.
Honorable Mention: Aburame, out of the few Assassin Crosses that I have faced in PVP he was the only guy who really made me up my game using Paladin ( I rarely do, like a holiday) I've been playing Paladin before in PVP just to kill time and been doing reflects full time. I have to admit I may have killed him more than he killed me but, he never fails to raise the adrenaline in me due to his tactics LOL. On a side note, I may die easily in BG as a paladin even if I'm using reflect against a Sinx especially when sometimes I use Devotion, but trust me, in PvP 1v1? It's different when I see it coming, by simply using BoS. :) Good times man, good times indeed.
High Wizard: Ray's Wiz. A wiz that has consistently improved back then when he just got here and is now considered one of elites of the said job. As a fellow mage, I'd say that kiting is key especially for wizards. In estimation, only 4 out of 10 high wizzies has this basic but very important trick to have. This guy has got awesome kiting skills, timing and the usage of fire pillars. Anyone can use the same set of skills, but possessing skills that are outside the box can truly make a player different from the rest.
Honorable Mention: Kratos, I mean, who doesn't love this guy. Has a really good sense of humor. Plays well and has a good sense of responsibility but I guess only until he decides to troll and go yolo instead. A good team player, as he will always follow commands even if it means becoming fresh bait for the enemies during woe. Truly a good sport as he doesn't care if he dies all the time.
I'll update the list soon for the other jobs that I haven't posted yet. :)
P/S: I didn't proofread this, so if there are some typos. pardon hihi
