Sup all. I know there already have been a lot of threads about it, but I still can't decide which class is better for PvP and Mass PK, also for NW: Archer or Wizard.
So far I've seen lots of discussions bout em both, some say wiz rocks, other say archer is superior.
What I seek is the best damage dealer possible versus other players. Wizards got undine strike or whatever that skill is called, also if they get their channeling lower than 50% of normal value, they get extremely dangerous are really hard to defeat, especially if they get def/atk levels on their gears. But they can be killed quickly if assassins or high atk level barbs get close to them.
Archers got higher melee survivability but lower mage resistance. Also, some archers got really high atk level, but they are dependent on aps ether way. The faster they shoot, the more efficient they are.
The problem is that getting ether archer to high aps and atk or wizard to low channeling and high def/atk takes a lot of time and ec, and the whole point of this topic is to find out which should I invest on and train in the end.
So what you think guys?

Wiz. Sure a archer can hit high, but a wiz can hit higher. :tiger-44:

Hard to say kinda depends who stuns first and stays stunned i'm full R8 and with full buffs and the 5 attack and 5 def level blessing from the faction npc I got 87 attack levels at 1.05 aps but there have been times when i get stunned and a wizard dropped me like i said it's all about who uses gets stunned then uses faith then the iron guard stuff whoever is left without them or has them on cool down wins i guess my opinion though.

I know both classes are extremely dd'ing and awsome, I know few aps atk archers and few insta channel atk wizards. But hell, I can't even get triple int on wrist for sin even for 300k ec, so ether aps archer or insta cast wiz would both be extremely expensive, right?

Wrong there, at least stats wise, i got both classes with full r8 and end game ornaments and they both had around the same pdef.

Wizards use AA, Archers use LA. LA itself has more psy defense. Im not talking bout custom stuff, I mean average defense.

The armor doesnt really matter when Stone Barrier can easily buff a wiz's pdef to 16-18k (depending on the pdef add-ons in the armor) with full r8, cube neck, ws belt, 2 mag rings and ascended dominance cape. The only reason eas got better survivability when it comes to phys damage is because of the damage reduction from Wingrise, leaps, higher base HP from the armor, faster speed maybe? Anyways, to answer your initial question, it entirely depends on what kind of pk you will do, if you're going to solo then go ahead and make an archer, wizard will most likely require you to have a team supporting you, unless you have -6/9 ct in every r8 piece, or if you will just spam spark on everything moving thing; as for costs, getting interval on top and double interval on wrists is quite cheap, interval on boots are much harder though, as for mage you can easily get 1 ct add-on in every piece except wrists (as hard as getting interval on ea boots), 2 ct add-ons will be more expensive. I'd say go for ea unless you cant stand getting one shot by some magic classes from time to time

On Topic: Honestly, both of them are good in their own ways, but having played both of them I had more fun on an archer than a wizzy. In my mind they had more survivability, then again wizzies have so many skills my brain frazzles... It is really hard to balance defense with good chan on a wiz, because once you get chan you are stuck with the other stats unless you want to spend 294809238423 ec getting the perfect gear... Archers are easier to gear and in my mind, easier to learn. But wizzies CAN do more damage than an archer... Up to you really. I would suggest working on both and just trying them out...  :-X
