Lost Ark PvE Class Tier List

How the classes rank for PvE.

As with any MMO, the hardest decision to make is deciding which class to play. The same rings true for Lost Ark, where there are 15 different advanced classes to choose from. Though if you are having trouble picking your class, knowing where the classes rank amongst themselves may help to sway you towards one. Since a large amount of content in the game is PvE, here is our Lost Ark Class Tier List for PvE.

You may not think it matters much where your class ranks among the others, but it's actually quite important. You will eventually hit a point in the game where almost all of the PvE content is more group-based. It is helpful to know what classes are sought after for these encounters, as well as where your chosen class might fall on the list.

Here is our Class Tier List for PvE:

  • S Tier
    • Gunlancer
    • Paladin
    • Bard
    • Gunslinger
  • A Tier
    • Berserker
    • Artillerist
    • Sorceress
    • Wardancer
    • Sharpshooter
  • B Tier
    • Shadowhunter
    • Striker
    • Scrapper
    • Deathblade
  • C Tier
    • Deadeye
    • Soulfist

Due to the nature of PvE, this list favors classes that have high survivability, sustainable DPS, and support capabilities, rather than classes that can output the most damage and might excel in PvP. This is why classes such as Paladin and Bard sit at the top of this list, while complicated and squishy classes such as Deadeye sit near the bottom.

So there you have it, that is our Lost Ark Class Tier List for PvE. It should be known that all of the classes in Lost Ark are fantastic, and they can all hold their own when mastered. Some classes will just take a little bit more time and dedication in order to maximize their effectiveness.
