For the most part I find Kakao has done a good Job reducing the imbalance of classes and reducing the gap between an OP class and a weaker one. Granted there are still a couple outliers, but all in all it's pretty good. (Whether the combat is fun in this argument will be irrelevant, because that's very subjective.) Before we get into the reasons why Witch/Wizard is OP, i would like to state this is from a perspective of the overall state of wit/wiz vs other classes and not just in one aspect of the game. Namely, the fact that they suck at 1v1. Better than they used to be, but still bottom tier. Top Reasons why they are so OP. 1. Protect Area This ability coupled with healing are what make the wit/wiz so coveted in siege/nw. One easily executed ability should not be able to change the tide of battle. Pearl Abyss. , Protect Area. PA, PA hmmm, coincidence? Tin Foil hats aside, this ability needs to be removed. It has been a thorn in the side of the Siege/NW scene for ages and we have asked multiple times for reworks, but unfortunately P.A. refuse to listen. 2. Multiple Healing Abilities and MP recovery The only class with 3 heals, and MP recovery abilities. Valk is the only other class with a healing ability and sadly it sucks. Wit/Wiz have so much utility, more so than Mystic. The wit/wiz in BDO is a combination of a Mage/Priest/Paladin. In any other MMO these game changing abilities would be separated. 3. Range AOE damage Wit/wiz have great damage and large AOE abilities, larger than ranger/dk. Granted 2 abilities have reduced AoE damage and only 1 that was a major nerf, as the blizzard nerf was warranted. The rest of the damage is still very strong. 4. Protected abilities Most of the abilities are protected, unlike other classes who have very minimal FG's and SA, this is due to the lack of movement abilities. The one thing a lot of people do not realize is the strength of protected abilities in this current meta of NW/Siege. While everyone else has glaring gaps in their abilities, wit/wiz can stand and trade better than the other classes. This does have a down side as it affects 1v1 potential. Wit/wiz have a phenomenal presence in all aspects of the game. Whether it be PVE, small scale combat or siege. They have so much utility , with the combination of heals/Pa and Damage, they end up being the most wanted class. They are in high demand by siege and node war guilds. Usually siege guilds and good nw guilds will take a wit/wiz over a geared musa/ninja/maehwa/ranger any day of the week. Your PvE, is good - great depending on where your grinding, your doing better than most other classes in terms of grind efficiency and still a top 5 grind class.
