Slayer vs Warrior

I started playing Tera like 2 days ago, I did a bunch of reserches on the classes and I am undecided about choosing a slayer or a warrior. From the information I got the warrior is an hybrid, which gives you the opportunity to solo everything as you are a half tanker and also a damage dealer. Slayer is the second class as dps'er, but it's a bit slow compared to the warrior, and plus it's also a bit slow at evading. So here comes the question, considering I want a farming char, I will solo nearly 90% of the time and I would like to PvP also a bit with it, which class is the better one between warrion and slayer? I would like to hear your own experience and which are the pros and cons about this classes. :D

Slayer:
Hard burst damage
Aoe damage which doesent spread
Good aoe meele class
Best knockdown class
Good pve sustain (healing etc, with the right glyphs)
Takes lower pve/pvp dmg than the warrior

Warrior:
Worst aoe class existing
Just because hes a hybrid, he doesent do well in dps nor tank (tank is still viable for instances)
Rely HARD on crits from behind to at least tickle the enemy. You wont like face to face combat as you pretty much die that way
Takes the most dmg in pve/pvp (if you arent in def stance)

The only easier thing with the warrior was soloing bams. But that gets boring after the first two. Im more for pvp
The lvling and pvp part will be A LOT easier on the slayer, but its up to you what you find more fun

You never played war, did you, hai?
War can tank as good as any lancer but move a lot easier and faster + debuff boss for 16% deff which improves party damage, can use shadow clones to distract boss and much more. Dps is fine too. And if u take damage somehow - learn to use evasions and block lol XD

Slayer has more damage, but less surviving + his attack speed is low. Not only he has only one evasion with a cooldown, it doesn't cancel his skills as one of warr's, so slayers can get trapped and got hit.

Warri dps is a bit lower, that's true, but he's a lot more mobile, evasive and surviving. In fact it's the fastest and most mobile class in game with highest critrate, capable of escaping any damage. Also warr is hardest to master. Unless u play good u gona loose PvP and be not good in PvE. The most weakness of warriors is that they cant fight multiple targets as slayers do + no range attacks except backstab.

And finally good wari kills good slayer most the time.

PS Wari get buff with patch (can knockdown now and cut 50% healing of enemy) while Slayer get nerf mostly.

which of these 2 classes can dual-wield and are there any other classes that can dual wield, or are these/is this the only classes/class that can ?

Go for a slayer,they removed some serious glyphs from the warrior and slayers got boosted...
We (warriors) lost backstab reset glyph,another reset glyph for stunning and only got more chance to knock down with a skill...Meaning?No more imba stun from warriors(althought it was pure luck with cooldowns,now it just CANT happen).My chance with a slayer on 1vs1 was only if i got rr on cooldowns,now?pff
Wish i didnt get endgame gear for my warrior so i could reroll to a slayer for an alt,not because its easier,because slayers have the "means" to kill,now watch warriors poke ppl in bgs...

I tested both classes, Warrior until 19 and Slayer until 12. The slayer does double the damage that a warrior can do, but it's kinda slow compared to the warrior, let's say in like 5 sec the slayer can hit 4 times? Yeh, and the warrior can hit around 7 times in 5 sec. So the DPS is kinda the same imho, plus the warrior is an agile classe which gives you high possibility to don't get hit if you know how to play it. I am not thinking of tanking with the warrior ofc, I am more interested on how much he can hit, from what I tested so far for me the warrior can outplay the slayer in PvE and even in PvP. Any one who got a levl 60 slayer/warrior that could give their own opinion?

Go with berzerker, trust me..

You can't die in PvE.
1 shot people in PvP.
finish quests in seconds (gather all with mount, use cyclone for profit).
and your DPS is the highest of all melee if not in the game. (maybe sorc higher depends on boss)

As I see it:
Warrior- Fastest but low hits (100 tiny stabs)
Slayer- Balanced, medium speed, medium hits (some low, some high)
Berzerker- Slowest, very high hits.

DPS=damage per second,meaning big slow crits doesnt matter,actually the opposite cause you give a hard time on a tank since tera's aggro system is unique...If you gather up for example an archer's dps with a skilled warrior you might be suprised.On achm with my warrior i slap her ass ALL the time,taking a break only when i use a roll for the lazer plus providing imba def redection...If i have a warrior tanking as well,nvm imba edge stuck n imba dmg....
yeah zerks are hardcore porn with mystics,other than that i dont like their gameplay,slow with 3-4 skills.Always going 3 steps back and come with a charge,i might even sleep on my keyboard playing like this...I love warriors pve and pvp(even if we lost some serious "things" there).Imba dps/support class,tank easy n pretty useful for 3vs3...i tried bg after the patch and im still in love my warrior but not everyone can play one,actually some ppl find it difficult to play good even with gay classes like archers...

Yeh exactly! I think most of the players aren't able to play this game, thats why they say the warrior sucks, ofc, this class is a skillfull class. I still think that a good warrior can own in PvP. But tbh I don't know about their dps at higher levl, from the information that I acquired warriors can hit like 30% of slayers dmg.

I've been reading and reading and gathered a lot of information, but there is also some jerk that is raging or trolling that completly destroys the logic of each class.

Warriors are versatile, they are hard to play, but if you play them good you have a chance to win!
For this, you need a good computer to evade without problem and lagging issues.
We all know that Warriors can tank, have less DPS(but have some), they require a lot of skill.
They also have some pretty good stuns.

Slayers have very nice dmg(highest DPS), a lot of mobility like warriors, knockdowns and that stuff.


Reaching the very bottom of researching, this classes are both good, they both do dmg, both are welcomed.
When it comes to PvP and PvE during the entire game, lvl 1 to 60, PvP and PvE which is the most fun playing?

Who will have less trouble leveling and killing good players with equal gears and same levels?

1vs1 slayers are way better than warriors atm...Slayers might be slow but if they get 1 big crit you r done,even as a priest my worst problem is with slayers/zerks atm.Warriors are not ABLE to kill a healer solo from now on,before the patch they could if they got lucky with the resets,atm you can only do 50% dmg of someones HP(max dmg) and then you get kited like stupid waiting 28 secs for a backstab.
My point is that playing a slayer you can end up with a 10/0/20 score in a bg but with a warrior you will have to get used to get 3/0/35 since your job is to break healers' balls...

In conclusion both classes are awesome with kind of similar gameplay,yet have different jobs to do in the battle...

I played warri a bit after patch and found out that it's good XD

Yeah, they removed stun resets, and some ppl whine and reroll, but what they gave us? 2x knockdowns, lover cooldown, HP restoration debuff. The last one is most fun, even priest's cannot easily heal themselfs with it.

IMHO PvP is much more fun now and more options we have. Still i kill slayers 80% the time lol XD

same here...I dont have any problems with my warrior...if ur good at dodging and know when to charge, you can easly win, I have lost only once against a slayer, and that was in town since there is no unit collision, never happened again I killed all the slayers I fought with!!

Friday, February 8th 2013, 8:00am

ah, towns... ≧﹏≦

if truth be told, both classes are good , just find which you like better.

Warriors are definitly able to solo a healer. Also .. I've did some 1vs1 and I have to say that the duels vs. Slayer were easier than before the patch.

same here, your heavy crits are useless when enemy evade it and stun you. and healers with healing cut down by 50% stuned, knocked down are much easier then before. aspecially with adequate stun proc.

So finally seems like the stuffs on warrior saying he is a shit is totally fake, maybe some kid raging against that class. ;o

Lies,warriors are not able to kill a priest with the same gear,duel or even 1vs1 on bgs,they just keep them busy,especially after the patch with the kds.
Warriors and slayers ganging in bgs now,thats another story :P

Caotonic is way to used to have Victor set noobs in the oposing team with 14 seasoned VM +12 mates at his back lol

BG is a monkey capture farce as i see it.

Goodgeared priest is rly hard to kill for warri, that's true. But tell me what class is it not? With 40 PvP defence as a class bonus+100% selfheal it's rediculous, no? Tho it's 50% if u have a warri on you ;)
