    So is B&S a typical eastern pvp mmo?

    When I was playing Tera and Archeage everyone was creaming their pants over this game. Is it that good? I browsed their site and their class descriptions didn't really do much for me. Can I play a razzle dazzle class (EQ Enchanter/Coercer/Bard, Rift Chloro/Domi for reference. ie I want to control the fight. Facemelters get rekt.)?

    What's the endgame focus? I'm not eager to jump into another eastern game where your life is praying to RNGesus. I don't mind grinding at all, but what's the end game focus?
    Killing is my business.... and business is good.

    As far as endgame goes, pvp is a big part. However, if you're not into that they have 24-man raids and various other endgame instances and grinding to do.

    However initial endgame right now, is openworld pvp, arenas, they have 4 hardmode dungeons ontop of dailies. They'll be releasing Mushin tower shortly after, they have a a few open world raid bosses, a 24-man raid inc. down the line. All the content is there and translated if I recall. However they're releasing more and more in increments to keep giving us more things to do. They have another class being released shortly after launch the Warlock. There's actually an even newer class being released sometime soon in KR too. All-in-all, A LOT to do. The game has been out for over 3 years now or 4+?

    As far as what type of class you want, their type of combat is a bit unique. A lot of classes have the potential to control fights, pvp is a lot like a real fighting game. A lot of footsies, baiting them out, forcing mistakes and punishing with combos. But you might really like Warlock once they're out, Force masters are mage-like but have some really nice cc's, Summoners are PvE kings atm. Blademasters and Kung Fu Masters are very hard classes, and very reactive. They're based on quick reactions, and can punish hard with the right timing. Blade Dancers and Assassins are extremely fun to play. Blade Dancers are a fast paced class, lots of aoe, some great stuns, and just also very fast. Assassins are all about mindgames, and timing. They have a lot of abilities to help confuse enemies and just mess with them. Not only that but their animations are amazing.

    Here's a link containing a more indepth analysis of every class.

    Grabbed a key from the curse client, definitely checking this out this weekend. I really like the look of the combat and I'm a sucker for interesting movement/travel systems
