Vanguards were the least popular class during Revelation Online's beta

Wanna know how many people got whooped in PvP during Revelation Online's three rounds of closed beta? A lot: more than 615,000 characters died in the game's PvP.

That's according to a new infographic My.com put out today. Other tidbits to note: Sulan is the most-visited city, almost half of Emerald Falls completers chose the panda reward, and as for classes, Swordmages and Occultists are the most popular, with Vanguards trailing in last place.

The game will soft launch into open beta on March 6 -- check out the infographic below!

Keep in mind these stats are from beta and many players such as myself will create one of each class to test them all out. So expect the real numbers to be very different when things go live.

I always pick tank as my first character, so... Good to know I'll apparently be needed? That said, the class split shown here looks pretty balanced overall, and don't group structures usually require fewer tanks anyways? I think most games are designed to be able to afford less tank and healer players since those roles aren't as popular as DPS.

Um...silly question. Can I roll a mushroom girl as pictured in the article's header for this game? o.O

"And you are not asking if you can roll a pink one, Uta?"

Well....that would be my next question, after I can confirm the first question! <3

Yeah I thought those were the characters they were talking about in the title and I was thinking "I'd love to play one!" If they existed as playable characters they may have tempted me to get the game despite the Open World PvP after level 40.

I believe PvP is entirely optional if you are on a PvE server. Least that's what I getting from blurbs about this game.

Afraid not, or else I'd totally be a little mushroomy tank. :< The only race is human although there are different body types, three per gender, I think. I will totally leave feedback or make a forum post during OBT requesting to make them playable in the future, though. More unique races, please!

That's actually a really good breakdown between classes, I'm impressed.

Though a tank class being the least popular choice? "I'm positively shocked at this news!", said nobody ever.

I only played the Vanguard up to lvl 20 something but it was a very soloable class and seemed like it could be played as valid dps class.

I played Vanguard and really enjoyed it. Looking forward to open beta.
