The Daily Grind: Which MMO class makes you feel overpowered?

    
23

Obviously, we here at MOP love anything overpowered — including frappes, meme wars, and MMORPG classes. Sometimes it doesn’t even take numerically superior stats to take a class from wimpy to whompy. Sometimes it’s all about animations, sound effects, and cool abilities that can make you feel overpowered.

Right now in World of Warcraft, I have that feeling with my Balance Druid. Slamming around foes with a typhoon, beaming pure sunlight and moonlight into their souls, and then slinging a super-powerful shot right into their tummies gives me a warm glow. And I always felt super-overpowered whenever I trotted out my Robotic Mastermind in City of Heroes. Transformers, attack!

Which MMO class gives you that feeling of being overpowered — whether or not it has any statistical basis in reality?

Every morning, the Massively Overpowered writers team up with mascot Mo to ask MMORPG players pointed questions about the massively multiplayer online roleplaying genre. Grab a mug of your preferred beverage and take a stab at answering the question posed in today’s Daily Grind!

Healers. Because I am basiclly God and if you disobey me you will be punished by not being ressed after I let you die. For, I am, a petty God.

Balance Druid in WoW and Lahn in BDO. Both classes were lots of fun and allowed me to get into content that I enjoy much easier than other classes. Maybe I just really clicked with them, or maybe they’re super easy. Doesn’t matter to me! When I tour back through WoW again, I look forward to playing the Balance Druid.

My fully loaded Blaster is my first choice followed by my Dark/Emp Defender and Stone/Axe Tank in CoX.

I felt pretty much unkillable by anything other than psionic attacks as my Ice/Dark tanker in CoH.

Cleric in Aion. Thing is a beast: it can easily be a tank and healer.

Blood DK in WoW. Maybe not the greatest DPS, but jeez can that guy stand up against bosses and hoards of mobs. Have played that as my first character through an expansion character ever since WoD.

Sadly, I won’t be taking him into Shadowlands as I just don’t find the whole ‘throw everything away and start over’ mechanics to be compelling. I did not like it in Legion, I hated it in BfA. Not going down that road again.

Any healing cleric/healing paladin type of class. Amazing heals of all types, a bit of damage, heavy armor. I mean what’s not to love? Unkillable healing machine who can also dish out (and is expected to dish out ) some damage along the way? Sign me up!

I’ve felt way overpowered, MASSIVELY overpowered you could say, on Machinist in Final Fantasy XIV since their Shadowbringers overhaul. Bio blaster? Drill? Air Anchor? AUTOMATON QUEEN?! Yes please. :)
