Hello, I'm brand new to the game and was trying to do some research on the best class. I came up with either Bishop, Evan,NL or I/L mage and for F2P (which I haven't decided on yet) Im seeing I/L mage, bishop or evan.

Having said that I see there are 3 new classes also Shade, something and something else. I can't find much info on these 3. So any advice to start me in the right direction would be appreciated!

Thank you

    You must be looking at a very outdated guide, if it lists Shade as a "new class".

    There is no "best class." Jobs can go from op to weak **** and from weak **** to op with a single balance patch. Just play whatever looks fun

    Ark should still be available. He is third on the list when you open the Create Character menu at the character selection screen, in between Pathfinder and Illium.

    Highly recommend you to play as many classes as your character slots allow up till their 4th Job Advancement/or lvl.120/140. As this will benefit you in the long run in terms of Legion & Link Skills. There is no best class hence why the game is monitored and theres buffs/nerfs applied for balance.
