    Going to play glad on innova myself. This is my personal view on Glads.

    1: OPEN field, dead meat. Chokepoints/dungeons 5/10 (from watching vids, i have not played classic 40+)
    2: 8/10 (not the best but scary)
    3: 3/10 (Expensive AoE, No MP for skillspam in long run, Autohit melee farm is the basic)
    4: 2/10 (i expect 99/100 CPs to be range at start)
    5: 2hander 1-40(powerstrike max damage, cheap SS, can take 2handed blunt for stun or keep a 1hand stun in backup), duals 40+
    6: Blessed Soulshots will probably add alot more burst to skillspam dmg.

    Fagercraft has hit the nail on the head, though I think it's likely there will be more people playing melee than expected now that we're launching with 1.5. While still disadvantaged, melees do close the pvp gap as the levels increase (and don't die in 2 nukes before reaching their target), so I'd say finding a CP would be more like 4-5/10.

    Just remember l2 is a marathon, not a sprint. Sure you'll struggle in mass pvp at early levels, but you'll enjoy small scale pvp just as much.

    I played duelist for many many years however I will most likely be jumping ship to warlord.

    Mass pvp = very poor performance they have a short distance skill which will still required them to run to the forefront of any confrontation resulting in a nuker quick kill due to their poor m def.

    Solo pvp or small pvps very useful as long as you reserve mp while hunting in case of being ganked. Gladi is pretty much useless without mana.

    Gladi is an efficient farmer class, for 1 v 1 pve and has stable high damage output heavy armour allows it to tank a good deal of attacks

    2 handers pre 40 or a good quality sword/blunt D duals are a waste and will slow you down. Over hit every mob you can to speed up your exping.


    Gladi has been buffed quite a lot, it now has a defensive buff which it never got until very high levels other than lion heart. It is effectively a 1min buff with chance to dodge physical skills. Sonic blaster has a decent stun effect. Gladi will be imo an underdog class that when played well can be very good but only in very specific circumstances

    Apart from the hidden buff through addition of bss, i dont think gladi will get any buffs skill-wise anytime soon. On the other hand imo daggers, tyrants and destros are simply first in line for the buff train. I'd put my money on elf/de daggers recieving blinding blow and shadow step as compensation for lacking dash. Destro needs a gap closer or some kind of ranged skill ASAP. Tyrants havent recieved any long range wtf-stun skill yet, unlike gladi.

    They are implementing or implemented a blessed soul shot, which increases the damage a bit more than the regular soulshots.

    It isn't in game right now for us, I don't know if it comes out during the TOI update or saviors
