There are 18 advanced classes in Lost Ark, split between five base classes: Assassin, Gunner, Mage, Martial Artist, and Warrior. The game doesn’t follow traditional MMORPG class rules, as all the classes are essentially DPS classes. Some concentrate a little more on support, while you can also choose between ranged or melee combat styles. But what are the best classes and weapons? Find out in our Lost Ark DPS tier list below.

Which class has the highest DPS in Lost Ark?

No matter which base class you choose in Lost Ark, you can find a top-ranked DPS advanced class within it. Many consider the Sorceress to have the highest DPS in Lost Ark, but this is at the expense of mobility in battle. Others choose the Death Blade, which has more mobility and is easier to play. The Berserker also does a huge amount of damage but is very slow, making him great for PvE but not so strong in PvP. Finally, if you would rather fight at a distance, the Gunslinger is considered to have the highest DPS for ranged classes.

SS Tier

These classes are beasts and true DPS machines! If you want to do the most consistent damage in the game, these are the classes to choose from.

  • Sorceress (Mage): Long Staff
  • Deathblade (Assassin): Sword
  • Berserker (Warrior): Greatsword
  • Gunslinger (Gunner): Gun

S Tier

While they don’t quite make the top tier, these Martial Artist advanced classes give you an agile hero that still does great damage.

  • Striker (Martial Artist): Gauntlets
  • Scrapper (Martial Artist): Heavy Gauntlets
  • Soul Fist (Martial Artist): Focus

A Tier

Here you’ll find the average DPS damage dealers. Nothing special, but if played well, they’ll give you solid output. Choose one of these if they suit your particular style.

  • Glavier (Martial Artist): Spear
  • Wardancer (Martial Artist): Gauntlets
  • Deadeye (Gunner): Gun
  • Shadow Hunter (Assassin): Shadow Blades
  • Gunlancer (Warrior): Gunlance
  • Artillerist (Gunner): Launcher
  • Sharpshooter (Gunner): Bow
  • Arkanist (Mage): Magick Deck
  • Destroyer (Warrior): Battle Hammer

C Tier

These classes are complex to play, as they’re very much support classes. They do a solid amount of DPS, but people want them in their groups for buffs and heals, not damage.

  • Paladin (Warrior): One-Handed Sword
  • Bard (Mage): Harp
