So I've finally gotten around to playing, and I'd prefer to play where there's people I know (or have at least seen on the forums anyways since Shira quit already). Problem is I can't figure out which server it is you all are playing. I had a cannon main on Macedon I messed around with for a while before realizing they're pretty much useless, and now wish to make a spear. Which server has the most ggftw people on it?

Cannon main is NOT useless. If anything they seem to be gaining popularity for whatever odd reason.

By worthless I mean "I read on the forums here and on their official forums that cannon as a main is underpowered and hasn't got any useful abilities I can't replicate with a merc". Cannon interested me due to being the "AoE attack" class, but it seems staff main is better for AoEing, and I believe you know my stance on "magic" classes, so that's out. It's either spear, sword (which I heard is also a bit lackluster) or gun. I was considering axe until I read about it. I'm still not sure how they manage to have so many underpowered classes.

Cannon's AoEs are actually a combination of DoT & debuffs. Staff AoEs are basically pure damage. A similar class to the cannon is the musician main, which has better AoE/DoT skills, but lacks stunning capabilities.

Spear Main: Decent in both PvP/PvE. It's all about Lightning Spear to drive your opponent's AP down. Works even better with a spearman merc and/or pirate.

Sword Main: Pretty average class. Doesn't really stand out in PvP or PvE other than having the ability to tank better than most classes. Does have a decent row AoE skill late in the game.

Gun Main: Similar to sword main in terms of being average. You can however run stun and spike builds fairly well.

Axe Main: Terrible. They used to be good in the past, but current metagame and content makes them near pointless to play.

Same can be said of all mains. All mains are nothing but slightly stronger versions of the D class mercs... yes, mains, all of em, suck, in comparison to the C and B class mercs you can get.

It boils down to this: PvP or PvE?

If PvP, go staff or geetar anhero... If PvE, go cannon, gun, geetar anhero or archer. Don't bother with Melee mains. The only melee main worth a damn is powersaw, which requires an existing lvl100 character on an account to even make... For all it's exclusivity it's not even that good.

The only main in existance that is not dwarfed by a merc is geetar anhero. All other mains basically are inferior to any merc counterpart at the end.

Read that and educate yourself a bit. Cannons are underpowered, but they're still a good choice for PvE. That thread is a bit dated but it can still help learn a little bit about cannon mains.

That's what I read which gave me the idea that they weren't really too worthwhile to play. I just don't want to pick a class which I have a niche with and will be forced into a specific method of play with later.

Just don't pick axe main, and it's all right

FYI cannonM + artillery (Deep Insight + Devastation shell) gives a massive 5k+ defense debuff. For non-cash shoppers, this makes PvE a lot easier.

Like Miyu said, each class is unique. I think you'll have enough time during the game to decide which formation suits your play-style best, as long as you ask a lot of questions.

Just make sure you put the correct balance of attack and support. Early on, a shaman and monk is enough. You'll have plenty of time to learn about prophet, princess, exo and other unique/versatile C-mercs and decide which ones are best for you.

You'll find every type of main chars in division 1 PvP.

Cannon and guitar remains as ABFL favorites.
They mainly run a full ranged build usually with a princess. I saw Geemarc put a hwarang at the front e_e

tbh cannons are becoming fotm in Titan atm :v
Best Titan melee classes are still Sword and Power Saw.

In early game, all mains are useful. In late game (110+), all mains are relegated do doing jack shit all while your mercs do the work. Unless you are a high damage main like archer, then you'll be left clickin like jesus.

I've said many times before, doesn't matter what you use... endgame is all about only a few skills: Warcry, toxic, seth, ridge (or forest prison), healing and maybe your lvl100 main skill.

Oh, and ITAM MAUL... lots of itam maul.
