Hi, most played Duelist here.
You've really got nothing to lose going to Duelist. But in comparison to other Classes, Gunglingers/Duelist in general kind of suck.
Going Duelist, you gain a few useful skills, which would be...
3% Crit Rate Magazine
20% Crit Damage Magazine
20% TDD Magazine.
Sadly, only one of these can be used at a time /o/.
Your Misc skills allow you to get upgrades for your 3 most used skills.
As well as a 15% Skill Damage Misc Skill. Which is a BIG gain.
Some useless Gunslinger Skills though would be...
-The 5th skill. (Really, for 20 Skill Points, the effort/money it takes to get, and for the damage and usefulness this has. It's just such a waste of time, points, and money. It's only really good for maneuvering through a map. That's it.
-Destroy Hall. (Seriously, what the hell. This skill takes like 5 seconds to cast, and it launches the enemies away, if this was used to get a mob off of you, you would die in the obnoxiously long amount of time it takes to cast.
However, some skills are good.
-You may now put more points into your Regular skills, which in the end are almost all you use.
-Backstab Shot (Extremely useful in getting around/behind a mob, even more so than Mobile Defense, which I've already said, sucks cow nipples. The damage is naic too.)
-Punching Gun. (This skill is so obnoxiously retarded it makes me want to hurl myself out of my 2nd floor window onto the metal railing on my porch. However... if it crits, it stuns enemies, which is really useful when you need a few seconds to run away, the damage isn't bad, so you've got nothing to lose. It also doesn't take any BP to use, which I will get to next.
LOL YOUR BP.
HAVE FUN BEING THE MOST ANNOYING YELLOW GAUGED CLASS IN THE GAME.
LET ME HAVE FUN EXPLAINING THE SYSTEM TO YOU.
While most classes have you do certain things to build up your 3rd Gauge, You don't need to do ANYTHING for Duelist.
HAHA JUST JOKING.
YOU GET TO PAY 100K ELY FOR 99 BULLETS.
The cast time for loading your gun is annoying, since you'll most likely be getting prison raped by a mob of bloodlusting monsters. And by the time you've shoved those metal jackets into your gun to defend yourself, they will have already severed a few of your limbs, leaving your situation no better off than you were before loading your gun.
...However it's not so bad if you're just casually waiting in between some spawns.
Actually the cost isn't bad at all, it's the fact that you have to manually load in your BP. Which makes me just want to strangle things, since I already have to worry about OTHER buffs.
But honestly, in the end, you might as well just stick to Sitting/Shooting, Head Shot, Wide Range, Gatling, and Backstab shot. They're all you really need for some hardcore grinding, and you can utilize the skill points left for HELPFUL misc skills.
Have fun being the most stupid class in the game though.
