Slow? Pfft. That sure as heck doesn't stop them in PvP... Or at bosses... Well actually... They're not too good at bosses until later... Like... A lot later... But yay mechs!
I played at least every class once, but I did not build them up, so I can't help you that much unless it's on an explorer/warrior (no second class) or wizard (second class sorcerer)... Er... (yay for friends). So I got a small background on how each one really is, even though I sucked at juggling skills on a Guardian...And a Templ... Gunsli... Okay, yeah, I suck at juggling. Anyway, bladers are more fun than you think. They're great soloers and they're fast/high damage dealers. If there was a class that could be a Maplestory Hero in Latale, it would probably be the Blader. Flashy skill users also suffer because if the animation does not get completed, you do not attack. (Wizards know this problem all too well)
As for gunslingers, they have the weakest damage out of all the classes. However, their skills have the shortest cool down time and they are also the fastest. So even though they are weak, their DPM makes up for it. All you need to do is get a friend to be your meat shield at bosses or something and you'll be awesome. They're also deadly in PvP thanks to their speed and aerial moves/AoE moves.
In the end, all classes do about the same DPM. Rather, they all do around the same DPM. So it all depends if you like speed, power, survivability or a slightly milder combo of the two/three. In my opinion (and probably most others), the blader is good in all three of those. But like you said, they don't have that many moves and they aren't that flashy compared to other classes. A gunslinger is probably a fine choice if you like quick skills and even quicker movement... They're also easier to level up than a warrior (explorer > warrior in leveling, srsly)
And I rambled too much nonsense. Yay. TL;DR Bladers are good and so are gunslingers.
