Black Desert Online is one of the biggest MMORPGs (massively multiplayer online role-playing games) in the world, and during 2019's The Game Awards, its mobile version, Black Desert Mobile, finally made its way stateside for fans to check out. Black Desert Mobile aims to give players the true MMORPG experience on their phone, with many of the same characters, a similar look, and a general familiar setting staying true to the Black Desert Online franchise.

Since its launch, Black Desert Mobile quickly became one of the most popular Android games, but many fans still haven't experienced the game just yet. So, in case you're one of those who are new to the series or looking to jump back in after some time away, here's how the classes of Black Desert Mobile stack up.

Black Desert Mobile: All classes

Black Desert Mobile: Best class in 2022 (2)

Black Desert Mobile has 13 base classes in its global version, with most classes in the game having the ability to transform into either an Ascended or Awakened version of their class, which gives players a total of 34 potential classes available in one of the best Android games.

Here's how the classes break down, with each potential version listed next to the base class. There may be other classes available in the Korean version of the game, but we're sticking with every class available to all players for this list.

StrikerStrikers might be the best overall class to use right now in Black Desert Mobile. Not only are they fast and great for PvE, but they're relatively easy to learn, giving you a good chance at figuring out other game mechanics while you play.
MusaMusa classes have high damage in PvE and can handle themselves in pretty much every aspect of the game.
WarriorWarriors are similar to Strikers in that they are adept at pretty much everything and can survive in the game's PvE and PvP modes with relative ease.

Black Desert Mobile: A Rank Classes

ValkyrieValkyries offer some high burst damage and are a very durable class for newcomers and veterans alike. They may be weak to some other classes — namely Ranged users — but they're still very dependable.
MaehwaMaehwa is a class that is extremely gear-reliant, but can reward players heavily if kitted outright. The versatility of Maehwas is also loved amongst fans, as is their ability to quickly get up close to enemies.

Black Desert Mobile: B Rank classes

WitchWitches have some of the best PvE abilities in the game, but can become a bit of a liability for PvP or Guild v. Guild gameplay. On top of that, you'll need to be a bit more of a skilled player to really get the most out of the Witch class.
TamerTamers are extremely agile both in combat and while traveling around the game, but are very fragile when it comes to combat, especially in PvP game modes.
Dark KnightThe Dark Knight class, is solid in all aspects of combat, but doesn't truly excel in any of them. While initially a higher tier, the Dark Knight has been nerfed since its inception into the game, dropping it below some other current popular classes.

Black Desert Mobile: C Rank classes

Swipe to scroll horizontally

SorceressAs their name suggests, Sorceresses have high damage when using magic abilities. As a result, they're extremely good at helping to clear out areas in PvE, but not so great in other game modes, where they fall victim to more melee-focused classes.
RangerLike Sorceress, the Ranger is excellent at ranged damage, but can get overpowered pretty quickly by other classes that feature more robust and versatile playstyles.
GiantGiants boast some of the best in damage and CC in the game and even have some great mobility for a character designed as a behemoth. However, their AoE damage isn't too spectacular, and their lack of healing abilities makes them way too reliant on other classes to justify playing in a solo capacity.

Which class will you play?

Whether you're looking to play more of a PvE build or something that can jump in against other players and take them down, Black Desert Mobile has a ton of choices for you. Of course, the three top — the Striker, Musa, and Warrior — are all incredibly good for those just starting out in the game, or even for high-tier players looking to maximize their play.

Of course, if you're looking to try out some other choices, then the "A" rank classes in Valkyrie and Maehwa offer some smart choices if you're okay with grinding gameplay for gear in order to make yourself stronger. Elsewhere, there are some "B" and "C" rank classes available that are fun to play with but might not be the most viable when it comes to making yourself one of the best players in the game.

Regardless of how you play, though, Black Desert Mobile will have something for you, and with a fairly deep class system that rewards grinding and coming back, you'll want to try out as many as you can.
