Best Character Class

The character class you decide to play as in Black Desert Mobile will be the best for your personal playstyle and combat preferences. All the classes are balanced and there is no one class that is straight-up better than the others as they each excel in their own specific areas. where there's proficiency there's likely a certain amount of deficiency and each class harbors its own specialty. It won't be until you start taking part in the 3v3 PvP mode that balancing issues with the clases will arise.

We would recommend if you are new to the game and like close-combat to pick a melee character like the Giant or Valkyrie. If your prefer long ranged attacks choose the Ranger, or the Witch if DPS appeals to you.
