Greedfall Classes Guide

When playing Greedfall, the first decision you’ll make after creating your character is picking your class. There are 3 different classes in Greedfall; Warrior, Technical, Magic, and each has its own set of unique skills and attributes. As you progress further in the game, you’ll be able to spread your skills outwards into other class trees so you are no longer locked to one playstyle.

Greedfall Classes

There are three starting classes to choose from in Greedfall, each with its strengths and weaknesses that affect your early gameplay experience.

The following is a rundown of all the character classes in the game that will help you decide the one you should choose.

Warrior Class

Selecting the Warrior class is recommended if you like a more ‘close-up’ approach to the game’s combat system. Considering you’re an adept user with the sword and willing to only get better with the proficiency of a blade, you’ll have access to large, and heavy weapons that will help you absolutely tear through even the thickest of armor in the game.

Of course, while there are strengths, there too are weaknesses. Heavy weaponry, and the need to constantly close the distance between you and your enemies, will see you relying on your teammates more often than not in order to survive.

Warriors generally get a stat boost in Crafting and Vigor to set themselves apart which allows them to improve, repair weapons and armor as well as regenerate health much faster. Not to mention that Warriors can easily climb up to places that other classes might not be able to.

Technical Class

If you have a strategic approach, then this class is for you. The Technical class is all about having more control of the battlefield. You will be able to lay traps and apply status effects during combat.

Players with the Technical class use a balance of melee weapons and ranged attacks with GreedFall’s firearms. You might cause less damage directly, but you will be able to inflict more damage over time.

You will get access to traps, throwable vials, weapon coatings, and large-area-of-effect attacks. With a boost in Science and Lockpicking, you will have the ability to craft potions, craft ammo, and get into places that other classes might not have been able to get into.

  • One-Handed Blades
  • Set an Elemental Trap

Recommended Attributes

Magic Class

If magic has always fascinated you, then choose this class. The Magic class gives you the ability to cast spells from a distance. With magic, you can cut through armor and cause damage to the core health.

The drawback is that you will have to keep an eye on your mana bar which drains as you use the spells. You can replenish your mana bar with potions or wait for an automatic refill.

You also get healing power, better mobility, and the ability to control the crowd. You will also have some killer-area-of-effect attacks. With a bump in Science and Intuition your ammo-making, exploration and mapping, and dialogue skills will get better.

Starting Skills

  • Stasis
  • Divine Magic Ring
  • One-Handed Heavy Weapons

Recommended Attributes

  • Willpower
  • Mental Power

Recommended Talents

  • Science
  • Intuition

Every class has its own pros and cons. You must choose whether you want to cast spells from a distance, get up close in melee combat, or cause damage over time.

Classes in Greedfall have a good balance and if you know what you are doing, you can excel no matter which class you choose. It eventually comes down to the player’s play style. So, in the end, it is up to you to choose the class which best suits your abilities.
