Knight > Elf
Monarch or Prince may appear to have average ability stats compared to the other classes, however the true value of Monarch shines in big battles and the bigger the battle is the brighter the shine is, he can enhance the ability of an entire group in large battles ranging from a party group and up and his skills are composed of spells effective in assessing and commanding the battlefield.
Knight is a class with a high level of stamina and physical defense. Naturally, Knights would guard a position or play the role of a tank when making an advance during a large battle, his powerful close combat skill stuns his enemies and keeps them helpless against death. The right composition of his abilities and spells enables Knight class to withstand the attacks from Elves and overpower them. However low resistance against magic keeps Knights vulnerable against Mages and their success in battle is highly dependent on the equipment and the potion.
Despite her low level of stamina and defense, Elf manages to check and balance other classes based on her long-range attack advantage. With the right selection of attributes, her close range attack ability or role as a supporter can be enhanced, 6 different levels of magic are also at her disposal, thanks to earth, wind, water and fire, the four elemental magic. In massive battle, Elf increases the spell accuracy of friendly mages and at the same time blocks the spell of enemy mages and attacks from the range to keep them in check.
Mage or Magician renders the heaviest firepower and brings a demise to the enemy with her critical attack, wide area magic makes her wide area hunting easy, her “Turn Undead Spell” enables mages to destroy undeads instantly. In massive battles, she neutralizes the enemy attack with debuff skills and heals the friendly as a supportive unit, she has an advantage over Knights with low level of magic defense, but is vulnerable against Elves attacking from a far.
