New To Game - Good Class for Ranged?
I'm new to this game and have just started playing. In other games that look simaler to this such as Torchlight 2 and Path of Exile, I have played as a ranged class and have pretty much never used any melee type attack with those classes.

What would be a good class for primarly ranged attacks in this game?

I was thinking about choosing Dryad but the wiki said that the class is suited for advanced and veteran players. I have played many of these types of games before but this being the first time playing this game, I didn't know if this was a good class to pick for the first time.

Is Dryad still a good first class for ranged attacks to pick or should I choose a different class?

Also how does the difficulty compare betwen bronze and silver? I was planning on choosing silver but I want to make sure this isn't like super hard or something and that I'm making a good choise choosing silver for my first playthrough.

Can anyone help me by answering these questions?

Dryad hands down. Dryad is pretty much really the only "ranged" class there is.

Use a blowgun at all possible times, as a bow fires far to slow to be any real use. And several of her Combat Arts wont work properly without a blowgun.

Well now that was a very quick response. I guess I'll go with Dryad. Thanks for the response!

Any answer to my question about choosing bronze or silver?

Silver. Bronze is way too easy.

I added some more. ^_^

As for Bronze V. Silver. There is really no point in bronze other then to learn the game. The exp gains, quest rewards, and loot pail compaired to Silver, and seeing as you have to play through Silver to unlock gold, I would go Silver without question.

Thanks for the responses. My questions have been completely answered!

And Lord Fatso, I just read what your added and I'll keep it in mind when playing. I usually use a bow when playing Torchlight 2 and Path of Exile but I'll defently check out the blowgun and I'll probably end up using it like you said.

bronze: very easy
silver: easy
gold: normal
platinum: hard ( this is about the time you know if your build is good, and when the game fully starts imo )
Niobium: very hard

i start all characters on sacred 1 and 2 on silver, bronze is a joke really, and mobs get out leveled too fast.

dryad can be a purely ranged class, you could possibly do it to others but the best basic archer would be a dryad, she can also do other things too.

my games are also very tweaked for increased difficulty too and better icon settings/other tweaks like camera, tons of custom edits in s2, and for sacred 1 i use vet mod ( makes the game fully acts like there is 16 players in the game, so everything scales to simulate it )

also, welcome to the sacred community! be sure to check out dark matters forum and even the sacred official forums if you want to, there is a few other places besides those and this but not too active really.

P.S. i too play PoE, but currently on break from it and this game, so i know what those games are like, but the sacred game series is much larger than them and the builds can vary to a lot of different ways and be fun, also expect a lot of rerolls till you get to fully understand things :P
