Dark and Darker is a challenging, fantasy FPS dungeon PvPvE adventure where you can work with friends to uncover mythical treasures, defeat terrible monsters, and make sure you don’t caught by other treasure-hunters. We have to put together this Dark and Darker Class guide as an overview to get you started playing the game!
Dark and Darker Classes
There are six classes available to play in the playtest of Dark and Darker that is live now. They are: Wizard, Rogue, Ranger, Fighter, Cleric, and Barbarian. We’ll go into greater detail about each class’ pros and cons, but you can think of them as:
- Combat Classes: Barbarian, Fighter, Rogue (Stealth), Hunter (Ranged)
- Healing Classes: Cleric, Wizard
The Wizard Class is a sorcerer, so they cast powerful spells and wield magical weapons to fight off enemies, but they can have a slower interaction speed, do low physical damage, and aren’t as durable during play due to low health.

The Rogue class pl,ays as an assassin and uses deception in its playstyle. This results in a high movememt and attack speed, and they can interact with objects quickly without being detected. They are also able to detect and disable traps while picking locks without being seen. The drawbacks of this class are that they have low health, low magic resistance, and low damage bonuses.

The Ranger class is a hunter that uses long-ranged weapons, particularly ones like bows, and they are able to track enemies and set traps. They can also start campfires quickly. The drawbacks of this class are that they cannot use most of the game’s melee weapons and they do low damage with those melee weapons anyway.

The Fighter class is a DPS class that does a lot of damage through weapons and absorbs damage through equipment/armor. They are considered a fairly well-rounded class, which makes them good for someone new to the game. Their downsides are that they can’t cast spells and that their effectiveness is dependent on their weaponry and armor.

The Cleric class is a healing and DPS-dealing class that uses melee weapons, like a Flanged Mace, to do damage, can absorb damage through plate armor, and can cast healing and protective spells. They have a slow attack and interaction speed as well as low damage bonuses.

The Barbarian class does lots of damage and is one of the go-tos for soloing, as one of the major pros to this class is its extremely high health and innate magic resistance. They have slow base movement, attack speed, and interaction speed, which can make them vulnerable.
