I was just thinking in general overall. Thanks for the answer thats kind of what I was thinking. Part of me was thinking a hard-hitting like Kallard or thursar to finish opponents quickly. 1vx in other games I played really took burst and skill to finish quick so you wouldnt get overwhelmed.Dungeon or open world?
In dungeons I think Thursar. Superior damage and high passive regeneration + lifesteal.
Outsite of dungeons mounted fatmages are a realy pain in the ass for Thursars. So probably Veela there. Decent psy and good speed to reset fights. But with the lower damage bonus and lower life of a Veela you need eighter A) superior gear or B) superior skill compared to your attackers.
But usually, I get mounted zerked in the open world and my survival chances are pretty low regardless of the character... Horses that seem to be able to climb any slope are an issue...
