    Depends on your play style. If you check in on war every 10-20 minutes or less, Ghost.

    If you camp the round, Reaper.

    A Ghost is there for massive damage hits to the target mostly and can choose to play support with Ghost tags much like a sniper can with suppress.

    A Reaper is best utilized plaguing actives and hard targets *before* the team has exhausted their tokens on the target itself.

    Often for a Reaper to succeed on the leaderboard they have to plague actives as soon as possible, tying up stim tokens and gaining player damage from enemy attacks.

    They can with precise blade but it's not the same as an adrenaline rush power/piercing shot.

    When I see a reaper take the player damage leaderboard it is when the empire has a "plague every active" policy to soften them up. (Dead tokens hurt much less than live ones and making your opponent starve for HP can be quite advantageous.)

    With plague 3 on a win, and all visible active plagued, an active team with no/lazy stims can feed a reaper player damage by attacking.

    On top of that, a reaper with a token generating circle (Frank/Francesca/Layla etc) can strongly benefit in match battle points with Ambush at max by targeting sleeping or stunned targets. If you have Titans in your empire that stun often, the combination of Reaper/Titan hunting in concert with one another can be very effective. Your hits might not be as big but cumulatively you will have more of them.

    If that is where you prefer to be, Ghost would probably benefit you more. If you're playing against dead empires you're not going to get much plague damage on incoming attacks, meanwhile the ghost will help you make short work of building defenders.


    Anyone else care to chime in?

    Well we have like 16 actives

    Re: Reaper or Ghost

    Well since you already had overkill to begin with, i would advise you to go ghost and start collecting more critical lts.. Its kinda inconsistent for reaper to rely on crit IMO.

    if you're focus mainly on damage, ghost are your best bet trust me; its not like reaper can't deal big damage (i am maxed reaper) but with same stats and similar lt power ghost outguns reaper wayyy stronger. Sure you can count bloodlust for 20% att power and damage boost the whole war, but its only needed mainly to build att power to succesfully applying plague to bigger defender. Meanwhile as ghost after adrenaline rush you can go killing frenzy if your healths allows it (more health longer frenzy)

    In simple both class needs luck to deal good damage, ghost needs crit to procs along with power shots. Reapers needs palgue and ambush procs. Ghost seemed more consistent and not too situational compared to reaper. And Ghost has defesinve skill (dodge spree) and reaper got life steal for offensive wins (at lvl 5)

    In lower league one big ghost could slaughter the whole opponent empire

    If you're okay wih it try reaper or demo terms. But if ya feel like thats not what you really want to do, find another bunch of players to play with. If you weren't having fun, then you're doing it wrong.

    I agree with this. I have never pushed someone to play a class that they didn't want to because of the empire needs. If someone does do that here, it is their choice to take one for the team based upon their own observations.

    If you prefer hunting players in EvE and they're pushing you to go Term and you feel obligated, don't spec grenade first if you would rather be a bury monster. (You said terminator, you *didn't* tell me to just be another demo toon.)

    Re: Reaper or Ghost

    My experience:

    I use to be an assassin. Veteran 8, fully upgraded. I've "upgraded" to reaper and didn't like it. I've switched to ghost and I'm supper happy now. Veteran 8 again, lol.

    Good luck!

    Re: Reaper or Ghost

    I wouldn't be very happy if an empire told me that I gotta play a particular type of toon, I'd be gone but thats me, but in my case I have 5 toons and more or less have one of each type anyways so I get to experience all types anyways.

    Re: Reaper or Ghost

    Both classes have their specific roles. Ghosts are the man killers with rush and other skills.

    Reapers are finishers, they are mainly to cap and restrict opponent demo using plagues.

    Bury monster? So what would you suggest. I have term unlocked but not assassin 3 so definitely not reaper.

    So of I was picking between term and reaper would you guys say term. They aren't making me but I am kind of sick of ghost. So I asked them.

    Currently terminators are the most versatile class in the game capable of choosing between going for building or player damage mvp slots. The bury/big gun combos absolutely shred stacked buildings and can take player damage from many Ghosts.

    So if you're under pressure to choose of the two classes and feel obligated to do so but are more of a player hunter in play style, stack the Terminator with splash LTs and attack skills while leaving the building damage to the HW.

    Re: Reaper or Ghost

    So you suggest a bury build term over a reaper?

    Re: Reaper or Ghost

    I’d always vote a demo class but I’m biased.

    Do you see shields often j?

    Also, what are your better LTs?

    Does your empire have a lot of demo currently?
