Assessment

Apsaras is a decent support-attacker hybrid class which boasts the second highest multi-attack rate right after Luchador and rivaled only by Runeslayer. In general, using a spear will provide buffs that affect the entire raid, including additional damage through criticals or multiattacks. Conversely, using an axe will only affect the player's party but bring about a different set of buffs from the spear effects, including providing 20% charge bar boosts and debuff success rates. Equipping Helmwige square.jpg Helmwige activates both spear and axe effects, including the class passive, allowing to bring them to their fullest potential.

The class also enjoys being able to equip other powerful weapons, such as True Conviction Flashspear square.jpg True Conviction Flashspear, True Infernal Flamescythe square.jpg True Infernal Flamescythe or Hermanubis square.jpg Hermanubis. However, when using an axe, choosing Berserker over Apsaras may also be better, especially when the presence of an Atma or Hollowsky Weapons in the party grid are considered. Due to plenty of similarities with the Berserker, the latter's sword proficiency may fit in parties better that also use swords. As a counterpoint, an axe-wielding Apsaras is capable of providing better charge bar management, some sustenance, and better debuff success rates for the entire party than Berserkers can.

A similar argument can also be made with Spartan and Sage versus spear-wielding Apsaras, though in general, only pick either classes when their utility is needed. If a content can be burst through with mostly damage, then an Apsaras provides better damage output than either of the two classes.

When picking subskills, consider the following:
