Considering burning a ranged class but unsure

Hey everyone,with the burning event I really want to burn a ranged class im thinking wa,jett, mech or ab. The question is which of them can be fairly strong without too much put into them im mainly asking because it'll be a second main to my phantom and im hoping the class will be stronger then it without as much put into it so i can focus more on my phantom when i do want to. Pro's and cons from you mains would be great too since i actually havent played any of them except WA but didnt get too far. Thanks for the help and enjoy the events.

With mostly maxed out 4th job skills, wa is killing Zak fastest albeit has the most buffs to have to worry about.

Mech's strength comes from map control first then your character attacking second.

Jett trained the fastest for me due to all 4th job maxing out prior to 140 and the fact that Jett has a legit vac hack skill.

I haven't made an AB but unless things have changed they looked like they have a lot of mobility with slower atk speed.

Well if you consider that AB needed skills to increase their damage cap to be competitive you can probably correlate that to having high % skill damage.

Mech is really lazy training even post nerf.

Jett I'd pass on.

Wind archer is a really solid choice.

Are burning characters for new characters only (freshly made from chara creation)?

+1 @irlesley yes sadly.

@gakinotsukai thanks for the input, how far have you gotten your WA?

@twopointonefour yeah idk if thats a good or a bad thing, maybe the different style would be nice im not sure. but yeah mostly leaning towards ab or wa not 100% sure yet tho

WA: Lots of damage, pretty good mobbing, decent mobility. Main cons are can't move during Song and a handful of buffs. It's oe of your better choices in the list and an overall good class.

Jett: Pretty good mobility, terrible everything else. Low 1v1 damage, short range on mobbing skills and doesn't do much damage.

Mech: Never played except when they first came out, so no opinions on them.

AB: I'd choose between AB or WA from your list. ABs are tanky as long as they're attacking, they have amazing mobility, decent 1v1 damage and they're easy to train.

@akiro: It's currently 124, my friend made it to 206 though (unfunded with me getting him help here and there) and the mobbing is very nice. WA also get their own decoy skill as well.

I think it'll be a good alternative to your Phantom. I really found myself having to rely on stolen skills on that class to make the numbers better.
