I/l, Hero, Bucc, or others?

EnvyMe Level 203 Bellocan Paladin
So I'm probably going to hit 200 by the end of tomorrow's (october 7th) 2x exp, then get heros will, echo, etc. After that, I still plan to upgrade my pally's equips, but I don't just want to play him. So I was wondering which class (I/L, Hero, buccaneer, or other suggestions) would be the best for my situation.

I'm looking for something that:

  1. could do the most damage with the least amount of additional funding (I have % str earrings, shield, sort of cape and gloves, and 27 atk VSS that I'm going to cube for str/all stat)
EDIT: I realized that I worded this improperly, and most people are just ruling out any class that doesn't use % str. I should've said that I just want a class that can do decent damage without a ton of money, so even if they use % str I'd be glad to spend a couple hundred mil on some lower %9 earrings or whatever and clean empress gear
  1. is relatively mobile (I'm pally, so "relatively" isn't that mobile; just concerned that buccs, with a lack of teleporting skills or even transformations, might be a bit slow)
  2. has respectable survivability (I have auto pot and auto buff)

EDIT: I didn't mention this at first, since whether a class is fun or not is dependent on if you like it personally, but:
  1. is fun to you, and you would recommend to others

I mentioned "others" in the title because I haven't had much experience with a lot of the classes after all these revamps, and none with the new classes that are coming out. If anyone has a suggestion that seems to match the description, I'd be very grateful for your input.

I am a bucc, as you can see on my basil ID. Do not make one if you hate being immobile.

I am currently making an I/L. Lv 70 atm. It is pretty weak until lv 120 (chain lightning). Have patience in making one of these.

Well from all those 3 i'd recomend the Bucc since his the strogest have a nice survive ability and a big veraity of skills and they can rich cap easily. sence u have lvld a pally nearly to 200 i wont recomend hero cuz well maybe its not a pally but its very alike. if ill recomend others ill recomend DB! try out the theif class and well for me DB are awesome specially when u have a lot of fund to them. they can do insanly dammeg when they funded and they very fun with a lot of flashy and cool skills.

well you state you want good damage without much more funding
and you already have wepatk and %str stuff.... so....

Hero, Pally, Dark Knight, Aran, Mihile, Buccaneer, Cannoneer

you already have a pally, so we can remove that from the list

Hero, Dark Knight, Aran, Mihile, Buccaneer, Cannoneer

you stated you want ok mobility
aran doesnt have the best mobility, and buccs have no mobility

Hero, Dark Knight, Aran*, Mihile, Cannoneer

next you stated survivability, all pirates are out

Hero, Dark Knight, Aran*, Mihile

that leaves us with these three (and aran who i let in on a by)
im no expert in warriors, not in the slightest

but i'll try to give an overview of them all:

Hero: high damage, the most common choice for explorer warrior, mobility is prolly the same as pally

DRK: one of the most sought after buffs in the game (decentlol), lower damage, VERY high survivability (still less than pally though)

Aran: one of the highest dps classes with minimal funding to no funding, rather boring though, low mobility

Mihile: LAZORZ, good range, prolly the best of all these four, can reach monsters halfway across the map, ok damage from what ive seen, and good buffs

Yeah I was thinking about Mihile, especially for the empress buff, and I already made one so that's helpful. Only problem is, and I don't know why, but I seem to favor hero skills more than Mihile's lasers, like I just love using brave slash or whatever it's called, even though it's vastly inferior to his lasers. The hair helps to make up for it though. I love it more than half the hairstyles that I'd be willing to spend NX on royal hair to get, and it's free!

I have to disagree about Arans being boring, I think it's a great class for people like me with short attention spans sir.

yeah boring is a pretty subjective word, and should only be taken as such

but i feel button mashing the same button about 75% of your characters life is boring

I'm pretty sure you're set for a hero.

But if you wanna try and give a mage a shot, I/Ls are pretty good. They're fast, pretty mobile, and pretty good in survivability. On top of that, unfunded i/ls mages are pretty decent damage dealers and excel in mobbing. But wit more funding, you essentially get more bang for your buck (since mage equips are significantly cheaper than everything else)

Be a cannoneer, they're pretty good, and you'd be unique

@Coronaboy Yeah, I played a cannoneer when they just came out, and I actually really enjoyed them, despite at first thinking I wouldn't. I just really hate the look of the cannon, and as @Beesafree said, I'm not sure how good their survivability is.
