Best for what exactly? Objectively/numbers wise probably mara and sniper.

That said my favorite is guardian and thereby it's the best for me.

Best is relative, and leaderboards can be misleading. If you are new or rusty, you will do a lot more damage with an easy rotation or priority system than with a complicated rotation that has the potential to do far superior damage.

Then it depends on the fight what is the best. If you can't do damage while moving or not in melee range, red circles may cause your actual dps to drop below specs that theoretically do far less damage than yours.

That said, the "best" glowstick user is Mara for sure. (if you dig the class, which I certainly don't). The "best" ranged specs would be Virulence/Engineering sniper, and the "best" melee gunners would be AP Powertech (burst) and Lethality Operative (sustained)
6.0: Do not add that gaudy flashing icon above every vendor's head without an option to turn it off.

Of those I'd say arsenal merc and deception sin are the "best" to get back in the saddle.

yes, all classes are viable if the player is competent, if the player isn't, even fotm classes will be underwhelming

If you are looking for a best class to play, let me stop you right there. There are no good or bad classes, only good and bad players. Everyone should play what they like, not what some crappy theory suggests...

Well said. Play the classes you find the most fun in terms of the mechanics and the accompanying visuals (shooting lightning looks way cooler than throwing rocks, imo).
It's hard work to tell which is Old Harry when everybody's got boots on.
