The first thing you need to do when starting up Destiny is create your character, and although the race and gender you pick is merely cosmetic, which class you choose has a big impact on how your game will play out. Each of the available classes has its own strengths and weaknesses, so we’ve picked out the main points here to help you select the right class to suit your personal play style.
It should be noted that although each class specialises in one particular trait, there are upgrades to unlock as you level up that can be used to rebalance your character. Also, remember that you have three different character slots available and your Glimmer, Grimoire score etc carries over between them, so it’s possible to try out each of the classes without too much trouble.
