      Seems like this is the best class to pick if you a) have no use for Bloodtinge and b) wish to use hunter tools that require some Arcane investment.

        Players can have a flamethrower after beating Father G. Whoever pick this class will have a wonderful time playing with Fire.

          Apparently, according to Gamesport "there is one unlisted stat that makes cruel fate one of the best classes to pick: discovery. As stated above, this stat increases the likelihood of enemy drops. Whereas all the other classes’ discovery starts at 100 or 103, Cruel Fate starts at a whopping 119." I don't know how on earth they would have such information, but having secret benefits no one can find out seems a little odd? As is, Gamespot says Cruel Fate has a higher drop rate as the other ones. Can anyone confirm this?
