Arkham Horror: The Card Game features five different investigator classes, all of which fill a different role during scenarios. Each class currently has two investigators that you can play as, but, with Path to Carcosa releasing in the coming months, there will be even more investigator choices.
Guardians are the most combat-oriented of the five investigator classes. Their cards can deal damage, lots of it. They also have high health making them reliable as tanks when it comes to fighting. The two Guardian class investigators that are currently available for play are Roland Banks (Core) and Zoey Samaras (The Dunwich Legacy).
Mystics are the spellcasters of the group. Their cards often feature a high risk/reward ratio and can really help an investigation along in or out of combat. They may not have the highest health, but it’s nothing to scoff at and their sanity is quite high. The two Mystic class investigators that are currently available for play are Agnes Baker (Core) and Jim Culver (The Dunwich Legacy).
Rogues are evasive and prefer to deal with obstacles indirectly. Their cards let them earn resources, take those resources, and turn them into opportunities to better their position. Rogues have a few potent combat cards as well, though Rogues themselves are not the best combatants. The two Rogue class investigators that are currently available for play are Jenny Barnes (The Dunwich Legacy) and “Skids” O’Toole (Core).
Seekers are the investigative powerhouse of the five classes. If they can stay out of the way of confrontation, they can really get the momentum going on advancing the Act deck. While they have high sanity, they have low health and should avoid combat whenever possible. The two Seeker class investigators that are currently available for play are Daisy Walker (Core) and Rex Murphy (The Dunwich Legacy).
Survivors are the best at…you guessed it…surviving. They can take a bad situation and make more out of it than any other investigator. While they’re not the most combative bunch, they are slippery and can aid the investigation in other ways. The two Survivor class investigators that are currently available for play are “Ashcan” Pete (The Dunwich Legacy) and Wendy Adams (Core).
