What is the best class to pick as a beginner in calamity mod

I recommend you to play as a mixed if you are a beginner. But if you don’t like it you can try this.

Go to calamity mod with a new character and new world. Make sure you are using a mode like Hero. Now beat the dessert scourge using the weapons according to each class I have given. It will help you to get an idea about what you are good at.

Personally, I don’t like to play terraria as a summoner and a mage. But I use minions as a mixed-class player.
