Level blueprint or Blueprint class for chess piece?

Hi there, I’m used to more traditional programming so doing it visually using blueprints is new to me.

I’m working on a program where the user can move around objects with their mouse. No physics or effects or anything special like that. Just mouse down, move, mouse up.

It seems like a blueprint class is best for objects that need to do something and that level blueprints are more for static objects.

Am I wrong here or which is best?

You should indeed use a separate Blueprint Class for your chesspieces.
Maybe introduce a function “isValidMove” in an abstract class “ChessPiece” which has Current Location and DestinationLocation (From drag/drop) as an input. You can then override this function for every chess piece differently.
