Re: Basically...

Well.... Thanks. Here's my thoughts on your suggestion and a few more.

Paladin - I've had one empowered paladin many, many years ago. An Elf. But, this was back when XP holes existed and he got so far into xp debt it was pointless to continue.

Druid - I've tried a Druid a couple of times. I have a great role for one but that whole 'can only used blessed wood' thing just kills me. I have no clue where to get those kind of weapons and, without 'transmute' until you do get empowered, well it sucks.

Shaman - Many years ago, I attempted a Shaman, never got empowered and my chosen deity just vanished (this was before you could keep going).

Bard - And, once upon a time, long ago, I attempted a Bard. Wasn't crazy about the play style but, I have to admit the one or two PK fights he was in, he did a pretty decent job of surviving. Now though, as @Stevers so ably pointed out, I'd piss off herald because I'd immediately beat anyone who even THOUGH about mudsex. (Then again, they may like that. *shrug*)

Ranger - Tried one long ago. Cloud Giant. One of my few pk's. Ran into Galadon and found my target talking to an Imm no less... in the coffin maker's store.. So, I killed him right in front of the Imm. Again, dug an xp hole I couldn't get out of. Died a LOT. That was the only character I ever had that got awarded a title.

Healer - Never really tried one.

Tranny - I'm actually pretty good at. I've got a whole button targeting system for them that works well. My biggest problem there is you HAVE to have a group. If you log in late at nite and nobody even close to you is on, you don't have the option of going out solo. You just get beat senseless. My big fear is that you glue yourself to some warriors ass till hero that you still couldn't go out and solo explore. Kinda pointless to have a hero that can't do shit without someone else's help.

Shifter - not my style, period. I'd hate them.

Necro - One of the few PK fights I can say I won was with a necro. Orc tried to gank me and I slept him in a room with a door. Would love to have one but that whole 'the becoming' thing worries me. I'm not that good at RP.

Assassin - I've had some success with them but they get boring.

AP - Tried them dozens of times and they seem to get to the point that you can't solo any more.

Thief - Would LOVE to have one but, see AP

Conji - Had a tribby Gnome once many years ago... dug himself an xp hole that was just insurmountable.

Invoker - OMG the sitting in guild spamming spells just bored me to utter tears. And even then couldn't solo if I couldn't find a group.

Warrior - The one everyone suggests. Well, my first ever char was a Fire Giant. Two guys drug my noob ass around, handing me gear and just kept telling me to 'whirl'. I've tried once or twice since then and the worst part is that feeling of total blindness. If you don't know where the preps are to see invis or you don't have the money, to me, it's like sticking your head in a guillotine.

So those are just the memorable ones. I've tried literally a few hundred characters and something always became or becomes, insurmountable to me. Just like this last one. I died and was 10k xp to level and the only place I could find to gain xp, I was getting 50-70 xp per kill. And that 10k was after I'd already spent hours whittling 8k down to 3k. So here I envisioned spending hours, if not days, getting that 10k hole cleared up and just before I gained a level... bang, dead again. And the worst part was I saw no viable place to go solo even if I did gain a level. And I even went to places I've never been before. Followed the qhcf areas guide and all of them had 'issues' that made it a SERIOUS grind or a death sentence.

Now had I been getting 150-200 xp per mob, I'd have considered not deleting... but 200 mobs? No... I'm not a masochist.

Gnome transmuter is NOT a good choice. Nor is any mage right now.

Matrik July 23, 2017 06:29PM

Yes but, if enough in my range were online I'd get plenty of invites. If not, I was squatting in my guild thumb twiddling n/t

twistedvoid July 23, 2017 06:57PM

Yeah, exactly. Solo ability is imperative if your goal is hero right now. (n/t)

Matrik July 23, 2017 07:51PM

I don't get this thinking - every hero I have had has found plenty of groups on the way up

mcbeth July 24, 2017 06:37AM

Also, funny bit of logic:

Matrik July 24, 2017 07:44AM

Well, I tend to enjoy finding things to do pre-hero other than rank up

mcbeth July 24, 2017 08:33AM

You're right. It's absurd anyone could have trouble finding a group, ever. (n/t)

Matrik July 24, 2017 08:37AM

That's hardly what I said, I just don't think soloing ability is "imperative" (n/t)

mcbeth July 24, 2017 08:44AM

Huh, that's odd.

Matrik July 24, 2017 10:44AM

Depends on play times and how often you play.

Matrik July 24, 2017 07:32AM

At least nobody expects shit from a Gnome n/t

twistedvoid July 23, 2017 10:28PM

Right, but this goes back to your other post. I pick a ranger, buy gold rings in the academy and I just pissed off the Outlanders n/t

twistedvoid July 23, 2017 10:16PM

That was my post, not Matrik's. C'mon krilcov, try to remember things using your brain. n/t

Stevers July 25, 2017 03:05PM

The only weren't in outlander is because you stopped yourself.

Spronti July 24, 2017 06:04PM

Hell I was grouping with necromancers and Imperial anti-paladins all day long before joining outlanders

Kstatida July 25, 2017 02:33AM

Lol, what outlanders? Who cares? There is no one to stop you.

Matrik July 24, 2017 05:33AM

If you want to hero

Ultec July 23, 2017 11:21PM

Are you a Wishore alt? If not ignore.

jalim July 23, 2017 04:38PM

But let me tell you how long I've been around. I remember when Valg was a noob. n/t

twistedvoid July 23, 2017 05:10PM

He's still a noob (n/t)

Kstatida July 24, 2017 03:47AM

LOL.. n/t

twistedvoid July 24, 2017 05:46AM

And Pico had this really cool shrine n/t

twistedvoid July 23, 2017 05:14PM

Did you ever figure out the trick to gambling there? Infinite gold. (n/t)

Frosty July 23, 2017 05:54PM

I seem to remember something about it yes, but god man, that was DECADES ago... I recall getting confused the first time I was there. :D n/t

twistedvoid July 23, 2017 06:12PM

Ended a post with ":D" -- wishore confirmed. n/t

Stevers July 24, 2017 08:53AM

Honestly guys, I am not this Wishore you think I am. Unless of course if everyone just loved and respected him.. uh nvm. n/t

twistedvoid July 24, 2017 03:19PM

What's fascinating...

Dalbrin July 25, 2017 10:22AM

you sayin I'm smrt?

jalim July 25, 2017 11:03AM

Nyeahh see, I'm not this classy Stevers, who sounds handsome by the way, nyeahh see nyeahh n/t

Stevers July 24, 2017 07:04PM

Someone tried calling me pro when I made my account. Yeah, no. (n/t)

Frosty July 24, 2017 04:55PM

Nice try, Pro (n/t)

Kstatida July 25, 2017 12:20AM

Boy were they wrong.

Stevers July 24, 2017 08:55PM

Just because you don't laugh doesn't mean everyone doesn't laugh.

Frosty July 25, 2017 05:30PM

You're not funny. At all. (n/t)

Stevers July 25, 2017 06:34PM

You're not funny. At all. (n/t)

jhyrbian July 25, 2017 06:32PM

Who gets the brain on the weekend?

Frosty July 25, 2017 07:50PM

You've said more than one thing that's made me laugh. n/t

Stevers July 26, 2017 03:54AM

Called it. n/t

jalim July 24, 2017 09:07AM

Never heard of them. So no n/t

Oh come on

Kstatida July 26, 2017 12:28AM

It's Wishore pretending not to be Wishore. He'll have another alt within a couple weeks. n/t

jalim July 26, 2017 02:33AM

Poofed after it was pointed out apparently. (n/t)
