right o im coming back to daoc in a few weeks (Exams atm :D) so i need to decide on what to play :)

ive decided to roll a cabby as my farmer char as i find them the most fun to farm with/easiest.

so i need to decide what to roll as my main pvp char. ill be leveling from level one on a new account so :p..

vampiir
ranger
valk
thane
bainshee
or warlock

ofc warlocks OPed so not really looking to play that but i may do <Shrug>.

bainshee sounds fun for the aoe bolts etc but dunno if its really my class..

so what do u think? which would u advise, tbh id be happy playing any one of them so

bainshees have 3 specs available to them

SG: CAE bolts, CAE dds, baseline single DD, CAE root
ES: AE bolts, AE dds, focus AE nearsight
PW: shears, debuffs, temp petting, CAE pulse

thing is with SG you can actually solo pull yellows with the other specs it's impossible, without haveing massive variance on your DDs... from my experience upto 25 at the moment SG spec is quite fun, you can pull masses of blues and kill em in a couple of casts. You have to watch your hp though coz having 20 blues on you can bring your hp down pretty fast :p

do you have to ideally pve in areas with mobs that are huddled together?

do certain areas become a no no?

hmm but the second spec line gives aoe bolts and aoe dd on a larger range? so couldnt i get aoe bolts and 2 aoe nukes off from a long range without getting interupted where as the first spec line (sg i think?) has a 600 or 700 range? meaning im alot closer. also on the char builder the delve of the dmg seems to be ruffly the same so why is cone spec better when u get more range in the other spec line?

Yes you have to exp in areas with mobs clustered together but in catas theres loads. With CAE theres no damage drop off, but with AE there is, so you'll be bolting the mobs in the middle for say 200 but the mobs on the outer ring for 20 :mad: so you'd get the outer mobs running at you faster. Not really tried ES my self, but this is from what I've read up on them.

hmmm, just a thought, but does this bugy going through walls stuff work in pvp zones aswell? like mag mell and domnann etc?

i really like the sound of bainshee they sound intresting and pretty useful actually

i played a mincer before i quit, theyre fun :D but fucking anoying in pve until high levels, i died too much solo pve tho maybe i wasnt looking in the right places to pve (pve'd in frontiers as it was rather empty) they are good in pvp tho. i dunno, i may roll a cabby and use it to PL my alts to 30 or so with decent equipment <Shrug> thx for the advice tho guys :D im gunna find a good lvling guide for a cabby in all the realms so i can get some decent lvling in. :D

Cabalists are definatly fun but if you want a kickass char that is a blast to play and you dont have a BB. Roll a Vampiir, good at PvE, _realy_ good at PvP vs unbuffed and buffed targets. And you can go lurri ^^
