So I just started playing again. Haven't been on since 2015. Started looking through the forums about changes and I came across this thread. Naturally I was curious as to where my class would rank and guess what... it's apparently at the bottom of the list. I am a DK. Trans in weaponmastery and Brutality and 362 lessons away from trans necromancy and somehow I have 1824 lessons to use as well (no idea where those came from heh.)
I'm cityless at the moment and am level 89. @Septus
said the class has potential but is kind of tricky to work with as you have to work with two paths of afflictions: Salves and herbs instead of focusing on one route or the other, if I understood his post correctly. Seeing as I was never that great at combat to begin with as my coding abilities are beyond horrible, and the fact that if I change class, I'm losing 50% of my lessons in those skills... what would you all suggest for someone returning?
Should I class change and go a different route? Or should I stick with DK to prevent lesson loss and just focus more on pve aspects of the game while I slowly (very slowly) learn to how to fight in the game and work towards figuring out DK? With the new FTP setup, is the lesson loss even that big a deal anymore? I am not sure how hard it is to get the 20 credits a day.
DK is going to be very strong after the currently approved crop of classleads are implemented. If you are interested in being a DK, I would just get started again as a DK. By the time you're in fighting shape, you'll be good to go.
