I've just started here in Imperial and I have spoken to a few people in game already about choosing a class. I know I want to play in Kinsarmar for now so that limits things a bit.
I am so broken I just missed that awesome leveling promotion, I'll never get over that, but I can bring my Elite membership so that should help a bit right?
Right now I am torn between all of the neutral classes. I like Shaman and Berserker from playing them both in the newbie zone. Renegade sounds fantastic as a theme from the description on the main website. Engineer I could take it or leave it, but it is new so maybe I could discover something?
I definitely want to PvP. It doesn't have to be my main focus, but I am about 80% interested in that over other game activities as medium-to-long term goal.
I know from talking to @Wyll
and a few others in game that Shaman is a solid PvP choice. Coding shouldn't be a huge issue for me I don't think. So if that is the main hurdle, it sounds exciting! I don't mind class complexity, and I'm patient enough to "git gud."
I've also heard Berserker is solid for group PvP (and isn't all PvP in a group?), isn't played a lot (bring exclusive usefulness? I love being useful right?), and bashes really well. Considering level 100 is a requirement, Berserker might be a solid choice as well.
Sadly the newbie zone didn't really favor me towards either Shaman or Berserker. I don't have any RP planned out yet so neither of them fit some RP theme I might want to play.
Considering membership type credit investment and the 2000 lessons package from the site, (some classes are more expensive, that is just reality) what do the long term players suggest? I'm not in love with any class yet, sadly, and I'm wasting time trying to choose. Being GMT+7, I thought the forums might get me a more broad base of thoughts from more players than those I could reach out to from the newbie zone.
Lastly, People who fight against Kinsarmar, is it lacking something in particular? Don't mind filling a niche and really learning my class, just want to get the most out of my investment. Thanks for your time.
