Combat newb and class selection
After years of being a total noncom in IRE games, I now have the desire to learn at least basics and be somewhat helpful. Given that I've never been a combatant, though, I don't know what I'm getting myself into with various classes in terms of learning curve and artefacts. Classes I'm considering are Apostate, Depthswalker, Infernal and Occultist. I've played each to level 50 so I've basic understanding of each (in theory).
From what I can tell, and I could be completely wrong, Occultist seems like it might be the easiest to learn (no reliance on venoms/limb breaks) while Infernal seems the opposite (because both). I'm not looking for an easy-button, one attack class, but I don't want to invest a lot of time into a character and realize I'm in over my head. Also, it's going to be a long time before artefacts become a possibility, so extreme reliance on them is a deal-breaker.
Thoughts? Advice? Thanks in advance.
