New Player: Priest vs Runewarden vs Other
Been looking at all the various classes and two seem particularly interesting to me, priest & runewarden.
I know from other IREs that choosing a class is a pretty major deal and with so much investment etc I'd want to get it right first time.
I like the sound of Runewarden due to high tankiness, less reliance on artifacts, and overall straightforwardness however it seems they lack an affliction based instant kill? Am I right to think disembowel is damage based depending on the damage to body parts?
This is the one thing that I find a bit off-putting as I've always found having a purely affliction based kill to be a pretty major asset.
The other class that sounds interesting to me is priest, but I really don't have much of an idea of what artifacts they need if any, and how tanky they are in general. Or whether they are even any good at PvP. I did wonder about how easy it is to kill the angel entity, because I know in Midkemia for some ent based classes it was pretty easy to just crit-shot the ent and uh gg wp.
Due to the retirement mechanic it makes sense to shift all my retirement credits to a single account on Achaea and your character can only be 30 days old so it doesn't really give you a chance to fully explore before you make the choice. So I want to be sure I'm picking something that's right for me.
I know there are a lot of people on here with loads of experience so it'd be good to hear your thoughts.
I'll have enough credits to be able to trans out all the class skills, general skills and mini-skills so that should be good.
I'll probably invest in a couple artifacts eventually but don't want to play a class where I need a boatload right off the bat.
What I'm looking for is:
A class that shines at 1v1 PvP with low investment.
Reliable kill conditions, I'm not a fan of trick type combat myself.
PvE is not a major concern but preferably not be crap at it.
Enjoy roleplaying so if it's one of the classes that require a specific faction that's cool.
I've always found group combat so complicated with so many combos that nearly every class has something to offer even if it's not been thought of yet in IREs so if it's something that's traditionally seen as "weak" for groups I don't mind.
I know there are always flavor of the month classes that are strong right now, but not really interested in that, more where the class is over time.
I'd also be interested to hear what you think is the best race to go with that class, will probably be rolling a new character based on the feedback here.
