I am relatively new to Achaea, but have done enough research to understand most basic mechanics and the like. That being said, I suppose that my main interests lie in bashing and RP. I was hoping to get the input of higher level and much longer-played individuals such as yourselves as to your take on ability to do both as either an Alchemist or Blademaster. I am not going to spend RL money, so the ability to garner it through bashing or trade means to fund credits and the like are a consideration.
Looking at the skills and mechanics, both classes appeal to me the most. It has been difficult to ascertain, however, the efficiency of either class in bashing. Blademaster as I understand just uses stances to either go glass canon or tank and slashes away (that is likely overly simplified, but that's the general idea). As alchemists, Educe Iron looks to be the bashing combat choice. My question then is, how do both classes scale as they get higher?
Does Educe Iron fade off in strength comparatively once you start getting into the higher levels of bashing (where efficiency and time seem to actually start mattering)? Do Blademasters peter out with the drawslashes (or whatever they use at higher levels)? Do Alchemists find it is easier due to their ability to essentially provide their own curing agents?
I realize it is asking quite a lot from someone that nobody even knows, and that this is a rather large supposition that people will take their time to explain things in depth for no other reason than that I am asking. Thank you very much for your time, and I really do hope that I have this in the correct section of the forum...
