So guys, I used to play a way long time ago, back when I was like 18. I'm 30 now, so it's been quite a while. I'm thinking about coming back, because I heard that Achaea has some pretty fun conflict mechanics and people here aren't whining douche bags. I've been reading up a little, and a few people I know have been talking to me about the classes. I'm pretty sure I'm going to go with Ashtan as a city, but I'm somewhat torn between the classes. I kinda like Occultist, and I kinda like the ideas behind Alchemist.
I don't want a super hard class to start off with, so I was hoping that some combatants from either class could tell me about each class, and if anyone who isn't an Occultist or Alchemist would like to weigh in about their specific class, please feel free. I'm not a big fan of pay-to-win classes, though.
