Hey there! So, rather new and well on the way to tri transing my serpent. Huzzah!
I have heard some initial things that have sounded problematic to me though, so I will ask.
- I have been told a serpent needs an artefact dirk to be viable in combat. Is this true? I am a rajamala with 16 dex.
- If this does have a shed of truth, how much more important is it than say an artefact sword to a rune warden?
- related to the above, should I then prioritize a dirk or work on my other skills like avoidance?
- what level should I be reaching to start learning the 1v1 game?
I am very interested in learning combat so any help would be appreciated. Thank you.
edit: all these questions are themed around artefacts for a reason. I just don't want to have to drop a bunch of money to have a hope in combat. I don't mind having a hill to climb against slight advantages, but if I outright have to drop 500-1000 to get on the same level then the class is probably not for me.
