Thinking about making Achaea my new home. While MKO closing is the main catalyst for this, a majority of my IRE experience is actually in Lusteria. I'll have roughly 15,000 credits to spend on artifacts. Lessons are separate. I enjoy bashing and org defending/combat. I've never been too terribly interested in being the number one 1v1 guy.
I've read that runewarden and bard can be great bashers and (I think?) group combatants. It sounds as if warden is a bit less complex. Looking for opinions on the two given the 15,000 credits I could invest in them.
I'm more leaning towards warden, but I think my perception of what a bard is is tainted by playing bard in Lusternia - from what I've gathered they may not be that similar.
If I go warden, wondering if race plays a big part in things and also what artifacts I should be looking at.
Thanks for any and all advice. If you think I'm discounting a class given my like for bashing and group combat let me know!
