Hail, Im thinking of multiclassing into something affliction based (I dont care about faction changes). Im sure some of you recieved some tells from me IC with the same question. I hear great things about both of these classes for their flavor and great combat. I would be interested in 1v1 combat but from what I understand this mostly comes from bounties and you would need some hinderance to pull it off, giving the advantage to Occultist. Its also important to me that the class can reach top tier pvp, which from forum posts I read that Occultist struggles with breaking past a certain plateau based on RNG aspects and lifestones to clear affs.
Both of them are interesting to me RP wise. Ive tried both classes to about level 30 but I dont have the time to test both on their combat.
In terms of bashing, I hear Shaman is great while Occultist is slightly above average. Im currently level 64 and depthswalker is starting to slow down on my journey to dragon.
I will be getting the 5k credit package for my character of choice so the decision is important to me.
