I am an Apostate and it is awesome. I love pretty much everything about it, Mhaldor, and its flavor... BUT my mind keeps looking at Serpent and like "oh man, that looks so nice". Then I have internal dialog and search forums and look at nearly every post about Apostate and Serpent. I'm going to be diving into combat soon (as my primary focus), and coding a system around it as I go. Additionally, I want to get dragon (level 86 right meow).
If I switch to Serpent:
- I lose the tankiness and baalzadeen
- Would need to reincarnate and possible get an artifact dirk
- Would need to get lessons to tri-trans again
- Combat would be more complex and timing for lock stuff is more critical? (just going by searching forums)
I have Trans all class and general skills, and trans fitness. I have these artefacts: SoA, a crimson-hued daegger (would need to tradein), a golden band of Draconic vigour, a Ceylonese ring, a ring of flying, a ring of Lucretian clarity, a Stygian pendant, an Amulet of the Will (would need to tradein?!), and goggles of whitesight (hey, I spent a ton of time bashing in the tundra, blizzards are annoying).
Can you tell me why I should just stay Apostate or switch to Serpent? I don't care so much about the credit costs.
