Do you essentially need to be a programmer to be good at combat?
I used to play Achaea years ago, but I gave it up because of being disappointed with how combat works. I got the strong impression that if you are going to be any good, you need to practically learn a new programming language for the reflexes/scripts. Or just essentially become a programmer. Am I wrong in this? I don't really enjoy programming and didn't want to spend all my time creating complex code just so I wouldn't get killed by a venom... or so that I had any chance of winning. Is this wrong? I know you can buy pre-packaged scripts, but if people are selling them, then the "programmers" that make their own scripts will know all of their weaknesses. I don't know, is this wrong? Is there any way around having to basically learn a programming language to get good at combat?
Furthermore, I ended up choosing a class and sinking a lot lot of lessons in a class that seems to be more combat focused. I have thought about forgetting the class and changing to another class that isn't so combat focused... but then I lose 50% of my lessons. I'm halfway through one skill and transcendent in another, so thats a lot of lessons to lose. I have thought of multi-classing, since I'm level 71, (and I need to be level 80) but then I read that you need to be transcendent in all of your class skills. I see no use for evileye or apostasy if I have no desire for combat.
Does anyone have any advice?
