I've been slowly tinkering on Serpent combat (and, to a lesser degree,
Dragon combat - but that's something for later), and I've noticed that
I've been getting a bit of trouble from prep-classes. I keep weaving up,
I stick Xentio, and I'm working on knowing when to pre-apply
Restoration (seems like I should make a key for it, and know when to
start pre-applying!). I have 15 Dexterity and Thoth's fang. However, I've been looking into improving my
ability to dodge attacks. I've one of two options: I could get Level
2 Dex boots, or I could get an artefact pet with artefact spurs.
I've been trying to weigh the benefits of each, and while the optimal route would be, "BOTH!", I don't have 4000-5000cr just sitting in my character's account. Here's what I have so far:
Faster hunting speed.
Maybe faster flay/backstab/phase? (dstabs can't be faster a la Thoth's fang). @Sena
, please fact-check my ass.
Reporting - no more surprise visits in Underworld/Annwyn!
Jousting becomes a fun to-do option.
The pet-people interactions will be absolutely hilarious/fun/epic.
All of the many and varied benefits that riding an artefact pet have. Like...Um...Hmm..
So, the question is, am I missing anything? Which is the better option against prep-classes? Thanks in advance!
