I am considering returning to Achaea after about 2 real life years. In that time frame - just about everything related to combat changed. For those of you who know/remember me - I am not a skilled solitary tactician or single combat fighter. But the roleplay and character decisions throughout my game time have put me into untold combat situations and developed enemy structures against most people who don't exercise restraint (Translation: I got griefed a lot).
How can I change the way my character is setup now, to be a viable combatant within the new structure? I think I have to lose an artifact or two since I can't wield the broad/axe combo and just double-slash until something dies. I would still like to be a more difficult target, so I can finally quit dying and get past level 77.
I have a ton of artifacts, will have to log on sometime to get the list for consideration in answering this question - Just know that if it was a useful combat artifact to be an unskilled hack n slash damage guy back in the day, I probably have it.
What I don't understand is specializations and just how to actually build a character for combat now. I would like to remain a Knight class, for roleplay comfort.
