I haven't played for 10+ years, and a lot has changed!
I've been reading help files and the forums and wiki over the past
couple of days trying to get a handle on things, but I have a lot of questions.
My main is an
Infernal with everything trans, level 3 bracelets, 3 pipes and a trade
seal (I have no idea what that does). I have 500 credits, or 700 if I trade in my seal, or 1600 if I trade in my seal and my bracelets.
If I retire I'll get ~2900 retirement credits and if I retire my other IRE characters I'll get another ~3500.
there any reason not to retire? One alternative would be retiring
my other characters, keeping this one and starting a new one with ~3500
credits, but alts don't seem that great now that multiclass is a thing.
- What classes are best for PvP and bashing on a 6400 credit budget, which is 2700 after transing everything? From reading the forums Runewarden seems like a popular recommendation. I also like Monk, Serpent and Depthswalker, but it seems like skills and classes have changed a lot since I was last active, so my impression of them from way back when probably isn't that accurate - server side curing sounds like it will make Serpent very different to play, for instance, and it seems like everyone is super high level and super artied out these days, which I'm sure makes damage kills harder unless you have lots of arties yourself.
- What's the best way to spend the 6400 credits? Is transing everything worth it or are artifacts more beneficial once you have your class skills? I have a vague notion that it's better to go for offensive stuff to have the ability to get kills against people with lots of arties rather than focusing too much on survivability, but I have no idea how valid that is.
