And this alters what the class was in the first decade of the game. They are incredibly overpowered, which means also very busy. Enchanters originally did cc and debuffs etc. Connections were too precarious for many groups to willingly say, "Sure! Charm and buff and give weapons to a pet, and also mez adds! I'm sure we'll be fine when you go LD!" Enchanters are now mages for people with an a*s of steel. You shall sit with that pet, for 5 hour stretches. So it depends on you! If you really want to get in it, absolutely great class, and fun. One of the best! But enchanters have turned into dps beasts because of the reliability of the universe these days. Charisma works, and charm is very reliable. How about that? I got stuck in a flat!
