I can't decide what priest class I want to play
any will do
I have actually changed my mind a few times but have found an excellent class that not many will pick... with quite a few quests to do even early on
now you can guess which class *first hint* they can be many races but only a certain two combos can get a nice item later on via questing.
Hmm, perhaps I am just super sleep deprived but I can't think of what class race combo that is!
Pretty sure Troll Shammy was one, some sort of Snare item if i remember?
Was the other Tunare Druid?
Portis / TOlbath
See I was thinking druid karana
Thought it was the DE Cleric that had the snare necklace...
Seems we are both right Mezrah
MAGIC ITEM LORE ITEM NO TRADE
STR: +2 WIS: +3 MANA: +15
Effect: Clinging Darkness (Any Slot/Can Equip, Casting Time: 6.0) at Level 15
WT: 0.1 Size: TINY
Class: CLR SHM
Race: HUM DEF TRL
Slot 1, Type 7 (General: Group)
not really close yet, but the class can heal...
Thanks for that, my troll shaman on Fippy was of Innoruuk...alas my aged memory failed me or I would have done the quest ;-).
When EQ launched, I played a Cleric of Quellios, depending on the decision made about server type, I may be reprising that role, though I do prefer Shamans, especially when combined with a Monk...
This is always a tough decision. Cleric is the duh choice, but there will probably be plenty of them and they can't solo if you want to. It seems there are Druids and Shamans everywhere, but they are very rarely mains, and usually just boxes.
Personally I'd go with shaman because they are super strong Classic-Luclin, and not many people main them. They also seem to be more interesting to me, with canni and slows/dots for soloing. I always wanted to try to make a shaman tank.. Use aoe and slow to hold agro, it's a chain class and with slow can probably tank in Classic/Kunark.
I'm pretty much set on a Shaman at this point
I've more or less settled on a Shaman as a main at this point for those same reasons. That and I didn't enjoy my Beast Lord, because I felt like a lesser version of a Shaman, but I could top 10-15 DPS.
I'm trying to decide if I want to roll a cleric as well...I already ran 2 clerics to 2.0; and it's a choice between easily available rezzes and ability to get in guilds vs rez begging.
But then, I'm comparing this is 10+ years ago cleric populations...did TLP 2.0 have a cleric in every corner?
Clerics seemed rarer on Fippy than originally, but their were a fair number of boxed Clerics within the raiding guilds.
cleric main with a cleric box, then I'll have a quarter of a CH Rot lol
It's a bit late but I assume the class in question was a Paladin with High-elf / Half-elf tunare having access to the awesome Velious quested 2h that looks .
Yeah Paladin's are always sorely underrepresented and are great at snap aggro, they just don't have the super broken HT so are neglected.
I wouldn't mind being a Paladin, either. Ugh, the choices!
Yes, Natures Defender, amazing weapon and relatively easy to get.
Paladins are the best group tank imo. When the mob is slowed and the pally is rotating stuns they take less damage than other tanks. I think they're underrepresented because you can either chose:
a) Warrior, zero utility, struggles with agro unless lucky with procs but good damage and can tank raid mobs. Or,
b) SK, feign death and amazing agro but cannot tank raid mobs.
Pally has no FD and cannot tank raid mobs
correct, we have a winner, Ducreux and you even knew the quest, awesome class but not liked by many because they can't snare/pull like a SK
I still like paladins and thats what I will play when they get the finger out of the plug and launches the server.
Be a Cleric if you plan on raiding! Everyone will love you And well, they are the best healers by a large margin. You make or break your guilds ability to be able to raid some nights with your presence. Druids are just kinda there and usually there are enough shaman boxes around that all the bases are covered.
