I play this game mainly solo, I like to do old raids and such so I try to lean towards DPS as much as I can. This expansion seems to have shaken things up a bit with the changes to spell and ability double casting and the auto attack change. Checking EQ2u I saw a lot of SKs pumping auto attack stats and such so I went with that but I have a few questions for the SK pros. I'm pretty solid on general MMO theorycrafting and such, just not EQ2 specifically since there's... A lot of stuff. SKs last expansion seemed to favor spell double cast, but the spell cast overcapping is gone and the enemy buff seems to give them massive double cast resist so I'm guessing that's useless in current content, and they now seem to be pushing ability double cast. Does it function the same as spell double cast? Would it be worth it to stack back my spell double cast on top of ability double cast for old content where it's still effective, or just focus on ability double cast? I saw a lot of SKs with no flurry at all. Is this just a useless stat for tanks? Hard to come by on gear ect? I know most SKs I checked are likely tanking so the damage is unimportant but I'm curious either way. I've been told DPS Merc are awful. I currently use the KA Merc, Evania. She seems to be pretty solid but I've read a lot of weird things about mercs. Would.it be worth it to swap to a fps Merc when I don't need the healing/cures or are they that bad? And finally, how big of a difference does 2H vs Sword/Board make? I've typically run sword and board because I like to do big pulls and it's safer/easier for me but swap when I don't need it. I haven't found a solid 2h yet this expansion, I only just hit 120, so I'm wondering if I should put time into getting one or just stick with sword/board. My character is Kaidarak on Halls of Fate if anyone wants to check EQ2u. Any and all advice is appreciated.
