Are you going to try to focus on healing? Have a damage based approach? Or are you going to try to be a jack of all trades and do both healing and damage in one build?
Im going to go in a all damage approach, demolishing everything in my path, mauhahaha!
I typically start out as a healer to get easy groups and raid spots and will likely start that way here depending on how groups work.
I’ll probably do major damage with healing as a secondary. I’d like to be “support” more then healing, dealing with specific enemies that may be an issue to the party.
Have you given a look at the Engineer at all? They seem like they will be focused on support more than heals.
I am giving it some thought, but I have four tabletop AMs, so I’m kinda bias to them :p. I’m also concerned auto-turrets might be a little tooo techy for dorfs after the war of the beards.
Yeah for sure. I think I have changed my style a little on my AM and will focus on damage first to level and then switch to heals for dungeons and raids. Slayer is staying damage. I will not be tanking.
In ESO I played as a Templar and used like 1 healing spell with the rest being dps. Might do something along those lines here as well as an Arch Mage (if possible lol).
If I decide to make a Archmage it’ll most definitely a healer spec for me.
All in Hella dmg, prolly a secondary healing spell Just to stay alive
You will have to choose a path for the skills, dps or healing, probably not able to select skills from one build or the other.
Gonna be ranger/archer class… always play my fav class on MMOs… anything that use a BOW.
I don’t know that sounds wonky … having mages out there that cannot heal at all?!! If the path selection only happens past L10, my guess is that even a nuke mage would by then have been allowed to place “skill points” (or whatever build system is employed) into a basic healing ability / skill. It will just ultimately be less powerful and restricted in range, if your option to improve heal skills are locked off beyond L10, should you choose the dps route.
I’m hoping there are some unique skills that require you to think for boss fights
Yeah that’d be neat. Decided that I’ll probably be support
Nice Z! We can rock support together!
Our tanks will never die
I Will probably choose a tank and the tanky class seems to be the Warrior priest.
Wanna try healing nature magic mage)
I always make 2-3 maxed characters, generally start with a dps, then tank and then healer.
