I tried to get through the reading of the sticky Guide for new and returned players as well as several other threads but the more I read, the more I get confused...... Is there a more linear walkthrough like how to proceed from step A all the way down to step Z to get such a template done with all skills, gear and so forth ? For example, starting from the step A : choice of race. Which is best to pick and why ? Human, Elf or Gargoyle ? Then, following with step B, working up the stats: Intelligence, Dexterity and Strength. What should they respectively be for best results and why ? Then, following with step C, determining which skills to pursue and to what level. And so forth, with step D being what gear should be seeked, piece by piece and with what modifiers so as to achieve the best results.... The problem with the existing Guides for me at least, is that depending on what I read, somewhere I read that the best skills should be some, somewhere else I read that they should be some others... And even when I read on different threads about the same skills being suggested, often the level of those skills vary and quite some..... For example, some suggest to bring Chivalry to like 60, some others to like 80, some even all the way up to 120 !! And that is only just an example, not to mention other skills....... Some say pick swords, others say fencing, others say macing......... Nothing is linear, it varies widely depending on what I read, and I find this confusing. How can I try to make some linear sense in all of the info so as to try build up a really effective PvM template ? Thanks.
