Well, I've been back about a month after a 5 year absence. I've spent my time, for the most part, working on my house, and training skills up on my old characters. My problem is... I don't know how to OUTFIT my characters. I don't know what's best for PVM... I've heard all this Sampire and Mystic Mage stuff, and I've looked into it, but it all seems so... Item based and skill based (and I don't mean character skill, I mean player skill). Can someone just break down a simple PVM toon that's idiot proof? A gold maker? I don't expect to stand toe-to-toe with peerless monsters or solo champ spawns... I just want to get out there and do things. I have a treasure hunter tamer, but I'm training skills (87...oy). I have an archer/fisher, but it's not a bread winner, though fun (except for all the sailing). I have a basic mule. I have a thief in flux (working various skills - mostly a RP toon). As for arties... I have quite a few, actually, mostly mage related but some warrior-ish ones. I'm just looking for suggestions for a toon I can log into, go out, farm for a couple hours to work out frustrations, and then switch off. I'm a vet account, 720, my gold reserves are...low...like 2m. So, bear that in mind, lol. Thanks for help/suggestions!
