I've got a Legendary Armsman Samurai on Siege and it's all well and good, but I'm thinking of making a Sampire on Catskills, since i would lose all valuable items in a heartbeat on siege... therefore I was considering what new I could do with Thoron. A few days of messing around with my friend Ari on the Test Center are tempting me to play a mage... I do a lot fo solo PvM play and not much PvP, even on Siege... and it seems fun to do that as a mage, and even more fun to raise a Mage Tamer or Necro Mage with RoT instead of on a regular shard >_> . . . but I've heard that Blade Spirits and EVs are weaker than they are on other shards, which seems like it would hurt my soloing capabilities. So, how severe is this weakening of EVs? Would I be depressed about soloing anything worthwhile after putting 3 months into a Mage on Siege? How would Necro or Taming (or anything else) affect this?
