    I just reactived my account after 3 years.
    And for the last yeah I had my account I wasnt really playing that much.

    I got the new SA client and Iam kinda surprised how well it works... back when I played I would never have thought I would use anything but the 2d client.

    Now I have a few question about all the new skills that are in the game.

    For my melee chars it seems that there are 3 new skills:
    Bushido, Ninjitsu and Chivalry
    Do I need any of these to kill high lvl monsters?

    My current skills on my dexer is: (Aprox)
    - Fencing - 104/110
    - Tactics - 103/110
    - Anatomy - 106/110
    - Healing 109/120
    - Spell resist 99/110
    - Parrying 105/110

    Which of the 3 new skills would be good here if any? And are any of my current skills obsolete?

    I got some soulstones, so I can move some skills arround on my chars.

    Thanks in advance

  2. First welcome back. So how old is the account? For every year up to four years you get 5 points towards skills, [its is a Vet reward that is given to the account every year], So if your are a 4 year vet [account age] then you could go as high as 720 in skill points. Looking at you current skills you might like to give Chivalry a try for that character.

    Now looking at the power scroll side of your current skills you top at 670 in total skills. if you are a four yr vet you could have 50 pts going to Chivalry and then wear some jewerly to push it higher to where you can use all the spells a paladin can and not fail. Given the right equipment, you could kick butt and take names with most monsters and should do well in PvP.

    As for the other two skills, really not my bag, you will have to ask others what they may think of using them with your current template.

    they are all good just depends on how you play and if you are strictly pvm
    if my math is correct that adds to 670 with a 720 skill cap that leaves you 50 points
    I would drop heal to 100 add the extra points to chiv giving you 70 chiv wich is enough to be very very usfull then I might think about droping parry and taking bushido or leave it as it is but with honor foe bushido and lightning strike can do awesome damage again just depend on how you play.. I am sure others will give you more ideas
