I'm returning to the game after like 7-8 years or so. So I'm having trouble remembering much of anything. Of course there also wasn't Bushido back then, so looking around at common templates I'm looking at making a typical sort of swordsman/bushido/chivalry character. I'm confused on some points though, for example: should I be using a shield, dual wielding.... man I'm lost. It's like I'm a brand new player all over again. Should I be picking up Bushido AND Parrying? So far I'm just looking at PVM, trying to get on my feet, get money for gear, house, and money to build a tradeskill alt. So right now I'm looking at Swordsmanship, Tactics, Bushido, Chiv, Healing, Anatomy, Focus, and Parrying... so that's a pretty crowded template... I'm not sure what I should sacrifice... Also, can anyone remind me of some good crafted newbie armor and weapons to pick up? I'm on Napa Valley, perhaps if you have a vendor, point me in the right direction? Thanks! Thanks for any and all advice!
