Just returned to the game and my old account is on a very underpopulated server. Rather than abandon it or pay cash to move a toon or two--I think i may opt to build a new set of toons on a more populated server. So--I have read many of you and I appreciate your theory crafting; how would you start a sampire on a new server--with no support either financial or from support class toons such as artisans/miner/blacksmith? Example: -Start a Samurai, then add necro etc. What would you lock out(skills) first, how would you build it for both time and PvM efficiency ( not ready for PvP just yet) or? My point here, I see alot of good ideas for folks who have mature accounts, but nothing that takes it from square 1 to success ( or perhaps I did not go back in the pages far enough) What would be your final suit ( is that what we call the skill sets now?)--you target goal as it were? I admnit I like the idea and the challenge of building this from scratch--but I am not too proud to ask for help from you experienced folks. If it makes it easier for you, assume I must learn just about everything from 2003 forward, so please do not assume any knowledge of expansions after 2003( although if you tell me what you are talking about I will do the research-no fear there) I also bought the SA edition this time--so the basic tools should be there. Thank you, fellow warriors, for your help.
