Meeskino, sounds good; yes said no trading r u willing to sell him? I hear u RE SK. I started w a ranger in 2004 and basically thats all I know but my son is starting from scratch (if SOE comes back) and based on what I hear about DPS, I am recommending he go w an SK but he's leaning toward necro.
i have 3 accounts, all active, not played bout 6 months tho. i had magician, sk and shammy as main team. not trading or selling any accounts tho
after 4 years afk, when i returned i made SK, cleric was main back then. started to like SK and i think its the best class in EQ
without SK, i wouldnt get past SoD i think. if anyone who would start EQ now, i would tell him SK and second best is mage
they are very very cool classes. compared to these two, cleric was booring and quite useless as u could use mercs, stupid as they are, but they do heal.
back in 2006 and before that i thought cleric was coolest class ever as i was able to solo anguish minis, AoW and many cool raid mobs no other class could solo. once dps went up, very up with SoF i think, cleric was made useless...well, useless compared to what it was before.
so, SK ftw!
