being gone since 6 months after release. Yes I know there will be just maintenance not significant new content but I enjoy leveling and relearning the world and can probably go a year just getting various classes and races up to maximum level without worrying about exhausting all the high level content there is now. Granted population is likely to shrink but lower population also means tighter communities.
Created one of each archtype to have one of each race and will bum around fairly slowly relearning the game. Conqueror, Priest of Mitra, Assassin and Necromancer. I prefer ranged combat to melee and went for that where I could. I was never great at combat requiring fast reflexes for combinations and each year I get worse. But getting older sure beats the alternative.
This post is mostly just to say hello - as an old school carebear I'm on Crom. If anyone feels my choice of classes is questionable I will welcome suggestions - all four are now level 1 so no great investment. For example if assassin is significantly more reflex-based than barbarian and a bad choice for an older, slower player. Or if necromancer ...what is the slang these days ....sucks. The character creation page didn't give much basis for choosing between that and demonologist. Both looked pretty ...evil (not a plus) and both seem to have pets but I am well aware that in this mythos the mage classes ARE somewhat evil it rather goes with the territory.
Anyway <waves left hand> hello all.
