I picked up the game a few days ago, got a wizard to level 20 without too much effort, and wanted to learn more about all the various stats and skills options in the game, so came here to do some research. (Lots of customization options in-game but very little description, sadly)
Looking around the forums for an hour, it seems like there’s alot more to the game than I initially suspected, and I’d like to request a bit of help.
Reading around, it seems that while wizards are viable, warriors seem to be the easiest class to level and play at high levels, so for my first character, at least, I ditched the wizard, and would like to try a warrior.
At low levels, honestly, the warrior seems alot weaker than the wizard, but I assume that changes soon.
There’s many decent build, gear, and guide suggestions for high level warriors, once you hit level 99 (L200+) and start doing maps. However, I can’t really find much advice on how to allocate stats/points/gear on the grind up to level 99 (l200/maps).
Assuming I want to
- save (almost?) all my crystals until I begin to do maps and finalize my gearset for high level maps
- try to avoid spending alot of gold respeccing on the transition from l200 to maps
- don’t want to get ‘stuck’ on a particular level or boss for large amounts of time on the way to maps
What do I want to put my stat points and skill points into? All into HP for stats and whirlwind (then hp/luck) for talents? or divide evenly between hp/power? Something else? MP seems useless at later levels once you get blood magic, but can you level without any points in it? (Or will gold be so worthless by then that respec costs are inconsequential)
What gear do I want to be on the lookout for? Right now, at low levels, HP leech seems to trump pretty much anything else, at least until i (pretty quickly) run out of MP.
Any particular type of weapon/offhand I want to use/avoid? (eventually, I assume a whirlwind mainhand and a high dps offhand, but I assume whirlwind takes too much MP to spam at low levels)
Any advice would be appreciated.
TLDR version: Leveling a warrior from start-beginning Maps. What stats/talents should I use to get to endgame (Maps) efficiently, and what gear should I keep an eye out for?
