I know you can build your character using 2 different weapon sets (down from 3 a year ago) but what role are you thinking of as a primary role you are currently thinking about?

(Here's a Quick Reminder of the Current Weapon Types)

2H Weapons - Bows, War Hammers, Muskets, Spears
1H Weapons - Swords, Hatchets, Rapiers
Magic Weapons - Life Staves, Fire Staves, Ice Gauntlets

I did DPS, but I am going to be a little of dps and some healing. Going to be in/focus/con build. With repair, gauntlets, life staff and fire staff builds.

I went with DPS, but I likely won't be pure DPS. My interest will likely be pvp more than pve, though I will do some of both types of content. I am stuck between two class types. One is a pure mage (fire staff+something else mage type), and the other is a dps/tank (hatchet/sword+shield). I will try both during the closed beta (will only do light play) to figure out what works for me.

I'm really torn on what to choose. During Alpha, I seemed to default into sword/shield + life staff. I did make the fire staff eventually, but didn't get to level it up much. I enjoyed the rapier when it came out, too, but I'm terrible at evading hits. My armor/weapons took massive amounts of damage lol.

I'm leaning towards a healer build since I'll have Squishy always available to hunt with, but I haven't decided on the secondary weapon yet.

Healer. Although I understand leveling a healer without being in a group is challenging. Maybe I'll take a hatchet or rapier as secondary weapon so I can get in on some of the damage goodness.

Atm just DPS with Fire Staff and no secondary. I will try a lot of weapons in the Beta and see if the secondary really makes a difference but I imagine my build like heavy chest armor and other light/ medium pieces BUT staying in the light set bonus for that sweet +20% damage. Intelligence + Constitution socket gems and oc Fire Staff. Attribute points will go to intelligence alone, Don't feel the need to get the bonus from gathering. Since I will be getting constitution from the armor bonus I will try sword and shield in case I need to step up as tank for some reason. Anyway, let's see how it goes :joy:

Bought this game, probably will start as a "tank" considering it sounds like its simple to change around for solo, or mix things up.

I was late to the beta and ended up with a rapier and a bow. I figured it didn't matter much since it was a beta and I was soloing all the time. It seems that the meta is Life Staff.

I don't know if anyone has mentioned this before but please be aware that on weapons that have two "based on" stats, they provide different levels of Oomph.

Anything that takes Strength or Dexterity, gets a considerable bit more power out of the Strength side than the dex. I've tested this out myself and can verify it is a significant difference.

I was originally going to go Musket/Hatchet with all of my points in Dexterity. I then switched everything to Strength instead, bought all new faction armor that was Str/Con for level 25 and man, it made a VERY BIG difference in the damage out put of my hatchet.

It has since convinced me to go all Strength with Hatchet as primary and either Great Axe or Great Hammer as the secondary as situation requires. This is kinda nice as I can also pick up Sword/Board to tank as needed since I'm going heavy plate.

TLDR: Putting all your points in Strength gives more damage boost to Str/Dex weapons than all ponts in Dex will.

Hallo, thinking of joining everyone for this launch, and probably Musket/Spear or Great Axe/Life Staff. I'm terrible at deciding so who knows.

I've been playing around with quite a few things during this BETA round. I think I'm probably going great axe/musket or great axe/ice gauntlets...which sounds weird but hear me out...gravity well - ice CC? I dunno, sounds fun lol

Hey all,

Hoping to join you at launch and played Life Staff/Hatchet on the previous Beta. Will probably stick with healer unless there is a severe shortage of tanks, but I haven't tried tanking yet.

Didn't get to play much during OB, but still planning to go with a tank/paladin build for now. Will see how it goes after we go live.

Thinking of Spear/Life Staff game looks interesting, more so than any that have come out recently. Haven't played any of the beta's, so this game will be completely fresh for me

I am going sword and board. More on the dps side initially and then tank for end game. Super excited to get back into an MMO. Been a VERY long time for me. I have retired from work, so i am going to NO LIFE New World.
