I'm an IRE fanboy looking to branch out into another game. I've dabbled across all five, but haven't touched Lusty for years! When I fired up a new toon yesterday I was (pleasantly) bowled over by the number of chargen choices, got myself all flustered, poured a double whiskey and logged out again. SO, any help at all with making the correct race/city-or-commune/guild choice, within the following parameters would be very well-received:
1) I'm interested in the concept of a dark hero, so I think (correct me if wrong!) that would rule out Celeste, unless Celeste would tolerate a bad guy, perhaps following an arc of noble cause corruption
2) My main interests would either be PvP (a class that doesn't depend too heavily on arties to reach upper-mid-tier would be beneficial) or trade. If a class can do both fairly well, that'd be awesome, if not, more than happy to go either-or
3) I'm also on UK time (GMT), so would rather avoid a city/commune where I'm going to be the only person awake between the hours of, say 1900 and 0000, but I'd imagine that with a playerbase Lusty's size that won't be a problem
4) Finally, I'd really love to play a race that interacts with my specialisation. I seem to remember that I was once transformed into a special type of faeling when I learned a certain skillset, but it's a bit fuzzy. Somebody did answer this question last (so apologies for asking it again), but frankly by that time my brains were scrambled eggs. This criteria is less important than the others, but it would be nice.
So far I'm really leaning towards choosing a faeling or an elfen in Harbingers or Blacktalon (if I'm correct in thinking that's the Glomdoring druid guild?), but please swamp me with whatever advice you think is helpful
As I say, I'm not an IRE noob, but things here are really quite different to what I'm used to.
Edit: After reading Qistrel's post in another thread about each city/commune's RP, I think I can safely narrow it down to Glomdoring, Hallifax or Gaudiguch.
