Hello all. I've been playing, on and off, for several years now but I'm still only about level 55. I've come to realize that my character is just completely not a good fit for me. I don't know if I just was a different person back then or what, but I can't comfortably RP Bair the way he is now.
So I'm considering a complete overhaul with reincarnation and class and everything, but I'm unsure where to go and what to do. I'm sticking in Gaudi because I love this city, but I don't want to be a faeling anymore (though I'll miss flying) and I no longer want to be a Bard, as I feel I can't do it justice in RP.
Several classes seem appealing to me, and more of a contemplative player, preferring to read, research, explore than PvP.
I've also very much not kept up with the changes to the game recently. I've come to grips with autocuring and path and the like, but there's so much more I've never delved into and... well... I'm just feeling lost.
I love the world, the lore, the people, but I'm floundering here and struggling for a reason to log in.
So... I'm seeking input. Right now, is any class/race/etc. stronger for my playstyle of questing/exploring/researching? I was thinking something in the mage or guardian realm, but I'm not sure if those are effective against denizens or more PvP focused... I also want to be more of a contributor along tradeskills, but my herbs are sadly not in great demand.
I guess I'm asking, to you knowledgeable folks, if you had the opportunity to start over right now, in my shoes, what would you do? Many opinions welcome.
Sorry for rambling, but thanks for reading.
