A bit of build advice if I may! One of the things I’m really struggling with being back in the system after such a long time out is what to expect at higher levels and therefore how to build.

My main is going a fairly traditional route – warrior / warrior priest / wizard of some kind and I’d really like your assistance on where to take him from here.

Where I stand now is as follows:

Started warrior - L/N alignment
Guilds - Shadow Legion, In Purity and KOTL
Took the following specialists
Enhanced reflexes
Weapon mastery mace
War cry

With guild benefits and wearing chainmail, this gets me to Max AC 12 and AC 12.

Then in order, I’ve taken:

Ability Points Total
Rebirth 10 10
1st Grade strength 70 80
Enhanced Reflexes +2 40 120
Max AC +1 20 140
Max AC in Master Crafted 15 155
Level 1 Warrior Priest 200 355
2nd Grade strength 80 435
Warrior specialist - stamina 40 475
Well supplied potions 20 495
Immunity accuracy in PAC 60 555
9th lvl resistance to spirits & magic 100 655
1st resistance to TOD 50 705

I’m currently sitting on 1114 points so 409 points to spend (was planning to take Warrior Priest to 3rd) but would really appreciate your input and
how you would then take this character to at least 3K and if you have the time, to 5K. This way, I can rely on your experience to build so I can just concentrate on
learning the game and having fun!

Appreciate that’s a bit of work but if anyone can help, it would be greatly appreciated

Cheers

Ben

Knowing you play as a “fighty” character there are some obvious choices

1. Max out to your life cap using stamina’s, statuses and life items
2. Think about resistances - boring but being dead is more dull. One to spirit bolt and causing. 1/2 red. Level drain, poison, disease.
3. Finally, AC12 is okay for a bit but you will be cut to pieces on a max 3k when facing 3 monsters doing quin in E. Consider Benediction spehere via priest as a second choice. As a 1st class warrior you should either consider enhanced shield mastery, counter / contra mastery or some other numerical reduction.
4. Finish going priest and buy some innate total heals. Best solution to damage in the game

I'd get in counter and contra mastery and maybe lesser contra as well.

Then flick of the wrist and daring deed - 160 its to have some inmates every so often is very good.

You might want to think about getting your multi race started to plug some gaps.

The in purity status is pretty good.

or finally either get as many war cries as possible or just suck it up and buy some immunities.

then 1500 to 3k - finish warrior priest buy more power and innate totals, more resistances, bit more multi race..

Going to keep watch on this. I have a habit of starting new characters and my highest is nearly 700 points. I only use the non phys rep pac 3 armour. I may need to rethink that strategy!

As you monster a lot, I think, get an item of 2 Mac and sac, as a tank you're likely to be a target for ranged fx, immune to loc shot seems v handy these days

Get a numerical damage reduction and some of table 3.

I think you can stay at 6th lvl priest for quite a while and just buy extra spirits, some innates and some of the priestly immunities/resistances.
