I just created a new character on the NA server.

I'm wondering which "template"/skills I should work on first for PvM'ing.

Also what race should I be in relation to trade, profits and relative location to mob spawn.

since upcomming expansion i would think maxing your archery will be first step. also get high mastery in any 2h weapon. 2h sword and polearm is most used i belive.

or focus on one agic school....fire is the school of dmg for example. on the other hand necro is cool because the spells are invisible. Things you need are

-Health Points
-Mana/Stamina,Stamina/Health,Health/Mana (Lesser Magic)
-Launch(Lesser Magic)
-Witches Brew (Witchcraft Rank 75)
-close/range combat abilitys(for example 2 GreatAxe and fire Magic or 2h Sword and Archery)

Focus on archery and get sharpshooter to 50+ this is ur PVE tool and if u can actually aim your main pvp tool after expansion, and go either greatsword or polearms. once u have enough gold/regs stocked up start training up your greater magic ( should skill LM while killing mobs heal self etc)

I thought the best spec in the game was max everything since, there is no skill cap and never will be.

than you fail. grab what you like specialise is ( this means also the stats). you cant use everything in the same time...

Its simple really, just max out every skill that is available to you. If this sounds hard, remember that things are easier now than they were when people could exploit thier skills to max.

The first 3 goals you should set yourself are

-raise a 2handed weapon skill to 75...lets you buy mastery

-raise archery to 75...lets you buy sharpshooter

-raise Greater Magic to 25...lets you buy Witchcraft (for best heal in game)


There is a lot more you need to do before you start becoming competitive but starting with those 3 things will always be useful and they are easy enough to achieve.

I accept with information:The first 3 goals you should set yourself are: raise a 2handed weapon skill to 75...lets you buy mastery; raise archery to 75...lets you buy sharpshooter; raise Greater Magic to 25...lets you buy Witchcraft.
