Character Build can be Fun and Interesting
Online games vary differently when...
Ok I realize you may not be sure what character best fits your play style, and this part of the character build is probably the most important, because its what everything else balances on. So here are a few questions to ask yourself;
Do I want to fight? Or do I want to help those who fight through other means?
If you chose fight, a tank, rouge, or caster may be the character for you. If you chose to help then a healer or caster may be your character of choice.
When fighting I would rather fight up close or from far away?
Up close characters are mainly Tanks and some rouges. If far away your choice's are casters and some rouges. Healers try to avoid combat unless you are making a character build to do that.
What do I like more weapons or magic?
Every character carries a weapon, but to use one effectively you need to be a tank or rouge. Magic on the other hand is mostly used by those who are not effective with weapons and they usually are casters and healers.
Do I want to group more or solo more?
If you like to group with people and have them want to group with you your best bet is the healer. Getting a group usually goes in this order healer, caster, tank, and lastly the rouge. Soloing is a different matter you will need to learn your character very well once you do any character can solo but the one that is easiest to learn on is the Tank. Character soloing from easiest to hardest is as follows tank, caster, rouge, and of course the healer.
There are other types of characters that are mixtures of the main types that are called hybrid characters. When deciding on those you need to decide which part of that character your going to focus more on, magic or weapons.
You could just ask your self questions all day and never come to a answer. The ones above just give you a good chance of figuring out what you might like. Remember you can always test out a character, and if you do not like it make a different one, until you find the one you like.
Lets continue on with the character build since you now know what profession you want to be.
A caster would need stats in whatever it is that helps you get more magic points, makes you cast faster, and increases the damage of magic, and of course extra health points is always useful.
A tank you would want stats in whatever makes him do more damage, helps him defensively like blocking, and of course they need lots of health points.
A rouge would need stats in whatever would allow him to be more defensive, like able to evade a attack, attack faster, and of course more health points.
A healer would need stats in whatever allows them to heal better, cast faster, have more magic power, and you guessed it more health points.
Don't forget to put your character build to paper that way when you add the other builds to it you can see the complete build.
That way if you ever decide to change it, tweak it, or some how lose part of your gear you can easily see what needs to be changed, or fixed.
