i'm gonna sign up for the free trial soon. can't figure out how i plan to play this game. my first challenge is figuring out what job i want to play. it's either paladin or summoner. i enjoyed tanking in wow. there is something about being the tough guy that goes toe to toe with bosses that appeals to me. quick dungeon finder is nice too. on the other hand i do enjoy pet classes. i think the egi's are cool and the journey to capture them sounds like fun. i'm sure they are the best solo class as well. my concern with the summoner is i'm not sure how useful the egi's really are. i'm sure my DPS will be better and i'm wondering if they basically just auto attack except for a few abilities or if there is alot of interaction with them? my concern with the paladin is i hear lots of people saying the warrior is the best tank. i know they all have different strengths but it's overwhelming how many people consider the warrior to be better. my other concern is the paladins DPS. i know it won't be like the casters but again i hear the warrior DPS can be like the casters. this worries me for solo play cause i can imagine it taking forever to clear solo content if my DPS is weak and alot of my abilities are meant for group mitigation.
the other thing i have to figure out is if i want to make 1 or multiple characters. i know 1 character can do all jobs. it just seems kinda boring to have all my jobs have the same race. i would like my caster to be the little guys, the paladin human, warrior the big guys, etc. so my options are 1 character and fantasia potions or multiple characters. i know you get 1 fantasia potion for free but i can't find the price on them if i decide to purchase them. i've never used any paid character services in wow i always made a new character and PVP / dungeon my way to max level. but i hear this game is mostly story driven so i'm assuming it won't work like that. what i'm wondering is how long will it take to get through the story on additional characters and if it will be something i might enjoy going through again or if it will feel like a chore. i also noticed there are two different monthly fee's one character per server for $13 and multiple characters per server for $15. naturally i would rather pay $13 and i'm wondering how inconvenient it will be to have my characters spread across multiple servers.
thanks for the advice.
