I was looking into being either a tank of some flavor (Not sure if paladin or fighter.) or some variety of shintao monk. But ever poring over the forums looking for a new character guide I just became overwhelmed at the sheer amount of guides that so casually just state "You need 36 points and +2 tomes"
I havn't even a single idea how to build even after playing so many 3.5 rule based games because of how alien everything in DDO is by comparison. And how generally competitive the enviornment is. And it's just become overwhelming to the point where I freeze up on the character creation screen unable to even play with anything after three days of having the game installed.
Is there a way to build as a fresh character and be useful and productive? Or will I be a leper doomed to solo even with the most min-max heavy build
