Apology: I originally posted this in Custom but realized there is a Classes forums ( i thought it had to go in one of the categories, what i get for not looking)
I just got my Artificer to 20, (8-16 from stone) and have played a few characters 1-10 but playing the later levels as my artificer i realize that I really dont know alot about these quests, and would like to TR to a class that would get invites steadily so i can learn them.
I was thinking cleric would fit nicely, i was thinking a cleric/monk, since it seems fun and keeps with being able to be a cleric.
Questions on Cleric:
Would this be a good option for a born again player?
I read that you should only splash 3 monk if you are melee, why is this? can a 17/3 still main heal later content?
I understand that with a 3 splash i wouldnt be able to be an offensive caster, I can live with that, but could i melee/heal? (understanding that some quests/situations i wont be able to do both at the same time)
Bard was my other thought, as it is very versatile and would be able to get invites.
Questions on Bard:
Is it a good option for a born again player?
Will it get invites like a cleric?
my issue with bard is i would want to melee (which from my understanding would take warchanter) and crowd control ( which takes Virtuoso?) is there a build that would meet both my needs?
I am open to other options but it would have to be something i can get into groups with so would be needed/wanted and something that isnt relied on to know the maps well like a trapper.
