A few people on here might know my main, Pealea. She was my first toon on DDO when I started playing a year ago, and I've been playing through different classes on her ever since. Right now I'm a little under a million experience away from hitting level 20 on my Druid life, and I'm starting to think about what I'll TR into next. Here is the list of lives I've already gone through in the order that I've taken them:
Wizard, wizard, cleric, sorcerer, bard, favored soul, rogue, and Druid.
I'm about ready to start my melee lives. I'm not really confident playing melee toons, but I'd like to go ahead and get them over with so that I can save the rest of the specialists for late in my completionist order. Also, up to this point, I've run all of my lives on that toon as pure classes. A guildy of mine earned his pure completionist about a month ago, and I'm determined to do the same.
So, which melee life should I start off with? I'm tempted to get my 10 hp and go barbarian, but the self sufficientcy of pally is kind of appealing, too. I've also heard that monks are a fun introduction to melee classes. Then I start thinking about how having a fighter might be nice, too. I'm not sure.
A few other minor details:
I started in the angelic destiny and have been making my way across the board from left to right. I'm currently about half way through grandmaster of flowers, but I'm thinking about hanging out in epic levels long enough to cap it out before I TR.
I have black/blue/white medium dragonscale armor, a sword of shadow, healing amp dragontouched robes, and some pretty decent raid gear. That being said, I'd rather my build not be so gear dependent. I tend to misplace things and forget to put them on when I'm at the right level.
