Hi. I'm new to DDO. In fact, other than playing lots of KOTOR and KOTOR II, I only know the basics of classic tabletop Dungeons and Dragons. I'm trying to get the hang of the game, understand the stats, the abilities, so forth.
Right now, I have a Level 2 Fighter. I'm not sure how long I'll keep ~my first character~ since I'm getting the hang of the game and am pretty much bound to have made an unforeseen mistake when making this guy. What I want to do, since I'm going to end up deleting this character eventually (it's not a question of "if", but "when"), I want to get as much out of it as I can.
When I reach Level 3, I plan to take two levels of Rogue, to get the Evasion skill (lots of resources on multiclassing that I found really love two levels of rogue JUST for this skill). Then, Once I hit level 5, one level of Barbarian for the speed boost (although the speed boost might be more ineffectual than I'm thinking, and it's not even worth it).
Either 2 levels of Rogue and 1 level of Barbarian, OR 1 level of Barbarian and 2 levels of Rogue. Either way, at Level 5, my class will be Fighter Level 2, Barbarian Level 1, and Rogue Level 2. After that, leveling up as a Fighter exclusively until I've gotten the hang of the game and delete this experimental character.
Any advice? Experiences of how awesome a Level 20 Fighter is? Current Barbarians who can tell me how effective the speed boost actually is? Multiclassing experts who can tell me what's wrong with this build, or what levels other than 3, 4, and 5 to do it at?
