Hey Everyone! Recently downloaded and fell in love with DDO. After fiddling around a bit, I'd love some advice on making a decent attempt at my first 'real' character.
The role of support/crowd control has always been appealing and I'd love to see if it can work in DDO. I love the idea of locking down enemies, debuffing, and indirect support. I'm open to a 'healing build' but trying to stay away from it, subtlety is more my style. It seems like Enchantment is a good tree to take a gander at, though I hear it hard-holds aren't as effective later on or against bosses.
Class-wise, Sorcerer seems like a hoot, though Wizard is probably better suited for what I'm after since the advanced class options are a bit more broad than the "elementalist" options the Sorcerer has.
So here are my questions, though feel free to add on any info! I'm a bit new, so I'm not 100% sure I even know what to ask
1. Is a CC/Support char even worth rolling or is that spec useless/unwanted versus just being a traditional healer/DPS?
2. Which spells generally perform well, are sought-after in groups, and will help me be an asset rather than a liability?
3. Are there any guides sitting around I might leverage? Many of the forum links from Google seem to be broken. :-/
Thanks so much!
