Hi folks, I am looking for a build that has nice DPS capabilities in the earlier game (first 8-12 levels). If it is effective sometime later that's a nice boon, but chances are that I will not have the patience to go much further. Maybe I never had that patience to go far because the chars were not effective early on...
I don't have 32 pt, Arti, Fvs, Druid, Warforged, Half-Ork, I do however have access to Half-Elf and Monk(though I learned too late that they are not good with 28). The only Adventure packs I have are Catacombs, Sharn and the Devil Assault/Chronoscope pack. Don't judge me, I know that I know nothing.
If possible, it should be able to both kill trash and deal heavy DPS to bosses, if not, it should ar least be able to get rid of the trash.
What I thought about? Well, from all my tries I think Arcane casters are my favorite. The Idea is to kill everything before it can harm me, or before it harms the tank (if I have one) more than the healer (if we have one) can heal. My personal Idea would be a Pale Master, as the death aura keeps melee enemies (like most kobolds) from becoming problematic and allows me to heal a little (I know that the zombie form is not that great but at least I can upkeep myself). Alternatively I could stay Human (or elven or whatever) form and let the healer take care of me, while still using death aura to keep the melee trash away.
Simultaneously I have single-target spells that heavily damage that single target or kills them.
This was my idea, but I welcome any other approach that sounds good.
