    Default looking for a mentor (returning after 3 years+)

    I could really use some one with alot of know how on this game, I just need to pick their brain about some ingame stuff and what resorces are uptodate ect. I dont want a hand holder just some one I can re learn the basics from that can keep me from super gimping my toons and to shed some light on the enhancement trees as they are 100% new to me. If some one has the time Ild be VERY greatful I came back with a group of friends looking for a new MMO and I pitched this one so I just wanna relearn the ins and outs so I can effectivly guide them we play on Wayfinder due to the decreased lag of the server ( on of my friends plays on an older system so a server hop really isnt an option and the DDO university is not active on Wayfinder) thanks alot and have a wonderful day.

    Asking your questions here, on the forum, will probably provide you with a wider and deeper range of legitimate advice. Presenting a list of questions may help focus your goals and save some time. I realize it lacks the personal touch, but you'll probably get more information that way. And having a guide in-game is always nice.

    Oh, and welcome back! I hope you enjoy it.

    Forgot to give the obligatory "links":

    Default Thanks guys

    I am on Wayfinder to answer the question on my server, and the preloader will help my friend alot thanks.

    Ive been digging alot on the wikki but it seems to be written more for the veteran DDO player.

    Basicly the run down I am looking for are things like


    1. what classes really need to splash

    2. What classes are viable as pures

    3.any advice for first plythroughs commonly missed by newbies.

    4. most balanced (carry my buddys through hard portions type) char.

    5. prioritys of lvling for the classes and as a toon as a whole. So some big open ended questions but these will really help on the basic concept I have to build off of all advice and opinions are welcome.

    Thansk much

    on an added note I am VIP and will keep it for the suration of the time I play, I figure it gives me entertainment I can help keep it going :-) so im not sure if that will play into this at all, I also may be getting 2 of them vip on a month to month basis and was wondering if there is a way to do it month to month and not 3 months at a time.

    Thanks

    Take a look at the link in my signature for some good reading on some of the best builds in the game since the New Enhancements where released. Lots of good ideas in there.

    Most of the players on Wayfinder are very friendly and will help you if you have any questions. But it's easier to get help if you ask them directly instead of using one of the public chat channels, as the channels are nearly never used and therefore nearly never read too.

    I'll be on in about 10 minutes (Erzmagier) but you can also ask someone from Haus Feuerfuchs or Hunters of Wayfinder or House Cayanmedin or Teaparty of Teabags to get advice or a guild invite. The invite would be better as there are more people online who could help.

    Default Im actualy on the forum ar work

    The issue with a guild invite is we all have alot of alts trying to find what best suits our play style (and im evolving round all of them because I'll play pretty much anything but a caster)

    Default are predetermined paths viable

    I know they would not be optimal but would they be doable for a first play through before TRing andbuilding it out to full potential ?

    No. Definitely do not use the predetermined paths. They're pretty aweful. The developers should really improve these. Anyways, just have your friends think about what kind of character they want to play, and not what the flavor of the month build is. If you build a decent character, most builds can work for most of the game (except possibly epic elites, but then you can TR later on if/when thats important), then you can ask for build advice here or in the class forums.

    On out first play through i doubt well do any of the real ingame stuff call it a a full game tutorial lol I think only a couple of us are trying to build out out own toons, Im trying to figure ou the best way to survive as a pure DPS barb currently casters are crushing me ..... and Im wanting to roll a monk/cleric as an off healing DPS but havent figure out exactly how to make it work so any input on these would be great ...... the other guy whos doing his own is running a rouge which i ran back when i played the last time I ran it Dex/int which still seems viable so him I can guide through the basics but I am lost once it gets to enhancements and the like
