Okay I used to play years ago and just recently returned. Long ago it seemed everyone said staying pure was best though I almost always MCed. The thing is most players have tons of past lives which allow them to MC without loss of DC. I find most MC builds even in first life characters are more survivable, however I have not played much high level content.
Should I just work on getting past lives? Is it hard to TR without paying tons of cash which I tend to do anyway in the DDO store?
Should I work on getting to Level 28 and just farm for gear for next lives and craft?
One thing I really noticed is they love to stuff your bank with things that could be very useful someday that is bound to character. Everything you look at you are like dang...I hate to throw this away but I really need questing gear :/. Sorry had to put a small complaint out there. Account is one thing bound to character is just wrong.
