Hiho! I'm Jahz and I'm new to this forum and PoE. I have to start with - "Sorry for my english", couse it can suck at times.
Okay, now before I post my question I need to give you guys some background:
I haven't played a lot of old-style cRPG games. Only a few quite a long time ago already and tbh I never was a smart man, more of a straighforward one so I need some help from you guys. By not being smart I mean - I suck at micromanagement of my characters and figuring out good tacticks to use, so I'm probably going for normal difficulty and I'm not realy looking for MIN/MAXing my character, I prefer a little more balanced one.
Mainly I have problem with deciding which class to start playing with, which race would be best for it and some build examples or tips for building my beloved avatar.
Let's start with my playstyle: I love playing a melee characters, with some mix of magic added to them and optional ranged in some situations. As for weapons I go mostly for 2handed swords and scythes (which are not included in this game if I'm right ). I also have an affinity for animals and nature. As for the last part I prefer being a DPS class with some light/medium armor options. Mostly light one probably.
So now we can easily limit our class choices to:
- cipher - becouse it would be best fit for melee/magic style I think
- ranger - has a combat pet, duuuh~ xD
- druid - with this one I would be leaning more towards some kind of shapeshifter focused build.
- if there is a class I missed out by accident then please add it in your post too!
And now - could you guys tell me, which one would be best for a beginner and my playstyle?
How to build my character up? Which skills to take, talents, attributes etc?
Should I micromanage my NPC companions too? Or is their auto level system pretty good?
Which race would be a best pick for those classes (I was mostly looking at the Orlan, Godlike or Elf race)?
I hope you all can push me in the right direction to make that first run of mine a great experience!
