Hey all. I stopped playing AO about 7 years ago and have decided to give it another go around since it still seems to be active enough and I am completely bored with everything else. Back when I used to play I was never really into endgame raiding content at all and my highest level character (by choice) was a 210 Shade. I played for the amazing in depth character building pvp. I played to see just how much I could push my toons to the limit in twinking and lower level pvp mostly. This go around I have decided I want to push to full on endgame content and finally see everything in the game I never did before.
All of that being said. I’m having a lot of trouble deciding what character I want to play through to end game. I absolutely loved playing my shade back in the day in pve. It was just about the only character I ever played that I enjoyed in pve other than an MA. I know that back then shade was definitely not a great choice for a starting character and am not sure if that still holds true today? I also enjoy pet characters for pve content, MP, Engi, Crat and would love some input on their current states? I have forgotten so much about this game, but really look forward to digging back in and making it all the way through to endgame content this time. Any advice and knowledge you guys can drop on me would be a huge help.
Edit: I suppose I should add that this is a fresh account as I don’t even remember the e-mail address I had linked to my old account and have gotten no help in recovering it. I do have a paid sub and all expansions though.
