I am a new player. I got the game some time ago but never actually started to play it.
I am planning on starting this "adventure", and I tried to read after what class and what race should I start, but... there are all kinds of information out there, many of which are outdated I think.
So I always liked close combat characters in MMOs (so not ranged characters.).
And I am planning on doing SOLO playing first (while leveling up, etc), later I would like to do some dungeons, but remaining a casual player.
So, from the races, I really like Imperial and Dark Elf look-wise. I know the Imperial is a separate purchase, but still.
So, in the past, people said that the Imparial is the best tank, and if you play it, it has to be a tank. Because it just good at that.
But later on, I read something about, there was a "race nerf" thing, and race actually doesn't matter now at all...
So I do not know what is the truth in 2021 with races and classes.
All I know, is that I would like to get a race-class combo, which is good at DPS (and self-heal obviously). - I do not know how important is self heal now with COMPANION SYSTEM??
And I would favor a class, which is a close-combat character. So I like, when my character deals damage with weapons, or some close-combat spells / heals itself.
But I am not a fan of bows for example or ranged spell casting.
So in World of Warcraft back in the day, I liked Paladin for example, which was a close-combat melee guy, with some spell casting/healing.
But I also liked Rogue, Warrior, DK, etc..
Now, from the 6 classes, I like the "idea" of a Necromancer, because it is just cool. Raising the dead and everything, but that sounds like a ranged spell caster class (is it?).
So anyway, since I have no clue about anything, I just want to get your help on what You guys think I should start playing with as my first main character.
Imperial/Dark Elf, and with which class or classes.
I wrote down what I would like to play and how, but I do not know which would be a good combo and a good class overall for that "job".
Thanks for everyone in advance, who takes the time to read this post and write an opinion/suggestion.
There are no WRONG opinions! I am excited to see what you guys would recommend based on my writing.
Have a nice day everyone!
