Every build on the forums seems to be defiler-only, and no build plans on building a soul hunter and THEN a defiler. 1 point in obsolete low lvl skills looks fine as a high level, but at lower levels, I assume they help a heck of a lot more when actually skilled.
From what I've seen around these forums, a lot of things have changed about builds. So, using one of the two popular skill calculators, I've decided to make my defiler again and run it by you guys, who are more familiar with the new mechanics.
Keep in mind, this build is from level 1 to 79 on a fresh character, so I'm not skipping out on lower level skills which would help make leveling a heck of a lot easier (following the old pattern of getting most skills, even summons, at level 1-55, then resetting at 55, in this case, lvl 60). I suppose you could say buying a skill reset is an option for later levels (which I'm assuming are grossly overpriced, with the merge) to focus on more important things earlier, but for now, I'm keeping it short-term.
This is just a rough draft and can be changed, and I haven't put any thought into DNA, yet, so suggestions are welcome. So, is it worth skilling lower level skills like blood arrow and rake nail, because they'll make leveling a lot easier, or just put 1 point into them and grind away?
A few questions:
1. How pricey are skill/DNA resets on S1?
2. How much are costumes on S1? I remember they used to be quite cheap, and now I'm not so sure.
3. If I were to keep my current Defiler at level 55 and not start a new one, is there any advice on a build plan (now that my skills have been reset)? How about this one? skill-calculator: Defiler
