Ok so I've been away from iRO for a long, long time. Recently i've had the itch to start playing again and since my main has always been a priest (though almost entirely FS) I am looking at perhaps playing him again. Since no one i know still plays I am curious how accurate this guide is and how well it would perform as a solo build as I am going to be honest here and probably be solo'ing the VAST majority of my play time. ( I still have the free reset which i just used and haven't touched stats/skills yet as I am looking for an up to date build).
I have a good chunk of change to work with but with no further income in the forseeable future so I am looking for some help in getting some intermediate gear to start this up. FWIW I probably have no ME gear but my FS gear is relatively decent (nothing outstanding that i can think of however, just incase maybe theres some pieces i might be able to mix in).
My AB is currrently 104/13ish.
Is it worth the z investment to start this up? (given my life now would make me stay pretty casual at best) I am not really interested in PvP/ WoE so I would want a build/gear devoted entirely to PvM.
I guess I should mention that my brother MAY end up playing once in awhile and I would like to group with him (either warlock or maestro). From what i understand this spec seems to do relatively decent at supporting as well, but seems to have good solo'ing ability opposed to a FS build which is why I am mainly interested in doing ME over FS currently.
I am also curious how you guys deal with gemstones. How cost effective is it? Do you guys pick up everything to fund your gemstones? Do you park some kinda loot slave to take your stuff or do you wing back after ur over 50%, w/e?
Also I currently have a single account so no like extra buff slaves, etc (if you even need one)
Sorry I am kinda all over the place with this post and thank you to any assistance in this endeavor.
