necro unless you just want pure plat drops (ie, seafurries/HG's) then mage.

i was thinking necro and ya more specificly in the low lvl range... =P

but mages can summon those magic bags of fine steel holding =P plus there uber melee pets can probably thrash mobs faster then a necro's especially green cons

^^this.

mages dont need to control 6 furies when they can keep the whole spawn dead.

bard.

Seaweedpimp meant 'kill' 6 furries at a time, not just engage them and have them drop eventually either from old age or accidently aggroing a mage pet.

i think he was joking. being able to kill more mobs at once does not equal best platfarmer.

ugh, no more necros and mages, please.

solo classes really aren't that different from 2-boxers.

I can down all 6 easily enough, and not by swarm kiting.

lol i hear ya, dont worry i'm actually gonna roll an iksar warrior, just waiting for kunark now P but since i'm bored in the meantime i figured ide bumb around on a backup toon for those really baaad nights were i'm bored and lonely and no one wants to play, and if it is bad enough i'll just twink him P with... a MAGE! i figure i can bring home the bacon without being lvl 50 and farming gems/fbss off mobs... why mage because - if i can get to 20+ theres tons of low con mobs i can just thrash fast for vendor loot with a pet, 30+ opens up even more, faster you can kill better money you make...

You can not farm FBSS with a Mage unless you inherit an already broken camp. You can not break the spawn by yourself.

but see thats what i'm talking about - not farming items

anyway its my philosophy that if your gonna farm plat find the best way to do it via vendor trash - not FBSS luck/market prices set by the players... like... killing 3000 wisps in one day will net you X money etc...

Ugh, THIS. Every time I went to try and kill HGs in my 30s there was some bard there with 4 full health HGs chasing him while his 10dps worth of chants killed a 5th. He would bitch and threaten to petition you if you took one, despite the fact that it would have died and respawned before he got around to actually killing it.

^This^ = the "furies" that everyone's talking about.

Classes that can handle Seafuries in an efficient manner: Mage. Necro. Shaman. Enchanter. Bard I guess.

From there it becomes a question of who can do it the most efficiently. How you define that is up to you.

Best at pure speed killing: Mage.

Best at being able to handle and kill multiple mobs/adds at a time: Necro.

Best at never dying, unless you go LD or lich yourself to death or are stupid: Necro.

Best at pissing off everyone else on the island: Druid. (Honorable mention: Bard.)

Think the most plat ive made at 8 hours of furries was about 6k and some change. maybe more.

And i watch mages fight all day. If your summoning a fire pet and just sitting back, mine goes down faster. I may not have an uber DS, but i have snare and fear, which adds alot (probably not as much as ds ) of damage. My pet will bypass all physical skills such as block, parry, riposte, dodge etc.

I would rather hunt with a necro.

I have a 50 necro and a 50 mage, and I greatly prefer the necro for plat-farming unless I'm just sitting at a camp that requires zero skill and I can have my pet sit on the spawn point and do everything for me (ie: Dhampyre, AC). At seafuries, with a necro you can actually run around and kill as many seafuries as you can find. As a mage, you can do 3 at a time max, and if you get a 4th, you're probably screwed. Moreover, your job is so boring that you're going to end up tabbing out half the time, and eventually you'll get killed while not paying attention to your screen. Even assuming you die once every 5 hours of farming as a mage (which is pretty standard unless you're super-focused), the time it's going to take you to get back to OoT and/or get a rez more than eliminates the fact that you're killing slightly (and I do mean slightly) more quickly per seafury than a necro.

As a necro, you can still fear kite and tab out and pay little to no attention, but in the event that you tab back to see yourself getting raped by a fury while your pet is pre-occupied, you can either FD, harm shield, root it, fear it, or just lifetap it to heal yourself. You have a million options.

tl;dr - Mages are boring and that makes them less effective.

Necros are GODS during Kunark due to the prevalence of undead mobs...

No other class, to my knowledge, can safely SOLO boss mobs in Howling Stones -- due to their undead slows and feign death, they are the UNDISPUTED KINGS of HS.

IIRC undead slows weren't added until Luclin.

I did a lot of duo action with a necro in zones like HS and whatnot (and later on, crypt of decay), and with malosini on a charmed pet and slows on enemies, it's ridiculously good.

Hmm you may be correct I really can't say for sure. I do know, without question, that Necros are PVE gods during Kunark though -- not QUITE classic-era mages, but something like that.

Actually when you consider how much more difficult Kunark mobs are, I'd almost say that relatively speaking, they're BETTER than classic-era mages.

Velious-era monks, anyone!?!?
