Default First P99 Toon

Long time TLP player, I loves me som raiding and grouping. Not really a solo player. I've narrowed my class choice to 4. My plan is to level as best as I can and eventually find a raid guild. Please provide your opinions. [You must be logged in to view images. Log in or Register.]

The for classes are:
1) Ranger, 2) Rogue, 3) Paladin, or 4) Bard.

Truly thanks again for any info, advice.

Play what you love, not for power. If your main concern is getting a group, then rogue and bard amongst those are more desired. Rogues are pure DPS (damage per second) and bards are utility as their songs boost combat, mana regen and they can charm/mesmerize for crowd control. Every class has its pros and cons though.

Play one, see if you like it.

In the end, it's game, and you are the one who gets the enjoyment from it.

first char bard for sure....easiest to solo if you cant find anyone to group with but also super fun grouping class

join raid, afk manasong in cleric group, collect dkp, buy sellable raid loot, fund your ranger or paladin ubertwink

Yeah Bard by far the easiest if you're starting with nothing, Rogue would be the most desirable to raid guilds

Paladins and Rangers are the red-headed step children of P99, although that mantra has become waaaaaay less in recent years and pretty much every class is accepted.

Wizard is still shunned 1-59 and then beloved at 60

I'm glad I found this thread. I'm just starting up P99 after some 20 years not playing EQ. I've forgotten most of what I know about the game but in addition to the classes listed above I'd like to play something that both can solo decently well, maybe right in the middle, but is also one of the more desirable classes for finding a group. I never did raid much in the original game, but wouldn't think it off the table should I get to that point.

Any advice would be appreciated. Thank you in advance.

enc / bard / shaman / necro / mage

in order of difficulty to play hardest to easiest...with shaman/necro being too close to call

and by difficulty i just mean skillcap...lets face it anyone with 80 iq can make any character function well enough to get by in groups

pick ya flava

Monk and Druid as well technically. Although Monk not really if you're fresh to the server since you need some gear to make that truly efficient (plus groups will then expect you to pull and know the zone).

Druid is a good option as well. Can root rot and charm kill (animals) and eventually quad kite (kill four mobs at once while kiting them - med up, rinse and repeat) while also being desirable in groups at least for the first like 2/3s of the game. I think around 40 is where grouping as a Druid became tougher IIRC...your heals just can't keep up with the content so it's much harder to be the main heal in a group.
