Came back after about a 2 year break and I'm pretty much fumbling around on what to play now. Lots of things changed like deadeye with the new malice mechanic and sword ele actually being considered good! Thing is the class I use to play the most of, thief, has really lost its' charm now that the game is different. The appeal use to be the high amounts of stealth gameplay coupled with high damage. But with so much stealth hate, and not mentioning just playing warrior to do much more damage and have way more sustain, it seems evasion thief is the way to go; I never cared for evasion thief.
So I'm looking for a new class/es to focus into. I'd prefer a build/class that has a very high skill ceiling without resorting to playing handicaps to actually achieve such a thing. Emphasis on "high skill ceiling", the skill floor I don't care about. I've tried necro, but it just feels rather boring to me. Sure there may be a ceiling for optimizing damage, but the core gameplay of scourge bores me to death. Even reaper seemed rather shallow; not to mention outclassed. So having "outplay" potential is an enormous plus in a high skill ceiling over just a simple optimizing damage skill ceiling (That's not me saying scourge has a high skill ceiling or not). From what I gathered dragon hunter might be a good contestent, but it also sounds like I might just end up running into a brick wall with it.
So any suggested classes or even builds?
