Zerkers do good dmg, not great anymore since they were nerfed. Savages were nerfed this last patch 1.65, dmg decreased a ton from what I hear from the boards.
If you still want albion and want to have some fun i'd recommend this.....
Merc , pain to level , great fun in endgame RvR (lvl 50) and does good dmg.
Friar, easier to level easy to get groups (healing) great support class in RvR but you will be hanging out with the wizards a lot because if you charge out you'll get hammered in your "robes."
Reaver, easy to level, can chain oj's until your fingers fall off with minimum downtime, endgame is pretty good although your huge dmg dealers (leviathon) are positional attacks and are sometimes (very often) hard to pull off because the smart players know this and can recognize reavers and they dance often (move around)
If you want a different realm let me know, ill post good info on the other realms. I've been thinking of rejoining the game myself but i'm trying not to, I'd rather wait until one of the other games comes out.
btw, before the left axe/savage nerf, they were the shit. savages had insane back style/stun.., and zerker had a crazy anytime style, it costed high endurance, but because of shaman end regen it wasnt a problem. thats why shadowblades were so good, its because they got to use left axe anytime style and that made em have an edge against other stealthers. also because they could perf with a 2handed weapon, unlike other stealthers.
btw if u make a caster, make a matter cabby, they fun, and a mana chanter
also, one more thing.
friars>all the other melee in pve. so they easier and more fun to level the only thing that they lack, would be an isntant ae mez, ive had my ideas for the perfect class..heh
high dmg, good defense, insta pbae, insta DOT, insta AEmez, insta bolt(2), stealth, unlimited skill pts, able to use bow/arrow, able to use volley, mana regen passive ability... something long those lines
As for Midgard I would look into either a skald or a healer. Skald simply because they are fun. Yes they are a support group but you will NEVER not find a group in RvR endgame. Leveling shouldn't be hard either as they have a group run (everyone LOVES this) and you can instant mez. They also have two instant dmg chants they can cast every 15 secs (new patch.) Skalds are just plain fun if you ask me.
A healer is midgards primary healer (duh) Sounds boring right? Wrong they are also one of if not THE most important char in Midgard as they are the primarty crowd control for midgard. True you have no offensive ability but you can stand back, mez people all day heal your group, and watch them smash your foes to death. Groups will never ever be a problem.
Just remember though, that the leveling in DAOC is a long long windmill of the same crap. Some people like it, I hate it. It's not fun, theres nothing to it, the quests are just not fun. All the camps are normally taken (good camps) Just remember I said that right around when your lvl 40ish and your logging in for 5 hours a night for 1/2 a bub cause you keep dieing.
Ask anything you'd like to know, ive been with the game (not currently) for 2 years so I know quite a bit about it (not all) BUt I sure do like to help
Necro's are super fast levelers, but you said you wanted an easier option....so I would undoubtedly go for a friar. Its great fun, easy grouping, and you actually look kewl swirling around smacking someone with a huge stick.
If friar isn't your cup of tea, try a cabalist. Its another pet class that has easy soloability and is fun in RvR because of DOT's (dmg over time) spells that piss people off but they do good dmg. Your pet will keep people off of you for a few secs, usually enough time for you to escape. Another good class to try out is a Theurg. Those are very fun, but you gotta know how to use em.
