So I got the email from Funcom about the new huge update and I thought to myself "Geez, I used to enjoy AO ages ago". I had been, over the last few days, thinking of what game to play for the upcoming summer and beyond.
I am highly partial to pet classes. So I was looking at Engi,MP or Crat only, as I restart from scratch.
Usually pet classes lend themselves to being great solists, and with a wife/2 kids and constant (and sometimes unannounced) AFK's through the day, these 3 seem like they would likely suit my playstyle. The class should also have the ability to keep itself alive through various means.
I have always been a damage monkey. So long as the class can dish out good chunks of damage and have somewhat a minimal downtime I'll be content.
I did browse various forums and many other AO related sites, but much of the info I found is years and years old, and not seemingly up to date.
So of the 3 I listed, which would (with all the changes over the years), be best suited to solo play, with varying AFK's through the session, able to keep itself alive, and does "good/great" damage overall?
