Surveying the not so friendly environment in Myrkwood Forest on the way to level 16

OK I gave the Shammy a try, but I didn’t really like it. I am not a healer at heart, I am a hack and slash melee type warrior so I went back to my Thane and had a better time of it tonight venturing out in the snowy and beautiful lands of Midgard. I think I have got the gist of how to level successful as I was grinding my way through two levels from 14-16 and it took a few hours because I was enjoying the ride. Following this helpful community guide I found in Reddit really helps. https://www.reddit.com/r/daoc/comments/ald4a0/phoenix_midgard_leveling_guide/

Although my guildmates were there to provide advice via chat, this game still feels like a solo adventure, probably because I am still a few levels away from being able to join b.g.s and doing some preliminary RvR. Can’t wait to get there so I can start increasing Realm Rank. and enjoying the bonus which that entails.

Also, I may go back to the live server in the interim and simultaneously level a toon there because even though I like doing kill tasks, I also miss the wow patterned quests and quest givers which for the most part are absent in Phoenix. Yes I am well aware that DAOC shines in the pvp and especially RvR component of the game, but I think as a PvE game, it is also slightly underrated in mmo history. I say these because of its influence on future games of its ilk like World of Warcraft and Guild Wars.

I play PC games, mostly old and retro mmos. If you do to then let's play! Nuff said
