    Default Spec Viability (Tank vs. DPS)

    My Berserker main is a former alt. As it was an alt, and I was concentrated on leveling, I had him specced DPS, if only to make combat go faster when leveling. Now that I've been out of the game for a while, I'm wondering how I should set his spec. I still have to level from 90-95, so I initially wanted to DPS again, but I'm not oblivious as to how crap DPS Berskers are. If I do manage to cap again, I don't want to handicap myself for any endgame because I made it easier to level--but I do want to level the quickest way.

    I haven't played since mercs were introduced, so that may change my feelings about wanting to spec DPS, though. Also, when I was playing before, OT hybrid classes like Zerker and SK really had difficulty in getting into some groups/raids. Is that still the case?--as in, is EQ2 still extremely specific for group and class makeup?

    Any comments or advice on my questions would be appreciated, as well as information pertaining to where I can find the best ability rotation for Zerkers (and/or other classes)

    Thanks.

    You can get AA Mirrors, and try out different AA specs.

    Kinda get an idea of what works, and what doesn't.

    You can choose between speccing for dps or tanking before prestige? I thought it was mostly 300 points of shit with 3 or 4 required choices.

    This.

    There is nothing obvious in the any of the AA trees before the Prestige abilities where you need to make any kind of hard choices. In fact, even if I had more AA points, I'm not even sure where I'd put them regardless of intended play.

    Prestige, however, there is a little bit of choice between survival and dps/utility, but that's where the AA mirrors come in. I generally use one spec that has full left side on it, then a hybrid spec for dpsing/heroic dungeons/tanking adds.
