    Default New player, new dirge

    New EQ2 player here and I finally decided on playing a Dirge as my main. After pouring through the forums here and other places it seems that Dirges are frequently attached to tanks acting as buff bots. Since that is not the case for me, I had a question regarding AA builds.

    I've reviewed the AA builds and I've got a question regarding an effecient solo build for dirge's since people don't group in the lower lvls. I understand the build posted as a lvl 90 grouping/raiding build. However would a solo build take more in the stamina line for more multi-attacks, and if so where would you sacrifice points from? Part of my confusion comes from not understanding fully where most of a Dirge's dps comes from does it come from auto attacks where multi attack would result in a net bonus in dps, or from CA's and songs?

    you'll want to pump your ma as high as you can as that is where dirges dps mainly comes from......as for solo aa build go for all the dps you can ( sorry at work now and cannot log in to give you more specifics ) so your kill rate is quicker , also with the gear changes lately i think survivability is abit easier and u won't need to kite so much......gl with your dirge and welcome back to eq2

    Most of a dirge's damage comes from our autoattacks from our myth buff. Since you are low lvl you won't have that luxury.

    Your solo build should consist of sta and wis lines for fortissimo and dktm. Also, max the two lifetap spells in the dirge tree. Lifetaps are very handy against heroic content. In the SF tree, definately get evasive manuveurs.

    Sword and board isn't a bad way to go either for soloing harder mobs since you get a knock-down which will open up bump and a stealth attack.

    As many other posts have stated, root the mob, debuff it, then throw everything at it.

    Ok, so this is what I'm looking at working with now to lvl up with, I'm capped at 50 AA points until I think 70 is what I read. So I figured this would be the best way to distribute my beginning points based on the input here.

    Put your last point in bump and then the next 10 in Howl and Thrust in the dirge tree.

    Then start with the Shadow tree all the way to EM.
