    Default New player looking for help

    I don't have a serious character yet but I want to ask some questions about making one. I have never leveled past 22 or something like that because I wasn't sure what class, AAs, tradeskill, etc. to pick. My in-game name is also Xolectic but I will likely delete/remake the character as necessary until I find what suits me I'm looking for a fighter class that uses blunt weapons, so one of my questions would be whether to go with the Woodworking or Weaponsmithing skills to make my weapons.

    Once my account gets approved, go ahead and move this to the "Noob Questions" forum, but until then I will post some of my questions here. The BIG one is that I really, really like crushing weapons used for actual melee fighting. This means I have to use a fighter class, which I would assume that most of them are fairly noob-friendly. Most of the early quest rewards for all except Brawlers tend to be slashing weapons though. While I have put some play time (in the newbie zones) into the Monk and Bruiser, I might like the option of using a shield as well. I prefer two-handed weapons but with woodworking you seem to get only the Bo staff as a fighter-focused 2h crushing weapon. The low level cudgels/clubs seem like a good option. It seems that rare lumber was easier to obtain than rare ores, another reason why I feel like woodworking might be a better fit for me. I browsed some of the wiki articles and the high level crafting books contain 1h clubs and cudgels made for fighters. While I would prefer a 2h weapon, dual wielding cudgels or equipping 1 with a shield seemed to work well in the early game for me.

    Forgot to mention what classes I have tried. Berserker I enjoyed, I also liked Monk; the Bruiser was pretty much the same but I liked the idea of the Monk being able to heal others with Mend. Shadowknight seemed like it involved a lot of spell casting, which isn't really my thing.

    I decided to go with Berserker again, and Woodworking as my tradeskill (just like last time). Since there are plenty of craftable 1h clubs, cudgels, etc., I will try a club+shield style. Some of the tier 9/10 clubs (the few with images) are interesting looking and probably what I am looking for in terms of whenever I manage to go ANYWHERE in this game. The last issue is race. I often end up picking a Human for appearance reasons but now I am considering others as well. Any race that has useful stats/traditions for a melee class is great, and any that benefit woodworking helps a lot. Half-Elf looks cool and it has some tradition related to woodworking.
