New Doctor in town
September 16th, 2011 - PoRtCuLLiS
As much as I like playing my soldier, he doesn't have the ability to heal himself very well at all, making it difficult to solo anything that hits hard. With this in mind I made another alt character, a doctor named "Cardiff". Eventually I hope to dual-log and team them together, but a lot of levels are needed before that can happen.
I spent the doc's first ten levels on what is affectionately known as "noob island" doing various quests. The new-player experience is a lot better than I remember it being, Funcom seems to have done a good job in helping people ease into the game without dumbing it down too much. For example, the basic shops now stock pre-made implants for lower level characters, which saves having to fiddle around with all that too early on.
As far as weapons go, I've decided to try the pistol route. Pistol is the only green weapon skill for doctors so it'll mean less improvement points spent on guns, and more on the all-essential nano skills.
