Sup all. I know the instant someone brings up the word class in DF they get thrown into a volcano here but I'll take my chances. I played DF1 back in the day and I'm here again with the people I met then Never been a huge MMO player, DF1 is the only classic MMO that held my attention in fact. With that being said my primary gaming background is in FPS, RTS and MOBA games (CS 1.6, Starcraft, DOTA, LoL). Ever since DFUW collapsed the crew and I have been focusing mostly on MOBA games and it was during this time I really hit my stride with the conventional support classes. I'm no hero but I love setting heroes up for success basically. I like initiators, healers, shielders and utility. I like to think I do these things very well partially because I enjoy it so much. Sorry for the long wind up there but that leads me to my question/suggestion....what is one to do in DF? The Hybrid 1on1 100K Bro role isn't my style at all. I consider that to be more of the carry class if we want to keep this metaphor going. In a perfect world I would be playing a class or within a playstyle to keep that person alive or enable them to succeed. My friends are telling me to go destroyer/mage killer because that's really the only other viable option besides the class/playstyle I just described. That doesn't really fit what I prefer to do either. Getting into the backline and doing godlike amounts of damage isn't a pressing need or desire for me. Again....I would probably want to be assisting that person whether is be through buffs/heals/utility. It seems as though I have one of two options. Go full meatshield and try to peel / soak damage or I can go mage to focus on buffs/heals/utility. The issue is I can't do both and it seems like whatever path I choose it's going to be very difficult to ever slip into the shoes of the play style I'm leaving on the table. Just wanted to give some feedback for future ideas. Any suggestions on things I could be doing now would be great as well.
