New Milletian seeking advice
-I wanna be a merchant using commerce (what's the best place to start here?)
-Want a good combination of combat skills to defend against bandits and also tend to be a lone wolf
-Thoughts/advice on being a giant adventurer with transformation mastery, battle alchemy/transmutation, and lance combat?
-Thoughts/advice on being an elf elementalist monk with martial artis, magic, and transformation mastery?
For all others full post below:
Hello folks, I've seen Mabinogi around and read up on the game and discussions and the like and I'm thinking on giving it a try. I have two character concept ideas I was tossing around based on my very limited understanding of the talent and life skill system (I do enjoy crafting, but I love being a merchant most) and was looking for some advice on this.
First and foremost I want to use commerce because I love trading and being a merchant (I've been looking for other games to be a trader/merchant where you have to transport goods - I used to play Archeage but the premium sub and cash shop woes got me down), and since I know you have to train this just like any other talent, I was wondering what the best way to go about this might be.
But also, since I tend to be a lone wolf (not always by choice, but /shrug), I know I'll need combat skills to defend myself from npcs and bandits (plus I do like exploring, and combat will enable this). My two concepts are this:
Giant adventurer with a combination of transformation mastery, lance combat, and transmutation and/or battle alchemy skills. I don't know if I can draw from transformation mastery after training it enough and getting enough transformations as a main form of combat, or if this is mostly fluff to supplement some other combat roles? The description wasn't very clear to me. What are some thoughts/advice on this? And where might be the best place to start?
The second concept was an Elf elementalist monk using a combination of martial arts, magic, and transformation mastery. Same question about transformation applies as above, but I also heard elves are not ideal for melee combat as they receive penalties to strength (although it seems that martial arts based on the wiki does not add to strength? is this not a main damage stat for martial arts?). Thoughts/advice? Where is a good place to start if going with this character?
Thanks in advance for any tips on where to start, and for reading!
