Default New Sk

New to EQ (never did it when it came out), Chose and SK as my first character and am loving it so far (Level 38). I have two quick questions which will become important fairly soon:

1) Should I do the SK epic 1.0? Does it make sense, or just do the pre quest for 1.5? (been reading up on the class a bit, Allakazam is quite helpfull).

2) Once I start getting AA Points, where should I initially spend them on? I have bought all Access, so I do have the "good" merc...

Thank you for all the help!

Search is your friend.

As to the 1.0 that is up to you if you want to put the work in for it or skip it.

1) Yes, epic 1.0 is super cool. Not the best weapon, but super cool.

2) defensives, then anything that boosts critical chances (DD, DoT, Melee)

To be honest the real reason besides the pride factor to do the 1.0 is later on the ornamentation quest you can do. That will make your 1hs weapon look like you 1.0, That in itself was enough to make me glad I did it. You cant get that ornamentation unless you have your 1.0. You wont be swinging that weapon long but honestly it does look good. I have not done the task a second time because well I don't think the 2.0 looks as good as our 1.0 does.

Follow the walk through on this site for the 1.0 and its not that difficult. Depending what server you are on give a shout to some of us we may be able to give you a hand. Get in a guild if you can too. the trade skill areas and especially the portals are worth it.

Besides what's listed above (pride being big), I seem to remember the 1.0 being easier than the pre-quest (if you do them at the same level). Plus with the hardest parts (swords) being able to be MQ'd, I think that makes it a no-brainer. Be nice to some senior Sks on your server, they likely have the swords lying around in their bank. If not, some people are inclined to help out fledgling Sks with their 1.0 for nostalgia, if nothing else.

Many thanks for the kind responses. I am on the Vox Server. I hit 43 yesterday and should be 50, hopefully, by the end of the night. I will read up on the quest of Course : ) I have joined a guild on Vox (Veritas Morti), but so far 99% of my leveling and questing was solo (and quiet easy). I am still having a real blast, who would have thought that a 17 year old game can be this much fun... I would be very happy to come under the tutlage or mentorship by a Senior SK, so if there is one on Vox, please give me a shout!

Thank you,

Prettiez (Ogre SK)

I was going to post a pro-Zek argument, but let's be honest - that cesspool takes a certain kind of special to love. Man I miss that server and EQ sometimes.
