    Default Need help getting my toon setup, feeling lost

    Hello all,

    Level 65 warrior here and I am coming back to level to 70 and enjoy the new expansion. It's been so long, I might as well be new. Looks like there's a lot to learn and while Google is helping, I am still feeling pretty lost.

    I'd like to know what classes combine best for Solo leveling. I'd like survivability, but also decent damage. I really like the Bahmi Polearm animations, so the classes need to be good for that as well.

    Currently, this is my build (it's probably outdated and better for DW) Warlord, Paragon, Riftblade

    I've been parusing over the guides here, but none (that I can see) tell me what's a good Solo questing spec for 65-70, and uses 2h.

    Any help here is appreciated. If it's already a guide and I missed it, feel free to link.

    Thanks a bunch

    Pair up with points in Liberator. If you send SecondBass a PM, I suspect he would respond.

    Well that explains that. Sent him on his way with a variant of the one-button warlord (it's stupid good for levelling)

    What's funny is that this will be the top DPS warlord spec once the PTS changes go through (wrong 2 pts in RB and precision > ethereal but whatever)

    thanks all, I"ll use the 1-button (ugh) warlord until I hit 70 and can really show my strengths.

    I figured out why nothing felt effective. It was my gear. I was in detailed Thalasite gear. This, based on quest loot, appears to be dreadfully low.

    You are badly under-geared for the content. You can do the puzzle quests, although it would be very hard without an escort, or buy some throwaway gear from the Auction Hall, I guess you're not in a Guild, otherwise I'd be surprised if they wouldn't help you out. If they won't you're probably in the wrong Guild.

    Could also buy some greens off the AH. They're really low price at the moment. Those should kick you up a notch.

    Remember to use vampiric out of the death PA tree. It tends to be a nice buffer on not dying.

    I'm in a guild, I haven't asked anyone as of yet.

    I've done a few quests in the new zone and got 4 pieces of gear (including a new weapon). I can survive a little better.

    Going to power through it. If I run into issues, I'll ask guildees to see what can be done.

    Quick question, how important are earrings?

    If you haven't done it yet, the $50 essentials pack that gives you earrings, primalist, a bunch of souls and um...some other stuff, is worth it.

    Earrings on their own aren't ultra critical until end game stuff, but they're two stat slots that would otherwise go empty. I believe you can buy these with tokens again but I could be mistaken.

    Any chance of getting a link to that spec, been using an old (and very outdated) tempest spec, its ok, but I'm really starting to feel than lack of decent dps, its slowing down my leveling from 65 far too much.

    Thanks.

    Like Razielzian, I'm having problems leveling from 65, both in surviving and getting decent dps. Nearly all the guides are for lvl 70, with none that appears to be for leveling - so I would also appreciate it if SecondBass could post his "variant of the one-button warlord (it's stupid good for levelling)" - thanks

    original guide

    lvl66: take legendary breaking blow. Remove breaking blow from macro. use breaking blow when you have the power, use the macro otherwise.

    lvl67: legendary everything is a weapon.

    lvl68,69 do whatever you want.

    that should get you to lvl70 with no problems.
