Forum:Ascended all classes!

Not just YAAP: When I offered the Amulet to Kos last night, it marked the successful conclusion of a 5-year quest to ascend every class at least once. Final ascend 3.jpg

It was an educational journey. I had a few prior ascensions, mostly wizards with a couple of valkyries thrown in for variety. Seeing the strengths and weaknesses of each class in turn exposed me to a variety of tactics and knowledge I'd never needed to bother with, though -- the mechanics of projectile attacks, riding/jousting, polyself, etc.

Favorite classes: Wizard, Monk, Knight Least favorite: Healer, by far. They are just not good at anything, at any phase of the game.

There are obviously far better and frequent players than myself, but I had to share with those who might appreciate the accomplishment. :-)

Congrats on your accomplishment! I've embarked on a similar quest but have only got one class so far (Ranger) and am working on Knight. It certainly does make things more interesting, learning about the strengths and weaknesses of each class and adjusting playing style accordingly. -- Elenmirie (talk) 12:12, 13 September 2013 (UTC)
