Default Returning to P99 (Necro vs Enchanter)

Decided to come back to P99 after a 10+ year absence. Have a 57 Cleric on Blue as well as a twink rogue (who's epic doesn't work now [You must be logged in to view images. Log in or Register.]). I debated coming back to blue since I have assets there, but have since been leaning on going to green for the higher population and building my way up.

I am also torn on class as well, right now it's a tie between Necro and Enchanter. I plan on soloing most of the time due to odd work schedule and grouping when I can. I know enchanter would get groups easier, at least back when I played. But seeing some people streaming P99 and videos, if seems like there's an abundance of enchanters (but I may be wrong). And necro can solo just as well for the most part. So right now I'm completely undecided, they both have their pros and cons.

Hey Xarn, if you're staying on blue I'd start guild shopping... its a lot more fun with other people to chat to/do groups/raids with.

Necro and enchanter are both fun. Arguably necros are more well rounded for solo stuff and with feign death, lifetaps and other toys they shine alone. They're also very easy to level without any gear, so if you did want to move to green and start at zero plat you'll be able to that on an easy start.

Good luck whatever you do.

enchanter is far stronger

necro is a bit more forgiving

If I were in your shoes I would stick to blue, server pop may be higher on green but its just more of the same...additional toxic warm bodies in the raid scene is the only real difference.

You already have resources that you can leverage and obtaining gear is a bit cheaper on blue due to server age.

Enchanter is generally considered the most powerful class in P99, with that said I personally tried some enchanter and wasn't a fan of the play style so it really comes down to a judgement call.

My vote would be for Necro but I think it really comes down to end game solo'ing if you want to be able solo in groups of mobs or camps than enchanter is the clear winning. If you want to solo single pulls or split mobs out in a 1v1 environment Necro is much better.

This is just my POV, and as a Necro fan.

Necro feels like the lazy mans class, compared to enchanter.
The enchanters feels more "active" when fighting mobs with charm solo, granted a necro can undead charm too. I never feel stressed on the Necro, on the enchanter I'm just clinching waiting for the charm break. I do feel Enchanter has a more cool solo end game, with the challenges. Not to say you can't do that on a Necro too.

And I would say blue server, top end it's the same. But less solo players competing, or even "gasp" red, if you plan to only solo.

I feel like Necro is the answer. They are also more fun to gear IMO.

I'd say probably stay on blue. You'd have to basically start over completely if you went to green, and it's not like you'd get to experience anything new since blue and green are on the same point in the timeline now.

If you want to solo, necro is way easier I think.
Enchanter is very finicky, even as a solo.
Necros always seem to be high, drunk, or smoking pot whenever they're grinding exp on felwithe elves or qeynos guards.

I figure it's way easier to grind as necro than enchanter. Go necro.
