so...Does anyone still need a challenge? For all those people who still think the gaem is too easy, i propose the following challenge: try playing as a mercenary! You can only use skills that a mercenary uses but you can boost it with any passive or synergy skill (unlike the mercs) so that you can actually do damage and stay alive. The a1 rogue merc can be a zon using either fire or cold arrow (+synergy) and maxed inner sight. I suppose you could even use both skills if you want.. The a2 merc is the appropriate paladin with Zeal (since he can't Jab) or a jabazon with Doom spear (can you do that?). It's tempting but you can't use charge--don't even get this side of the tree. an a3 merc is obviously a synergized sorc. except for warmth, only one tree! oh yeah, you MUST carry a sword and sheild, and try to look like the iron wolves as much as possible. an a5 barb uses bash and stun, of course you will probably want to beef it up with sword mastery and concentrate synergy, but remember no warcries! hey if you really want a challenge just do exactly what the mercs do, but expect to die as often as a merc does.
