Wondering when I should switch over to meleeing for TP. I have a joyeuse and need to set up a build to support it. Whilst I am predominantly a mage I have been slowly collecting melee gear for it. I have no melee skill merits yet but I could merit Sword fairly fast as RDM has access to Sword merits and obviously I'll be free to merit marksmanship when I hit 75.
I have capped sword and marksmanship at 67 and intend to keep marksmanship capped constantly (managed so far with no other marksmanship jobs!). Am I going to struggle with Racc losing my trailer's kukri if I switch to melee at 70 rather than wait a couple of levels? I have a pair of dusk legs for 72 and blood finger gauntlets for 73 so I assume I should be ok then...
I have /RNG and am nearly done with /WAR.
Current wearing for ranged tp:
AF Head/Body/Feet, Jaridah Hands/Legs, Spectacles, gun belt, Amemet+1, Vision/Beaters earrings, Shark gun + trailers kukri
I have a Diabolos' torque for 70 as well as War brais until I can wear Dusk and get some Denali Kecks. Eventually I hope to get some skadi legs.
