I also like to use burning determination, which increases your defense for a little while. You use this when the healer is in trouble, and your health is low. It's also very useful in TVT, when many players are targeting you at once, or you want to force your way through their blockade.
Fire wall isn't essential. In fact, my first couple of months on this game I didn't use FW at all, and instead I had invisibility and flash freeze. However, from my experience, while it isn't needed, it's very helpful, especially if you've got good enchantments and such. If you have fire wall, make sure the level is MAXIMIZED.
Both warriors, dps and tank need bash and smite. All mages should have disrupt.
I split some of the discussion that started about pros and cons into a separate thread. :3
Most of the time, Me and my friend Ryena work together when we raid bosses.(Were level 10 atm, were doing quests together)Ryena is a hunter, she is our group's tank. She becomes a sponge and she does moderate damage too.Me from behind, nukes enemies or mobs or bosses with firespells while helping Ryena keep her Health up. Its kinda hard to multitask and the considerable amounts of potions I use can be expensive, but its quite rewarding and it feels good after doing a raid or hard quest together.Were trying to do the East Cave thingy when we try to save Sophie.Im waaaaayyy too low-leveled. So I just rushed it and..we still need some more practice. We try beating a few cave miners. Easy. When that fire bug comes near, RUNNNN! It deals alot of damage o,o
