There are 3 classes I would like to play, but I don't got much time to play so I want to pick just 1 class for now. I won't be using the IM much, or not all, and I got a limited starting budget of around 200mil. So I probably won't be able to buy high enhanced equipment or pot myself up to the max because I simply won't have the cash for it. Keeping this in mind, which of the following classes will be the cheapest to play?
My first thought was cleric, but when I took in the merchant mart there were only a few healer wands in there and close to non were enchanted. I also read the game became pretty much of a solo play and nowone still want to party or duo. Won't this make it very hard for a support class to lvl up? Cleric's kill extremely slow for what I know, so I can imagine it would take an eternity to lvl up on their own.
Now there are ranger and archer left. I would like to play a ranger since they look like a fun class to play and there are some really nice (and rather cheap) accessories out there for ranged physical classes. There's also enough gear to come by for both ranger and archer. But I'm not sure how hard it will be to lvl up these classes without the use of IM items. I bet it's all easy to lvl up these classes with hp stealers and other IM pots, but I simply can't afford these items. I got the feeling I will fall behind a lot compared to the rich(er) players and that I will be forced quit at some point because I won't be able to lvl up further without help of IM. I don't want to pop hp and mp pots every few seconds to stay alive, it will ruin the fun for me.
