Honestly i agree with you about the way how party goes, noone seem to like party in dk online, so its kinda a pain in the butt looking for one, and that's the main reason i always being a solo player, i totally agree about warrior is really hard to lvl up at lower level, they do have 2 awesome aoe, but due to the lack of defense its kinda useless.
But i have follow one of my guild member stats and runes, and made a dex warrior to farm runes and armor & possiblility voucher for $$. Dex warrior is really hard to level up at first, but after a while when you have good armor at lvl 30 and decent runes dodge/dex runes attach it. You will lvl up as fast as a sm maybe even faster.
But you need to be aware that even you being a dex warrior its bad for PVP, the game is more focus on PVP. At this stage you only have 1 stats reset, if you change your stats now, you won't be able to change it until Item Mall is open.
Otherwise you can just use the stats you have now and just just runes on armor and see how it goes.
I apologies if i sound abit rude there a first, trying to help out while at work. Don't really proof read my post
