<p>I've never taken EQ2 very seriously, but I'm on a PvP server now and would like not to be a free target for life. </p><p>I'm only level 12, and have saved all my traits and achievement points thus far, because I haven't been able to find good advice in the game on how to properly spend them. At first, everybody was telling me to go STR, STA, WIS/INT. Then reading the forum, it seems like I should trait in INT but haven't seen much info regarding achievement specs that work. </p><p>Any suggestions would be GREATLY appreciated. </p><p>TY</p>

Reaver kicks butt, int kicks butt with the spellcrits, and staminas end skill kicks butt (Or rather keeps your butt from getting kicked). works wonders imho.

i rolled an SK a couple weeks ago. I went 4-4-8 down INT line to start off with, and then went straight for reaver. I maxed out the Grim Coil lifetap (with the level 36 DOT, I return 38 HP per tick) and the Vitae reuse timer redux. Right now I am going down the STA line for Divine Aura, but I really like the melee crits and the AE knockdown. Hammer Ground is big money for PVP. Just last night I was sitting on EL docks and a 3 man group came after me, but I ran to the end of the docks and punted them all off and fought them one by one as they returned <img src="/smilies/8a80c6485cd926be453217d59a84a888.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" />

I've not spent any time on the PVP server with acheivements, but I will say that any SK should make getting 448 INT their first priority. I can see 48821 STA/INT being a great build for PVP. I bet that endline INT is actually useful.

If you wanna last long, go sta, if you wanna burn stuff down, go str. to add a bit more, sta makes reaver proc its heals for more. <img src="/smilies/8a80c6485cd926be453217d59a84a888.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" />

Wizard goes OUCH!

I went 48821 STR, 86801 INT, max reaver abilities except for doom judgement reduction (only get one off per fight regaurdless), 5 points into resist reduction and 4 points into the strength leach to get the STA buff/debuff. I get a lot of mileage out of this setup, but there are plenty of times I wish I had the STA line with DA.
