<p>I had a lvl 51 palidan than put me to sleep when playing it. Now I got a 51 SK<img src="http://forums.station.sony.com/eq2/images/smilies/908627bbe5e9f6a080977db8c365caff.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" width="15" height="15" />. I got my stances and buffs and almost everything mastered or adept 3. When I was looking through the CA's and stuff I thought to myself....is it even possible to die? Funny thing is, he seems to solo just as well as my pally. I'm thinking this is user error...Basically I'm looking for any tips ect you guys have, what AA's I should get for max survivability. I think one of my big problems is that i use my blessing once heading into the fight.....i'm thinking if i used it everytime it's up i'd be alot better off...I'm also only lvl 51 too sooo...Anyways, for me so far. I'm loving the playstyle of a SK way more than my pally....although i really miss amends =(</p>

guess i gonna say what always is said when it cmoes to the question about SK AAKosstarter 1Int 4-4-8 (if your dmg crit the included heal alos crit, DONT waset in legioneers mercy as it only works for pallys)str 4-4-8-6 (faster you hit = bigger chance to proc <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /> )Sta 4-5 (knockdown.. a long knockdown, do i have to say more?)EOFReaverget the blessing, the proc chance and the DOT thing (cant rememebr name) to a Dot/Hot. 5 in each, then spen 5 more points in reaver as it suits you, then you got it, reaver, had its kick in the nuts last GU, still worth it

<p>Ugh, don't get me started on SK AA. I've repecced AA so many times I've lost count. I don't even know if I'm going to stick with what I have now. I think the general SK populus spec into the EoF reaver line, and pretty much everyone can agree that you need to go 4-4-8 Int KoS line. Everything else though is up in the air and play style oriented. </p><p> As far as tips soloing, things do get better after you get your tap veins at 55...Death march is also one of the better abilites you'll get but I can't recall when you get it. Just keep practicing and you'll find somehting that's right for you. I'd highly suggest you find a dup partner for the time being...either an inquisitor, Illusionist, or any of the HoT healers are always a good add. Just stick it out a few more levels as you're just getting into the meat of the class now. </p>

What are you talking about?Also, to the OP, the blessing line is the bread and butter, and backbone of a sk. Keep it up at all times. Really. Its a fair amount fo dps, and its a fair amount of healage. Those two also makes your aggro much much better. <img src="/smilies/8a80c6485cd926be453217d59a84a888.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /> Keep it up even with healers in the group. and cycle your lifetaps whent hey pop up if your health is low or if you feel some more dps would be nice. Hit everything else as it seems sensible. <img src="/smilies/8a80c6485cd926be453217d59a84a888.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" />

If you were refering to the 5pts in the Reaver line for the HT heal how is that not worth it.  That is an emergancy heal.
