Alt-itis being what it is, I’m still exploring races and classes in EQ2. Since a few of us jumped back into EQ2 on the evil side, I’ve rolled a dark elf shadowknight, a ratonga coercer, an ogre berserker and now an arasai bruiser.
We seem to have a defacto trinity rolling and I guess I ended up in the tank roll which is a nice diversion from my usual healer duties. With the forgiving leveling curve now in the low levels, the cost of switching or rerolling and catching up is minimal.
As a result, I’ve been diligently working on my arasai bruiser which satisfies my sense of comic irony. As I mentioned to Wilhelm last night, “Nothing says ‘Fantasy’ like an evil ninja fairy riding around on a bear.” To which he replied, “you mean an evil EMO ninja fairy riding around on a bear.” Touche.
So, among bouts of pie baking and laundry, I managed to get him to level 20 so he can use his dire bear mount that came with the TSO expansion. Without further adieu, I give you Bearasai:
Silly indeed, but fun nonetheless. Now if I could only use the fae glide with the bear, I’d give a whole new meaning to the phrase “a bear in the air“.
