Ok I am pretty new to Uthgard, maybe a month old (give or take) and I first rolled a Necro that is now 43 (won't be long till 50). My Tailoring is almost LGM, I got my House/Merchant set up and am making good money farming and selling on my Merchant. So I about got myself setup good money wise & now I am thinking about what class to roll as my RvR class.

I was considering a Cleric but Cabalist looks fun too. The point behind this post is ..... k, so I'm 50 now, I'm old and my replexes are not what they used to be. I cannot keep up with these young folks with those "thundercat ninja" reflexes they have so I am not even going to try to. But 100 years ago on Mordred PvP I did experience 8v8 on the Hib Loop (If any old school Mordred folks remember that) and I main'd a Healer in our 8v8 group but as I said that was a 100 years ago and several SEVERAL MMO's ago. Uthgard has shown me I am 100% a total noob again but I do want to try (one more time) to experience 8v8 one more time and see if I still can do it.

Is a Cab hard to manage in 8v8 and what is my role in the group primarily? Is this class for someone older and a "little" slower? Also what are the primary specs for 8v8 for a Cabalist .... I'll probably go AOE spec for leveling till 40"?

I don't think Cab is what you are looking for.

As a Cab you need to be fast enough to pick enemy casters that can Nearsight you and Nearsight them first. Also other casters and support. You need to run some kind of split spec, meaning that you will be debuffing Body for your group (usually) and that means you're often MA too. You're also trying to lay out some disease as well. All while making sure you maintain good positioning and don't get tank trained.

I would recommend either an Armsman or Cleric based on what you said in the first post.

Just roll a skald. Nobody awaits your are good rupter, nobody assume, your are good damage dealer, you are just running speed bot and a kind of damage add for the assist train. ;)
