I offer my help with templates, I will answer to best of my abilities any question from new or returning player. I don't promise it will be the best advice but at least will give you a place to start your research.

Very, WP barely nerfed them. Problem is that you need all top-notch gear, +9 def to be viable and it is hard to get. You also HAVE TO have buffbot to play, but you know that already. I'd say if you are sitting at 2100+ defense you are GTG, if sub 1900 don't bother with defensive stance and go BGS.

Well i had all +8 gear when i quit, i guess they came out with +9 while i was gone.  I did have a buffbot, first time i had more than 1 account on any game, but being able to solo elf camps = sweet.

Once i figured out the login/pass in the game is case sensitive, but on the account activation website is not, I got in. 

47 Ranger still there.

I assume we can migrate those old characters off the non-existant server, but does this also keep the guild affliation or would we need to make a new one/join another crew?

When you migrate your guild info and guild history is wiped. Rangers changed A LOT over last year, make sure to read up.

Templars are good as BGS (2h focus sword) and deflars (shield and 1h focus sword + shield +defense plate). Confessors are not so great.

Would there really be a point in even trying to start from scratch, especially without a "buffbot"?

Also, SB.EXE?

If you have a guild to join or bunch of people to come back with then yes it worth a spin and will be fun. If you want to play solo, just like WoW but with PKs, you have to have strong masochistic tendencies to enjoy resulting experience, unless you are good thief and donít mind dying.

Dwarf-Prelates still own w/ crazy defense + aoe goodness?

What are the top-tier Barb builds currently?  Did anyone come up with a viable rogue-barb build?

Warlocks still the hardest class to make a build for?

Any information on the newer classes (doomsayers and something else I believe) would be sweet.

A nation consists of its laws. A nation does not consist of its situation at a given time. If an individual's morals are situational, then that individual is without morals. If a nation's laws are situational, that nation has no laws, and soon isn't a nation.

dwarf prelates seen as no longer having enough punch, most people switched to deflars(templars with a shield) or dwarf sents for aoes. I forgot last time I seen dwarf prelate outside of lore server.

I think top barb build is female werebear all out con 2h axe. I rarely see chainsaws or 2h str minos. I think most people belive in too-much-hp-to-die approach.

Shade fighterlocks are still highest defense character that still can nuke, they are still around and doing fine. Templates are long since known and tried.

As to new - vampire mage assassins are hot. Still I don't want to talk about vampires, it makes me mad.

I am actually kind of glad that I don't have the time to dive back into Shadowbane. It remains one of my favorite gaming memories (HD and the folks un it were a lot of fun), but I just can't imagine grinding out that much exp/gold/PvP time again, especially as a 2 week trial or so. If Son of SB.exe is ever published, I will probably give it a try then.

On lore server you are limited to who you can group and guild with based on type of character.

What faction are you all going for on Vindication server?

Btw, what is considered the best bow template now?  I had a huntress/rogue that was bow/kitty kat that was pretty fun, and had started a bard/bow/human just to be a support-ranged type character.  Scouts and rangers were two types I had not tried yet.

BTW, there is still the old Catacombs Shadowbane character builder that is up on that site.  It isn't updated that well, but I used it to plan a couple of character when I was still playing.  Linkage  http://sb.catacombs.com/cbuilder.cfm

My 2 characters are on Mourning, i think.  I wouldn't mind joining up with other people from here... but the Loreplay rules are stupidly restrictive.  We'd basically have to choose a charter, post the race/class restrictions, and stick to it, rather than letting people just freely create chars.
