1. Is it P2W or the shop is mainly cosmetics, so that every items is attainable in-game?

 

2. I love playing melee healers. Apparently the priest is better at this, but the mystic seems more of my style (melee, no kiting, pets). Thought?

 

3. Mob grinding or questing grinding?

 

Thanks guys!

You will LOVE mystic up until 52. 

52-60 is balls for Mystic (no pun intended) BUT once you get an amazing self heal through several hours of farming you will be on par with priesyt. I would recommend going priest. They are way better for solo and pvp.

 

60 Mystic. 

 

 

It's not pay to win.

But its'nt the priest the common ranged spell caster, kiter and boring class overused in every MMO?

I'm looking for something like the Chanter in AION, Pally in WOW, Bard in RIft...

I prefer taking the quests I want and then mob grinding until I'm ready to move from the area. Then I turn in the quests and move on,.

Make sure you do the dungeons because they can be fun (first one is somwhere i the early 20's I believe) and of course the BAMS can be fun as well. (the large monsters you will eventually come across).

So was I, specifically the Chanter in Aion, love the shit outa that class.

I can confidently say you will be MUCH happier with the priest. It's more hearty, heals bigger, better buffs all around and hits harder with more roots.

Not sure how much of a help this will be but it's a start...

Though I can't seem to find anyting about a root. There is a skill Ishara's Lullaby that puts your enemy to sleep for 18 seconds.

1.- the shop is fair and one of the best f2p-shops imo.

2.- priest has better heals, does more dmg and some good buffs. mystic is the worst class for solo but if u have a friend to play with, u will lvl very fast. also grps love a mystic if they are pros and wanna rush instances.

3.- its kinda both since u have to do quests to lvl fast and 95% of the quests are kill x amount of y etc.
