Right now I'm just feeling a little lost and overwhelmed. I've been playing for 4 days now and I'm level 46, but I still feel like I don't really know what I'm doing. As soon as I was able to use the in game chat I found out I should: a) Do random daily queues. b) Join a guild.
a) I started joining the random groups at about level 30ish, and it would throw me in super beginner dungeons, but twice now I've been in a slightly harder level 40 dungeon and after that I really feel like I don't know how to play my class at all.
I'm a Paladin and I went in with a Justiciar loadout and anytime we ran into ~10 mobs one of the dps would die even if I tried healing/using enmity skills and I'm constantly running out of Divinity and only at around 20% of the meter full by the time the group runs into the next batch of enemies. So I end up waiting 20 seconds for my enmity skill to cool down and just sit there blocking. Also I feel bad because sometimes I get lost because I've never been in these dungeons and fall behind.
So even though it's the only way I know how to get Astral Diamonds at the moment I feel really discouraged from actually joining the random queues now. I haven't tried going in with Oathkeeper yet, but I feel like I'll still have the same problem of running out of Divinity... and knowing it's only going to get harder, I'd really appreciate if anyone has any advice for playing a Paladin. Also I have no idea what stats I should be looking for on armor. I've just been following the little star suggesting the "better" armor sometimes I lose 1k combat advantage and gain 1k armor penetration, or lose 1k deflect and gain 1k critical strike, I really don't know how much they affect me.
b) I'm scared of joining a guild and people expecting me to know how to actually play my class when I've spent half my game time running around town collecting pumpkins and waiting for iron ore deliveries.
