So first your school depends on you.
If you like to heal people, I suggets life. Unless your a pain giver than go with storm or fire. But if you like lots of health and 20 resist to all schools with out crown gear and arena gear, go to the ice school. Now for double hits, I would go with myth. If you like weak attacks, blades to all schools, and traps to all achools, go to the balance school. BUT if you like stealing health get death. (Some death moves do damage and heal at same time. EG Wraith does 500 damage and health you 250. AKA, you get healed half of the damage you done)
Now for easy levels, you have to be a subscriber for this. Get a grandmaster to run you through all of the dungeons in the game. (Except the Malistare dungeon) then there are some side quests you can get at lvl 1. First, go to Digmoore Station and the mayor has a quest for you. Then go to Crystal Grove in the DragonSpyre Academy. Zarek Pickmaster has a quest for you. But it takes lots of work since you have to fight 2 bosses in this one. If you do all of this you will be lvl 20-30 starting the game. I'm currently doing this with my ice and he is lvl 19 in unicorn way.
