    Seems like it’s becoming common to hear new players reporting intense frustration immediately after starting something

    I often run with Mentalism /Psychology (both level 70) - considered by many as a low damage, support focus combo - which it can be.

    However, it also can be set up as a damage spec. that rivals many 'damage' combos - it all depends on how you build it.

    At level 70, i use 5 Ment damage spells + 1 heal and under Psychology, i use 3 damage + 3 heals.
    Main Ment damage spells used are:
    Pain Bubble, Agonise, Electrify, System Shock, Panic Charge

    I am able to easily solo Gazluk mobs with this combo.

    Although, it isn't as quick as archery, fire, hammer, etc. in clearing mobs, it is as good as, if not better at soloing, than many combos and survivability is excellent.

    In summary, it is all about what spells you use and how you mod your gear.

    'Odd' combos can work, you need a bit of patience, understanding and the gear with appropriate mods to enable it to do so.

    PS: Although not essential to the viability of the build, when it crits, the 705% critical damage modifier, does make for quicker fights.

    It is a pitfall if you're soloing.

    What is the more likely case: quickly killing 2+ enemies having 2 damage skill lines, or using all your power and CDs on healing yourself and suffering to kill those 2+ enemies with only 1 damage skill?

    Group play sounds good on paper but so far didn't work for me: either only a small handful of people are online when I play, or most of them are doing high-level stuff and so far I found no one to do low-level dungeons.

    It doesn't help that there is a LFG channel, but it's almost always a barren wasteland.

    And how much of what you just said is understood and can be easily replicated by a new player like me?

    All I understood is: "Have lvl 70 in your skills, have all the abilities unlocked and have strong mods on your items that offer damage boosts".

    How realistic is that for one like me with 23 Pig/20 Mentalism?

    well first and foremost , gear and modding . at level 23/20 look for gear with damage then if your having issues . I did start out with bat and ment .. leveled with no issues .. never tried pig but I'm sure pig offers damage . at the start don't worry about gear with healing or utility get gear with most % damage .

    Realistic?
    Depends on the individual and how willing they are to level the required support /crafting skills and grind councils i.e. how much time they spend in game.

    Gear can be crafted, modified and augmented from mid-level 20s, but most people don't bother due to cost and that the gear is soon out-levelled.
    The number of mods and augments at that level are the same for level 70, so it is more about gear quality and mods fitted than skill levels.

    Differentiator:
    It is a lack of knowledge of the game mechanics that stops many people from making the best of the gear they have e.g. what skills work efficiently with each other, what spells /attacks to use (and in what sequence).
    You can't emulate a veteran's experience overnight, but you can get access to it via the wiki, this forum, help channel in game, guild forums, etc.

    e.g. Not many people can solo the newbie island boss with a newly created toon with level 6 to 8 skills , but a veteran (who understands the game mechanics), can.

    In summary, PG won't hold your hand or wipe your nose for you. You have to earn knowledge by playing, or by leveraging other people's experience.
    Fortunately, the community likes to share and assist those who ask for help.

    Already, previous answers have addressed some of your points and if you have more questions, no doubt they will continue to do so.

    Regarding soloing: I would choose a damage and a support /healing skill over 2 damage skills

    Regarding animal forms: it is best to avoid them until your toon is established (c. level 40) before main-lining one. They are not really intended to be used as first-time skills - after all, originally they were curses.

    Personal opinion: Drop the pig form until you have mentalism at level 40+ (perhaps using sword, archery, unarmed, etc.), then use Ment to more easily level pig

    Ok, first of all, if you pick 2 support skills, you should expect lower damage output.

    That being said, Mentalism can be build to function as perfectly fine damage skills. You just need proper gear, and put some work to learn all needed skills.

    One thing you should look out for are enemies dmage resistances. Mentalism in mainly electricy and physic, and from what I saw, Pig is mainly crushign damage.

    At lv 20, there is not much dfference in damage output between support skills and damage ones. Damage comes from mods,a dn at that level they are simply too weak to make significant diference.

    I don't have much experience with pig, but from what I saw it has quite few damge skills. Pick Frenzy, maybe one healing ability, and fill rest with damging ones(dont pick Pig Bite thou).

    For mentalism, pick all dmage skills you can, add Adrenaline Wave, and fill rest with what you want (I would suggest picking power or armor wave). If you unlocked Myconian cave (need to gather a lot of mushrooms to level up your Myconic skills) there is NPC there named Mu who teach four Mentalism skills - Revitalize, Agonize, Electrify and Pain Buble. I would suggets learning all of them, but you can skip first two if you are short on cash.

    Once you get this skills, you can fill your whole Mentalism skill bar with damaging skills (I would pick at least one healing skill from Pig at this point), though I would still keep Adrenaine wave (since it boost dmage of all your skills, it will be better than one more combat skill).

    Definitly pick Electrificy, sine it deals godod amge,a nd can be moddd to stun. Between Agonize and Pain Bubble I would pick Bubble - it has lower cooldwon, power cost, and deal more damge. But since you have to burst the buble, this damage is not instant. One thing I noticed about this skill, is that it apperently keeps track of damge types you used to burst buble, and counts incoming damge, not recived. So if you cast it on Brain Bug, and use psyhic attacks only, it wont deal any damage, since bugs are inmune to psyhic.

    As for Agonize, it has this advantage that it deals its dmage instantly, and its direct health dmage, so it's better panic button, when you need this mob to die right now, no questions asked. Hoever it is psyhic damage, so keep it in mind.
