Heh, yeah I can relate. Being an Eir requires a very....selfless personality. The kind of person who can look at a good piece of art or architecture, or just any good thing in general, and like it as much as if they had built/done/made it themselves. Because (and I don't know how much people get hurt in the endgame, so take this with a grain of salt) in a way, Eir could be considered one of the highest DPS classes of all. All the DPS classes say, "I shoot bullets!". Eir says, "I make guns!".
Hopefully you'll end up liking the damage others do as if you'd done it yourself. Just my nerdy, well-wishes for you. We could use a few more Eirs in the game, and it's not too fun when they get discouraged.
I have to kill fast and bullets too slow!
