Since my initial post on choosing a new main character I have done pretty well with my barbarian and really enjoyed the game (now nearly level in normal mode.
In this run I chose to hire Sagani quite quickly (lvl 4) and specced her in "pet DPS".
She now does tons of damage with the fox and even more with predator sense and using Persistence hunting bow (+50% dmg for the fox all the time basically) (http://pillarsofeter...com/Persistence).
I have a few basic questions :
- Which armor should I get for her (I still have the lame fine skin armor) ?
I was wondering if an heavier armor would really hamper her dmg output. I see that when my tanks are bypassed she can be put down rather quickly
- (side question) when engaged in melee, is it worth to disengage and try to run away while someone else picks the enemy, or shall I switch to melee weapons to hold better ?
- Is this Persistence bow a good choice or are there much better alternatives at this level ? Is it worth speccing in hunting bows ?
Thanks a lot in advance !
