Fighter Ability and Talent Advice in Pillars of Eternity: Characters Builds, Strategies & the Unity Engine (Spoiler Warning!) Posted March 11, 2017 Hey, thanks for the reply! The more thought I give it, the more I agree with focusing on offensive talents and abilities. As of now, Eder just stands in a group of mobs and never loses any health. I did some respec-testing and realized that Rapid Recovery doesn't even boost my passive healing by a whole point, so that's definitely out of here. I chose Overbearing Guard because I currently have +4 engaged enemies with talents, abilities, and items; and the prone part of the ability is nice from stopping enemies from advancing too close to my ranged characters. I'm still 50/50 on it, though. Yeah, I think I'm definitely going to focus on more offensive abilities and talents. I also just recently picked up Gyrd Haewanes Stenes (the dominate scepter) and bound it to Aloth. The dominate effect is insanely powerful. Thanks again for the feedback! Have a good one, friend.
