  1. Thank you @Boeroer, that is a really nice guide. I've already tried the Cauterizer in a previous run (which I didn't finished), but this time I want to try Two Weapon Style. But, what about level 14, 15, and 16? Also, shouldn't Blooded be placed at like level 15?
  2. Hello everyone. I need help with choosing Abilities and Talents—maybe also Skills—for a human barbarian. I want to build him as a full melee DPS character, dual wielding swords and/or battle axes. I came up with this Attribute spread: MIG 16 CON 13 DEX 14 PER 12 INT 13 RES 10 I'm not looking to min-max since I'm playing on Normal, I just need to plan which Abilities and Talents to take at each level, so I won't spend too much time thinking about my options whenever I level up. Thank you in advance for your help.
  3. Yes, I know the Attribute scores are hidden in a spoiler, but in the same spoiler, after the Stat Array, the OP wrote "If you want a higher RES score, check out the alternative stat array below.". But I can't find any other array in the post. Am I missing something?
  4. Hello everyone. I'm trying to add all the story companions through console commands to my roster to check out their automatic leveling level-per-level. The problem is that I can't find their names to make the commands valid. For example, when I tried to use "AddToParty Aloth" to add him to my party it didn't work, so I tried "FindCharacter Aloth" to find his correct name, but nothing happened. I also tried to use names like "companion_aloth" with both capitalized and non-capitalized first letters in any combination, I tried the same with Edér, Durance, and Grieving Mother, but had the same non-existent results. Can you help me with this predicament? Thank you in advance for your help.
  5. Having sort of the same problem, but with "AddToParty", I can't add to my party any of the story companions (Aloth, Edér, Durance, etc.).
  6. So, after all these years, we still have no mod or easy way to change the main menu background back to how it was before the expansions? Isn't it weird?
  7. Hello everyone. After a six months hiatus I'm coming back to PoE, and I've decided to restart the game anew. The only problem is, I don't know which character to play. In my previous playthrough (in which I've reached the start of Act III, completed 12 levels of the Endless Path, and finished Part I of the White March) I've played a human barbarian, but got bored. I want to play something more tied to the setting, which also will fit nicely in my party composition. My main party will be comprised of: Aloth (back-line control); Edér (front-line tank); Durance (mid-line support); Kana (mid-line damage dealer); Pallegina (front-line off-tank). I thought that the best fit would be a cipher (back-line damage dealer), both for the party composition and for the involvement in the story. So I created an hearth orlan cipher, but found out soon that playing something that's not human just feels off to me. Call me racist, but to identify myself with my character, it has to be human, like myself. So I'm thinking of creating a human cipher, do you think it could work? What kind of spread should I build it with? Which culture and background would better fit the main character of the story? By the way, I'm playing in Normal difficulty, so I don't think that min-maxing is really needed, but if you also have any build to suggest, that would be nice. Thank you in advance for your help.
  8. So, let's say I change my frontliners' builds - at least the tanky ones -, which would you advise to use? I'd like to play Kana with an estoc, Pallegina with a great sword, and keep Edér with sabre and shield, maybe give him a medium one instead of the large one he's currently using. The barbarian I think could keep his actual build with the great sword, he does amazing damages with Tidefall/Firebrand.
  9. So you say I should go with four frontline characters, and leave Durance and Aloth in the backline? Aldo I'd prefer to keep Edér as the main tank, I see Pallegina and Kana much better as off-tanks. Do you think that such composition would still work?
  10. Hello everyone. I am playing my first complete playthrough of the game with a party composed of a Barbarian Main Character, Aloth, Edér, Kana, Durance, and Pallegina. Right now Barb, Edér and Pallegina form my frontline, respectively occuping the roles of Melee DPS, Main Tank, and Off-tank, While the other party members form the backline, Durance as Support, Aloth as Ranged DPS/Controller, and Kana as general Utility. My question is: what kind of Phrases should I use with Kana, and in what combination? At this moment Kana has access to these Phrases: "At the Sight of their Comrades, their Hearts Grew Bold"; "Blessed Was Wengridh, Quickest of His Tribe"; "Come, Come Soft Winds of Death"; "Sure-Handed Ila Nocked Her Arrows with Speed"; "Dull the Edge, Blunt the Point"; "The Dragon Thrashed, The Dragon Wailed". How should I combine them? Also, should I bring Kana to the frontline to take advantage of his Chants? Thank you in advance for your answers.
  11. The priest would be built for the frontline? A "classic" melee priest? Because I like this idea. A backline made up of Cipher, Druid, and Ranger could be interesting, mainly because I'm not playing these classes in my normal playthrough.
  12. I'm taking in consideration the possibility of having a more "open" approach about classes, and don't limit the party build around the "classic core". That would give me a very wide range of options, building the team around the main character instead of building everything around four characters. Now the only question is: what kind of character would I like to play? Which class is absolutely needed in any functioning party? I'm thinking about priest or wizard, those two seem to be the most important party members of any party. Do you guys have any suggestion?
