  1. I've been running a Forbidden Fist/Trickster with great success lately. Very tanky and deals very respectable damage,
  2. Do crits from riposte have a chance to give a phrase as well? I am starting to consider a new playthrough with a Trickster/Skald
  3. Single class wizard wins imo. They just have so much versatility with their grimoires. Either no subclass or bloodmage.
  4. The writing is very similar to what you would commonly get in DnD books and games, its very true to the genre in that regard. The dialogue choice may be basic, but you very often get choices that align with any alignment you'd wish to play. Its one of the few games where I've felt that playing a evil character did not outright punish you through dialogues. And I do agree with you on 2. I see this as one of the things that I really enjoy with the game, but it is not for everyone. At least the game came with a easy mode!
  5. With most of the major issues Pathfinder had at launch being resolved I would say it has quickly become my favorite.
  6. Bleakwalker/Beckoner is what you want. Pick any skeleton/shade summoning ability you come across.
  7. On the topic of tanks. How would a Helwaker/Skald or Troubadour tank hold up? Been wanting to play through the game as a tank instead of the skirmisher when the next DLC hits.
  8. A trickster/soul blade is a very good skirmisher with decent defenses. You can also use assassin/soulblade to make an extremly squishy, but also extremly good alpha striker. Both builds require a good deal of micro management though. The trickster/soulblade with a two hander has been my favorite so far, it offers good defenses, massive mobility, high damage and you can get some good cc from cipher.
  9. They are all very bad choices in my book. Wizard, Druid, Priest absolutely need single class to max power level and number of encounter spell resources. Only Paladin + cipher will probably not be crippled. Not true on the wizard part. Wizard is an amazing multiclass option for any melee frontliner.
  10. Depends on what you want to do. Wizards can be single target and aoe nukers, or debuff/buff machines. For damage you want to max out Might first, with dex, int and perception in any order you prefer after that. For debuff and buffing you will want your Int maxed out first. Unless you are playing on PofD I do not think you need that high Perception. Personally I like a higher dex and int for quickler and better effects of my spells. Resolve you can dump unless you plan to spend a lot of time in melee(Which mind you is a perfectly viable choice)
  11. Why not Devoted? With blackjack you can have up to 4 sets of dual pistols and switch between them without any recovery. It requires more micro to run, but its a insane alpha strike build
  12. I ended up benching her and bringing a chanting fishtank instead. So far I just found her to be annoying, and I did not really like the VTC anyway.
  13. The monk/ascendant is likely very micro heavy. Soul Blade is probably the easier of the two, but without having tried it yet my gut feeling tells me ascendant will be better in the long run I have very limited experience with cypher but what makes ascendant specfically more micro heavy? It is more the combination. You want to use the wounds from the monk class to quickly build focus to enter the ascended state, then once ascended hits you want to be able to use as many cipher abilities as you can to dish out damage in that window before reverting back to the preascended state and
  14. The monk/ascendant is likely very micro heavy. Soul Blade is probably the easier of the two, but without having tried it yet my gut feeling tells me ascendant will be better in the long run
  15. I will be trying out the Transcended Ascendant(Shattered Pillars/Ascendant) as my first char. It looks like a combination that could have really good potential. Most likely as a nature godlike for the added power levels.
  16. Your cipher spells do no matter. All your focus should get dumped into soul annihilation. You will most likely want to run a high might and high dex so you can build focus and wounds as fast as possible to get good uptime on swift strikes and keep a quick flow of focus.
  17. A nature godlike Shattered Pillars/Devoted looks using unarmed attacks looks like a very powerful combo, as does the high dex Skald build to maximize phrases. May need to experiment a bit with those. For weapon using monk multiclass options I am leaning heavily against the Soul Blade or Bleak Walker combos. Seeing the talking sword added I may end up going for a weapon build. This game really has too many interesting options..
  18. Currently working on a monk I plan to import into PoE2. I may try the Bittercut build. Was not aware of that bug, that is a shame :/
