  1. Do you think that Brute or Brawler can do fine in PoTD? I was thinking Brawler first on Veteran, Brute with Berath Blessings in PoTD.
  2. Then the Pollaxe clearly needs to be bound as a barbarian. I might try a first playthrough as a Brawler (roughly the lady of Pain build), collect enough achievement for the Berath Blessings for loads of cash, to play as a Brute and with the Devil of Caroc armor, not care about the Confused inspiration. Cheers for all the feedback!
  3. That’s good advices, thanks everyone. It seems Brute wins over Brawler, I’ll have to resort to decide which weapon looks cooler....
  4. Is it more worth it than Morningstar modal? Also not sure how does multi class works with soul bound weapons. You get both the fighter and the barbarian soul bound upgrades?
  5. I think I'm down to 2 potential concepts: Brawler with Greatsword or Brute with Morningstar. Whilst the idea of a swashbuckler still is attractive, I can't help but picture it as a dual wielding saber character, with may be 2 pistols as a second set. I have come down to make a lsit of PROS and CONS based on the Helwalker and Berserker subclass, to differientiate them (assuming all other thing being equals, and a base 10 INT) Brawler with Greasword, Burden / Whisper of the Endless Path PROS Action speed bonus: 15% and +5 DEXT so +30% action speed for 10 sec ( with Duality of Soul, 10 Wounds, that's up to 15 sec) Free full attack: 33% if Critting (Swift fury) +25% if Critting (Heartbeat Drumming coming late Power lvl 7) . Not sure if they stack or not Tenacious inspiration with Thundering blows +10 MIGHT +10 INT at 10 wounds, without Tenacious inspiration (Should be easy to activate the Burden Enchant ). Really good for the Fighter Recovery (+30% healing, + 50% duration) ​CONS that +50% damages takenBrute with Morningstar PROS Action speed bonus: 25% for 15 sec ( with Confused from Berserker Frenzy, you lose on duration). By the time you get Blood Storm, no issue with duration. 20% extra on kill for 10 sec from Bloodlust. Not sure if they stack. Free full attack: on kill with Crushing blow attack (Better than Barbaric Smash?). On kill with Blood Thrist but coming at Power lvl 7 (and not sure if only once or not. I assume so) Tenacious and Fit inspiration with Frenzy + 25 Acc with the Morningstar Modal when you get Brute Force. That's kinda nuts Various source of Hits to Crits and extra Crits damage. ​CONS Frenzy hides your Endurance Confused from Frenzy really sucks cause you lose on duration of Frenzy and the fighter Recovery, and not sure how to counter hit easily and reliantly Raw damage from Frenzy but that's manageable with fighter Recovery I guess ​
  6. Thanks for the responses. I have spend some more time playing with build ideas. It hink a riposte build can be really powerfull but i would probably build my party tank more in that line if possible (Looking at you Eder). Brute seems to have good action speed potential, but do the action speef from Frenzy and Blood thirst stack? What about th ecarnage and the Mob stance? Isn't it a bit of an overlap? Looking at the Helwalker seconds class, you can rely have some fun synergies with the Duality of mortal Presence, with + 10 MIGHT and +10 INT, which helps the recovery the Fighter recovery. But is that enough to counter the + 50% damage taken? Also I was womdering if the Swift furry no recovery chance stacks with the one from Heart beat or you just get the best of the two? I have looked at build suggestiosn for soulblade. The one I found hardly take any active abilities from the Cipher Line. Mostly focusing on Soul annihilation.
  7. Greeting Build Forum. I have been a visitor of this forum for a while, since PoE1 and have seen some great builds and advices posted, so I figured I would take a shot at asking for help myself. Currently playing PoE1 to continue in Deadfire, playing a monk mostly due to the "per encounter" limit of the other melee class that annoyed me. But I am in a conundrum to pick the future class in Deafire (quite frankly spent my last week at work trying to figure this one out.) I have seen some great build idea around but unfortunatly I lack the time to try lots of them, and most are for previous version of Deadfire. My heart is set on a multiclass with Fighter as one of them, wielding a greasword.Probably Devoted though I could be convinced to go for Tactician, I am not sure how Power source hungry fights are. The problem comes when selecting the second class. I am trying to find something engaging & fun to play - I like to interact with my main character in combat rather than just let it on AI mode. If it is not optimal, that's Ok. Here is what I have already roughly decided. Role: Frontline Damage dealer with decent survivability Weapons: Greatsword Difficulty: probably hard, though I could be tempted by PotD, depends how much it is punishing with a suboptimal build Race&Stats: Aumaua, with high MIGHT, good CONST, DEX, PER, average INT, can dump RES to 8 (for RP reason mostly) Party: I tried not to spoil myself too much there, but I'll play with the companions you get. Classes: Here is the issue. So Multi class. Class 1: Fighter, devoted to Greatsword. Could be convinced by tactician. Class2: Hesitating betweem Helwalker, Shatterd Pillars, Barbarian, KindWayfarer (for RP reason), Streetfighter, and Soul Blade. My thinking so far: Monk gets Swift Strike, wich helps with the Greatsword. Helwalker looks interesting, the more you get damaged, the more punishment you dish out. Survavibility may be a concern but I guess Turning Wheels will help the fighter recovery with the INT. May be a bit late in the game, thats why I am also considering Shattered Pillars. Less damage but more survivable. Also concerned that it is a bit dull to play. Helwalker synergizes well with the Burden greatsword, but no idea how early you can get it. Barbarian, looks like you get tons of way to reduced your weapon recovery. Frenzy of course helps too, but from what I have read so far survivability and accuracy might be an issue. KindWayfarer looks fun, Accuracy is clearly not an issue then, Survivability is good and you can get a couple of good "support" abilities if need be. A bit concern by the necessity to cast Sworn Rival too often and it might limit my gameplay. You get a way to recover your Zeal at ne point too. I like to play Benevolent, but if you cross me or backstab me, well ain't gonna end well for you. So I get Agressive points and not sure how punishing it is. Also I know Palegrina is back and I like her in my party, so might be too much paladin? Streetfighter, mostly because I have read how crazy the combination is. Not too sure how easy it is to activate its feature and more importantly how not to get the recovery malus. Soulblade looks devastating with Soul annihilation, but then you don't cast other spells and therefore it feels like a bit of a one trick pony to me. Thanks for your help and your suggestions. Of course, if you have another second class to suggest, I can be convinced but these seems to be the more melee focused one. Regarding the equipment, I have no idea, but I am definitely set on Greatswords, at least 2 handed weapons. I am not looking for the most optimal build, more something engaging and that feels strong and powerful. If the post is in the wrong part of the forum, Mods feel free to move it.
