  1. So, how would you recommend I adjust my stats for Offensive Parry? Dex, Int, Mig, and Per all seem very valuable for a Paladin, so I'm not sure where I could really pull the points from. So, WotEP has an additional +1 PEN on top of the higher PEN that twohanded weapons have? Am I getting that right? Unfortunately, I won't have access to the Devil of Caroc Breastplate, due to how I did her sidequest in PoE1. I hadn't looked up anything about what carries over to PoE2 until after I had already done it. I don't mind switching weapons as needed. I could probably use WotEP in on
  2. First, thank you so much for the extensive response. Your insight is appreciated. If I were to proceed with WotEP on my Watcher, would you then suggest I alter my stats to accommodate Offensive Parry or pick up Blade Form instead with my current stats? I figured on WotEP in the first place, because I figured Offensive Parry would work well with Faith and Conviction and the AoE would work well with Flames of Devotion. Would you recommend Run Through or Spinning Assault? I'll probably keep a second weapon on hand for focusing a single target. I don't mind shifting my stats around a bi
  3. Thinking about White Flames proccing twice when DWing is making it haarder to justify using WotEP on my Kind Wayfarer. Can't help thinking a way to balance that would be if they'd applied some scaling when using a two hander. Oh well. I still like the concept of the weapon, but I wonder if it would be better off going to Pallegina.
  4. Another question: Is Sacred Immolation a viable ability at this point? I've read some older topics talking about how the Raw self-damage is so high as to make it almost unusable without a lot of effort to mitigate the damage.
  5. Yeah, I read that. But do two-handers generally get some kind of advantage over dual-wielding to make up for effects going off twice on full attacks? That does sound like it would be, beneficial when fighting a group if you have high deflection. I assume, since WotEP is primarily viable when fighting a group, the Spinning Assault would be better than Run Through? Is the Increased Reach enough to fight from behind a tanky fighter, like Pikes? Or just enough to hit someone behind your primary target? I think I've narrowed it down to Crusader or Inquisitor. Inquisitor mostly for
  6. Do two-handers, like Great Swords, have any solid advantages over dual wielding? Or is dual wielding objectively superior due to full attacks applying twice, like White Flames? I'm not exactly sure what I would be giving up in exchange for the double heal effect. In PoE1, I had my Watcher mainly use Hours of St. Rumbalt at first, then switched to using Tidefall for the Drain to overcome the damage from Sacred Immolation. I had Pallegina dualwielding Shatterstar and Godansthunyr. I did notice that, while WotEP deals cone AoE damage, it also deals lower damage than other Great Swor
  7. I was wondering. How well are stats weighted in PoE2? In PoE1, I went with: Mig: 15 Con: 08 Dex: 14 Per: 16 Int: 14 Res: 10 Being a Kind Wayfarer, the role I was wanting him to fill is a sort of damage/healer hybrid, with some defensive support. Would a Kind Wayfarer/Fighter hybrid support that, or just make me tankier? I was planning to take Pallegina along too and I figured she would already cover the Paladin/Chanter role. Is the healing from White Flames substantial enough that dual wielding is markedly superior to a Great Sword? Perhaps
  8. Hey. So, I just finished up my run through PoE1 with my Kind Wayfarer. Using Greatswords. I'd like to continue into PoE2 with a similar build, but I also want to try the multi-class system. So, I'm wondering what another class would work well to complement a Kind Wayfarer. I was considering Fighter, Barbarian, Priest, or Cipher, but I'm undecided. I'm inclined toward mainly using a Greatsword, I was considering Whispers of the Endless Paths for the nostalgia my Watcher would have for Caed Nua. However, I'm not specifically married to that choice. If it helps, I do plan
  9. The intention for my build is a bit of a Offense - Support/Healing Hybrid, more so than a tanky Paladin. After the input, I'm amending the build a bit: Human - Meadowfolk Paladin - Kind Wayfarer Stats: Mig: 16 Con: 8 Dex: 14 Per: 16 Int: 14 Res: 10 Dropped the Res to 10 to increase Dex to 14. I suppose I could drop Mig and Per to 15 to bump Con up to 10, but I'm not immediately inclined to. Abilities: Flames of Devotion Lay on Hands/Healing Chain Zealous Focus Sworn Enemy Reviving Exhortation
  10. Good Evening. Occasional lurker, first time poster. I was coming back to PoE1 + WM1 & WM2 for the first time in a couple years and I was planning do a PotD, Path of Iron, Expert Mode run. With default story companions; I'm thinking Eder, Aloth, Durance, Kana, and Grieving Mother. Forgive me if I don't have a full build entirely set down, but I'll type in what I have in mind so far. Human - Meadowfolk Paladin - Kind Wayfarer Stats: Mig: 16 Con: 8 Dex: 10 Per: 16 Int: 14 Res: 14 Considering dropping the Res to 10 to inc
