I'm about to do a full playthrough of POE 1&2 for the first time. I've started 1 several times but never managed to finish before life got in the way. I'm thinking of making a fire godlike who weilds tall grass at first and eventually Abydons Hammer. Not a huge fan of fighters, but I'm open to pretty much anything else. I'd like to run this with the story PCs instead of a custom party. Probably 4-5 permanent members and 1 rotating slot for quests.
I've thought about a priest, paladin, or even a melee cipher but I'd love to get some ideas.
