  1. Yeah, probably a support/DPS Paladin. I play on low difficulty settings. I'll look into the Counselor Ploi build. BTW, your background story about the Ranger was pretty funny.
  2. If I'd play a Cipher, it'd be something melee. Are there any decent Paladin builds? Or tanky Fighters?
  3. I am in a Ranger-mood for my RPGs nowadays. Onenof the things I might change is the stats, indeed. If you have other suggestions, they're still welcome.
  4. Yeah, I understand you can't be viable from lvl 1 on wards, but some builds in RPGs are only valid at the very last levels.
  5. Thank you! That looks awesome! INT does cover some conversation options, right?
  6. Hhhmm, two-hander Ranger actually sounds intriguing. Could you please elaborate on it?
  7. I've never finished PoE, mostly because I dislike the mechanics: too many spells/effects with too short a duration, plus I never seem to be able to create a characterbuild of a class that I like. However, I do want to finish the game before part II hits. I've got both expansions. The classes I've shortlisted are Cypher, Paladin, Fighter and Ranger. I want my character to make a meaningful contribution to combat and have several dialogue options available. I tried a Paladin tank, but that was a dud. Also tried a melee dualwield Cypher, but I lost focus on that playthrough. Can anyone help me decide? I prefer something straight-forward, but I'm willing to dig some more into the Cypher. Thanks in advance!
  8. Should I have specific companions in my party at specific times in the mainquest? Or can I always go back and do a particular companion's quest? I want to avoid swapping my companions at random. Thanks in advance!
  9. This brings up something else: how on earth am I ever going to reach 30 in a stat?
  10. Perception via the increase in Accuracy, right? Do crits also increase the durations of debuffs? It looks like it.
  11. Nice. Atm I got Dual Wield Style and Soul Whip or Biting Whip, not sure. Planning on getting the other Whip, Apprentice Sneak & Savage Attack, possibly Weapon Focus: Rufian. Side question: Crits are determined by how much your accuracy trumps the respective defense, right?
  12. I'm having a lot of fun with dual sabres and heavy armour. One thing I was meaning to ask: is the "multiclass" Rogue Sneak Attack Talent worth it? I'm leaning towards yes, since most of the time the important targets are debilitated anyway. Also, the talent that increases the Whip's damage with +20%, I assume it stacks with the basic +20% from Ciphers?
