So my PoE1 MC was a Cipher and I want to keep that going since I really liked the class.
Starting out on my first PoE2 run-through, I'd like to stick to single class, and the Ascendant Cipher seems like a big powerhouse. I haven't played the beta at all, so I'm curious if it's as good as it looks.
Also, wondering if I could get some PoE2 tips in general since I haven't seen any of the new combat changes yet. What's considered the best weapon for Cipher now? Looking at the Ascendant, it seems like I want to build as much attack speed as I can so I can get to max Focus as quickly as possible, and then be able to cast as many spells as possible while Ascended. Does that mean dual wielding? Probably a ranged weapon of some kind to take advantage of the large Cipher AoE/range talents?
