What is the highest defensive stats (for all four defenses simultaneously) possible for a single character (without equipment) and what is the build specification for such a character? I read somewhere that a paladin at the highest level has all four defenses at about 140 without any gear (no confirming character build was given). Is that the ultimate defensive build?
I used scientific method in reaching this conclusion. Anyone can replicate my results. 1. Go to the outrageously outdated wiki: http://pillarsofeternity.gamepedia.com/Status_Effects 2. Press "CTRL-F" and type "reflex" 3. Press the "Highlight All" button in the bottom left corner of Firefox window. You will note that there are many more Reflex debuffs than Will and Fortitude ones. Fortitude and WIll ones tend to come on the same effects - Charmed, Sickened, Weakened. Sagani can use Wounding Arrow to inflict Hobbled, which reduces Reflex and makes the target susceptible to Binding Roots. She can also use Stunning Arrows. Hiravius can use Sunbeam, which blinds and further reduces Reflex. There ARE some spells which target mental stats in a sneaky way, for example Miasma of Dullmindness simply drains -10 from three stats.
The Wild Orlan racial got me thinking: when do you start seeing significant amount of Will attacks/spells? I've been starting up PotD+Expert (sometimes with Trial of Iron) playthroughs to test out builds for the early game, and the first major defense that really gets tested is Fortitude (phantom stunlocks). I'm assuming Will defenses are primarily checked against Charm and Dominate type spells. What other significant (in terms of frequency and/or magnitude) tests of Will can I expect to encounter further along in the game?
