Cyrus_Blackfeather Posted May 26, 2018 Share Posted May 26, 2018 Hey guys, So, I've been brainstorming an idea for a Bleak Walker Paladin as a tank for PotD. I'm trying to decide between a Templar or a Crusader. I opted to list the pros and cons of each, followed by a build that I was intending to run. Then I was hoping to get some feedback from you guys regarding which you think would play better. Crusader - Pros: Much more defensive, access fo Disciplined Strikes/Barrage to improve accuracy. Interrupts, Armored Grace and Mob Stance to deal with heavy armor recovery time, and some really nice passives to boost damage with proficient weapons. Cons: No AoE to speak of until later (And that's on kill). Templar - Pros: Can run debuffing/damaging Priest spells while Xoti buffs, Magran Priests apparently get the most class specific dialogue choices of any class in the game. I'd have a nice AoE heal that also dealt with Vessels, which are fairly common earlier on. I get Scion of Flame for Penetration on fire attacks. Cons: I miss out on all of the cool stuff that Fighter has, and there's quite a lot of that. The Build: Race - Human Culture - Deadfire (For extra dialogue checks) Background - Mercenary Active Skills: Athletics/Alchemy Passive Skills: Insight/Intimidate Stats: Might - 18 (7 points + 1 Human racial) Constitution - 14 (4 points) Dexterity - 10 (9 + 1 Deadfire Culture) Perception - 16 (6 points) Intellect - 10 Resolve - 10 (9 + 1 Human racial) I'm open for recommendations regarding this build. I'm really nervous having such a low Resolve, but that doesn't seem to be the "Charisma" score of this game anymore, now that we can invest into Intimidate, Bluff, Diplomacy, etc. Deep Faith seems to have my defenses pretty well covered, my main concern is bolstering my hit points. TL;DR: What do you guys think of this build for either a Crusader or a Templar Bleak Walker, and which do you think would be a more enjoyable experience overall? Now that the disposition system has changed, I'm looking forward to playing a character that isn't necessarily a nice person most of the time.
