Cyrus_Blackfeather Posted May 26, 2018 Share Posted May 26, 2018 Hey guys; So I'm currently brainstorming a Bleak Walker/Fighter (Maybe Devoted if I could ever decide between swords and sabres). I want this to be for PotD and I want to use companions, and I also don't want to min-max (Just because I don't want a character that's a Resolve-less coward because that doesn't really make sense for a Paladin that focuses on intimidation and fear tactics). The build I have right now, not counting bonuses from my background like Gift of the Machine or Effigy's Resentment (Which will give me about +15% buff duration and +1 Con - sorry Zahua) looks like this. Human Deadfire Archipelago - Mercenary Active Skills - Athletics/Alchemy Passive Skills - Insight/Streetwise or Intimidate Attributes: 20 Might (8 points + 1 Human racial bonus +1 Gift of the Machine) 13 Constitution (3 points) 10 Dexterity (+1 point from Deadfire Background) 16 Perception (6 points) 10 Intellect 10 Resolve (+1 Human racial bonus) Might would then, assuming Gift of the Machine works, go up to 20, while Constitution would go up to 14 from sacrificing Zahua and then another 5% from Gift of the Machine (So, effectively, 15 - but since Con isn't checked in dialogue seemingly at all that probably wouldn't matter). I've also considered bumping Intellect slightly to better synergize with the bonus to saccing Zahua (It's going to be the only gamey decision I make, but I can honestly justify it by virtue of him serving no functional purpose to my Watcher). The Intellect build looks something like this... 20 Might 10 Con 10 Dex 16 Perception 13 Intellect 10 Resolve The only issue here is that this doesn't give me nearly enough Intellect to pass most of the checks in the game, but it DOES give me an effective 16 points in Intellect in regards to buff duration. I've also considered playing around with putting those stray three points into Dexterity, or even Resolve. TL;DR: What do you think of the build in its purest concept (High Might/Perception, 1 point each shaved off of Resolve and Dexterity for 3 extra points to play around with) and where should I put those extra points for best results? Would it be worth it to take a few points off of Might so that I could have higher Dexterity/Constitution/Intellect? People seem to universally keep Resolve pretty low, the only reason I'm not dropping it to 3 is because I don't like the idea of my character being THAT deficient in a particular stat. Is it worth pumping Resolve or are all of the dialogue checks that would have required it in the first game instead covered by the 'talky' passive skills? Because of the Fighter's access to Recovery reduction skills, is Dexterity really that necessary for 'em? Is the Devil of Caroc's Breastplate so necessary that it's worth making a completely illogical decision in order to get it, or can I safely let the poor woman have her revenge and get something else?
