Good morning guys, I've started my journey on POE2 by using a Bleak Walker from POE1

I became a Spellsword but I wanted to be a Templar of Magran because of the fire, etc.

I would like to know if would be better to be the Herald of Berath or go to the wheel?

 

I decided a spellsword because of all the self buffs that you can get and also, the high defense of being a paladin + flames of devotion inclusing the corrode damage. I'm using as main a superb large shield + Whispers of Yenwood (+ spirits silenced + superb).

second weapon setup is dual wielder (as I was on POE1) using Modwyr + a really nice superb ice Hatchet that I've found killing a Giant of a bounty.

 

I need to know, basically, what are good stats, where to get money and good equipment, who would be a cool party if I don't want to kill Eothas. and also, If I can trust Serafen (which seems to be a good guy).

 

Thanks for any response!

A Spellsword is a Wizard/Rogue.

I guess you mean Arcane Knight (Wizard/Paladin)?

You have to become the Herald of Berath in the opening scenes. If not you will be returned to the wheel, reborn as a rodent and the game is over. :)

Arcane Knight (Wizard/Paladin) is strong class combo. Try Citzal's Spirit Lance + Bleak Walker's Flames of Devotion. ;)

I'm sorry, yeah, I'm at work and a forgot the correct name. Its an Arcane Knight which is real powerful, I got ironskin which was one of my favorite skills from POE1 wizards. I want to get the sacred immolation but seems to be pretty hard to get if you are multiclass; as you're leveling 2 classes at the same time.

As a multiclass you can pick up Sacred Immolation at level 19 I believe. I wouldn't take it though, as you will take something like 90 raw damage per second and die almost instantly. Only way to make it work is to abuse and spam BDD and hope everything is dead before it wears off.

It's 43 dmg per 3 seconds. And if you use Sacred Immolation and then Lay on Hands on yourself it is easy to survive.
Voidward also helps to reduce the self damage (-25%).

It's 43 base damage, which is increased by PL, might and any other increased damage/damage taken modifiers (I was testing on a Nature Godlike Helwalker Votary with Magran's Favor and Sun and Moon - explains a lot). I suppose since we are talking about an Arcane Knight it won't be nearly as bad.
