1TTFFSSE Posted August 2, 2018 Share Posted August 2, 2018 (edited) This is the archetypal "healer" we generally associate with rpgs. Ironically in PoE2 it is the druid lifegiver sublass that fits this role the best and not the priest class. It is good in a party with a more offensive minded, rather than just a "meatshield" tank and several glass cannony damage dealers. It allows those party members to do what they do best - deal damage, while the Theurge will keep them up and their defenses buffed. The Healbot itself will do very little damage but will summon dragons to support the party in addition to healing and buffing defenses. The fact this toon does not need perception really allows for a more efficient distribution in a party between the dedicated healer/buffer (this toon) and the tank(s) and damage dealers. Race: Coastal Aumauna or Nature Godlike Druid Lifegiver + Chanter Troubadour Skill Points base Might - Max, Con - 8, Dex -14, Perc -10, Int - Max +1 Vaillain , Res - 8 Mechanics to 9/10, some Athletics for Second Wind, rest in Alchemy Max Religion! - we will use Xoti's sickle and urgent harvest for speed (recommended) I use high mechanics on this toon in a party because that way he can be the trap disabler and free the mechanics skill for other party members to take skill points like alchemy or arcana to deal more damage. We pump Might, Int and some dex because those allow faster and better healing and larger aoes. Since we are not there to "attack" we can ignore perception.

And because Xoti's sickle has relatively low penetration I give my damage dealer's other weapons. Offhand you can use dagger + light shield in case you need to boost defenses and deflection a bit (rare) Armor - any good armor not heavier than +35% recovery time, although an exception can be made for Blackplate. I think the Junvik armor (Hearth Defender) is the best personally. Aloth's is good too if it is free but at 20% light armor it may be too flimsy before it is fully upgraded for a frontliner/offtank Bracers: + might Amulet: +intellect or baubles of the fin rings: protection and overseeing boots: + heal % belt + heal % (physiker's) cloak + deflection Head - none if nature godlike or Heaven's Cacophony (+ int) In the Ai, healing spells are on top anytime anyone is hurt basically. Otherwise, you constantly buff everyone's defenses at the start of a fight with wood skin, + not flame nor thrusted blade. If there is a window where the party members are not taking damage the ai summons a drake or in Tekehu's case a Vine. This toon is keeping my class-cannons up currently in my deadly deadfire Potd+mods run currently. you can briefly see it here supporting the party in this clip Casting stuff like woodskin, summoning a drake and casting moonwell. Basically what its supposed to be doing. Edited August 2, 2018 by 1TTFFSSE 2 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
