What the heck about "the Jedi in a spiritual sense of being connected to all living things"? Where did you get this?
There is no emotion, there is peace.
There is no ignorance, there is knowledge.
There is no passion, there is serenity.
There is no chaos, there is harmony.
There is no death, there is the Force.
It's a MONK in all senses.
Monk\Cipher is a great "Jedi" concept.
Forget about Druid\Cipher, they don't synergies with each other. Believe me, i've tried.
Jedis are not nature warriors or nature wardens. They are peacekeepers and sentinels.
If you wanna create some "nature" Jedi, try Druid\Paladin or Druid\Fighter.
I "got this" from Yoda's speech in The Empire Strikes Back that I linked in the OP:
"For my ally is the Force, and a powerful ally it is. Life creates it, makes it grow. Its energy surrounds us and binds us. Luminous beings are we, not this crude matter. You must feel the Force around you; here, between you, me, the tree, the rock, everywhere, yes. Even between the land and the ship."
Yes, Monk would be pretty sweet, but I was looking more to take my initial character who was a Cipher in PoE1 and add a spiritual dimension to them that would synergize well with the Mystic background and make her more distinct from Ydwin, while not stealing Vatnir's thunder by being a priest either. I understand it may not synergize well, but it DOES seem cool, especially given the multiclass name is Oracle, which makes sense given the Mystic background can have visions from time to time. The Green Knight actually was part of the inspiration for this concept!
So, if you take a Lifegiver, opening levels look a little like:
Sunbeam, Nature's Bounty [I prefer Animist and taking Nature's Mark]
Whispers of Treason [Too good not to take, could also do Tenuous Grasp]
Iron Will [Kind of useless at this level, but should eventually pay dividends]
The Moon's Light, and either Woodskin [High Pierce AR is great!] or Taste of the Hunt
Battles roll\ out like this ...
- Eder takes the heat
- Little Green Jedi charms or confuses someone to take the heat off
- Little Green Jedi drops two Sunbeams on the bad guys - can't emphasize enough how good Sunbeam is
- Blinded bad guys are easy to hit - melee crits with Saber ensue
- Hit Ascended status and keep killing
- Shift to cat form when needed
I played a Wild Orlan (green colored!), max perception, high dexterity, moderate Might, moderate Intelligence, dump resolve. Animist/Ascendant. Fun little build. I may keep playing it.
This is really helpful, thank you! And nice one with the Orlan "Yoda!"
