I think this would be one of the classes to achieve the title in an easier, if not cheesier way. It goes without saying that we don't have a clear definition of TCS in Deadfire, so I am just thinking about what TCS meant in the first game. Which is convenient because naming all the isles is impossible without 15 survival... or was it 14?
Buffs are all quick with the exclusion of Lay on Hands stuff(it's a hard choice between Robust and Courageous, to be honest), but we can put that on last. I suspect no AI would be easier for this situation. Scrolls will be the main offensive power--you can reach 15.5(possibly even higher; haven't quite looked into it) pen on scrolls which makes them quite the hard hitter, and with Unbending Trunk we would love to sit in our own nukes, if we get hit by them, that is. Luckily, reflex debuff is available on Sun and Moon, which also benefits from Ring of Focused Flame, and all of that benefits our scrooollz. So happy days! The build can also stack healing done and received, so one Lay on Hands can top off nearly a full health bar for us. Conqueror Stance + Palladin Aura = +15 accuracy for scroooollz… that's kind of insane, to be honest... if they stack :D. The build also gives us good conversion, and we can use Potion of Perfect Aim which would help with the quantity over quality approach the build is taking. A converted crit from a Great Maelstrom hits quite hard and those make a lot of hits, plus extra damage and armour from... Gilded Enmity(was it)?
I suspect that equipment that downgrades hits and crits would be most welcomed. We have all the resistances available to us because of Crusader gizmos and very good defenses, though stacking Will is still instrumental, imho, because of Arcane Dampener. Personally, I don't think that Deflection would be that big of a deal here, but the more the merrier--I think after buffs the build will end up at around 130-140 which is not that bad.
Is there a God challenge for no respecing, by the way? Because if there isn't the build will be able to do everything in Neketaka with almost no fighting and then just hop into full Arcana for the bounties. And while we can start flinging Maelstroms and Meteor Showers from level 7 onwards, without Unbending Trunk I don't think it's the brightest idea, though not impossible because of all the defenses. Honestly, I am mostly thinking no pause here, lol!
A notable opponent would be the Fire Dragon, but that one is good at isolating herself from you with only 3 Magma Oozes hitting you--if you take that sweet spot at the right side, next to the treasure. There is a fire-immune add to help you, too, and I've actually killed her by using nothing more than a Frost Seeker from that position. I was stacked on Fire armour and the Lay on Hands is enough to keep you alive through her entire health bar. Boring, but doable... and I was curious to see if it will work. It does.
So what do you think? Cheesy as hell, or legit? :D
