Hello everyone :)

 

80+ hours in game - and probably 50 hours spend in character creation and theory crafting ( Loving it )

 

My current idea is to make an arbalast wielding savage build that perhaps will be able to solo veteran+ ( Perhaps with a wingman/wingwoman )

 

Class : Savage ( Barbarian, no subclass / Ranger Sharpshooter )

 

Barbarian for action speed, crit, coolness factor and rp. Sharpshooter for accuracy, and ranged focus of the build in general. And again rp. ( roleplay )

 

Race : Nature Godlike ( Looks & rp reasons mainly )

 

Pet : Boar ( Im aware Bear is the most sturdy of em all, and ranger pets apparently blows - but just look at that toothy chubby bastard! :D

 

Attributes : 18 Might, 8 Con, 16 Dex, 18, Perception, 14 Int, 4 Resolve ( Any suggestions? )

 

Weapons of choice : Arbalast - Animation, modal and badass! / Morning Star, crushing and eh.. savage ( Any suggestions to 2h melee? )

 

Unique Arbalast : Spearcaster

 

Barbarian :

 

Active abilities :

 

Frenzy to Blood frenzy to Bloodstorm ( Speed, DoT and Strong & Fit - afaik, Strong & Fit should activate the Nature Godlike racial - correct? )

Barbaric blow to Crushing blow ( Im abit confused if recovery is affecting my Arbalast - so not sure if this the best pick )

Savage Defiance, sofar i prefer the upgrade with lower cost.

 

Passive abilities :

 

Blooded

Two handed style

Bloodlust

Bloody slaugther

Blood Thirst ( If this works with Arbalast )

 

Sharpshooter :

 

Active abilities :

 

Marked prey - Marked for the hunt

Wounding shot - Accurate wounding shot

Thorny roots

Evasive Roll - Evasive Fire ( Love this one )

 

Passive abilities :

 

Resilient companion

Marksman

Gunner

Protective companion - Stalkers link ( Unsure if this will be worth it, considering the life expentency of my toothy buddy )

Driving flight

Uncanny luck

Survival of the fittest

 

Suggestions, ideas and input are more then welcome. Especially regarding gear/items besides Spearcaster.

Thanks upfront!

Blood Thirst does not do anything for reloading weapons (like Arbalest).

 

Frenzy and Bloodlust do work.

 

Can't remember if Bloody Slaughter is melee only or not, sorry.

 

 

It may be that you can trigger Blood Storm with Thorny Roots (never tried).

Too bad with Blood thirst, but nice the other two work. Guess ill find out the hard way regarding Bloody slaugther.

 

So far i have taken 4 points from might and put into dex & int instead in a 2 and 2 ratio.

Might have to discard my toothy chubby buddy for the bear instead - hopefully, it will make a little difference.

That, or im guessing ill have to use an adventurer as a sidekick at some point for tanking purpose.

Why not Berserker? Don't you like Crits and Penetration? On a single-target ranged build Confused isn't even a big issue (at least prior to Driving Flight and Roots). In any case, it's fairly simple to mitigate.

Because Berserkers hit & crit bonus is for melee - and the self hp dot while frenzied is very unwanted on my 8 con ranged character.

The bonus pen would be nice ofc... but confused + selfdot = No thanks, for me atleast.

never get how blood thirst work

kill with skill doesn't clear cooldown

kill with spell sometimes do

kill with auto attack seems to always work
