So what can be done to increase the penetration of the Dragon Thrashed attacks, or is it just based on PL similar to spells?
And I'm guessing single class Chanter for a higher power level / progression would be the only way to make this worthwhile? Or would a multi-class bring some synergies to Dragon Thrashed?
I love having attrition battles and building my party that way for higher difficulty with the unlimited resource classes.
Well, as one of the chanterphiles on the board, you could try bellower.
He has increased accuracy on invocations, higher pen, duration and damage.
Bellower is in flux though, as one of the abilites does nothing and I'm expecting a bugpatch to correct this. But as a tanky defensive debuffing sword'n'boarder he does pretty well.
I did a bit of combat simulation between skald and bellower with offensive invocations, and the results were pretty unsurprising.
Bellower is not exactly bursty - no chanter is - but his invocations can be pretty decisive.
Onehanded skald is more sustained in damage due to more invocations, but also more misses and lower damage pr invocation.
Skald does good weapon damage, whereas bellower will miss more with his weapon. Bellower is more sturdy though, and fights more prolonged. In some cases the bellower fights were over pretty quicly due to good attack rolls with invocations.
Skald had a pretty sustained accumulated damage curve, whereas bellowers accumulated damage was like watching a staircase from the side.
Edit: Let's not talk about troubadour. It's a vailian concept, and I'm not saying that vailians are immoral, but gamefiles show that a discarded quest had you decide what you would do with Pallegina, as you discovered she was the oblivious carrier of avian flu, meant to eradicate the huana. Those valian wizards are devious.
