Marigoldran Posted January 23, 2019 Share Posted January 23, 2019 (edited) At first I thought he was "less tanky than a herald" and "does less dps than a dps built character". What role does he fill in a party? Why should I include him? The answer is: mage killing. Unlike pure rogues, Swashbucklers can teleport to the enemy backlines and survive a standup fight against multiple opponents. That means you can stick Eder on a mage or a priest and that mage or priest will NEVER cast a spell again. Since most fights are won or lost by how effectively you can crush or interrupt their spellcasters, this means Eder is rather useful despite not being as tanky as a herald or as "DPS" as like a Helwalker/Ascendant. It also helps that an Eder in the enemy backline is the perfect target for Cipher spells like Echoplastic Echoes and Pain Block.
