I started a new playthrough to try out turn based mode. Veteran difficulty, all upscaling. I could use some help deciding who to take as companions and developing the builds.
I do like suggestions on gear for each build as well but I do not want a build that is all about getting a specific weapon or gear combo to "make the build work." I have too much fun trying out new weapons and armor when I find them to stick with one fixed weapon which is why I couldn't bring myself to take Devoted
I'm kinda torn between sticking with what I know works and trying something new. For example, Pallegina is crazy good as a Crusader but I keep hearing Herald is fantastic too. I've never had much luck getting Chanter to work well but I would maybe like to give it a try. Same for Tekehu, he was awesome as pure Druid but is Theurge good for him? Do I want two Chanter multiclasses? Cipher is another class I haven't loved in the past but I'm tempted to give another try if I get a good build.
I have only played through Port Maje so far but I'm finding spellcasting much more frustrating in turn based. Targets tend to move or die before spell is actually cast.
Here are my thoughts and questions, any suggestions are appreciated...
Watcher: Battlemage (no subclasses)
- Can't decide between Dual Wield (maybe Modwyr & Duskfall) or Two Handed (WotEP or Spirit Lance maybe).
- Can't decide on class combo. I like him as pure druid for awesome Foe only AOE and healing but wondering if I should give Theurge a try? His subclass can't summon, how bad is that?
- I want her to be a sort of tank / support / passive healing. I was thinking either 2-Handed (Twinned Eel maybe) or sword and shield (I know Lethandria's Devotion is good) but I think she is pretty tough even without a shield so maybe 2-h would be more damage? I know Crusader is awesome for this role but should I try Herald? I know I would miss Armored Grace and the good Fighter passives but I don't really know if Chanter has equally good stuff to offer this build?
- I made her a Geomancer last time and didn't like it so I'd like to try Scout for a ranged DPS build. What type of gun is best for her? Any specific gear I should look for?
Other - I will likely rotate the last spot in and out for companion quests but would love suggestions on who might best round out this group. Especially any good sidekicks since I haven't really used them much. Ydwin or Rekke maybe? I used Fassina as a Sorcerer in my first playthrough and she was amazing. Great support class with plenty of healing from druid side and great damage from wizard side but I don't think I need her with Tekehu already serving basically the same role.
Thanks for your suggestions!
