Ragniz Posted May 6, 2019 Share Posted May 6, 2019 I've been following deadfire turn based beta since it came out and apparently its about to end this week. I've already finished the game on POTD a while ago but I ended up outleveling everything and I lost motivation to play the DLC. This time around I'll use a mod to reduce XP gain That said I have a few questions regarding my party: Are bashing shields any good now? I remember they didn't get any accuracy nor penetration from shield quality so they ended up lagging behind regular weapons after a while., I want to have a kind wayfarer paladin with magran's blessing to heal twice with his flames of devotion. Are paladin/chanter tanks actually good? Both classes lack +engagement slot skills so I can't imagine holding the line with just 2-3 slots from gear, also chants are pretty bad up until PL4. Do you spam summons until you gather up +engagement equipment or what? How are pure ciphers in turn based? I've only played a psion/wizard focusing in CC so I have no idea if sould whip is any good, I want to have a soul blade for the shred powers discount and focus on casting with a reach/ranged weapon for focus gen. Is whispers of the endless paths any good for focus generation or should I stick to arquebus/dual pistols? My planned party so far is: Kind wayfarer/Unbroken tank using shield bash. (I want to try out the shinning beacon upgrade with +40% damage recibed or I would go fighter/chanter instead) Stalker/Arcane trickster to help tank the front line with trickster buffs and using one of the new 2h axes to abuse their +crit damage. (Maybe monk would work better but I found torment reach gamebreaking on another playthrough) Soul blade using whispers of the endless paths and staffs or maybe ranged weapons Blood mage with low might for CC first and damage second with lance of the midwood staff (I think blood sacrifice should let him keep its +2PL up 24/7) Priest of rymgard focusing on party buffs and damage spells.
