Hello!

 

I played through the first game as a fighter dual wielding sabres focusing damage dealing talents and I wish to go with similar character in Deadfire. I guess good options would be pure Devoted Fighter, Devoted/Streetfighter, Devoted/Berserker or Devoted/any monk. I am not sure of the subclasses, but these seem good for dealing damage in melee.

What are the differences between the options mentioned above? Which one is the most effective? Or would even 2h be a strong alternative to dual wielding?

I hope to see as many opinions about this as possible. Any build suggestions and other tips would be absolutely welcome!

I'm certainly no expert on Fighters, but I'll do my best.

Devoted: Increased Pen and Crit damage at the cost of Accuracy when not using chosen weapon. Since you mentioned dual wielding sabres, I'm going to go with that (Also, there are like, so many sabres in Deadfire, so you'll have plenty to choose).

For a Devoted/Streetfighter you would want to wear less armour (preferably lighter) and invest lots of skill points into both Alchemy and Stealth as you're going to "Bloody" a lot. 

Devoted/Beserker: I would pick Might, Intellect and Constitution. Might and Constitution because you want your watcher to stay alive and hit like a truck. Intellect because it affects the range of Carnage. You might want to choose 2h specialisation because the great sword Sanguine Harvest can do wonders. If dual wielding, go for Kapana Taga. I would also advise regenerative items because Beserkers take constant damage. 

Devoted/Monk: Honestly, monks are fun and easy to multi class with, so pick whatever sounds fun. Build-wise, check out this one out: https://forums.obsidian.net/topic/100743-build-the-tornado-fightermonk/

You can also scour the build forum. They have plenty of people who have well-constructed builds. Hope this helps!

Thank you for your response!

 

I think I'll test out both the Brawler and the Swashbuckler multiclasses while saving Barbarian for another playthrough. From what I've gathered Monk provides Fighter with interesting abilities and buffs (and crushing damage secondary weapon for Devoted) while Rogue seems to provide nice bonus damage in the form of Sneak Attack and tons of full attacks for dual wielding sabres (additionally Gouging Strike seems fantastic for big baddies as the duration seems to last the whole encounter). I even remember using the Apprentice Sneak Attack to surprisingly good effect in the first PoE so with the multiclass it must be even better. However, I feel it's better to ditch the Streetfighter as getting flanked may prove problematic with Eder in my party tanking and hogging engagements. Not choosing Streetfighter makes it easier to sneak around the enemy backline to take out problematic threats if needed. I'll look into the Trickster and no subclass Rogue.
