Could you maybe add how you play this character? Like what is the underlying idea and how do you usually use his abilities?

So basically the "why and how"?

this Setup is only about speed and damage.

I'm working with AI a lot.

frenzy only at health above 50%, no might inspiration and enemy in melee range
second wind and healing potions at health at 50%. same to xoti (in second line with consecrated ground, gaun's pledge, holy radiance and health spells).

stealing devils breastplate soon as possible and entchant it with "devil's due" for the 2 health per 3s on crit. With this backup you are nearly safe with health. For heavy encaunter I use glaszed chops (+30% healing received). On the top kills restores your health (Abraham).

Deflection is the main problem. At level 10 you reach 42 with frenzy. "No Pity for the lost" (first eothas talk) raised your deflection for 5 points. (btw. level 10 is always my preference level, don't know why)

My preference quests midgame are "the cornett's call" (Ondra temple), the fight about min's furtune against mob of rotghasts and the two fights against shadows and ghosts. All of them are level 8-9. And this setup was really, really fast.

This setup is performed for speed and crits. Early game you doesn't crit alot. "Engwithan digsite" was the hardest fight. ****ty deflection, ****ty armor without fire bonus, not a hell of healing potions. In early game this is the only battle I used my ghost pet.

But at level 10 with "hunter's claw" and "marked for the hunt" you reach an acc of 92 both hands. At hard difficult it's enough for a lot of criticals. Against mobs "bloodlust" is nearly permanent. Your area of effect is very nice with high int. With "wit of death's herald" (first gods talk) you reach int 23. At this level you should become griffin's blade. Then griffin's blade triggers many dazed enemies (AoE), so enemies cannot engage you. Later a second source for dazed enemies will be "Leap". Additional all the crits triggers knockdowns (gatecrashers). Later with "binding roots" and upgrade you immobilized your enemies in an nice AoE. In optimal case you afllicted your enemies in might, dexterity, perception and resolve - all AoE of course. This will raise your crit chance even further.

"Tempest" from Scordeo's egde and "Hound's Speed" from Griffins Blade will raise your action speed, with the addionsal chance for scordeo's to recover instantly.

The morning star proficiency allows you to decreased enemies deflection, with your high intelligence and dexterity you are fast enough to switch back to your main weapons and hit one or two times. But this is only against single targets.

I was thinking about "Modwyr", but the last entchantments "true independence" takes too long for me. Sure you can take another armor, but Carocs is fine enough.



At level 7 you have enough bonds to cast your ghost, but without companion abilities it will die very quickly. so the most points are going into "binding roots".

Frenzy duration is with int 23 ca 30 seconds, but barbaric blow used the most of your rage points. Later with barbaric smash they will be refunded on kill.

Party Set Up:

Eder Swashbuckler early game nearly allway shield and board with warrior stance, activated "block" and Glatdiators Sword for maximized deflection as tank, later two handed.

Xoti Contemplative early game with pistols, later with hand mortars. In "consecrated Ground"-range to your first line.

Early game till Sayuka Serafen barbar with pistols.

After Suyake Serafen is replaced by Pallegina Herold, mainly Pistol setup, for hard encounters with shield (Lethandria's Devotion for more healing ) and sword.

Aloth Spellblade for Raw Dots. Marux Amanth in offhand


sorry for my bad english - my last english lession was 25 years ago. :)
