aladytest Posted January 17, 2020 Share Posted January 17, 2020 (edited) I'm currently on a PotD duo run, with a defensive Herald (shieldbearer/troubadour) and a greatsword swashbuckler (devoted/streetfighter). My vision is to tank through most fights, riding the Streetfighter buffs as best as I can as my main source of damage, alongside the occasional offensive invocation. Unfortunately, I've been having trouble getting to the point where I can sustainably survive long fights, as the swashbuckler isn't really that tanky and is prone to getting burst. My question is, are there items I can pick up or details I can try in the build to improve the swashbuckler's survivability? I'm willing to make some concessions on offense to improve defense, though I'd like the spirit of the build to remain. At level 11, I currently have 67 deflection (18 RES, cloak of greater deflection; becomes 87 w/ Vigorous Defense) and 11 base armor (garari cuirass, +Exalted Endurance). Any ways I can improve both, or even alternative ways to improve survivability? Is it basically just heavier armor and a shield? The end goal I guess is to be able to survive anything long enough for the Herald's passive healing (Ancient Memory, Exalted Endurance, Lethandria's Devotion) to kick in - so I guess are there other ways to improve the healing as well? Thanks for your help! Edited January 17, 2020 by aladytest Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
