Forechosen Posted March 31, 2020 Share Posted March 31, 2020 (edited) Hey guys, So, I'm kinda new to Pillars of Eternity - I've read an awful lot about it, and I've been playing D&D and Infinity Engine games all my life so I've got a (sort of) fair grasp of the rules. However, for the life of me I can't work out how to accomplish the following build- and the last thing I want to do is re-roll my character lots, as that completely dampens my enthusiasm for the game. So ideally, I'd like a damage focused 'glass cannon' - 'pirate' build. Sword in one hand (Sabre or Rapier) - and a pistol in the other hand (not a blunderbuss or anything else - just a pistol). My questions are, really: 1) Is this 'character fantasy' feasible to play? If this is anything like most games, I imagine more-or-less any builds work on the easier difficulties, but how about the higher ones? 2) How would I go about fulfilling this 'fantasy' in-game? I'm pretty much set on rolling either a Rogue or a Fighter (with a slight preference for Fighter for RP reasons) - would anybody be kind enough to explain the pros and cons of Fighters/Rogues, in direct relation to a Sword-Pistol-DPS-build? 3) If this build isn't feasible, would a more conventional dual wield Sword- [Other Melee Weapon] be a much better idea? If so, again, Fighter or Rogue? I've no interest in absolute min-maxing, I just don't want to be completely ruining my gameplay by attempting to force a sub-par build. I hope what I've said makes some sense. Thanks very much for reading! Edited March 31, 2020 by Forechosen Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
