Zares Posted March 19, 2021 Share Posted March 19, 2021 So I played when the game was released, had short breakes, last time I played when they released Turn Based mode. For some reason I liked multiclasses and also hated them. That was meh especially on my Barbarian, upgrades were so spread out, I had to lvl up a lot, and some of them were unreachable for MC. I liked MC on Wizard (I like an idea of Battlemage) and on Druid, but was always curious if they'd be good SC too, as there are more powerful spells, and my favorite spells would be reachable sooner. I came back because I saw a lot of interesting mods showed up when I was away. Mostly Vetern PotD Enemies, Community Patch and Deadfire Balance Polishing Mod with nerfs. Back then I didn't like broken stuff, cheesing, and super high difficulty with Deadly Deadfire. These three mods made me want to play again, the polishing mod says they made SC more interesting. So with that in mind, what classes could be still interesting to play as a single class? And what classes should still be recommended to be multiclassed? I want to have at least 2 companions in my party and maybe 1 side kick, as I didn't check them out yet. I always liked Eder, already got him, and he's Rogue. I'm thinking Aloth/Fassina and Konstanten/Serafen. Was also going to take Maia, but I don't like her subclass, I mean I want my ranged character to use Bow/Crossbow, not a fan of firearms in this game to be honest, maybe in another run. I'd really like to try SC Barbarian, so that's a must. What about the rest? What's still not recommended to go SC? Asking in general, not current run. Back to my current run: MC: Templar ([off?]Tank/Support hybrid) M15, C15, D15, P14, I16, R15 - I picked +2 to attributes from Berath's Blessings to have more flexibility in building MC and more space for companions. Going Tank (+1 Engagement with Shield from Shieldbearers) with abilities to heal (Lay of Hand/Eothas Priest spells from Priest Subclasses Rebalanced mod). Picked Fire Godlike (I know, no helmets) for RP reasons, and because it was buffed in the Polishing mod. Eder: Rogue - I usually played Eder as a tank, want to try something different and go DPS. Konstanten/Serafen: Barbarian - I really want to try it. Aloth/Fassina: Wizard or Loremaster. Or just create a custom character, not sure. Another ranged DPS as the frontline would be already crowded a little? I like Ranger but not sure if I want to take care of their pet in this run. I always avoided Cipher, as I played it too much in PoE1, but maybe it's time to try it out in Deadfire. I like the idea of melee Cipher (Soul Blade I think?) but... I think I need a ranged dps. Suggestions are welcomed! Can skip Barb for another run if I could get another interesting melee for this run instead. I have never played Monk, melee Cipher, SC Fighter, DPS Chanter. Can also suggest some compositions and/or character ideas for another run. I'd like to maybe RP some Aggressive or Cruel in the next run. Maybe Bleakwalker Paladin and/or corpseating Barb. I also haven't played Rational/Stoic, that's an option too. There's no much flexibility when I'd like to try some companions... I know there is Unity Console, but I remember I had troubles to make it working, even with that updated script file. I remember I had to manually edit something and remove things, and I can't find it now. It'd be nice if you could provide instructions. I'm using Subjectively Better Companion Starting Stats mod instead for now. I can edit attributes in Notepad (do I need to start a new game after changes?), but it'd be hard to change classes as they're not named easily, and by looking into for example Eder Paladin file from PoE2 Deadfire Tweaks mod there's a lot more to add in order to make it work.
