Fists on a Contemplative? Weapon choices in general for Contemplative and Swashbuckler...


Recommended Posts

So, I made Xoti a Contemplative this time and she pulls her weight so much better than as a pure Priest (did the Drake bounty at level 4 without cheese and she got the kill - Eder and Serafen got knocked out tho).

I am just wondering if I should focus on her fists (as in forever main weapon) or give her other weapons in the long run. Will fists still be strong later even if I am missing 2 PL? I already stole obtained Tuitilo's Palm just for the heck of it. Or should I give her something completely different? If fists, what would be a good backup weapon type for her?

and in general. Is DW still (dps-)king like in poe1? So far (level 8 ) it seems that way, but maybe that will change later? Siccing Eder on mages is great even if I only got Skrim and a Fine Dagger for him so far.
Should I keep him dual-wielding or is he better off with SnS or 2handed stuff? I already got Serafen with Morning Stars as recommended in my other thread :)

I think you might need a slashing or piercing damage in weapon switch for enemies with strong armor against bludgeoning?  So maybe have a sword in other slot which deals best of slashing/pierce?  Not certain because also just starting out in Deadfire.

With Potion of Elevation, you'll have Legendary+ Quality fists for important fights.  Fists are good pure DPS weapon and Fist + Tuotilio's is good middle way between dual wielding and Sword & Board.

So Fists are quite viable, with of course some backup situational weapon. Swords are nice to cover all type of damages. I'm thinking about Mowdyr with Griffin Blade or a shield.

Poption of Elevation? I can't find it on the wiki... What does it do?

 

Though 2handed Xoti with Morning Star sounds nice too... Especially as Serafen would be the one to ditch if I wanted someone else xD

Fists are strong in raw damage. But the various weapons have so many different awesome effects that I find it hard to give them up.

Of course, Scordeo's Edge saber is kinda meta for a monk MC - particularly one who can extend his buffs.
