hi guys :) trying to make a cipher with a high resolve stat i hear it does change the dialogue options in game but not sure how to appoint the points and not even sure how high resolve should be to make a difference in game...i also hear you can go melee or range with cipher or kinda use both to certain extent which sounds fun cause versatile so i would really love some suggestions :) it would be great if he wasnt totally squishe (but i read ciphers are ) ^^

anyway any suggestion will be greatly appreciated thanks in advance

Melee cipher is incredibly lackluster unless you REALLY know what you're doing and where/how to get the right items ASAP. Generally, a ranged Cipher will be far more useful and do far more damage.

 

Anyways, there are three stats that open up a lot of extra dialogue option: Perception, Intelligence, Resolve. Might, Constitution, and Dexterity each open up a few dialogue options, but less than the others. Also, skills provide dialogue options, especially Lore, Stealth, and Survival. It's impossible to have every dialogue option with one character.

 

For a Cipher with high resolve:

Go with Human (sub-race doesn't matter).

For powers, take Eyestrike and Whisper of Treason.

Might 19, Constitution 3, Dexterity 18, Perception 3, Intelligence 18, Resolve 16.

 

That's high enough resolve to get ~90% of the Resolve based dialogues.

 

For a Cipher with high perception (and a slightly better character, thanks to racial passive):

Go with Wood Elf. Same power selection.

Might 18, Constitution 3, Dexterity 19, Perception 16, Intelligence 18, Resolve 3.

 

 

For either one:

Then choose one the following cultures: Deadfire Archipelago (+1 Dex), Old Vailia (+1 Int), The Living Lands (+1 Might).

For feats, go with Biting Whip, Draining Whip, Gunner, Marksman, Weapon Focus (Ruffian), Penetrating Shot.

Get an arbalest or arquebus ASAP (recruit Kana and give his gun to the cipher is the easiest way).

Once you're past Caed Nua, go east from the Woodend Plains until you reach Dyrford Village. Get the quest "A Farmer's Plight", and then either kill the Ogre or recruit the Ogre abd pay the farmer 400cp. This will get you the Lead Splitter blunderbuss. Best weapon in game for a ranged Cipher.
