Slapstick87 Posted April 10, 2015 Share Posted April 10, 2015 (edited) So I've been playing with this party: Tanks: Edér/Pallegina, DPS: Me(Ranged Cipher)/Aloth/Hiravias, Support: Durance on my story playthrough. Hard has been tough at times, but only because my DPS gets massacred the instant I get swarmed or AOE'd down (I f*'in hate shades and fampyrs). The tanks never ever die, they're not the problem. Gearing up for a Trials of Iron run (possibly even PotD. That would be cool), I want and need to do something different. Thought nr. 1: I dislike the tanks because they never *do* anything. They just stand there, don't die, and tie up enemies. I know that's what they're supposed to do, but it feels a bit boring that nothing ever happens around the tanks *at all*. Can't they be used for dmg as well? Thought nr. 2: I need off-tanks. I'm also a fan of using classes creatively. Thought nr. 3: I really need to stop playing PoE 24/7 So I'm considering running with 4 melee semi-tank, semi-dps characters, and 2 rear support. Or maybe 3 + 3... P.S. I don't really fancy Chanters or Rangers much. Idea: Front Wall Cipher Fire Godlike, Sanguine Armor. Gaun's Share + whatever I find, probably mace. Barbarian Fire Godlike. Medium Armor. Dual Wield Oidrecht and Azureith's Stiletto. I'll call him cheesemaster and abuse OSA :D Monk (probably moon godlike) of some sort - never played, but heard good things at the forum - suggestions welcome! Druid - Coastal Amaua? - Best available armor, shield, 1H weapon. Rear Guard Orlan Ranged Rogue - Probably Persistance or Cloudpiercer. Not sure about Hunting- or Warbow Priest (of Wael for Rod/Quarterstaff)- because duh' Backup Idea: Front Wall: Cipher Fire/Moon godlike tank Rogue retaliation/drain tank Monk Rear Guard: Barbarian glasscannon with pike Druid Wizard ------ So any comments on my ideas? I'm also wondering a) How do I build/equip a monk? b) Do I really *need* unkillable tanks for PotD? c) Anyone tried running without a healer successfully?
