PotD 4 mele chars party, one 'spellcaster' viable? Advice Please

Recommended Posts

So im planing a PotD second run and i would like to try out the classes i missed out on the first try:

 

Tanks:
Paladin (main-because of disposition bonuses)
Fighter (edar or hierling)

Mele DPS:
Barbarian
Monk

Ranged:

Rogue

Cypher (hierling or Grieving Mother)

 

not sure how much would this party miss Druid aoe dmg and wizard aoe dmg/cc, and healing (since the paladin would be a tank bild with low might)

I think what you're going to miss the most from this build is the support you get from the priest, it really is invaluable in a lot of cases. On PotD melee dps tend to get shredded a lot, so this build isn't really that optimal.

 

In short;

 

Can you beat the game on PotD with that setup? Yes.

 

Is it viable? Not really.

I did the game on path of the damned with a warrior, rogue, barbarian, paladin, chanter, cipher. Very similar to your idea. It's very doable, I just gave everyone a 2 handed with full plate and they all tanked in turns. Outdoor fights were easy, indoors I would form a half circle around doorways rather than block it with just one guy, a 5 v 3 is still a good situation. Only my cypher was ranged, and when I met enemies that would summon monsters n stuff in the backrow to the point where I was in ****, I only lost my cipher ; all 5 others were still in the game for the rescue.
