So my current TC play through is with a Darcozzi Paladini as the Watcher. The build "Forward Observer" as I am calling it is because he designates targets for the heavy melee party by increasing their ACC by large amounts. A Forward Observer or FO's job in modern and not so modern militaries is and was to spot for Artillery, Mortars and Aircraft. This would increase the accuracy of these weapons. As most of the time the gun crews or pilots cannot see the target. The FO in POE does this in four ways. First by taking Zealous Focus and giving the party +6 ACC and hit to graze. Second, by taking the Liberating Exhortation talent Inspiring Liberation which gives party members a +10 buff to ACC which can stack to +20Third by taking Coordinated Attacks at level 7 or 9. This will enable the closest damage dealer usually a Monk, Rogue or Barb to further increase his ACC by +10. Lastly, he will be using either shame or Glory which has the marking buff which does the same thing as Coordinating attacks (tested it stacks. Thanks to Boer!) OR by taking Strike Hard which debuffs the enemy with Disorienting reducing all defenses by 5 and there for giving the entire party (probably better then marking) a +5 to ACC.
The ONLY thing I am not sure about is for my Paladin taking Flames of Devotion or Reviving Exhortation. I am for the first time in a few playthroughs thinking of skipping FoD and it's because of my party build and the fact that I am playing on Triple Crown. I want the MAX amount of combat revives just incase I get a bad roll or something on a Dragon fight. or other tough fight. I will have a priest resurrect and either a Ress by Pallegina or a Res by Kana. Pallegina's is better as I don't have to wait for 3 Chants but the second is a viable alternative. Is having three combat revives over kill? Build is below
1. Lay on Hands
3. Zealous Focus
5. Flames of Devotion if not taking Reviving. If taking Reviving I will take Liberating here
7. Reviving Exhortation if not taking FoD. If taking FoD Liberating here.
9. Coordinated Attacks
11. Righteous Soul (must have for Dragons, spirits and Fampyrs imo)
13. Sacred Immolation.
