Yosharian Posted February 11, 2016 Share Posted February 11, 2016 (edited) So in preparation for the launch of WM2, I'm considering a PotD playthrough. Hell, I might actually finish the game this time. I've been thinking about what my favourite team might be. So my question to you all is, what's your most overpowered, or alternatively just your favourite team composition. It would be awesome if you guys could post explanations of why you picked each class, since I'm looking to learn a bit more about how certain classes work in combination with each other. My own thoughts on each class (although I have not absorbed the 3.0 changes fully yet so these may be obsolete...) are, from strongest to weakest: OP ---- Druid: seems like one of the best classes because of nuking power, some heal/CC, and the ability to go animal form early on which really helps this class' playability. Cipher: I used Grieving Mother in my first playthrough (pre-WM) and holy **** was she overpowered. I haven't played any kind of Cipher recently. Are they still OP? Wizard: it seems common knowledge that Wizards are OP but since I've only used Aloth and only in my first playthrough (stopped around level 9ish) I don't have a lot of experience with it at high levels. Rogue: I have yet to find the perfect build for this class but they are pretty insane at dealing damage, no other class seems to come close. Ranger: Rangers are brilliant now, apparently? I've been using Sagani in my most recent playthrough and she kicks ass. Priest: seems like one of the best support classes really, I don't think anything supports better than a spamming priest. Monk: I have been using the Juggernaut build with Zahua and he kicks so much ass with it. A very fun class. AVERAGE --------------- Fighter: been wanting to try out the Lady of Pain build for quite a while. Fighters seem like they still need love in certain areas, though. Paladin: I only put it in 'average' because I haven't a clue how to make this class shine. I only have experience using Pallegina (lol). BAD ------ Chanter: had a bad experience with this class and gave up on it, just seemed too slow to do anything. Barbarian: very disappointed with this class, mained it last playthrough and gave up towards the end. For a possible party I have been considering a frontline of Monk (Juggernaut) Fighter (Lady of Pain), a second line of Rogue (some kind of melee build) and Ranger (pet build then respec into bow build later on), with a support line of Priest and Wizard/Druid/Cipher. I've been hearing great things about Paladins though, so I was considering trying to fit one in somewhere. Also, it's so hard to pick between a Wiz, Druid or Cipher. Argh. Anyway I hope to see some interesting ideas from you guys on your favourite PotD (or otherwise) party combinations...
