Hey there fairly new to the game, been looking around at builds and such and playing a little on my own getting up to Kana.

I've been abit on the fence about builds and such though seeing what will be viable in the long run, I own both White Marches so I cap at 16 I think. I'm adamant about playing on Path of the damned and it doesn't seem all that bad for me at the minute, a few wipes but once I had Eder in there things picked up.

 

I was running this before

Human - Shieldbearer - Living Lands

Might 20

Constitution 3 (This really hurt for a while but got past it eventually)

Dexterity 3 (Slooooooow)

Perception 18

Intellect 15

Resolve 19

 

Looking at what's around none of this synergies well at all. I've heard about the Wayfarer's though I think Shieldbearer's were just what I was attracted to RP wise.

 

Basically I want to run a Greatsword with backup Arquebus etc. Who basically buffs his teamates slightly with heals and auras, doesn't have to be over the top. Hence just leaving intellect at 15 for dialogue and abit of AOE.

 

Abilities wise Im open to suggestions I know about Strange Mercy and Lay on hands and that's about it aswell as some proficiency talents. I'm fine with a bit of squishiness if I can get the healing off or just back off and become a gunner etc. This doesn't have to be min/maxy but just wondering what will get me through to the end. At the minute Constitution and Dexterity are a hard sell on me but I'm worried about dumping resolve since I think it might have been the only reason along with the outworn buckler that I even reached Kana.

 

Any help is appreciated, Cheers.

Your stats would work great as a tank with shield, not two handed. :)

Less Resolve more Dex.

Aye it felt abit silly to focus on a greatsword if he was only swinging it once an hour. I did respec briefly to try a full on tank and it was working wonderful but I hate it when I'm a frontliner dealing 2 damage a strike. It doesn't feel very uh... crusadery.

 

I forgot to mention the sword I want to use is Tidefall. And any Arquebus will do if it punches as hard as a toddler falling down a flight of stairs or something.

 

So I'm thinking of rocking

Human - Paladin - Wayfarer - Living Lands

Mig 20

Con 3

Dex 12

Perception 18

Int 15

Resolve 10

 

If 2 Dex is negligible then I might pump 2 into Con to bring me back into line abit. It's a shame since the Paladin relies on quite a few stats and the greatsword doesn't fall into those stats so much.

Stats look good.

Remember that paladin's main damage will be Sacred Immolation on level 13 and to use your pistols with FoD at combat start.

Cheers for the help dude, I read later on Intellect buffs come aplenty from some items and an in in Divinity Bay so I rolled this if I feel my AOE isn't up to snuff or some conversations need some thinking power.

 

Mig 20

Con 3

Dex 18 +2 (I remember some plus 2 gloves lying around too I'll use for awhile)

Per 18

Int 10 +2 (That hat from drunken boat lady and the sad crew bridge guys)

Res 10

I am currently running a Paladin similar to yours, albeit with a shield.  Greatswords are probably fine.  If it were me, I think my low level build would look a little like this:

 

Island Aumana [For the extra weapon slot / carry two Arquebuses]

 

Mig 20

Con 10

Dex 10

Perception 10

Int 18

Resolve 10

 

Level 1: Lay of Hands

Rationale: Best heal in the game.  It's amazing.

 

Level 2: Veteran's Recovery OR Weapon Focus: Soldier 

Rationale: If you're not using a shield Veteran's Recovery will keep you alive, and it's amazing with high Might / high Int.  If accuracy is bugging you, you could take Weapon Focus instead.

 

Level 3: Zealous Endurance.  

Rationale: The +3 DR doesn't stack with Ale, which sucks.  But the 15% hit-to-graze conversion is amazing.  

 

Level 4: Veteran's Recovery OR Weapon Focus: Soldier 

Rationale: Whatever you didn't pick last time.

 

Level 5: Flames of Devotion

Rationale: Packs a punch for your Arquebus.

 

Everything after that is flavor.  You could probably cut your CON to 3 if you're comfortable with doing so, I personally didn't but your mileage may vary.
