Hey everyone, I've been reading these forums for a long time now, but am finally getting ready for my first playthrough of the game on the Path of the damned difficulty. I'm looking forward to the challenge, but I need some help with strategies and understanding some of the deeper mechanics of the game. I'm planning on Running a basic 6-man party, with my main character taking the role of AoE DPS. I was thinking about either wizard or druid-- mainly because of my familiarity with how they work and what the best gear for them is.
My first question is, what works better on POTD as a pure AoE damage dealer, a wizard or a druid?
Second, how exactly are stronghold turns calculated- I remember seeing a discussion about this in an earlier thread, but I can't seem to find it. Is it based off of progression in the main questline, or does it also progress based on the completion of tasks and side quests?
Thanks for the input, and I'm really looking forward to becoming a more active member of this community!
