FlintlockJazz Posted February 27, 2017 Share Posted February 27, 2017 With the discovery that Alchemy is going to be a skill in Pillars 2 and that it will work with explosives, I have decided that I am going to do a Pillars 1 playthrough with a character that would use such skills (well actually I was already going to do it, this just confirmed it). Naturally the Scientist background is a given, but what class? A Cipher could work, they also got Lore and Mechanics (the two skills you get from Scientist), and fits well considering one of the choices for Scientist is that you used it to solve crimes (making you a detective), plus you got characters like Galvino who are similar in concept, though he's more animancer than alchemist. Rogue, actually, works well too in concept, I can easily imagine the Rogue skillset fitting for scholarly sorts actually, and fits well again the detective side of things. Chanter too, in a Kana-esque way. Wizard and Druid of course works, though is perhaps a bit too obvious, a bit too stereotypical. Ranger as a Witcher type maybe. Paladin and Barbarian I don't see being a good fit conceptually. Priest, Fighter and Monk could work but are kinda meh, feels more of a side thing for them. I am currently leaning more to Cipher at the moment, though a large part of that is simply because I don't really play Ciphers much anyway and want to correct that. What do YOU think the class of a crazy bomber type would be?
