@moderator: Not sure if this should go in the builds section or here, so, if needed, you can move it.
Hey, I'm newish to this type of game (at least the DnD style of character building), but certainly not new to RPGs in general. I also play Tyranny, but the build system is less complex there. I understand the various stats, so, it's not an issue of understanding them, but knowing how to build them well, and also difficulty deciding how best to build them or something.
So, my question is, what builds are recommended for the story companions (as opposed to the hireable build-from-scratch companions)? I'm trying to figure out how best to build (or at least re-spec) them as I've read that they aren't built very optimally, though Aloths stats are pretty good and would be fine with pretty much anything.
I'm currently playing on easy and I have the White March 1 and 2 DLC, running v3.05. My current character is a rogue.
Also, I've looked at the build compilation thread in the build section and found some that might work. I've also looked at this steam guide, however, I was told that that one is overrated, and I've noticed that it's out of date. Oh, and another thing, I've seen in that guide that the guns suck now, but I see a few gun based builds in the build compilation thread.
My thoughts on what I'd like to use, or fits best or something or would work best.
Hearth Orlan Rogue (my character): 'don juan rogue'. This is similar to the Caleb build in the steam guide that I linked.
Aloth: witted wizard (Fits his high int stats)
Durance: 'fire priest', well, he IS a priest of the fire goddess. Though I kind of want a dedicated healer/buffer rather than a damage dealer (potshots are okay though).
Eder: Can't decide on one.
Hiravias: Don't know what build to use.
Sagani: storm and plague caller maybe, not sure.
Kana: chillfog? I think he's more of a support/buff role? Not sure.
Grieving Mother: Controller type? Not sure how her class should be used or what build.
Pallegina: Don't know what build.
OR, should I stop worrying too much and just wing it?
editwhiletyping: Dang preview post keeps eating the links.
