Grateful for you sharing your time and Gravity.  May you ask the Goddess to eternally alight your path.


Please feel free to criticize my planned party.  According to many Fighters are better tanks simply for the engagements.  However being a Paladin, and the non-rogue dps to be ranged, is of want by me.  Other than that everything is changeable.

Party should easily handle PotD. Good weapon choices.

Seems solid overall. I do question the choice of Larder Door, the bashing actually lowers your dps since it's quite weak and replaces a weapon attack, especially if you don't utilize full attacks via FoD. Early on I would always prefer Outworn Buckler as a Paladin on PotD. Later I would go for Redfield or Little Savior. If you still want to bash you could go for Badgradr's Barricade, but that might be best saved for your Rogue, which would be nice to capitalize on all the Full Attacks they have. For maximum party support you can use Outworn Buckler on your Paladin and Little Savior on your Rogue (or any other shield user, preferably with high int).

Yeah, op definitely has something for god like slaves.... Perhaps the party is a bit light on crowd control, aoe damage, Barb or Monk could work well there, but it isn't a big deal. (I'm also biased.)
