Streethfighter/Begulier or Soul Blade seems nice for solo damage spike. Spamming Phatom Foes (to get enemies "Flanked") and Mind Afflicted powers will allow you to get full advatage of crazy damage bonuses that Streetfighter has:

"Bonus: -50% Recovery time +50% Damage against Flanked, Mind Afflicted or Body Afflicted targets, when the street fighter is Flanked or Bloodied. +100% Weapon Crit damage when the Streetfighter is both Flanked and Bloodied"

So you can get crazy -50% Recovery, 50% Damage and 100% Weapon Crit damage.

 

 

 

Phantom Foes is foe-only, so you'd need to be Confused to use it on allies. (For example, Berserker-Cipher... unfortunately Serafen is limited to vanilla Barbarian.)

 

However, the Blunderbuss "Powder Burns" modal applies "Flanked" to the user.

 

On Berserker-Storm form: it's not good because the attacks are ranged and the bounces hit your own allies. 

 

Um what? You want your enemies to be flanked unless descrption of Streetfighter is wrong. Read "-50% Recovery time +50% Damage against Flanked, Mind Afflicted or Body Afflicted targets". Against Flanked targets. So you get that 50% dmg bonus AGAINST flanked targets. Hence- Phantom Foes. Why would I want to flank my own allies?

 

 

Streetfighter gets bonuses to Sneak Attack and recovery time when Flanked or Bloodied, and bonus crit damage when both Flanked and Blooded. 

 

But Sneak Attack applies to Flanked or Afflicted targets, which might be what's confusing you.

 

"Sneak Attack becomes more deadly and Recovery decreases when the street fighter is Flanked or Bloodied."

As a multiclass I made a ranger/paladin (wayfarer) who uses guns. I had dex really low, because i thought using rushed reload with high accuracy would be ok.

 

Edit: Having learned more about the game, dumping dex would be a pretty terrible idea. I guess a character with high int, perception and resolve is not so great like in Poe 1. :/

If I'm building eder as a tank, would a swashbuckler be more efficient than single class fighter?

 

I really like the Escape ability. A tank is all about locking down a group of enemies, but that also results in the tank being multiply locked down. Occasionally, I want to reposition the tank, or I really, really want to have him knock down a caster who may be about to cause a lot of trouble, and Escape lets him do that without being locked down. It also lets him close the gap early on to start tanking at a back-liner. Riposte is also cool. So I think you gain more on the Rogue side than you lose on the Fighter side.

Shattered Pill

 

Looking for strong solo powerbuilds. I don't like micro party and prefer to play solo first time (those are not IRON solo builds!). Theorycrafting I was thinking about those (many include Streetfighter as I think playing solo you will benefit most from his bonuses + escape):

Streetfighter/Beguiler - using Phatom Foes and being flanked all the time (since you solo) will give you massive bonuses to damage and focus against targets.

Berserker or Devoted/Skald - obviously for offensive pharases and crits.

 

Berserker/Soul Blade - for damage.

 

Streetfighter/Berserker - can work too, but berserker self damage might be too problematic. 

 

Streetfighter/Skald - hm, could be nice with paralyze phrase.

Streethfighter/Shattered Pillar or Devoted - for classic melee high damage.

Shattered Pillar/Soul Blade - seems there is synergy here for good damage.

 

Ascendant/Berserker or Devoted or Shattered Pillar - I see great synergy here when you reach ascendant, especially with Berserker Carnage/Monk Reach or Devoted crit bonuses. More clicking and micro but I don't mind. I didn't include Shattered/Berserker combo as their actives (attack speed) sadly don't stack. Maybe mods will make it work.

What do you think about those? 

Shattered Pillar is bad for solo.

A solo monk will walways get hit enough to build wounds, but shattered has a max wound threshold of 5 instead of 9(10?).

I'm personally torn between Soul Blade and Ascendant for cipher/monk, seems like Soul Blade is much stronger early game and the late game shouldn't be a problem either way, but still Ascendant sounds so nteresting in theory.

 

Im not sure i understand how ascendant works. he way i read it ontce you reah max focus you can just chain cast your cipher powers because they cost 0 focus. Is that correct? Seems really strong, whats the catch?

My main is a Warcaller (Fighter/Chanter)

I didn't take any subclasses (I should have taken at least Skald) but the character turned out to be a kind of a super versatile CC/Striker. The passive DoT chants are awesome and the paralyze blast is fantastic. I'm rolling with a Pollaxe, which gives him a bit of emergency tankability, and does good damage with good penetration. I don't think it's the best choice of two hander for optimization, but this cat thrives on versatility. He can sort of play any position on the team, which is really useful.


Number 2 is a Ravager (Corpse Eater Barbarian/Helwalker Monk)
Most of what I've seen is people going with shattered pillar for this M/C, but I wanted to go for the pure insanity of combining these two subclasses. As you can see, my main is a bit conservative so I wanted to just dip my taint in the volcano with this boi. He's fast as a blistered jesus lizard and he hits like a buick regal on the end of a stick. Corpse eater mitigates the damage he takes, slightly, and lets me throw bigger punchies more often. Haven't gotten too far with him and am pretty sure he is going to eventually just drop in every single encounter, but for now it's wild friggin' ride.

 

 

Number 3 I'm barely out of the intro with, but is a Hunter (Devoted/Stalker)
Basically I wanted to make a HEMA boi with cool doggo fren. Also if you're counting the pet as a part of the character's overall output/effectiveness then this guy is a goddamned woodchipper. I picked Devoted because I wanted to be swangin (pokin?) my Estoc with the utmost effectiveness and -10 accuracy ain't **** for a fighter/ranger once you get past like level 5 and you don't really need access to ranged before then. I picked stalker because of the buffs you get for being close to your fluffy pal. I picked a wolfboi because damage, they don't get in the way as much as lions, and I <3 doggos.
