Lord of Riva Posted February 2, 2018 Share Posted February 2, 2018 (edited) Hey Guys, tl;dr check bottom questions, if thats too much fluff. I kind of lost track of Deadfire (and was not a backer) however this will most likely be a day one purchase from me. As i didnt follow the development that close but really want to dabble in creating my PC beforehand i have some questions from the Pros First of all i played a Wild Orlan Barbarian with a 2h Estoc in PoE the first time and had quite the fun with it, however there are some changes regarding how the classes function if i read correctly? regarding weapon modals etc. ( i already found a handy spreadsheet about that) but i am still a bit Perplexed regarding the new recovery mechanics of PoE 2. I literally had all people naked (as in only clothes) in PoE apart from eder who was my tank and that was definitely sufficient on Hard so what changed generally? I would love to wear something more heavy and i love Plate Armors actually (Style wise) but it felt way too much of a drawback in PoE. (1.0 btw ... im currently replaying in story mode for PoE 2 as a refresher and for choices, i want Aloth be the grand master of the leaden key because that sounds really interesting.) When i checked out PoE 2 wiki i realised that subclasses existed one stuck out to me, the Priest of Wael, it definitely is my favorite god of the Bunch and also was the end choice in my first playthrough (and most likely will be the choice again) So i actually want to play a Priest .... well it could be sufficient to do just that but at the same time with multiclassing i dont have to play a full support priest. One thing beforehand, i do not exactly know what the malus for priest from Wael are, no punishment spells basically mean no Damage spells altogether? So in the interest of my build i have two options i currently consider, probably Orlan again or i may opt for a boring human: 1. Shaman of Wael (no Subclass) probably with a Two handed weapon (Estoc, or Great Sword) 2. Itinerant of Wael (Sharpshooter) probably Dual wielding Pistols/mixing with Blunderbus etc. These may not be the most efficient choices, actually they may be really bad *shrug* , but i love the idea for Role playing Purposes. tl;dr: so the questions are: (naming all questions for the tl;dr) 1. What does "no Punishment spells" for Priests of Wael roughly entail? 2. How well do you think those multiclass choices synergize? (Barbarian/Priest of Wael and Sharpshooter/Priest of Wael) 3. How would you distribute your Attrbute points? (Race and origin are undecided, but i will take any suggestion ) 4. I know two 1h weapons are currently more efficient but i prefer two-handers so which weapon would you say is the best for a Priest/Barbarian. 5. Is Dual wielding full ranged as Priest/Ranger a okay idea or is it a bad idea regarding the priest spells range? 6. How bad would Heavy Armor interfer with the roles of these classes? What Armor would you suggest? Last thing to remember, if i have to dial down to easy i will just do that its not really a problem however i would like to beat the game at least on normal or better on hard but RP comes first thank you in advance if someone finds the time for input, otherwise thanks anyway for testing the game and giving great feedback (and some really in-depth calculations !) to Obsidian, the game will be better through this even though Obsidian has proven in my eyes that they can make a extremely thoroughly designed system already (even if community feedback was also imoportant there ) so also kudos to them.
