i am currently making a Pale elf Rogue and would like your input on what i have planned when it comes to build,gear choices and companions.
- 16 mig
- 6 con
- dex 18
- per 18
- int 16
This give me:
(144 Health and 36 Endurance at 10 Con)
116 Health 29 Endurance
9 Deflection 21 Fortitude 52 Reflex and 20 Will
I usually prefer Intelligence over Charisma when playing Rogues so i can use magic tools like scrolls. In this game that would be higher intellect over Resolve.
Unless someone can give me a good reason not to. Other then the fact that Resolve seems to fit a fast talking rogue and that it comes up in many dialogues why would i choose Resolve over Intellect in this game?
I guess i could min max the char better for resolve like this:
- mig 18
- con 3
- dex 18
- per 18
- int 3
94 Health 24 Endurance
23 Deflection 19 Fortitude 52 Reflex and 22 Will
But i worry that would make him to much of a glass cannon.
Crippling strike is 2x and debuff the enemy with:
-3 move speed
Perhaps its better on a low int rogue, since you get 2 chances at extra damage and setup for stealth attack or am i missing something?
while blinding strike is 1x and debuff the enemy with:
-2 move speed
so for a high int build i feel Blinding strike makes more sense. Due to higher duration on the debuff and if it crits it gave another 50% duration increase.
Dirty fighting for the crits
Reckless Assult for Accuracy and damage
Deep wounds should work excellent at range and ok in melee
Death blows more damage is always good
Sap dont see anything better to use instead.
- Two weapon fighting Speed is good
- Savage attack extra damage
Vulnerable Attack DR bypass is good
no idea what to take after that.
I am planning to use battleaxes for their inherited 0.5 crit damage
and more specifically pair We Toki with Edge of Reason
Tall Grass could also be a fantastic melee weapon but i would miss out on the second attack from using two one handed weapons..
As for ranged weapons i dont know if Borresaine for its stun on crits or if Persistance would be better.
Does anyone know if the duration of the stun on Borresaine is affected by Intellect? or is it static?
When it comes to armor for a rogue is it best to stay in Scale for a while and then move to padded once you have more speed modifiers?
so basicly from scales of the raven at best to night runner and then onward to Angios Gamberson?
If the unique armors is the best choice for the Player character.
i have no idea what other gear might be of use to a rogue.
As rogues in this game gain most of they effectiveness from proper flanking and status effects on enemies as far as i know. I planned on having these companions in my end game party:
- Eder Tank
- Pallegina Second tank and buff
- Durance heals and buffs
- Grieving Mother CC
- Aloth ranged DPS AOE
I plan to try out all the other companions as well.
Anything specific i need to think of when it comes top the companions?
Hope you can share some tips and input on my questions.
