Hey forum friends and deadfire enthusiasts! I'm working to get one last run completed prior to Deadfire on April 3rd, and my hopes are to port this character over. My deadfire team will look like PC Tank Wizard/Paladin, Eder Rogue, Tekehu Chanter, Xoti Priest, and the fifth spot will be open for Aloth, Maia, Serafen, etc.
I've started this POTD run (my first, completed on Hard before) and have just entered Defiance Bay. The party looks like this:
Kana - tank, later Dragon Thrashed
MC Wizard, tanky, spamming slicken and curse of blackened sight
Eder, 2-hand Lady of Pain
Hireling Monk, Juggernaut to be replaced with Zahua
Durance, Tanky Buff spammer
My question - how would you build the Wizard? Is Wzard Tank still viable? My squad is low on AoE so my plan was for this guy to absorb hits while spamming CC's like Call to Slumber, etc., giving time for Eder and Zahua (and Dragon Thrashed) to thin out the herds of mobs.
Open to feedback on the squad as well - though in the spirit of Deadfire I plan to keep the party limit at 5.
