mentaltyranny Posted March 25, 2018 Share Posted March 25, 2018 Hi everyone... been lurking here awhile and I think this is my first post. Anyway, I am playing at normal difficulty - for me just challenging enough (I am also physically disabled) without having to break immersion by crafting tons of potions/scrolls, and using IEMod custom NPC stats to "re-shuffe" the companions attributes to fit builds posted on the forums here, steam, and NerdCommando's youTube videos, with my own tweaks. Keep in mind that I am just swapping attributes around to better fit the builds, I am not redistributing the points. This seems to make the companions better without feeling like I am breaking immersion by having a companion having CON/RES of 3 and it not reflected in their personality somewhere. This allows me to get the best of both worlds having story companions in the party and having a descent stat array, So I am LVL 7 and just heading to Russetwood in WM1, and I checked my map before leaving Stalwart Village, and I noticed Maneha appeared by the Ondra Temple and is recruitable. I was surprised because I thought she would not be available until WM2, since she was added in that expansion, but I guess if you have WM2, she will appear in WM1. Weird... I am playing a dual wield assassin rogue build posted here, with more well rounded stats. Before I saw her, I was planning on taking Eder (French Connection), Zahua (Juggernaut), Durance (Fire Priest), Aloth (Zeblastian Hurtstacker), and Sagini (Storm and Plague Caller) until I find the Devil (not sure yet a good build for a second rogue). If I take Maneha now, I will swap her for Eder and probably make her a Golden Dragon barbarian, as it seems to fit her LVL 1 choice of Barbaric Yell well and would provide a second competent "full" Tank for the party. However, I heard that Eder has good WM1 dialogue, and I am worried that since she wasn't added until WM2 she won't have much say or contribute in WM1, so I am considering just not recruiting her until WM2. I know she would have "banter" with other companions now, but banter seems to depend more on who else is in the party and isn't location dependent, so I will likely get that in WM2 anyways. But I don't know if she will have anything to "say" in dialogue in WM1. Basically, I am wondering which will provide me a better WM1 experience, Eder or Maneha? Oh, and thanks for any comments in advance! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
