HoopleDoople Posted May 1, 2018 Share Posted May 1, 2018 My first playthrough of Deadfire will be with a Druid, and I'm particularly interested in the Shifter subclass. The Shifter seems like it would greatly benefit from multiclassing with a martial class, but I'm not sure which pairings would be particularly effective. I'm hoping that beta players can help provide some insight. Some specific combinations that I'm considering: Shifter + Barbarian - Carnage and Frenzy should greatly enhance the Shifter. Berserker subclass seems a poor fit. Mage Slayer also seems questionable, depending on what is categorized as a beneficial spell effect. Corpse-Eater definitely fits thematically, but I don't understand the mechanics of Rage well enough to know if this is worthwhile. Default Barbarian could be the way to go if this is a worthwhile multiclass. Shifter + Monk - a Shifter will likely be taking quite a bit of damage and can presumably afford to with the innate healing from switching forms. Utilizing this damage to generate wounds would be a natural combo. Helwaker looks like the most promising subclass by far. Shifter + Ranger - I'm definitely intrigued by the so-called Beastmaster multiclass. If it works how I'm imagining, it could be a neat jack of all trades multiclass, switching between spell casting, ranged combat, and melee combat as needed. But it also might just be bad at everything and too boring while shapeshifted. Stalker looks the most promising while Sharpshooter is an obviously poor fit. I'm guessing it's not worth having to take the time to summon your pet with Ghost Heart for this multiclass. The other classes didn't immediately catch my interest for a Shifter multiclass, but I'm open to hearing about any good options. Any other related advice for a Shifter such as recommended Race, attributes, gear, and tactics are also welcome. Hopefully I can put together some semblance of a plan for my character so I can hit the ground running when Deadfire launches next week. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
