SilverSaint Posted May 5, 2018 Share Posted May 5, 2018 In PoE1 I played a ranged Cipher, so in PoE2 I planned to continue this, but with a more melee oriented approach using sabers for a more pirate captain theme. That being said I have a few questions that maybe some of the beta players have answers too or others just better ideas then me in general. Is dual wielding better then one handed? The 20% of hits converted to crits along with higher accuracy seems pretty strong. Assuming dual wielding is better is confident aim worth getting for that 30% of grazes converted to crits? For this multiclass setup is biting whip strictly better then draining whip or is the extra focus for more soul annihilations actually comparable?Continuing on soul annihilation are the extra max focus skills useful as they give more effective upfront burst or is lower focus better thanks to getting off more soul annhilations (assuming you can as I dont know the CDs)? As every melee I used in my PoE1 was a tank what sort of armor should a more offensive melee character be wearing? Do you start off lighter then switch to heavier once you get armored grace (-25% armor recovery penalty) or is it all light or heavy all the time?How often would a devoted/soul blade cipher use spells? Do builds like this use spells often or are they considerably more melee oriented so taking skills such as one handed style would be better in the cipher tree vs the fighter tree? Regarding stat distribution what would you suggest. Thanks for any help in advance! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
