At first I started a Trickster/Soulblade main character, but I don't really like the trickster so now I'm thinking of starting a Devoted/Soulblade or an Assassin/Soulblade. Which one would make more sense to partner up with a swashbuckler (fighter/rogue) Edér if I'll focus on one handed style with swords and medium armor?

 

Assassin/Soulblade and Fighter/Rogue has multiple ways to Flank enemies with smokes, blinding attacks and cipher debuffs, but a Devoted/Soulblade generally looks more viable with Disciplined B., Confident Aim and Cleaving Stance.

 

Basically my planned attributes for both would be Might15, Con10, Dex16, Per15, Int10, Res12

Psyblade is much more durable than mindstalker, so you should take the amount of micromanaging (or tinkering with AI settings) you're willing to do into account.

Yeah, that's what I thought. Fighter builds are more straightforward and forgiving. Now if only I could pick wizard instead of cipher, but Soulblade is way too tempting for a melee character. :)

I really wanted my mindstalker to work on my first go around. But it's *way* too squishy. You have no real defense or responses on those big hits besides warping away and switching to ranged. 

 

I switched to a Holy Slayer? Holy Avenger? (Paladin/Rogue) build and was *much* more satisfied with both the damage of my chars output and his survivability.
