gotta combine it with Paladin, then faceroll. Some single classes just blow, sadly.

 

Berzerker/Shieldbearer is good stuff.

My Glass Cannon mellee monster, that has no defense abilities or healing til high level can't tank the damage that's supposed to be spread over 5 characters!!!  What *****.  Talk about solo unfriendly, the game plays as if you are supposed to have multiple characters or something.  Grrrr.  Frustrating.

Unbroken + No-Sub Barb is good too. Sword and board, frenzy, lots of engagement, etc.

Thanks for the suggestions ill give it a shot. Im guessing Con is something i want to pool into as well i thought id throw into dex and str for faster attacks but it seems to do little for solo play. It just seems like Baldurs gate got it right when it came to choosing to use a party or solo, i guess BG is untouchable by standards.

I think single class Barb is okay. Combo it with Fighter or Paladin for a top tier melee unit, though.

Barb seemed mediocre in the first game, to my dismay, so not surprised if it is still in that boat. Multi-class options like stated above will probably help, just need to experiment. I know I plan to roll a Tempest (Barb/Shifter) tonight and just right click things to death.

Ive had a good time with berserker/streetfighter with blunderbusses to proc the streetfighter passive. Since blunderbusses hit your own party anyways theres a "synergy" there with berserker. I'm not running solo and imagine the build wouldn't be tanky enough to manage that, it does crazy damage though and will only improve once the blunderbusses reload bug is fixed.

My MC is a Nature Godlike Berserker/Bleak Walker and is fun to play so far. I'm only at level 7, but so far it's been a lot of fun.

- Frenzy triggers the racial skill of Nature Godlike automatically

- Flames of Devotion is a full attack, meaning he hits pretty hard with dual weapons

- The Bleak Walker's special FoD makes targets Sickened, which helps rogues in my party deal more damage (Eder, Maia)

- Faith and Conviction makes him more tanky

You didn't play him long enough. Actually it's a great class in PoE. It just starts a bit weak. But my does it skyrocket...

Barbs were fantastic in PoE 1.

In my Deadfire prepationary run two weeks ago, my Barbarian did more damage than the rest of my party put together. Now, there is some 'controlling the player charatcer most of the time' bias, but Barbs are just insane when it comes to aoe.

I'm finding Barbarian (playing a Helwalker / Berserker) does a lot less area than I initially expected.  Admittedly, with Berserker you don't really want piles of area damage, from a character that will hit friends with it...  Maybe its the -5 Int crippling the size, but I thought it would be a much bigger concern (I skipped the +Accuracy Carnage talent to help with it also).

I feel alor of thought went into all the ship stuff just that was the main focus and some of the classes just pure classes just got made like yeap barbarian um berserker throw it in. I feel like you have to multi class to solo other then the monk or w/e which ive heard is op. I remember the beserker from Baldurs gate 2 Whhheewwyy was he fun and the barbarian sub class thats how you make a class.

Gotta agree barbs were fantastic in POE, and they are great in Deadfire, even as a single class, but a tank they ain't. Paladins or chanter is always going to better for that purpose, and as people have said, for solo you need defense, and frankly many of the barbs abilities are not going to be great here. Doesn't mean the class is weak.

Dont drop int to 3, it affects frenzy duration and you are going to suffer.  It also decrease carnage AoE as well.

Lack of dex means you hit very very slow.

I would dump resolve, since fighter+berserker has talents to resist afflictions and defensive traits to make up for the lowered resolve.

Might isn't as strong as you think.  Its an additive modifier to weapon damage.  There are other modifiers out there (such as weapon quality, talents, etc).

Con around ~10, Might 14+, Dex 10+, Per 10+, Int around ~10, Resolve can be dumped. 

 

Might, Dex and Per all give you more melee dps, Int is important for your Frenzy and other buffs. Con is not worth increasing but you don't really want to get negative with it either. Resolve is the first attribute to dump in favor of more damage.

Solo'd most of the game on POTD with a Zerker. You really need meta-knowledge of where certain items are

 

The biggest issue is being interrupted and escaping combat state if **** goes bad. There are items that will help with that.

Mind sharing the items? I am interested in applying Zerker to one of my new builds and would love to know for future reference :)
