I feel the other characters calling out to me again. My Warder’s build has been pretty much set for a while. Going through the Four hills and now reaching the Broken Hills, it has been fun, but my character’s been set for a while. At this point I’m just adding points to existing skills. Squad tactics will need a lot more points, as will Savagery. And then some of the other things that I have points in. At this point, it’s hard to spot which of these skills is the most efficient at increasing my damage output. I like the fact that Savagery seems to add damage to all my other skills. I might be wrong about that, but it feels true. I build up my charges, and then use my other skills like Forcewave (Right-click), Blade-Arc (Mouse 4) for crowds and Blitz (Mouse 5) for single enemies and crowds.
For Devotion, as you can see in that link, I went to get Bull Rush, which I associated with Savagery. And I’ve been getting the per-requisites now to get Kraken next. Everything in Kraken should add to my damage for all skills.
Now I just have to keep playing and adding points to Savagery and Squad Tactics, since they both add damage to all my other skills, and then eventually maybe put points into other things.
So that’s why my other 5 characters are calling out to me more. Come play us! Who knows which classes you could combine us with! There’s so many possibilities! It is a shame that all the main character building takes place on the road to the Warden, like Lee was saying upthread. So many looooooooong dungeons at the end of Act 1. But creating new characters during that long slog should still be fun.
Maybe I’ll go for that Flash Freeze Arcanist Gendal mentioned upthread. After I beat the warden, I went back to the old area and found the blacksmith. So I got the Firebolt thingie. But it looks like in my game, Flash Freeze doesn’t mention anything about making things more vulnerable to fire. Maybe that used to be part of Flash Freeze in an earlier build of the game?
EDIT: Duh, it’s the reverse. My game DOES mention the reduction to fire resistance from Flash Freeze, it’s only Grim Calculator that doesn’t mention it. Sorry about that.
