    seriously and wholeheartedly with utter confusion, what's the point in playing a game about making choices if you don't make your own?

      We all make choices, but in the end our choices make us.

      bro, he's asking for peoples opinions so that he can make a more-informed decision. some people like to do their homework before they make a choice, and part of that is hearing testimony of others.

    you get rogue, monk and barbarian (all pretty fun classes) only pretty late in the game (in the dlc), so if that is important for you then there you go
    you also get cipher lateish and some believe it is pretty weak character writing wise, and cipher is tons of fun

    Ciphers and chanters are probably the strongest classes, but monks, barbarians, fighters and rogues are the most fun to play.

    Played as ranger in one. Arbalest is funny, but far from power gaming.

      Yeah, Cipher is pretty good. Strong, but also with a lot of role-playing opportunities and it kinda makes sense for your character.
      Also like Paladin. While he's not that strong, the class incentives you to behave according to your code and really stay in character.

      Yeah, did ranger as well. Thought to myself "he isn't doing that great anyway", only to check the stats and see that he has like 50% of the kills. Using bows, he's mostly gunning for the small fry, but this amounts to something.

        Yeah, ranged is based in poe1. Having a tanky animal helps. Shame they fricked up poe 1 and esp 2. Could've been great.

        That's 1 minute into the game, keep goin homie. Side note, cipher is not as great as people say, a fully optimized druid will outperform a fully optimized cipher and they don't benefit as heavily from Watcher stats. Hope you dumped constitution and resolve. Go grab the shitty gun on this map, it's gunna carry you until lead splitter and then you'll be using that for the entire game.

          Did I make a mistake? I just killed a basic enemy and for some reason I couldn't use my spells because I didn't have enough "focus" wtf?

          • 1 month ago

            I think you have to build focus each encounter, through normal attacks. Been forever since I used a cipher though

            It technically doesn't matter unless its PotD because every other difficulty is boring and glue eater tier, but the most fun way to play cipher is GUNMAGE BANG BANG and once you get a blunderbuss you'll have infinite focus. You can make a cipher melee too but they're kind of boring until Deadfire introduces multiclassing. For a cipher you want to dump con and res to 3 and max everything else because you'll never get hit anyways, just wear regular clothes for max reload speed.

          I like to not dump anything below 10. I pick two stats for each class and set those to 18, sometimes one to 20 if the class and race and culture align, sometimes a third one to 12 if needed, depending on the class. This soothes the tism

                yes, but it starts getting complicated
                for example

                >The observable universe is one causal patch of a much larger unobservable universe; other parts of the Universe cannot communicate with Earth yet. These parts of the Universe are outside our current cosmological horizon.

          Because resource management is a cornerstone of dungeon crawling and no good rpg lacks resource management. Simple really. If your favorite rpg doesn't have resource management it's a bad game.

    Cipher, bar none. It synergizes very well with the role of Watcher, and also gives you a unique method of resolving, at least, two quests.
    It also has a huge number of unique interactions/conversation options.
