>>41669912>I never really used MaO's buffs, I just liked his defend/riposte combo as a front liner
good god, add the antiquarian's "protect me" thing and he just becomes this reliable damage dealer. it's almost broken if the game wasn't geared towards killing your guys.
>Are the buffs actually good? Better than a potential healer?
honestly, i haven't checked yet. one of his buffs is a thing that raises crit chance and hit chance, which has served me kinda well. i'm not sure if that plus his dodge boost buff is enough to validate him versus a healer tho. i haven't had the best luck with healers. like, i've had six plague doctors my whole game and four of them are dead now. part of why i like lepers is that they can reliably hit two front guys with hew and most have some self heal thing.
>I really love Hellions, their damage is so reliable, they can oneshot the backliners, and they're pretty tanky with the self-heal. Running 2 Hellions is actually so fun
hellions are so much fun, every time i've faced a boss i always have a hellion. and she always dies before the very last hit. i swear i'm cursed.
>I also really like Mark comps. Arbalest, Houndmaster, Bounty Hunter with those sicknasty 50 damage hits, and then something for utility. Hey maybe buff MaO would work in this comp...
hell yeah. i love arbalests so much, especially if they also come with their little heal thing. then they just become this amazing utility unit that can do almost anything but melee. >>41670030
why are you farming in facefuck central? like, the cove has been nothing but semi-random super hard encounters for me. rarely am i fighting fewer than 4 dudes, and there's always one of those fucking fish priests who always heals
>I hate jesters myself. Bleed kind of sucks in this game
yeah it sorta does, which is why i stack it with blight and use my jester to keep the bleed on. the game always throws jesters at me, so i've had to get good with them.
bleed is pretty bad tho, i should try looking for line-ups that aren't so bleed heavy. maybe if i start a new game i could get luckier with who shows up. i'd like to get a better feel for classes other than highwayman, man o' arms, crusader, plague doctor, and leper. like, apart from an occasional arbalest i've almost never gotten anything else. well, and jesters, but those are cannon fodder for me. literally, two always show up in the caravan.
