So it starts off like this, I was planning on making a really beefy marauder with lots of armor and life but as I played the plan started to change significantly.
After the first boss I killed, I picked up a yellow bow that could basically one shot everything ( I know, in the beginning it doesn't really matter ). However, that got me thinking, if I can just be a really tanky marauder but have good damage via ranged weapon so that even if they did get close to me, it wouldn't matter, why bother with a sword and board? The mitigation would be higher, sure, but whats the point of that if they just die before they even get close to me? ( bosses excluded ).
So far, I'm almost to act 2 and it's working surprisingly well. Tons of life, armor, and the only downfall really is that I have to rely on the base damage of the ranged weapon as I don't have much damage boosting effects in the skill tree, which isn't TOO much of a problem, as I still kill things rather quickly.
Weird build but effective, and I've yet to die!
You guys got any weird builds ?
