Who Does What in Melee?

Postby Veracity » Sun Jan 12, 2020 5:37 pm

Since we are looking at "who can best use an item in melee" when we find loot.... Could we have a general working discussion of how each of us would like to operate prior to, during, and after melee?

Here is my (probably much less than full understanding):

Fuma = Honorable Front Line Fighter and sometimes Honorable Diplomat. Best for +weapons-of-choice, +armor, and +ability to dodge enemy attacks. (STR and CON boon items desired?)

Mercy = Spontaneous/Reckless First Attack Fighter, Provocateur, Sometimes Dragon, and Sometimes Spell Caster. Best for +weapons-of-choice and +ability to dodge enemy attacks. (STR and DEX boon items desired?)

Chip = More Cautious Second-Line Fighter and sometimes Spell Caster. Best for +back-stabbing (piercing) weapons and +ability to dodge enemy attacks. Due to small size, could probably use speed enhancement items. Due to Race, could probably use night vision enhancing items. (DEX boon items desired?)

Elipse = Healer, Distance Caster, Animal-Shaper, and Third-Line Fighter. Best for +distance magic items and weapons, spell storing items, protection items, and nature-related items. (WIS boons and CON boons desired.)

Sedon = Distance Caster, Forecaster, and Sometimes Third-Line Fighter. Best for +distance magic items and weapons, spell storing items, and protection items. (INT boons desired?)

Fuma is a monk, so he doesn't wear armor. DEX items boost his attack, damage, and armor class. WIS items boost his armor class too (that's how the monk class work). Beyond those, a CON item would give him more hp. He only uses monk weapons like a spear (his current weapon of choice along with un-armed attacks).

Sedon is Cha-based. More Cha items are good for him. Int and Wis not so much. Dex is always good for AC.

Mercy is mostly DEX which helps with bow and armor
