    I'm not good at building characters, so I just went pure level 20 classes. Tbh, my main and Seelah can't really hit any named major bosses, those with 60+ AC on Core, they pretty much just tank. Amber and Aru's the only 2 doing all the killing, especially Ember. Nenio's for the buffs and mass killing mobs with Weird. Daeren for healing.

    If you kill Deskari before you kill his mobs, you can even loot him mid battle and get his Scythe. You won't have time to equip it or chance to use it though:

    I just don't know what to think when they have an initiative bar portrait showing a dark-haired male with a short haircut at the same time.

    I went 20 Wizard for Nenio as well, and I think it's the only one I regret. She really is made to be a Loremaster.

    I have no idea how you'd get nenio to have weirds with decent DC. Everything has so much spell resist and saves, making 3 75% rolls in a row is not good odds, and I can't even manage to get better than 50% on the saves most of the time (admittedly I have not spent every single perk point on school specialization, so that's maybe on me).

    I'm actually a bit disappointed with arcane magic in this game in general. Haste is incredible, but beyond that there's not that much good stuff. Mind blank would be nice, but it doesn't seem to work on like half the effects it should.

    I listed him under the "And then you have all various horn and spider legs stuff..." category.

    And at low level when you need one person to have BOTH freedom of movement and death ward, he has issues. He can get firestorm and be fine fire mage.

    If you get all spell focus, spell specialization, mythic feats, get her INT items and the illusion ring you can get decent DC weird. Obviously you won't kill bosses and neither more robust mobs but I still had use for it in the last dungeon of the game, and it was on hard.

    Also there is the meal recipe that adds 1 DC to your spell.
    When/if they add persistent to favorite metamagic you can have it on weird with completely normal as trickster also.

    What would you consider "decent" when talking about DC? Without shenanigans, my Nenio's Weird has a DC of 42 for the Will save and 44 for the Fortitude one, which is enough to thin out most encounters on Core, especially considering how easy it is to lower enemies' saves in this game. Dirge of Doom/Frightful Aspect give a non-resistible -2 to all saves to everyone who isn't immune to fear effects, the Display of Power belt gives a non-resistible -2 to Will saves to everyone, the Angel's Piercing Rays gives a scaling non-resistible penalty (and right now it's bugged and gets applied twice), the Twisted Temptation should give another -2 (but they don't always work right now). Then you also have resistible effects like Archon's Aura and the lyre relic that gives a -5 against mind-affecting effects.

    In my experience, arcane magic can carry you for 90% of the game. Grease, Glitterdust, and Shout solved almost every encounter for the first 3 chapters, and they're still relevant during chapter 4 and 5. Stormbolts has destroyed everything in chapter 4 thanks to the Devoring Lust rod, and it's still dominating every encounter in chapter 5. Mass Icy Prison will probably do the same once Owlcat decides to fix it.

    Mind Blank is close to useless, since it was nerfed in Pathfinder and it now gives a bonus that doesn't stack with your regular Cloak of Resistance. You can easily get tons of +5 cloaks in chapter 4 and even higher in chapter 5, so Mind Blank will only give you a +3 or +2, not the full +8 (and definitely not immunity).

    You an also rely on items that boost your mind-affecting DCs, like the glass amulet sold in Drezen (I think).

    During chapter 4, you can find a recipe that adds 2 to your DCs.

    Power attack is pretty much not worth it in Wrath unless you are running a Legend build or something with insanely high AB. Since AB requirements go up as high as 85 in Unfair. (Before debuffs are taken into account though)

    The key point is that while you may not be able to kill every Demon Lord by beating enemy saves with simple CC, those spells will remain useful against normal encounters even as you transition to nuking enemies dead by midgame onwards. It is very much the same as in Kingmaker, except that with Bolstered Metamagic the nuking play style is better than ever.

    Goddamn, Angel ending felt so satisfying.

    I hate how you have to otherwise simp for Areelu in order to kill Deskari for good. Sure, you get to kill goat boy too, but the fight is not worth the effort.

    I did skip Areelu's 2nd phase and have the secred ending unlocked so still have to do those, but damn this was a good ending.

    Not if you play as a lich. You can heal yourself since chapter 2 if you are a dhampir. Azatas gain a dragon companion healer who also can heal you. Angels can self heal. I don't care about the race of companions. What really bugs me is that ... We don't get a single druid companion.

    Imagine thinking that if you're playing a dhampir you aren't playing an African American.

    Either I forgot about this since I don't use kineticists much or I never knew. Either way mind blown.

    Maybe on core if you have a bard merc, cleric merc and if they don't fix scrolls of legendary proportions not using bones.

    Camellia can do druid stuff. Including swarms. And if she selects additional path, she can get animal companion at level 16. So she's kinda like druid, just without shapeshifting.

    According to the combat log - yes. That is why I am very grateful to Pink Eye not only on the forum, but in the game as well.

    Vampires have very pale skin and are very selective of those who they share their bloodline.
