Gold makes your life in SWPT easier
The skills. Beside 1-2 points in Regeneration, you will need them first altogether in whatever order: Fast Learning, Scavenger and Trading. But which skill to take first? Fast Learning 5/5 gives double exp, that includes from the books. Scavenger 5/5 gives double loot. Trading 5/5 makes you sell items at double price.
Benefits of taking Scavenger 5/5 among first skills before or after Fast Learning 5/5: you will have reliable armor, weapon and potions drop. While you start almost without them. You can store looted items inside House Storage until you have maxed Trading skill and sell them after. That will result in more gold in the end. More gold = more exp books you can buy or more items. Save, load and the vendor sells them again.
Benefits of taking Fast Learning 5/5 as a first skill: you can be lucky with loot even without Scavenger. That can result in more overall exp from first two locations.
Benefits of taking Trading skill ahead of Scavenger and after Fast Learning: you will have more inventory space for the loot you couldn’t carry and still might be lucky with the loot even before getting Scavenger. This can be the fastest leveling but the most risky too.
Regeneration and Hardened Skin
1-2 point in Regeneration is pretty enough for a convenient gameplay. Invest in it whenever. Hardened Skin is unneeded if you are not going to play on the difficulties above Hard.
Why you don’t need Hardened Skin and much of Regeneration? In the end with armor and damage just use HP potions and don’t care. You get many with Scavenger and you will throw them away to pick up more loot anyway. Smuggler sells the armor.
But your companions will definitely need first 2 skill points in Regeneration and Hardened Skin later. Because they are your little decoys making uwu to anything they see. The Regeneration helps them to recover between the skirmishes. And it’s good to have your companion at maximum health on a start of a fight without managing their HP potions that much. Otherwise they just use HP potions from their bags and are ok. So give them some.
Leveling route for the companions: 2 Regeneration – Fast Learning 5/5 – Hardened Skin 5/5.
Frostbite is a good skill for the companions too. They use it only when it’s many enemies around. That saves them from getting into trouble for some time while fighting against armies/hordes.
Take Agility until you will have 15 of it. Agility gives you Stamina, which is more important than anything, attack Speed and a little of Defence. But the fun is over when you reach attack speed cap at Speed 1.3.
Why 2h swords are good? Because Hythix leveled useless Strength stat. if you throw everything into Agility you have double amount of Stamina which is more strikes you can make in a row and more attack speed. Hythix having extra 30 damage. While I have 2h sword with like 361+19 damage and double stamina. And with increased Speed from Agility 2h swords aren’t that slow anymore. The trick is that 2h sword have longer attack distance and you can start an attack before an enemy gets near. And while fighting with a crowd you can oneshoot someone and roll back safely without getting damage at all, tearing them apart one by one.
Before that a club is the best starting weapon which you need to loot. Use it yourself and give those to the companions. In the end 2h sword is the best weapon that you can buy from vendor in the current state of the game. And you can play on Insane difficulty with it.
The companions with leveled agility have no trouble using 2h swords too. They can’t play like a human always using distance attacks but if something happens they have blocking AI.
Beside a weapon mastery Phantom Slashes is a good to take skill. It increases each next attack’s damage against a single target. That will give you double-triple damage against heavy enemies. Your companions can build up combo stack on a target before you join it.
Or you can forget all that and level Power and Fireball. Increased Mana will have better MP regeneration. You might add bow mastery to that. But the gameplay will be boring.
The quotes about 2h swords:
“2h weapons are just bad, in my eyes. They’re slow and clunky, and don’t really do any more damage or aoe than their 1h counterparts. I died a LOT”, “2h are not good compared to 1h”
“attack animations for 2H weapons are ineffective. They have a oddly short range and don’t seem to do much damage”
