Hello,
Got some new guys with us, but we're a group of 5 playing Barbarian, Cleric, Paladin, Rogue, Wizard. We're definitely geared to breeze normal but may have a challenge for hardcore. Have 2 more slots and love for a full house.

Hello. I bought a ticket for this run and chose Ranger. I am well geared for Hardcore, but will defer to what the rest of the group wants to do. Looking forward to playing with you all. I will post later this week any tokens that I have that can be borrowed by party members.

-Thanks,

-Joe

Hi! I bought the last ticket for this run, and I'll be playing Druid. I should be pretty comfortable with Hardcore, looking forward to adventuring with you all!

My druid has pretty heavy Focus focus, the builds you have seem all right to me, and I probably can't improve them much with my own tokens, maybe just some small gear like extra Beryl Prisms or the like. Everyone's got enough HP that I can probably comfortably heal it.

Druid (5th level)
40 HP
19 AC, 13 / 13 / 19 saves
+18 spell dmg, +17 heal
Lenses of Divine Sight (split heals)

Taking a guess that the adventure is going to have some poison damage, I'm thinking I'll wear a bit of poison resist.

I think a good approach to shoring up your characters' builds is if you can summarize what kind of gear you think your builds might need, it's a bit hard for me to parse a big list of tokens. And my own tokens aren't the best-organized either ;)

That's fair. I agree with the poison thing. Will try to dig up some more poison resist. What are your thoughts on bogling charm to negate melee penalties fighting in swampy terrain? Feels like TD has been including more environmental hazards.

Paladin and Cleric are pretty set, as we've played most. Using spare tokens to gear our 3 friends. As for a simplicity of focus,

Barbarian:
Wondering if +10/+20 on melee is enough for a dps focus. Maybe upping more str and con and less in dex?

Wizard:
I plan to guard wizard and cleric is running linked healing shirt so probably looking to build more spell damage and hp on this.

Rogue:
Never played with a Nightshades +2 throwing dagger, so equipped a short bow on the side. Thought of focusing on a sneak attack build but it didnt seem as consistent as raising + to hit. Hard to balance melee/range on rogue with this UR weapon. Thoughts?

Re: Bogling charm, we can wear free movement gear to counteract potential bog/swamp hindrance, i.e. defender set bonus, boots of free action, amulet of the wind, if you have stronger charm options.

Looked at the barb/wizard/rogue builds a bit more:

Barb:
that shield can't be equipped with either the melee or sling weapon (both are 2h), probably need to drop shield
can use a more melee-focused goggles, range can stay secondary. i.e. lenses of heimdall sight
potentially can use just a shirt of vitality instead of linked shirt, depends on wizard gear and how much cleric will be able to use it (i'm wearing shirt of focus, won't have a linked shirt on)
can have a slightly better armor if desired, i.e. +5 ac reinforced leather armor
ring of truth can be ring of iron will for some free extra will
can fit 2 more ioun stones. i have a couple extra IS beryl prism, could also fill with IS norse opal for 1 hp heh
can only use 1 bead, didn't see anything that lets us wear 3

Rogue:
Throwing weapons are one use per combat, didn't see anything that returns the knife to you. Probably should focus melee. Throwing also uses dex to hit, may want to look at pants.
Could use shruiken instead of the short bow as an option, to get strength bonus on damage
Goggles could be switched for a melee focus (only have 1 extra lenses of heimdall sight)
Could use a damage bracer, i.e. bracers of frost
Could use a stronger glove, i.e. gauntlets of ogre power, gauntlets of the midgard serpent (with poison resist)
Is the pants strength bonus worth the -2 dex?
Room for a 2nd earcuff
If melee focused, probably don't need charm of the wind, but not bad to have if nothing else fills the slot
Only one bead

Wizard:
Kendal looks to have a lot of wizard gear, looks like fun stuff there :) In particular Cook's Hat, would give wizard 5th level spells, and make up for the healing lost if using Shirt of Focus (edit: i might have misread, and there isn't a shirt of focus)
If you have other ring options, rogue could use ring of the drake with shruikens for range, for returning shruiken
Only one bead

---

I see a nice polymorph ring (ring of the siren), but I can't polymorph without potions with my current build. Thinking that would be really neat though, I know my polymorph damage is pretty good too.

Hello everyone, here is my build for my Dex based Ranged Ranger. This is with borrowing the Venomguard Greaves that someone mentioned having 3 of earlier. I have also discovered that I do not have a hat for my Ranger. I thought my Helm of the Eagle would work, but it is not usable for Rangers. So, if anyone has a better hat that I can wear. Please let me know.

Here's my full build. I'd like to borrow a +1 Large Wooden Shield for an extra AC. I'll check if I have anything for your Ranger. If anyone has an extra Bracers of the Tavernkeeper, that'll net me an extra 4 HP also.
