So anyone thought it would be cool with a 0 main hand + shield captain america style? giving you both sucker punch and shield up at the cost of no weapon? Any thoughts? It seems to fit best with an intellect based tank who doesnt use strength weapons and cant benefit from a wand.

It would work, but not on a tank... a summoner/buffer/controller type character would work best as then you are not tied to either str/fin/int as your summons don't scale of them, and buffs and positioning spells do not really benefit from those stats either.

Shield would be for extra defense, and a shield throw now and then (scales off the shield stat to my knowledge?) and the loss of a weapon is not felt as keenly on a character whose role is pure support.

You can go for high wits/memory then, always go first in fights where you then summon your incarnate, use adrenaline, reposition allies or enemies and use whichever buffs benefit the scenario best.

Pawn talent will also help smile

Or, you could take any single handed melee weapon and Battering Ram and Battlestomp in addition to Shield Throw and have some damage and knockdowns and movement?

In the game as in reality, fighting without a weapon is not wise. wink

You know, in reality you can use your hands or the shield as weapons.

You can't get Sucker Punch with a shield. Even if your "main hand" is free. biggrin

And it's a shame. Ambidextrous doesn't work either with only a shield equiped, so no Scrolls + Shield mage.


Maybe you can try a mix shield + all spells scaling with Armor? Or just a stat weapon?
