2H Pure Soldier Build... still worth only investing in Physic?

Hi guys,

I know previously people only said invest attridute points in physic is that still the case or with the many patches is it worth investing in cunning at all for 2H melee build?



From my point of view the answer depends on the masteries combinations, build concept and planned equipment for end-game.

In my case I decided to invest 50 points into phys and 40 points into cunning to boost physical, IT and cunning damage for 2H melee battle mage build. I have finished 1 Act on Ultimate and did not meet any serious problems yet (completed Veteran and Elite except port Valbury) and I have a lot of fun with this build.

P.S: Well, I missed that the topic is about pure soldier. By “pure soldier” do you mean to invest all skill points only into soldier mastery or also into the bar of the second mastery?


can be interesting to put some in cunning if you plan to do a physical char, or piercing imo.
