So, I’m brand new to this game, and as is my predilection in ARPGs, I was immediately drawn to pet builds like Necromancer & Occultist etc etc. But I’ve almost immediately run into the same issue I had back when I finally got my hands on a Necro class in Diablo 3, which was that the story just doesn’t seem to jell especially well with being a dark magics specialist. I get a weird dissonance when everyone is talking about the horrors of the dead rising through twisted and evil forces, while my squad of skeletons are doing their little jig right next to them…
Now, I know that as with most ARPGs, the story is only one part of the… Uhhh… Story. And inevitably, I will likely still make a mistress of the dark arts and cackle my way through the hordes of foes, paying little heed to the actual plot that I’ve already experienced. But for this first playthrough, I feel compelled to find something more… Thematically appropriate? But I find myself at a loss for what that might actually be.
Sure, I could just say hecc it and throw together a Paladin or something, but with such a robust character build system, and with the peculiar opening of being the abandoned husk of some malevolent spirit, I can’t help but wonder what else might suit the story.
So, yeah. I searched around and struggled to find anyone discussing this particular issue, and wondered if perhaps some folks in here might have any suggestions as to what path would best suit the tone and themes of the game’s story. I would appreciate any ideas
