From all my playthroughs and builds i make, i think Soldier end game builds usually suffer from Poison resistance, plus Veterancy seems to be one of the less desired passives and usually a one pointer.
Theme wise this skill could use Poison Resistance in my opinion, probably up to 20% on soft cap. What do you think?
It’s actually not. A lot of Soldiers often get way too much DA that you can afford to drop some Physique to Cunning dump for damage/OA and knocking about a 100 or more Physique off heavy armour’s high 1035 requirement makes doing that easier.
This as well. One of the problems I have with making Veterancy good is that it can become another “must have” passive for Soldier users when a good chunk of the time they already have so many passives or skills to invest in that they don’t have points leftover at the end. Shield Soldiers especially struggle with this because they also have Shield Training and Overguard to worry about.
Maybe it’ll add in some variety so the same passives aren’t always picked but when you compare Soldier to other masteries with similar-styled skills, it just comes off as overloaded with generally good passives currently.
Even if its still a one pointer, honestly a lot of soldier sets dont give Posion res. I’m currently trying to plan an Octavius build and cant overcap Poison cap at all without sacrificing so much. At this point im just tired of managing so many resistances. Maybe its just me…
