Infernal best build?

RafhardRafhard Posts: 1Member
Hello,

I'm real beginner to Achaea. I played before Arkadia MUD but system here is completely different. Can anyone send me good build for Infernal Human? The best possible for PVE and PVP together.

    No real such thing as "builds" in Achaea. Our version of talents or what-have-you that you'd find in other games are called skills, and the general goal is to complete learning all of them - there's no picking and choosing what works best for you. Your first step towards that should be transcending your main class skills, starting with weaponmastery, then I'd imagine necromancy and lastly, chivalry. For PvE I don't think you'll need anything more than just weaponmastery. For PvP, you'll want all three of your class skills, as and eventually survival and then avoidance as well. The other skills will make life easier for you, but aren't really necessary. I'd recommend talking to other infernals to get more in depth answers regarding what you really do and do not need in the skills themselves.

    Tagging @Exxia @Proficy @Reyson so they can give you some better help. I've never played infernal personally, so I can only give you so much advice haha

    As infernal, he needs to pick a Weaponmastery spec. Plus racial spec and traits.

    I'd say DWC and 2h are best for PvE and good for PvP. DWB is best for PvP. Which you like most will also depend on your style, though.

    SnB sucks for both.

    For racial spec, aim for con probably to start out. For traits, nimble first. Then probably con.

    If you're careful and pay attention while bashing, putrefaction gives you a lovely amount of tankiness; given Infernal has no strength buffs bar fury, I'd personally either take a con spec and the strength trait, or str spec and take the con trait. I was luckily in the position to afford gauntlets from the get-go, so my strength is actually pretty good, but at the lower end, it's not going to be very quick, your bashing, until you get pretty up there in levels. I'd personally avoid having a completely constitution-oriented build (particularly if you're going to play 2h, as it's slow and delivers a single hit, making low strength extra noticeable vs, say, dual-cutting).

    As for pvp, Farrah's mostly on the money. Dual-blunt has some pretty great offensive options, but if you're planning to get artefacts, cost is a consideration (same with DWC), as every weapon is individually purchased and, as the names imply, you use two weapons in both those specs.

    It also depends on what you want to do. If you want to 1v1, DWC, DWB, and 2h are all respectable options, but it mostly comes down to play style. Dual-cutting handles afflictions and limb damage in the most balanced fashion, so, if you don't mind a bit of advice, I recommend you start with that so you can get a good, solid foundation and feel for achaean combat, even if you end up switching specialisations later. I'd also avoid buying artefact weapons til you've at least tried one or two thoroughly (switching specialisations is a 100 lesson investment, vs 350cr for an artefact weapon). 

    Hard to really go wrong though, infernal is a very solid class.

    At lower levels, that raw health will help you more than just about anything. It will have much more effect on your bashing speed than a bit of extra strength, which isn't really going to matter a ton for you until you hit the levels where criticals start getting big.

    And if @Dochitha is right about 2h/SnB/DWB not scaling with strength at all while bashing, then con is absolutely the way to go early on. Once you get some levels under your belt you can use the free reincarnate and free trait respec to switch to something more offensively minded.

    For sure. I think I've noticed a change in damage with DWC, strength-related, but I do admit I haven't bashed as the other specs in any serious capacity, so definitely a good idea to look into that.

    One thing I noticed as an Infernal, back when the Merchants were still in Hashan and I could be a Troll with a billion strength (before traits and racial specialization and new knight), is that magic resistance makes putrefaction do very little damage, so it was easy for me to keep it up for hours and hours at a time. Although it's a mini skill, it's worth keeping in mind after you've gotten some of the basics out of the way, as it can bigly make you great again.

    Does it even still do damage?

    Putrefaction's health drain was removed a few years ago.
