Hey,

New to the forums and still learning how to play the game. I play with 2 other heroes who are Avric Albright as a disciple and Syndrael as a knight. I was playing as Grisban The Thirsty as berserker. We started playing a couple of days ago and have not been doing so good. We lost in first blood, Fat Goblin, and Fat Goblin encounter 2. Before we start a new mission the overlord claimed that the last mission was to easy and something must be wrong. With that being said he is allowing me to switch my character, Grisban, for someone else of my choosing. We (heroes) had trouble during Fat Goblin encounter 2 because of the Shadow Dragon. The Shadow Dragon has an ability called "shadow" which is something along the lines of…an adjacent hero who attacks you must spend 1 surge or it is a miss. Considering we all are melee, we had trouble killing the dragon before Splig came after us and escaped. But it also did not help that the overlord found Federick on the very first interrogation.

Anyway sorry for rambling. My question is which Character and class should I choose to best help my group (heroes)? I was thinking about being Tomble Burrowell because of his hero ability. Still debating on Wildlander or Thief. I have recently been reading some forums and is now considering Widow Tarha. She seems more balanced because of her attributes compared to Tomble. I know all attributed add up to 11 but hers seems more spread out. Some people talk about how strong her familar is, and how slow. But he would seems useless if the OL will continue to attack him because he is a glass cannon.

My OL loves to attack and attack some more on who has the lowest health. Playing as Grisband he would either attack Avric of Syndrael because they both are at 12 hit points compared to 14. Once a person is hurt he looks to see who has the most damage and continues to attack intill they are knocked down/out. So basically if Syndrael has 3 dmg compared to Avric having 2 or none, he goes after Syndrael with all his minions.

Short in simple.

What char and class is recommended that will benefit my group the most? If you have someone else in mind feel free to speak your mind and why you choose him or her. I plan to be range and do my best not to be in melee range. If possible stand behind my team mates since they have more health and shields. Run out attack run behind cover.

Change Syndrael Knigh for bersek

Change Grisban Bersek for Jaine wildlander

Change Disciple for spiritspeaker

I think bersek is better than knight and spiritspeaker with a group of 3 i think is better than disciple. Of course dont choose a thief in a 3 mans groups…maybe in 4…maybe…but never in 3 complice

I can see the change for Grisban for Jaine as a wildlander. I think I see what you are saying for Syndrael and the Disciple but not 100% sure. Is it bad to play Descent as 3 people with a tank, healer, damage dealer in mind? That was what we were aiming for. What makes you like spiritspeaker over Disciple and Beserker for Knight? More damage the better then having a complete balance group?

with 3 mans you need 3 things:

1) Movement, for that is very good jaine and the wildlander (syndrael and avric have 4 too, so they are ok)

2) Damage, for that the best is the bersek, so syndrael bersek is perfect

3) Heal all people, for that the best is the spiritspeaker that have more skills with "withing 3 spaces of you" and very very powerfull skills like tempest + ancestor spirits.

Syndrael Bersek + Jaine Wildlander + Avric Spiritspeaker is the best combination i think. You have a tank, a healer and a ranger that is very powerfull and fast.

Okay thank you for your help. I doubt the OL will allow all 3 of us to make class changes. I will probably end up going with the wildlander because of the extra moves or the Necro.
