Hey guys! I've been wrestling with a decision for a while and wanted to know what you all thought of it.
My group is made of three players and one overlord. I'm running Avric as a disciple, another player is running Grisbane as a breserker, and the final is running Jane Fairwood as a wildlander. I've primarily worked on healing, but the group often finds itself in combat that is hard to handle with just a warrior and a ranger, so I try to plink away with my mace.
I've expressed interest with my team in acquiring a sword as to better help with the combat. I'm not planning to stop healing my allies or anything like that, I just want a better chance of doing damage to the large scale creatures such as dragons. Grisbane's player is cool with it, but Jane's is expressing some very reasonable doubt considering that the mace has the ability to stun monsters, which has saved us a couple of times in the past. I can equipt a different weapon each turn, so I could still switch back to the mace, but I might choose the wrong time to enter slaughter mode.
What do you guys think? Should I just keep with the mace and leave the sword out of mind, or should I go for it for the damage output that it could give me?
Also, any good Avric strategies? I would like to futher my abilitiy with him, considering I am going through campaign with him. I currently have Armor of Faith, Cleansing Touch, Leather Armor, and the Relic Shield.
TL;DR: Is a sword for Disciple a viable option? Also, Avric Strategies.
