Void Gauntlet and Ice Gauntlet are mid-ranged mana using weapons with the strongest crowd control abilities and area of effect damage. Their only weakness is lacking movement skills.
This weapon combination is effective at every range and has a high burst single-target DPS, enough area of effect damage, and crowd control. But at the same time, they both got thrust type of damage weak against Lost and Angry Earth-type foes.
Hatchet can be paired with Life Staff , combining both high survivability and damage. It is mainly good for PvE farming.
Musket and Rapier weapon combination is effective at every range and has a high burst single-target DPS. But at the same time, they both have thrust type of damage weak against Undead type enemies and don’t have AoE options.
This weapon combination provides massive firepower because the Ice Gauntlet sets up enemies to be hit by the Fire Staff’s abilities. The downsides would be that you do not have a melee option and are going to be bound to your mana bar for damage.
Hatchet and Great Axe is a great combination. Hatchet is used for single targets in PvE and for healing while Great Axe does a great job of getting close to foes and area of effect damage.
What do you need first to become a paladin? No, not the fair Lady. No, not the celibate. And apparently not them both at the same time, but you can if you do want. Who said you need shining steel pants? Who said this? First of all, you need a shining steel Shield.
