In a game where items now play a huge roll in a characters skill/power level, I thought it would be an interesting discussion of what PvE templates would work the best if you had to be naked ... or at least wear/use NPC vendor sold items only. The first obvious choice is some kind of Taming build as your pet does all the fighting so your personal stats are not as important. I personally have never played one, so maybe others can elaborate more on this. Second build that jumped out is Bard build as you generally have monsters kill each other, again not relying on personal stats as much. At GM levels I have been pretty successful testing this using store bought lute, wearing only a robe, and primarily focus on melee monsters to kill. Archery also seems to be a good warrior build. With Chivalry(EoO), Bushido(Honor), and Anatomy(50%) you get a lot of bonus damage that doesn't require any special items. Keeping your distance is a good thing to keep health up. GM Resist skill will bump your overalls to 40 as cheap armor normally would put you in the 20's. I started thinking about all this while deciding on which character I wanted to do on Siege. My though was, at least to start, the more powerful I can be not needing special gear which I'm bound to loose at some point is the way to go. Anyone else have suggestions/comments?
