I wonder if a Kungfu Dryad (w-w/o disease) is fastest for a non kaldur character. I was below 2 minutes for guardians with them.

Claws are pretty dang fast.

 

Dual Leech claws with Denedaran takes two SS/DB/FR combos to take down absolutely any one in the game, even the Momma Guardian.

Gogo's ice elf did it in just over 1:30.

The best is based off of opinion.

 

The sickest time I have ever seen is olocat's DW Dryad Build.

 

here: Duel Leech Dryad

 

The master compilation melts the games elite at just under 1 minute & 57 seconds. 7 game elite in all. That is 16-17 seconds per boss on average.

 

Somewhere in the neighborhood of 12% LL.

 

Insane!

 

I remain, Etherian

I think the Sacred 2 seraphim' was awesome. A massive improvement on the original S1 version..........IMHO.

 

 

 

Alas... this was one of my first real dissapointments with the game... Combat Arts. I was waiting for years for a powerful reboot of the Seraphim's Celestial Light, and what we got in Sacred 2 for this seemed to be nothing better than a flat, lined effect.

 

In fact, most of the Combat Arts from Sacred 2 were a bit flat... does anyone miss the Battle Mage's Fireball too?

 

 

It's rapid-fire, gunning effect, gooooooooooone

 

:)

Watching this makes me want to install Sacred...again!

I liked the Battle Mage's ring of fire...the visuals and the sound were great.

Exactly re the Celestial Light!!

I didn't expect anything so flat too. Was a big dissapointment for me first time I fired it off, but later on I understood group play, and guess they had to make concessions with how much could glitter all at once from everyone... though playing with those dark elves with a load of effects going off at once is still pretty memorable.

 

So arcadey and wonderfully social!

After the number of games I've played and having gone through every class, I still don't have a clear winner for either poll. At the moment, I'm grinding it out with a pyro and ice elf respectively, and working to toughen up my temple guardians here and there, so still got some work to do.

Now this is a pretty difficult question (getting back on topic)...

 

The thing is, they're all pretty awesome once you get them up and running. The trick, I think is to find their special super power and make use of it.

 

The Seraphim, for instance, is best dual wielding - she's like Ancaria's answer to the Veg-O-Matic.

The Shadow Warrior is great at stealth, sneaking up on baddies and bashing them upside the head with his 2 handed hammers/axes.

The Dryad is pretty incredible with Darting Assualt and a good blowgun.

The High Elf is great at spamming waves of fire or ice.

The Inquisitor is good at using the Force - Clustering Maelstrom + Levin Array - GREAT mob killer.

The Temple Guardian is great at one shot kills with Dedicated Blow

The Dragon Mage is great at clearing the screen with Energy Blaze.

hmm... interesting question, but a little information is missing.

As Sacred "also" offers multi player, is this meant for PvE or PvP?

Nearest guess would be PvE, but I like to nit-pick...^^

 

 

The thing is, they're all pretty awesome once you get them up and running. The trick, I think is to find their special super power and make use of it.

 

That's an important point. "once you get them up and running"... which probably isn't level 25 or so.

 

Reasons why I chose seraphim for both options are:

 

Bfg rocks from the beginning to the end. If the 3 buff built is chosen (Battle Stance, Bfg, Warding Energy), and if they're halfway properly skilled, they can be played mouse-only. Which hurts "fun to play". If the 2 buff built reliant on Divine Protection/Dashing Alacrity combo is used, then it's a bit more interesting. Not by much though, since recasting isn't that complicated.

 

The reason why I prefered seraphim over elf on the power scale was the elemental damage focus the elf needs to have in order to match (sometimes surpass) the seraphim. If (again) the enhancement mods for the Bfg were chosen, one mostly deals physical, working on all bosses. Crowds will not go down as quickly as with the elf, but the seraphim compensates with Pelting Strikes/Soul Hammer combo, one-hitting 3 opponents in close combat, which also reduces crowds to nothing very fast.

I'll give you that - but in reality - the Seraphim is MUCH better with dual wield and a couple of good, sharp blades/axes/clubs. Add in Pelting strikes and most mobs are reduced to nothing in very short order.

 

Pelting Strikes with BeeEffGee is ok - 2 shots max though per use. Pelting Strikes with dual wield and good blades = 6 hits per use - especially when modded correctly with double strike. This will take mobs that are equal to your level down in very short order. Champions 1 - 2 hits, regulars 1 hit.

 

But then you've got the Dryad.. Her blow pipes with Darting Assault, and LL of any kind is AWESOME to watch as anything hostile becomes dead in 1 - 2 shots. Ravaged Impact works good on champs or bosses.

 

Or the Shadow Warrior - His forte is Stealth.. Add in a big ol honkin' 2 handed axe and he's unstoppable. OK.. It's kind of boring after a while, but it gets the job done... Scything Sweep + Shadow Veil (buff) = 5 - 6 dead mobs in 1 click.

 

Or the High Elf - Blazing Tempest spammed = crispy enemy critters...

 

Or the Dragon Mage - Correctly modded for max Area of Effect, and Energy Blaze can clear an entire screen in short order.

 

Or the Temple Guardian - Dedicated Blow knocks enemies into next Tuesday.

 

Or the Inquisitor - BEST combo in the game - Clustering Malestrom followed by Levin Array - Anything that survives getting sucked in gets fried.

 

So as I said, they're all fairly awesome...

My daughter considers the ice elf as the most powerful in the CM-patch:

temporary invisibility

Boss killing CA

and since the ice elf uses faladal set which has +CA range a nearly full screen ice storm is possible at high levels

Hey why does this thread pop up every week or so as newly updated when the last post is August 27th? Is it designed that way somehow? Or just a random forum bug?

I really wonder why the Inquisitor is last. At least in the CM-Patch he can doublewield x% lifeleech fist weapons and can attack with an amazing 170% attack speed. So lack in boss-killing which was one of his drawbacks is no more.

Mass-killing: since double-wield is taken for boss killing he can also use two Nlovae-staves with extended combat art range. Add the ca-range boosting sigil set and he is able to get nearly the whole screen into the black-hole effect. And more enemies affected is more damage done, so it is a double-win.

Haven't played an inquisitor in the CM-patch yet, but he should be last I think. Add that I like his character class quest most.

I did have a lot of fun playing Inquisitor, but I found him kind of squishy in HC, or maybe I didnt play enuff with him? Dryad is maybe squishy too, but that instant travel speed with the blow pipe made it worth the difference.

Well - Inquisitor

AddOn and staff lore = hitting everything in a 180 degree angle instantly, given that you can hit a target in melee range

If not playing free games:

Collect immortal companions so they get a share of your damage

Bosses

The CM-patch brought fist weapons which can have the x% life leech modifier

 

I do really hard to compare a 2008 Inquisitor to a 2014 one with Ice and Blood and the CM-patch.

Inquisitor is my least favorite character. Favorite, so far is a tie between staff wielding seraph and dual wielding SW.

Try BFG Seraph hehe.

500k crit insta-gibs +100k energy shiled with insane resists and block on level 190.

And dont forget 100% damage mitigation from all sources (almost total invinciblity), which Seraphim can get....

Yeah, Seraphim is OP.

The poor Inquisitor just doesn't get any respect. What's not to love about a character with lines like "Die heretic!", or "Death comes for you".. :lol:
