For this build I have in mind your typical no-nonsense juggernaut type of character, which I plan to power through all the way to niobium where I intend to get 100% map completion an side quests, so keep in mind that I will spend most of my time on this difficulty. I want to dislodge my axe from skulls and laugh, I want enemies to hit me and still laugh and I want to ride a hell gorilla and, you guessed it, laugh.
First things first, skills:
1) Tactics Lore
2) Armor Lore
3) Hafted Weapons Lore
4) Death Warrior Focus
6) Malevolent Champion Focus
These first skills are pretty self-explanatory, and I plan to take them in that order.
I want to start on silver difficulty, I figure I won't need that much survivability so early on in the game. Toughness is there to complement Armor Lore since one skill gives a flat bonus and the other a % bonus. Constitution I plan on raising to 75 for that sweet combat HP regen.
9) Speed Lore - The bonus % for attack and defense that comes after bonuses from gear and other skills. Items that give a bonus to attack and defense could be swapped for other, more worthy bonuses. Also I hate missing attacks.
10) Blacksmithing - I figure I'll get it to 152, don't know if I'll use a blacksmithing suit or not.
As for stat distribution I might go str 60/ vit 40 or 50/50.
