Rayna the Exalted Warrior

sJgEZy.jpg

Version:

Gold Edition 2.65.2

Community Patch 0150

Community Items Mod 1.2a

Elite Mounts Mod 1.10

Flix’s Music Mod

 

1. Preamble:

Why Rayna? First time I saw the Seraphim in Sacred 1 my mind associated her with the character Rayna Kapec in the Star Trek TOS episode “Requiem for Methuselah”. I believe them to be organic androids, their power comes from bio-engineered strength and advanced technology, and since they can’t age or die from natural causes, it’s the same person in both games. I wanted my Rayna to be roughly the same in Sacred 2: a fast melee fighter with protective spells and a balanced mix of skills.

 

2. Attributes & Skills:

Are calculated for level 75, taking into account the points received as reward from the quests “Ancaria Airlines” and “Feed the Poor”.

 

Willpower                      +76(+1 at every level)

Vitality                          +26(+1 after level 50)

 

Tactics Lore                     75(kept with level until mastery)

Exalted Warrior Focus     40

Armour Lore                   40

Pole Arms                       40

Enhanced Perception      1

Concentration                30

Toughness                     30

Sword Weapons            30

Riding                            10

Warding Energy Lore      2

 

3. Combat Arts, Modifications & Combos:

I use only seven so they fit the available slots without ever changing them or bothering with combos.

 

CA1      Pelting Strikes

CA2      Soul Hammer

CA3      Assailing Somersault

CA4      Dashing Alacrity

CA5      Divine Protection

Buff1     Battle Stance

Buff2     Cleansing Brilliance

 

Modified in this order:

Pelting Strikes                Thrust/Focus/Precision

Battle Stance                 Premonition/Drill/Retaliation

Dashing Alacrity             Bloodlust/Delay/Impatience

Soul Hammer                 Wounding/Battering

 

4. Inventory, Item Modifiers & Mounts:

Pole Arms, Two-handed Swords or regular Swords imbued with the four damage types, the fifth slot reserved to a ranged weapon(Energy Lance or Pistol).

 

Armor sets suitable for this build:

Megalcarwen’s Garments of Mutation

Virtues of the Seraphim

Impressions of Sophia

Twilight of the Gods

Niokaste’s Blade Dance

 

Most useful item modifiers:

+All Skills

-Regeneration Time

+Chance to halve regeneration time

+Chance to evade(also by socketing Celestial Magic runes)

+Chance to find valuables

+Chance for critical hits

+Experience per kill

+Attack speed

+Run speed

+Visibility range

 

Mounts:

Charger(+Chance to evade) replaced by Unicorn

Saber-toothed Tiger(-Regeneration Time: Exalted Warrior) replaced by Volcanic Tiger

 

5. Combat Strategy:

Simple and obvious, nothing sophisticated here. Use efficiently the most damaging weapons while reducing CA regeneration time as much as possible. For defense, other than attributes & skills, use Battle Stance permanently, Divine Protection when needed and increase the chance to evade.

Thanks for a new Seraphim guide for DarkMatters' collection!  You know, Requiem for Methuselah is actually one of my favorite episodes...I remember when I was a kid actually memorizing that one title more than others for star trek "face offs" against others when trying to remember the name of an episode... course... those days were pre-google... :D... methuselah days^^

Here it is, only a sketch, at level 49 after completion of the campaign on bronze difficulty and exploration to the last corner of the gameworld. I followed it to the detail, including my own spreadsheet of skill points distribution(up to 75 and the possibilities beyond).
