>> Jaffai’s very useful info about “max consecutive hits with Perfect Focus”
There’s something I want to supplement.

DIFFERENCE between Wildman and Hedge Knight
wildman ==> + 10 max fatigue, +5 resolve
hedge knight ==> +10 melee, +10 Melee def

I actually forgot Wildman could be better alternative than Hedge Knight.

Max consecutive 2h hits with Perfect Focus ==> [Wildman 9hits/Hedge Knight 8hits] = 1.125x
Max melee skill ==> [Hedge Knight 105/ Wildman 95] = 1.10x

There can never be too many hits. But 105 melee skill will reach 95% hit chance most of the time, so the excessive/unnecessary melee skill is wasted. As pure DPS melee brother, Wildman is a better alternative than Hedge Knight.


>> Max resolve = 45(Perfect roll)+10(Fearless)+5(Drunkard)+5(Cocky)+15(Background)+40(levels)= 120
With rally u get 120/2 = 60
With 3 of these you get 180 fatigue per round.

Theoretically correct, but should be practically incorrect(slightly). Due to limitation of initial position and distance, only few brothers can actually benefit from all 3 Rally brothers while delivering damage efficiently. Unless all of the attacking brothers are using ranged attacks, or they wait for enemy to come extremely near.

Also, you must be blessed if you can actually get a duo from [fearless, drunkard, cocky]. So far I’ve never gotten one but I know it is possible. I have a brother with Strong and Iron Lungs but I doubt I’ll ever see one with both traits again.

Most importantly, I have a question. Has anyone gotten a recruit with 3 traits before (yes I don’t mean the founding member)?

I guess you already knew all these stuff. But I just want to point this out to make the presented values more practical and meaningful.

There are two forums members I want to tear them apart.

NewAgeofPower ==> reason: I used to choose Hunter as ranged brothers. Then he made me realized I’m an idiot Sellsword is a better choice. So I ended up going through hell to raise lv1 recruits to lv11.

Jaffai ==> reason: I used to choose Hedge Knight as pure DPS melee brothers. Then he made me realized I’m an idiot Wildman is a better choice. So I’m hesitating if I should go through hell again.

By the way, can any Samaritan confirm two values for me?

What is the best initial melee skill for recruit(exclude traits effect)? 54 or 55?
What is the best initial max fatigue for recruit(exclude traits effect)? 105 or 106?
