Divinity: Original Sin 2 – 13 Builds – Controller – Slayer – Mage – Distractor Team Composition 1 - gameplaylists.com
These 13 honor mode builds are geared towards teamwork. Each class contributes to the team in their own way, and synergize well together.

 
 

Introduction

 
There are 13 builds here. Choose one controller, one slayer, one mage, and one distractor to complete your team composition. 
 
I have a link that randomizes your team composition here: data-in-model-out.com – http://data-in-model-out.com/a-good-divinity-2-strategy/ 
 
Two gameplay insights I’ve been noticing that are key to accepting these builds: 

  • To upgrade constitution or not to do it are both correct. πŸ™‚. If you play the game and never die without getting consitution, others can do the same with consitution too πŸ˜€ there are many ways to win 
  • Think about it, should a fragile character be targetable by all enemies!? No wonder a common conclusion is that we need to nuke down the opponent’s armor and chain CC before they do the same to us. The jump skill just makes it seem even harder to avoid enemy targeting but it’s doable. Some tricks are skills that protect you from being targetted or run in/out of attack range.

 
Build strengths: All the builds are powerful. Fire mages just have so much damage that it’s a fun one to play. Also, juggernaut brings so much to the team with defense and offense. But, I enjoy playing the uncommon strategies of warden and diver the most. 
 
 

Controller – Warden

 
Your primary task is to shield your most vulnerable allies to large spikes of damage
 
The skillsto pick up are prioritized by: Shielding others > CC > Utility > Tank 
 
Starting: Custom elf otherwise Lohse fighter 
 
Points to get: Minimum for skills then leadership. Get memory, and keep constitution 2 levels lower than memory 
 
Talent Ideas: Pet pal, torturer, 5-star dinner, mnemonic, living armor 
 
Items: Any. Most likely a shield and one-handed weapon. Aim for equal magic armor and physical armor 
 
Unique Tactics: Leadership is a powerful passive skill, but to use it you must be within 5 meters of the allies you want to protect. Leadership, blessed smoke cover, and eventually guardian angel are critical components to protecting your friends, and if they don’t want to stay near you, it will be hard to protect them. I recommend either taking your turns right after them by getting slightly less intuitive than them using wits, or respec to another class

Distractor – Diver

 
Your primary task is to dive into the enemies and lead them away from your allies. If ignored by most enemies, you can fight 1-on-1 against mages and easily chain CC them. Play this if you want to help by dividing and conquering by getting them to chase you around. You’re not really a big threat but you’re a nuisance to the enemy. If any class was a troll class it would be this one but hopefully you’re trolling the AI enemies and not your teammates
