Skills for Lumberjack/Hunter

Postby BoogtehWoog » Sat Jun 14, 2014 10:07 am

I am interested in playing a lumberjack/hunter, but I'm not sure what I should choose in terms of skills. Thanks in advance!

I'm thinking bludgeon, woodcraft, hunting, butchery, and shortbow.

Probably want to add sole-wield, unless you want to try to learn it in game.

The rest looks fine though.

Need forage to find the trees themselves.

So basically, it's hard to fit lumberjack and hunter together unless you want to make some semi-notreallytooimportant-sacrifices.

Pure lumberjack: woodcraft, forage, bludgeon, shortbow
Pure hunter: hunting, butchery, bludgeon, shortbow
Decent hybrid: woodcraft, butchery, bludgeon, shortbow

Sole-wield is really not needed for any of these, moreso considering like no weapons can be gripped in two-hands at this point. Therefore, even dual-wielding weapons with no skill would be more effective.

I'd even go as far as to get down on my little knees and beg you to just make a plain lumberjack. As far as I know, the game isn't exactly strapped for hunters at the moment. :?

Wouldn't it be neat for the new players to have a list of general professions with the the skills that would be needed, going from basic-4 skills,intermediate-6 skills,intensive-8 skills? Noting which skills would be required and which might make the role a little easier or fun.

There's already a thread for that, tho. Not really with the required/extra skills part, but just listing the general skills.
