Just to mix it up, I tried a 2-H Warrior STR / END Build with Adaon (on Normal). It started off as a way to test out the availability of 2-H weapons in the game, and grew from there. Note, it was an extreme STR / END Build. Only trait points invested in STR and END. That limits quest options and advanced skills. Makes for a pretty durable, high damage build. Taken on the final boss with 1,000 hitpoints and hitting for 200 damage is pretty nice. Screw the parasite!

1) With either lucky exploring or out-of-game knowledge, one can get the Wild Thunder pretty early. I got it at Level 4. Getting it that early skips a lot of 2-H weapons. It might be worth having the quest to get it locked until level 9 or so (after the Fort).

2) Alternating between whirlwind and charge, I found I could clear a lot of early dungeons with taking little to know damage. Most enemies could be killed in one hit. Alternating between them allows for a pretty quick dash without having to wait for skills to recharge.

3) I needed a +1 PERS item to be able to progress the 3 vs. 11 quest, I couldn't complete the Mathrisian Codex quest due to the +3 INT trait check. Even a +2 INT item would be enough. If I didn't use Adaon as a companion, I'd miss out out a few areas that require a +2 AWA or Adaon check.

Overall, it was a pretty fun build. Combat was easy. Finding secret doors, and learning rumors was a pain. Adaon helped there a bit.
