Need a good Haruspex build
« on: 18 October 2018, 05:58:48 »
Hey guys im new here, so i am playing on ps4 I believe that is the AE edition.
My question is maybe a few, are they viable?
Im leaning towards spear/shield is this better than bow because of the nerfs?
Stat placements? I have read something about an int Haruspex.
I also have a harbinger but idk i few like Haruspex can hit harder with spear.

welcome to the forum.. i wrote the int haruspex.. it's actually str + int haruspex with a few dex.. great survivability but it's gear dependent.. a spear or bow haruspex is more beginner friendly.. but frankly, for a spear toon I'd take warden over haruspex

edit: warden with high attack speed and maxed shield attack procs

Welcome to the game and to the forum.  :)  I think a Warden might be more "safe" than an haruspex for a first character if you don't know the game at all.  Also much easier regarding distribution of attribute points as you can just go str/dex 1/1.  And while a spear may be good, always keep a bow to hand for tackling foes that melee characters may have trouble with.
Spoiler for Hiden:
boss on Mount Olympus is hard for melee characters, but with a bow you can run up the ramp, fire off a couple of shots then retreat down the ramp again.  It's slow work, but can be done.

i should also add that the caster haruspex is better played with ragnarok because of throwing weapons (specifically neith's will).. to my knowledge ps4 doesn't have ragnarok yet.. it also requires a bit of knowledge of the game, as with most casters
Spoiler for Hiden:
but the survivability is great.. every attack is AoE CC, has petrify with high recharge, can easily reach 1k+ DA with throwing weapon, has CTAP, can perma study prey, and best of all can abuse monster lure.. but it can get boring because it's a one skill attack, and enemies don't really hit you so you just watch them attack monster lure while you kill them.. and the few that get to you, you can easily petrify.. if i hadn't get bored playing it i could've finished x3 with zero deaths :)

I see warden does sounds interesting this game is fun to play kinda like diablo 2
I do have a lvl 47 harbinger but that spear/shield warden sounds good too
And yea sucks we don’t have ragnarok
But ty for the responses guys do you guys have a warden build i can try out

There are a couple of old TQIT Warden builds here

https://titanquestfans.net/index.php?board=8.0

should translate pretty well.  At least they'll give you some guidance.

haven't read the guides but one note:

batter used to be bugged in TQIT, like it causes a delay on your attacks or something.. so people used to not like batter for LMB

but I've read reports that it has been fixed in AE.. so if it's also fixed in ps4 version, batter should be a good LMB skill
