Dragons Dogma(Vanilla) Pawn Rental

#1GrimKusanagiPosted 10/18/2013 6:12:06 AM
Thought this might be a good idea since the bulk of the community is on Dark Arisen for us to have our own rental thread so we don't have to wade through countless DA Pawns.

Only rule is if you post your pawn try and rent other peoples pawns. And a thank you post would be nice so we know whats going on with everyone.

And remember you can be as chatty as you like or if you need help with something or finding something feel free to ask.

I would like to thank Common Deficit for renting Lashara. Much appreciated. I wish I could return the favor but I'm fresh on a new game and can't even remotely afford to rent yours. Again thanks.

First, you might want to tell folks that you have a mage. I know you mentioned it in your sig line, but if you are listing that info as a template for others to follow, the vocation is quite important to list.

Next, your inclination might not produce the best results. In fact, you might find that your pawn will be casting nothing but healing spells as Medicant in the primary position will have them heal when you take the slightest damage... constantly. They will (comparatively speaking) get few attack spells off. Your secondary inclination of Scather will have them rush to the forefront of the fighting and then engage. That will make their spells more likely to be interrupted. Also Scather tends to promote climbing by pawns. A magic using pawn that has climbed upon a monster cannot cast a spell and is now useless to you. You might want to consider an inclination like Challenger/Medicant or Utilitarian/Medicant to get a bit more distance from the "front lines" and to wait a bit longer before casting healing spells and allow some attack spells first.

Everything you'd want to know and everything that the community had learned about magic using pawns was put together quite well in the sticky "Hiring and Using Caster Pawns FAQ"
http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/626514-dragons-dogma/67313337

Lastly, even though you are a very low level currently, your choice of spells is a bit suspect and could be improved greatly. First, for an elemental buff, you should choose one based on the phase of the game you're in:
- Pre-Grigori ... Fire
- Battle with Grigori ... Dark
- Post-Game ... Holy
- Bitterblack Island (DA only) ... Ice/Thunder

In your phase until you fight The Dragon (Grigori), you should have the Fire elemental buff as most enemies will be weaker to fire than any other element -- definitely more than the Ice boon you've currently equipped. Next, Frazil is a completely useless spell. You'd be better off with getting a quick-casting and ranged spell like Ingle (Fire based) instead. Frigor is a good spell and you should keep it.

You only need 2 healing spells (some say only one), but anodyne and halidom are fine. For that 6th spot consider a spell like Comestion with its large area of attack, or a spell like Grapnel (if you pick Util/Medi for your inclination).

I hope this wall of text helps. :)

Why did you get rid of Frigor? It's a pretty darned good spell. I'd put it in your 6th slot.

Also, if you're not using Grapnel, I think you'll see better battle behavior with Challenger/Medicant.

I am going to get grapnel as soon as I have the points. Which won't take long. Actually I'd probably have it by now but I'm taking a break.

In that case, I would replace Frigor with Comestion as then you would have an ice spell in your pawn's spell line-up. You have 3 fire spells, 2 is more than enough. You also might want to consider getting rid of Halidom and replacing that with a lightning spell like Levin (or Brontide if your pawn has decent stamina). The only healing spell that is useful is Anodyne. The debilitation cures of Halidom can be covered by giving every one of your pawns a panacea or two. Even if you don't want to carry panaceas, the debilitations that Halidom cures are self limiting, and the health lost can be covered by Anodyne (or a health curative), so it really is a pointless spell and a wasted spot.

If I were you, based one what you wrote above, a decent battle-mage spell line-up for you would be:
- Ingle
- Frigor
- Fire Boon/Affinity
- Anodyne
- Levin (or Brontide)
- Grapnel

Aight I'll fix it when I get back to Gran Soren. I'm on an escort mission at the moment.

I'll take your pawn for a spin. I started playing the game fresh again after a year, so I'm only lvl 26. You don't need to worry about my pawn, as she's still a work in progress, but feel free to use her if you want.
