Is Utilitarian a good 2nd Inclination for a Fighter?

If Snow ends up like my first pawn, Gray, he's not going to have much in the way of 3 star enemy knowledge. So if that's the case, should I even bother with Utilitarian, or is the 2 star knowledge, which I'm sure will mostly contain melee knowledge, be good enough to make him effective?

I don't think it will matter. Are you hiring other pawns, or just going with a party of 2? The pawns you hire will use the tactics they've learned and end up earning him 3 stars on most of the enemy classes over time. He may hack at an armored cyclopes' leg uselessly at first, but he'll get it eventually.

Anyway, a lack of foe knowledge has never stopped me from hiring a pawn. I mean, I know what I'm doing, so all they have to do is play along.

I'm hiring others. Mainly Baku's and my own. So Utilitarian doesn't matter much? I was originally thinking Mitigator/Scather. Gray has Challenger/Scather and he gets the job done. I just figured Mitigator/Utilitarian would be a nice mix-up from Challenger/Scather.

Well it's not like you're stuck with the inclinations, even when you want to be. I find Utilitarian more useful to magic and bow classes, as they have more options than just swing or block.

On a Fighter, just make him charge in there and do work. ;)

I just thought maybe he'd block and use the shield more to knock people down. Alright, I'll go Mitigator/Scather.

I'm not sure if Mitigator/Scather is a good idea, since I recall talk on this board mentioning that it makes the pawn flip-flop between attacking strong and weak foes. Perhaps you might wanna try Mitigator/Challenger? Since some weak foes use ranged attacks like enemy mages, which fits both inclinations.

Oh, right. I think I remember that now too.

I use Scather/Aquisitioner. So I can load him up with potions and he can heal himself.
