This is the character I used in my first play through of DQ2 (HoF). I had originally fought my way through to the final Boss encounter of Act 3 but failed miserably to take down Evin Daala due to my Speed being too low. I was also finding it impossible to beat Krakatoa in the Act 3 Team Battle with the help of my Shadowstalker from LoS. I decided to give up.
Since then, I have played through LoS again and finished with my favourite character build yet, a Necromancer (also posted in this thread). Deciding to take DaBoss' advice (see below), I went back to fight Krakatoa with the help of my Necro - and won (yay!)! So I was able to proceed with the help of some gear changes and I finished HoS.
So here she is - Freya the Warrior Drake in her final incarnation. Probably the least favourite of my three characters so far but I had fun playing a Warrior and I intend to take a Rogue through my next run of HoS.
Name: Freya (Prophecy/Demon Claws/Demon Spines/Demons Blood/Elysium Soaked)
Career: Drake (Searing Mantle/Fiery Temper) - was previously a Brigand
Stats: sp: 14, br: 19, ma: 0, ar: 5, Health: 55
Head: Mourn Helm (2sp;2br - Impale)
Cloak: Shroud of Nightmares(2br;1sp - Confound)
Gloves: Spider Grips (1sp;2br - Sure Grip)
Chest: Kraka's Casing(2sp;4ar - Thorn Armour)
Feet: Slime Skimmers (2sp;2br - Webbed)
Main hand: Ravenos Bringer of Ruin (5br;2sp - Deep Wound/Sear/Silver Frost)
Left hand: Calcite Claw (4br;2sp - Piercing)
Talisman: Drake's Spirit (1sp - Drake Career/Charm/Heal)
Necklace: Corroded Pendant (1sp - Rust)
Ring: Ironbeard Band (2br - Counter)
Ring: Grieving Soul (1ar - Fire Aura)
Notes: So there we have it - I've played each of the three paths in DQ (Mage and Rogue in LoS and Warrior in HoF) and all of them have made it through to the end with the Necromancer being my firm favourite so far. I am hoping to see a lot more of the Terral Jungle in my next playthrough of HoF.
Wish me luck
