I have been interested in getting the DestinyQuest books many years ago but wasn't able to buy it until recently where I bought the first three books via Amazon Kindle (with the intent of buying the fourth one soon).
My first and current character is more of a loose "RP Build" of Yoimiya, the fireworks-loving archer from Genshin Impact. Her appearance is my current profile pic in this forum . My rules are pretty much:
1. I have to have a bow as a weapon. Though, since I haven't came across any bows throughout Act 1 and Early Act 2, I don't think they exist as weapon types in the first DestinyQuest, do they?
2. Prioritize fire-themed gear, like those that give special abilities like Sear. Though, I've disregarded this rule once when I passed on a ring that gives sear.
Act 1 was a little rough for me since I missed a few opportunities for loot and lost some battles I wasted potions in. It wasn't until I started building Yoimiya's speed that battles became manageable. Though, there have been times when I got too arrogant and expended my special abilities way too early. There was also a period of time when I challenged a particular enemy relatively unprepared, Noldor the First King, and got decimated many times before I had to pause the quest and move on to another until I grew strong enough to vanquish Noldor. Still, he was fun to fight. Other fun battles I had in Act 1 were the three legendary monsters and the act boss himself, the Bridge Troll. The Bridge Troll taught me a harsh lesson to improve my brawn alongside my speed.
For Act 2, I'll have to find out.
As for special abilities, Piercing is a very fun skill, Lightning is awesome, Steadfast actually saved my hide against the bridge troll, and Charm stacking is ridiculous.
