I absolutely do not plan to go raiding. Just solo play, occasional partying with friends, or some random dungeon.
I'd take Sovereign Host as my religion.
Would using a shield (and some shield feats) impede my solo ability, or not? Or only slightly? Or would it make soloing dreadfully slow, as compared to twohanders?
Do you get the benefits of attacking with a shield without the Two Weapon Fighting feats? I'm inclined to think so, but you do suffer full TWF penalties in P&P... I want to make sure.
Is it possible to wield a longsword in two hands? (As in P&P?)
Finally, I'm doubting between this build and a Tempest Ranger for soloing. Which would you deem most fun/soloable?
Which things should I get with my Turbine Points?
Thanks in advance!
