Path of Achra – General Tips for Most Builds

Generic Advice on What Most Builds Wants

There are going to be exceptions to what I talk about, I’m going to be listing the overall rules.

Have a Defense Mechanic

A defense mechanic is strong simply because, with enough investment, it can prevent 90% of most damage:

  • Armor is typically added to strength builds
  • Block can typically be added to any build, but is generally harder to add
  • Dodge is typically added to dex builds

But Only Have One Defense Mechanic

  • In most builds, it’s hard to add a second mechanic to reduce damage.
  • The reason why you don’t want to stack multiple ways, is simply because, there are things that bypass said mechanics.
  • So once you have your first mechanic to reduce damage, if you want more survivability, that’s when you want to focus more so on max health, healing and resists.
  • Most builds typically want to increase their health.

Build Around Synergy

  • This game is all about having a lot of things interact with each other to boost your overall strength instead of just having one thing that is really good.
  • You can have a entire build built around one thing, but that thing is typically built around having other things.
  • A generic way of building around synergy in this game is, while not limited to, inflicting a type of damage.
  • And then when that type of damage is inflicted, have something else that procs off of that type of damage.

Increase Speed

  • The more speed you have, the more actions you get to take in a game turn.
  • Something with 20 speed will act twice as fast as something with 10 speed.
  • While 10 speed will act twice as fast with something with 5 speed.
  • The standard way to increase speed is either by leveling up dexterity to increase the natural speed
  • Or by leveling up a mixture of strength and dexterity to increase your minimum speed

Plan Around a Prestige Class

  • Prestige classes can be viewed in the power menu.
  • Prestige classes provide a lot of synergy to build on top of, and are generally just really strong when built with.

I hope the above information was helpful!

Being a big gaming fan, I believe that I have a lot to share with other gamers. I got my first official job in the game industry in 2005 and continue to develop there. It's a true blessing when your passion, hobby, and job combine into something one. My favorite console is the Nintendo Switch. I think you can all guess why. Because I just bought a Steam Deck. I love playing on PC, but my main love for me will always be Xbox. Anyway, it's complicated and simple at the same time. After all, I'm back in the days of the ZX Spectrum (1994)…
