I'd actually suggest going the other way -- use Red Hand for the first ten or twelve levels or so, then switch to Kitchen Stove.

Hey. Is it just me, or do my balls itch?

That's exactly my plan! I'm currently trying to decide between dual wielding battle axes so that I can use Magran's Favor or using quarterstaffs for Chromoprismatic. Leaning toward quarterstaff currently but not sure.

I think the quarterstaff modal doesn't stack with the wizard deflection buffs, but having longer reach and Escape opens up a lot of positioning opportunities. Plus the Chromoprismatic staff looks fly as hell

3) i'm getting some weird stuttering when new models load in, and long load times in general. but i have quite good hardware. is that just the game, or are there ways i can improve my performance?

I had similar issues that resolved when I reinstalled the game on an SSD. Some areas also just perform a little poorly in general, like a decent number of the cities or boarding actions.

Red hand kinda blows after the most recent patch. I think now you want 1st weapon set kitchen stove + scordeo's, 1nd weapon set Eccea's / Gryphon's Blade with the bonus spell damage enchant (this is one reason I don't want to do another run till they've patched the "no random encounters" bug).

How did they nerf Red Hand?

You lose the stacked effect if you switch weapon sets, so you have to commit to using it and only it.

There are probably some builds that it's still good for but considering how much the game encourages weapon switching and how many pierce-immune enemies there are, it's no longer endgame-category for ciphers.

Fun Shoe

I'm really enjoying my Herald. There have been several fights where all or almost all of my party has wiped but the Herald just keeps on trucking and clutches it out. That shield that gives health regen + ancient memory + zealous endurance + lay on hands just makes him survive forever. And now that he has the Ogre summon he contributes pretty effectively in terms of party damage too.

I've also been regularly taking Tekehu along and having his healing spells + the Herald makes the party pretty damned durable unless the enemy has tons of burst damage. If it's at all an endurance fight I'll outlast enemies every time.
