OK, so I am new to the Titan quest game. Me and my brother want to give this game (Immortal Throne on patch 1.17a) a go in Co-Op mode. The catch is, we are both always using melee/tank builds in games. Well, this time he is ok with doing that same thing again, but I want to try something different just for the heck of it. Another reason for this, is so that we arent fighting over items/armor/etc that can apply to both of us. I am hoping that you experts can suggest a really fun pair of characters that we can use. He would need some kind of "in your face" tank type build, and I am looking for something different and am open to just about anything really. I like the idea of bows and pets, but would consider more magical type builds if they work well and cause us not to clash on item pickups. Another thing is, I am not sure if we will play beyond normal mode since we switch games alot, so whatever combo we use should have no problems in Normal mode and be fun to use. Preferably not too complicated to use either this go round. I would prefer characters/builds that dont require really special or very hard to find items to make them work well.
So in summary, to you guys that have played through this game over and over with tons of different builds, if you were starting off for the first time as a new player with a friend in co-op, what builds would you use with the knowledge you have learned over time? Remember, when choosing, try and pick two that dont share much in the way of inventory, so we arent fighting over sweet items that drop. Builds that would compliment each other well. Thanks a ton in advance for any ideas you guys can offer and take care! I cant wait to get going on this
