An old post by donkatsu mentioned this for the Adventurer:

"Corrupted Strength + Arcane Combat + Corona = Melee attacks triggering spells triggering melee attacks triggering spells ad infinitum."
Has anyone tried something like this? I'm trying my first Adventurer with this style. ...But I am not good at figuring out synergies.

-So far I have this-

*CLASS TALENTS*
Celestial / Eclipse
For Corona

Technique / Magical combat
For Arcane Combat

Corruption / Reaving combat
For Corrupted Strength

Corruption / Scourge
For two handed melee spells
Should I have grabbed a tree with regular melee attacks instead?
Do I maybe need both?

Corruption / Vim
For Vim management


*GENERIC TALENTS*
Spell / Aegis
Heal and shield

Technique / Combat training
Thick Skin at least


I fear I am showing my amateur status and lack of creativity. Oh well.

reaving combat is capped to 1 attack per turn IIRC, or at least not infinite

No category to give you a TK slot either? Would be a good boost in damage, being able to wield a staff in your TK slot.

Yeah, so far as I'm aware corrupted strength/arcane combat recursion is supposed to be fixed/capped nowadays. If it's actually doing the melee->spell->melee loop you've probably found a bug, heh, or at least a balance issue that was intended to have been plugged up.

Cool; thanks folks. I'm going to see about the TK slot and hope to find a few short staves. Not sure how this build will pan out but I will know soon enough!

For the record I'm not looking for infinite free attacks. Just hoping for some decent synergy and a fun play style....oh, and a build that has at least an ok chance to survive.

Oh damn. Looks like I need to kill Subject Z as a Yeek in order to unlock Mindslayer for TK skills. If I am wrong please correct me. Otherwise, I guess that's my next quest!

Tometips says corrupted strength only triggers when you cast spells that cost a turn, so there should be zero synergy with things that trigger free spell attacks.
