The Sweet Talker Build
Speech is a powerful tool in The Outer Worlds and the purpose of this character build is to prove it. That isn’t to say that you won’t get to fire a single shot throughout the entirety of the game. The people of Halcyon can be a little stubborn to deal with. Let’s get into it:
- Attributes: x3 Intelligence, x3 Charm
- Skills: Persuade, Lie, Inspiration
- Tier 1 Perks: Precision, Deadly Demonstrations
- Tier 2 Perks: Tag Team
- Tier 3 Perks: Don’t Go Dyin’ on Me!
Starting with Attributes, you need to put all your Attribute Points into Intelligence and Charm. Not only will you be able to have increased Critical Hit Damage and shorter ability cooldowns for your companions, but the Attributes will also directly affect your Skills.
Speaking of Skills, Persuade is arguably the single most important one for this build. With it, you’ll be able to have increased chances of inflicting Cower on human enemies and gain Armor while doing so. Inspiration is there to help you make the most out of your companions. And lastly, with Lie, you’ll be able to control Automechanical enemies and using them to damage other enemies nearby.
These Outer Worlds Skills should ensure that you don’t have to get down and dirty. Finally, coming to Perks, there are a few options at your disposal that you can play with. The recommended above should allow you to make the most out of your companions and deal decent damage when it comes to you.
