My copy is set to arrive tomorrow! I haven't had a chance to look over all the different classes and races, does anyone have a good suggestion for a 2 player count?

Hi.

Try a striker (except for Summoner, he's a bit tricky and i played him wrong - check out the thread about him), and something that helps along.

I played with the rabble rouser and the hunter and they worked pretty well together.

Don't worry too much and enjoy the ride!

I've started my first 2 player game with the rabble rouser and nomad and seemed to be on top of things, although I'm only 3 turns in

I tried the Elementalist solo for my first play ~ but had to stop because I think he doesn't do physical damage only energy so he couldn't be used solo !

I believe the Elementalist can do Health Damage too with his Pattern Burn ability. In that case it's only half of his Energy Damage and he does not trigger the siphoning of Energy/Health if used to damage Health.

I may be wrong, though.

Aside from that, every character can use his basic Attack ability and therefore deal Health damage.

I'm currently playing solo with a Divine One and a Summoner.

As mentioned above, the Summoner can be tricky to play with for a beginner - it's taken me a few turns to get to grips with the abilities. That being said, having the ability to summon an open encounter enemy to fight alongside you can be quite beneficial!

The Divine One plays well as an all-rounder. Mine may have been helped by lucky power-up cards but it's got a strong basic attack, can heal and resurrect a fallen ally.

My first game I was an Ogre Brute and Half Elf Guardian. Not a bad combo, limited on innate healing and ultimately died due to poor planning.

My second game was Gnome Tinkersmith and a Gray Dwarf Summoner. They did pretty well together (provided I got their abilities right).

All in all, I think just about two classes will work well together - it'll just be a matter of playing to your strengths and not stretching yourself too thin.

The first game I won had a Brute and a Priest. The brute got some MAJOR damage in (that's a lotta damage) while the priest constantly defended and healed the brute.
