King’s Bounty 2 is a major departure from the original series, combining a huge open environment with the basic Might and Magic gameplay. Even yet, some aspects of the series remain the same, such as the ability to choose a character class at the start of the game.
There are three characters to choose from, and you’ll have to think about what sort of adventure you want from King’s Bounty 2.
Which Character Should You Choose in King’s Bounty 2?
When you first start King’s Bounty 2, you may select from three characters: Elisa, Katharine, and Aivar, who serve as a Paladin, Mage, and Warrior, respectively.
The character you select will have no effect on the plot, but it will alter the speech you hear from them. I’d suggest the Mage or Paladin if your choice is based on how your character will behave during the game. The language of The Warrior is extremely dry, and the terrible voice acting doesn’t help matters.
In the end, though, it’s the gameplay changes that will most likely influence your decision.
Mage vs. Paladin vs. Warrior in King’s Bounty 2
The most important distinction to be aware of is that Aivar the Warrior cannot study magic, while Katharine the Mage and Elisa the Paladin can.
The Warrior can still utilize magic in combat by utilizing scrolls, but he can’t study or enhance such spells for later use. To compensate, the Warrior’s troops get a significant increase to their stats. Here’s a brief rundown of each course.
- Warrior — Has a +3 Warfare stat at the start, making troops stronger. Battles also provide +10 percent XP to units, +5% damage to units with injured members, and Power Balance reduces the penalty for combining Power-type troops with others.
- Mage – Has the greatest arcane strength and can learn all kinds of spells (Air, Earth, Ice, and Fire). When assaulting, units have a 25% chance of taking an enemy’s buff. Finesse balance reduces the penalty for combining Finesse and other units.
- Paladin — Units get +5 Armor and +5 Resistance during the first round of combat, focusing on protection. Can learn Light and Life magic, and can recruit most troops quicker than a Warrior or Mage.
Each character is designed for a certain playstyle, with Katharine the Mage being the most powerful in the long term. However, playing as the Paladin or Warrior may make the first few hours of King’s Bounty 2 a little more challenging.
