|Skill 3||Shield Bearer|
|Skill 4||Artful Dodger|
With unarmed combat using kicks, you can equip a shield in each hand, greatly increasing your survival chances. This is furthered by the addition of the artful dodger skill, which gives the highly under-rated knightly leap ability; together with high crossbow skill and an endless supply of bolts thanks to Tinkering, this allows you to beat any enemy that doesn't have a ranged attack without exposing oneself to attacks.
Also, since both Archaeology and Tinkering give great trap affinity, the player will keep a great supply of traps to use against bosses and Zoos (Remember that you can kick traps through doors to hit mobs in a zoo).
DSSCRA: Just wanted to say I have never seen knightly leap be under rated quite a few builds take artful dodger solely for knightly leap.
Lokiron: "(Remember that you can kick traps through doors to hit mobs in a zoo)". So how do I do this excactly? :-)
Shoutenkou: @Lokiron, place a trap on the ground and use Throwing Buffalo Tech. to move it.
Lucat4r13o: I believe it's also useful to replace archery, deadshot, and tinkering with vampirism, assassination, and berserker's rage.
