Evaluation[edit | edit source]
As with all henchmen, Stefan will attack whatever the party leader is currently attacking. Keep this in mind if you're using effect-on-hit skills (such as Mark of Pain) to maximize your body counts. Be aware that if not already fighting, Stefan immediately engages any enemy that attacks a party member, be it by melee attacks or ranged spells. This means, of course, that he will very often rush right into the middle of an mob, drawing aggro from more enemies. If he is your only frontliner, keep him alive at all costs, as he's the one who'll be trying to soak up all the physical damage.
- Deals a fair amount of damage.
- Can withstand damage quite well.
- Has a self-heal in the form of Healing Signet.
- Less affected by knock-downs (late-game mobs) and critical-hits (high-level mobs) thanks to Balanced Stance.
- Has less damage output than Little Thom.
- Has pathing issues around corners when enemies are in the way (similar to melee enemies trying to get to spell casters in the party). If trying to reach an enemy around a corner/bend and there is another foe in the way, he will often be stuck in that foe and do nothing. The problem with this is that while stuck he will not heal himself or use stances, making him a softer target.
Dialogue[edit | edit source]
- "Are you here to just talk, or is there some real bravery in that gut of yours? My sword is sharp, my shield is strong, and I'm itching for a good fight. Are you going to stand there all day, or are we going to go find some trouble?"
