Two Favorite Clans and Disciplines?

(1/11) > >>

Talyn82:
What are your 2 favorite Clans and Disciplines?  My favorite clan is Tremere so far and my favorite discipline is Blood Boil.  I intend to try all the clans, but since Tremere were my first I prefer them.  My first character did not have high persuasion so he relied on combat and Thaumaturgy and Auspex.  Blood Boil was fun to use in places like the Giovanni mansion or on LaCroix's human guards.


 My second favorite clan is Malkavian.  I like their Dementation discipline and I like how they a prophetic.  Also I love peoples reactions when player Malk first opens their mouths.



So what are tyour 2 favorite clans and disciplines?

Toreador & Tremere for me. As for the disciplines, celerity and thaumaturgy (I believe that is what the general discipline is called).


Toreador is an easy one for me that most of you know: my favorite kind of vampire and my standard playthrough in general. The Tremere one is probably stranger, they are one of my favorite clans in terms of mythology (I even larped one once) and I love the female character model...

...but I find that the gameplay is a bit tricky: it's a bit hard trying to juggle melee, firearms and constant use of the thaumaturgy abilities. At least it's complicated to me when most of the time I could just "fire away superspeed" and do more than okay  :rofl:

Well the first clan is a no brainer: Malkavians of course. And all of their disciplins. Dementation can not kill a supernatural being, but it can render it useless by putting it into a trance. The only time, that doesn't work so well, is with the Lasombra in the library. He is mostly too far away to use dementation. The fight against the golem is a breeze and even Andrei in warform isn't that hard. Obfuscate is very neat too, especially in fights like the Lasombra, who does a lot of damage. With Obfuscate, you can stay out of sight until you have a clear shot. And Auspex enhances your abilities, what is not to like.
Second place is a tie between Tremere and Gangrel. I like Bloodmagic and Animalsm, both are awesome.

How do you usually manage though ? I'm guessing you have to be up to date with your armors and resistances because the clan doesn't have any defensive abilities, aside from obfuscate perhaps.

To what are you referring to? Malkavians can stun opponents with their dementation ability - and then hit them hard, while they can't move. Tremere have blood shield and Gangrel have a defensive ability. Easypeasy.
