The 2H Crossbow Paladin Skill Build Guide for Gothic 2 Night of the Raven

Welcome to the skill & build guide to a Two-Handed weapon wielding Cross-bow Paladin in Gothic 2 NotR.

This guide aims to reach:

Strength 160

130 Dexterity

100% Two-Hand-skill

95% Cross-bow skill.

It would be possible to play this character as a Dragonhunter as well. You just need to skill 2 strength more since you will miss out on an elixir that you gain from Neoras that gives you +3 strength but will also gain one more of Thekla’s Stews (+1 strength). You would also need to think about the extra LP it would cost to learn how to pull Dragon scales, Dragon blood, and Minecrawler plates (if you want the armor).

*The amount of Goblin Berries relies on the amount you find from Paladins. Paladins can either drop them after you beat them up, have them in their trading inventory if they are a merchant, or have them in their inventory if they are already dead. You could theoretically beat up every Paladin in the game to get the maximum amount of Goblin berries (it is random for each playthrough though).

Total: 50 LP

Remember, you do not need to follow this guide to the letter, just make sure you do not take too many of the permanent bonuses before investing all the LP into training as crossing a certain level of a stat makes training it cost more LP.

Also, make sure to have a properly optimized and enhanced Gothic 2 Installation with Spine
