Hello forum! Just picked up the game on sale, but it's been on my wish list for a while. I understand that this game is pretty unforgiving when it comes to builds, so I want to get some clear direction before I start my first game.

I want to make my MC the tank, but from what I hear heavy armor sucks and light armor with high deflect is the way to go. I would like to make a one-hand/frost/riposte build. How should I pick my starting stats/skills and what should I focus on when leveling?

Thanks in advance for any and all advice!
