Communism Type: Warrior Role: Fuel Tank or Turbocharger Communism is a warrior skill tree aimed at those who seek a slow, plodding but productive life in the Worker's Paradise Dungeon. Theme: Is Hunt For Red Dredmor! Strategy: A warrior backed by communism seeks to build his own superior gear (often imitated by Imperial Capitalist Scum) and fortifies himself with the greatly increased strength that comes from honest work in a communist paradise! Side effects may vary. Pros: Communism is the warrior's survivability tree par excellence. Sure, other archetypes offer you more and better survivability buffs than pretty much anything else available to warriors, even the quite good Shield Bearer and Master of Arms trees. This is mainly because of the Socialized Healthcare and Vanguard Party abilities, which offer large increases in health as well as smaller increases in healing speed and stats. Plus, the activated heal, which isn't great for fast healing, but will still give you many HP over time as it's basically a healing potion every 80 turns. Also, given some of the really crippling debuffs out there, like ennui, the ability to strip them for potentially less painful Communism debuffs is kind of handy too. Powerful, simple to make head and torso armor is another big plus. But what really makes the tree outstanding is the Vanishing attack from the first level. It's basically a free attack that also gives you three turns to jockey for position, eat or otherwise heal. Pretty spiffy. Cons: You will often be hurting yourself with the General Winter proc unless you stick with the Ushenka/Power Ushenka the whole time, which may be a turn off. The random debuffs from some of the skills can sometimes catch you with your pants down, particularly the ones that sap cold resistance. The Bomb is a pretty lackluster capstone and on the whole the skill tree doesn't offer you much in the way of offensive options after the first level. Synergies: Vampirims loves Communists because of the all purpose healing and health regen boosts. Anything that needs more AA will love Iron Curtain, and masters of the Necronomiconomics may find the ability to change one curse for another useful. Takeaway: Join glorious revolution to beink overthrow lich lord through sheer weight of morally superior worker's army! Or be rottink in gulag. Choice is yours!
