We had one for Fallout 3. Why the hell not have one for New Vegas? Well, what do we know about levelling up in general? You have your regular perks, you have companion perks and you have challenge perks. Unsure of any quest perks yet. With only gaining a regular perk every second level, you're looking at selecting 15 perks from a list of 88, so there's a lot more weighing up. You also get 10 + 1/2 your Intelligence in skill points per level up, with half points carrying over. So with that in mind:
Kamikaze - I'll happily suffer a -2 DT penalty in exchange for more AP.
Tagged: Guns, Lockpick, Repair
Priorities: Energy Weapons, Guns, Lockpick, Repair, Science.
2: Intense Training. I would argue the extra SPECIAL point is worth more than any of the other level 2 perks. Black Widow/Confirmed Bachelor could have a case made for them though, given the majority of male enemies. I don't think Retention is worth it.
4: Educated (INT 4). An extra +52 skill points to spend? Don't mind if I do.
6: Comprehension (INT 4). An additional skill point for reading books and double the skill points for reading magazines.
8: Strong Back (STR 5, END 5). What can I say? I get overloaded easily.
10: Finesse. A free 5% Critical Chance? How could you say no?
14: (Light Step?)
16: Better Criticals. (PER 6, LCK 6). +50% damage with critical hits isn't anything to sneeze at.
18: (Action Boy?)
20: Grim Reaper's Spirit. The 20 AP instead of completely restored AP hurts, but I'll take what AP I can get.
22: (Concentrated Fire?)
24: (Center of Mass?)
26: Nerves of Steel (AGI 7).
I figure the best choices for companions are Raul and ED-E. The hope is that Regular Maintenance is a great companion perk and does slow down the item decay significantly. Enhanced Sensors should be useful for Nightkins and in general for wandering around in open spaces. Boone's Spotter perk has been of debatable value, but I have to admit, the guy is awesome with a sniper rifle, so I'll probably alternate between the two.
What is everyone else doing?
