Deprived allows you to switch builds easily and be 95% as effective with them as their most optimized class. Look, at SL 125 a deprived can use the Prisoner's Chain and have 40 VIG, 40 END, 33 VIT, 66 STR in addition to 10 in every other stat. That's a potent Strength build right there. Or at that same SL the deprived can have 40 VIG, 34 ATT, 40 END, 15 VIT and 60 INT with 10 in the remaining stats. Now you've got a legitimate Sorcerer build.
Deprived can't min max but it can do everything well, which is suitable for players who don't want multiple characters.
