DT Leveling Build for returning player

I am back after years of hiatus so i remember very little about the game so would love some help on what Build is good for leveling a DT. I found some nice guides on DT but they are mostly high level pvp or tank builds.

What should i go for first? planning on going sword and board not talisman. unless Tali happens to me much better for solo leveling

I lvled up a baby dt not long ago, and i found tali to be more effective and not to mention more fun lvling

It’s a long time ago for me now but I remember just going Tali and even tanking all the dungeons like that (I got purist that way even).
