FORWARD:
I originally posted this build in the Paladin forums where it evolved from a 4p/8s back in January '07 to it's current incarnation of 2r/2p/10s. Given the rising popularity of BattleMage builds, and the fact that there are now far more Sorcerer levels in this template than melee levels, it seemed appropriate to migrate the Arcane Avenger to the Sorcerer forums.
The original post and some (mostly) out of date discussion was recently wiped out with the forum purge :(


I've posted non-raid item maximum values.
The build once assumed +4 items, then +5 items and one or two tomes... It now assumes +6 items and +1 tomes, as these items are quickly becoming the 'norm' for Elite toons, which this build is in it's most effective incarnations. Adjust accordingly for your own gear and/or expectations.

If you want a build that has something for just about EVERY situation, look no further...


Evading Arcane Avenger
The Raging Blurry Strength-based 2handing Flame-throwing Evading Holy Dervish


Drow
Lawful Good
Rogue 2 / Paladin 2 / Sorcerer 10
(alternate: Rogue 2 / Paladin 3 / Sorcerer 9).
(alternate: Robe-Wearing Dwarf with massive Hitpoints and Axe Enhancements)
(alternate: Reconstructing Warforged)


Ability Point Distribution (adjust however you like, but i'd stay away from Dex/Finesse)
17 Str (28) +3 ability raise, +6 item, +2 favor tome) Effectively 30 thanks to continuous Rage spell.
12 Dex (22) +6 item, +2 drow enhancement, +1 rogue enhancement, +1 tome)
11 Con (18) +6 item, +1 tome) Effectively 20 thanks to continuous Rage spell.
11 Int (12) +1 tome at LEVEL 1 for additional skill points
9 Wis (16) +6 item, +1 tome)
16 cha (26) +6 item, +3 sorc enhancement, +1 tome).



Feats:
------
Toughness
Slashing / or skill focus: UMD
Extend
Power Attack
Maximize
Improved Crit: Slashing @ cap raise

Power Attack is viable based on availability of Divine Power Clickies (check the jewerly section of AH).
Also, with this builds UMD score you can scroll Divine Power (32 UMD) without fail.


Essential Enhancements:

Paladin Toughness I
Sorcerer's Charisma III
Arcane Fluidity I (minimum for 5% asf in mith chainshirt)
Dragon Blood III
Elven Dex II
Rogue Dex I
Sorcerer Fire/Cold Enhancement IV
Drow Spell Resistance III SR18 (optional)
Rogue Skills Action boost I (+2)
Paladin Attack Action Boost I (+2)



Spell selection:
---------------
sorc 1: shield, expiditious retreat, jump, MM Alternatively: Mage Armor
sorc 4: Blur (use scrolls & wands of stoneskin)
sorc 5: Scorching Ray (use scrolls & wands of stoneskin)
sorc 6: Haste (use scrolls & wands of stoneskin)
sorc 7: Resist Energy (20 point) + Displacement (use scrolls & wands of stoneskin)
sorc 8: Firewall (use scrolls & wands of stoneskin)
sorc 9: False Life, Rage, Stone Skin

self-buffed UMD------
8 charisma
3 golden cartouche
4 greater heroism
1 Rabbit Gloves
17 ranks
2 rogue action boost
-----
35
with SF:UMD 38


AC
----
10 base
9 - +5 mithral chainshirt
6 - 22 dex
2 - chaosgard
3 - spec optics
3 - Barkskin potion
1 - haste
1 - paladin aura
4 - shield spell
-2 - Rage
37 self-buffed while Raged and 2hand fighting.

8 bab
9 (28 str)
4 heroism
1 haste
1 Rage
+5 weapon
1 slashing
29
+6 with Divine Power clicky/Scroll
+2 with paladin action boost running.


On a side note, I find +28 to be a decent number for all elite content. You have to boost now and then for tough mobs, but you hit quite well enough overall. you can scorching ray, firewall, or MM impossible-to-hit mobs if necessary.



Base Damage--------
15 str (28 base + 2 for rage = 10 x 1.5 for 2hand weapon rounded down)

Synopsis:
This Rogue Sorcerer Paladin combo allows for Elite-capable levels of to-hit, damage, SP, HP, Saves, moderate AC, Evasion, and wand-whipping/LoH healing, enabling him to be versatile in a multitude of rolls. Backup healing, backup arcane dmg, and off-tank all the while providing solid DPS support.

Given the reduction in importance of AC, Arcane buffs can have a tremendous impact on survivability, and this build shines by handing out Perma-haste, Stoneskin, Blur, and Displacement.
He’s a dervish in combat who, while not completely immune to fear, will almost never fail a save against it. He laughs at spells and traps and is often the best suited group member to lead the way. When everyone in the party but him wipes, he can raise the dead on a 1. Also, with but a few points into Open lock and a +10 or better open lock item he can pop open the average door or chest. Traps on normal are usually not a problem if you can equip level-appropriate items. Not that you particularly care about traps with his reflex save, but it's nice to help the clunky tanks through.


Highlights of the build:
# Tremendous saves combined with Evasion and SR18. huge survivability vs casters and traps.
# 1138 spell points to spend on Haste, Displace, and Rage. Groups will love you as you turn your party into a blurry blender of death.
# 2hand str dmg with solid ac and the best arcane buffs to keep you alive. your UMD score enables you to use Divine Power scrolls and support Power Attack. You will be competing for kill counts.
# Arcane damage with Firewall, scorching ray and magic missile. you don't have imp. crit yet, but standing in your firewall goes a long way to making up for it.
# you can scroll just about anything you would want to.
# has nice balance, jump, open lock, concentration, UMD, diplomacy, bluff, haggle, etc. Very versatile.
# Evasion with a 30 reflex is just plain fun.


Downfalls/weakness of the build:
# 20 point resists
# Dispel can be annoying, but not as crippling as you may think as you can pretty much re-buff yourself without depending on anyone else. Honestly, it’s more annoying when my Pure paladin gets dispelled!
# The cost/time involved in equipping him for maximum effectiveness.
# Scroll costs for stoneskin (though i do loot a lot of SS wands).
# Relies on (self) buffs for to-hit bonus and dmg reduction/avoidance.


Tips for levelling:
# carry around a stack of bulls str until you can A: buy the buff from house P/J. B: wear +4 or better str/dex items
# carry a stack of heroism potions until you can equip planar gird(s) or reliably scroll Grtr Hero.
# carry the highest +X weapon you can find for your level for hard-to-hit mobs.
# get yourself a greater aberration bane weapon for beholders after they dispel you.
# you can scroll Haste and Rage fairly reliably at level 3 sorcerer. it's only 30 seconds, but still nice.
# You can scroll stoneskin reliably enough at level 3 sorcerer. though multiple <10's are annoying.
# map often used spells/abilities to keys like E, F, G, H, V, B, T
# be sure to rub it in a little when you out-kill the other "pure" melee'rs.


Going 32 point Dwarf:
positives:
# gain about 100 HP putting you into the 300's
# slightly more to-hit and damage with axe enhancements

negetives:
# no built-in SR, if you are utilizing this on the drow build
# hard to spread action points into fire dmg enhancements - you will lose out on a minor amount of arcane dmg
# without twilight mithral armor you will have spell failure in armor, so you wear a robe with lower ac, thus you get hit by trash mobs unless you're always displaced - whereas the Drow version can get away with a long-lasting blur most of the time because he has 40 ac. Not needing displacement all the time frees up more mana for offensive spells.

the 32 point Dwarf HP and Axe enhancements are very nice, but a drow does just fine.
The most popular Dwarven Wizard Battlemage can be found here:
http://forums.ddo.com/showthread.php?t=105658

The final option is a Warforged Variation - this is a very potent character as you take self-sufficiency to the extreme with the Reconstruct spell. You can heal yourself for about 120 points a shot with this spell. you also gain some nice immunities, though they aren't as important to this build due to very high saves.
You can also take Mithral Body and the Inscribed Armor enhancements to have a decent AC and no spell failure.
If I wanted a 32 point non-drow Arcane Avenger, Warforged would be my first choice.
The down side is a lowered Charisma.

Cheers~

Hey Rentz, I respecced Illusionary into improved two-weapon fighting, and finally got level 14. Three words:
I am invincible.

That is all.

are you primarily using stat damagers?
he's str-based, right?

No actually he's dex based using rapiers and shortswords with 22 strength to inflict damage. In hindsight, I may have wanted to go strength based and cap out at 22 dex to fill out the mithral chain, but whatever. He's kicking some serious butt, and really doesn't take damage.

If I ever feel the urge to "perfect" him maybe I will reroll, but right now I don't really care.

And no I don't use stat damagers I currently use a +2 Icy Burst Rapier of Backstabbing(+3) and an acid shortsword of destruction, or swap out for a greater banes if I happen to have a rapier/ss combo.

yeah the melee caster builds are nearly invincible with the only problem I've noticed being damage output. Top elite stuff just takes too long. That's why I decided to go with 12 sorc / 2 pally

My str is 26 now (cap 28, 30 buffed) and I am just barely keeping up with the other DPS builds. Combined with firewall, I tear it up at melee, faster then any other tank or tanks combined while at range I hit as hard as the next pure caster with scorching ray or magic missile. I'll take my rogue levels when the cap goes up heh.

I am a 2 hander user. Just not enough feats to hit hard with magic AND spend a lot of feats on melee.


(extend, maximise, empower, power attack, improved crit)

It's just a different playstyle, though. Sure a mob lasts a little longer, but he does less damage and it ends up not mattering. I'm dual-wielding weapon-finesse based 2rog/4pali/8sorc. I have one damage spell, magic missile, for the off-chance I can't hit something very well (or I just want to hit it from far away).

My damage output isn't that of a barbarian, but it's enough to kill things, stay alive and have a good time. I'll tell ya one thing, my saves are completely outrageous.

what level are you? I have been running DDOChargen it says I need a bab of 8+ at level 12 get improved Crit. The only way I can figure I can get improved Crit is with 4 levels of polly, is the generator wrong can you get it with only a bab of 7 in the game? if so have you done it?

jkm
08-06-2007, 10:24 AM
he can't get improved crit. he doesn't get a bab of 8 until level 14. the only way you can get a bab of 8 by level 12 is to take 4 pally or 3 rogue/3 pally

Wisdom 8
Charisma 13 +3Enhancement +6Item=22 (+6)

Skills:
Concentration 24 +Item = Enough
Use Magic Device 26 +3Cartouche +4GH +2Boost +1Rabbit Gloves=36

Level 5 (Sorcerer)
Level 6 (Sorcerer) Maximize Spell
Level 7 (Sorcerer)
Level 8 (Sorcerer)
Level 9 (Sorcerer) Extend Spell
Level 10 (Sorcerer)
Level 11 (Sorcerer)
Level 12 (Sorcerer) Power Attack
Level 13 (Sorcerer)
Level 14 (Sorcerer)

Other noted abilities:
Evasion, Lay On Hands=72 hp's, Smite Evil

Enahancements:
Enhancement: Paladin Attack Boost I
Enhancement: Rogue Skill Boost I
Enhancement: Dwarven Axe Attack II
Enhancement: Dwarven Axe Damage II
Enhancement: Dwarven Constitution II
Enhancement: Dwarven Spell Defense I
Enhancement: Dwarven Toughness I
Enhancement: Sorcerer Elemental Manipulation IV
Enhancement: Sorcerer Energy of the Dragonblooded III
Enhancement: Sorcerer Charisma III
Enhancement: Rogue Dexterity I
Enhancement: Paladin Toughness I
Enhancement: Sorcerer Wand Mastery II

Spells:
L1 Jump, Tumble, Niacs, Shield
L2 Blur, False Life, Scorching Ray, Resists
L3 Haste, Displacement, Rage
L4 Firewall, Stoneskin
L5 Cloud Kill

AC:
10 base
9 - +5 Mithral Chainshirt
6 - 22 Dex

vs. Giants +4=45

To Hit:
8 BAB
9 STR
4 GH
1 Haste
5 Weapon
2 Enhancement
=29 Regular Mobs
=30 vs orcs and goblins

+6 with Divine Power clicky
+2 with Paladin Action Boost running
-5 Power Attack
=32 Bosses
=33 If boss is an orc or goblin

This build really needs one more level to shine. (3rd ray for scorching ray, 30-point resists)
The key to making this work is hot keying divine power clickies to keep you BAB = to a fighter.

The idea is to stand in your own firewall or cloud kill while dishing out damage.

Pros:
+You can UMD heal scrolls on a 5 or better
+Wand Mastery II boosts your CSW wands
+AC is respectable
+Evasion with a reflex save high enough to matter
+Raise Dead scrolls without failure,
+You can spam yourself (and the party with stoneskin, blur, displacement, haste, GH (via scrolls until level cap increase), false life, rage, and resists.
+72 hp LOH for that uh-oh moment
+300 hp's with buffs
+1100 sp on a mellee dps

Cons:
-Relying on Divine Power clickies for hard to hit mobs
-Pugging

my bad, I have toughness at the moment instead of improved crit but planned on switching it. I do have a +8 bab at 14th but I don't know if it will let me swap it heh.

Now I'm all nervous to switch it lol. Perhaps I'll just wait for 15th level and take it then.

the key thing about running an ooman is the ability to keep your rogue skills high

str 16 + 3 levels + 1 human adapt + 2 tome + 6 item + rage = 30
dex 9 + 1 enh + 6 item = 16
con 15 + 1 tome + 6 item = 22
int 13 + 1 tome at 1st = 14
wis 8
cha 15 + 2 enh + 1 greater adapt + 6 item = 24


you get 1 extra feat, the ability to max search ranks and the ability to add 11 ranks to disable device

np Ladywolf- I credit Wiglin for saving it. :)

the Dorf looks great Wig -
the only downside would be the bit of arcane failure in a mith chain shirt. how's that working out for you? i've been playing with 5% on my drow ('cause i haven't bothered to buy the II and III failure enhancements yet), and it's been tolerable.

of course, when you get to the gianthold you can always swap out to a robe, but i think the AC very worthwhile outside of GH.

wiglin
08-10-2007, 11:27 AM
The 10% doesn't really bother me. I see a failure every now and then, but not enough to really matter.

The eventual goal would be to get the seven finger titan gloves for +5 UMD and -10% arcane failure. This will get arcane failure in a mithril chain shirt down to 0%.

I will be going with Mummy Wraps at level 8 so thier will be a little decrease in ac, but fearsome affect is well worth it at these levels, so from level 8 to whenever I swap them out I will be sitting at 5% failure.

I don't think its worth spending the ap to get fluidity III, 5% is plenty tolerable for this type of build.

yeah, i agree the 5% is pretty tolerable. you fail the odd haste, no biggie. only annoying if you fail a maxed/extended firewall. :)

what you need is my guild-mate's +4 mithral twilight breastplate for non-GH quests. :)

my dream setup for this guy if i ever get playing more than i am now:
-Belt of brute str (+6 str, grtr false life)
-Ancient Band (heavy fort, +3 protection) --everyone and their dog wants it
-Seven fingered gloves (+11 DD, OL, +5 umd, -10% asf)

anyways.

L2 Blur, False Life, Scorching Ray, Resists
L3 Haste, Displacement, Rage
L4 Firewall, Stoneskin

AC:
pretty bad. have an alternate version going for AC. mainly use a fearsome robe

To Hit:
7 BAB
10 STR
4 GH
1 Haste
5 Weapon
+6 with Divine Power clicky (have 2 goggles of 5 charges a piece)
=+33

+2 with Paladin Action Boost running
-5 Power Attack
=30 (28)

i went the tough route on leveling depending upon spells for protection. level 9 is when you become insanely powerful -> haste + displacement + divine power.

edit: one other note is that this is more of a barbarian build than a fighter. for a fighter, i'd take a hit of 2 points on str to disperse them throughout the build.

Old thread, but I'm late to the game.

Any thoughts on how to spec a wforged using 32 pt build?

having the minuses on both wisdom and cha make the drow/human template unusable.

thanks

Actually, check out this thread (http://forums.ddo.com/showthread.php?t=116254) by buildmaster Nick. The original build is posted in a dwarf template, but he discusses using warforged in the thread. His current Arcane Psycho is a WF.
