I love playing around with the different types of characters. Anyone out there have an off the wall build that is fun to play, or even one you'd like to play? Then, post it here. I don't even care if it wouldn't be super effective on elite in the upper levels as I play so many characters so slowly it will probably take me years to reach the high end content anyway:D

Just keeping the game fresh.

Something like this was posted in the Cleric forums and promptly shot down, even though I had a similar idea at pretty much the same time. So I designed the following and think that it would be fun to play, or at least different.

Basically, I figured that you'd play it like a Rogue. Yeah, you probably won't be able to get the highest Elite traps (though maybe you can fiddle around with the skill points and get the Open Locks), but you'd have Divine Power, a little sneak attack, use Find Traps to help augment your Search skill, and good tools to help with Disable Device and Open Locks. You could probably do without the Paladin levels, but they do help on the saves and make you immune to fear without taking an item, plus you can cast Heal every 10 minutes and Lay on Hands until the cap goes up and can cast Heal in truth.

It may work, it may not. I'm not really sure at the moment, but I think it has promise. You can go fight, heal, and get most locks/traps while leveling, meaning that there's always something that you can go and do.

Check out the wizard forum. Theres a couple nice battlemage builds in there, and a few on the sorc forums as well. They are all mostly wizard or sorc levels, with one or two levels of fighter/paladin or rogue.

Tons of fun to play, mine is lvl 11 (Warforged of the Stick in the sorc forums) and a blast to play. Truthfully, once you try one of these you may never go back to a straight melee.

I have quite a collection of funky builds. Two of my favorites that i still play with are a 7 barb 7 wiz dwarf named Boulder and a 2 fighter, 5 wiz, 7 cleric dual wielding dwarf named landslide. They are both extremely effective and a blast to play.
Boulder is a min max 28 pt character that i originally built to handle the two switches in VoN 5 back when you had to have str and int to get through the doors. Landslide is a 32 pt character that has every stat above 22 except cha, and took most of his feats towards using dwarven axes and dual wielding. Both are buffing builds based around keeping myself jacked up on spells and then entering combat.

I have created some others, but these two have by far turned out the best.

Well I have a 1/3 sorcerer/paladin that I hope to add monk to when they add monk and yes I have composite skin should be good immune to most things that bug you at those levels good saves vs those other things. I did think of doing 4 levels of paladin though. and yes he is a 32pt build

This might be better as a 2pally/12sorc, but I just whipped it out in five minutes while offering a suggestion to someone who wanted to do something similar with a human dragonmarked character.

all I have to say is 2 lay on hands, 5 Heals, 6 Cure Serious...etc

I haven't played since the initial period after launch. One of the things I did not like was that enhancements were tied to class level and not character level.

Is that still true? If not how did they change how they could be selected?

Now it depends on the enhancement. Racial enhancements depend on your character level, while class enhancements depend on your class levels.

Not exactly sure what you would call this build, I called it Sweeney VI. Played him in Extreme Explorers and had a lot of fun before he died at level 5, I usually get my Sweeney builds killed around level 5 trying to solo things he really shouldn't be soloing :)

The dragonmarks let him heal in an emergency, CE and intimidate lets him get aggro off the other squishy's in the back, and the Sp can be used for some extra CC, damage, or buffs, whatever the group is lacking
