It really helps if you non only post your build but why you made it the way you did so folks can help you achieve what you want.

My first impression is "Why Warforged?" And "You don't need nimble fingers for this guy."

I got bored of my repeater build... Just not effective at high levels.

Yourt Spot is Lacking.....

Heck, for a "Skill Mokey" build your lacking a lot of Skills.....

at 22+ Items and andy additional Dex, your balance is way more than it needs to be... 20ish with an item pretty much guarantees you'll get up first save.

I made the build with the abillity to use repeating crossbows, Always wanted to play with them and I figured a good way to keep myself safe was to strike at range. Also I wanted the traditional Rogue skills that would allow me to disable, open locks and sneak attack.

As for why Warforged, I love the race. Figured it would be fun to play and honestly I'm sick of drow. Why not nimble fingers? I was thinking the bonus's would do well to help disable ect...

Agree'd. Spot is lacking. Corrected to assist spot. I will also have items to aid my spot.

12fighter/2rogue or13 bard1ftr warchanter build is the best way to do a repeater build as they cap out on damage early onbard songs and good hope make a big difference and fighter weapon spec and greater weapon spec do the same any other way isn't going to do much for you in the damage department.If your gonna debuff then anything will do.

Thanks for the tips life!
I'm leaning away from your second option as I really want to have a rogue-like char.
The first option also seems like it would limit my skill's, I'll build a comparission and try it out.

Ok that helps!

Nimble Fingers is indeed good for Disable and open lock, but generaly you only need it on a character that isn't very good at those things to start with. Most rogues can easily get good scores in those two skills without needing any feats. The feats are most helpfull if you feel your Dex and Int or enhancements are going to be sub-par and you need to shore up those skills. Your character has lots of Dex and Lots of Int and a strong selection of enhancements so he/she should be fine without needing that feat. It isn't hurting you to take it but if you wanted another feat then you could do it and still be quite good at doing traps and locks. You might consider taking Skill Focus UMD instead as there are few other wasy to increase that skill and it would be very helpfull for you in the long run.

Thanks Sig,
Was worried about my low umd (damn WF cha penalty...) and if you think I can get away with without nimble fingers I'll use skill focus umd that'll make a difference!
