I've avoided warforged in DDO because I have my aversions. One of the biggest was that in PnP they were so overpowered it wasn't funny, my DM even barred them from play, and I just was never into them, but in my recent experimentation with different builds I've found myself wondering if a forgeling might be fun to play.

Not going caster, but I was looking for some ideas, and suggestions for WF Barb. Either 2-hander, or 2-weapon wielder. Both sounded different from what I usually play.

At any rate time grows short for me, and any input would be much appreciated.

Ive been playing for almost 2 years now and avoided WF because I thought they were dumb. 1 year into the game I made my 1st one. His name was Clockwerk and he was the 1st character I had managed to get to 10th level (the cap at the time). I no longer play on that server (khyber) so Ive since deleted him and given away all his goodies....he was a solid built High DR WF.

4 paladin/ 6 fighter I went heavy on STR & CON and a 12 on dex for the +1 bonus which was the best I could do with the adyman body.

His AC was well into the 40's, a DR of 9, had a lot of HP (at least I thought so till I built my dwarf) and the combo of being a pali & a WF made him immune to posions, fear, level drain, negetive energy and so forth. He was very functional......


I had no charisma so my pali-feats were useless (no LOH or Divine Grace bonus or spells) but I didnt think about adding a charisma item or tome.
I can think of a few things I would have done to tweak him out a bit but I you go with this combo Im sure you will figure out the right stat combo for you.

My most recent WF build is 6 cleric/ 2 fighter will finish off 8 fighter levels. I took the lord of the blades feat, use bursting scimitars and a keen greatsword ...... he dishes out some serious DPS but I feel like I could have done better with him...on the verge of deleting.


id say go with a pali/ fighter combo just to get used to the feel of a WF.... if you like it go from there................be prepared to buy lots of Pots

if you go 4pali/ 7 fighter/ 1 wizardyou can at least use wands Take the Wiz level 1st...goes quickly

starting stats (not accurate because I dont have any info in front of me ATM)

Str - 18 (get it as high as u can +2 level increases, +4 item, +3 feat bonus = 27 end ..you can do better Im sure)
Dex - 9 ( +3 item at to take advantage of +1 bonus to AC)
Con - 18 ( +4 item, +2 WF feat, +1 level increase = 25 end)
Int - 9 ( get a puzzle cap for using your spells, which will likely fail anyways and throw it away after 1st level)
Wis - 12 (the +1 will save is helpful)
Cha - 12 (+4 item gives you +3 to all saves end will save is over +10)

nothing extreme here - you could make it Uber if you have the right gear.


Hope this helps.

Had a "Clockwerk assassin" on khyber for about 6 months...from 8 months after launch. He was deleted after 10 th level because I stopped playing on khyber. names free now its yours unless someone else took it already.

NICE!!!! :)



You took sorc instead of wiz which works out better with the pali's cha. and still get wand usage. Good move. I'll keep that in mind when I rebuild my WF. I dont think the Bladesworn transformation is really impressing me for 1 min at at time every 10 mins. Not worth it for the drawbacks Im taking with my build. I wanna work 2 weapon fighting in also.

Yeah I'm not getting it for this build either but... one of the other klockwerk builds will be ... but that's a battle cleric. I just took the basic enhancment ... well mostly for kicks but the extra +1 to hit with Greatswords could be nice... I might respec out of it at some point.
