WF Build Compendium

With the crazy immunities, enigmatic histories, and imposing size, Warforged (WF) are my preferred DDO character race! Over the past few years, I have manufactured, play tested, and capped a number of different WF builds that I or others have previously posted on the various class forums. For easy indexing to help other would be WF aficionado’s, I propose that we develop a compendium based upon community posted WF builds.

You are welcome to PM me with a link to your own WF build so we can work on developing a community based compendium. Regards, -Daemonis.

Heres my WF CLeric

On a Side Note, theres an error in your Divine Build.. Recitation does NOT add +2 to Skills as your build claims(COncentration, Heal etc).

01-28-2008, 07:13 PM
Thanks Impact for your wisdom re: the cleric build I posted. I updated the compendium to include your WF cleric. I haven't level up my cleric beyond 6th so far. Its a challenge and often times thankless job. Bless your heart!

At somepoint, I will get to expanding on all my builds to reflect the increase in level cap.

Thanks Kashka and Ebnielsen for links to your builds. I updated the OP.

BTW, Ebnielsen, I see that your build was built around the 2Rogue/2Pally combo, but with the Adamantium body feat, you won't benefit from evasion. Please advise would be players your thought process for selecting this feat instead of mithril body (and hence, enabling evasion). \

Many thanks! -D.

01-31-2008, 10:27 PM

If he took the Mithril Body feat his Dex from base stat and items would have to be at least 18 to have the same AC with Adamantium body. He didn't have the points or item spaces to pull that off. Blackskull also doesn't get evasion until level 13 so its not really worth it.

Great resource- very handy. Dumb question- many of the builds listed are up to 12 or 14. Wonder if you have thoughts about some of those you created yourself, in terms of extending to level 16. (thinking most about the warforgedchanter, but others would be great too)

06-26-2008, 10:48 PM
Hey Miceelf88,
I should work to update some of the builds I've manufactured. You are absolutely right. Unfortunately, I have been short on time as of late. One of these days I'll get around to it. Thanks for your interest! -D

Is it possible to request a sticky for this thread?
It's invaluable to those of us who love the WF

06-26-2009, 11:06 AM
Ah, nice thread. I'd like to request the addition of my Arcane Knight (http://forums.ddo.com/showthread.php?t=182069).

The Forged Intimidator (http://community.codemasters.com/forum/showpost.php?p=4659344&postcount=11) Intimidating tank
The Reconstructor (http://community.codemasters.com/forum/showpost.php?p=4940167&postcount=339) Repair bot + nuker
The Invincible (http://community.codemasters.com/forum/showpost.php?p=4747417&postcount=78) Cleric soaking build

There's an addition to the list.

EDIT: the builds are made by me (Lyrach) and Yargore (Sickness)

06-29-2009, 07:38 PM
Sorry, I've been away from the game for a bit of time.

I updated the compendium to add two new builds, the Arcane Knight and The Monster by Aspenor and Absolute, respectively.

While Absolute also outlined 3 other builds in his post, 1 was human-focused, and the other 2 were not arguably substantively different than what has already been posted previously by other builders. In contrast, The Monster is an innovative build and stands alone as novel addition to the compendium.

Oh, forgot the caster wasn't a wf ^^.

Would be better if you used the EU link to the Monster build (http://community.codemasters.com/forum/showpost.php?p=4807678&postcount=188), as the one you have provided has some errors in it as well asunoptimized items. The EU one I posted is being updated from time to time, whilst the US one can never be uptated again. (As that US account isn't being payed for anymore.)

Also, please add this:

02-16-2010, 11:30 PM
Here's a build I'm using for my Warforged character. Quite simple I'm afraid, but it works for me and I enjoy it (Lv 10 so far, deal 40-50 with each swing and 90+ on Crits, which happen often).


Erm... Priam Ironsoul's the character's name, so I guess the build is the Ironsoul Beast? Sure, sounds good.
