Thoughts? Adamantine body gives 2DR, feats give another 5DR, enhancements total 3DR, +5 adamantine tower shield gives another 1, use an axe/hammer/spearblock item on switch for another (5), Golden Greaves gives DR3/, for a rough total of around 19 DR. Can probably get higher with the right items. Toss in a Chattering ring and Caosgardes (not that hard to get) and you're looking at a pretty decent AC as well right?

Well, this is just a rough, quick, first run-thru. Let me know what ya think!

The manin thing ya need to know is the WF dr doesn't stack with other sources so you would be at 8/adamantine for WF 1/- for The Shield and 5/blunt, slashing for spearblock

ok.. so Golden Greaves are out.. so im down 3. But Id still have 2 from AB, 5 from Feats, 3 from enhancements, 1 from Tower shield, and 5 from spearblock, totalling 16 (cept against pierce,where itd be 11).

So.. viable?

You'll want to get a docent of defiance for random 20 sec bursts of 20 DR/-.

If your goal is to hold agro, do decent damage, and take a beating, go with arcane psycho build. Self buffed with stoneskin and actively blocking with a +5 tower shield (for DR/- in the 20s) while standing in the middle of your firewall makes a fairly potent combo.

Where does one go looking for this Docent of Defiance? I checked the loot list in the game guides section and didn't see it there (may have just missed it...)

[edit - never mind, found it second time through the list. Cursed Crypt. Going to have to take my static group there sometime & go looking for one...]

And no two sources of DR EVER stack... except shield blocking DR, and thats ONLY when actively blocking. Your adamantium shield's DR 1/- will only help you when being attacked by an adamantium weapon, and it will block one point only. The rest of the time you will be protected only by your 10/adamantine from your body/feats/enhancements (which count as a single source due to the wording of the feats and enhancements which specifically say they improve your existing WF dr by x amount).

And if you are looking to get max blocking DR, you have to be a dwarf. Their shield enhancements stack with the shield feats. My bottom character in my sig is an experiment in DR and Intimidate, but I have a feeling that he'll end up as an evasion fighter with rage.
