I was trolling through some of the old posts and read that halflings and elf/drow were able to achieve a 42 DEX score. I was wondering how that was possible. I built what I thought was a max dex TWF ranger tempest build, and at end game she will have 36 DEX. Where is the other 6 DEX coming from? I started out with 20, 4 from levels, 6 from item(I had also read that a new raid item gives a +9 to DEX but I don't believe it) 2 from Elven DEX 3 from Rangers DEX, and 1 from a Tome/Cake if Wishing. That puts me at 36. IF i were to run the reaver raid and get LUCKY enough to pull a +3 DEX Tome, I could use it to bump it up to 38, but that's the higest I can see it going. So, is that it for max dex, or can the 42 be attained? I am looking into this from an AC and to hit standpoint. Thanks, Paul M

18 from start + 2 racial +2 racial enhancement +3 ranger enhancement +9 shroud weapon +1 litany of the dead +4 levels + 3 insite potion from house D +3 tome = 45 dex short term, 42 normally

From an AC stand point one weapon would be +9 dex (I recomend triple fire for the damage from inferno activating) and the other would have +4 insite bonus to AC at tier 3.

Edit: Notice I forgot to add the tome in my math, D'oh

Rogue 3
elf 2

Shroud item 3
Litany 1

What type of bonus is Litany.

Well 3 of the 4 magic dex come from crafting. You get a tier1 upgrade of stat +6 on your weapon. Tier 2 and 3 add +2 and +1 and are exceptional bounses meaning they stack with the origional +6 giving you a +9 stat item. Are you including the racial and class enhancements?

Part of me hopes some sort of sacred dex bonus shows up on something seeing as str trumps all other stats in its ability to be buffed. I think the current max is 56.
