Welcome to Revision 3 of my Dwarven Intimitank. Going into Mod 9, I decided that a pair of Monk Levels would be a better route to go rather than extra Fighter or Paladin.
THis gives me a couple extra feats to play with, another +1 Intim from the Badger Stance, and Evasion. Since wisdom is poor, I'm not worried abou tmy Unarmored AC at all.
I orginally started my guy with a 12 Dex. Something I now regret, but doubt I will reroll him at this point. THis version I reduced the str and Con a bit in order to incorporate the Two Weapon Fighting line of feats.

What we end up here is a great combination of offensive and defensive talents. This guy will never be mistaken for a Frenzied Bezerker in the DPS Department, but with Divine Favor, Divine Might, and Hate increasing enhancments he should be able to draw aggro through DPS quite easily.
In situations that require a Skill check over DPS, he can transform into a S&B Intimitank. Super High Intim Skill, Incredible AC Potential, and Significant DR.

WHen I set out revising my Intimitank for Mod 9, I redesigned him whith these things in Mind.

DPS is critical. You dont have to be the highest DPS Build, but you need to do enough to be able to grab aggro efficiently.
Evasion is Important, but only if the Reflex save is High enough.
Top Notch Intim skill is still a must for me. When DPS Fails, you need to be able to grab aggro when things go wrong.
DR is important for those times when you get hit and Grazed.
and of course, Super High AC is still very important as well.

I think this build nails al those objectives. a DUal faced build of sorts.
When the objective is DPS and Evasion, Don the Mithral Breatplate and go to town.
When the Objective is Hold Aggro and Absorb Damage, Pop on the DT FUll Plate and enter your Defensive Stance.

Looks awesome, but how do you have five +6 items, AND daggertooth belt, AND chaosguards?

AND Minos, AND a +15 intimidate helm (if ring, then how are you going to have Chattering ring and Mod 9 raid loot ring)

Also, switching from breastplate to DT armor isn't something you can do on the fly... which limits the build slightly... Any way to get high AC AND evasion at the same time?

Which prestige enhancements are you planning to get? Is this going to be a kensai/Defender of Syberis or ?

Interesting build... it look vaguely familiar (http://forums.ddo.com/showthread.php?t=192261) :D

Anyway i like it.. one thing..
Have you considered unarmored ac instead of mithril breastplate? With a few extra pts into wisdom (maybe drop str/cha by 1 point) you could get a higher TWF ac with icy rainments and have faster armor switching when evasion is neccessary.


I dont see it mentioned but do you have a paladin tier 1 PrE? DOS, KOTC, HOTU?

Obviously all Calculations are shown and best case scenario. No one will ever get every item equipt at the same time.

Most quests are Either/or I find. Few quests really require one to swap back and forth between Evasion and Intimitank on the fly. In the event Evasion is Quickly needed, I can also Hotbar any Robe/Outfit I choose.

FOrgot to post the Enhancemnts, but Tier 2 Stalwart is the only PrE I have Planned at the moment. I'll add the one I worked on when I put the build together to the OP.

Perhaps I can link back to my Kilgan build where I had talked about this several months before you posted your build... Nah.. Its not realy a big deal I guess.. No One has a Patent on Build Ideas.

as for Icy/Wisdom...
That would be a lot more Sacrifice for essentally No gain. If you need to put more points into Wis and Dex to equal the Mithral Breastplate the only different is a speed in chacng from Heavy armor to RObes. I'd rather have the extra Str and CHR for this build over the Wisdom.

/agreed

You can ignore wisdom altogether, and still hit 11 (enough to cast divine favor) with your monk wis enhancement and the +2tome.

Also, quickdraw is currently broken for armor. For TWF you won't need it. I'd swap out that one for FoP instead.

But I didnt put any points into Wisdom.... :confused:

With a 32 Will save I dont feel the feat is justified in the least.

Quick Draw WOrks well for Weapons and also reduce Clicky Activation time (Like fighter Haste Boost)

I meant you can forego a wisdom item. It might be hard to find a slot for a wis item. If item slots are in short supply, you can free one up and still have your divine favor. FoP - true you might not need it either.

I had quickdraw on my S&B when I used stunning blow and then swapped to puncturers, Now he's twf and I don't see the need to switch out quickly anymore. I guess with TWF it's easier to find the right weapon combo without needing to worry about swapping out quickly. Never knew about reducing activation time. How much time does it save?.

Even without the WIs item on thats a 29.. And I didnt figure in the Dwarven spell save bonus either...

There ar esome threads around here that measured exactly I the difference I think.. All I can say is that its noticable.
