View Full Version : THF Pally(DPS Focus)

DPS Paladin has always been my favorite class to roll, but after getting access to half-orc and WF via VIP membership, i'm wondering which one would be a better race to roll

Half orc gets +2 str, +2 strength enhancements, and the same THF enhancements
WF gets immunities, more constitution, more ranks of toughness, Bladesworn Transformation

If i'm looking at max DPS, when i say max DPS I'm trying to factor in survivability since you aren't really doing damage if ur dead :p

I think a max DPS build for THF would look like this:http://forums.ddo.com/showthread.php?t=205440

If i was to roll half-orc and replace the WF specific enhancements with the Hal orc variants would it be a better build after factoring in the str enhancements since i'm not taking toughness enhancements anyway?

OK, my view on this. The CHA cost on HOrc is too costly. Assuming you take ur CHA to a min of 13 (any lower and ur going to lose too much in the way of the enhancement line)
If your a 28pt build ur looking at 20str, 12 con, 13 cha. 32pt build u get ur con to 15 OR CHA to 15.
This is only worth while in my mind if you have a +4 Cha Tome lying around...

In terms of DPS though, and I stand to be corrected on this, but twf seems to be the way to go.
KotC gives dam per landed hit, meaning with twf your getting up to 24*5 =120 dam using twf over thf (24*3=72) against evil outsiders assuming you've taken the imp twf and greater twf feats. Throwing in kopeshes and Imp Crits I doubt that the thf version will out DPS it.
