View Full Version : Charmingly Generalist - Spell singer BurstNuke bard. Dragonmark Version

06-18-2011, 11:27 AM
Hi I'm enjoying my experiential build at the moment and figured it would be a fun build to share. Been mostly a small group player she's designed to try and make up for the main weakness of a bard solo. Boss killing! (And to be unique) She's a half elf and uses the Storm dragonmark's with maximize as the DC on Electricly loop and Call storm are cha based so work well with spell-singer.

Currently level 13 theres a few variations of which way this char can go from here/choice of your own enchantments.

She is fully capable healer for groups, able to UMD Raise dead etc and has plenty of the buffs groups love, but also has the ability to do damage when solo through mass suggestion/charm monster/dominate person or maximized shout/loop. Loop hitting for 70 atm and shout for around 95. Call lightening is hitting for 150-250 every few seconds saved for using on bosses.

She also can do the usual getto spellsinger bard THF with masters touch, haste etc on hold monster/daze monster. Swap h/elf barb dil for rog for 3d6 sneak attack for even more dps if wanna trade hp for damage.

There's a few ways this build can go from here. I'm hoping with greater shout can hit 200? on nukes at least that plus even more if took empower.

bard 16/wiz 1/fighter 3. +20% to lightening damage for the bursts and can pick up empower spell and some melee dps feats. Healer bard with some helpful dps.
20 bard end game would give you decent dc (-2 saves from cause fear(shaken) and -3 from daze monster to land hold monster/charm and hypnotism for -3 aoe on spells if took heighten) will help some from lack of spell focus but lack of spell penetration I can think could be a problem if want to cc. Of course can still use song cc and you are a fully capable healer with a little burst dps and cc built in.

The bard is the symbol of generalist for me and this guy can do a little of everything, among the best healer but with so many fun tricks.

Interesting build but why chaotic good ? True neutral will be far more interesting
especially since youre a spellsinger and can probably umd everything end game nps.

I would get empower yea. The biggest flaw I see here is that you dont have any song enh for damage or
attack or lingering.. Your a bard,people do expect some decent songs for you sooner or later..

Also a met a bard like you a few months ago wich i noticed had a really strange armor on wich obviously
woked very well for her. I think it was the black dragonscale robe wich adds another +2 to evocation spells
