So my idea is making a treasure hunting character. Something to do with the dragonmark of finding ( I believe thats what its called) So I can locate object and the sorts. Not sure on the class, pretty sure I'm going to be going human so I can get the extra feat and dragonmark. Any ideas are welcome, remember that this is not for end game bull. Just doing dungeons and getting extra treasure.

Extra treasure and the like means you'll want rogue-skills (and it's thematically sound). The problem is that rogues don't get a huge number of feats if you want decent DPS. Could probably make it work though.

for me it sounds some combination between rogue and fighter as treasure hunters are known to face dangers and often need to fight.

So I would guess, first level rogue for the skills boost, second and third level fighter and fourth level rogue to complete the vet status beginning?

You will want a FTR rogue combo I am thinking.

You will need search, spot disable and open lock as your skills to invest in. UMD if you can squeeze it in.

first level needs to be rogue to get max skill points.

FTR will give you the feats you need pick human over horc for the extra one.

If it's not endgame but a flavor / farmer build then that is your best bet IMHO.

yep 2 levels of rogue and 18 ftr if you want the figting aspect maxed.

or the other swing 16 rogue / 4 Ftr would max out the rogue side and gain the extra feats you would need.

Human again though.

Whipped up a quick sample build. didn't spend too much time on it but it should be a good start.

might wanna dumb down the rogue a little and take some wizzy levels as well as there are some spells that a treasure hunter would certainly find useful.

Oh and if it's not immediately apparent he would be a sword n board finesse guy using a rapier and probably LG shield (for the Damage reduction).

Alternately you could take some Cleric levels also. Gives self heal (not great but there) and some of the same buffs, personally I think I would take the wizard though.

Also in that case go War Forged and drop the diehard feat (you get it free anyway). Then you can self heal and still get the wizard boost.

I went with a 16 Bard/2 Righter/2 Rogue for my Treasure Hunter. With an unimpressive 38 Charisma, he still gets the occasional failure when influencing chests.

It's nice to be able to switch prestiges just by resetting enhancements, too :D

Bard is an interesting choice.

Going that route you won't be able to keep as many skills maxed out but you are gonna get some nice synergy with Bardsongs and of course the castings.

This would be another good way to go, would be harder to solo with, but certainly not impossible, I think but still not a bad selection by any means.

I would probably take the Rogue and FTR levels first, say 2 and 2 and then 16 straight bard levels.

From my signature's "Freeloading Golddigger"...

Skills

Balance 37 = 15 (ranks) + 3 (dex) + 15 (item) + 4 (GH)
Concentration 52 = 23 (ranks) + 6 (con) + 4 (spellsinger) + 15 (item) + 4 (GH)
Disable Device d20 + 47 = 17 (ranks) + 4 (int) + 15 (item) + 4 (GH) + 7 (tools)
Haggle 36 = 5 (ranks) + 12 (cha) + 15 (item) + 4 (GH)
Jump 41 = 17 (ranks) + 5 (str) + 4 (GH) = 26 + 15 (item)
Open Lock d20 + 33 = 4 (ranks) + 3 (dex) + 15 (item) + 4 (GH) + 7 (tools)
Perform 54 = 23 (ranks) + 12 (cha) + 15 (item) + 4 (GH)
Search 47 = 22 (ranks) + 4 (int) + 2 (dragonmark) + 15 (item) + 4 (GH)
Spot 26 = 4 (ranks) + 3 (wis) + 15 (item) + 4 (GH)
Use Magic Device 43 = 23 (ranks) + 12 (cha) + 4 (spellsinger) + 4 (GH)


However, I should point out that the build is designed to stand around and pike after buffing and singing songs, with the occasional rescue when things go pear shaped. I can't speak to how effective it is if you actually played the build :D

I really hope you were joking about someone actually making this.

A Rogue...with a shield...and a dex build.....

So my idea is making a treasure hunting character. Something to do with the dragonmark of finding ( I believe thats what its called) So I can locate object and the sorts. Not sure on the class, pretty sure I'm going to be going human so I can get the extra feat and dragonmark. Any ideas are welcome, remember that this is not for end game bull. Just doing dungeons and getting extra treasure.


Maybe you know this already. Maybe you don't. Just in case you don't...

The Mark of Finding sounds cool. In reality it's not so much. It won't allow you to locate and find additional treasure as you go along through Dungeons. Instead it's use is to Buff chests in an attempt to boost the loot scale inside these chests. There quite a bit of debate as to if it actually accomplishes anything. Because of the debate (and usual impatience of group members) you'll find yourself not being allowed the time to Bless the chests.

Nope serious, the idea was survivable treasure hunter. Dex and finesse to compensate on the hit side for lack of str. When he can get into combat with some sneaks he should do OK with them for sure.

Shield and it's bonuses for the DR, I honestly see this build more as a pike / turtle build than the typical rogue DPS build.

Now this isn't something build for end game that is FOR SURE. And soloing beyond 10 is probably gonna take some work but he should be able to pike along hand all the locks and traps and boost the loot in the chests quite well.

Having said that I personally would probably look @ a Human Bard with either artificer or Rogue splash because I really like to solo and that would be a far stronger solo option. And it would give a more active playstyle which is vastly more appealing to me.

Warning: This will come off as very blunt (my German side) and no nonsense (my Irish side) but it's not meant to be rude. Just honest.

It's a terrible build that fails on multiple levels of application. It won't do anything well (except pike and be fairly useless). It definitely will not solo at all (and no the harbor and korthos quests don't count).

The build would be a nightmare to play. You'd spend all day trying to kill a mob solo.

I'm sorry but this is an example of where an idea and practical application fail to meld and result in failure.

Well that was the idea.

Basically a piking chest buffer. with the ability to trap and lock for the party.

I went with the shield simply to not make him a mana drain on the healers.


As I said if I was looking for solo it would be a Bard/Rogue build with no more than 4 but probably 2 levels of fighter. Likely a 16/2/2 split would work out. In fact it's a better build for "flavour" as well.

Now with the Arti on board it might be an arti/ftr build instead but I haven't paid for it so ... =)

By no means was I recommending that build for solo questing, it would need a group who is OK with the guy piking away. Heck if the more I think about it it might be better off tossing away finesse and tossing a returning weapon. =)

The OP wasn't looking for a functional build but one that would simply farm treasure.... to me that means piking.

If it's solo farming then Go human Bard/Rogue/Ftr. 2 levels of rogue for evasion, 2 levels of ftr for the feats, human for the extra feat.
