Hey guys I know this is a pretty simple build but I just wanted to make sure I didn't miss anything glaringly obvious that I may have missed before we play (aside from the fact that it uses maces...was my friends request)

Looks good, I'm assuming DoS?

I think that if you take Fighter at level 1 you will get an extra feat, but it will push the PrE back to level 7.

I'd rather get the PrE ASAP besides I still get the extra feat when I take fighter at 7 & 8

Cool. Only other thing (which can be handled easy with a tome) is Charisma needs to be base 18 if you plan on DM III or 20 for DM IV.

+2 tome is no biggie for DM3...+4 tome is unlikely but honestly the exta build points aren't worth cranking Cha to 18

Thanks Fedora :D

. . . mace & shield? Is that a joke? :eek: Warhammers are better, especially if your friend aims for Mornh; but slashing weapons make most sense.

define extra feat? You don't get any 'extra' feat at all. You get a bonus fighter feat whenever you take a lv1 fighter class at any level.

Sorry I should have specified it's 1-handed bludgeoning weapon & shield and yes I know slashing is better which is when I specified the only reason it's IC:bludgeon is because of my friends request.

Just a note about the Epic Bulwark of Defense Feat - The AC bonus only applies if you are in Combat Expertise or Defensive Fighting Stance. The DoS/SD stances of the PRE do not activate this. This was not to discourage you from using the Feat I just wanted to make sure it was understood that the Feat was only a benefit while in one of those two stances, so how much time will you be in CE vs PA should be considered.
