Hi guys

I am going to TR into a paladin for heal amp past life and I was thinking of what is your thoughts on a pally ranger monk split. I was thinking of 12/6/2 pally ranger monk. 6 ranger gives me the free stuff and 2 monk gives me feats and evasion.

I got +4 tomes to all stats a spare +5tome (mabar) and +5 con.

My question is what is your thoughts on this please.

Proposed stat

15 dex I think for improved precise shot

Will send proper build later.

This one hasn't been updated for u19 but the basic build and feat selections are good.

If this is just for a pally PL, I'd go rgr 6 / monk 6 / pal 8 - effectively a 6/6/6 split if you park at 18 to XP farm like every good TRer :) - i.e., a KotC monkcher. You'll want the usual feats - Zen Archery, 10K Stars, Master of Forms, GTWF, PBS, IPS, Imp Crit, Stunning Fist if unarmed - and the race actually doesn't matter all that much, since you can take most of the AA goodies from the rgr tree now.

I probably play it at epic levels to check it out for end game. Other question "there is no point of putting points on UMD, is there?

... Other question "there is no point of putting points on UMD, is there?

Build looks good. On this question, if you can fit it in alongside heal then I don't see any better choice. But no you can rely on pots/wands/cocoon/clw/cmw on this build.

I was going to make the same suggestion.

Basically, paladin has very little synergy with ranged combat in DDO, so a 6/6/8 build essentially lets you level as a monkcher and then get the paladin past life.

If I ever really decide to go after Completionist for my monkcher, my general plan is to run most of the classes like that: 6 monk/6 ranger/8 whatever (exclusions being bard and barbarian due to not being allowed with monk, maybe investing more heavily in the casters since they are pretty easy to level on).

This is simple, make a half-elf Paladin and get both bow strength feat and arcane archer potential maxed. There are also unusual feats you may want to take like Manyshot and improved precise shot, and maybe point blank shot. Rapid Shot is great to help out the DPS. Combine all of that and you should deal solid (for ranged anyway) DPS.
