I new to multiclassing, but have really been enjoying it. I'm looking to get a bard pl and ran across this idea.
Human 15 bard/4 fighter/1 clr and am wondering about its capacity for EE content on my eSOS toon.

I'm thinking (with what I have):
Str 18 (+5 tome) + level ups
Dex 10 (+4 tome)
Con 16 (+5 tome)
Int 8 (+4 tome)
Wis 10 (+4 tome)
Chr 14 (+4 tome)

Feats:
Quicken
Empower healing
Toughness
PA
PC
Cleave
GreateCleave
IC:Slash
Epic toughness
OC
(room for more)

Skills:
max balance, perform, heal, umd
secondary diplo, spot

The THF chain is generally unnecessary. In many ways an 18/1/1 works just fine, plus it gets you OID which is handy crowd control.

If you end up with a spare feat, Extend early is very handy.

I run a 16/3/1 bard/rogue/fighter. and it rocks EE content. It can do traps and can CC EE content. DPS is pretty fricken sweet too, an I don't have an eSOS.

I was wondering if OID would be that useful to me since I'm short on spell pen gear.

I already have an extensive heavy armor collection, flawless black, white and red, plus my embrace of the spider queen so evasion is of little use to me. Had it not already been crafted, this is the route I would have taken.

I'm still undecided if I'm going to go all the way to 28 and a possible epic tr, or flip into iconic monk for my last completionist class. Either way, I'd like a jump on the comms for the iconic tr...

Quite a few things have zero SR.

I'd be interested in more details on that build. Gear, feats, stats, things like that.

I am in no way a build master. And there really isn't anything special in regard to gear or build. I basically make improvements as I go until I get the desired results.

41 +5 (tome)
28 +4
32 +4
24 +3
12 +3
29 +3

Epic feats: overwhelming crit, Lasting inspiration, perfect THF

Perform is currently 74 in Fury of the wild. This can be improved based on destiny or twists.

I will swap destinies and twists depending on content I am running. In a support/healing role, I will go in the Fatesinger destiny. When Im going full DPS mode, I will go legendary dreadnought and splash Sense Weakeness.

Flawless Blue Dragon armor and helm
EAGA or Cleaver (still need planar focus of prowess)

Still a work in progress, as all of my toons are.

I made it to level 20 and just tr'ed. I did notice that I forgot Power critical, so would consider dropping the whole THF chain for PC and, um, ideas?

Side note, Empower heal is necessary to get your hp up quickly and I had good HA.

thanks for sharing your build,

one question, what is the leveling order of the classes?

This is what i finally worked out in the character planner. Like I said, I never went over 20, so don't know the feasibility of this build for ee content. I also modified my skill priority from spot to spellcraft, but am unsure of the usefulness of the latter.
