56% doublestrike ..... with Nightmare, higher with First blood. Add in a skirmisher's Bracer and it's over 60%
(for 10 seconds out of every 20 ... Block and cut style)

1500 HP's, 130PRR, >100AC (in legendary dreadnaught, obviously MOAR in sentinal)

Saves in the 70's with evasion and no fail reflexes

Rogue skills (max search, DD and Balance with some points in OL and UMD)

High Intim with little effort (or no effort as in my case)

UMD in the 60's (tensor's anyone?) no gear swapping to UMD anything ... oh Deadly weapons scrolls ... /sigh

CHA to hit and dmg only when unboosted. STR in the 70's with surge/divine might/tensors/yugopot.

UPDATE: Successfully tanked EE What Goes Up (no healer) while running away from the occasional group chain whippers. No deaths ... well not counting the falling through the bridge .... ah that brought back some memories.

Had the UMD and survivability to rez my grp several times ....

LRed out of the 1st level of fighter to rogue for the skill point boost and the ability to keep skills maxed (even cross class) Took rogue at 1st and 13th levels.

This looks interesting. How do you self-heal, with the endless lay on hands?

Okay, I realize as PDK you have to start ftr; but any particular reason you didn't backload the rog lvls so you could dump all your skill pts into UMD? Did you consider adding Emp Heal for Rejuv Cocoon?

7 LoH heal for about 700 each ... if they run out then scroll up to about 1200HP's. They recharge at a rate of 1 every minute and 45 or so. Haven't run out often enough to warrant a change.



I LR'd out of the 1st level fighter and went rogue at 1 and 13 to maximize the skill points. Failed to mention that earlier ..... will edit OP to reflect.


Used cocoon for a while on this toon but the heal vs cooldown wasnt effective enough the way a dmg burst can come on EE content. LoH is far more effective and doesnt require a red slot or feat to utilize in addition to the twist (not to mention the mana)
