Hello! So lately I've been doing alot of custom building, and I need some advice. The idea behind this build is a twf khopesh wielding fighter, who can self buff/heal through bard spells/wands and also has rage and sprint boosts for getting around. So far, what I have come up with, is this:

Would this build be viable for soloing through the game? I really prefer to play on elite, and so far (i'm level 2 lol) I've had no problem. Is there anything else I should consider? I really need some guidance on the enhancements, I just kind of guessed. The beginning stats I feel are spread pretty thin, but I need 15dex for TWF and 17 for GTWF. Do the forums have any input for me? Thanks!!

The bard levels wont provide you with enough self healing, youll be relying on scrolls.

Given that:
Id make it a 12fighter/5barb/3rogue

Youll gain evasion, sneak attack, have more skill points to put towards umd, and may be able to squeeze in trappng or lock picking skills.

The downside is youll be completely relying on scrolling for buffs and healing, it is quite feasible though.

Wisdom is a dump stat btw, put those points into cha for umd, or int for skills.

oversize twf and toughness are pretty poor feats, id swap them for cleave and great cleave.

Youll also find that 2 handed weapons with no feats are more dps than 2wf until around the time you get itwf. Id pick up cleave and great cleave earlier, using a 2handed weapon & put off 2wf feats till 6+

If you seriously want to be able to "self buff/heal through bard spells," you're going to want a lot more bard lvls to gain access to the better bard spells like Haste, Displacement, CCW, etc.

I haven't updated it yet for the new Enhancements, but have a look at my Kublai Khan thread (https://www.ddo.com/forums/showthread.php/312489-Kublai-Khan-(TWF-bard-16-ftr-2-barb-2)) for one example of a bard 16 / ftr 2 / barb 2. The main thing I would change is drop WF:Slash, Toughness, and Stunning Blow for the Cleave / GC / Overwhelming Crit chain.

Also have a look at my Bardcher thread; my view is a rgr splash adds more than barb to a TWF toon these days, thanks in part to +10% offhand from Tempest being moved from lvl 6 to lvl 3.
