You rarely see a pure FVS these days. Evokers are not viable for endgame content. People have been experimenting with low-medium wis builds, but I never saw someone go all the length. Wis dumpstat? Pure Cha fvs? Yes, it is possible.

I give you the Violence Favored (Soul) build.

Starting stats:

08 str
12 dex
16 con
14 int
08 wis
18 cha

All lvlups in cha.

feats:

lvl 1: force of personality, maximize
lvl 3: completionist
lvl 6: mental toughness
lvl 9: empower
lvl 12: improved mental toughness
lvl 15: quicken
lvl 18: past live sorcerer
lvl 21: epic mental toughness
lvl 24: empower heal
lvl 26: spellpower light
lvl 27: ruin
lvl 28: spellpower fire


Skills:
max out heal, spellcraft, balance, umd.
rest goes into diplomacy (for an endvalue of 22 at lvl 20)

Please note, that I was missing 8 Spellpower from the third stack of the Meridian Buff.
Please also note the light damage in the combat log. This is non-crit damage from my archon. I summoned him before I had reached maximum Spellpower.

Past Lives:

I am pretty much heroic triple-completionist (missing some worthless fighter and monk lives), 3 lives PDK, Shadar-Kai and Morninglord. Also triple epic-completionist.

Gear is as follows:

conc opps goggles (hp/sp/sp)
blue dragon helmet (insightful cha, deathblock, insightful con)
epic noxious embers (fear immunity)
epic litany (vitality +20, good luck +2)
greensteel cloak (blindness immunity, hp, hp)
epic belt of thoughtful rememberance
lantern ring (+250 sp, +8 strength)
epic fanged gloves (con +8, heal +13)
surefooted boots (false life +40)
ring of shadows (globe of imperial blood)

thunderforged longsword (impulse, spell pen, eternal scorching light, insightful dex, devotion 138)
libram of silver magic (meridian fragment)


Cloak is a very nice slot to swap out, if you need sth like spell absorb, elemental absorb or whatever.

@Ambitious,

Thanks for posting your build here. I need a FVS past life and I'm thinking along the lines of what you have here. Have you updated this build to post U32?

I could try to figure it out myself but I'll humbly admit lesser caster experience.

Thanks!

If all you are doing is getting to 30 then Im sure you will be fine. If you plan to do much at 30 then you are going to need a LOT of gear. My average gear FVS is basically useless in EE / LE content.

This was a great build back in the day, killed by changes to pali saves boost

Tis true ... saves though don't matter as much as they used to ... You can have high saves or ...

lots of MRR, resists, absorption, FOM, and DW ... you can dump your saves then ... if you get stoned or something, just click your harper pin and then put your spell absorbtion item on until that encounter is done or find an anti-stoning item.

Saves in today's game are overrated.

I went pure Sun Elf (used the lesser heart) FvS. Pun intended: I had a blast. Knocked out a couple ETRs and can't wait to come back to it. Never felt like a chore to run it. For my first caster life, it was tons-o-fun.

Thanks for posting your build!

There is already a Violence FvS in the end game (on Ghallanda started the day FvS was released) and this is not his build ;)

Looks interesting though, great job thinking outside the box.
