Ok, What do you guys think about this?

Credit to Guild Leader of Shadowtouched on Ghallanda on this post, this is just my version with SWF/Shield version of his build. (Tom116)

His build can be found here: https://www.ddo.com/forums/showthread.php/444278-Eldritch-Knight?highlight=eldritch and it's pretty darn awesome so check it out.

Please let me know if you see any glaring issues, concerns, or things that can be done better.

I'm super concerned about this from the Wiki for Single Weapon Fighting:


Common misconception is that you can wear a shield and still benefit from this feat. You cannot wear a shield and benefit from the single weapon fighting feats unless the third tier Swashbuckler enhancement Skirmisher is taken and the character is single weapon fighting in the Swashbuckling Stance. Then a buckler can be used in the offhand.

SWF- gain a speed and stat boos if you have nothing, orb, or runearm in your offhand. So as a casting melee, you can use an orb without being a bard.

Definitely a cool idea, I am worried about that bit about no shields in SWF though. I havn't personally played with SWF so I don't know for sure, but from what it says I'd say you need to put some bard in there to get it S&B, and even then only bucklers. I'd check lamania to see before rolling it out, I'd definitely like to know if it works as is. Also at level 1 you said you're taking THF, it looks like you meant to put SWF since you take Imp SWF a few levels later without taking SWF hehe :)

Wielding an orb is another option, though this looks like you're trying to be more tanky with shield mastery so orbs may not be the best option for that.

Thank you for giving me credit for the build, I appreciate that :)

*edit
I just thought of something else actually. When U23 comes around in september, there will be a big change to PRR, paladins are getting a big overhaul, and they're introducing MRR. Feels like they might bring in the S&B line there if we're lucky :)
