Isn't this a fighter with bard levels for buff and healing? Why not take 2 levels of FVS to get more PRR and Smite Weakness?

because bard level 3 spells like cure serious wound and displacement.

It looks solid. The biggest risk with this split is the lack of defenses but it looks like you've managed that quite well. Saves are good, plenty of self healing options (between spells, scrolls, and cocoon), solid PRR and dodge. And melee will be top notch.

Nice write up btw. ;)

Pulverizer 2

Does not stack with Swashbuckling because both are competence bonuses IIRC.

Yep.
Handaxe wins then (headmans chop), and light picks sound good ,but i dont know the maths

I like this take, but I'm almost certain it can be improved on:

- Almost no healing amp is tough for a cocoon-based healer. You say 'good' selfhealing but I consider it severly lacking.
- I don't like no improved deception
- I certainly dislike not having ghostly on a melee.

It feels like you are trying to do too much and the gear and AP show this.

Builds are always awesome when you assume a perfect world. That is a lot of yugo pots and lasting elixirs...
