View Full Version : Trying to build a F2P Repeater Rogue

So I am a relatively new player, who doesn't really devote that much time towards trying to figure out how to make my character 1% more effective. I've done a little studying, trying to figure out the outline of what kind of character I want to build. I am currently going F2P, so I only have access to the basic characters and classes.

Right now I'm looking at a Human Rogue, armed with a repeater, highly proficient at crafting stuff like bombs, grenades, etc. Not really looking at an emphasis on stealth, more focused on the crits. The "purpose" of this build would be to run into a place, blow stuff up, shoot a bunch of baddies, have fun, then leave.

I'm not looking for a top tier pvp character. I'm looking for a fun character to have... well... fun with. And I think that this guy would fulfill that for me.

Have a look here - read all the way down, not just the first post, as there more ideas as you go.
Note that currently the "Conjure Bolts" scrolls are broken, so you need to pack in your bolts the old-fashioned way.

The basics of a ranged-only Mechanic haven't changed too much.

Stats: needs to hit DEX 21 for Combat Archery & Imp Sneak Atk epic feats; enough CON not to die; the rest into INT.
Feats: Rapid Reload, Point Blank Shot, Precision, Precise Shot, Imp Crit:Ranged, Imp Prec Shot, Rapid Shot, Combat Archery, Imp Sneak Atk

Here's a tome-free Mechanic build as one example:

If you have a DEX tome, you would shift lvl-up pts from DEX to INT. Lvl 18 feat is up to you.

I've been underwhelmed by Mechanic traps; seems like they do too little dmg to be worth the effort. But since that's what you asked for, I maxed them out. If you choose to use great xbows, max out Lacerating Shots; though I would switch to repeaters as soon as you hit lvl 6 and acquire Targeting Sights.
