Hi there, so this is my other epic iconic that I would like to TR into another iconic fighter and maybe do 1-2 eTR's before the next TR. I have done 2 handraps monk lives (this was before the enhancement revamp), I did a falchion focused barbarian and she's currently a cetus copy.. sort of.

So, after doing two heroic lives and two epic past lives as a thf, I would like to do one fighter life as handwraps focused, since it's been a while since I've played one. I've been working on this build with the help of a friend, and it's close to finished. If anyone wants to offer improvement suggestions I'm all ears.

With U23 you won't need Cleave and Great Cleave for Overwhelming Critical, just something to keep in mind in case you want to pick up two other feats...maybe precision for epic Orchard and other 100% fort mobs.

Just curious, what do you gain from 8 monk over just 6 monk levels?

An extra 0.5[d6] unarmed and slightly more slow fall.

Any way you can fit in Elegant Crane? Although you will not be having any ki issues since you will cycle thru cleaves and whirlwind (should make an awesome blitzer!)
What wraps are you planning to use in epics? The grave wraps will knock u level since u r lawful good (srry on iphone)

Also unbalancing strike uses the monk level for its DC so you might be better off with one of the other 2--maybe eagle claw

I just picked up ee Ivy wraps, so they'll be my main wraps. I do have grave wrappings also, they used to be my fav last time I did a handwraps build.

Any interest in epic Calomel wraps? I made them recently and find them great all-purpose, especially since Corrosive salt and Crushing wave work on bosses. With the challenge bonus this weekend, might be worth it. (I made mine right before bonus was announced...)

I'd rather do a 12/6/2 split, splashing pally, FvS/cleric, rog, or possibly rgr or druid.

I myself have been wondering what a good/competitive handwraps fighter build would be (there used to be quite a few a while back but don't see them much anymore). Would be interested to see some discussion on pros/cons (vs a regular TWF build) as well as what splash makes the most sense.

Unarmed builds fell out of favor when U19 rolled out and monk / kensei became all the rage. Why settle for wraps when you could play a Cetus swinging an eSOS? :) Also, some of the nicer ED abilities don't apply to unarmed combat (e.g., Lay Waste & Momentum Swing). For unarmed builds I prefer something more monk-focused; but ftr 12 / monk 6 / <splash> 2 still works fine if you need a ftr PL or whatever.
