View Full Version : Need EE Bladforged Sorcerer...Keep the 1 pally

04-04-2015, 08:18 AM
Hello all builders! I am going for 3 Bladforged/Sorcerer Lives...

So need to go from level 14 to 28 in a reliably speedy manner. No nonsense build.

Keep the first level of Pally.

18 Levels of Sorcerer Air savant for immune to knockdown and wings???

I looked all over the forums... but no builds that keep the pally level 1 bladeforged..........So i am a little confused what feat at level 1...

I see some builds that go mental toughness, IMT, and greater MT...

Some say you dont need Maximize/empower...........

I want the Quicken Reconstruct......

Just too many different builds that confuse me everytime i look at them.

Keep it simple...I am not the sharpest tool in the shed

Help please

Yes he has an updated version who doesn't do Paladin now...but his original version is still easy to lvl if you have full access to Shiradi.

This worked good for me in EE content but not sure if it is fast enough for you.

3 paladin 17 sorc is your best bet. Invest mostly into Paladin enhancements and Eldritch Knight. Have enough Strength for THF line, with every other level up and enhancement for Charisma to use with Divine Might. Easy enough. Take Admantine armor early and then spend the APs to make sure it does not affect you.

The big question, why the FVS levels? For 15 PRR, elemental damage...a head start on divine scrolls with UMD? Explain it here without your fanclub knocking you. Sometimes its better to listen before jumping the gun to say "this will not work well." I will say with enough spellcraft/spellpower with maximize and empower it's still okay to cast offensively as long as you have a good grip on your weapon and can take the heat of "conventional" combat. So I am not going to knock you for that, a sorcerer can play like a warlock. But do you feel the -6 level to your primary class is worth the hit as a caster personally?

I would totally ditch heighten and expect my DCs not to come to par with the enemy saves and build with that in mind myself. But you know how it plays for real and not just on paper. Of course with an Arcane Epic Destiny...that totally changes the outlook if it grants you extra Sorc levels and heighten would still be feasible...if those extra levels count towards caster level.

That's what people miss, a lot of builds are a challenge until they shine at end game.

(This contributes to a lot of soloing as well, people often try to claim off destinies and don't want to twink a pug. So don't think everyone is stuck up. They don't want to throw your quest on EE. Just want to give the heads up to new players. More so now that champ spawns have been introduced)

My fan club sometimes takes awhile but they usually come around. blackheartx copied the concept (https://www.ddo.com/forums/showthread.php/456965-Orthosorc-maybe-how-we-all-should-build-draconic-sorcs)

Today I learned that every sorc build with heavy armour is a copy of Tilomere's Prismatic Spray specced build.

Indeed ;)

Opener, your best bet is to do a shiradi sorc, 14 sorc 4 soul 2 palie or similiar, can go stance with 13 sorc 4 soul 3 palie.
Whatever with lotsa prr/mrr fsoul levels for force spp and sorc for wings/sonic from ais savant and fire savant cores.
Just spam chain misslies mm scorchings etc while being in shiradi.
Doesnt work as good in enecro but overall a good build.

To build dc casting sorc 18sorc/2palie is your best bet but relies on plifes, 18 bf has the issue to have a hard time as dc caster during etring, its a strong lv 28 build but not as good as drow/human til 28.
What makes a good sorc player nowadays, is how reliably you use shiradi procs OR how reliably and efficient you do your blueburst combo

So, my strong suggestion is shiradi sorc or dc 18/2.
IF you want to try a full efficiency sorc try the thing i did, monk fsoul 1/1 splash, but that requires a heart and is pretty much a final sorc build for maximum dps based on dc casting and double debuff while keeping 23% dodge and a considerable ammount of mitigation. Is pretty much the best dc casting sorc build currently in ddo
