I Hereby present you the one and only the single the claim to the tittle the undisputed defender of the tittle the titering of solutions:

THE VANGUARD TACTICAL ROCKER

So I'm posting this to get some feedback. Tr'ed today onto it. What do you forumites gives?
I know that SWF line and enhancement line on vanguard do not add up for combat style to melee attack speed.
I know I could get 2 rogue levels for evasion, but will lose displacement/Haste/Cure Serious Wounds and Improved inspire Courage on Bard
What else?

Could get +3 Tactical DC's with 3 fighter PL's
Could get a bit more Hamp with 1 more paly PL

Enhancements are extremly tight, could change it for a str Swashbuckler t5

I can change it for a 10 fighter\8 Bard\2 Rogue Dropping the last fighter feat, gaining evasion.

What about the feats any suggestion?

The plan is to get it to 28 ETR (once or twice) and TR, do a quick SWF paladin life to 21 TR. And back to another fighter PL(probaly revolving on Tower shields or SWF with bards lvls. And to tinker the build as best as I can (from levels to 4-28) and have fun along the way.

Currently lvl 7. With a 10% fire absorption buckler (Lots of fire going around on low lvl quests, Very impressive survival on Elite solo runs) High kill count on pug parties with charged gauntlets and heartseeker finesse weapon critically hitting all the time (on stance), stunning mobs (stunning blow and enhancement stunning shield) without any gear directed towards it (for now)

FLABBERGASTED I'D SAY! THE DIARY OF FLABBERGASTING AROUND!

Doing all the quests I have right to. No exception, on level.

Level 1. Bard

Running around korthos village seemed eons ago since the last time, getting familiar with the quests. Soloing my way up to harbor with a nifty hireling Barbarian using way too powerful greatswords for a level 1 hireling.

Would love a Quiver of Alacrity for that 30% fast movement. Starter GreatAxe and no proficiency! Master touch spell (Very important)! Using Expeditious Retreat spell, quickly doing quests with that 18 strength backing me up cannith crystal failed a couple times because mobs broke the crystal, Why? Oh dios mio!

Level 2. Bard

Guardian's Dagger my new favorite! +2 Greatsword with keen and a red augment for a +1 elemental damage
Still no proficiency. Bad bad choice makes very angry player!

Level 3-4. Fighter

Easy going, good pug party members all smooth cleared all level 2 quests. Nothing remarkable happening here.

Level 5-6. Bard

Swashbuckling stance: Blur, 10% dodge, a 10% fire absorption buckler. (In need of a good\ghostbane bludgeoning light weapon againts undeads min lvl 4) Using might of the Abishai set.
At this point quests got a little bit hard but the build started to kick in and I developed some familiarity with it, stunning, tripping, weapon swapping for the occasion! Living the life, everything got more exciting and dangerous.

Level 7. Fighter

At this point every enhancement point spent adds a little bit more to the build, so every blue bubble is making me enjoy the build. Anxiously waiting to get to level 8 and use Shield Charge to start battles and see how things will work out.

You missed the fighter tactics feats that stack with each other. They dont require being taken as fighter bonus feats, just require the appropriate fighter levels.

4 fighter 2 tactics dc
8 fighter 4 tactics dc
12 fighter 6 tactics dc

Uhh, that would be because you necro'd a build which predates the new tactics feats...

I noticed that not long after I posted and couldnt be bother to change it. I read the date as 9th on Jan as in Uk we use dd/mm/yy, so though 11 was a 1 and didnt bother looking at the year.

Just show how little people post in the fighter forum as it was still near the top of the thread.
