Morning all,
I have been gone for a little while, sort of, and came back to find toons that I have no clue of how to play and what to do. <insert sad violin music> Anyway, I have a lvl 17 FvS that I liked enough to ramp him up to 17 back in 2009. I was curious if the melee version still held up it's end or should I just give up and start over.
Here's the build I used back in the day. I was happy that I found it still out there.

First, welcome back. Second I am sure that your build (based on Impaqt one) will perform well still now, especially at the specific level that you are (lvl 17). You have got Wings, have BB plus Destruction and Slay Living. Next level you'll get Implosion too, so the next 3 levels will go fast and smooth.

There is a thing I do not understand from your title, you said there "Meele Evoker" but that build is a pure caster one. I think a pure caster is nowdays the best way to build a fvS, focusing in good DC and spamming high damage spell (BB, DV, ruin, gruin, sunbolt).

Here a link to a build I am running atm and that I am enjoying a lot lately (https://www.ddo.com/forums/showthread.php/472153-Deep-Gnome-Evoker-FvS)

Welcome back, OP.

I recently took a stab at updating the Evoker-style FvS build here (https://www.ddo.com/forums/showthread.php/473698-Build-Request-Favored-Soul-for-New-Players?p=5805504&viewfull=1#post5805504).

Well, I was running with long swards(don't tell my mom), if I remember correctly. Thought I was meleeing more than a little. Might just be that I need some Ginkgo. Advancing years and such aside, didn't see the link. ;) I would like to see it.

unbongwah, I looked over that build and think I get the jest of it. I'll just keep that one in mind for the next toon. :)

Thanks for the replies, all.

Updated the reply with the actual link. If human just take another Spell focus feat (Evo or Necro), just some point down of wisdom/spellcraft by dropping Deep Gnome
