View Full Version : Centered Kensai Revisited

06-22-2016, 10:10 AM
So i have been running a centered Kensai bladeforged, which i realize is not a new concept but i have changed it around some in light of the fighter pass and changes to divine grace. I don't post at all really so hopefully the format will be ok and people will find the build helpful.

Thiralas 12 fighter - 6 Paladin - 2 Monk

I did the level split this way for a couple of reasons rather than the 6 monk/2 pally version. With the cap to divine grace 6 pally really improves the saves and i wanted high saves paired with evasion. It also gives you an extra twist as you get turn undead through pally levels rather than having to twist in Bane of Undeath.

Str 18
Dex 6
Con 18
Wis 6
Int 8
char 16

Epic Feats: Overwhelming Critical, Toughness, Perfect Two Handed Fighting, Epic Toughness, Perfect Two Weapon Fighting, Dire charge, Scion of the Astral Plane

Enhancements and Destiny:


Along with Iron Skin from Shintao and Dodge/1 SA from Ninja Spy


Gear (this is what I actually own and am wearing, I'm sure this can be improved in several slots):
Head: Sightless
Neck: Epic Lions Main
Trinket: Legendary Empowered Dragonscale
Cloak: Epic Hide of the Fallen
Belt: Legendary Animated Rope
Goggles: GS HP and Displace
Docent: Legendary Heartwood
Wrist: Epic Ethereal Bracers

That's about it. I found this build to be a lot of fun and probably the best melee toon i have played to date. Very survivable, good DPS, and EE solo capable. Let me know what you think :)

does ''one with the blade'' and ''dance of flowers'' even work??
I twisted dance of flowers and nothing happens. no extra weapon damage nothing.

You have to be centered (in robes, no WF body feats, or nude and have One with the Blade or Kamas, Staffs, or fists if you have no monk levels) for anything in GMoF to work. The +1.5[w] may not show up in inventory sheet. It's been a long, long time since I twisted it and do not remember.
