I'm looking to get through my sorc life, but being a caster isnt my thing. Im hoping that It could be a Warforged/Bladeforged build.

14 sorc 4 paladin 2 ftr worked well back in the day to get me through my three. However, a lot things have changed since (Bard, Ftr, Barb passes) and a lot better options exist.

14 sorc/6 bard
12 sorc/8 ftr (2nd best option imo. Just max out Kensei and Stalwart and use spells for buffing and healing. Better option if warforged)
9 sorc/8 ftr/3 paladin (best option imo, same advice as above.)
12 sorc/6 rogue/2 paladin w/ GXB

BF 9 sorc/8 ftr/3 paladin Assuming you don't have +3 or +4 tome for TWF, just for easy givings.

18 str
8 dex
16 con
14-16 int
6 wis
10 charisma

SWF+orb or THF

Weapons Focus
Greater Weapon Focus
Weapon Specialization
Greater Weapons Specialization (drop first if to many feats)
Adamantine Body
THF or SWF
ITHF or ISWF
GTHF or GSWF
Extend
IC: Slash or Pierce or whatever you plan on using
PA
Cleave
GCleave


16 BF racial tree
36 Kensei
13 Stalwart
08 Harpers

Run in Dreadnaught or DC, or whatever destiny you're comfy in.

Front load melee levels, or I would. Ok, there's some pieces. Go play in a planner.


However, going BF is like personal flavor. If you're just wanting a PL, do the same build w/ Human and TR out of it at 20 to move along.

If it's just for the past life, I suggest a 6/6/8 build, ignoring Sorc except for a few buff spells.
A Bladeforged Paladin/Fighter/Sorc would be best in my opinion, though nearly any two melee classes would work.

9 sorcerer 8 fighter 3 paladin bladeforged. Ignore sorcerer except buffs, tier 5 kensei, defensive stance, divine might, divine grace, recon slave (and possibly recon spell, not sure if 9 sorcerer gets lol 6 spells). Easy as pie.

CThru posted a bunch of wiz / ftr Arcane Warrior (https://www.ddo.com/forums/showthread.php/476982-The-Arcane-Warrior-3-different-builds) builds; any of them can be adapted to sorc instead. For banging out a sorc PL, I would do either WF sorc 12 (Recon) / ftr 8 (Gtr Weap Focus) or BF ftr 8 / sorc 9 / pal 3, depending largely on whether you want a BF IPL as well.

12 sorc for recon? never. 3 splash of various things is always better. for healing, either do bf, or just be a human and scroll. a nice thing about sorc is wand and scroll mastery too.
