View Full Version : Impaqt's FvS Build (from WAY back)

10-02-2017, 09:03 PM
Many years ago I build a Favored Soul that I used one of Impaqt's templates for. It was the one that was a 2WF pure FvS. I loved this build and it was my main toon for years. However, over the last couple of years, this toon simply couldn't keep up. Not enough damage dealing and not enough HP (I finally got into the high 900's with one of the +8 Insightful CON items)/defenses as he simply SOAKED up the damage.

I was sad. This toon basically has been parked awaiting Good Things from a FvS pass. While we didn't get that, we did get some minor changes that I *think* will prove worthwhile and I wanted to see what everyone else thought (and I think Impaqt is back around as well?).

Firstly, there are a couple of what I now deem "silly" feats. He's a human who took Toughness as a bonus feat at level 1. While not horrible, there seems to be better. Maybe.

Also, I took Spell Pen at level 21. I was scratching me head on this yesterday before I realized this was taken before Overwhelming Critical was usable for a non-STR build. Yuck. This is the FIRST feat I would change for sure. I'd also add in Intensify at some point or maybe one of Master feats (I don't know how those really work though). I'd also like to fit in Greater Ruin.

For stats, I can actually dump either WIS or CHR. Currently, he is a WIS build as Impaqt's theory was to minimize CHR in general and get enough to cast spells. I think I would dump CHR as I have a +5 WIS tome and only a +3 CHR tome. This means that I could pump more into CON which currently has started at 12.

Whereas STR is in the mid to high 20's, WIS is over 60 in the right Destiny. I think (not for sure) that that would mean a darn good uptick in damage. With the extra HP I think I could get to around 1300. Overall, that seems pretty cool.

Any thoughts or suggestions on any of this?

With the forthcoming Vistani tree, I'm thinking you could do a fun Blood of Vol build. The melee side of things is easy enough: for feats take TWF x3, Precision, Imp Crit:Pierce, and Overwhelming Crit; put at least 41 APs Vistani for capstone + tier-5s. But what to do with the spellcasting side of things? Are there enough feats & APs left to make DC casting effective? Having a Vistani build with Implosion and Blade Barrier would be cool, but can it be made workable? TBH, I don't know what the DC and Spell Pen thresholds you should be aiming for are these days, so I'm not sure.
