View Full Version : Eldritch Knight Revised

07-01-2018, 11:45 PM
Hi folks,
(Wasn't sure where to put this and new posting...)
I've been mulling around w/EK idea since I started DDO circa 2010. Coming from a PnP background as DM and player from AD&D, 3.0/3.5ed, and 3.75(Pathfinder) I liked the idea of EK (DMG), but it was weak, Duskblade (PHB2) was great fun, and Magus (Pathfinder Ultimate Magic) was also fun.
So I wanted to combine them w/DDO by taking EK and splashing w/AA and Kensai mostly.
(Despite the word Sword used, not restricted to them, and open to axes, clubs, etc.)
Critiques welcome:
