Wanted to get some Alchemist past lives but just couldn't find the synergy I was looking for based on my play style which often includes running alone. So after much debate I am sharing that intelligence build here... basically plays like you would expect from a Monk. Build utilizes the EK tree to supplement PRR/AC/MRR, while buffs come from Alchemist/wiz and typically stack. I have paired it down to accommodate almost any 36pt. build without tons of racial/heroic past lives. With some pretty basic gear I have been able to solo most heroic reaper up to R3/4 and higher when running with groups. Feel free to make adjustments to your play style and good luck..
As built use the Harper Tree up to level 11 to use your intelligence to hit/damage, then switch things out at 12 when you can take Battalion Brew.
Heavy hits will come from great cleave, fist of iron, quick strike, void strike, & shadows cannot exist without light/also a great source of heals.
Once you hit your third level of wizard and take the core spellsword you automatically get ghost touch, I recommend picking up the highest level vorpal you can equip to smack things down quickly with.

Note: Harper Tree pts change at level 11, Monk Philosophy change at level 12 from light to dark. Early on light heals should come from your light monk strikes until you switch over to dark. You will then want to use Shadows Cannot Exist Without Light as a main source of healing for you and anyone standing close.
