    No. Int, Wis and Cha are the only stats that can provide a damage stat for Crossbows.

    This is how you'd build a Cleric/Inquisitive. However, the value in it would be that you're a pure caster with full casting stat who can also engage in ranged combat - not that you'd be a top notch...

    I know that classically you could use songs like Spellsong Trance or Song of Arcane Might on players with undead forms. However, that was before the Bard pass and I've never rechecked the Bard song...

    I think a non-Raging Barbarian ends up with some points in something like Athletics just to advance down the tree. That being said, most of what you're listing isn't bad - but it's primarily fluff...

    I probably won't revisit gearing until Sharn lands. But it's a basic hand axe/buckler layout with Light Armor. I think the major difference Scoundrel makes is that you go into Spellsinger rather than...

    I think 12/5/3 with Cleric makes a better breakdown since it allows you to just play a Strength-based Barbarian with Divine Might. It doesn't work all that well with Shield Bashing (since the best...

    I find Ravager lackluster as well. I think people get excited about the Ravager capstone, but it's not like you have endless Rages to burn on a death effect and the rest of the tree is uninspiring.

    I think Occult Slayer T5 is actually better than FB T5 due to the better critical effects (and Metalline, I suppose) for a pure Barbarian.

    Where FB really shines is in multi-class builds where...

    Darkness: Mobility is too critical for virtually any build for this to be a viable solution. That being said, I think that Scoundrel tanks deserve a look since they're primarily based around standing...

    I'd make an argument that Cleric/Strength Domain is a better choice:

    #1: It reduces you to a three stat build (Strength, Constitution, Charisma). This makes it easier to pile up decent saves while...

    To revisit this, one of the builds I messed around with was an Inquisitive Bard. However, calling it a 'Bard' is a bit of a misnomer.

    Rather, it was 10/8/2 Favored Soul/Bard/Artificer.

    I'm on record as disliking the term 'viable'.

    That being said, Sonic damage is horrible. Bards receive six total Sonic damage effects:

    My understanding is that most enemies have 0 MRR/PRR, but that Reaper mode grants them PRR/MRR they might not otherwise have. So what is a massive damage buff against non-Reaper foes becomes an...

    It's not impossible to build on a first life. However, you've got 18 of your 28 points pre-allocated to the three save stats for most builds. That leaves 10 points to split between Dexterity (for the...

    We've been examining how the various features of DXB work - and they're not quite as obvious as it would seem from the tooltips. One of the big surprises is that while EF/NHB are absolutely critical...

    It's not. I ran the numbers early in the post. It should work out roughly the same as Ranged Power boost (you have less Doublestrike so adding +30% has more impact, but you've got a lot of 150%/200%...

    I can't see how T5 mechanic wins the comparison here. Both T5's give +10% doubleshot and +30% ranged alacrity. The Sneak Attack/Double Vorpal is counterbalanced by the Law dice, extra ranged power...

    I don't remember the history well enough to know if there's some justification for that build. However, in the modern day, it's definitely a "why are you playing Bard?" build - the 15 levels of Bard...
