    Default Question about what to build.

    Okay, I have several very good repeaters sitting in the banks of a few of my characters. My question is what kind of character to build knowing I plan on being repeater based.

    Oh, I do have 32pt builds and pretty much at least 1 of all +1 tomes, but please don't include raid loot and/or +2/3 tomes, as this is unrealistic.

    you can add 1 +2 tome at around LVL 10 to reflect 1750 favor.

    I think bards are one of the best classes for repeaters. Your songs offer you a big damage bonus available to no other class for that weapon and there arn't many feats you really need to make the repeater work better. A couple levels of fighter might be a nice addition.

    Yeah, this was my original thought, but I have a Bard now that is all about the bow. I was trying to come up with something different, but I think you're probably right.

    thought of a human cleric with a lvl of fighter at level 1 just for the extra feats?

    That doesn't really get the most out of the repeater.

    Just a remark, in case you didn't know: 6 str halflings easily have encumbrance issues (halfling have a -25% carrying penalty).

    If you don't want to roll up a bard you might want to consider rogue as a base class for your repeater build.

    Take it easy
    -Tal
    If whisperdoom wasn't an exploit what is one.....
    Nexiv lvl 14 (8 Fig/3 Pal/3 Rog) & Selgar lvl 14 (8 Fig/3 Pal/3 Rog)
    Zexiv lvl 14 (9 Rog/3 Pal/2 Fig) & Talson lvl 14 (13 Cleric/1 Sorc)

    Ordos Draconum
