    More to the point, part of being a good player is RECOGNIZING a bad build and FIXING it.

    Also, no build can be evaluated as "good" or "bad" independently of the person playing it. Each player has certain strengths and weaknesses in their playstyle, and if a build emphasizes a player's weaknesses and fails to use their strengths, it might be a good build in another person's hands, but is a bad one in theirs.

    There do exist builds that are inherently bad in an absolute sense, but those are usually pretty easy to spot.

    Yes. I am "necroing" this thread again.

    I feel somewhat (very) vindicated by the EPIC destinies ladies & gentleman, not to mention the introduction of LOLTH my character's deite.
    I used to be reminded that Lolth was not of the Eberron world. She is now!

    Meanwhile, back to the topic at hand. I was able to further the arc of my Fighter-Wizard, the homage toon to the original Fighter-Magicuser!

    Luckily I started in the WIZARD sphere of influence, and I have already reached the end of some lines of the tree that features such powers as FORCE STORM to go with my already force themed toon.

    My guildies have caught up to me now as well. Since most roles are filled in the party, it allows me the luxury of playing such a toon in our group.

    I am still shooting massive amounts of magic missles, thanks to enhacnements and the regenerating of spell points some time ago; I have constant use of missles spells.

    I can now call a LIVING SPELL as a pet. Force storm combined with the LIVING SPELL does thousands of hit points of damage.

    Thanks to some new armor and helmet skins, Sicarii now looks like the Drow of his beloved Underdark.

    Oh, I like the Fighter-Wizard best.

    glad you are enjoying this build. Tried this build and much like the soul.survivor found it very lack luster. After 3 lives as kensai melee dps really seemed lackluster. Especially after level 12. But as far as getting in parties i take the first people to click my lfms on 99%of quests. As long as you enjoy the build thats all that really matters.

    What do you think of, say, monk 2 / ftr 6 / wiz 12? Same number of feats, but gain lvl 6 spells, Evasion, and PM II or AM III (spammable Chain Missiles FTW! ). Lose some HPs and Haste Boost, but overall seems like an improvement. But I'm just theory-crafting right now.

    LOL +1 just for that

    I was thinking more like Picasso.

    That said, I'm also playing a Battle-Wizard, although I've changed from 6 Fighter to 6 Paladin this life... 12 Wizard / 6 Paladin / 2 Rogue / 5 Epic to be exact. The Defender of Siberys PrE gives +threat to spells AND melee, where Stalwart Defender only helps melee threat...and yes, melee damage is seriously lackluster with these builds. Also, I had a fair bit of Charisma on the build in any case, what with Intimidate and UMD, so the Pally also helped out on saves.

    The Draconic Incarnation Epic Destiny does a lot to fix the overall DPS situation, though, and the Pale Master / Defender of Siberys combo still gives amazing survivability.

    Nope, sorry, she's in Forgotten Realms, not Eberron. She IS in DDO though. But the Eberron parallel-universe twin of Llolth left Eberron, traveled to the Forgotten Realms, and got absorbed by Llolth...so Eberron is even MORE free of the taint of Llolth than it was before the expansion.

    Default In addition....

    In addition I really like ARCANE TEMPEST aka FORCE STORME. That does THOUSANDS of hit points of damage combined with the Living Meteor Storm.

    Also I finally got WHIRLWIND ATTACK.
    I had almost forgotten I had all the prereqs for it.

    Default Still Going!

    My Drow, Sicarii Darkhour, one of the first on the server 7 years ago, my fourth character, is now level 28.
    He is based on the dual class elves and drow of AD&D.
    Unfortunately he does not duel-wield hand-crossbows...yet.

    He is a duel-wielder who went Khopesh when he acquired the chaosblade.
    He currently is a level 10 Fighter & 10 Wizard, a warrior-mage.
    He has ranks in KENSEI and ARCANE MAGE specializing in FORCE.

    He has 5 EPIC levels as a MAGISTER which gave him several cool abilities my favorite being ARCANE TEMPEST (a better name would be FORCE STORM) which can do anywhere from 700-1200HP/DMG for several rounds or I believe 2500HP/DMG on a crit, don't quote me on that however.

    Now finally, 7 years after launch; an enhancement chain has been created SPECIFICALLY for a build as my own, the ELDRITCH KNIGHT.

    My end abilities include ELDRITCH TEMPEST which combined with my two-weapon attack releases a FORCE EXPLOSION of about 400HP/DMG to surrounding opponents, AND I now have permanent TENSER'S TRANSFORMATION which does little to impede my spells.

    It has been a long journey. I have never had the chance to TR this toon, always looking forward to the next update and playing one of my other 23 toons in the interim.

    Fun Stuff.
    Thank-you DDO godz for all the years of entertainment.
