Key Words [Ranger, TWF, Pick, Tempest, Warforged]
The requester wanted a warforged TWF build using picks and bows. He’d mentioned having a wizard splash for healing in his request but in later discussion he decided to drop that. For the re-make I’m going closer to his revision of my request with a pretty standard tempest DPS build.
I didn’t do much that was really creative here. It starts out with straight tempest ranger, takes fighter to grab some mid level combat feats, then settles back into a pretty standard ranger pattern.
Because were TWF with power attack and power attack enhancements it seemed a good idea to crank up attack as well as damage where possible. Favored enemy is heavily leveraged here and crits with the picks should be damned impressive.
I also tried to get as much healing as possible here without taking feats for it. It won’t be amazing but you can top yourself off and you aren’t too hard for others to heal. Will saves also receive some attention so that on balance saves are fairly decent all around on the build.
Hit points are pretty hefty for a ranger and I took pretty much everything available for it. AC and other defenses are decent but nothing special. This isn’t really a tank but it can take some heat while it dishes out the beatings.

This is a pretty aggressive build, either with the bow or the picks. Get in there and tear up the enemy. Try not to pull to many critters on you at once though. Pick one target and destroy it, then move to the next. This build can solo fairly well as all rangers can, although it may be expensive to heal yourself at higher levels.
A 28pt version is pretty easy as none of the feats are stat dependent.
