Hello everyone. I have just started playing DDO again after about a year hiatus and came back to find that things have changed vastly in the toon department. I have always liked playing rangers and I am partial to TWF. I had a good Tempest build back in the day but now with all the changes and nerfs I am not sure where to start. My last tempest was a max dex build with a 36 DEX, splashed monk with a good WIS for added AC, weapon finesse for rapiers/short swords, and all the Tempest enhancements. Swapped out armor for robes and bracers. Now while I loved the high to hit and *decent* AC i found that i was not damaging mobs as much as I would have liked to, hp were lacking and on elite content i was getting 1 or 2 hit killed by named mobs. Now I am looking for something that I can still TWF/Tempest but do more damage. I solo a lot and would love to have good hp, self healing, self buffs, etc. I am almost leaning towards an elf fighter with the dragonmark displacement, taking the TWF feats and going STR based, complimenting the stats with auction house +1 tomes to satisfy the DEX req for GTWF. Maybe splash 1 level of caster for ability to wand whip blur/stoneskin? Any thoughs would be greatly appreciated.
