    Default Kensei tempest shintao?

    Note before reading any further this is purely for fun and challenge it duel wields long swords. Reason I chose half-orc is for the bonus to strength they get. Kensei is for the bonus signature weapon and +1 ki generation on crits and meditation. Tempest is of course because this is a duel wielding character. Shintao is because I went for light path and if you use your hands you get byshek plus the bonus to ac and saves against tainted creatures and and a smite tainted creatures is also available. Feel free to edit this build to your liking I just thought I would share this with you guys.

    aye , you are incorrect.

    Fighter Kensei I
    You are the unrivaled master of your chosen weapon. Your focus and training grant you a +1 bonus to Bluff, Concentration, Diplomacy, and Intimidate skills, a +1 Combat Feat DC's, a +1 to Reflex saves against magical effects, and 1 additional Action Boost per rest. If you possess a Ki bar, you gain 1 additional Ki on criticals and when meditating. You can select a single weapon type as your signature weapon. You may possess only one prestige enhancement line at a time for each class.

    So I'm guessing the Ranger free Diehard qualifies for ShintaoI , hadn't considered that.

    interesting build idea that has some interesting synergy. I'd probably go windII stance for the doublestrike bonus to mesh better with tempest doublestrike. I'd swap WaterII for WindII.

    Drop stunning fist since DC is based on 1/2 monk level it won't be worth it , on top of the fact that it only works unarmed.
    Edit ...DUH yeah , forgot its a shintao prereq ...
    For sure beg borrow and steal to get the dex for gTWF. I'd consider dropping the con to 14 to start and putting the points in dex.

    Without stuns from SF , consider another animal path over crane. I'm thinking turtle for the HP and concentration, or badger for the intim bonus if you are going that route(doesn't seem so) other option is monkey for the minor resists but they do stack with items so that is a bonus.

    Edit 2 , i'd suggest grabbing the second monk level earlier to get evasion that much sooner.

    Taking into account what was said here I did update the first post with some these changes:

    moved on monk level down earlier for early access to evasion this is more of a enhancement for lower levels

    added use of a +1 tome and traded 2 points of con for dex making 17 (needed for gTWF)

    swapped out water stance II for wind II originally I did this for unbalancing strike but for twf wind stance does help.

    I kept the crane only because I do plan on using stunning blow since strength of this character is fairly good.


    however if you wish to use another animal path with this build feel free to do so
