    Exclamation Martens Complete!

    Used my tomes and epic tokens on Lamannia to finish Martens there and added screen shots to main post.

    Titan's Grip for an additional +6 STR psionic bonus for a minute ?
    Also have you used the augment slots on the Epic Jidz-Tet'ka ?

    Sorry for the late response, forgot I posted here. :P

    Anyway, I think that was my point. Since you're likely to deal more damage keeping your bane wraps on with all the CC going around, I'd suggest taking a different Shintao requirement. It's not like you *need* SF.

    I just really never had any luck farming that quest and while I would deffinately use them if I had them its not something I feel is a must have... but you do now give me something to look into trying to get. I do have and have use some of the cookies with this, even them only 2 or so times have I really went , "oh this could really help right now!"

    Yep, sorry for the over-site I have dex +7 using the 2 slots.

    I really like my SF, don't ever see me giving that up... on the final build I did take cleave though.

    Keep it coming, if the post helped you please let me know, may sound strange but it make me feel good when people say it helped and when you're fighting cancer can't get enough feeling good

    If anyone feels there is something I could do to tweak him even better let me know, I am always welcome to improvements.

    Be safe all.

    A possible tweak im looking at..

    You take toughness twice.. if you trade 1 toughness for weapon focus bludgeoning you gain +1 to hit.. you can then drop jumpII or concentrationII and pick up orcish Power Attack 1. This -1 will negate the feat and grant another +1 to damage per blow at the expense of 22 health. I know this is fairly small but just thought I would mention it.

    EDIT: You can also leave the enhancements and view it as another potential +1 to hit depending on your needs

    Lightbulb

    It might have been mentioned before, but I find this cloak to be much better in that it adds more STR, free Featherfall, and has a yellow augment slot:

    Epic Cape of the Roc - (Cloak) Feather Falling, Exceptional Strength +1, Exceptional Strength +2, Roc's Strength (CL:8, 3/3 rest), Empty Yellow Augment Slot [ML: 20, BtC Acquire]

    Exceptional Strength stacks as long as it's a different value. You really don't need Ghostly from the Epic Cloak of Night because I don't think it stacks with Blur/Displace. The DR doesn't stack with monk DR, Invisibility can be gotten much more reliably and long lasting from the Nyoko's clickie, and Deathblock only needs to be worn when fighting Beholders and dispelling casters (which are very rare), and AC is useless anyway unless it's worn on an AC tank.

    Epic Treasure Hunter's spyglass? I can think of better trinkets than that one. Search for:

    Tharne's Goggles - (Goggles) Tharne's Wrath, Sneak Attack Bonus +5, True Seeing, Search +15, Spot +15 [ML: 13, BtC Acquire]

    to retain your True Sight, +spot bonus, and get +8 sneak attack damage. Alternatively, you can craft a triple HP goggles to buff your HP for tanking. True Sight is really only needed for secret doors and enemy casters who like to use Blur/Displace.

    For the trinket, find and wear:

    Litany of the Dead - (Trinket) Turn the Page (CL:12, 3/3 rest), Litany of the Dead - Ability Bonus, Taint of Evil, Litany of the Dead - Combat Bonus [ML: 13, BtC Acquire, Exclusive]

    or

    Epic Bloodstone - (Trinket) Seeker +8 [ML: 20, BtC Acquire]

    Although, personally I greatly prefer Litany of the Dead, because it lets me use Silver Flame Potions without being incapacitated, boosts all my ability scores by +1, and boosts my damage by +1.

    Hope this helps.

    Quick question on the gear loadout - why slot Dex 6 on the Epic Jidz Tetkas when you've got Madstone Boots?

    You know whenever I try to skimp on an explanation to save keystrokes, it seems I always get called on it but it is a fair question.

    For the most part, the boots slot for monks (or at least for me) is a hot swap slot. Meaning that you try to fit in whatever is missing in a given fight in that slot. Being a Str based build I listed only the Madstone boots. Frankly, I keep Supreme Tyrant Green Steel Weave Boots of Lightning with good and lightning guard on more than I do my Madstone boots as once I have used the clicky and had enough agro to activate the proc I then switch. In the future I will most likely make Green Steel boots that have 65 hps since at this level I have retired both my cloak and goggles that did have that bonus.

    Nice to see an update Marten! Thanks.

    I use boots as a swap spot too. The only problem is that I need something other than boots when Horoth's around. I'll be using goggles for any new clickies.

    Madstone Boots? They're an ancient DDO Myth aren't they?

    I've decided that they don't exist.

    Exclamation Martens Spotted!!!

    After the passing of eight new moons, Martens has returned! It's said he's changed... 350 pounds of pure muscle, fire, and smoke. Where he treads, DEATH follows!





    Stats with gear, no buffs.

    I will post details at a later date.
