Greetings.I've been asked by a couple people what I would make if I were to create a ranged tank with my main, Arsont (Who will, in theory, have access to Completionist). While I'm fond of the 12/6/2 monk/ranger/fighter split, I feel the following build would be a bit better for dedicated tanking. Since ranged builds seem to be FOTM since the change to 10k Stars, figured I'd post my variant.
And so, I present The Fad
I'd probably take Cleric dilly for leveling purposes, then swap to Barb once I needed the con bracket. I'd be swapping out FE:Undead for Construct around 16 or so. Enhancements can be shuffled around as needed based on the gear/tomes available to you. Some of the feats (Namely, CE, PA and GTWF) are flexible as well. Stunning Fist is thrown in for a CC option, but I may swap for barb PL or a second Toughness if I decide against running epics.Code:Character Plan by DDO Character Planner Version 03.09.02 DDO Character Planner Home Page Level 20 Lawful Neutral Half-Elf Male (7 Fighter \ 7 Monk \ 6 Ranger) Hit Points: 376 Spell Points: 305 BAB: 18\18\23\28\28 Fortitude: 20 Reflex: 17 Will: 15 Starting Feat/Enhancement Abilities Base Stats Modified Stats (36 Point) (Level 1) (Level 20) Strength 15 24 Dexterity 16 21 Constitution 14 20 Intelligence 10 15 Wisdom 16 22 Charisma 8 12 Tomes Used +2 Tome of Strength used at level 7 +2 Tome of Dexterity used at level 7 +2 Tome of Constitution used at level 7 +2 Tome of Intelligence used at level 7 +2 Tome of Wisdom used at level 7 +2 Tome of Charisma used at level 7 +3 Tome of Intelligence used at level 11 Starting Feat/Enhancement Base Skills Modified Skills Skills (Level 1) (Level 20) Balance 3 17 Bluff -1 3 Concentration 2 19 Diplomacy -1 3 Disable Device n/a n/a Haggle -1 3 Heal 3 8 Hide 3 9 Intimidate 3 30 Jump 2 18 Listen 3 8 Move Silently 3 7 Open Lock n/a n/a Perform n/a n/a Repair 0 4 Search 0 4 Spot 3 14 Swim 2 9 Tumble n/a 10 Use Magic Device 1 14 Level 1 (Fighter) Feat: (Half-Elf Dilettante) Half-Elf Dilettante: Barbarian Feat: (Past Life) Past Life: Barbarian Feat: (Past Life) Past Life: Bard Feat: (Past Life) Past Life: Cleric Feat: (Past Life) Past Life: Favored Soul Feat: (Past Life) Past Life: Fighter Feat: (Past Life) Past Life: Monk Feat: (Past Life) Past Life: Paladin Feat: (Past Life) Past Life: Ranger Feat: (Past Life) Past Life: Rogue Feat: (Past Life) Past Life: Sorcerer Feat: (Past Life) Past Life: Wizard Feat: (Fighter Bonus) Point Blank Shot Feat: (Selected) Zen Archery Level 2 (Monk) Feat: (Monk Bonus) Toughness Level 3 (Ranger) Feat: (Favored Enemy) Favored Enemy: Undead Feat: (Selected) Weapon Focus: Ranged Weapons Level 4 (Monk) Feat: (Monk Bonus) Stunning Fist Level 5 (Ranger) Level 6 (Ranger) Feat: (Selected) Completionist Level 7 (Ranger) Level 8 (Ranger) Feat: (Favored Enemy) Favored Enemy: Evil Outsider Level 9 (Ranger) Feat: (Selected) Past Life: Arcane Prodigy Level 10 (Fighter) Feat: (Fighter Bonus) Precise Shot Level 11 (Fighter) Level 12 (Fighter) Feat: (Selected) Greater Two Weapon Fighting Feat: (Fighter Bonus) Improved Precise Shot Level 13 (Fighter) Level 14 (Fighter) Feat: (Fighter Bonus) Weapon Specialization: Ranged Weapons Level 15 (Monk) Feat: (Selected) Dodge Feat: (Monk Path) Path of Inevitable Dominion: Fists of Darkness Level 16 (Monk) Level 17 (Monk) Level 18 (Monk) Feat: (Monk Bonus) Combat Expertise Feat: (Selected) Power Attack Level 19 (Monk) Level 20 (Fighter) Enhancement: Fighter Armor Class Boost I Enhancement: Fighter Haste Boost I Enhancement: Fighter Haste Boost II Enhancement: Fighter Haste Boost III Enhancement: Ranger Sprint Boost I Enhancement: Elven Arcane Archer: Imbue Acid Arrows Enhancement: Elven Arcane Archer: Imbue Explosive Arrows Enhancement: Elven Arcane Archer: Imbue Force Arrows Enhancement: Elven Arcane Archer: Imbue Slaying Arrows Enhancement: Elven Arcane Archer: Imbue Terror Arrows Enhancement: Fighter Stalwart Defender I Enhancement: Human Adaptability Constitution I Enhancement: Human Improved Recovery I Enhancement: Human Improved Recovery II Enhancement: Human Versatility I Enhancement: Human Versatility II Enhancement: Static Charge Enhancement: Ten Thousand Stars Enhancement: Way of the Patient Tortoise I Enhancement: Way of the Patient Tortoise II Enhancement: Monk Improved Recovery I Enhancement: Monk Improved Recovery II Enhancement: Monk Ninja Spy I Enhancement: Adept of Wind Enhancement: Adept of Rock Enhancement: Adept of Rain Enhancement: Racial Toughness I Enhancement: Racial Toughness II Enhancement: Elven Arcane Archer: Conjure +2 Arrows Enhancement: Elven Arcane Archer: Conjure +3 Arrows Enhancement: Elven Arcane Archer: Conjure +4 Arrows Enhancement: Elven Arcane Archer: Conjure +5 Arrows Enhancement: Elven Arcane Archer I Enhancement: Improved Intimidate I Enhancement: Improved Intimidate II Enhancement: Improved Jump I Enhancement: Improved Jump II Enhancement: Improved Tumble I Enhancement: Improved Tumble II Enhancement: Half-Elf Barbarian Constitution I Enhancement: Fighter Strength I Enhancement: Monk Wisdom I Enhancement: Monk Wisdom II Enhancement: Fighter Toughness I Enhancement: Fighter Toughness II
As I noted, this would be the build -I- would do for my multi-TR main.
For a 32 point build:
-Drop Completionist. Swap in a second Toughness
-Drop strength to 13, wisdom to 15 and bump up int to 11.
This will result in slightly less AC and -1 str bracket, but will be easier for anyone without +3 tomes (I only included a +3 int tome for now in my version).
Provided my numbers are correct, this build will be looking at mid 700 hp in earth and Stalwart stance, with 95 raid buffed AC. Saves will be 38/35/36 with just GH and ship buffs. Not amazing, but passable. If I can get a +3 con tome, I'll swap dilly to Paladin instead to buff the saves a bit. Also, Stunning fist will be mid 40's (Varies based on stance, exact wisdom, PL, etc...) for workable epic CC.
This iteration is a pretty even str/wis split...I may LR and drop str a bit to bump wisdom, depending on how great of an effect 10k Stars has on dps compared to str bonus.
Anyhow. Any suggestions or improvements are greatly appreciated. If there's something I need to clarify, I'll gladly provide what insight I can.
