    ** work in progress - theoretical build**

    12 Ranger / 7 Pally / 1 Monk

    There are a number of very impressive AC builds around at the moment, so I wanted to give it a go myself.

    My main is close to another TR & I thought I might take another ranger life before jumping into artificer. He is currently running as a WF exploiter, and I have all but fallen for AC builds

    This build will remain WF as it is my personnal favorite race. The racial immunities, enhancements and being healable by all caster classes still makes it one of the better leveling races for me.

    Reality for puggers & soloers (like me), is that:
    -there is no bard
    -that pally has no AP invested in his aura
    -that halfling isn't interested in being your companion

    You should get a recitation though (love to the divines out there)

    The only things you can really count on are what you can bring yourself. Unfortunately, this build has no super UMD, so its really all in the gear.

    Final Stats (no temp buffs, no abashai):
    ***work in progress***
    STR 30 (16 + 7 + 2 + 2 + 1 + 2 = 30 (with equipment I have now), + 2 (+4 t) + 1 (+2 guild) +3 (excp) = 36 (with equipment/buffs I dont yet have) )
    DEX 28
    CON 32
    INT 14
    WIS 28
    CHA 18

    5.5 (weapon) + 5 (enh) +6 (PA) + 6 (bladesworn) + 11 (STR) + 2 (DF) + 8 (FE) +2 (ship) + 2 (rams) = ~47 + effects

    main hand crit:

    divine sacrifice crit, same scenario:

    exhalted smite crit, same scenario:

    Seems a shame to dump-stat CHA on any build with so many pally lvls.

    Yeah, but would be hard to find 6 build points to get 12 base (thinking 12 +2 tomb for DM1 - drop wis by 2 & dex by 1? may not be worth it...)

    It is a more realistic DPS increase than bladesworn (1 minute out of 10). Really, bs is just there for the flavor & realistically I'll try it for ***** & giggles, and then spend those 6 AP on healers friend 3 or something else. I will look cool though....

    Seems a bit squishy too, with the (leveling) gear I have, Soul will only have ~640 at cap
    - knosts, +3 exc. CON, tharaak bracelet
    But will have the nice AC with just what I have, so thats a bonus.

    Any ideas for upping the HP? (while keeping the AC, more hp may only come from epic gear)

    I've been running a few basic numbers & it seems that 6 fighter (SD1) and 2 monk gives a better split for a few reasons:

    - 5(!) more feats (ok, WF:slash & WS:slash are probably going to be 2 of them, but thats 3 more toughness or 2 + quickdraw, or add in active pally PL)

    - surprisingly, gives the same AC (which means potential for more in a party/raid group)
    : SD1 & stance = +3 ac, monk2 = +1 ac ('centered' bonus, works with non-ki weapons) & +1 WIS enhancement (rebalance stats for +1 AC).
    : lose DoS1 (-2 ac), lose pally aura (-3 ac).

    - Also picks up haste boost, which is a very nice little DPS boost when you need it.

    - +2 STR with fighter enhancements (and AP shouldn;t be so tight)
    ------

    Always a tradeoff, so no smites, no divine sacrifice, no self-cast PFE, no emergency LOH healing, lower saves (by -4, using projected stats in OP), no bladesworn/unyielding


    Hmmm....

    Epiphany of sorts,

    Horc with dumped int could work well using te 12/6/2 layout

    Could reach 38 STR (18 starting as 36pt, 16 as 32pt ), much more with better guild buffs / big tomes etc

    could get to 75 AC in DPS mode (self buffing, not inc. favored enemy)


    --------


    Not listing numbers, I just typed all of it out & the ****ing forum logged me out -> lost all the info

    Try logging in thru My DDO rather than the forums directly. I had the same issue until someone suggested I do that instead. No idea why it works, but it does.
