    Default Barbarian TR Life

    Little bit of back story, feel free to skip to the build if thats more your thing!

    After much thought, and boredom with the 'endgame' as it is currently, I've decided to start work on a Completionist using my main, an 18Wiz/2Rge, the character I almost solely play, except some testing builds and a couple i hope to bring up to Shroud farming status as soon as possible, i just don't LIKE playing alts all that much.

    I simply love the levelling experience of the game, and became quite hooked on the idea of TRs and Completionist, a feature i've been calling for in alot of games over the years :P (Sadly i am quite new to DDO despite being very comfortable in the pnp background. Completionist forces me to play things out of my comfort zone, and i've stayed mostly in the caster/healer role in MMOs in general for a long time, so a little learning experience can only be a good thing?

    A little research, and i find that Barbarian is the least fitting class for me, with its major lack of self sufficiency, and as i like to shortman/pug alot of quests when I really cannot solo them, Barb will be a challenge I look forward to overcoming. So i've decided to get this out of the way as 2nd life, starting from an almost useless Past Life..


    Anyways, to the build:
    My goals
    * Competitive TWF - i don't want to be a burden. Most likely won't see epic content however, will not have access to 'Endgame' gear (lvl 18+) except for things i consider vital, GS is very doable however. Alot of good 11-16 gear can be collected, but focussing on as low ML as possible.
    * Survivability - This comes through stealth, Evasion UMD, and a ton of HP hopefully. Build works out at 400 naked, (With an easy: 60Con+30GFL+10Fav+45GS) combined with a couple of rages, easy UMD of buffs should make it quite tough. I think Saves could do with some major work however
    *Trap skills..incredibly easy 10-15% Exp boost on most quests, and simple quality of life. 1 Dimensional characters don't interest me as much as variation and utility.

    Please give me any feedback or advice on this, as well as possible gearing ideas. I have time to farm almost anything that will help, but focus on things that will be useful in later lives also! Most builds will not wait long at 20 at all, although some past lives I'll want to collect multiple of, eg Paladin.

    This build looks like i've diluted down the best parts of 3 classes, which i'm a little concerned about. But is there a better way to do what i want? I'm happy to change my line of thinking on this.
    Anyways, tear it apart please
