    Default Need a good 2nd life build/advice

    I'm getting ready to TR my monk. I'm in need of a good leveling build and advice to get a fighter life. I just need something to quickly and easily get to 20, then TR again. Monk splash would be nice, since I don't have any good armor in the bank(lots of nice outfits though). I also lack GS weapons, I could craft some, but would rather not since they'd be useless in life #3. I've done some research and thought I'd get some last minute advice.

    I would think the Godhand (http://forums.ddo.com/showthread.php?t=228369) would fit any player that was looking for a Fighter PL and enjoyed playing monk toons. It fits what ever gear you happen to have still (WF or not), and the playstyle is also simular to a monk.

    Personally, I am not a fan of deep splashes, and especially not for transition lives. The Godhand is also specifically designed for hate tanking, what exactly are you going to care to hate tank while leveling? The fighter life I am using on my gonna-be-a-monk-again is:

    18 fighter / 2 monk (2 monk, 18 fighter)
    half-elf
    16 str + levels
    16 dex
    14 con
    8 int
    16 wis
    8 int

    (this was also made before tome retention, so a 34 point build could pretty easily start at 15 Dex instead and throw on a +2 tome)

    Feats
    1 TWF & Mnk & Stunning Fist
    2 Power Attack
    3 Stunning Blow & Toughness
    4 Weapon Focus
    6 Past Life & Weapon Spec
    8 ITWF
    9 Improved Sunder
    10 Greater WF
    12 GTWF & Toughness
    14 Greater WS
    15 Toughness
    16 IC
    18 Superior WF & Toughness

    Critical Enhancements
    4 Haste Boost, Human Versatility
    3 Stunning Blow
    2 Kensei, Improved Recoveries

    Stuns stuns and more stuns, Evasion, heal amp, reasonable DPS mode, Kensei 2 asap.

    Thanks for the advice fellas.

    @ Kinerd: Would you use wraps with the 18/2, I noticed the monk PL listed so I assumed so. I guess you take Stunning Blow over stunning fist for the enhancements and the Kensei bonus' to DC. Where would you take the monk levels? Not sure exactly at what level evasion goes from being a nice bonus to a life-saver.

    You could also try one of the other famous builds if you feel like it,I liked that one quite alot,
    12fighter/6monk or pally/2 monk or pally.If 6 monk,go unarmed or kamas.Elseways,Go khopeshs.
    I`m sure both have names around,just google it.

    Yes wraps, but I take both Stunning Blow and Stunning Fist. They both benefit from the enhancements.

    The order I went was 2 monk rest fighter. THF and raw DPS have a lot going for them in the early levels, but I wanted to get stunning ASAP, and evasion is sweet all day long.
