    Default Stunning Blow:Epics

    To be able to stun well in epics specially for epic hards and elites what is the best starting strength and what sort of minimum strength (for the sake of strength modifier) should people aim for at end game.

    I am presuming Barbarians should be able to get a high strength modifier due to their rages but what about other melee toons.

    I have both a hide of goristro (+10 stun), and a drow greataxe weapon of the master (Exceptional Combat Mastery +5). My starting strength is 18. I will be a 17/2/1 Druid/monk/fighter. Fighter can give me 1 stunning blow enhancements and I am a horc.

    Going by my toons stunning fist, 50 is fairly reliable for epic hard and 60 is fairly reliable for epic elite.

    But you might want to take stunning fist instead, since at level 24 you are getting a bonus of 12 just from being level 24, that means your str would need to be 24 points higher than your wisdom to be even, and even then its a 15 second cooldown compared to a 6 second cooldown, and stunning blow doesnt benefit from twf (if you were planning on twf) where stunning fist does.

    The DC is 10 + half Character level + Wisdom modifier + Stunning item bonus.

    Stunning Fist's effectiveness is augmented by a Monk's WIS modifier as well as any handwraps with +Stunning Enhancements.

    A successful Fortitude save negates this effect. (DC = 10 + Str mod + other modifiers)

    Good luck getting DC 60 Stunning Blow without Dwarf Kensei 12 or a Death Frenzy Barb.

    WF Kensei 2 also works. My WF Monster has a 50 STR and a 60 DC Stunning Blow exactly.

    Is that without fighter pl's and taking 4 ftr stunning blow enhancements and 3(?) racial tactics? Also, sustainable? I have a hard time figuring out how to reach 60 on my first fighter life =/
