    Default Ugly QuarterStaff-Cleric

    Well, my toon "Atropine" is nearing his 20th raids on a few key raids...and I am itching to TR him once I get to 20 on those and ultimately get disappointed with those lists...

    Anyway....

    He is currently a Human Clonk...full TWF...Stunning Fist DC near 60 now...and Full Meta-magic feats.

    WIS-based

    I was thinking about TRing him into a high-str Horc Q-Staff user.

    This is a mock write up..so I am just trying to do a Rough Draft. This build may not be "optimal" but it appears to be fun.

    Race Horc...
    For STR and THF bonuses (bonus damage and the glancing blows...though I heard glancing blows do not work wit Q-Staves now)...is this true)

    Class
    18 Cleric/2 Monk
    Anyway stats(rough draft)

    STR 18 Level ups here
    DEX 8
    CON 16
    INT 8
    WIS 14
    CHR 12

    I may or may not have enough stat points for those number listed above (he is a 36 point build).
    All stats have a +3 tome...I do have a +4 INT tome and a +4 CHR tome on him though.

    Leveling..
    Monk at first level for Skill points
    2-13 will be Cleric for Radiant servant 2
    14 Will be Monk for extra feat and evasion (evasion will probably work against spells...I doubt it'll work against Elite traps though)
    15-20 Cleric
    21-25 Commoner (yes..."epic" levels are actually the Commoner class)

    Feats...
    1 Power Attack
    1 (monk) Cleave
    3 Empower Healing
    6 Great Cleave (I think you will have a BAB of 4 here..if not swap this and Maximize)
    9 Maximize
    12 Improved Critical Bludgeon
    14 (monk) Toughness
    15 Empower
    18 Quicken
    21 Overwhelming Critical
    24 iono what to put here...

    Anyway, the idea is to run around smacking things with a stick and keep buffs and party members up.

    I have "heard" that THF feats do not work with Quarterstaves. Is this true?
    *If this is not true...I would remove empower for THF and I would get ITHF at level 24.

    Anyway, I think this would be fun to play...and it would give me a build to use my Q-Staffs

    Glancing blows are currently borked on staves; dunno if that's being fixed in U17.

    Any chance you can squeeze in a druid splash for Ram's Might + Shillelagh + Toughness I enh?

    These days I prefer not to dump DEX on any toon w/Evasion.

    bump...

    I posted this at the very beginning of the account server maintenance fiasco.

    Maybe can get some more advice.

    Would this build, but Favored Soul be better?

    I doubt it's fixed for the update. I've brought up the problem with Quarterstaves + Cleave + Glancing Blows several times the past few updates. I haven't heard boo from the Devs about the subject, so I don't even know if they acknowledge that its broken.

    Wait...

    I knew about glancing blows...as in regular attack chain...

    Does that mean there are NO glancing blows with a Q-Staff?

    Also...

    Does that mean that Cleave and Great Cleave do not work with a Q-Staff?

    If that is the case...then a Q-Staff Clonk would absolutely suck.
