In a discussion on pallies it was pointed out that you could probably make a better pally by using no pally levels at all. The original suggestion was 14/6 fighter/fvs. I'm leaning toward 12/8 fighter/cleric for a few reasons:
1) death ward
2) freedom of movement
Burst in particular is what I'd like to center the build around. Maximized, empowered, empower healed, quickened burst. With a 5th feat spent on 4 extra turnings to get into double-digit regenerating turns.
The fighter side would be kensei, with as many dps feats/enhancements as can fit.
Initial thought is thf dwarf using greataxes: carnifex 4-19, antique greataxe (slotted w/devotion) from 20+, with LD as the destiny. Heavy armor for the PRR.
Feats actually get tighter than I'd like, but I think it still works:
7 base (1, 3, 6, 9, 12, 15, 18)
2 epic (21, 24)
7 fighter (1, 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12)
Extra Turn Undead
Extend (makes dw & fom 16 minutes instead of 8:00, plus helps short-term buffs like divine favor)
Weapon Focus: Slashing
Weapon Specialization: Slashing
Greater Weapon Specialization: Slashing
Any builds like this to link to? I did a search but couldn't find anything.
Any thoughts? Would you rather go 14/6 instead, or maybe use FVS instead of cleric?
