So I'm in a static group that's been running for 2 years now and we're finally all ready to TR as a group and start this whole madness all over again from level 1.
First life, I went Drow pure Rogue, Assassin III. I focused on high INT and high DEX. A little squishy at times, but it was huge fun overall.
For the group TR, everyone is discussing trying out a different role - the Wizard wants to be a healer, the Cleric wants to try Artificer, etc. Except for me, that is. I don't really want a different role, but I'm open to mixing things up a little bit. Hence, this thread.
I'm looking for suggestions of splashes I can add on my next life.
I was thinking about taking 6 levels of Favored Soul at first, just because I've never played the class. So I would gain some self-healing and self-buffing, heavy armor proficiency. On a solo build, this might be more appealing. In a static group, it seems superfluous.
Then I thought maybe 6 levels of Ranger. That would give me free Improved Two Weapon Fighting and Manyshot, and martial weapon proficiency and access to Tempest I. But I'm not sure it's worth giving up 6 Rogue levels worth of Sneak Attack and capstone.
So, help me forumites. You're my only hope.
For flavor reasons, I want to keep Drow and Assassin II in the build. I want to keep focus on melee. I like being sneaky. I do not have access to Monk or Artificer. So, stay pure Rogue or splash something? If splashing, what split?
