    Default Ranger/monk/palie

    First and above all i thank you for taking some time to watch at this little thread.

    Okies, to start of with goals,

    (i request a bit help on tweaking the build or any feeback at all, i got couple builds in mind but this one is first i actualy made so far)

    1st. Fun and a change of pace from tring
    2st. Ranger plife and pew pew
    3nd. Epic viable build
    4rd. 10 k stars + aa
    5th. evasion + saves
    6th. Umd

    What i got so far: 3 monk fighter barb plifes, each other 1 time (only missing druid but only 4 levels til cap), and got maxed destinies (4,2,1 twists slot setup)
    What i need: 2 more rogues palies rangers fsouls and sorcs, maybe artie? still debating that one.
    I wont ask about gearing im more or less set for starting epics and got idea for end gear, need feeback on feats.
    So a ty to all who give me advice.

    First idea i had is the following one:

    Feats are all over the place would require tweaking where to put which but this is curent setup i got.

    Other ideas would be 11 ranger / 9 monk for improved evasion and 11 ranger/7monk/2 palie.

    For disclosure, I prefer the ranger heavy monkcher builds.

    First thing that jumps out at me is that you're in an interesting spot self-sufficiency-wise. 2 paladin pumps your saves, but 2 more ranger would get you CSW for a 45% increase in self-healing per one spell, not to mention an even more dramatic increase in being able to cast CMW and CSW instead of CMW and CLW in high pressure situations. I do mean that it's interesting, there's no clear answer to me.

    I do think that 11 / 6 / 3 would do you better than 11 / 7 / 2, though: fear and disease(ish) immunity is much better than (at best!) the equivalent of 15 CSW pots every 3 minutes. The extra IR complicates things a little, but still. I don't think the Improved Evasion path is worthwhile: you have good saves, and IMO the most dangerous Reflex saves are save or fail (Cometfall et al) rather than save or damage (Chain Lightning et al).

    The second thing is that Stunning Fist will do a million times more for you than Power Attack. Each can only be used for melee, but once you land SF its 50% bonus damage applies to ranged attacks just as well, while PA gives you nil for ranged.

    Especially for a ranged build, I think the OC chain really isn't worth your while. Your stats are pretty neat as is, but instead of 16 Str 13 Dex 13 Cha you could go 15 Str 14 Dex 14 Cha, put 3 level-ups into Dex, and trade the OC chain for Maximize, Combat Archery, and anything (Mobility? Quicken?), or keep your same stats and get Max/Quick/Mob, or Max/Quickdraw/Mob.

    As you note, the order is tricky. No matter how you slice it, though, you're not getting to rangey goodness until very late in your character's life anyway. This is another reason to get SF: it lets you contribute significantly from your first monk level.

    Your enhancements are quality. I can't even conceive of improvements.
