    I don't know what if anything you could do better in terms of gear. I would consider either swapping Power Crit+WF:S for, say, Imp Sunder+Stunning Blow; or LRing into pure barb and getting rid of those two feats (I suspect extra STR & glancing blows from capstone are worth more DPS than +2 Seeker), except you've already got your dragonplate.

    That or TRing into a race which would have higher DPS w/eSOS (i.e., WF, HO, HE w/rog dilly).

    This is good advice. You probably don't want to remake your armor so stay 18/2. Get Stunning Blow and epic Toughness or Improved Sunder. As far as race, I know Dwarf is your thing...

    For equipment, I'd strongly suggest 30% amp(for healers and/or sf pots). This would take the Bracers or Gloves slot.

    Equipment I'd suggest:
    Mithral or Adamantine Cloak of the Wolf
    Idol of Fortune(EE/EH)/Giantcrafted Siberys Compass/LItany of the Dead
    Smoke HP GS necklace
    I'd slot 14prr in the helm's green slot over the +2 good luck.
    Swap the Bracers for 30% amp/superior parrying.
    Swap the 8str ring for an Avithoul ring.
    Swap the 35gfl in armor for heavy fort.>edit: Don't need fort here if you use Idol of Fortune.>edit: Can put the mdb increase(which I hear stacks with Surefooted's mobility) for your heavy armor.

    I consider ffalling while in combat very annoying, and generally is a waste of a yellow slot. After taking off the 8str ring you can put 7str here, might not be even given your current setup though. >edit: Put +1 con in the Visors, +7 resistance in the boots, and +7str in the ESOS colorless.


    With your equipment the Greater Bold Trinket is just "Shocking Blow". The Dream Visor has competence damage and the Bracers of TS has exc seeker.
