    Default Worst Builds/build ideas?

    Got curious, and decided to ask, 'What are the worst builds you've seen/come up with?'

    I'm not talking about Horc Wizards, or even about WF arcanes with Improved Fortification (though a WF barb with that feat would probably qualify).

    I'm also not talking about niche builds that actually do something well. I'm talking about those builds where you see them, go 'WHAT?!' and when you get an answer, your jaw hits the floor at the bad.

    Well, I once ran with a warforged that had the Improved Fortification feat. That's a trump card.
    The absurd forum change has forced 'SealedInSong' to become 'TuskCouncil' temporarily.

    Thanks for shaking up the forums until they're unreadable and unusable instead of fixing all the bugs and releasing a coherent enhancement alpha!

    Pretty much any class where you follow a path...

    It's not the build.. it's me.. *gets slapped in the face by character*

    anyway

    Reading up on the heavy metal dungeon god, it reminded me of my first attempt to awesome multi-classing. The 'reasoning' behind it doesn't sound all too unfamiliar.
    So, I made the classic mistake of combining cleric and rogue once, to my newbie mind it sounded genius, healing and trap disabling. It is possible ofcourse, but not how I did it. Years later the stones of xp came and I added some fighter levels for 'da dee-pee-es'.
    So it ended up being a lvl 8 cleric, 4 rogue, 4 fighter, with the intention of making it a 8/6/6 radiantservant/kensai/acrobat q-staff expert. Elf. Those thaumaturgy staffs could be nice hitting sticks too! right? No..
    Needless to say, it is parked. On another server.

    I had an idea of a 12fvs/6mnk/2rng monkcher elf for a TR life since there was some much raving about monkchers.
    I made it on lammania, admittedly, somewhat haphazardly.
    It should've worked. Science said so. But it didn't.

    I saw a Wizard/Paladin/Rogue on the thelanis lfm other day. It remind me that my guildies and I usually named the bad players/builds with funny names when we add them to our friendlist. We usually uses names like Ben10 (because of the 10% death penalty); Patrick Star (well, I don't need to explain this one) and many other I can't remember right now.

    Depending on the lvl split wiz/pal/rogue can be good.
    12wiz/2pal/6rogue should kick ass and take names.
    Wraith form, selfhealing, selfbuffing, excellent saves, evasion and nice bunch of sneak damage and trapping skills.
    Sure there are better versions and feats would be tight but still a solid build if you know how to play and gear it.

    Classifying Bad Builds really comes down to the following requirement:

    Anyone that plays them could not make them work...

    Builds considered bad ideas at one time, suddenly have turned around to be FOTM builds because of a "change" in the game. Be it a change with feats, or additional power through enhancements.

    There are also builds that the player base at large commonly shy away from because of how difficult it would be to build them (IE requiring 3+ primary stats, not enough feats or need specific hard to get gear)

    Sorc for faster cooldowns, wis for archmagi MM sla, bard for fascinate for unparallelled ability to cc. Twist extra songs into shiradi and boom, you have a FOTM build that is absolutely useless outside of Shiradi. And not at all useful when in shiradi for that matter either.

    The worst build I ever tried was a pal2 sorc 18 human.
    I had such Trouble pugging, and got so much abuse that I stopped playing him about L7...
    But that was back then.

    The other day I was in a group with a 6 fighter/6 paladin/6 wizard. He seemed like a very experienced player with a lot of great gear, so he was doing okay, but I think with a less experienced player that build would be tough.
    All on Thelanis: Archenpaul Sixblade, Archernicus Thornwood, Gregorovic Redcloak, Hermanius Brightblade, Jaklomeo Evermug, Jonathraxius Kane, and Praetoreus Silvershield.
