    Default fighter build help

    Hi everyone, this is my first fighter and i could use some advise.

    Im looking to go h-orc(dwarf lost coin toss) that being said i want to run pure or mostly pure 14/6 is as heavy as i want to go wanting a ppr/double strike build.
    Looking to be a DPS with mitigation (TANKING) from prr, need to do decent damage and be able to reduce some incoming damage. doing a 32 point. thinking 20 s 10 d 16 c 8 i 6 chr.
    im going to be playing in static, only rule that will affect build is the no hand me downs therefore no great gear and no extra plat.

    I know little about fighter ench and gear. if something else will work better pls let me know. not into full monk might splash but with no raid/hand downs would be tougher, as heavy armor is cheap

    sounds like you want a stalwart. make sure you check feat prerequisites on wiki. make sure you max out fighter haste as soon as each tier becomes available and get as many as you can. I actually prefer leveling as kensai as things die very quickly. but stalwart does give some great defensive stuff as well as a boatload of hp

    Default ahh

    thx would of missed the haste. I will look into the kensai, would that work for a 6 pally defender I and kensai II or would that be a bad mix (or is the 3rd tier that good? thf and switch to shield for minimal tank.

    Pretty standard S&B build, IMHO. Since it's a TR, to downgrade to 32 pts I would drop STR to 19 and bump DEX to 12.

    The main advantages to HOs for tanking are their DPS bonuses (+4 STR, +3 Power Atk, +4 dmg w/2H weapons) and threat amp (Brute Fighting); main drawback is no racial heal amp and the CHA & INT penalties hurt their Intim & skill pts, respectively.

    If you wanna be a tank then dwarfs definitely your bag with that stand like stone stuff giving you a great boost to prr for short durations. (Think its 12 seconds?) and the dwarf fortress giving +7% weapon dmg while holding a shield and wearing full plate.

    Then theirs the added 4% hp gained on top of all that hp. The lil guys just built for being that fat meaty lil ball of iron.

    Monk opens up some possibilities to with the kensai tree having the centered weapon. But im not sure if you can wear armor and be centered. Anyone know? I know you can get a hellofa lot of dodge though.

    Monks have the same centering requirements as always: i.e., no armor or shields, light encumbrance, ki weapons only. It's just that w/One with the Blade, your Kensei focus melee weapons now count as well, which as you say opens up a lot of monk / Kensei options.
