    Default Oh, God. Another Monkcher...

    I'd like to TR asap, and I'm pretty sure I'm going with a quick ranger life next. I posted this in the request a build thread, but I'd like to both get more eyes on it and have room for in-depth discussion.

    My main concern is that the build won't "mature" enough until level 20, at which point I plan to TR again anyway.

    It's always a shame when the hammer of poor design choices smashes the fun of player tactical adaptation.

    Doesn't look to bad for a past life build.
    My only suggestions would be, drop ranger levels to 11 and take 1 more Arti level for better heal scrolls if you're using them.
    This will also net you the use of 1 second level arti spell, Elemental Weapons. This is very nice, since at lower/mid levels it's almost like having a second imbue in effect.

    Also for the order in which you level I'd go something more like:
    1 Arti
    2-7 Monk
    8-9 Arti
    9-20 Ranger.

    This ensure maximizing your skill points at later levels, getting 10K stars and use of rune arms earlier enough for them to be useful.
    But then again, this leveling order is the best when making an endgame focused build. YMMV since you're just doing this for the past life.
