    Default Melee build wanted

    Looking for a human thf build. Would like to be able to whip out a bow for manyshot as it was fun with my ranger. Was thinking of 12 barb/6 ranger/ 2 rogue or monk maybe? Doesn't have to be max dps, but would like to pull my weight. No arti on this account.

    In the wake of the Juggernaut, I've been experimenting with various "THF+MS" builds. Here's one concept:
    Code:

    Pure ftr seemed a natural choice: partly for all the feats you get, partly because the capstone boosts both ranged & melee DPS. I didn't want to backload the THF feats so far, but it was the only way I could find to squeeze in GC+MS+Kensei II by lvl 12.
