    Default my melee favored soul build

    So I am starting this build now with the plan to use this as my main and TR toon and was curious as to what everyone thought.

    Warforged 18 favored soul 1 barb 1 fighter

    Str 18
    Dex 8
    Con 16
    Int 12
    Wis 6
    Cha 12

    Feats: power attack, cleave, empower healing, great cleave, quicken, toughness, IC: slashing, maximize.

    Skills in order of importance: concentration, UMD, balance 1 in tumble at the start

    Any advice is welcome

    I'd go 2 ftr instead, more feats mostly, but barb rage also prevent from casting spells.
    Maybe drop Int by two and pump con to 18 too ? If you have an Int tome you'll be good on skills points.
    Look Solid otherwise, GL.

    The barb level nets me 2 things over another level of fighter
    10% run speed/sprint boost - just call me ricky bobby cause I like to go fast!
    And 1 more point to power attack.

    And yes I would agree with the con statement and that was my original plan but I decided to start on a mew server and thus had no tomes to start with. As I plan to TR this toon anyway I planned to farm some tomes out before then and change some things with the build if needed. I am planning to gobfor completionist with 3 lives in every class so I'll have a few runs with each class to fine tune.

    GL with the project!

    Edit: You might want to get the barb lifes out of the way while it's only 1.9 mil exp.

    WF FvS have fallen out of favor since the glory days of Soul Survivor; the heal amp penalty is, well, a killer. Otherwise, your build seems fine, given your stated goals / preferences.

    If it is just for Sprint Boost then take 1 Rgr isntead of a Barbarian. More skill points, slightly less hp. The rage might be ignored, use pots instead. The disadvantage of losing all spellcasting abilities as a melee FvS makes the whole concept of melee FvS obsolete.

    I also get 10% static run speed, situational rages, and 1 point of power attack over a ranger level.

    Also plan to use rage pots as well, and since rage and rage pots stack I can get more bang for my buck.
