Hi, I really want to try the following build for the fun and uniqueness factors of it:
-Fighter 9 / Wizard 11 (OR Fighter 8 / Wizard 11 / ??? 1)
-CON and STR focused build with INT taking a backseat.
-Buff-centric spellcasting. No Selfheals, since not WF.
-Mediocre SP pool.
-Tenser's Transformation is the core goal of this build.
-32pt build, non-reincarnate.
-Most probably will use Purple Dragon Knight Iconic Hero, to skip the difficulty of lower levels this build would face.
-Will probably go Two-Handed Fighting
-Won't buy Tomes from DDO store, but will hopefully collect at least +2's for INT, STR and CON.
Now, I'm not an expert at DDO, so I have no idea if this build is actually going to be a total failure or not, which is why I'm here. Most importantly, is Tenser's Transformation useful for a battle caster, or is it in actuality a completely useless spell, and not at all worth taking 11 levels of Wizard for?
Fighter level 9 doesn't seem to be much of a necessity, so the build is technically open for a 3rd class, but I don't see any obvious choices there. Rogue would make sense, but I don't think I'm not sure if I will have the INT required for being a trapper. (However, I might be wrong? Do I 'need' a high base INT to trap well?)
Any general tips on how to go about this build would be appreciated. I don't want to be a hardcore Epic Elite farm master with this character, so it's okay if I'm not the best party member, as long as I can actually kill things properly and/or stay alive.
Thanks in advance!
