Hi all, I just came back to the game after a couple years, and a lot is different. I'm trying to figure out where to go with a character I made a while back. The character was supposed to be an Exploiter Ranger, which was 18/1/1 Rgr/Rog/Mnk, and supposedly pretty broken. After a bit of research, I have determined that this kind of build got nerfed into the ground. Anyway, the version I have is a Human, Level 13 Ranger/1 Rogue, Dual wielding Khopesh. From what I can tell, this is basically gimped nowadays. His DPS is pretty mediocre. The worst part, by far, is his survivability. He has approximately 40 AC with Barkskin and some half decent armor(I assume it's half decent), and 210 HP His rogue skills are subpar as well. I got invited on a guest pass to some quest in Sands of Menechtarun with a Djinn and a Gnoll boss at the end on elite, and I couldn't even spot the traps, let alone disarm them. I died 10 times. 10. The rewards from the quest weren't enough to even repair all of my broken stuff. I don't want this to happen anymore, so here I am.
Basically, what I want to know is:
1) How gimped is this character?
2) Is there any way to fix it? It doesn't have to be the same sort of character, I just don't want my only decently leveled character to go to waste.
3) What should I do to make this character viable enough to reach level 20 and TR him into something more modern?
This is him: http://ddocrafting.info/myddo/thelanis/Astaron/
I have access to a +2 STR tome from some Genie that I gave cake to, and a Feat Respec, according to some popup when I logged in.
If any more detail is needed, I will be happy to provide it.
Edit: I hope this is the right place to post this. I would post it in Character Building, but they seem more concerned with 36 pt TR's and stuff, and I'm not that advanced yet. Also, I can't post there. Or I can. I'm not sure. I'm not VIP, but I am Premium.
Edit 2: The gear on is backup gear, all my first string gear is broken because of those 10 deaths. I was advised to put my feats up here as well. DDO is down right now, but as best I can remember, my feats included:
Exotic Weapon Proficiency
Favored Enemy- Undead
Favored Enemy-Giant(I have Gianthold Tor)
