Based loosely on the old Malcontent (sorry, gone with the old forums, but it was a high-synergy 8 fighter/6 ranger/6 monk WSS build), this version takes advantage of the new enhancement system to squeeze in tempest and [strike] kensei and still have enough levels for 3rd-tier monk stances (wind/earth to switch from DPS to tank). Monk PrE is ninja, of course, for defense.
In theory, this could be any race or weapon, but I have spec'd out a dwarf both because the axes are pretty good weapons in this combination and it allows me to list a 32-point build with light tome investment.[/strike]
Bear in mind, of course, that this could be entirely wrong by the time the enhancement pass actually comes out
Edit: Of course, everything is different, so I've changed back to a WSS elf.
Tier 5 ninja is far and away the best PrE; +100% doublestrike for 6 seconds every 30 seconds, crippling strike (-2 STR on sneak attack, grab unbalancing strike on the way up)c, and touch of death. In this instance, it also allows us to use DEX for to-hit and damage with longswords, shortswords, kamas, and at least 2 staves. Shintao will give 10% offhand proc with minimal investment, leaving plenty of AP for displacement dragonmarks and tempest enhancements.Code:Character Plan by DDO Character Planner Version 03.16.01 DDO Character Planner Home Page Level 20 Lawful Good Elf Female (2 Fighter \ 12 Monk \ 6 Ranger) Hit Points: 248 Spell Points: 95 BAB: 17\17\22\27\27 Fortitude: 17 Reflex: 19 Will: 13 Starting Feat/Enhancement Abilities Base Stats Modified Stats (32 Point) (Level 1) (Level 20) Strength 14 14 Dexterity 18 23 Constitution 12 12 Intelligence 8 8 Wisdom 16 16 Charisma 8 8 Starting Feat/Enhancement Base Skills Modified Skills Skills (Level 1) (Level 20) Balance 4 6 Bluff -1 -1 Concentration 1 1 Diplomacy -1 -1 Disable Device n/a n/a Haggle -1 -1 Heal 3 3 Hide 4 8 Intimidate -1 -1 Jump 2 2 Listen 3 5 Move Silently 4 6 Open Lock n/a n/a Perform n/a n/a Repair -1 -1 Search -1 1 Spot 3 5 Swim 2 2 Tumble n/a n/a Use Magic Device n/a n/a Level 1 (Ranger) Feat: (Favored Enemy) Favored Enemy: Evil Outsider Feat: (Selected) Weapon Focus: Slashing Weapons Level 2 (Monk) Feat: (Monk Bonus) Whirling Steel Strike Level 3 (Ranger) Feat: (Selected) Least Dragonmark of Shadow Level 4 (Monk) Feat: (Monk Bonus) Power Attack Level 5 (Ranger) Level 6 (Monk) Feat: (Selected) Cleave Feat: (Monk Path) Path of Harmonious Balance: Fists of Light Level 7 (Ranger) Level 8 (Monk) Level 9 (Ranger) Feat: (Favored Enemy) Favored Enemy: Aberration Feat: (Selected) Improved Critical: Slashing Weapons Level 10 (Monk) Level 11 (Monk) Feat: (Monk Bonus) Dodge Level 12 (Monk) Feat: (Selected) Great Cleave Level 13 (Monk) Level 14 (Monk) Level 15 (Monk) Feat: (Selected) Toughness Level 16 (Monk) Level 17 (Monk) Level 18 (Ranger) Feat: (Selected) Grandmaster of Forms Level 19 (Fighter) Feat: (Fighter Bonus) Greater Two Weapon Fighting Level 20 (Fighter) Feat: (Fighter Bonus) Mobility
