okay so some background information: all my lives have been melee and I'm looking to make a melee favored soul as well. What I have at my disposal is past lives: Barb x3, fighter x3, monk x3, rogue x3, paladin x3. All stats are +4 and 36pt build obv. Plenty of dps/hp/rogue gear to patch up potential sacrifices in base HP or search/disable
The build I am thinking of (still a rough gem) is the following:
Half-elf 16 fvs/2 paladin/2 rogue.
Paladin mostly for the cha based saves, rogue for evasion and disable device
Half-elf mostly for fighter dellitante to get myself proficiency with my regular weapons, but the enhancement line will also give access to 20% healing amp, immunity to sleep etc. I'm pretty set on using this race.
Feats: first getting power attack + cleave (lv 3) + great cleave (prolly lv 9), the other enhancements might need to be used for empower or quicken, if I have room I'll take stunning blow.
All of this should give me a proper dps toon with proper saves and self heals + most traps doable.
As for stats I could use feedback. I don't know how important wisdom is for dc's because I'm not planning to be much of an offensive caster (blade barrier perhaps at level 16). I was thinking something along these lines:
if wisdom isn't really necesary if im planning to use close to zero offensive spells I could do it like this:
17 str < 18 on second ability stat choice
12 int < 1 more skill point per level and +1 search/disable
17 cha < 18 on first ability stat choice
The charisma modifier gives me plenty of saves so I don't really need dexterity, also I can take the force of personality feat to double my charisma modifier on will saves (IE if modifier is +10 I'll get +20 will save with that feat and 2 paladin levels)
-not sure if I have enough skill points per level to keep up search/disable, the only other skill I really want to level is Jump up to 40 though and that seems to be a class skill. Concentration might be useful too for this life.
-not sure if I need wisdom for anything besides offensive spells on a fvs
