    Default New U19 Builds for Characters

    I just wanted to put together a gathering place to compile all the viable builds created sense the Enhancement Pass. Something that all the players of DDO can look at for great ideas and concepts.

    Feel free to respond with thoughtful builds that are viable in the current game. You can either PM me or respond to this post if you have a build that you think players would like.

    I will probably not add "theory" builds or builds "just to get a past life". I'm looking for builds that players can play and enjoy and that are well thought out or proven.

    Default

    Something from the devs. Some look good. Some not so. However I think there are some good inside info in all of them.

    Default Some build ideas from the Kobolds
    This is some Ideas one of the testers came up with. This is just an example of some things to play around with when this goes live next week. I'm not going to post the actual builds, what fun is that.

    Barbificier (Barbarian / Arti)
    Concept: This build focuses around the concept of using the Dwarf enhancement Throw Your Weight Around and Glancing Blow enhancement/feats. Main focus should be on Constitution. Eventually with Throw your Weight around you can use your Con for damage with Dwarven Waraxes. Next focus should be increasing your Glancing Blow damage/proc change. Feats such as Two-Handed Fighting, and enhancement that increase this should be prioritized. Try and find sources of Con and damage/attack speed increasing buffs (at the end of this build you will be using Tenser’s Transformation, Rage, and Attack Speed Action Boost).
    Class Distribution: 12 Artificer, 8 Barbarian (MUST BE DWARF); Build becomes feasible around level 5/6
    Enhancement/Item Focus: Dwarven Waraxe, Constitution Items, Health/Off Tank

    Ice King
    Concept: ALL THE ICE DOTS (note, this build will be stomped if you are fighting creatures with cold invulnerability). This build mostly focuses around Creeping Cold and Greater Creeping Cold. Focus on taking any Cold/Universal Spellpower, and Cold/Universal Spell Crit. Since druid cold dots don’t have saves you only need to give yourself enough Wisdom to cast level 9 spells (19 Wisdom). Since this number can easily be obtained I put everything into Con (excess build points are up to you). Eventually you are going to become a DoT caster who can take a beating (I gained Heavy Armor Proficiency and threw a suit of Dragon Armor on myself). Note that the 3 Sorcerer is to give you a little extra Water Savant Cold power via their enhancement tree.
    Class Distribution: 17 Druid, 3 Sorcerer; Build becomes feasible around level 5/6
    Enhancement/Item Focus: Empower/Max Metamagics, Crit chance feats/items (mental toughness line), Toughness line (including Epic Toughness), Cold Spellpower. Tank items/enhancements/feats (as much as you want).

    Quarterstaff Rog / Monk
    Concept: This build is all about the Quarterstaff. With the new enhancement system you are able to stack many damage boosting enhancements. Ultimately when you are not beating your enemies to death with a big stick you are tripping them to do bonus damage, sneak attack them to some extent, or dodging/evading enemies. Other things of interest with this build include: Staff Tripping using Dex for DC, and Vaulting (yep it’s a thing), enhancement/stances that increase your attack speed (Monk Stance Line). A pretty straight forward build.
    Class Distribution: 12 Rogue, 8 Monk (any Dex giving Race); Build becomes feasible right away (though 2 levels to gain 1 rogue and 1 monk)
    Enhancement/Item Focus: All the Dex, Best Quarterstaffs you can get. Drip DC increasing.

    Crossbow Arti / Rog
    Concept: Similar to the Quarterstaff build, but with Crossbows. Ultimately there are 2 ways you can go about making this build. You can go about making an Int based crossbow user (rogue mechanic at core enhancement at level 6) which will help with Artificer spellcasting, a larger repertoire of trained skills (jack of all trades), and potential assassination bonuses. Dex based crossbow users follow more closely the Dex based ranged feat line and only require 4 rogue (to get the crossbow damage bonus line). Higher Dex will grant you things you’d expect (both build have Evasion; and stealth gameplay becomes easier). Ultimately the choice is yours.
    Class Distribution: At least 6 Rogue, and 12 Artificer (last 2 levels are personal preference). I found that Drow works well with this build (and the new Morning lord if you wish to go that route); INT Build becomes feasible at level 7, and DEX Build becomes feasible right away (though 2 levels are required to gain 1 rogue and 1 artificer)
    Enhancement/Item Focus: An awesome Crossbow, all the Dex or Int (see above), crossbow/ranged feats. General skill based gear to give you utility (open locks, disable device, etc.)

    Vorpal Wolf
    Concept: Monk Druid hybrid that focus on Vorpal attacks and high critical damage. The Epic Feat Vorpal Strikes can be triggered while in animal form. Get enough Wis to take Vorpal Strikes and put everything else into damage and crit damage. There are several monk abilities that work in animal form; feel free to experiment. Putting enhancement points into Ninja Spy and Nature’s Warrior will allow for some interesting DPS.
    Class Distribution: 12 Monk, 8 Druid
    Thinks to take: [Monk] of Forms line (note that monk line can be taken at levels 6/12/18 with 1 level in monk), Overwhelming Critical, Vorpal Strikes, Improved Critical Bludgeoning
    Things you need: 23 Strength, 23 Wisdom, Great Cleave line, Winter Wolf Form

    More from the Devs

    Here's a few more from the Kobold pit.

    Sunlord
    Concept: Use the power of Light to turn your opponents to dust! This build involves using Light base spells (many of them Spell Like Abilities) with high crit chances to burst enemies. This build focuses on mixing levels with Cleric Divine Disciple enhancements with Angel of Vengance enhancements. The Light spellpower and Light Critical enhancement stack together. Divine Disciple grants the player some powerful SLA (and access to the Sun Bolt spell).
    Class Distribution: 14 Favored Soul, 6 Cleric (best used with Morning Lord; +30 Light Spellpower); becomes feasible right away
    Enhancement/Item Focus: Light Spellpower, Light Spell Critical, Healing (if you off heal), durability, Damage Caster Metamagics.

    Zombie Monk!!!
    Concept: This is more of a fun build than anything. With this build player can get their monk melee damage dice easily over 7d8. PLEASE NOTE: that after investigation this build doesn’t provide the best DPS (still viable though). Essentially the Pale Master Zombie form adds +1[W] to unarmed attacks; this stacks with monk damage dice. This form also grants +100% fortification, +2 Strength, +2 Con, DR 5/Slashing, but makes you immune to positive energy damage and heal with negative energy. You may find a series of Melee Attacks to cycle through to utilize the high dice damage.
    Class Distribution: 17 Monk, 3 Wizard (can be used by any race)
    Enhancement/Item Focus: Anything that increases unarmed monk damage, Strength gear, any enhancement or epic destiny melee attack that adds to damage. Durability.


    Elf Bow Kensei
    Concept: This build is about making a Kensei Longbow user, taking some Arcane Archer enhancements, and then using your Dex for damage. This build is pretty straight forward, grab all the ranged feats, grab an awesome bow, and let it rip. Since you must dump points into the Elf Racial Tree to activate this you will have to decide whether to go partially up the Arcane Archer tree, or partially up the Kensei tree (both have their strengths and weaknesses).
    Class Distribution: 20 Fighter, MUST BE ELF; feasible at level 6.
    Enhancement/Item Focus: All the Dex, All the archery/ranged feats, all the things that add damage to longbow attacks.

    Tempest Vampire
    Concept: This is kind of an interesting build. This build focuses on advancing through the Tempest tree, trying to get your off-hand, double strike, off-hand double strike as high as you can. Then become a vampire and gain health every time you land a hit. Throw in an attack speed haste boost and you can heal pretty fast
    Class Distribution: 14 Ranger, 6 Wizard; feasible at level 12
    Enhancement/Item Focus: Two-Handed fighting feats/enhancements (though most are granted via ranger). Dex for damage (via the tempest tree). Con and health items/enhancements.

    Bear-dar-Kai
    Concept: AOE Bear form Shadar-Kai. This build focuses on grouping enemies together and destroying them with an arsenal of aoe melee attacks. Shadar Kai chain attack scales off of character level so you can take any combination of classes. Take Cleave, Great Cleave, Whirlwind, and then eventually head up the Legendary Dreadnought tree to gain damage and Lay Waste (base dire bear damage dice is 1d12). Pretty much just focus damage while in bear form.
    Class Distribution: 2 Rogue, 8 Druid, 10 Fighter, atleast 23 Strength by level 21; Feasible at level lower levels (as quickly as you can start getting your aoe attacks)
    Enhancement/Item Focus: Whirlwind attack, Overwhelming Critical, Strength/damage gear, survivability, crit/seeker, Legendary Dreadnought tree OR Fury of the Wild for Adrenaline overload

    Regen Monk
    Concept: This build uses the Cleric Positive Energy Aura while in a monk build to continuously heal themselves. A going up the Shintao tree and taking the core enhancements both increases your positive spellpower and Healing Amplification. Going human, epic destiny, and various items will further improve your positive spellpower and healing amp. As far as DPS or Tank build goes it’s up to the player. You could go tank, or theoretically go dps.
    Class Distribution: 14 Monk, 6 Cleric (Human is the best given Improved Recovery); Feasible at level 12
    Enhancement/Item Focus: Healing Amp, Positive Spellpower, Grandmaster line, durability tank or DPS or both; anything else you want for your monk

    No thanks. There is too much traffic there and it will just get in the way. This is a nice fit right where it is. Not a lot of posts in the Race Forums. After all this is a Gathering of U19 builds, not specifically Race or Class builds.

    I've rolled up a FvS/CLR 12/3 iconic Sun Elf, and just using the starter gear I'm at 199 Light, 134 Fire, and 154 positive SP before applying max and empower. With the Angel of Vengeance enhancement Scourge, my light SP is actually around 215ish while in combat and a critical chance of 30% (5% magic training, 1% mental toughness, 1% improved mental toughness, 15% starter armor, 8% FVS smite enhancements).


    After running one quest (A Lesson in Deception) to get the Sages Sash (archmagi belt ML 15), I'm sitting at 1972 SPs at level 15, with the nimbus, searing, and sunburst SLAs.

    It sounds like a lot of people are really nailing it with the light damage, especially against undead. Keep us posted and give us some details as you level up.
