    Question FvS Dwarf or Half-Orc build

    Greetings all,

    I have been working through some past lives. And I am interested in trying some different builds. I was thinking of trying a half-orc build wielding THW. I got a stock of falchions I was interested in using. Yea yea I know about Warforged and such but you won't see me ever building one.

    Either that or a dwarf build, maybe a dwarf tank build. Or something. Anyone have some links or ideas of what and were to start.

    I am currently sitting on 3 wizzy, 1 cleric, 2 sorc, and 1 Fvs past lives.

    Default Dwarf

    I am currently runnin a dwarf melee fvs. I wield a greataxe, and can melee pretty well. After the update my healing and sp took a hit, but i got a.boost to melee damage. Currently fvs 17/fighter 1. Going to finish out with fvs levels. Only fighter enhancements i took were from kenasai to hit the bottom tier axe damage enhancement. Most of my points are in the protection line. Also took all the dwarf axe damage enhancements as well as all the dwarf hp enhancements.

    I have a half orc fvs. although, admittedly will only have16 fvs levels. I went with 16 fvs 2 pally 2 monk. great dps. great self heals. good saves. evasion. Just no casting as I dumped wisdom. just something to keep in mind

    So you pretty much a melee only toon?
    When you take the various pally and monk lives?
    If you aren't casting what is the point in going FvS rather then full Pally?

    Up until a few weeks ago a FVS w/ DP was a bajillion times better than a paladin. Paladins got a big boost in the last update. I dare say his character was leveled BEFORE the update...

    sorry I guess that came out wrong. I still cast DP and then jump in and melee. I dont, nor will I have the dc's for blade Barrier. and the difference between my fvs and a pally is I can still stand back and heal a party without any issues. I can be 2nd raid healer. obviously I wont be solo healing much without all of the masses but I will do better then what a pally could.
    and you are right, it was created before the enhancement change.
