Carpone's variation here doesn't need 90 str for stunning blow and charisma is completely dumped. This leaves str/con as focus stats just as anyone would even if they were new. Thus this build here is far more economical in terms of both time and resources.

    Gear swapping is gear swapping. If a player is going to build for cocoon they should probably use it and save themselves the trouble of swapping. Because like I said, excessive swapping takes the fun out of everything.
    Other than the ESOS and Litany (which neither can be bought in the store) what about his gearset is particularly hard to aquire? I mean sure the stuff is Epic Elite, but that doesn't mean a version of all EH stuff would be absolute ****y.

    If anything, just swap the sword and trinket for a cleaver and planar prowess. Voila, now both gear sets look pretty similar.

    I highly recommend wraps until you can fight while centered. That should be around level 16 or so. Early game, you own content, and your power slightly drops off as all the THF feats are spent while you are still sporting wrap I had a Green Steel axe and re did enhancements as soon as I could go centered w/ it.

    I suppose you could consider a stick build to at least take advantage of the spent THF feats while working towards Cleaver. Also, I didn't really like the Druid splash much and would look into a Cleric (War Priest) next life.

    I don't agree at all.
    Consider ESOS on a 8 kensei has a crit range of 13-20! With a x7 on a 19-20. This is what my build has. https://www.ddo.com/forums/showthrea...atsword-Kensei
    When you are doing this much damage who cares if the enemy's limb is choped off - they are dead in a few seconds anyway.
    With good defence mine is - 50% displace / 25 % incorp / 15% dodge / 75 AC and / 80-100 PRR the few attacks the limb chop mitigates don't mean nada.

    Cleaver is super overrated - it has a crit range of 20 at worse and 17-20 at best. I don't want the enemy limb chopped or cursed I just want them dead.

    Yea, Cleaver is not better than ESOS. It's just easier to get so more people have it. I have both and while Cleaver can come close sometimes, it's not better.

    The one downside of ESOS is that it is based on critical hits so if you have an enemy with high fortification you have to have some way to mitigate.

    I use giant crafted armor (or black dragonscale) -15% + shattering strike -15% + twisted grim percision -15% = -45%

    That all stacks? Good to know, i always thought same number types don't stack.
