    Default Shader-Kai the Undead Assassin

    So the Shadar-Kai iconic is set up to be a an rogue assassin build. Not content with that I came up with a theory build while here at work I'd like some comments on.

    Shadar-Kai wizard/rogue/monk 12/5/3

    Starting ststats

    str - 8
    dex -18
    con -14
    int -18
    wis -8
    chr -6


    all level ups into intel, all enhancements into intel save Shadar-Kai . So
    So final with equipment etc.

    intel 38-40 with +3 tome.

    Dex 28 (30) with stance.

    Feats:

    twf, itwf, gtwf, ? (Still playing around with these)

    wizard 12 for wraith form and tensors as needed.

    rogue 5 to get to assassinate .

    monk 3 to take ninja spy core enhancements to use dex for attack/damage with piercing weapons (opens up short sword uses as I have a pair of envenomated blades).

    Assassinate DC should be good because of the super high intel.

    AC is useless here. Dodge, blur, displacement, and incorporeal are the mainstay of defense.

    So any thoughts?

    Interesting build. I am working on what I thought would be a 12 sorc/6 monk/2 pally but with the new enhancements that will change. I'll be watching this thread.

    Won't your assassinate dc be so low as to be useless? Or doesn't rogue lvl affect that

    its half rogue level plus intel modifier...so with I loose 7 from the rogue level loss but gain the same or more from the high intel. Plus I chose to use Shadar- Kai because there starting equipment gives a + 2 bonus to assassinate DC . I

    ever thought of using daggers? the tier 6 assassin ability knife training or whatever adds a multiplier and +1 to dagger threat range so something cheap like sacrificial dagger looking attractive its got level drain as well. Yeah also dont forget level drains lower their saves for your assasinate nice.

    my mistake it is rogue level and intel modifier....so... May have to rethink this a bit. Some testing may be required..may drop assassinate and instead go with tier 4 execute...then I could take tier 5 of pale master. Will have to test .
