I have recently come back to DDO, I had to stop gaming for the summer due to job/personal life.
One build that I had really liked in concept for quite some time is an AOE powerhouse build. I had considered many permutations usually involving 12wiz/6f/2? With EK I think I can come closer yet to what I had in mind. Unfortunately (if you will) it now becomes a staff user (which I have accumulated over the years).
I have been playing around in my head with 12w/6m/2fs. There are a number of options I am considering to "optimize" this build, keeping in mind that this person would wield staffs at the least and at least experiment with EK.
Decision 1. go 12 wizard for wraith form or go to 8 to 10 wiz and go AM (mostly for Shiradi) and add more FvS?
2. do I use the Henshin Mystic capstone or EK capstone?
3. do I do something completely different?
There seems to be a lot of synergy with these combinations in the form of fire and force spellpower increases. Maybe this would be a wash though vs pure caster. ED would be either Shiradi or LD.
