    Default The Ghostly Dodger - 8/6/6 Fighter/Ranger/Monk

    Build notes for myself:

    Halfling 36-point 8/6/6 Fighter/Ranger/Monk

    Self-healing with dragonmarks, evasion, high Reflex save, high Dodge, centered with rapiers, incorporeal, decent Stunning.

    Went Halfling for the healing dragonmarks... Half-elf or human is probably a stronger choice, but this character has been my main for 5-6 years and being a Halfling with the healing dragonmarks is his "thing"

    Enhancements are awesome with this breakdown...

    Enhancements
    • Halfling - +1 to all saves
    • Halfling - +3 to heal, +3 dragonmarks
    • Halfling - +1 to bluff and +1 to hit sneak attacks

    • Halfling - +1 Sneak Attack Die
    • Halfling - +1 Dexterity

    • Deepwood Sniper - +1 Sneak Attack Die
    • Deepwood Sniper - +60 Positive Spell Power

    • Kensai - Haste Boost III
    • Kensai - Specialization - Light Blades - +1 to Hit/Damage
    • Kensai - Specialization - Light Blades - +1 to Hit/Damage

    • 70 Positive Spell Power for Dragonmark Heals
    • +5 to hit/damage dual-weilding light blades

    • Tactics +3
    • Strength +2
    • Dexterity +1


    This guy can stun decently if he twists in Legendary Tactics and uses a +10 stunning ring... Even as a hobbit, his STR is solid thanks to Sun Stance, Ram's Might, Primal Scream, etc.

    30% Dodge is achievable with an 8% dodge item (Balizarde or the Dun robar Stunning Ring above) and 3% from Unearthly Reactions twist (which also gives +6 Reflex save)

    Centered in Sun Stance, he can keep up incorporeal indefinitely (25% miss chance), along with Dodge (30% miss chance), and displacement clickables (or even twist in the Shadowdancer Improved Invisibility for more Displacements)

    With Fury as his main ED, he gets Sense Weakness and Primal Scream and Adrenaline which he can use with melee or manyshot...

    Self-healing from Fast Healing (when in Fury ED) and Dragonmarks and Silver Flame potions. Even get the Fists of Light monk move for constant low level healing when fighting mobs.

    DPS is solid using Balizarde and a Radiance weapon (or Greater Bane weapon). Ton of sneak attack damage, overwhelming critical (+1 crit multipler on 19-20), Kensai +1 crit range enhancement. Stunning works great on EH, decent on most EEs (I need more fighter past lives, and may take the +2 tactics epic feat). Can go Earth Stance for more crit multiplier if moar DPS is the goal for a particular fight. Has manyshot for ranged DPS goodness.

    LD is also a good choice for main ED, giving another +1 crit multipler on 19-20. Twist in Primal Scream and Sense Weakness in that case.

    Note this build has plenty of feats, enough for Master of Forms, and the Paladin Past Live feat and even Extend to double my short 6-min Ram's Might and 2:20 minute Paladin PL feat. Could replace those if one wanted.

    Still thinking about the last epic feat and the 2 destiny feats.

    Items of course will have to be mostly redone. Should be able to fit in a +10 STR item somewhere.



    Past Lives:
    • Ranger (+2 to element resistances, +2 bow damage)
    • Paladin (5% healing amp)
    • Fighter (+1 attack, +1 to tactics DCs)


    Stats:
    • Strength - 16 (+5 tome, +8 item, +2 Insight, +1 exceptional, +3 Sun Stance, +7 level ups, +2 enhancements +2 Ram's Might, +5 Primal, +2 Ship, +2 Yugo pot) = 55
    • Dexterity - 16 (+5 tome, +8 item, +2 Insight, +1 exceptional, +1 enhancement, +2 ship) = 34
    • Constitution -15 (+5 tome, +8 item, +2 Insight, +1 exceptional, +2 ship) = 33
    • Intelligence -13 (+4 tome, +1 exceptional) = 18
    • Wisdom - 8 (+5 tome, +7 item, +1 exceptional, -2 Sun Stance) = 19
    • Charisma - 9 (+5 tome, +8 item, +2 Insight, +1 exceptional) = 25


    Feats (Free):
    • Bow Strength
    • Rapid Shot
    • Manyshot
    • TWF
    • ITWF


    Level progression and chosen Feats:
    • 1 Ranger - Least Dragonmark of Healing
    • 2 Monk - Dodge
    • 3 Monk - Past Life Paladin, Mobility
    • 4 Ranger
    • 5 Fighter - Weapon Focus: Pierce
    • 6 Ranger - Stunning Blow

    • 14 Monk

    • 19 Fighter
    • 20 Fighter - Greater Weapon Focus: Pierce
    • 21 Epic - Overwhelming Critical
    • 24 Epic - Master of Forms


    Skills below, I'm going to change... I was trying to fit in Move Silently, so I could still sneak with Invisiblity, but I may just give up on that. We'll see... Main skills to max out as much as possible are Heal, UMD, Concentration, Intimidate, Spot, and Search.

    I just built something very similar to this last night. Im thinking 8 fighter 6 monk 6 ranger is going to be one of the new FOTM builds this year as far as level split is concerned. Theres a decent amount of low hanging fruit in those class trees.
    Advocating repeated nerfs in the name of "balancing the game" then complaining about how DDO is moving away from D&D, is a direct contradiction in logic - D&D 3.5 (what DDO is based on) is not a balanced game. We can either have a balanced clone MMO with homogenized classes, or we can have a D&D game. We cant have both.
