Hey guys I’m so excited! I’m finally on my last life b4 starting my Master Artificer build. Just thought I would share it with you all and see what you think.
Pastlives: 3 Ranger, 3 Monk, 3 Sorc, 1 Wizard. This results in +9 damage per bolt and +4 evocation DC (BB, TD, Runearm) when the wizard past life active feat is taken.
Race: Drow, I chose drow for the higher starting int and dex, and int enhancements. Also if I can fit it in somehow without giving up too much, the poison stance will be nice too.
Str 12 (4 points for carrying cap and protection from weakening spells)
Dex 16 (minimum dex required for the 21 base dex for combat archery epic feat with his +5 tome.)
Con 12 (would like more, but I thought that 4 str outweighed the benefits of 30 HP at cap.)
Int 20 (Maxing this stat for spell DC and insightful damage all level ups will go here.)
Wis 8 (No real use for this stat outside of will save and spot, don’t know if it will work at higher levels, but the Drow SR should make up for some of this weakness.)
Cha 10 (would always love more of this stat for usefull skills like UMD, at high level I might redistribute the 4 xtra str with a LR to this stat.)
Feats: (….) signifies class feat choice.
1 Point Blank Shot (Rapid Reload)
3 Construct Essence: Mostly for attached weapons at higher lvl, but the repairs will work nice as well.
4 (Rapid shot)
6 Insightful Reflexes: Thought about toughness here, but I think I will get more mileage out of an enormous reflex save.
8 (precise shot)
9 Wizard past-life feat for +1 spell DC’s
12 Spell focus evocation, (Maximize)
15 Improved critical Ranged
18 Greater spell focus evocation
20 (Improved precise shot)
Well that’s the build, I plan on going all the way to the capstone on Battle Engineer, and enough into Drow for poison stance. Obviously if there is any points left over it will go to the caster tree.
Please let me know if I’m missing anything or if I should choose my feats in a different order. Also because I have been doing all this reincarnating I haven’t played much epic content. Could someone who is experience with epic content let me know if this build will be viable at cap?
