    Hey everybody, does anyone have any recommendations on where to take this build from here.
    I tried doing something with the free LR but it got screwed up due to order in which I was forced to take the classes.
    The build ended up sort of gimped, but it's not too terrible.

    I have enough exp to level up, and I was wondering which direction I should take this build for it to be more efficient.
    Any help would be appreciated.

    Note:
    I raised strength every level, and I have a +2 charisma tome.

    With the new warpriest enhancements that is now a really good base split.

    You have three rerally of options these being:

    Pushing to 12Monk/6cleric/2fighter centred with wraps.

    Looking at being centred with longswords so final levels being 8Fighter (kensai Teir 5 for one with the blade) 7monk (up to Tier III Ninja for Poison exploits) and your existing 5 Levels of cleric (Up to Tier IV of warpriest for Amelioratring strikes and Righteous weapons for longswords) get a couple of Oathblades from Eveningstar com turn ins and Kick Butt.
    Could use shortswords whilst levelling, get a couple of envenomed blades for lvl 16 and beyond.

    Push out to 11 Cleric for Heal and Blade Barrier, maybe use WSS to get centred with Longswords. (if you have enough feats)

    Personally I like the second one!

    Note that some feat swaps might be neccessary, for my suggestions.

    I like the second option as well.
    The problem is that I had to take a level because I couldn't bank anymore exp, so I won't be able to use the 8 fighter/7 monk/5 cleric split.
    But since I don't plan to go too far past 20, that won't effect me much.
    How would longsword damage compare to handwraps?

    Thanks for your help

    EDIT:
    I could use the free LR to reset my feats for using longswords.
    Would switching to a dex build be good as well to utilize both ninja training enhancements for dex to hit and damage.

    EDIT 2: It would look something like this.

    Yeah I like the split 9 monk with Improved Evasion is solid.

    Personally Im not sure about heading down the dex road, due to picking up Divine Might from the Warpriest tree, which allows you to add your Cha mod to your str score.

    I just found out that you don't have to buy a druidic heart of wood :P
    That means that I will now have a need to get oathblades to make farming tokens a bit easier.
    Do you have to have the Druid's Deep pack to get the commendations?

    On a warpriest with dual oathblades counting as a Deity Weapon and still making use of a Dance of Flowers...
    Massive increase in threat range, huge increase in die damage, less attack speed and offhand damage, but more offhand options.

    If not speccing for a good stunning blow and looking for other options Longswords are definately viable, especially without pushing your monk levels to a respectable enough lvl for the die increases.

    Once upon a time I would have fully agreed with you, but I don't think it's necessarily the case any longer.

    I'll put it this way:
    • If you're going the ftr 8 / One w/Blade route, there are much better 1H options than longswords. Yeah, Oathblades are nice for ML:20 weapons you can farm pretty easy; but DDO doesn't end at 20 and there are much better weapons to build towards.
    • If you're going the Ninja route, I'd rather save two feats & use short swords instead: Star of Day to start, work towards dual Celestias.
    • If you're going WIS-based, I'd rather use handwraps for faster atk speed+Stunning Fist.
    • Warpriest: IIUC, Smite Foe & Ameliorating Strike work with any weapon, not just your deity weapon. [If I'm wrong, WP is even worse than I think.] Righteous+Wrathful weapons is deity-weapons-only, but T5 Warpriest seems weak to me compared to other T5 PrEs, so I don't foresee building towards it.


    People are free to do what they want, ofc; but I still don't think WSS builds are worth it. The Solar Phoenix's day is loooong gone.

    I probably should have specified that I'm not vip and the only packs I have are Deleras, Red Fens, Sands of Menechtarun, Attack on Stormreach, and Gianthold.
    That probably limits the amount of epic level weaponry I can get, so I don't know what to get for epic levels.

    Regarding longsword damage, I noticed around a 30% or so increase in dps.
    Furthermore, there is more you can do due to having different weapons in primary and offhand.
    The only issue is that there aren't many named longswords to use so my options are limited to what I can craft.
    I'll probably make myself a +3 bodyfeeder longsword of lesser vampirism for offhand because I noticed that I lost a lot of survivability due to not using my vampiric stonedust handwraps. :P
    As for primary I'm thinking of making a +4 Holy longsword of lesser vampirism.
    I just need to level my arcane crafting a bit.

    Tier 5 warpriest may be terrible, but I messed this build up so I don't really have many choices.
    I'm thinking of tring into a Juggernaut for my 2nd life. (Or Phantom Lancer if I find it interesting)
    Currently at level 17, so it'll take me around a week to get to 20 since I only do around 4-10 quests a day.
