I'm looking to create something rather particular, and here's my order of priorities:
1) Centered with a Two-Handed Weapon, specifically axes (So "One with the blade")
2) Heavily utilize the advantages of monk (AC/immunities/Grandmaster of Flowers, eventually)
3) I am the front line for my group of six, so durability and taunt-draw in some form are desirable (thinking the Stone stances)
4) I'd like to go Light Monk for the ability to offer lots of nifty supporting abilities to my group
Ideally, I'd like to go Warforged (personal preference, but I recognize the problem it presents to Wisdom and thus AC) or Dwarf (to do the "CON is your STR" thing) - but the problem I'm having there is figuring out the minimum strength I'd need along the way if I go Dwarf. Or, if there's a better race for the plan, just throw that out instead.
Other useful notes:
+5 Supreme Tome
Dedicated Healer in my standard group
Dedicated Trapper in my standard group
Fourth Life, some Epic Destinies but not the whole kit-and-kaboodle yet.
I'd appreciate any advice/suggestions the gentlemen and ladies of this forum could offer, aside from "Non-optimal, ****, waste of time, go away." I recognize the build may not be ultra-BYOH-FOTM, but I think I could at least do something useful with it. My inclination was 15 Monk (AC, immunities, stuffs) and 5 Fighter (minimum for One With the Blade) but alternatives that work better with this plan I'm very open to hearing about.
Thanks very much in advance.
