    Default Half Elf - what to do?

    So, promised a buddy I'd pace him with a character. Will run probably only in a set group, no where else, at least until my buddy decides to take break. Group is a duo, arti and sorc.

    I've got this bank toon, Vet2 Half Elf who, for some reason, has chomped +2 tomes in all stats. Currently a bard, neutral, with both the free lesser and +20 lesser reincarnates available. I'm kinda rich with bards, thinking of going some other direction - but no idea what.

    Dunno. Half Elves seemed to take a hit in the enhancement pass. I kinda wish the character were either an elf or human.

    Some things I'm thinking ...
    - Ranger splashed dagger person (assassin T5) - maybe pal dillie
    - Melee divine (scimmies) - rogue dillie
    - Maybe druid?


    Having a real time figuring it out. Half-elf just doesn't seem to fit anywhere.

    Smile Some Ideas

    I'm guessing it is a first life toon? My Main is on his 11th life never repeating a build, and i've done 2 lives since the enhancement pass...Helf hasn't really been nerfed at all. It is a bit annoying that you need to take human versatility boost in the core line, but the saves boost got a buff making it so you can't fail on a 1 while active if your save is high enough so i usually take that .

    As for your build ideas, ranger splash assassin tier 5 sounds good...just keep in mind that Assassinate DC is based off rogue levels not character levels. Cleric dill is always nice unless you plan on having the UMD to scroll yourself, in which case pally dill is the way to go .

    Melee divine with scimies and rogue dill...that could be interesting with the new warpriest line . Maybe splash some monk for extra feats (as divines are a bit feat starved for twf on their own) and you get evasion and stances . If you do take the monk i'd consider pally dill there too for the extra reflex save, but rog is great for the SA damage . er...just now noticed neutral. so scratch splashing monk...maybe 2 fighter splash?

    I cannot help with druid as i have not had time to try one of them yet, but I know as far as splits that will work well with helf. pure sorc with FvS dill or pally dill. any tukaw varient using fvs dill instead of reconstruct. If you have some repeaters lying around 6arti/12rogue/2 anything else does immense pure physical ranged dps. hopefully i've been of some help >.< good luck and just make sure to have fun.

    Yeah first life - this is a bank toon I'd be converting to playable state - a decided "second" in the arsenal.

    For the assassin - I wouldn't be aiming for assassinate, just the crit expansion of assassin + tempest.

    I've done a fighter 2 / FVS 18 before - they certainly work. Rogue dilettante that time too. So, maybe scrap that, I've already done it ;-)

    The current duo already has a wizard and an arti. I don't want to steal too much of the show - one is another guys 2nd string toon, and then a guy who doesn't play so much. So, no arti and no arcane I think. Maybe not even trapper skills.

    So ... cleric (w/ a melee bent) ... druid ... maybe a more core melee like a fighter or barb?

    20 fighter with cleric dill for self sufficiency? and you said you've done a melee divine before...but if it was prior the enhancement update, this will give you a chance to try out the warpriest pre . so it would still be new. Um...the assassin/tempest sounds fun. My last life was a halfling 11ran/7rog/2monk. I stacked SA from halfling tree, ninja spy, assassin, deepwood, and then went up the tempest tree, dual wielding GS scimi's i've had since 1st life XD. tons of fun. tensers and umd myself, full dex based. All in all its up to you. many of the builds you've mentioned sound at least fun to try.

    fvs warpriest twf with scimis. Take the rogue dil since you're stuck in helf and don't stick another point into the helf tree. Helf got nerfed bad with a crazy increase in the point cost for the dillies. Spending to upgrade them will hurt you badly in the long run. So no matter what you do make sure the dilly gets you something that you'd find useful with no upgrades.
