I am a casual player and I am wanting to build an EE capable chest blesser. My current main is a 2nd life (1 wiz past life) warforged shiradi build which is very solid in EE; however chest blessing restricts me to human or half orc.
I would love to build a self healing 2hf melee (some sort of FVS/kensai combo) but I worry about the survivability without top end gear (it's all caster stuff atm) and player skill in EE content (I do have a raiders reward box sitting in my inventory however).
The most sensible solution seems to be to TR my Shiradi as human, relevel as the same build but use the bonus feat for the dragonmark and take pale master core enhancements up to shroud of the wraith for the negative energy self healing and extra survivability from 25% incorp. How would my low charisma affect chest blessing? I could go sorcerer but lose the SLAs (and my godlike reflex save would be lower too).
Don't get me wrong, shiradi is great, but spamming magic missiles doesn't seem as fun as pounding on something with an ESoS.
All suggestions appreciated.
