    Default Feats for Melee FvS

    I decided to try melee FvS, any input on what feat I should take?

    What I have in mind is:
    1. THF fighting line
    2. Power Attack
    3. Quicken
    4. Improved Critical Slashing Weapon
    5. Empower Heal


    Is this good enough? Prolly going to do 18 FvS/2 Pally splash <Iconic Heroes> for the test.

    THF is less than optimal. I'd trade that for Cleave/GC, since you wont have many active melee abilities and that grants better AOE than +40% Glancing Blows do, and then Maximize for your SLAs.

    Drop THF, pick up cleaves and a spare feat imo.

    I went 18fvs 2 monk for warpriest because of not wanting to do a wf for the 2h weapon favored weapon, and wanting to be centered.

    On a human

    power attack
    cleave
    weapon focus slashing weapons
    Whirling steel strike
    two weapon fighting
    empower healing spell
    quicken spell
    improved two weapon fighting
    improved critical slashing weapons
    greater two weapon fighting
    great cleave
    overwhelming critical
    perfect two weapon fighting
    adept of forms
    epic destiny spell power positive

    Since they're planning on going to level 30 sometime next year at that point I'd pick up master of forms at 30. Everyone talks bad about longswords but with picking up a dance with flowers as a twist I find the dps to be not top of the line but at least competitive.

    Agreed. THF feats are not worth it.
    Get cleave, great cleave, then overwhelming critical(need base 23 str for the latter).
    I have a fvs 18 fighter 2 melee soul and he is a blast to play. Fighter gave me 2 feats free, and i was still able to take needed feats to be a great raid healer too. This is needed imo because a fvs who joins a raid (or group for that matter) will usually be expected to heal if needed.

    I'd take Maximize instead of Empower Heal for an extra on mass cures. And I agree that THF is a waste of feat.

    Max does nothing for mass heal though and even though that's the only level 9 an 18 fvs gets it's probably the best choice for raid healing on a melee fvs imo.
