    Thanks for posting it while I couldn't post properly.

    A few reasons:
    1. As a ranger with IPS, the more mobs I agro and shoot through the more DPS I do. Sometimes however you might be in an instance where another party member is doing exactly the same thing somewhere else in the dungeon and you get alert and harried. Being able to loose agro fast for a short time can be very handy.

    2. The main raid I am running at the moment is FOT. I am able to grab agro of dragons, take them to the reaver and diplo them off me. This is more important for short-manning or soloing.

    Looks like a nice solid build, in the processes of leveling it up now to 20 and further.

    Nice to see the dragonmarks on a powergamer build. I've actually been considering dropping them on my halflings (got them on two melees currently) but with Chimera's Crown and a high pos spellpower I can imagine even the CMW one gets you a fair amount of healing.

    EDIT: Btw I've seen you on Ghallanda a few times and was wondering whether the name of your toon had a meaning or whether it was a coincidence, as Sestra is Czech (and Slovak and possibly Slovenian as well) for "sister".
    Also on Croatian, Serbian, Bosnian.

    Which feat would you take if you didn't have completionist?

    Default Not WAI!?

    I was making a feat swap at level 26 to take epic toughness however I'm not sure this is WAI. I am taking Maximize Spell at 24 until I hear if the epic level feats have the same level restrictions as heroic feats.

    Does anyone know if a dev has posted about this? I can't find anything.

    AFAIK, ED feats can only be used for regular Toughness, not epic Toughness.

    Yes I was taking toughness at 26 with destiny feat then swapping my lvl 24 epic feat for epic toughness. Epic destiny feats do not seem to have a level tied to them, it all just seems to come under 1 big level (epic).

    Some other things that are similar:

    Sun elf must take first level cleric but can be swapped out later using +1LR! This is WAI.
    Epic pastlife stances working in heroic levels. This is WAI.
    Twists of fate being used in heroic levels. This is not WAI.

    So how about this one? Would be awesome if a dev could respond.

    eToughness req's Toughness & base CON 21 and you can't swap in a feat at a lower lvl than its pre-req(s); so you either have to move Toughness to an earlier level or take eToughness as your lvl 27 feat.

    It can be done, hence his question.

    Scenario: He can't take Epic Toughness at lvl 21 or 24 because he doesn't have Toughness (prereq).

    1. He takes any placeholder feat at lvl 24
    2. He take Toughness at lvl 26 as his destiny feat
    3. He talks to Fred and swaps the placeholder feat from 24 to Epic toughness

    Clear now?

    I understand what he's trying to do; but Fred isn't supposed to let you break the pre-req-feat-order rules like that.

    Of course, how it's supposed to work and how it actually works ain't always the same...

    I'm nearing 20 with this build and was looking over the feat selections. After a google search for some specifics I noticed that combat archery and improved martial arts are supposed to be bugged? https://www.ddo.com/forums/showthrea...ts-Zen-Archery. Wiki still lists it as bugged.

    Perhaps this is outdated because I know dance of flowers works properly.

    Combat Archery is now WAI, tried and tested. Improved Martial Arts I'm not to sure about and the extra damage that it gives is small and hard to notice, you could swap this feat for whatever you like. If I did not take completion feat I would take toughness and take epic toughness as lvl 24 feat.

    Is this build even possible on a 36-pt toon with only +4/+3 tomes?

    Important thing is you get your base dex(combat archery) and con(epic toughness) to 21. Take points from charisma if you need, you can also use some level up points to make this base requirement.

    Question

    I have very similar toon: the only differences are that i'm not a completionist (so i took toughness in heroic levels) and the levelling order to max skills without +5 int tome.
    I'm lv24 and works great, but you are putting doubts on Combat Archery... now I need to know if it works or not! And Dance of flowers?
    So?

    I recently tested iMA on my archer and it doesn't work. I spent a while beating up the dummy with and without the feat, and there was no noticeable difference.

    I did quite a bit of testing on IMA with zen archer and bow and my results are inconclusive! So I swapped it for Maximize spell, which is uber for my cure light and cure serious wounds clickies. With my positive spell power already over 520 (370+150) my cure serious is now hitting for on average for 360 points of damage. Highest crit with cure serious wounds so far is 814 points of damage. Cure light now hitting on average for 100 points of damage.
