So, I been wanting to make a character utilizing shield bash and being more damage/off tank.
A lot from what I have seen is its hard to pull off unless youre a human or dwarf.
I was thinking maybe a fighter/wizard for the Eldritch Knight prestige and its shield bash enhancement.
I just don't know what to do class wise to make this work out with all the feats necessary. You need shield bash, improved shield bash, shield mastery, improved shield mastery, all the weapon focus bludgeoning and etc to boost the damage of shields. Either take bastard sword prof, kopesh, or be a dwarf for dwarven axes.
I mainly am searching for tips and insight into how to pull this off without completely gimping myself. I do mainly play with a group of 2-4 friends, if that information does help too.
Skills, enhancements, feats, cross class (do I go pure fighter, or what would I need to do to make sure my damage isn't gimped?), and whatever insight you kind folks can offer. I've looked at some builds, but things aren't clear enough for me.
I really like the idea of this character: having good ac, defense, and offense with a shield bash proc sounded awesome to me. In addition does the twf line work with it now, or is it still bugged?
