I'm looking to TR into something Bladeforged and I just CAN NOT decide what to do. I have a weird restriction considering this is an MMO. I like to solo. I played this game originally to get a break from guild leadership in WoW so I never really met anyone. Because of that solo is a requirement. BF is a requirement because I truly think Recon SLA is borderline broken now that we can LR into anything and want to take advantage of it + BF looks cool. Judging from what I've seen and heard about Juggernauts certain Melee builds can solo EE's.
I've messed around with full Archer/monkcher builds and LOVED the power but just couldn't fully get behind the playstyle. It felt really boring AND that's coming from a 15wiz/3fvs/2mnk Shiradi (I play it a little different than most). It also felt a little clunky so maybe I was doing it wrong I also didn't have pinion on Lamannia due to char copy problems.
Anyway I'm not a huge fan of Arti tree's so Juggernaut seems out to me. I've been thinking of doing an Eldrich Knight melee with Perma Tensers, Manyshot with a Displace and Recon SLA's.
I generally like a monks playstyle and the speed of their attacks especially Unarmed. Monk 6 for 25% incorp seems nearly required but idk if the extra 15% over items is worth that restriction. All that is important but I will totally be up for suggestions even THF ones. ***BTW I'm not much of a fan of qstaff animations.
So far I've thought of:
8wiz/6mnk/6rgr TWF with 10k and MS. Tested on Lamannia and its strong but REALLY is stat and tome(read:TP) intensive to get Wisdom to 40+ Str to 23base and Dex to 21 base and is just a monkcher which I didn't like much. I guess dropping 10k stars is an option
12mnk/6wiz/2rgr (or) <insert something> Unarmed/TWF
11rgr/6wiz/3mnk (or) <insert> TWF
Some probably terrible ideas:
12arti/6wiz/2<insert> TWF or THF
12wiz/6fvs/2pal or 12fvs/6wiz/2pal THF
ANY build suggestions would be REALLY appreciated and my thanks in advance.
Also any experience people could share on whether Melee builds of any kind can survive in EE would REALLY be appreciated so I know whether or not to scrap this notion.
