    Default Favored Soul

    I have a Favored soul who is level 24, WF, +3 tomes in all stats, Greatsword user currently with a lightning 2 greensteel, using con opp bracers and some newer gear. I pretty much stopped playing him when 19 dropped as Melee souls got hit HARD by the nerf bat. My play style is self-healing/mass healing melee. I would drop back and play healer when I HAD to/in guild runs, but prefer to swing and mass. I based the build on this one and followed it pretty closely: https://www.ddo.com/forums/showthrea...oul%20survivor

    Basically I would like to TR him into a viable build like this one was prior to the changes. Can be minus the tanking/intim. Healing/DPS/Solo capable.

    The more help you can provide the better. I have been playing my melee builds up so haven't figured out all the new enhancement lines yet.

    Thanks in advance!

    Default 12 fighter/ 6 ranger/ 2 rogue

    Goals- Evasion, trapper, good TWF, self sufficient w/ healing<good UMD, fair to good range abilities- AA mixed in would be nice but not totally needed. Good solo ability for most heroic quests.

    Weapons- It does not matter to me. I'll craft as I go or use what I got.

    ED- Only tinkered with it on past wizard life (cant think of whats its called) so its not that important since this is my completionist guy, get to 20 then TR basically

    Tomes- +5 for all (Str, dex, con, etc)abilities, also have several for the other skills (Bal., DD, Search, etc.), +2 or better on most if I remember, trapping/ rogue skills +4 I think.

    TR- Past lifes are as follows- Cleric, Wizard, Druid, Barbarian. All previous lives had 2 rogue splashes, I like evasion and being able to do traps, its just how I like it. Have all races and classes, 36 point build ability.


    This is for me to get through my fighter life, since melee is not my thing so much.
    TY In advance!

    Hi, new player here. Been looking for a game for the family to play together for the last year, since City of Heroes closed down. I'm looking for an Elvish Arcane Archer build, that is new (F2P) player friendly. Also, if you work in trap disabling and open locks, that would be wonderful. Thanks in advance for any help!

    I am not ze, but I figured this is something I could potentially help with. Here is a quick 28pt Elf AA. I also fit in full trap skills.

    I miss CoH, the only MMO I ever got my wife to play and actually like. Welcome to DDO, and I'll vouch for John Rove's builds...though it is hard to believe it doesn't include some monk.

    Looks good, but at which level do we take each enhancement? Not quite sure yet with sorting all that out.

    Thanks!

    ED that you would like........................ Don't mind so long as it fits the character needs
    and anything else.............................. This is where it gets interesting, 32pt build anything but a sorc as I have each savant. This one will get an heroic Otto and +5 supreme tome so no need to swap feats to survive.

    I have played all races except drow, and at least had some experience with every class. As well as the sorc I am loath to play a bard. Mine got stuck at level 15 and is now a packhorse. No greensteel experience or anything like that so basically either drop weapons or work around commendations in Evenstar to get me what I need. I have MotU and Shadowfell so have the Panther and Owlbear permanent hirelings. Happy to get a hireling healer and will probably look to run Devil assault quite a lot as I for some reason enjoy fighting waves.

    What I am really looking for is surviving with dps. I only have one multiclass so if that would make a better build happy to try it.

    Edit

    Would add that preference if a melee works better then minimal hot key requirement please. If a caster it doesn't matter as much as I set my keyboard and mouse different for each type (probably why I hate bard).

I don't have much preference on race and do have access to Iconics if you think it is worth going that route.

    So in summary what I'm looking for is actually pretty easy to do I think:
    --Pale Master
    --Eldritch Knight
    --Spells primarily for support and Point Blank AOE (have another Sorc and Monkcher for all the ranged goodness I need)
    --Melee viable

    So, hook me up Ze I'm interested in your expertise...

    So uhh I was looking for a build myself sort of like that and I was having problems doing it, I got my friend to help and I ended up with:

    http://pastebin.com/xiDGhBw1

    If this is not what you are looking for send me a PM and I'll give it a go, but I am using that build personally and I like it quite a bit

    However, there are a couple of sticking points that I want for this toon; 1. Must be Drow 2.Must Dual-Wield Khopesh.

    Weapon of choice that you would like:
    Well, I have a pretty decent collection of Khopesh (the plural form of Khopesh is Khopesh), including a pair of GreenSteel blanks that I would like to do something with, since they are already bound to this toon.


    ED that you would like:
    No specific ED in mind at this time. I would like to get through a couple of Heroic TR's. I am almost done with 1st life (hence the interest in your opinion) and am not worried about ED until my 3rd life. Actually, your response to this post may have some impact on what ED I ultimately go with.

    Tomes:
    This will be my 2nd life on this toon and I have already "eaten" a +4 Supreme Ability Tome. (thats right, I drank too much one night and got all "pay to win" in the DDO Store). So that should make for some fun possibilities.

    If it is a TR then I need all past lives:
    It will be a TR into it's 2nd life. Right now it would be a Fighter Past Life but as I still have a "+20 LR Heart of Wood" it could be anything I wanted it to be.

    Thanks Ze!

    Someone asked for a khopesh TWF that happened to be drow? well I made it a monk, you heard me! *6 multi on 19/20, 13-20 crit chance with drow khopesh, with ninja poison and venomed blades to boot! looks like your blades will be sharper than the other drow hero's blades from forgotten realms (yes i just went there!) now.... if only i could make you Lawful Evil....

    Default Thanks But lol...

    Ze thanks for the build but ran into a bit of difficulty. As this is first life I can't eat the tome till level 19 so the extra strength and dex I need from level 5 on doesn't happen. Help.

    Vet 7 so got to level 5 and stalled on the airship. I was looking to see if any of the feats could be shuffled but even if I could I would miss out on at least a couple. So wondering what am I going to do now?
    Okay off to blow stuff up with one of my sorcs. Thanks again in advance for any help.

    Edit done some thinking
    I am going to have to change either power attack or improved TWF. If I take dex 1pt at lvl 4 instead of wisdom it will give me dex 17 for ITWF. This is why my characters tend to wander all over the place in builds as I try to fit in all requirements. Or I could take the 1pt in strength at 4 so I can take power attack.

    You said you were going to stone and then use the tomes, my line of thinking was if you take the level progression, then use your free LR heart then you can fit it in like the build is (or you can do what you said) biggest thing is if you do the LR heart then you won't have a way to change if by chance you dislike my build (which is a possibility, I don't enjoy all my builds, just most of them)

    Ah I see, this comes from me only using LR to correct my brain freezes or dev nerfing. I don't think LR to get the full range of abilities. Too much PnP in my youth many moons ago where if you didn't like a character you killed him and if you did like a character the DM would kill him.

    Clan Grouse and in particular the soon to exist GrouseAlden thank you.

    Out of curiosity... http://wiki.mtgsalvation.com/images/f/f6/Vraska.jpg

    Create a build based on that image. I sorta want to see what you'll come up with (and how it beats what I came up with into the ground)

    I looked at that and saw a poisonous creature

    http://pastebin.com/3UkY3k5R

    Specializing in poison you have a few weapon options Shuriken (suggested) and Shortsword (Viable)
    Creeping Doom (a lvl 6 druid spell) and enveloping swarm will be your poison damage spells
    every crit you deal with your shuriken (or shortsword) will add a stack of ninja poison, which makes them 5% more vulnerable to poison damage, stacking up to 20 times. With a quiver of poison (from gianthold) and envenomed blades from drow tree you will be dealing upwards of 2 poison damages per throw. Creeping Doom and Insidious Spores (primal avatar T1) will be dealing upwards of 100 damage a tic, both are dots. With 20 stacks of ninja poison I am thinking they could easily hit in the 500s.
    Creeping doom hits the enemy and then explodes outward covering a radius similar to that of a fireball with a poisonous Dot that lasts about 10 seconds.
    Insidious Spores hits an enemy and when killed spreads to nearby enemies, causing you to have one enemy infecting others just like a plague.

    All in all I like the build concept and I might TR my current shuriken thrower into said build (after I unlock Shiradi and Primal Avatar).

    AielloAA requested a build via PM

    An elven wizard focusing on death spells. Every spell that was taken has a death effect portion to the spell. The reason for the whole dragonmark line is for a viable neg level choice that bypasses SR (reducing saves). With 20 wizard, 3 spell pen from archmage, 3 spell pen from elf, and 6 spell pen from feats you have the highest possible first life spell pen (to reach more ED's, PL's, and Gear must be obtained). Throw your SLA PK around as often as you'd like, having not the best DC it is going to be your cheapest death spell in your book. That's about all I can say about this build
