    Default Violence Favored (Soul) Build

    You rarely see a pure FVS these days. Evokers are not viable for endgame content. People have been experimenting with low-medium wis builds, but I never saw someone go all the length. Wis dumpstat? Pure Cha fvs? Yes, it is possible.

    I give you the Violence Favored (Soul) build.

    Starting stats:

    08 str
    12 dex
    16 con
    14 int
    08 wis
    18 cha

    All lvlups in cha.

    feats:

    lvl 1: force of personality, maximize
    lvl 3: completionist
    lvl 6: mental toughness
    lvl 9: empower
    lvl 12: improved mental toughness
    lvl 15: quicken
    lvl 18: past live sorcerer
    lvl 21: epic mental toughness
    lvl 24: empower heal
    lvl 26: spellpower light
    lvl 27: ruin
    lvl 28: spellpower fire


    Skills:
    max out heal, spellcraft, balance, umd.
    rest goes into diplomacy (for an endvalue of 22 at lvl 20)
















    Hitpoints, Spellpoints and other stats (with Shipbuffs only):





    PRR:

    27 divine pastlives
    09 PDK pastlives
    10 wall of steel
    47 medium armor
    30 sheltering
    ==============
    123

    10 when below 50%hp
    20 sanctuary
    ==============
    153


    MRR:

    30 sheltering
    30 medium armor
    ==============
    60







    Spellpower Breakdown


    perma buffs
    080 spellcraft
    048 Angel of Vengeance Enhancement Tree
    015 Warpriest Enhancement Tree
    002 Harper Tree
    015 Ship Buff
    020 Epic Spellpower Light
    030 Iconic Pastlive Morninglord
    030 Radiant Power (Exalted Angel)
    015 Fey Form (Shiradi)
    005 Interrogation (Divine Crusader)
    015 Draconic Mind (blue dragonscale set)
    144 Spellpower Item
    020 Libram of Silver Magic (listed as +10 insightful bonus to spellpower but it is actually +20)
    054 implement bonus (+12 weapon, +3 epic pl, + 2 Warprist, + 1 harper = +18 enhancement)
    ==========================
    493



    long term buffs from enhancements/destinies/items
    030 Scourge (enhancement)
    025 Potion of Spellpower
    025 Potion of Superior Brilliance
    024 Meridian Fragment
    020 Empyrian Magic (Divine Crusader)
    030 Blood and Radiance (Exalted Angel)
    ==========================
    647 sustainable


    short term buffs
    020 Action Boost
    ==========================
    667 short-term






    To see what the overall spellpower looks like see below.
    Please note, that I was missing 8 Spellpower from the third stack of the Meridian Buff.
    Please also note the light damage in the combat log. This is non-crit damage from my archon. I summoned him before I had reached maximum Spellpower.

    Default

    Past Lives:

    I am pretty much heroic triple-completionist (missing some worthless fighter and monk lives), 3 lives PDK, Shadar-Kai and Morninglord. Also triple epic-completionist.

    Gear is as follows:

    conc opps goggles (hp/sp/sp)
    blue dragon helmet (insightful cha, deathblock, insightful con)
    epic noxious embers (fear immunity)
    epic litany (vitality +20, good luck +2)
    greensteel cloak (blindness immunity, hp, hp)
    epic belt of thoughtful rememberance
    lantern ring (+250 sp, +8 strength)
    epic fanged gloves (con +8, heal +13)
    surefooted boots (false life +40)
    ring of shadows (globe of imperial blood)

    thunderforged longsword (impulse, spell pen, eternal scorching light, insightful dex, devotion 138)
    libram of silver magic (meridian fragment)


    Cloak is a very nice slot to swap out, if you need sth like spell absorb, elemental absorb or whatever.

    Default U32 update?

    @Ambitious,

    Thanks for posting your build here. I need a FVS past life and I'm thinking along the lines of what you have here. Have you updated this build to post U32?

    I could try to figure it out myself but I'll humbly admit lesser caster experience.

    Thanks!
    Vote your conscience. The mob will certainly vote its.

    If all you are doing is getting to 30 then Im sure you will be fine. If you plan to do much at 30 then you are going to need a LOT of gear. My average gear FVS is basically useless in EE / LE content.

    Tis true ... saves though don't matter as much as they used to ... You can have high saves or ...

    lots of MRR, resists, absorption, FOM, and DW ... you can dump your saves then ... if you get stoned or something, just click your harper pin and then put your spell absorbtion item on until that encounter is done or find an anti-stoning item.

    Saves in today's game are overrated.

    I went pure Sun Elf (used the lesser heart) FvS. Pun intended: I had a blast. Knocked out a couple ETRs and can't wait to come back to it. Never felt like a chore to run it. For my first caster life, it was tons-o-fun.

    Thanks for posting your build!

    Default Violence FvS

    There is already a Violence FvS in the end game (on Ghallanda started the day FvS was released) and this is not his build

    Looks interesting though, great job thinking outside the box.
