    Default YACKM Build

    This is just a place to park my current mains life so that I have something to look at when I'm leveling. I'll be editing it as time goes on. Critiques are welcome of course, but he is just a Human Centered Kensai with a Ranger PL and garbage gear.

    2/27/14 Thoughts from the halfway mark. I had built JidzTekla Bracers (and a few other of the heroic named items in that chain) while running the epic quests last life. Drop rates for the heroic parts are very common in epic. Unfortunately the bracers don't help tremendously as I spend most of the time in earth wielding the staff or using the kama. +5 AC let's me use Outfits with a better Prefix/Sufix, tho. I tried out the waterstance poisen effect but it didn't seem to do anything

    Picked up some nice loot from quests I missed the first time through (Catacombs, Delera, Necropolis, and Chronoscope). Pillar of Light with a slotted Ruby of the Vampire Slayer (from the last Mabar) has been pretty useful. Got Carnifex (can't use it yet of course) and VotM. Made L8 on Saturday and 9 on Sun. Time for a fortification item, I think, as I got nailed a couple of times last night. However, for the most part, spamming light and finish plus a CSW Pot thrown in here and there keeps his HP topped off. He's not dominating the kill's list tho.

    2014/03/06 - After some consideration, I've decided to change the build midstream (He is L10). Mostly I'm not a fan of axes, I'm not happy with the power of Great Swords, and I don't have SoS let alone ESoS. I have some OK L12+ Khopeshes floating around from last life tho, so Im gonna visit Fred and swap THF with TWF. Build above has been changed to reflect the new path. Also Kensi Bonuses and Centered will still work with GrSw and TWF improves wraps use if I need them as DR breakers or something.
