So I have a (H-Orc) Barb I'm not doing anything with who has two raider's boxes on it I figured I'd put to good use. I've been wanting a decent TWFer (outside of my Monk, that is) for a long time now, and I think I'm going to LR this Barb in to such a build. However, I'm having trouble deciding what build would be best for what I want.
I was thinking the typical 12 Fighter/6 Ranger/2 Monk would be fun. Then I realized that I'd have to LR in to something else, buy an alignment change to Lawful, and then LR once more to include the Monk levels. Bummer. Since I don't have the resources to do that right now, I thought I'd give the 2 Rogue splash a go.
My two main concerns, though, are the following:
1. Weapon choices. Khopesh look fabulous.. however, there aren't any Khopesh in those boxes I mentioned above. There are, however, Bastard Swords.. so how do the two compare these days? Something I'd read suggest that Khopesh are still king in terms of raw damage, considering the 3x multiplier means more critical effects, paired with the base 10% critical change and a not-so-bad base damage. Thoughts?
2. Level choices. At first glance, it looks like I'd be taking at least Rogue at 1 for the skill points, and to pick up Toughness or something. Then Ranger at 2, 4, 6, and 11 for the free TWF feats and Ranger spells at 4. Probably Ranger at 9, also, for Evasion, since taking Rogue at 2 would mean I'd need to meet a DEX requirement for TWF (and use a feat slot getting it). However, this is just how it looks to me at first glance.
If this is correct, where do I fill in the other levels? Obviously the easiest route would be to figure out where to put the other Rogue level, and then just fill in the rest with Fighter. So again assuming what I said above is correct, where's the best place for that other Rogue level? It almost looks like 19 for Imp. Evasion and the SA. Maybe as early as 13, since both Ranger and Fighter get nothing of note that level either.
But anyway, thoughts? If you want to just link me to a build that's essentially what I'm looking for without saying anything, that's fine, but I'd still at least like insight on the weapon issue. Thanks!
