    That is quite the list.

    Few thoughts for similar (unusual but playable) builds that don't seem to be on your list:

    Max CON dwarf barbarian with Throw Your Weight Around for CON to damage (although maybe your occult slayer was one of these)

    Melee artificer with bastard sword / THF feats / runearm

    Illusion archmage

    Divine light nuker, either FvS or Cleric (not that unusual, I know -- actually kind of FOTM -- but they seem fun)

    death priest was a light slinger then swapped over
    and my illusion archmage decided that bastard swords were funner (mainly due to finding a nightmare then pulling one from box)
    yea... i should do the con occult slayer

    I've thought about the BS/Runearm Arti build. Is it viable 20+ ?

    On another note have you tried a Bardificier? X levels of bard/+x levels of arty/ and possibly+x levels of Rogue if you want evasion, its fun and survivable but not particularly effective in EE without really good skill/gear.

    I don't see anything quite like one of my Tempest Warpriests; nor a druid wolf build. Also, as long as we're tossing out ideas just to see what sticks, what about *rolls GIMP generator* DEX-based druid 13 / monk 6 TWF w/short swords focused on water elem form for no-save spells like Ice Storm & both Creeping Colds.

    It's obviously time to roll the TWF Elf Tempest/Radiant Servant of the Undying Court.

    or a Half-Orc Druid water elemental form DOT tank.

    When I saw the title, I immediately thought: "Unorthodox? You mean you don't use a monkcher for everything?" ...

    But seriously, how is the pure henshin mystic? I've been curious about it, but at a glance seemed rather weak. Also I've yet to see any in game.
    We want more Monster Manuals.

    When QA is telling you what to roll, you have not come up with enough ideas. LOL

    How about a dual tensers (tensers and bladesworn).

    The pure henshin is difficult to level, but i jumped the char up to 28 on lamma when it was up. It is a very fun character to play, though with dojo stuff etc it is not EE capable. It was however extremely fun! (HADOUKEN!)

    EK can give you perma tensers, so all you probably would want to do is roll an iconic bladeforged 12/6/2 wiz/paly/monk (or sorc if you want to roll cha hard). The down side I have seen so far is your healing is limited while in bladesowrn (throw cocoon up before turning full armor mode on). But iirc lay on hands works and so does pots of repair. I never had to cast spells on myself when I was testing the build on lam, so I know it is pretty strong.

    Originally I was going to call it the Susanoo build (yes, from Naturo). But the armors look the same. it would be cool if they didn't so the overlap made a nicer looking suit.

    Also I have a bug with it; when Bladesworn wears off, you lose some of the benefits from tensers (specifically the AC boost). May be a display issue, but I haven't checked into it much.

    You are missing a no-favor character. One that hit level cap with no quests done at all: Only wilderness.

    Illusion-based archmage is another popular option that is missing.

    Max-Cha PDK Pally/Fighter is other good option.
    Main: Amossa d'Cannith, Sarlona, casually trying Completionist [<o>]

    Almost-never-played-alts: Arquera - Chapolin - Fabber - Herweg - Mecanico - Tenma

    I want DDO to be a better game. Those are my personal suggestions on: Ammunition, Archmage, Combat Stances, Deities, Dispel Magic, Epic Destiny Map, Fast Healing, Favor, Favored Enemy, Half-elf Enhancements, Monk Stances, Past Life, Potency, Potions, Ranger Spells, Summons, Tiered Loot.

    LoH and Reconstruct SLA both work fine on my BF pally while Bladesworn.
