    Default The Deathmetal Toaster

    When I saw the swashbuckling enhancement line come out, I was excited. Finally a way to get through my bard life and not be just a wanna be fighter filled with buffs and some CC. I took my inspiration for my first go around at a bard from Maelodic's [U22] Maelodic - Merrily Murdering the Masses (20 Bard)

    As a heads up, I have +5 tomes on all ablities, and 1 +6 ( I cant remember which skill it is right now). This is a flavor build. But without Further ado, I give you The Deathmetal Toaster.



    Lvl 20 Bard/8 Epic Warforged
    Chaotic Good



    STATS (36 Point)

    STR 38 ((12 Base + 5 Tome + 8 Enhancement + 2 Insightful + 1 Exceptional + 2 Inspire Excellence + 2 Ship + 2 Rage + 4 Skaldic)
    DEX 35 (12 Base + 5 Tome + 11 Enhancement + 1 Exceptional + 2 Inspire Excellence + 2 Capstone + 2 Ship)
    CON 42 (17 Base + 5 Tome + 8 Enhancement + 3 Insightful + 1 Exceptional + 2 Inspire Excellence + 2 Ship + 2 Rage + 2 Enhancements)
    INT 20 (10 Base + 5 Tome + 1 Exceptional + 2 Inspire Excellence + 2 Ship)
    WIS 26 (8 Base + 5 Tome + 8 Enhancement + 1 Exceptional + 2 Inspire Excellence + 2 Ship)
    CHA 47 (16 Base + 7 Level + 5 Tome + 10 Enhancement + 2 Insightful + 1 Exceptional + 2 Inspire Excellence + 2 Capstone + 2 Ship)

    For Gear, Feats, Enhancements, and ED go Here
    Maelodic Gave me the idea to use Google Docs to keep things organized.

    Skills
    Max Balance, Concentration, Diplomacy, Haggle, Perform, Spellcraft, Tumble and UMD

    Epic Destiny
    I decided i like Divine Crusader, the breakdown of my tree is in the Google Doc spreadsheet


    As for my HP, perform and all the other fancy things, I am not the best at calculating all of that, But i know my saves wont be amazing, but This build should have 85~ PRR, 32% dodge, 720~hp (without things like Yugos or expensive hard to keep buffs) and 1400 or so SP. I'm hoping some of you can help me make this better, but keep the flavor of it.

    Only 2 +1 Hearts? AFAIK, you can't LR with banked levels, so you'd need to get rid of 15 non-Bard levels. +1 Heart to remove Paladin, then alignment change, then 3x +5 to change all non-Bard levels into Bard ones. Quite expensive for a Bard life.

    Secondly, why? Bards have decent self-healing already, especially in Divine Crusader, so Communion of Scribing is much less appealing. What does going Bladeforged really gain you?

    Ya without that +20 heart they gave us that one time there is no way this is a great idea.

    Can you change build name to concert diva, the super expensive bard?
    First you need iconics, 2ndly you need aligment change and thirdly you need a bunch of hearts.
    Worth it for the ability on a selfhealing class base and not to splash fighter or rogue for capstone alone? Not in my textbook of efficiency.
    IF you did a 12 fighter/2 rogue/1 palie and then used +1 heart and alig change you would end up with a beter build overall +cheaper and if you really wanted a goodish bard, with bard icon then split to 12 bard or 10 bard 8 fighter/6 fighter 2 rogue

    Money doesn't seem to a problem, I'd put up suggestions knowing he's willing to spend.

    My input: this still does not make sense. I was trying to find some synergy in the enhancements but there's still nothing.

    Was more for Flavor than anything else. I am changing it to Warforged, just due to the fact Bladeforged is just not worth the time and or money involved. When i fix the spreadsheet ill be reposting the stuff on here (Yes I know warforged will not be super IMBA)

    Totally agree.
    I turned a Bladeforged into a druid... It cost me $180 USD
    Don't do it.

    And DDO is ridiculous giving Iconics a set 1st level.
    Games bad enough with the level 28 cap on Iconics to TR, get rid of the 1st level pre determined class.

    I have done 3 Iconic toons now and am going back to heroics until they revise the way Iconics level.
