    Default 1-30 Reaper Clonklock



    This build is quite literally god mode. In heroics, warlock and monk levels are front loaded, and the combined defenses of warlock temporary hitpoints and monk evasion and AoE damage makes you a walking demigod. In epics, one turns into an Avatar of Nature, which is a god of nature. Then you stomp everything into the ground. It has solid defenses, healing, dps, self-buffing, and group healing. CC is weaker but sufficient.

    This only exists because of Gargoyle69. I left game for awhile and deleted builds. You can thank him for making a copy. Maelodic came up with this build first, but I tweaked it for reaper streaking 1-30 grouped or solo and for making a cleric.

    In heroics, you are going to have an eldritch burst/spirit blast/whirlwhind attack rotation with a few punches thrown in at level 12. In epics, that will swap to a cleave/great cleave/whirlwind attack rotation with a few punches thrown in using Avatar of Nature (aka tree form).

    I didn't have Ravenloft, so this would be a bit easier for you with a sentient weapon. I did however have a permanent acid cloud dot and debuff which doesn't go away on death. Heh.

    another interesting build indeed

    is that an updated version of your... aberration? i think you made something like that lol
    psykopeta is finally baconpletionist because there isn't anything to delay it more - thelanis, where the gimps claim to be pros and noobs claim to be pros, no newbies allowed(unless they claim to be pros), we have enough drama w/o them. PS: I post only in the latest thread shown in main page, in the weird case u want something from me, feel free to send pm

    Which, at level 1 is a pointless amount, and at level 12 is a hilarious joke. So we are going to heal with temporary hit points instead, which bypass the reaper penalty using the warlock tree. Since the warlock ES tree also adds light damage on hit, we want to attack really fast, which monk lets us do with unarmed.

    ...

    Cool build. Thanks for posting.

    Thank you for the post. Do you have any advice on equipping this build? Especially at epic levels...

    A few questions:
    1. How does that look, about right overall ?
    2. Fiend or Fey Pact ? Can't be GOO with Monk but either of the other two work - any reason for a preference for one about the other ? HtH ?
    3. Which Deity ? Sovereign Host for Unyielding Sovereignty ?
    4. Elusive Target or Guardian Angel for L28 ED Feat ? I was of the understanding that GA was superior numerically, even without Wis primary but I could be wrong ?


    Thanks in advance.

I like elusive target, since it prevent's getting hit and dot stacked by champions, but it is so close to ETR that it doesn't matter much to me if it is better or worse than GA. Same with Epic DR at 30 vs. another monk stance. The banked AP at 20 goes into human HAMP.

    I also don't actually ever use primal scream on the build, since I ETR at cap, but I put it there to fill it in the build for what others will find works well. I personally would take a weaker passive twist, like unearthly reactions, just so I don't have to hit another button!

    Also charisma is important for feigned health in low heroics, UMD heal scrolls in mid heroics, and turn undead charges for spirit in epics, so I wouldn't dump stat it ever.
    Thanks for the replies. I just might have to try this crazy thing out.

    Default Quick play test

    I enjoyed the OP's writing style, decided to do a quick run. Rolled up a first-life level 7, ran Devil Assault normal (level 6) with just starter gear and ship buffs. Set aura burst on key 'V', great cleave on 'B', used False Live maybe twice.

    Only challenge was chasing down the archers and mages. I printed the build and put it on top of the stack for 'next lives'.

    Enjoyed the post and the build. Thanks.

    Was this the build in Thorn & Paw with me a short while ago? And yeah, Tilo was killing everything.

    Just wondering, how would this look on a morninglord iconic. Very interesting build though

    I'm just not a numbers person, so sometimes when I see an interesting build, I try to see what the numbers people can see when they do a variation of it

    I remember I had tried to make something similar to this prior (https://www.ddo.com/forums/showthrea...ura-Tree-Build), it looks like you've fleshed it out very well!

    How's the damage outside of tree form?

    How's the damage outside of tree form?
    For any tree build the DPS using your shortswords or even handwraps is going to be... mediocre at best :P itll be maybe 25?% ish of a decently speced fighter

    Tilo has so much accumulated power the character would still do fine without tree form compared to everyone else. Less damage setup, but due to all the healing bypassing the reaper penalty the ability to play very aggressively cancels it out. It is unusual not to top the kill meters 1-20 even before tree form simply because it is a pure AoE build with cleave, great cleave(or spirit blast), aura, and whirlwind. Maybe a sound burst if you can land it.
    I had a kid and took an extended break, so I only ever got to test it on lama. It did what I wanted to do, which was not die and do a ton of damage, but I think a bit more refining would have been good.
