    Hey Strimtom, great build thanks for doing this. Question: whats the point of the two hand and two weapons stuff at epic? does it help with sword and board or do you switch fighting styles?

    Default Two handed weapon feats.

    I am curious as to why you took the two handed weapon feats and how do they impact this build. Do they actually add glancing blows to weapons that do not have glancing blows? I check and the khopesh did not pick up glancing blows with update 5 so I am wonder why the feats were taken. Do they affect the tower shield? I am really curious as to their function in your build.

    Thanks

    Most likely for Epic Defensive Fighting.

    Strimtom mentions he doesn't run in Stalwart Defender (AP aside) because it causes aggro and doesn't cause damage. This means he doesn't have a % Competence bonus to HP, which 13+ SD points usually covers for other Kensai builds. EDF gives 5% hp + 5% per combat style feat (which doesn't include Shield Mastery) for a total of 20% with THF/ITHF/PTHF. As he's not tossing out heals or spells, the stance has no real downside for this build

    I am playing a Aasimar Ftr 20 Vanguard. My setup with Sharn gear:

    Head: Leg Umber Brim
    Necklace: Leg Family Recruit Signet
    Trinket: (Cannith Crafted: Ins Con, Parrying, Sheltering)
    Cloak: Leg Mantle of Fury
    Belt: (Leg Shadow's Embrace)
    Ring1: Slave Lords (Wis, Resi, Quali Con)
    Ring 2: Leg Celestial Ruby Ring
    Gloves: Leg Hammerfist
    Boots: (Many-Hooked Greaves)
    Wrist: Brand of Kalok Shash
    AC: Leg Enforcer's Plate
    Goggles: Leg Precision Lenses

    Belt and Boots are good spots for Leg Greensteel but I will TR soon so I won't craft new this life, maybe next.
    Slave Lords for Trinket is possible, too.

    I didn't like giving up Ravenloft but this setup works good.

    Using a similar set:
    Ring1: leg ruby with dex
    Ring2: leg ring of power
    Googles: leg collective sight with wis+ins str
    Cloak: leg cloak of the city's champion
    Belt: leg bronze dragonscale belt
    Boots: leg flightfoot Greaves
    Trinket: cc with sheltering, ins mrr and doublestrike.

    Heavy armor dps set, umber brim and str artifact.

    All easy to get, no need farm raids, slavers, etc.

    I switched to Fury and it suits my playstyle so much better. Go in and take out the enemy fast and hard. Lots of fun.
    Twists:
    - Meld into darkness
    - Grim Precision
    - Legendary Shield Mastery
    - Either Legendary Tactics or Extra Action Boost (in Sharn I use Tactics in all other content Boosts)

    Bam, in the face!
