    A was able to complete Disciples of Shar with three different PDK builds.

    9 Clr Strength Domain 6 Ftr
    Magic Backlash from Warpriest was hilariously effective in this quest. Also used Missile Shield from VG really helps a lot against archers.

    6 Ftr 6 Clr Str Domain 3 Pal

    Had around 40 of each saves nice tank right out of the box.

    12 Sorc 3 Ftr SWF
    Went with shock and awe here Tier 5 EK. Subtle Force for arrow deflection again a big help. Fire Shield was strong too.

    Was a lot of fun thanks

    Listed spells don't require reagents but you will need Owl's Wisdom potions if you don't want to rely on Ever Watchful for your WIS bonus.



    Pros: high survivability, good DPS (for a paladin with a longsword anyway), Holy Retribution is a pretty good AoE instakill at this level
    Cons: Took 27 1/2 minutes to finish, largely because I had no way of interrupting the Disciples from self-healing. They're immune to Holy Retribution's instakill, so they just keep going and going and going...

    So I rolled a Tiefling Scoundrel with ranger 11 for IPS.
    Scoundrel does not come with an Int item, so going harper is not really worth it.
    It does come with a vorpal crossbow, so it ain't so bad.

    AP I dumped 34ish into Inquisitive, 11 into swash and 13 into DWS.

    Ran normal because not VIP. Will try harder difficulty later.

    I love seeing these builds. I wish the "test" was a bit shorter, but it does cover the case of "can this character do low-shrine quests, too?" If the build can handle Disciples with baby iconic gear, there's absolutely no doubt it will be quite effective once geared up!

    I turned my thrower monk into an inquisitive for her second life (to earn scoundrel ITR feat). That tree is a LOT of fun and incredibly strong -- at level R1 solo of Impossible Demands was something she couldn't do as a thrower. Even post-29, Inquisitive DPS outperformed shuriken, though I suspect a real maximized thrower would top it (my thrower only had 86'ish DEX, iirc).
