    Default Shamanism

    A build that I will be testing soon. Long swords or War Hammers (Soulrazor or Reflection of Whelm, pick you poison. Reflection comes out around 1.5% ahead I think. Not sure the math is correct). Horc or Aasimar Scourge work. I went with Horc for something different. Charisma is possibly better for skills and energy burst. This format may also work well for a Warforged Longsword Build. Take Adamantine instead of Knight's Training.

    What does this build have going on for it, considering that it can be gear appropriately?

    From OS
    -Extra MRR (38, 84% of the time)
    -+1 range/Multiplier
    -+1 Multiplier on 19-20
    -+70 HPs(?)
    -30% chance to trip casters.
    -Metalline
    -A big heal (400*100% MP) Should be 1,200 with 200 MP, or maybe it's 800. It's some cushion.
    -Ear Smash: Mute those casters for 6 seconds.


    War Soul
    -Divine Will or Presense
    -Extra Vuln with some small healing for other melees around you
    -10% Double Strike
    -some extra damage
    -PRR Clicky

    Favored Soul
    250 HPs at Cap
    Sound Burst- 4 second stun
    Destruction- Kill something
    Slay Living- Kill living
    Heal- Quickened at 30
    Blade Barrier- Just run circles when all else fails.

    Barbarian
    -Some added damage mitigation
    -25% dodge clicky
    -Did with say 10% run speed

    Added base damage potential:
    +4 Horc
    +4 War Priest
    +3 Divine Favor
    +10 imp&barb power attack.
    ______________
    +21


    Gearing
    Part of the Family
    Armor
    Gloves
    Necklace

    5 Piece Mists
    ?

    Anyone have any thoughts?

    Destiny LD or DC (until updates)

    Had thought about something similar before tho never got around to fiddling with it.

    Will wait & watch for the build gurus to debug it & throwing /props on the concept in the meantime - especially for picking the best race for it.

    This has been on my mind for about 2 weeks. I was hoping someone would see the build and would have ran it, but it seems like a fairly virgin concept with everyone I've kicked the idea around with. Just waiting for lamma to open back up. It's hard working the sharn gear for it on paper, as there isn't any good melee work arounds I'm seeing so far for wisdom at the moment. I wish I could go TWF, but SWF and orb opens up better options so far. Necro orb swapping with Golden Orb of Death (20% elemental absorb, and +9 to saves when blocking) should cover the necro DCs. Got to get evo DCs and impulse for BB and cometfall.

    Again, not sure if I can get the DC for Destruction high enough to matter. That's probably what I'm interested most in knowing. Because I'd almost rather go 13/6/1 or 14/6. Still losing Mass SR I think, which seems extremely useful these days.
