    Heyas Strimtom, looks super fun, but I had a few questions about it.

    Why did you go WIS instead of CHR?

    Is it for the Will Saves?

    CHR would help UMD and Draconic DC for some easy AoE?

    I am not super adept with the new ED's.

    I think WIS would let you take Mass Frog?

    ya would give you a better burst much better i think


    fvs get wis to hit as long as more then half your levels are fvs starting at level 2


    mass frog should be viable in theory, but havnt done the breakdown of it

    Since both are competence bonuses...they won't stack.

    Or go CHA instead of wisdom, grab 3 lvls of pally and spend 13 pts in SD for a 20% to HPs, better AC and saves.

    Pin is in his active ED.
    It does not appear they could afford Whistler.
    Sense Weakness should be considered.

    Inquisitive DPS + 150% threat stance = bad time.

    Yeah I don't remotely understand why the good stuff from Shiradi is missing and I have to pretend I didn't see Cocoon as the #2 most needed twist on a toon with 18 favored soul levels.

    Drop cocoon, for obvious reasons. We will all assume it was a copy paste error and move on.

    On a build that has high ROF, might make more sense to pick a proc based or ethereal scion? I’d like to hear what the experts have to say.

    Finally, what is the goal of the build? It probably levels easily p, provided you have gear, due to massive self heals and being carried by INQ. But is it a good healer for end game, or too squishy. Isn’t it beaten by things like sorc for leveling? What is the point.

    I watched a bit of the video and I agree that the amount of damage ranged is putting nowadays is problematic. It’s not just inq, sorcs are silly broken for low skulls right now.

    Sacred Defender threat gen stance is 50%. And it only applies to melee. Trust me it’s a hidden gem.

    U better don't, it's wrong from the split, ap spent, race, and twists
    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

    Go pure fvs or 4 arti (and pick endless fusilade to add extra doubleshoot while using no holds barrel, which has no wind up animation)
    Human gives nothing, if u're wis based, go aasimar for some extra doped heals, in fact for the same ap you have a lot of goodies in aasimar tree
    Also, if u're wis based, u can grab the falconry trance, i would not bother with special attacks, but extra hp and axtion boost speed are a must
    Warsoul is useless, the ap spent there will go for endless fusilade or falconry trance, unless you're other race than aasimar in which case u can grab both having 0 racials, also you would be taking the 10% ds as t4 in inquisitive

    And the ED only has wis on it and good stance, you could go lawful good and grab the t4? From divine crusader which would give your qeapon lawful + good damge bypass and that would beat all the non sense in twists (martial hymn is useful, kinda expensive tho)

    Grim precision is a must too, but if running shiradi you should use double rainbow (my favourite) or ice (wise option if running other ED, as twist)

    18 fvs is a bad split with inquis if not going pure cause by the timd u hit implosion, it won't land (energy drain would be more useful as opener for example)

    For racial TR's I think it would be great to have some trap skills for +30% exp. I agree with a lot of what you said though
