    I wanted a quick damage heavy build that uses vistani with many options of causing helplessness.

    Am i spreading myself too thin? Is this a glass cannon? I wanted defense to be good saves + dodge.

    Thoughts?

    It won't be terrible but you're definitely trading a huge chunk of dps in order to be more defensive. I recently ran a 18ftr/1barb/1fvs at cap for a little bit with the intention of it being a real for real glass cannon. Figured Pain main hand and Dust offhand then swapping off to Suffering would make for pretty big numbers and greatly help out raid parties. But...it was super squishy and a rogue with 18 levels is significantly better overall DPS running the same weapons setup. The reason I bring this up is because the build I ran is a fair bit more DPS than yours posted here and I honestly found it to be lacking in comparison to similar builds like rogue/vistani and tempest.

    At cap that build would be fairly solid though and versatile for soloing. Consider swapping out Cometfall for Heal or maybe dump Falconry for capstone in Vistani, one or the other. And don't forget that in order to get the spells to land you still have to gear for DC's at some point.

    Why not Vistani t5 and capstone? This would allow you to greatly reduce kensai AP and possibly fighter levels.
