    Default Where are Iconic Predetermined Paths?

    When you roll up an Iconic character, you can choose a "predetermined path".

    Is there somewhere I can see what these paths are?

    Cool

    Create one and see for yourself. :-D

    But… believe me, you don't need them. Predefined paths are the worst thing DDO has. Nobody should use them.

    I literally expected that someone would say that.

    Okay, let me put it this way: what is wrong with the current Morninglord path? What should I change?

    I have never seen the paths build selections anywhere. I dont know what exactly the morning lord path is but I do know it is caster focused in general as I recall. It wont pick enhancements so it is designed for divine disciple and radiant servant more than war priest. You cant completely change it without using a lesser heart of wood so you are best off picking from scratch if you want to make a war priest cleric.

    It may also focus on turn undead in fact I think it does. So you may want to spend points in turn undead stuff from the racial tree and the radiant servant tree if you want to go that route. I have no idea what cleric domain it picks. that is important.

    The paths are not awful choices on iconics but they require you wanting to play a build that uses the feat and stat choices it goes with and knowing what they are. Like I said as far as I know those paths nor any paths have ever been published.

    The Shadar kai is pretty straight forward assassin tree focused. The chain whip is weakish at lvl 15 and never improves as you level so avoid that.
    The Purple dragon Knight is ok with any of the fighter trees I would go vanguard as the main tree.
    The deep gnome is a combination conjurer illusionist wizard. I would go racial tree and arcmage tree with illusion focus to get 3 phantasmal killers and secondary focus in conjuration and acid spells I guess. Aim for 11 points in eldritch knight for hitpoints and fall back dps. Once you get any kind of good negative energy power lore and heal amp combo of equipment thought PM is vastly better than arch mage as a tree and a necromancy focus from scratch build with EK back up is the way to go.
    The Blade forged is likely good with knight of the chalice and racial and defender trees, just dont go vanguard on the path it has.
    I have no idea on the scourge or iconic tiefling paths. Though scourge looks like it would do great as a tempest tree and racial tree focused ranger with maces.

    feats

    improved single weapon fighting
    improved crit bludgeoning
    quicken spell
    greater single weapon fighting

    Fight with mace and orb combo to get single weapon fighting bonuses.

    Put 35 points in war priest in whatever looks good to you but make sure to get ameliorating strike and the tier 5s
    put 11 in radiant to get positive energy burst make sure to apply empowered healing.

    Get buff spells dont forget holy sword and healing spells and restoration and blade barrier to kite things through.
