    Just avoid glass cannon melee builds and let them play what they like. Avoid complicated builds, sit back and grab a beer.

    Also, get an evasion trapper, e.g. Mech.

    Static group of 5 newbies plus you? Ask them what they want to play, then point them to the right build thread. Pick your build based on any gaps in the lineup. No one picked a trapper? Roll a Mechanic or Artificer. Need a healer? Pick your favorite divine caster build.
    Major build threads: Axesinger / Dwarven Defender / Drow Ninja / Drow Paladin / Elven Ranger / Monkcher / Sacred Vanguard / Cleric Domains / Kundarak Brigade / Iconic Builds

    Default This team can go epic elites even reaper as first lifers (But need warm up first)

    2X Rogue Mechanic Ranged dps, traps, aoe alch traps cc burst, wand bot/ scroll buff/heal (These guys combo with anything and self)


    1x Bard Swashbuckler Melee+Thrower+Instakill, dps Buff, minor heal (sick combo with acrobat)

    1x Bard Spellsinger Buff, Heal, Sonic cc
    1x Bard Warchanter Buff, melee, Heal, cleave freeze cc. (These two is sick buffer, controller, good heals, and can dish some good damage, full umd bot)

    1x Rogue Acrobat CC and aoe CC, with instant burst and dps, also fair enough wand, scroll use to support (sick combo with swashbuckler)



    The party has insane ability to twist and turn and do amazing things with almost any style. Too many alternatives and optionals are unlocked at all adventures. For anyone who wish to dive deep in to anything about DDO.


    (Ps: I feel sorry for Assasin...)

    Human race is NOT flavor.


    My humble pieces of eight.

    Whether or not you go 2 Mechs, it's a good idea to have 2 Trappers of some stripe.* If one of your party isn't online (or their character dies), you still have it covered.

    (* Besides the many varieties of "Rogue" (Mech/Great Crossbow may be best for this purpose imo), you could do...

    o Tempest (Ranger) - either bow, or 2-weapon (w/ default feats as back-up ranged)
    o Pale Trapper - Undead, self-healing Wizard who can trap
    o Repeater Pali
    o Trapper Cleric
    o Bard
    ... and the list goes on.

    The "Build Repository" (where most of those are listed) may seem dated, but most builds are still solid, and the few that could benefit from updates are still perfectly serviceable (just that they could be even better!). If you simply do a [ctl+f] for "Rog", many (but not all) of the builds that include Rogue can do trapping.)

    And Artificer, pure or mixed, of course - altho' I get the impression that we're talking (mostly) F2P here - right?

    Well, at these lowest levels a build is not that important than at higher levels. At the lowest levels, anyone can't do much. And I speak of levels 1-4 (or even 5).
