    Default Alch multi thrower build (need advice) will update

    Hello all

    I want try my first thrower build, I understand their underwhelming until 20+ so i will adapt the build until 20

    The three builds in question are:

    12 Alch / 6 Fight / 2 Rog

    12 Alch / 6 Rngr / 2 Rog

    12 Alch / 6 Bard / 2 Arti

    I plan to cap VKF, on all build and each seems to have its benefits but so far Alch / Fight / Rog is giving me the best numbers on the character generator, not sure if going bard for squashy adds that much more dps.

    Will update thread ASAP and post the build as soon as I can , in the mean time, any advice ?

    Disclaimer: I haven't bought Alchemist yet so I'm just theorycrafting here.

    The big advantage to Swashbuckler is its critical threat bonuses are frontloaded at level 3, whereas Alchemist / Vile Chemist doesn't get its crit range bonus until level 12 (Fatal Poison) and its crit multiplier is level 18 core. That would certainly help make heroic leveling more bearable than a pure-ish Alchemist IMO. The biggest downside is Swashbuckling restricts you to light armor. OTOH tier-4 SB is not that great for a thrower build IMO and I presume you're going for tier-5 VC or VKF. So bard 4-6 isn't adding much to your DPS.

    I saw someone propose Alchemist 16 / bard 3 / rogue 1 for a thrower build: rogue splash for trap skills (Evasion comes from Liquid Luck at Alchemist 12); bard 3 for Swashbuckling + tier-3 SB (Dashing Scoundrel or Arcane Marauder); Alchemist 16 for, well, everything else. You can either take Battalion Brew (INT to hit and damage with Simple weapons) or use Harper tree. Vile Chemist 12 lets you use INT instead of DEX to determine your Doubleshot bonus from Simple Thrown Expertise; so max INT plus enough DEX for ranged feat pre-reqs.
