    Default The Heretic - FVS/WLK Inquisitive

    The Heretic

    Follower of both the Silver Flame and Cthulhu.


    12/7/1 Favored Soul/Warlock/Fighter

    Why?
    A slightly different multiclass build for (mostly solo) racial TRs, using synergies between Charisma based Favoured Soul and Warlock.

    Style (in a nutshell)

    Web and shoot.

    What does each class bring?

    Favoured Soul:
    Charisma to Hit and Damage
    Favoured Weapon: +6 to Hit, +5 to Damage
    Divine Might: Battle Trance. 50% of Charisma Modifier to Hit and Damage.
    120 extra HP
    Healing
    Death Ward

    Warlock:
    Web (2nd Tainted Scholar core)
    False Life + Feigned Health
    Brilliance
    + 3d4 light damage on attacks
    Assorted other stuff from Enlightened Spirit
    Good UMD
    Jump
    Blur
    Dimension Door

    Fighter:
    1 Extra Feat

    It is arguable whether it is worth taking Improved Precise Shot. With many mobs trapped in web, and the high survivability of this build with healing and abundant temporary HP, it usually isn't necessary to kite. If you aren't moving, Archer's Focus in Heroic levels does nearly twice as much damage on a single target as Improved Precise shot. So unless you are always shooting through 2 or more mobs, you will actually do more overall damage with Archer's Focus, and will certainly do far more damage on a single target.

    If I do this build again I will probably ditch IPS, start with 20 Constitution, and take Greater Spell Focus: Conjuration. (For Web)

    I am currently at level 18 with this build. I haven't fully fleshed out the Epic stuff as I will probably racial TR at 20.

    Race: Dwarf, but any race will do. Dwarf is obviously bad for Charisma, but good for Constitution. On balance, it about breaks even with this build.
    Alignment: True Neutral

    Progression: Build uses Longbow till level 6.5 when it has enough AP for Divine Inquisition and so switches to Dual Crossbow. It uses Entanglement (Great Old One pact spell) from level 4 until it gets Web (T2 Tainted Scholar spell) at level 8. (Entanglement isn't as good as Web but it is a lot better than nothing, especially at low levels.)

    Well you don't need it to stop every single mob, only enough that they aren't all trying to hit you. It's a pretty unsquishy build.

    This is with Summoner's Spectacles and Spell Focus: Conjuration. If I did it again I would have Greater Spell Focus: Conjuration too.

    How effective it would be in Epics is open to doubt, even with the two +Conjuration twists, but this is really only intended to be a Racial TR build.

    Web works fine in Epics when running in Magister, but that would be too much of a DPS hit for this build.

    Default Lots of Utility

    Could also go with Celestial pact and have 2 Soundbursts on separate CDs @ level 9. @ 4 FVS and 5 Warlock (Or 5 FVS then 5Lock to keep the Cha to hit/damage) With PLs, tomes and such could get a good DC on both in Heroics and maybe an OKish DC in epic given that you would probably run in Primal sphere and may be better things to twist for ranged over spell DC.
