    15 Barb Action Boost IV/7 with Improved DR II
    Total: 44/36

    That's pretty nice. I got a new build in the works finally, after a long hiatus from build design
    Just wondering, Maldini, where does '9 Base Level 14' DR come from? lol

    Guide could use a few updates, lvl14, platemail of giants, madstone shield (2 higher DR then a regular tower). DR boost now maxes at IV, not V

    My Barbs max DR:
    Base: 15 (DR Boost IV)

    (Blocking DR)
    14/2+2 = 9 (BAB/2+2)
    6 (Madstone Shield)
    5 (+5)
    = 20 +15 base, 35 Active DR, pretty good for no feats and only 10 AP spent.

    Your get DR while blocking based on your base attack bonus. Its BAB/2+2.

    Nice little feature as it prevents those crazy non-pure melees from being quite as effective tanks are the real ones when it comes to pure turtle tanking.

    Unless they cast a spell granting BAB 14, such as Divine Power or (ug) Tenser's Transformation. This means that the Divine Power spell can occasionally be useful for even a non-offensive healbot cleric, as it boosts your DR as you shieldblock and wait for someone to rescue you from the monsters.

    Tested that and it did not increase DR.

    Quick query: When you get multiple ranks of Dwarven Shield Mastery does the DR bonus add to the previous enhancement or does it only go to max 3 in the new enhancement system?

    No. A level 14 cleric blocking with +5 heavy shield = DR 14. Cast Divine Power, and you now have DR 16. It's right there in the combat log.

    Like all the enhancements (except maybe the new Toughness line?), the higher levels of a series override the previous ones, instead of stacking with them.

    Granted its only 15 seconds but you can choose to activate it vs waiting for it to work.

    You can test it again

    And Madstone Rage also provide the same future (raise your BAB equals to your character level)
