    Okay, I'll add a few comments. First, I think you are missing a 4th level spell, since you should have 3 at 12th level. Not sure which one to recommend though. I haven't done a lot with the new enhancements, but did they change it so that Music of the Dead wasn't tied to Extra Song IV? I know it was in the original build. Also, are those your final spell selections? If so, I'd recommend dropping Exp. Retreat and taking Hypnotism.(Remove Fear is another good option with all of the mummies around now) Overall, a fairly solid build though.

    I wasn't sure how many spells I got at 12. I had to go off my book that came with the game that stopped at 10. lol Yeah...I'm sure I'll swap out expeditious retreat for something else after I get haste. I used that offline enhancement thing to work up the music of the dead thing. It worked there, but I don't have any way to actually test it on Risia. Thanks for the feedback. I just hit level 3 a minute ago...time to go play with my repeaters. lol

    Default Yep

    Started one up myself and instead of a 20 chr put my Con to 12 and wis to 10. Everything else was the same however. I was thinking about change 2 of my skills to be hide in shadow and move silently though for sneaking up and fascinating. Still not to sure on how that works but getting better at it. Other than that looks good. Hopefully dumping the 2 cha won't hurt that much. It's kinda nice to have the extra hp and not hurt my wil save as much as possible.

    Very nice build. Looks like a lot of fun. Your could lower DEX and raise CON without reducing your effectiveness, but this is minor detail. Your lack of a shield already makes you a bit squishy. My 16 DEX bard can consistently hit just about anything in the game with self-buffs.

    I had considered taking hide/move, but with my high dex those skills aren't actually that bad anyway. Plus, I can just cast an invis with a scroll or wand and go fascinate stuff.

    I picked up a +5 light mithral shield and have it set along with a spell penetration weapon in my hotkeys...right next to my new cursespewing heavy reapeater...it's easy to cc cursed monsters. lol

    I'm about to level up to 9 and throw on some +4 stat items to take care of my weak areas. I'm also in the process of changing up the spells and enhancements a little. I'll update my original post to reflect the changes. Thanks for the feedback!

    Thank you for posting this. I have lvled this build up to 12 and am doing great. I have a curse spewing heavy repeater and it adds to my role. If only I would trip over a paralizing one.

    I myself am planning on making a similar build going spellsinger with my rogue when she TRs, going spellsinger prestige so I can backup heal and do some support damage, just for a rough outline 16 dex, 13 CON, 20 CHA just curious as to what feats you are taking for a "crossbow" toon (siberys are expensive, lol), and what prestige you're taking and a little about why ( not trying to grill you or anYthing, like I said, trying to make a toon similar and I want different perspectives.)

    Thanks,
