I put together a build for a guildie and posted it to the forums, but for whatever reason I’m not getting any comments.
I really appreciate the peer review implied in a forum posting. I’m not saying all of the comments are helpful (LOL definitely not!) but many are. In this particular case there are a couple of open questions. I’ll excerpt the forum post:
This build is for a guildie that is looking to add DPS to our raids. After some conversation, we came up with a list of what he wants in the build:
- Assassin with a DPS emphasis
- Halfling (the character is for an all-Halfling guild)
Yes that is a short list. He asked me to put in anything else I thought would help. I think his playing style will benefit from improved saves. And I think he will enjoy being a top-shelf trapsmith too, he likes to be really involved.
- Levelups in INT or DEX?
- Does this build require Diplomacy?
- If Diplomacy is required, what do I give up to get it?
If the build was for me, I’d just roll it up and get playing: I am not afraid of the reroll. But it is for someone else and I’d really prefer to get it right the first time.
