So the other day I tweeted asking for some thoughts about a 1/2/17Fighter/Rogue/Bard Life as a Purple Dragon Knight. I got a lot of good feed back, and I think I have settled in on a 2/2/16 Ftr/Rog/Bard PDK build.

I used Ron’s Character Planner (version 4.20.2) and tweeked the build export file to show the Single Weapon Fighting Feats and my Feat options/thoughts for level 18. I should point out to that this build does not reflect the entire enhancement selection, as Swashbuckler has not been added to Ron’s Character Planner yet ( i even checked to see if there was an updated version prior to starting my build and making this post).

Overall goals are for a Bard Past Life, Swashbuckler focused, Evasion build with a lot of Dodge with the main focus on hitting hard and often, and not getting hit. I am planning on taking the buckler option for my Swashbuckling Stance for the 10% Dodge. I’d like to splash in some Spell Singer and see if I can get some of the Sonic SLAs as well. Not sure if I will do much if anything in the fighter trees, but may look at the Assassin tree for some more sneak attack and the Kensai tree for some bonuses to hit and damage with light blades and some more dodge if I can.

And while those reasons may differ from player to player, the end result is the same: This change just plain sucks, and at least one person has likened it to the “Glitches” experience with the launch of healthcare.gov.

So what is the one overarching symptom or reason leading to this complete and utter rejection? A Complete and Total Breakdown in communications. Yes, that’s right a break down in communications. Any successful leader and business man (or woman) understands Communication is a two way street, and that it is a constant repeating process.
