Mawry is my first DDO character, and is still my “main”. She is a 32-point build focusing on DEX, and is based on a PnP character that was evenly split between Ranger and Wizard.
I rerolled her many times in 2006 before settling on max DEX and limiting her to only one level of wizard. The original vision was 9 rgr/1 wiz. Fighter levels were added at level cap increase for extra feats.
The wizard level gives her the Extend feat, built-in useful clickies (Shield), and just about every wand in the game. Later when Arcane Archer was added, Mawry already qualified.
I get questioned about the wizard level all the time but I’ve never regretted it. On the other hand, I have regretted the fighter levels. She has six of them now, and the Kensai PrE, but will seriously think about True Reincarnation as Rgr18/Mnk1/Wiz1.
According to Mawry, this is what makes a Commando:
Now if only her player was better.
