So Mawry’s current life is as a DEX-based two-weapon-fighting rogue-splash battle cleric. But she has a feat quandary: there are ten feats she really wants but only seven that she will actually get.
Before we get into the details, let’s get the unpleasantness out of the way:
- Yes, I know that no one else is building DEX battle clerics
- Yes, I know that battle clerics are themselves not hugely popular
- Yes, I know that I may be the only rogue/cleric on Sarlona
- Yes, I know there are good reasons for the above bullet points
And yet, this is what I am doing.
As I learned in my last life, I will be soloing a lot. Possibly more than not. This build is designed to solo at all levels. Evasion, some Armor Class, some melee damage capability, lots of self-healing. All good in solo situations. Good enough? Time will tell, as will my choice of feats.
Bringing me back to my current quandary. There are ten that I want but only seven that I will get:
- Weapon Finesse
- Two Weapon Fighting
- Improved TWF
- Greater TWF
- Improved Critical
- Empower Healing
Some of this list is non-negotiable, I simply must have them. I’ve annotated those in italics. But I really want all of them, they are all very important to this build.
Adding Fighter levels to get extra feats (or even Ranger for one of the feats) is an option, but with a heavy downside. Mawry is already planning two levels of Rogue so that she can have Evasion. She is not going to get Heal and Blade Barrier till level 14 as it is. As a completionist, she will never be higher than level 18, banking level 19 until she is capped and then reincarnating again.
But she will be level 18 for a long time, there are an awful lot of experience points between level 18 and capped.
I am thinking that I will take Improved TWF and then just wait till I get to level 18 to decide what to take last. Quicken if I am having issues getting heals off in spite of my max-pumped Concentration. Maximize if my Blade Barrier is not getting the job done. Greater TWF or maybe even Precision if I am having problems hitting.
Opinions? Other than “don’t make a DEX battle cleric”?
