I have been dancing around this idea for a while now but after reading Geoff’s article this morning i think now is the time to stand and stay this out loud. Dwarf’s are currently the master race. And if you want to have the idea low gear leveler i think you want a dwarf rouge/X build.
That feels good to say… Hope it was super controversial. It was in my mind…
I feel like i lead the curve on things like this and then jump ship right as it becomes main stream. So i half feel like there will be a huge up swing in the fat halfling characters. I remember reading a tag some were that said something like: Will play any class or race except dwarf and rangers, they are the easy buttons of DDo.
Now i dont know about the ranger thing, but i will say 6 or so ranger levels are fairly sweet. But i totally agree that the dwarf is the master race right now knocking the plastic helfs off their throne for the foreseeable future.
I currently have 4 actively being played dwarfs or fat halflings, Samius, Butterzotch, As400 and SamiusJr. And i have to say the racial line is amazing.
- Massive amounts of Con and HP equals staying alive power, no brainer.
- Iron Stomach is great, drink any pot and get lots of perks.
- MORE SWEET AXE ACTION!!!!!!
- Bonuses to Tactics, if you are a tactics person you know how important these bonuses are.
- The dragonmark gives SR, a forcefield and an earth grab attack… Okay so SR and forcefeild bitches!
- And Throw your weight around, WTF? Con give HP, Con is damage, Con is HPDPS? Yes please!
And you know that mountain line is not bad either, if you have the HP do you really need reflex saves? Just twist them in.
Also my quick 2 cents on what is the best single class to level up. Is the one that had the lowest score, yep for me it was the fighter. Namely when i was doing the tank on the cheep thing he mostly leveled to cap solo at the time. All he needed was the best AC i could muster for the least amount of work all the amp i could fit in after that and a Vamp Morningstar of PG (i think) with a guild slot… I felt unkillable most of the time on Samyus back then. His Ac was always solid so i didn’t take a lot of damage what i did take i was able to heal back with a cleave/great cleave and when it was time to fight the boss i would haste up and go as big dps as i could. 9/10 times i could get them before they got me. If i were to do it again yep he would be a dwarf… They are just too good not to play right now.
