PvM Melee Build - Ranger 35 / Paladin 3 / Monk 2

Post by Yunim »

This DPS build is min-maxed for two specific boss runs, although it can also be used on other runs too.
Consider this build as a self-buffing replacement for a Figh14/WM25/Monk1. If you make this build then there is no need to make a Figh14/WM25/Monk1 due to the overlap in which runs they excel at.

A Monk2/Rang35/Pal3 (starting with Monk at level 1) has similar stats but is weaker than this build on the two runs that it specialises in.

The ending abilities (32STR/16CHA) can easily be changed to 30STR/18CHA, 28STR/20CHA, or 26STR/22CHA. However the chosen ability scores work best for the two runs the build is made for.

The build has up to 10 Favored Enemy feats. The 4 pre-epic feats must be Favored Enemy but any of the 6 epic feats can be replaced with Epic Toughness.
You MUST take Favored Enemy: Outsiders and Favored Enemy: Undead or there's no point in making this build. You don't need to take them as soon as possible (as the build below does) but you must have them by level 40. The other 2-8 races are left up to you.

The build has 166 skill points to spend by level 40.
I recommend a minimum of 18 Lore (17 Lore after INT modifier), 15 Tumble (14 Tumble after DEX modifier), and 1 point in all skills that require training to use.

With +12 STR, +12 CON, +12 CHA, +20 kamas, and +6 AC items, it will have the following:
AB: 30 (BAB) + 17 (STR) + 4 (Feats) + 20 (AB Bonus) + 2 (Bane Of Enemies) - 2 (Dual-wielding) = +71 (+69 with Flurry)
AC: 10 (Base) - 1 (DEX) + 3 (Tumble) + 24 (AC Bonus) + 4 (Haste) = 40
HP: 396 (Base) + 280 (CON) = 676 (796 with Epic Toughness 6)
Fortitude: 23 (Base) + 7 (CON) + 9 (CHA) = 39
Reflex: 16 (Base) - 1 (DEX) + 9 (CHA) = 24
Will: 16 (Base) + 0 (WIS) + 9 (CHA) = 25
