Hi, i am currently playing a rageblood barbarian in a campaign where our only defender left. We do get by, but i feel like i would contribute better to the party with a defender instead of another striker (i nearly act as a subpar defender now anyways). So, i read a little up on swordmages, and I will try to give it a shot ;)
This is what I came up with, but there's a lot of things here I am uncertain about, especially feats. Am I missing some? Should I get more feats that boosts my swordburst? I would also appreciate any advice on items. I haven't added any yet, because I will need to get them from my DM.
EDIT: I have edited my character a little, but I am still looking for advice and tips.
I added some items, but not really sure if they are good, or if there are other items that would fit me better (not talked to my DM yet about items, so I expect I'll probably have to see most of them go).
