Sorcerer//Paladin/Daggermaster/Sage of Ages

Goal and Tactics:

This is meant to be a crit oriented single target DPR build. Crit rates are improved through Bless Weapon (Salves of Power + Morninglord providing radiant vulnerability), Sorcerous Flux, and Keeper's Prescience. Crit damage is stacked through feats and items and helped immensely by Fury of the Storm. Extra attacks on a critical hit are gained through Ruthless Spellfury and Two Weapon Opening. Divine Challenge and White Lotus Master Riposte ensure a tad more damage. I haven't written a full build, but I imagine such a character would focus on encounters and dailies that add survivability and utility.

Disclaimer: I feel like this work is at least presentable, but I haven't been optimizing (or even playing) for about a year, so I'm sure there are mistakes. I'll fix them as they are brough to my attention.

Modified Hit Calculations

Note: Crit and hit rates are calculated assuming one extra enemy and the PC are in the AoE. Crit rate is

*1-(x^n)*where

*x*is the rate of not critting (85%) and

*n*is the number of attack rolls made. Miss rate is

the same, but with

*x*representing miss chance (15%).

.85 non-crit ^ 4 = .522 non-crit = 47.8% crit chance

.15 miss ^ 4 = .16% miss chance

1 - .478 crit chance - .0005 miss chance = 52.04% hit chance
