The Bodyguard

Multi-mark to face(use your face)palm your enemies.

 Multi-mark to face(use your face and armor)palm your enemies.

Description: This build is compleletly dependent upon the Beguiling Strands power in Essential and tries to maxize its use with a Defender. With Dabbling Defender and Versatile Master it becomes a 5*5 party friendly marking power that targets will, and pushes 3, which is very helpful for a controller to land that burst 1/2 power (e.g. Dishearten). With AIP and silversword and group defense everone marked by this power takes -2 to ab and -6 (-2 with mark, -1 mark of warding, -2 psylock, -1 group defense) to attack others without inlcuding the Paladin.

This build could be further enhanced by taking Beguling Enchantment at lv 16, at which time enemies marked by the Strands would also take -4 to hit the chaladin. White Lotus like hinderance could be added to make it stickier.

It is not one of the best defenders (due to its lack of damage) but would be fun to play if the party focuses on debuffing. Like a Psion with Dishearten (an extra -5 around),  a Taclord to boost the AB and a Rogue (with another -2).

Pros: Party (Especially controllers) friendly, good mark (-2/4/6) to attacks rolls. Decent Defense. Could still mass Divine Sanction with its powers. Some Chaladin benefits (Lay on hands, Divine Mettel, Divine Challenge);

Cons: Meager damage. Two Imm attacks is not enough. Feat Intensive.

Variation 1:
PP Travller's Harlequin, MC Fighter, Polearm Momentum. It only requires an additional feat and a glaive to work. On the other hand, the AC would be 4 points lower than the current build.


Variation 2:
Val Bard, PP War Chanter. The same array of feats (and MC Pal). It works as an off defender/controller/leader that hand out large bonues of AB (Con Modifier) when AP, and the Dex could go to Con instead (Con 20) to take advantage of it.


Variation 3:
Chaladin Hybrid Fighter, mass mark, and OA with a Cha based MBA. Might waste one at will, but the rest of the fighter side would be stances anyway. Polearm Momentum.

Any comment and suggestion?

With Concealment and Cover for blast and burst, it's  literrally another +2,  AC:  51 Fort: 51 Reflex: 48 Will: 51
With Fey Warrior's Boots & Cloak of Translocation, and if an enemy misses, +2 AC and Reflex, making it harder to hit. And if they atacks the others, they will eat the mark .
Once per day +3 to all (Divine Aegis.


Mark:
Show
At Will: Divine Challenge Close burst 5, minor, 1
Encounter: Call of Challenge Close burst 3, minor, all
At Will: Beguiling Strands Close Blast 5, Standard, all hit


Effects:
Show
DC and DS: -3 to attack others (-1 mark of warding, -2 mark), weaken, 18 radiant
Strand mark: -5 to attack others (-3 mark, -2 psylock), -4 to attack the Paladin (-2 psylock, -2 beguilingle chamr), somewhat like an at will weaken with a little damage, pushes 3 and party friendly.


Defensive Powers:
Show
Healing:
5/day Lay on hands, target 2 allies, heals 57 and 57, and the Pal heals 28 itself. So it's like surgeless healing minor 76, can could be done 5 times a day.

Divine Mette
Every encounter burst 10, minor, all makes sv with +9.

Once you saves, all ally gains +9 to sv.
Once per day,  all in burst 5 gains resistance 20 to all
Resist 5


Offensive Shining Armors (that blinds)
Show
2 encoutner imm interrupt to blind a target.
2 dailies to blind several targets
1 daily to weaken and 1 encoutner to force the enemy to only attack it.
1 daily to add 9 to all damage rolls



Lv 30 statistics added, it's basically a chaladin that weakens (whether literally weakens or mechanically weakens with the -5 to hit penalty) and blinds its enemies with its shining armor (maybe a sword also) and a solemn face.

It's feat intensive (that I need to drop group defense and can not get that +9 sv on lay on hands one) and item intensive, though it would be fun to party it with a taclord and say a psion :3

A few thoughts:
drop con to 18 and raise wis to 22, use ring of tenacious will and gains extra 2 surges instead of +1 item sv

Shield of Fellowship seems great if there is a feat slot in the build to allow the lay on hands bestow THP, yet the build it self has already eaten a lot.

The ab of strands might need more accuracy.


Any comment and suggestion would really be appreciated.
