Ok I' am curious to this question i looked it up but cant find a answer. I wanna fusterate people a tad with dice rolls. I get to be lvl 11 with three lvl 10 items a level 11 nd 12 as well. I' am looking for the most dice you can get rolled lol I just noticed that a friend said you cant roll more then 5 dice a turn and I know thats been proven wrong. So any links or help be awesome. I figured a bard/warlock or something like that lol I have no idea what gets most dice.
Honestly, I have no idea why you would want to do this. Your goal seems to be to piss people off, and that's not the point of D&D. If you had a good reason then I'd suggest you go to charop, but an unedited repost will just turn up a bunch of unhelpful posts.

Additionally, it's possible to roll ten dice per turn quite easily, probably even more. A twin striking avenger can get 6 in one standard action, 8 at level 21. And that's not even trying.

Stop.

Stop right there.

You.  Out of the pool.  If the only reason you want to do something is to frustrate other people at the table, you're just being an ass and thinking your jollies are more important.  If you think frustrating other people or spoiling their fun is entertaining, go find another hobby.  We don't want you here.
Another day, another three or four entries to my Ignore List.

If he really wants to roll too many dice, go to GURPs. :P

On the serious side Salla's completely  right, don't even go to the event because it won't be fun ,for you or for anyone else.

I think he might be playing in some sort of event, anyone I agree. If I was running said event and he did this, I would probably go out of my way to kill his PC and then drop hints there was no reason for him to stay , I wouldn't wanna deal with this kind of crap lol.

Bring out the save vs. death.
Wizard's first rule: People are stupid.
Wait, I just got a better idea for a time waster than a build that rolls too much. Just use your unlimited free actions to talk forever, no investment needed!
I love you guys!
Here are the PHB essentia, in my opinion:
  • Three Basic Rules (p 11)
  • Power Types and Usage (p 54)
  • Skills (p178-179)
  • Feats (p 192)
  • Rest and Recovery (p 263)
  • All of Chapter 9 [Combat] (p 264-295)
A player needs to read the sections for building his or her character -- race, class, powers, feats, equipment, etc. But those are PC-specific. The above list is for everyone, regardless of the race or class or build or concept they are playing.
I love you guys!



We make life interesting! :D

Not sure why your laughing specially since,you were proven wrong.
you can get to 12-14 ish but, again I see no good reason for you to do this so I see no reason to tell you how to do it
Insulting someones grammar on a forum is like losing to someone in a drag race and saying they were cheating by having racing stripes. Not only do the two things not relate to each other (the logic behind the person's position, and their grammar) but you sound like an idiot for saying it (and you should, because its really stupid )
4E D&D is not the place for rolling many dice. If it was an event I was running you would likely be penalized for unsportsman-like conduct.

If you truley want a game where you roll many dice I would try to find a high level 3.5 game, or take up another hobby like Warhammer.
I wanna fusterate people a tad with dice rolls.

Played a campain today with 5 others plus our DM and got to roll many many dice lol. As for it not fun,our DM thought it was awesome to see I put effort into making the game fusterating lol. We made jokes and everything and afterwards people were like "You rolled alot of dice but you did some nice damage and healed pretty good as well."
 So lets recap everyone liked the idea,even the other 4 tables that got to see what I was doing. Thats around 20+ people total. Almost everyone said it was fun to watch and awesome that i did status damage to everything and healed alot of the time. I was even getting pointers to make more dice rolls. So seems all you 4E players are just to lazy to think and want the 4E Gen to make characters for you.

First of all, I'm laughing becuase you are acting like a child, gleeful that the DM got pissed off and smugly remarking that he is "not gonna be dm much longer". That's just immature. Also that remark about us needing a life bcause we take the game too seriously. 


It sounds like they were pissed off that you rolled the dice but in the end you were useful. You rolling that many dice dosen't mean you are a damage beast etc. Aside from the obvious possibility of you  making this up, you went there to frustrate people. It didn't work. That has nothing to do with you and everything to do with them, we weren't "proven wrong".

FYI, I don't use the character gen, and how does not going into a game with the intention to make other people mad equal lazy? More like mature.

Our group has a barbarian with a mordenkrad who rolls obscene amounts of dice when he piles on.  It's neat.

Until he has to add them up and reroll all the ones because of the brutal.  Then we all start wandering off to find drinks and snacks and take short vacations and go to timeshare seminars.

And did I mention I can add his dice in about 15 seconds where it takes him over a minute?

It's not so neat, after all.  I can actually go to anydice.com and type in a forumula for his rolls faster than he can add it.  (sigh)   

On the other hand, at least he doesn't take as long to add up his rolls as my wife takes just to decide which attack power she's going to use each round.  /Henny Youngman DM               

OD&D, 1E and 2E challenged the player. 3E challenged the character, not the player. Now 4E takes it a step further by challenging a GROUP OF PLAYERS to work together as a TEAM. That's why I love 4E.

"Your ability to summon a horde of celestial superbeings at will is making my ... BMX skills look a bit redundant."

"People treat their lack of imagination as if it's the measure of what's silly. Which is silly." - Noon

"Challenge" is overrated.  "Immersion" is usually just a more pretentious way of saying "having fun playing D&D."

"Falling down is how you grow.  Staying down is how you die.  It's not what happens to you, it's what you do after it happens.”

How many dice can you get

Next time, try all of them!

(bonus points if you get that reference)

I have a thief build that rolls about 10 dice individually on a charge.  It's easy for me to add up damage because all of the damage is minimum 3 (thanks to Devastating Ki Focus), so I just look over the dice, sub in 3s when I see 1s and 2s and add it up. 
I like English.

Some people apparently don't.

The only status damage I see is self-inflicted.
I'll answer this question, mostly because my group is amused by the ridiculousness of my opening attack every encounter (I can only do this once an encounter)

Class: Assassin|Seeker\Rogue (level 13)
Encounter power 2d8 + Attack Finesse 2d8 + Venom Hand Assassin 2d8 + Assassin Stike 5d10 + Sneak Attack 3d6.
6d8+5d10+3d6 + my d20 of course, and if I need it I'll throw the d4 for Adept's Insight.

I can roll a max of 16 die on my opening attack. It happens once an encounter, everyone laughs, I kill whatever I hit, and we move on. I don't do this to annoy anyone, we play a highly optimized game so everyone is just amused by the extremity of it.
There was a thread about this a good while ago (year at least).  It was over 80 at once (possibly over 100), but that was lvl 30.

my builds
F-111 Interdictor Long (200+ squares) distance ally teleporter. With some warlord stuff. Broken in a plot way, not a power way.

Thought Switch Higher level build that grants upto 14 attacks on turn 1. If your allies play along, it's broken.

Elven Critters Crit op with crit generation. 5 of these will end anything. Broken.

King Fisher Optimized net user.  Moderate.

Boominator Fun catch-22 booming blade build with either strong or completely broken damage depending on your reading.

Very Distracting Warlock Lot's of dazing and major penalties to hit. Overpowered.

Pocket Protector Pixie Stealth Knight. Maximizing the defender's aura by being in an ally's/enemy's square.

Yakuza NinjIntimiAdin: Perma-stealth Striker that offers a little protection for ally's, and can intimidate bloodied enemies. Very Strong.

Chargeburgler with cheese Ranged attacks at the end of a charge along with perma-stealth. Solid, could be overpowered if tweaked.

Void Defender Defends giving a penalty to hit anyone but him, then removing himself from play. Can get somewhat broken in epic.

Scry and Die Attacking from around corners, while staying hidden. Moderate to broken, depending on the situation.

Skimisher Fly in, attack, and fly away. Also prevents enemies from coming close. Moderate to Broken depending on the enemy, but shouldn't make the game un-fun, as the rest of your team is at risk, and you have enough weaknesses.

Indestructible Simply won't die, even if you sleep though combat.  One of THE most abusive character in 4e.

Sir Robin (Bravely Charge Away) He automatically slows and pushes an enemy (5 squares), while charging away. Hard to rate it's power level, since it's terrain dependent.

Death's Gatekeeper A fun twist on a healic, making your party "unkillable". Overpowered to Broken, but shouldn't actually make the game un-fun, just TPK proof.

Death's Gatekeeper mk2, (Stealth Edition) Make your party "unkillable", and you hidden, while doing solid damage. Stronger then the above, but also easier for a DM to shut down. Broken, until your DM get's enough of it.

Domination and Death Dominate everything then kill them quickly. Only works @ 30, but is broken multiple ways.

Battlemind Mc Prone-Daze Protecting your allies by keeping enemies away. Quite powerful.

The Retaliator Getting hit deals more damage to the enemy then you receive yourself, and you can take plenty of hits. Heavy item dependency, Broken.

Dead Kobold Transit Teleports 98 squares a turn, and can bring someone along for the ride. Not fully built, so i can't judge the power.

Psilent Guardian Protect your allies, while being invisible. Overpowered, possibly broken.

Rune of Vengance Do lot's of damage while boosting your teams. Strong to slightly overpowered.

Charedent BarrageA charging ardent. Fine in a normal team, overpowered if there are 2 together, and easily broken in teams of 5.

Super Knight A tough, sticky, high damage knight. Strong.

Super Duper Knight Basically the same as super knight with items, making it far more broken.

Mora, the unkillable avenger Solid damage, while being neigh indestuctable. Overpowered, but not broken.

Swordburst Maximus At-Will Close Burst 3 that slide and prones. Protects allies with off actions. Strong, possibly over powered with the right party.

Just a quick glance I can go Half Orc Bard/Rogue/Ranger/Assassin and get something like

1w attack + 1w Furious Assault + 1w Lesser Dimensional Step + 2d6 Echoing Weapon + 1d10 Chilled Blade + 2d6+6 Assassin MC Shroud + 2d8 Practiced Killer + 2d6 Ranger Multi + 3d6 Rogue Multi +

With a Rapier I get 5d8 + 9d6 + 1d10 at lvl 11. That's 15d.

With a Rapier I get 5d8 + 9d6 + 1d10 at lvl 11. That's 15d.



Replace the Rapier with a Spiked Chain....

1w (2d4) + 1w (2d4) Furious Assault + 1w (2d4) LDS + 2d6 + 1d10 + 2d6+6 + 2d8 + 2d6 + 3d6

6d4 + 9d6 + 1d10 + 2d8 + 6 = 18d. 

Let's throw in a Horned Helm for another d6 when we charge, plus Surprising Charge for another 1w.  That would bring our total up to 21 dice. 

And, of course, the Death Dealer's AP feature grants +2 damage *per die* of damage being dealth.... so make sure you hit with that AP charge with this build... that's an extra 42 points of damage! 

Oh!  It's +2 to each damage die til the start of your next turn ... It won't be quite as high on the next attack, but it's still an impressive number.
If you want to be annoying, just choose the Seer theme...and decide the fate of your party members.

...and you get to roll more dice....whee

This.  I am surprised that theme made it in, what with all of the "OH NOES!  HE'S AFFECTING MY CHARACTER!" sentiment lately.
Just play an Artificer with Simulacrum and use it on yourself. :D
