Interesting houserules ... but they cause Knowable problems.
Basically, the inherent bonuses put you somewhere around
2 to 4 levels behind a normal wishlist magic items game.
And you have no real guarantee of any item combos.

You wanna take an Itemless build and consider the cookies
from heaven (your DM) a temporary blessing.
idk wtf Mul and/or Warden , to do with itemless.

5E mini- SRD available now in HTML here:


Wardens need help from items to be sticky and tough past paragon.  If you only get 1 magic item, I'd take a cloak of the walking wounded.  As a warden you aren't super sticky outside of forms, and much past low paragon it becomes REALLY tough to lock down monsters with just that.  A warden's main claim to fame is that they are, hands down, the toughest class you can find to kill.  May as well play up to it, rather than getting a little damage boost.

Also, you want to MC fighter, and you may want to look into resilience of stone.
