I’m looking for some epic destiny/build advice for an Eladrin Taclord. The character is a hybrid Assault Swordmage with the Spiral Tactician PP. Eladrin Swordmage Advance and the Assault Aegis provide extra free/out-of-turn attacks to keep up damage potential while still doing much of what a tradition TacLord does. The character also has the frost package.
I considered three EDs: Planeshaper, Warmaster, and Winter Sovereign but decided on Planeshaper largely because of the ability to recharge Fey Step right away at level 21 through Ultimate Adaption. This would provide an extra use of Fey Step per encounter which means an additional ESA attack and another round of Feywild Protection.
Other than the 26th level utility from Warmaster, the PP seems underwhelming, as surprise is situational and Shock and Awe generates a benefit essentially every other encounter and on another character’s next turn as opposed to the every encounter MBA I would gain from Ultimate Adaption on Fey Step. The question here is about the U26 & CF30 working off action points. I’ve seen some posts recently on gaining more action points than normal so can I work something into this character to make these powers useable more often?
For Winter Sovereign, Lingering Cold could provide a higher vulnerability than Lasting Frost but it takes a round to set up and requires some powers with status effects to save against which the character really doesn’t have (currently just Spiral of Fey Death). I was having a hard time quantifying the overall damage bump I might generate from the features/powers of this ED. If someone has experience playing this ED and please comment.
Finally, are there any other ways to recharge Fey Step I can add on to this character?
