I'm building a Fighter/Seeker using Spiritbond. The ability requirements match up rather well. Spiritbond's +Str mod to AC with the one-handed fighter talent allows you a shield to boost AC very high for light armor, plus an amazing starting bonus for using one handed heavy thrown weapons...but that dang seeker push feature in Spirit's Rebuke...it would be nice to have a seeker that did not counter stickiness. Both seeker builds seem to rely on pushing. The power doesn't HAVE to be used of course...but then why have it?
You took paragon hybrid? huh. Cause spiritbond ac and fighter weapon talent are both hybrid talents. I'm not sure the AC is worth essentially wasting a paragon path personally (when the fighter ones are sooooo gooood).

just want to add my 2sp.
i am currently using a thrown wpn minotaur,armed with 2 javelins.
as a throwing seeker,i am going the rba route,but not all the way.some of my attacks are rba's(like guardian harrier).
guardian harrier is awesome,stand close to your defender,and either the target takes (str mod) dam for not moving 2 squares,or takes an opportunity attack from defender.works well.pure blue
for a seeker,javelins work well,have good range,and prof.weirdly,you're not prof in handaxes,one of the other basic hvy thrown wpns.and don't take light thrown wpns either,cos you're gonna concentrate on str,not dex.
i'm currently multiclassed into ranger(for wielding 2 javelins at once,for 2-wpn fighting/defence),and for the avalanche hurler pp,which is the best pp for throwing seekers.pure rba goodness.
some people would think twice about taking expertise,especially since spiritbond gives +1 to hit throwing.but it's still worth it.
throwing seekers do well in melee too.the powers for throwing seekers,can also be used in melee sometimes(harrier).
sorry if i've gone on a bit.hope i help some.
