Looking for character creation for Lair Assault.
8th level Revenant Blackguard for Lair Assault.
All ideas are welcomed.. good or bad..
Thanks in advance.
Step 1: community.wizards.com/go/thread/view/758...
Step 2: Build own rough draft character.
Step 3: Post results and request help tweaking and suggestions.
Step 4: Receive actual help instead of snark.
If you're open to bad suggestions, then I propose playing a Blackguard
@ Planeswalker - I've read the build you just posted, I guess I shoud have been more specific..
I was looking for a Lair Assault Build that has been tested rather than use an opt-character.
@ erachima - You pretty much answered my question, I will be moving on to something else.
Thanks for both the replys.
I disagree that blackguard (well.. hybrid blackguard at least) is bad for lair assault.
Pixie blackguard|executioner with bless weapon and a charge kit can bring some serious pain. Take majestic halo as your D1, and now you're pretty much a full paladin too.
With the slight problem that a Warlock|Executioner is downright better.
For multiple encounters, yeah. For a signle encounter lair assault? No. Warlock has more support, but you don't have enough feats in heroic to take advantage of it.
Blackguard has got +8 damage with CA (trivial to get) against any enemy. It can get another 1d6 from its U2 or +cha to yourself and all allies with its U6. Warlock has 2d6 with a feat (ave. 7). Warlock has better encounter powers, but encounters are weighted less in this format.
And the dailies? Warlock is a little superior in this regard, but I think in total, it comes out as a wash.
The current Lair Assault season severely limits the options of a lot of builds, because players may only be drow, or revenants with a past life of drow. That nixes the Pixie Hybrid Blackguard|Executioner, and without Pixie charge cheese, the Blackguard|Executioner loses a lot of steam.
There was another thread trying to explore the options for a Lair Assault avenger, running up against the same issue that avengers lose a lot of steam if you're race-restricted like the current LA is.
If your going to use revenent cheese, you might as well pick a weaker class.
I ended up toying with this idea anyways and this is what I came up with for a single-shot Lair Assault run.
