Abilities

Ability scores shown are with racial adjustments. We bought a pre-racial 18 to improve accuracy and AC and reflex defense. The progression strategy is fairly simple, start out bumping intelligence and charisma, until paragon tier when we want to bring wisdom up to 15 in order to qualify for psion implement expertise. At epic tier, resume bumping intelligence and charisma.

Starting Ability Scores:
  • Str: 8 (-1)
  • Con: 10 (+0)
  • Dex: 10 (+0)
  • Int: 20 (+5)
  • Wis: 11 (+0)
  • Chr: 16 (+3)

Final Ability Scores:
  • Str: 10 (+0)
  • Con: 12 (+1)
  • Dex: 12 (+1)
  • Int: 28 (+9)
  • Wis: 15 (+2)
  • Chr: 24 (+9)

Alternatives:
If you don't care about psion implement expertise, you'll want to continue to bump charisma at paragon tier (instead of wisdom) and probably switch the starting scores for dexterity and wisdom. That way, you can have a slightly higher stealth and initiative at paragon tier.

Alternatively, you can select the 16, 16, 13, 11, 10, 8 ability array if you want to sacrifice the 20 intelligence for a higher charisma and other abilities. This build's disciplines don't rely heavily on charisma, but you may be interested if you've picked up the some alternative disciplines that do (e.g. dishearten).
