Yeah agreed lvl4 onwards is pants. Umbral agent also gets shadow jump but that's more caster designed and evil. Not too fussed about shadow jump,it was just the shadow I was interested (for flanking)
Role is melee support as we gave one full out twf falcata slayer, a ranged rogue, a reach cleric/envoy in group and I wasn't interested in playing a caster.

ooh, shadow walker looks good. I will have a quick look at that, yeah I agree that the shadow is quite OP and they get it at lvl 3.

Wow, thats pretty awesome :D
If I didn't need to be more melee focused that would be ideal.
Was considering trading out panther style feats for imp/greater trip and vicious stomp. though not so sure. maybe get those feats later
Oh nice, that's the style I was going for, its why I put in a level of monk for Improved Unarmed, would you rate the style feats or are there better uses of those 3 feat slots?

I'd probably advice slayer, with the 1500 gold ioum stone which turns one exotic weapon into a martial. That solves using the fighting fan. If slayer doesn't interest you, could do same thing with brawler or unchained rogue and delve into shadow dancer when appropriate for you.
I like the slayer class, but wanted to go more dex build for more sneak/acrobatic/ninja aspects - Slayer is my favourite class :DFollowed by Swashbuckler (who doesn't love swashbuckling!)
If I was going Str Build I would have hands down gone Slayer route till lvl 6 and then 3 lvls of dancer, then 2 hander and Spring attack chop.
After a tragic sacrifice by my previous character I get to create a Lvl 9 Character for our current game.
I have a concept and a build (mostly) Just need help with gear/feats
I'd like ultimately to end up with a stealthy melee character that uses a fighting fan, also a pet shadow which is pretty swish.
Here's what I have so far:
AC:10+2(dodge)+5(dex)+3(wis)+1(Deflection)=21(+4 mage armour)
Fighting Fan:+18/13 or +16/+16/+11 Flurry Dmg:1d4+11(16)19-20*3 crit
Traits:Freed Slave(+1 Fort), Carefully Hidden (+1 Will)
Class:Monk-Kata master, Swashbuckler-Whirling Dervish, Shadow Dancer.
Levels and Feats
Gear (currently) 46k Max
That's what I have, never used the panther style feats before and wondered how effective they really are? Kata master is there so my unarmed counts towards swashbuckler finesse, also GM has allowed the use of fighting fan with original monk as unchained gets all Monk weapons as standard.
Thoughts, changes and ideas welcome.
