I found that Hook Swords are a thing in 5e, named Shang Gou .
Id like to build a martial who uses them effectively to Disarm his foes and Either get in Sneak Attack or AoOs .
I am thinking either
A Brawler if I can Brawler Flurry with them and use unarmed strikes via kicks
Oh I didn't realize I put Male I think I meant melee ( Think I spelled it wrong in my opening post at the time ) but my tablet tried to helpand put Male xD .
But I'll have to mull over the replies I got x,x
I guess I mean in actual flexibility and technique with His sword
I mean I'd woukd like to keep away from being a caster, I like to be able to use Manuvers , truth be told if I could I'd use Hook Swords and go Disarming build
Looking play a Elfish character who is a young war veteran and aims to improve his Skills to Near Divine Status. He Barely survived the war and dose not want to feel weak or be in a position where his lack of skill or battle ability put others at risk.
He wants to be able to face any Non_Magical foe with no fear and even be a threat to all but the most seasoned males.
I'm looking to Build a Dex Based Swords man .
Should I focus on Two handing with a Elven curve blade or would using a elven thorn and leaf blade be doable.
Should I try for a powder attack or sneak attack build .
I like some actual SwordsmanShip and not just wak the enemies with my sword.
I would prefer grace & style with technique over brute strength and power
@Trokarr vigilante could be a chance to test my role-play Skills
@ Dragonchess Player: ya I could see that. I'll type it out and see how it looks
@ Matthew Morris: I want to Tso weapon fight with Shield and Axe but also want to trigger stuff like Shatter Defense. I'd go Ranger combat style at level 2 and so on what one would be a better choice ?
Ok Porbally going with The slayer Build Ryze suggested
I know no Build is perfect and I really have my heart set on Thunder and Fang and playing a Intimdation Build sounds cool
Is there any Statgies or tips I can get for combat ?
Been really wanting to play a Weapon and Shield user and I know I recently made a post about doing A Viking (Fighter) but I've realized two of my past 3 characters have been fighters and then I though slayer might work.
My feat list is based on if I'm Human But I'd like to see if playing a non-Human woukd be doable
LV1: WF Earth Breaker
Need to fill in the gap in my feat list
Could I ask for a sample feat list ?
Ok so I just found the Viking Archetype for Fighter and I like it
Problem is I can see my character being Either a Half Orc or Dwarf
So what would work better for a feat set up
Or sword (Axe) and Board
I've been itching to play a Strong and Agile Warrior who efficiently and effectively wields a pair of Axes. I had originally wanted to wield a pair of Battle Axes but soon realized it be like wielding a pair of longswords and that it be easier to wield a pair of hand Axes as they are basically what short- Swords or to long Swords but for Axes and still invoke the image I want for my character.
I am Stuck between Choosing Slayer or Brawler
I want some out of combat utility but I also want incombat utility such as Disarm and sunder and maybe even the ability to Trip. Damage is important but not to point of giving up all utility
Race can be any though I'd like to avoid that if doable , just Been getting a little bland playing human after human ?
I see my charactercas strong and fit but very Agile as well
I understand Dragons are very powerful and have well earn there reputation
I'd like to see what my classes options are.
I've recently retired a human fighter (used Archery) but for about 3 missions felt uses cause I could not hit the targets there Ac was stupid high (48+) and one was cause the dragon created a blizzard
I`D like to pay a Anti-Dragon swordsmen / Knight
I think there is a paladin for this.
Well I suppose I should say the main enemies are a Group of Dragons and 5herr are various Dragon like enemy as well as Demon's
Last time I was there we encountered a green Dragon and I could not Hit with a total roll of 49 .....
Truth be told I am not sure if the Dragon Ac was stupid High or we where just not suppose to fight him so GM plot armor for the Dragon but still I like to state the main enemies my group will face
Truth be told my main Trick Will to try to confused said powerful enemies to act like a stun on them so are main melee has a turn or 2 to hopefully wail on them
I have wealth of a 10th level character and am planning to buy a Heavy Cross bow with uo to +3 Bonus
I know just going the +3 can be good but was wondering if there is any note worthy + 1 or 2 Enchantment I could pick.
Are main enemies are Dragons and Demon's
Any suggestions on what extracts I should start the game knowing?
I'll take infusion by level 7 want to get at least 1 or 2 more types of Bomb .
Just have Regular Bombs (yes gave up and went to generic Alchemsit )
Took Precise Bombs at level 2
My feats are 1 PBS 3 Precise Shot
I am a Teifling if I did not mention that
STATS are what they are I can not switch them
15 INT / Race +2 = 17
Need Advice on my first 3 Feats and first two Discoveries
I known Feral Mutagen is a good one so likely my First choice for For my Discoveries but I am unsure of my 4Th level Discovery when I get there n
And not sure what feats I should use / Take
I am going to build a Invunerable Rager and flavor it around The Nemean lion
I of course want to be a race that is either A lion person or re-flavor to be lion like
I could also use advice on My nartual attack
I know Beast Totem (Greater Beast Totem) will be patircuarlly good cause of Pounce
I am starting a level 3 but could I get advice on my first 10 levels?
I have a level 3 Barbarian I'll be playing and I am unsure of what feats and rage powers I should take for the first 5 levels (planning too levels Ahead)
I am only starting with 12 STR so i sadly Don't quallfy for power Attack, My normal go to for Barbarians
Any Advice on my first 3 feats
Also Iam torn between Reckless Abandon and Superstitious what would be better
I have 19 Ac and 1 DR with resistance 5 Fire cold and electric
But not sure if I'll need more to hit, I can boost my STR to 18.
Planning on a Great Axe for a weapon .
Planning on playing a 3rd party class that comes with the feature Jotungrip and I'd like some input on what weapon I should wield and how I plan this Character out.
The class is Oni. From Of Stranger Bonds
I get a lot Barbarian Features
I know a club /spiked club is classic oni but I want too get some fun ideas
Sadly my strength is a Fearsome 12 so I don't even get to take power Attack yet
But any interesting idea for a weapon I can use with Jotungrip? Pazio and 3pp allowed
In this game we are playing Are selfs. Or as close to as possible as if we been transported to a fantasy world.
Well we are meeting this Saturday to discuss are stats.
I do know we are using this spread
Being now or us are very strong we mostly don't think any of us would be a full martial
But with those stats would would be possible
@ MrCharisma oh ok. I get ya . Ya I am a fan of polearms
@ VoodistMonk ah I see what you did there .I never heard off Incredible Heft is it a feat ? I guess I can look it up
@ Kurald Galain OK I can see that being cool.
@ Ryze Kuja sorry just asking questions so I learn..lol
I would probably start at level 5 like I do in most games
But how do I charge in full plate and strike 75 feet
I assume 30 feet move Charge is is 60 so reach weapon is and extra 5 feet so lunge 70 sorry I'm bad at math v,v
Actually could you give me an example of a Unchained Monk using a Fauchard
I like the idea of using Aoo and cleave and being able to use Stunning Fist via Asetic style
@ DeathlessOne, ya it loos cool seems Defensive but really strong
Rangers are cool but I have fallen more for slayers since converting from 3.5 to pathfinder 1e
Barbarian are fun but I woukd like to contribute if only a little out of combat. Either scouting or something.
@ Mark Hoover 330
@ Ryze Kuja
Those do look cool in my mind p. How would you do a Great Axe / half Great Hammer?
Also that dirty trick brawler looks seems cool
Also Dirty tricks have always seem nifty. Being able to debuff as a martial seems cool and I am guessing as long asi can reason it with the Gm I can use it on a lot more than I can Trip. Such kicking dirt in eyes are striking a male creatures gooey bits lol
hey woukd there be away to make a dirty fightimg brawler with Alchemical uses like vmc Alxhemsit . I like the idea of using alchemical stuff / use stuff like caltrops in a Grease area o.o
May I ask what feats you went with ?
The build some instresting to me
Not sure class but want a pure Martial no magic out side of his equipment
Two handed or crit fisher would ever yields more Damage over all
Good Initiative and a Bump to speed To close the distance between him and his foes
This can be a Multi class character.
I'd like his saves to be decent (Maybe Half Orc for the tattoo)
Weapon Thinking something I cab two hand or A good crit weapon
Anything Else to make him efficient killer
I want to play a character that uses a polearm effectively and Dose more than just wack his foes with a long sick. Be a proactive Defender type. I'm just not sure what class at mid levels would be best.
Basically I'm trying to figure out if there are any classes who Features from either the main class or an Archtype would complement a polearm user.
Also for class I'd like to stay purely martial
Ya I guess a wooden shield with this 8s kinda sillyBut I picture a round Shield with a Skull on it mouth shut but can open
Dode oversized hand allow me to wield bigger weapons?
Yep That's about normal starting for my group. Only once did I get to play a level 20 character...Twas Fun lol
For Magic whatever would give me a winter / Storm Theme
More the armor but I'd like 5o at least use some sort of Axe
Are there single Edge Great Axes ?
I'd say he is more of Defender getting Between the threat and the more squishy Parry members
Faceless Enforcer Vigilante looks fun
.He'll be Level 5 to start
I kinda wanted a cold theme for an undertone for this character
Damerrich seems like a good fit. I want him to have a task to Carry out that is passed down from Mentor to Student
My immediate thoughts would be that the character be Human (I'm very partial to Humans. It's probably a failing on my part) and use either the Fighter or Paladin class. I'd also suggest going through the lists of archetypes for each to further flesh out the character. There are a LOT of them, but I think it will be worth your time to dive into them.
Any way To Wield Either A war Axe / Great Axe in one hand or A large one in two?
I might for go thr shield but am not sure .
Also am cosmidering if Fighter if I should grab A VMC Since if I'm a human fighter I'll have plenty of feats....
A Tall Figure, Covered from Head To Toe in jet Black Full Plate , Topped with a Horned Helm
This Breif Description Desribes an Image I've had in mind for a while
Only problem is I don't know It's Race or class
I want him To be Intimating and not on purpose.
The Reason for Wearing the The armor that many find Frighting is cause its been passed down from Mentor to student .
I want him to be good in battle but award in social situation as he naturally comes off as intimidating . But he is sincerely good hearted, and fights for the people, , even if they run when he comes to town
I need Race and class suggestions, well as idea to give him more personality
nd I love Arcs Character
For those who don't know but want a quick run Down
Arc is A lit Skeleton who is like a cross between a paladin and A arcane caster .
Well not sure if any Race can make me a boney hero . Something that tends to me more feared so I can Roleplay the don't judge a Book by its cover trope / Try to keep my identity a secret as much as possible.
I like to play A race thatill make me seem big (Abit big for a medium creature) further make me look threatening, though I tend to be a good fella
Class any that can give me stuff like break Curse and other simular spells but give me some Arcane spells mostly blasting spells
Also needs to be pretty proficient in Using a great sword
I would like to map out the first 8 levels to see what can done
Lastly needs to be good .....really would love to be Chatoic good
