Built me a dual Great Sword wielding fighter


Pathfinder First Edition General Discussion


Just wanted to share that. He takes a bit to start getting good, and has a bit of trouble hitting until level 14-ish. But at lvl 20 his dpr is 283.22. Fighter 18 (two weapon arch), barbarian 2 (titan mauler).

It seems like the original post is missing, but that won't stop me from asking:

Why? I once tried to compare a Half-Orc Ranger wielding a Orc Double Axe with a Dwarven Ranger wielding 2 Dwarven waraxes. Guess what? Half-Orc wins.

You'll get a -4/-4 penalty at least. (Not sure about using a greatsword 1 handed, though I'm pretty sure it's impossible)

So I'll ask again, why?


Class - any

Use Wand of Enlarge then get him to pick up the medium sized Great Swords.

Done.

or

Use Wand of Shrink item - wield 2 small Great Swords.

You might wish to consider barbarian (titan mauler) 2/fighter (either mobile fighter or two-weapon warrior) 2/ranger 6/fighter +10. The big benefit of ranger 6 is to take Improved Two-Weapon Fighting without needing a 17+ Dex, allowing you to focus more on Str; most of the Two-Weapon Fighting feats only require a 15+ Dex. Favored Enemy or Ranger's Focus (guide archetype) are nice, too. The ability to cast lead blades on yourself is just icing on the cake.

I'll think about it, but he ends up being pretty beefy. He takes no negatives for TWF-ing great swords. The -2 for jutongrip gets alleviated by weapon focus, and the -4 for the TWF becomes a -2 from the two weapon warrior abilities, which later on alleviate the rest of the TWF penalties.

But I'll look at the other two options and compare them together.

Also, no original post, just felt like sharing.

I did this in 3.5 with a dwarven barb/battlerager/fighter.
Took a while to get there, but he could do it. Course in 3.5 it only took 2 feats: Monkey grip and Oversize offhand weapon. I just ate the -4 penalty.

-4/-4? Try -6/-6 [-4/-4 because the off hand isn't a light weapon and -2/-2 because you are using a two handed weapon in one hand.]
