All other levels add +1 constitution.

33. Epic Damage Reduction II
35. Epic Spell: Hellball (minimum 32 spellcraft)
36. Epic Damage Reduction III

43 Concentration, 43 Discipline, 35 Heal, 41 Spellcraft, 42 Spot, 15 Tumble

Notes:
• AC doesn’t matter for this build - it’s all about stacking as much HP as possible.
• Saves are all adequate with the correct gear.
• You can choose elf as your race to improve your ability to spot. Skip blooded on level 1 if you want to do so, but you will
• Spell penetration feats are not a core part of the build. This is my personal preference to have a little more upside against SR monks.

WIS: 18
INT: 14
CHA: 8

Add +1 wisdom every time.

Leveling Progression
1. Toughness, Cleric Domains: Magic, Lightning*
*You may change lightning out for something else. I strongly recommend keeping magic, however, for ice storm and mage armor.

• Great saves.
• Maximum DC for evocation spells will usually allow you to find a weakness in other builds’ saves.
• You can cast Ice Storm and Chain Lightning to deal damage should you run into a build with good saves.
• Zen archery, with buffs, gives you 65 AB to ping low AC targets with. The downside is being unable to have two items in each hand for stat boosts so you have to careful when switching to a bow.
• You may choose to take one level of rogue for UMD. If you do, you will lose out on the epic spell focus feat and have to reorder them accordingly.

40. Epic Toughness

** You can drop skill focus spot for improved critical for your weapon of choice.

Skills:
Discipline 43, Intimidate 4, Spot 43, Tumble 40, UMD 20
36 skill points left over to allocate as you see fit. May wish to increase UMD for hellball staff, or choose heal to able to save yourself in a pinch.

Notes:
• 76 AB with +17 weapon, 79 AB with buffs.
• 81 AC standing, 82 with mage armor. Can go up to 92 AC with improved expertise.
• 708 HP – decent, but nothing to brag about.
• Saves: 46 fortitude, 40 reflex, 16 will. You need to use clarity potions to keep yourself from getting abused by DC mages.
• If there’s a mage around you can have enough spot to easily deal with sneaks. If there’s no mage, you will have to use a combination of scrolls and true sight robe to boost it.
• Damage is alright thanks to x4 multiplier on handaxe but nothing exceptional.
• Great mix of defense and offense that can stay alive through most situations with proper play/support.
• If you have a bard on your team, use Improved Knockdown like crazy. You will be able to make it land.
• Even if there is no bard, try your luck and use IKD. Might catch someone not boosting discipline off guard.

2. Mobility
3. Knockdown
4. Expertise
6. Great Fortitude, Weapon Focus: Greatsword

32. Epic Toughness
33. Great Strength
36. Great Strength
39. Epic Weapon Specialization: Greatsword
40. Epic Toughness

Skills:
Discipline 43, Intimidate 4, UMD 40, 15 Tumble
72 points to distribute as you choose. Heal is a good choice, or try to make listen work.
DO NOT add more into tumble. You want the lowest possible AC.

Notes:
• 76 AB with +17 weapon and gear. 79 with buffs.
• AC – the lower the better.Why? Because, you want to wear the Twisted Leather Armor that gives 2% Chaos Shield on hit.
• Your job is in the WZ is pretty simple. Smash face.
• 796 HP – solid by any measure you can take a good amount of punishment before having to run.
• Saves – well, these are dogshit. You will have enough for fortitude, but everything else is a joke. You will have to be very careful around DC casters.
• Just like with the dexterous weapon master don’t be afraid to use improved knockdown. If it catches someone, they’re likely going to be very dead.

SR Monk

32 Monk / 7 Weapon Master / 1 Shadow Dancer

Levels 1-15: Monk
Levels 16-20: Weapon Master
Level 21: Monk
Levels 22-23: Weapon Master
Levels 24-38: Monk
Level 39: Shadowdancer
Level 40: Monk

Requires Lawful alignment for monk
Human

Starting Stats
STR: 16
DEX: 13
CON: 16
WIS: 8
INT: 13
CHA: 8

Add +1 strength every time.

Leveling Progression
1. Dodge, Mobility
3. Weapon Proficiency: Martial
6. Weapon Focus: Greatsword
9. Spring Attack
12. Expertise
15. Whirlwind Attack
Take 4 points of intimidate for weapon master prerequisite.
16. Weapon of Choice: Greatsword
18. Blind Fight
21. Improved Spell Resistance
24. Improved Spell Resistance
27. Improved Spell Resistance
30. Improved Spell Resistance
32. Improved Spell Resistance
33. Improved Spell Resistance
36. Improved Spell Resistance
37. Improved Spell Resistance
39. Epic Weapon Focus: Greatsword

Skills:
43 Discipline, 43 Heal, 43 Hide, 43 Move Silently, 40 Tumble
26 points leftover.

Notes:
• This is a straight cheese build that counters low AC targets and mages.
• Any build with spot will ruin your day.
• Immune to most spells.
• Low AB, no AC whatsoever, and saves are garbage (you have enough fortitude to deal with devastating critical, however.)


BONUS
If you want to show iron balls of steel, change out Rogue for SD. You will have to rely on corner sneaking, but it will give you access to UMD which is pretty big.

If you choose to go this route, skip dodge and mobility on the first levels. Can try to go elf instead of human and get enough spot to deal with sneaks.
