    AA Build Suggestions

    Hi all! I'm looking for an AA build for my son, 13, who plays DDO with me on a semi regular basis and has toyed around with just about every base class. He's expressed an interest in playing more regularly and really wants to play a ranged character. I've found some builds on the DDO forums but would like to turn to you all for build suggestions and opinions. Constraints would be, he's f2p with only base classes, 28pt builds. My thought process is, with these constraints, pure Human or Elf Ranger might be the best choice. Less complicated would be better, to hold his interest and it doesn't need to be uber, just fun to play. I'm also considering rolling up an AA of my own to duo with him. I've found some interesting Bardchers (I don't have Monk ATM) I'm considering but suggestions for me are welcome as well.

    Please, bombard me with your silly AA knowledge!

    Thanks - Dohl

    1. Point Blank Shot, Toughness (Human), Favored Enemy: Undead
    3. Weapon Focus: Ranged
    5. Favored Enemy: Construct
    9. Improved Critical: Slashing
    10. Favored Enemy: Elemental
    12. Improved Critical: Ranged
    15. Enpower Healing, Favored Enemy: Evil Outsider
    18. Precision
    20. Favored Enemy: Elf

      Well, my first toon and still my favorite is my elven ranger AA. I love the ranged aspect and being able to inflict damage while keeping away from the big swords. I am f2p as well. I don't know what my original build was other than that it wasn't great, too high a focus on dex, not enough str!

      You want to roughly balance dex and str, high enough dex to hit, high STR for damage. I'd definitely go for UMD to be able to use heal scrolls at high level. Not sure I'd bother with empower healing, but I don't remember what feats I did take.

        I was probably going to breakdown the stats like so with all lvl ups in str.

        str.16, dex.16, con.14, int.8, wis.10, cha.8

        also considering dropping toughness and sliding everything else up a slot. taking Quicken with the open feat at lvl 15. my thought process is quickened, empowered heals with a maxed ranger devotion line for survivability.

            Re: AA Build Suggestions

            Hey,

            I don't know much about AA, but I know that a lot of Bardchers are soloing the EE content in the game. Lately Jerimiiah seems to be one of the best AA's in the guild, maybe he has some input. I know Spatz and Nae have tinkered with them in the past as well. Maybe they have some advice.

            Good luck!
