DD+Anointed Knight

Post#1 » Fri Aug 24, 2018 4:37 pm

I'm curious to see which damage reductions stack with one another, and which are complete wastes.
As per lvl 40:
22 Fighter
10 DD
8 Anointed
AK - 50 SR, 5/- DR, small dmg bonus, no need for final two lvls, free toughness for DD
DD - Defensive stance, AC, IUD, 12/- DR, Set bonuses including 20/- DR
Fighter - Feats (because one needs to walk), wpn focus/spec lines, slashing mastery/supremacy, incomplete set
Misc - 16/- DR (3 epics + resilency), Expert Tactition does not function!!, etc.

Seems to me like anointed knight might not be worth it except for the SR, which you don't get till 8. Would I honestly be better off going weapon master instead? Fighter set weapon, 3/4 dmg bonuses, possibly edm since I'm already statted for it? The switch would eat feats, obviously, but:
22 Fighter
1 Cleric (at lvl 4)
10 DD
7 Weapon Master

Opinions?

Damage Reduction sadly doesn't stack. Only the highest is used :(

Some of it does. Old Heavy Armor Spec doesn't, just learned that AK doesn't. Adamantine armor/shield stacks with DD, so I assume the set cloak does? I don't know about Greater Resiliency since it was originally only available to barbarians, so I'm unsure if epic DR stacks. I think those three are ultimately the big question. Otherwise, the DD class is essentially worthless since Barbarian is better in pretty much every way.

Ok. Epic damage reductions and greater resilience stack with barb/dd DR, unless those feats were altered out of their original states when the numbers were increased.
Adamantine doesn't stack with anything.
So, what's the point of the DD set cloak? I have a choice between having 20/- DR total with the set, OR I can use the fighter set for WAY more dps, better defenses, and spend a few feats for a total of 28/- DR.

DD, BG, Paladin - those are very old and obsolete sets. Fighter, Rogue, Barbarian, Thug sets are much more powerful.
Magic is impressive, but now Minsc leads! Swords for everyone!

The point is the pleasure to play a DD. And ultimately, you can stack DD with fighter.
DD10/BG3/WM7/F20 is easy to build and can crack some skulls. You don't need the 6th DD item, 5 are enough to get full cheese from DD set. and then you complete with whatever, Fighter set, misc set, other items.
have fun !

Edit : That one I have built quickly : http://nwn2db.com/build/?289231
(copy it, so you can see all the feats, including armor skin 2 &3 and maybe others)

Don't bother with divine shield, you'll be dodge capped and it'll do nothing - unless they decided to change the dodge cap on the server that is ;)
