The Transporter[]

Here's a build by Carnivore on the COBoards it's a solid Two Weapon Fighting build with an focus on passive damage bonus. Also got the nifty ability to teleport quite often making him a dangerous threat to everyone on the battle field. He might suffer a bit from MAD but nothing that a Belt of Magnificiance can't fix !


Stats are very important to this character. Your key stats will be :
Dex : You will get your Dex to Attack and 2xDex to damage. Double that with your Light Armor and Two Weapon Fighting, you are going to need a lot of this !
Int : You get your Int to damage and get a lot of skill points from that, you need a good score here
Con : As a melee character, you need at least a decent score
Str : As always a good score can't hurt but you get much less benefit than a regular fighter
Wis : You do get Wis to AC but nothing to justify spending a lot of ressources here. Still usefull for Will saves
Cha : Nice for flavor but overall not needed at all.

  • For a 32 point buy system: Str 14, Dex 14, Con 14, Int 14, Wis 14, Cha 10
  • For a 28 point buy system: Str 14, Dex 14, Con 14, Int 14, Wis 8, Cha 8

All your Level points should go to Dex

This character will have a lot of skill points as well as Trapfinding, if you choose to go Human, Able Learner is a solid choice.

What does the build get you ?[]

Dex to Attack
2x Dex to Damage(CoC 2, and Shadow Blade feat... using Lightblade(Shortsword)
Str to Damage
Int to Damage
Wis to AC
Dex to AC

BAB +16
Attack bonus = 16 (BAB)+ 11 (DEX) +5 (Enhancement) +1 (Haste) -1 TWF (Twin Exotic)= +32
Full Attack with TWF/ITWF and Speed Weapon =
Main Hand : +32/+32/+27/+22/+17 Off Hand +32/+27 and 11 AoO @+32 Robilars Gambit

basically he gets 14 Attacks @ +32 and +27/+27/+22/+17 ... all doing Average +47 Damage each Hit .... if all hit he does 846 Damage/round..not too bad for a 2 Weapon Finesse fighter who doesnt need Power Attack, and he heals 18d6 per round if all hit ..... this doesnt even take into consideration Martial Manuvers from Swordsage or Crusader

+35 to Damage without counting Weapon Enhancements or anything other than Attributes, total Weapon Damage= +35+ 5 enhancement +1d6 Vampiric +1d6 Weapon= Average +47 Damage each Hit
