-nwnolan (Now the keen longbow doesn't exist here, so just forget about that part of it.) I'm getting sick of seeing all of these clerics around, so I'm comparing this build that I found online to the classic Cleric 15/Bard 2/AA 23. I haven't even looked throug hthis one alot, but the TR and EDR attracted me.... So, improvements to it and what not? The link is listed below to the topic:

That build would have a highly devasting effect if u take TR + ESF Intimidate to use at about lvl 25, especialy against those silly lvl 22 mages, if TR still affected creatures lower than you char's HD. I had thought of using it with Hide & MS to cast Rage very close to the victim so it would instantly run in fear and shot a lot of arrows in 1d6 rounds Tongue

Yes, grizzled_dwarflord, (or something like that) had made a post on the link that if he dropped the DEX to 16 and put the INT +4 and the STR +2, I could reach that marker sooner or something. Also, it'll give me more stats to max out, which I probably would max out Listen, for those SD's, and drop the UMD down to a reasonable number like 25, and put the rest into other skills. (perhaps SC for spell saves?) He will not have the epic AB that my Cleric Bard AA will have when he is 40, but it'll be reasonably high enough. Should be hitting low 70's with a good bard song, bless, aid, etc.

Um... I just realized something about it. How did he get Terrifying Rage? The prerequisite is.... (Prerequisite: Epic Barbarian, Intimidate 25 ranks)

http://nwn.bioware.com/underdark/feats.html#TerrifyingRage

This makes no sense now....

[EDIT]- Um.. I just tried it out on my testing server and I got it at lvl 27....

Pre-wipe I had a lot of fun with Bard9/SD2/AA29. Not very buff reliant, nice ab, hips, etc. Not sure what the stats are on Perforator longbow now though.

You need Greater Rage and 25 ranks in Intimidate to get Terryfing Rage. In reality, "Epic Barbarian" means "Character Lvl past 20" because that is the minimum lvl you need to get 25 ranks into a skill, without any focuses.

I just updated the Perforator bow from the glimpse that I got from it. I replaced the 5d6 sneak attack bonus with 3d6, and added +8 to discipline, and +10 to spot and listen. It also has mighty and ab +5 on it, not sure if that is correct though, I don't remember what those stats were. And thanks Abimael, that makes a lot more sense.
