No idea what I'm doing II - Underpowered Coix Thief

Post by Steffa97 » Tue Jul 08, 2014 7:33 pm

Before you read
DISCLAIMER - This is a build that is the result of PURE AND UTTER BOREDOM. This build is in NO WAY meant to be taken seriously or even be remotely viable. Please take this template with less than a grain of salt.

-------The Basics---------

Race: Aracoix
Class: Rogue
Profession: Thief

------Applied Runes-------

Lucky
Tough as Nails
Proficient with Axes
Skydancer
Gladiator
Bounty Hunter
Traveller

----------Stats-----------

Strength: 108/115
Dexterity: 120/120
Constitution: 105/105
Intelligence: 60/85
Spirit: 15/85

----------Skills----------

Axe 123% (90 trains)
Wear Armor, Light 124% (90 trains)
Dodge 124% (90 trains)
Running 158% (56 trains)
Throwing 124% (90 trains)

----------Powers----------

Hide 18 (Journeyman)
Sneak 40 (Grand Master)
Coughing Gas 40 (Grand Master)
Crippling Blow 40 (Grand Master)
Talon Dance 20 (Journeyman)
Will of the Sky Dancer 20 (Journeyman)
Open Fire Gate 5 (Beginner)
Open Water Gate 5 (Beginner)
Open Earth Gate 5 (Beginner)
Open Air Gate 5 (Beginner)
Open Spirit Gate 5 (Beginner)


9def/45HP Raptor hood - Vorgrim chest/legs/boots/sleeves/gloves (aim for about 1850-1950 defense)
12con/dex rings, 12str/dex ammy
Top tier throwing axes (whatever they may be, not too experienced on throwing)

The only possibly clutch aspects are coughing gas and crippling blow. -76% defense and -35% attack without touching a weapon power and both instant cast.
Despite not receiving the powers requiring throwing AND axe, you should still get a snare, attack speed debuff and attack rating debuff just from the throwing line at PR-20. Damage shouldn't be TOO terribad with semi decent strength and the SD damage buff. Would have gone with 1H axes but no way to get the mastery line on a thief.

One special snowflake for sure.

No one has said it yet, so I will: You should have gone with throwing hammers.

Any reason for hammers v. axe besides faster attack speed?

Why did you go defense and pump Dex to 120? Lol

The minimum needed to get to a defense of about 1850-1950 without making the axe damage too terrible.

Could have went dagger but I REALLY want to be that special snowflake.

Like zenjah said about his GS Neph thief somewhere, you pay a price to not have to conform to a standard build. At least this one gets 3 weapon powers if I'm correct.

Neph thieves are awesome.

You'd be better off spending those stat and attribute points elsewhere. Resist builds are more fun than def builds anyway.

There's a whole lot of unique builds I've yet to try yet. I agree on resist but this was more for the WTF why can't I hit him factor than anything.

The only characters I can imagine having str/dex as the higher stats are barbs or warrs with str swords and high def; running stats like 140dex/140str/70con and pushing 1850+def and 4k+hp on top of very high damage.

With swords it can work.
