20 Ranger
Aasmiar Scourge

STR 8
DEX 18
CON 17
INT 14
WIS 11
CHA 8

I have +7 tomes on all stats. All level ups to Dex.

Feats:
1: Precision
1c: Favored Enemy: Evil Outsider
3: Weapon Finesse
5c: Favored Enemy: Aberration
6: Completionist
9: IC: Piercing
10c: Favored Enemy: Construct
12: Quicken
15: Empower Healing
15c: Favored Enemy: Human
18: Toughness
20c: Favored Enemy: Elf
21: Overwhelming Critical
24: Epic Toughness
26: Perfect TWF
27: Epic DR
28: Pierce Silver
29: Dire Charge
30: Sneak of Shadows
30: Scion of the Ethereal Plane

Gear: *
Head: Legendary Mask of the Vulkoorim
Goggles: Garstone Lenses (202 devotion but mostly for set bonus)
Neck: Slavers - Con, Resist, Stunning, Con
Trinket: Bloodrage Chrism
Armor: Legendary Mist-Laden Vestment
Cloak: Legendary Shadowhail Cloak
Wrist: Legendary Lore-Fueled Pack Banner
Belt: Legendary Braided Cutcord
Ring1: Legendary Ring of Nightfall
Ring2: Legendary Ring of Prowess
Boots: Flightfoot Greaves
Hands: Legendary Crumbling Gloves
Weapons:
Main hand: Flow
Offhand: Legendary Vulkoor's Edge
Swaps to thunderforged, echo of sunsword, light maces as appropriate.


*So to talk about the gear a little more in depth, there are several things that are not best in slot or what i am working towards. I am wearing the helm because i do not otherwise have a dodge/armor piecing item. The chrism is inefficient as it only provides HA for a twf build. I have been working on getting my crafting levels high enough to make an appropriate trinket and consolidate my gear slots, which will create a shift in several pieces of gear. The gear set i am working towards is:

Head: Legendary Executioner's Helm
Goggles: Van Richten's Spectacles
Neck: Slavers - Con, Resist, Stunning, Con
Trinket: Crated dodge, Hamp, Insightful Dex
Armor: Legendary Mist-Laden Vestment
Cloak: Legendary Shadowhail Cloak
Wrist: Legendary Lore-Fueled Pack Banner
Belt: Legendary Braided Cutcord
Ring1: Legendary Ring of Nightfall
Ring2: Legendary Ring of Prowess
Boots: Flightfoot Greaves
Hands: Molten silver Gauntlets

This will give me a boost to DPS in double strike, seeker, and relentless fury (on trash), and cost me a little healing amp, 2 Dex, and some PRR . I have enough hut runes to get one of the two items shown in my goal gear-set with the gauntlets obviously being the priority.

Harper: 8
Cores: Agent of Good I
Tier 1: Traveler's Toughness III, Weathered Traveler I
Tier 2: Know the Angles III

Thoughts about the build:

I decided to make this a dex based tempest based on a couple of factors. I think it is easier on build points, allowing me to focus on less stats and get dex/con higher right off bat. It is also easier to gear, particularly for the gear that I own right now. The silent avenger set is obviously has a lot of synergy with a dex based toon and i was having trouble fitting everything in and still getting both set bonuses with strength (even when considering my ideal gear). The drawback to this is that I have less flexibility in available weaponry. My top end dex to hit/damage weapons are scimitars and rapiers. Bludgeoning requires a swap to light maces (or heavy if i don't mind missing some) and I do not have a swap to khopesh option.

Stengths: Good dps, Dire Charge DC, high reflex with evasion, decent survivability for a front line toon

Weaknesses: Will saves are not great, i try to make up for this with spell absorb and quest knowledge. Me being the one that is piloting him is a weakness some days.

Just as a follow-up to the post, i have been continuing to crunch out essences and level up my crafting since I posted the build. I crafted the trinket noted in gear set 2 which allowed me to switch the helm to executioners and used my runes to grab the molten silver gauntlets. I will also be switching out the destiny feat as the gloves have silver bypass covered. So gearing is closer to gear set 2 atm.
