Stats are with x2 demi, str artifact, and a maxed out gear setup. 143 AC (large shield) 146 AC (small shield) 127 AC (2 handed weapon) 101 AB with two weapon types 6 attacks/round with 2 weapon types Dev crit with 1 weapon 56 str 46 dex saves: 71 68 67 Fear immune Disease immune Divine wand usage 7.25 minutes of full crit immunity/day (after str arti or 1x demi) Very high parry Very high Listen
Cons: Vulnerable to confusion, need immunity from gear
Variants: Drop 2 pre epic paladin levels for fighter levels and drop EWF/LWF in your secondary weapon for two-weapon-fighting feats and focus primarily in a double weapon.
Drop 2 dex for str and use dex arti
If not demi and no artifact available drop 2 dex for 2 str to hit 40 base str for crit immunity.
dex works as good as str on wm's does it not? It would seem that one might consider going dex with abyss being so dex heavy aka balors etc. Especially since you went with no shield option. Have you been able to play test this in the abyss yet?
Considering I can reach 140 AC on a str character I see no reason not to build it as such. However, a Dex version would reach 149 AC with a shield but would have MUCH lower damage due to the lack of dev crit and the huge str mod. Also dex weapons aren't as extreme as the bastard sword.

Just wondering if anyone can comment on the idea of dropping 4 strength for 4 more dex. I would think with the high AB it wouldn't hurt the build too much. I was intrested in trying to make this build reach uni-tank tank status easier, since I won't be reincarnating a double demi toon, and I don't have an asmo belt laying around. If I pull 4 points from strength to dex, I'd hit uni tank status at 1x demi, no asmo belt needed. If later on I hit double demi, and get myself an asmo belt, then ofc reincarnating to the build posted would make sense.
