WM CC gets crit immunity if they DO NOT belong to quassiclass. Which of course means that this build wont get it. Here is the quote from class changes:
Ki Reflection - Characters with weaponmaster as their control class who do not belong to a quasiclass and have at least 40 base Strength may acquire a Ki Reflection ability. When toggled on, Ki Reflection drains one use of the Ki Damage power every 15 seconds while providing critical hit immunity. The user may turn Ki Reflection off by using the power again.
Thanks Senaattori for your efforts at bringing clarity; a very pertinent observation. So the need for extra INT (at the expense of 2 STR) has its benefits - one extra skill can be taken to 63, and in this case it would have to be Parry.
I built my reincarnated character that way with the following changes:
# Retaining INT at 14 at character creation, getting two more INT from the Kolyarut bonus as per Rain's build, and then adding 2 further INT points during levelling up (so as to comply with the need to be able to cast level 8 spells, with the demi-bonuses not contributing as per the above discussion) at the expense of STR. # increasing CON by 2 # adding the 2 atribute points gained into STR, bringing it at creation to 15, thereby freeing one Great STR feat # taking Greater Weapon Focus instead of that Great STR feat # using the STR artifact # adding the extra skill points from the higher INT into Parry
As for now, I think it best to build with a base 16int(14 if planning to use int arti). It was my bad not even realising the anti-exploit thing there cuz I havenot reinc'ed my staffy to exactly the build I posted yet. Anyway, I'm still holding my reinc and the build till the paragon lvl is out, then I'm gonna update the build thorougly and test it out with my own reinc.
Skill Points: Tumble: 63 (take this after you get LSA:tumble) Discipline: 63 Craft Armour: 63 (take this in ur LL cuz wm only gets it as class skill at LL) Craft Weapon: 63 (take this in ur LL cuz wm only gets it as class skill at LL) Listen: 63 Parry: 63 Concentration: 31 Appraise: 6 Intimidate: 4 (this needs to be got before lvl 15)
What I've understood, and heard, demi bonuses from beating Asmodeus normaly WILL count. so your slinger should be able to cast lvl 9 spells after beating asmodeus once. And as long as your reincarnated build had same base WIS (in this case 18) before reclaiming demigod status/stats you would be able to get the 9 lvl spells.
Urgh so basically my build gets lvl 9 spells at demi thanks to the stat increase from Asmo, but even if I keep the Wis in the reinc at the same level as the wis on the original build I loose lvl 9 spells when I claim my demi bonus, that's sucky.
Hmm, that sounds... wrong. That just can't be right! You might want to ask DMs about this to make sure Im not just talking garbage. And if I'm right they should do something about this. its just not right that you would lose lvl 9 spells after finaly getting em.. Maybe there is just somekind of "checker" for you Original Pre-demi Wis/Int/Cha so that after you reclaim your demigod status you would be able to cast lvl 9 spells again.
