    At Level 5 Slam has just gained sentience. He fights more like a golem than he fights like someone with "higher" reasoning. He slams people. Thanks to his quorcraft nature he has two slams each dealing 2d6 damage. With dungeon crasher and improved bull rush he can push people into walls for some good damage, and with his totemist levels he has Bound the Heart of Fire to his Totem Chakra, allowing him to deal additional damage with his slams. If he ever faces a creature immune to fire he can pour his essentia from his Totem to his Dread Carapace for pseudo power attack.

    He now is evil and completely fine with murdering any and all in his way, usually by charging them into a wall and then pounding away at them. Until they are little more than red smears on the wall. He is largely the same as level 5, although his immunities and defenses are highly improved, and he now has 3 slams each dealing 2d6 and an additional 3d4 fire. He's trying something out at this level, seeing if he can make his opponents tired while pounding them into the dirt.

    This is probably when he is his most powerful for his level, grabbing pounce and Cobalt Charge he is dealing a large amount of damage considering he doesn't have Shock Trooper. His defense is still amazing, he has all his immunities, and he can swap soulmelds when the occasion calls for it to improve his versatility.

    His hit points are all averaged out and rounded up, with the first number being if you add con mod and the second number being if you add construct size mod. The Soulfused Construct template calls out that you must use this Living Construct subtype which does not include con mod to hit points, however I am uncertain if this is the Living Construct subtype that you would use, or if you would use the Eberron specific one which does allow con mod to hp.
    His stat blocks look sub par but please remember that this is all without any equipment whatsoever. If we enchanted his body, his fists, and his armor spikes, while giving him magical items that enabled flight, gave boosts to his already impressive AC, boosted up his stats, and increased his saves then he would seem a lot scarier. As a warforged any magic item can be constructed to be an intrinsic part of him, allowing him to never leave home without any of his equipment. While he isn't as item dependent as some creatures or characters, his power increases with equipment much more than many other classes cough spellcasters cough but I don't want him to seem reliant on equipment.

    Slam was built in ancient days. For hundreds of years he has sat. Eternally guarding. Until one day an incarnum user sought passage through his warded domain. Slam successfully fended off this "powerful" incarnum user. But he was changed for it. He became Soulfused. He ventured forth from his charge for the first time in a seeming millennia. He wandered the random areas of Xendrik. Impervious to many dangers with no natural predators he was.. happy. An emotion. What a strange thing. He became one with nature. Allowing his soul to adapt, to let in the ambient energies of Xendrik. And what ambient energies there were.
    He grew more powerful learning and adapting from the beasts of Xendrik, until one day he found something... new. This place, this Stormreach he came to learn it to be called. He entered this city. Only to be the source of racial hatred against his brethren from another continent.
    These Warforged. They were hated. As was he. They expected him to work like a machine,
    to do any and all jobs presented without any resentment. He denied them. He fled to where the supposed warforged were supposed to take refuge. There he found even more racial slurs.
    The warforged didn't trust him. He was different. More different than any other warforged they encountered. Slam told them that he had been in xendrik for millennia and the shocked warforged threw him out. Shunned him. Told him that he was an impossibility. That he should not be able to exist and therefore should not exist. They gave him one chance to flee. He fled.
    but he took resentment to the other sentient creatures of the world. He hated them all.
    He returned to his home, where he stood guard, but he was followed. Adventurers. They came one by one, two by two, eventually dozens came to attempt to kill slam. He killed them all.
    It didn't matter anymore. He began hunting these other creatures. Hunting them to extinction if he could. They fled before him. He had apparently earned a name for himself. A creature appeared before him, one that he recognized as the warforged. He began to charge at this creature before another one showed him this thing. A symbol, and then the warforged commanded him to kneel. And he kneeled. Something was forcing his actions. So while he kneeled he watched. He learned what this warforged was. This warforged was bigger than any other he had seen. They called him the Lord of Blades. The Lord of Blades spoke to Slam.
    Spoke and spoke and spoke. So many words, more words than he had ever known existed,
    but somehow they just made.. sense. He agreed to whatever this Lord was speaking to him.
    Apparently all of the fleshy sentient races are evil, and must be killed in order for him to have a home. This Lord of Blades had a plan to do exactly that, but he needed someone to guard this Creation Forge. Whatever that was. He needed a guardian to kill any that dared to enter that didn't have the Lord of Blades permission. So he accepted. He ventured with this Lord of Blades.
    They came to the Mournlands. A place crawling to the brim with soul energy. It was a dangerous place. One that only the strong could survive. And survive Slam did. He continued to guard eternally for this Lord of Blades, waiting until his plan came to fruition. Waiting for all the fleshy creatures of the world to be wiped out. Waiting for him to be able to take his rightful place as the dominant species on this world. Eberron.
