    Thanks in advance.
    To answer the question on the Samurai, it depends on whether you're an Elf or not.

    If you can take Elven Accuracy, Sharpshooter is better. Otherwise, go Great Weapon Master.

    Although I'd only go the Elf/Sharpshooter build if your front line wouldn't benefit from a heavy-armored 10HD character with a supply of THP, self-healing, and death denial. Samurai are basically Barbarians in plate, and there's more you can contribute than damage.
