    Default Gestalt Arena Build Help

    How does this build looks for the no-caster gestalt arena?

    Race:Marrulurk (Sandstorm)
    1 Swordsage//RHD IUS, Expeditous Dodge, Adaptive Style Point Blank shot (Racial bonus) Rapid Shot (Racial Bonus)
    2 Swordsage// RHD
    3 Swordsage// RHD Blind Fight
    4 Swordsage//LA
    5 Swordsage//Spirit Lion Totem Barbarian
    6 Swordsage//Wildshape Ranger TWF
    7 Swordsage//Wildshape Ranger
    8 Swordsage// Wildshape Ranger
    9 Blood Claw Master// WildShape Ranger Mobilty
    10 Bloodclaw Master//Wildshape Ranger
    11 Mot9// Warshaper
    12 Mot9// Warshaper GTWF
    13 Mot9// MotMF
    14 Mot9// MotMF
    15 Mot9// MotMF Shadow Blade

    Variants: Unarmed Swordsage, Spirit Lion Totem, Wildshape ranger
    Flaws: Shaky, Vulnerable

    I have just noticed I am short on feats... for MotMF (need alertness)
    I'will try to ask for retraining the Racial bonus feat.

    The basic idea is to get as many attacks a round possible, which in combination of craven, shadow blade and SA (granted by race) and manyfang daggers, deal a sizable amount of damage.

    Also I need help with the manouber selection (the highest lvl martial adept I have played was lvl 4)

    Any advice for the build, should I ditch MotMf? I plan on being a dex fighter and I don't know of good forms for increasing dex that still let me use my manyfang daggers....

    Thanks in advance

    Officially, gestalting 2 PrCs at a single level is forbidden. Many DMs ignore this.

    What is your race getting you that's worth 4 levels despite wildshape?

    I wouldn't bother spending that many levels on Wildshape if you aren't gonna use it. Some templates such as Half-Dragon might be far more useful.

    Wildshape (or something like it) is needed for Warshaper.
    Of course, by the time I finish this post, it will already be obsolete. C'est la vie.

    Aye, but getting "something like it" is much easier; one-level dip in Bear Warrior, for example, is enough.

    Or just playing a Changeling.

    Personally with the opportunities posed by Gestalt I'd try and make this into a wicked AoO/Grapple Build with mass amounts of fighter on one side and some Black Blood Cultist mixed with Scaled Horror. Could turn out pretty vicious if done right. Sort of a natural weapon Lock Build with grappling for when it's the player's turn.

    The race is marrulurk, which I detailed in other thread, my main selling point is the good ability bonus, a nauseating breath weapon and racial sneak attack.

    What do you suggest for a DEX based fighter? I thought more rogue levels for more SA, but I am having difficulties on finding ways to apply it. So far I only have going first on initiative, and the manouber distracting ember which gives me flanking buddy for one turn-
