    Default What would you play if you rolled all 18s?

    No real reason for this thread beyond curiosity. If you rolled all 18s for your abilities, what class would you play?

    I think I'd go bard. Throw bardic knack in there, and suddenly you have the epitome of the bard. Someone who can do anything, only this bard can do it really well.
    I find it kinda funny I find it kinda sad.

    Crusader or Swordsage. I'd take Vow of Nonviolence and be Vash with a sword.

    I'd play a gish: warblade/wizard with a focus on divination and Xanatos Gambits. After my intricate planning stage, it's just a matter of NOT using any of my spells or maneuvers while proceeding to pwn everything and anything stupid enough to get in my way (read: do anything more intrinsically notable than [and including] looking at me in a weird way) just to show how much of a badass I really am.

    Or, a petrifying bard/warlock.

    What is a petrifying bard/warlock, thegurullamen? I think I'd pick either Druid or Cleric because they tend to benefit most from having high scores for all stats and I like Divine casters. (I prefer Shapeshifter Druids to normal ones, so I need my physical stats to be good.)

    I picked the same. Although to be honest, I guarantee I'd either multiclass or PC at least once (to avoid monk 20)

    Paladin.

    He can hit, dodge, has good HP, save bonuses from stats at level 2 of +8, will get bonus spells at all levels, has a decent skill list to use that int, can lay on hands for a lot, and will get a lot of turns to fuel the divine feats.

    Artificer. I have the ability scores to be fully efficient in my main role and also good in melee if need be, or if I just feel like it? And I can make all of my own neato-keen toys, including weapons I'll actually be dangerous with?

    Okay then.

    That actually sounds like a relatively good idea. Paladins are known for being pretty MAD, so six 18s would be pretty good. I mean, having 18s in Str, Con, Wis, and Cha would be fine, but grabbing them in Dex and Int too couldn't hurt.


    I might also think about Factotum. I mean, they only need Intelligence, but only because they get to add it to everything. Take that and add to the fact you've already GOT decent/high modifier in stuff from your other abilities, and this just makes it better.

    Alternatively, I might would actually try a real gish - I mean, you don't have to worry about heavy armor (i.e., arcane spell failure) as much with the high Dex, you've got good Str and Con for meleeing, you've got a high stat in your casting stat, AND your other mental scores are good, too, even if you only need 'em for some skills or your (already-decent) Will save.

    Twilight mithril feycraft chain shirt? I do believe that's +4 armor, +6 max dex, and a 0% ASF.

    Now, Rogue would also be good. +4 modifier on every skill for stats, good dex, good str, good hp, a ton of skills, and you don't need to decide between skillmonkey and combat fiend. Do both.

    I'd play a gestalt swordsage//shadowmage (my own class, in sig).

    What the heck, right? I've already got all-18's so I may as well go all-out.

    Unless everyone else also had 18's, I'd never play anything with such a set. And even then, I'd be reluctant.

    Definitely not a Monk, Rogue, Wizard or Cleric.

    Probably not a Barbarian.

    Definitely not a Druid.

    By no means anything Psionic.

    Nothing ToB.

    ...

    I'd be a Half-Orc Fighter. In fact, the resultant set could very well provide the functionality of a an evil, villain-esque NPC who PCs in one of my games have a choice to deal with (I mean compromise). A Machiavellian Prince whose cunning, boldness and ruthlessness bring him beyond what his lowly birth damned him to, to a status of high-lordship, no less than a King of his own domain. But, this would be my decision only because of that sentimentality. I enjoyed developing that character.

    I've decided there's no other way I would play with all 18's. I personally think it's just silly.

    Definetly ranger.

    Strenght for bow & sword.
    Dexterity for bow, AC and other stuff
    Constitution is obvious
    Intelligence for skills and generally being "smart ranga"
    Wisdom for spells, Will save, skills
    Charisma is generally lame in 3.5, but it would be always nice to create different character than stereotypical "lone ranger".

    Multiclass to Barbarian, beacuse I like that combination, and to make use of great Constitution.

    Alternatively, bard, or some interesting mage/warrior combination.

    A rogue, just to brag about having infinity +1 on every skill known to man, and several known to dolphins.
    Also it would allow me to use my dual wielding longswords sunder rogue, which may not be efficient (Oversized TWF lessens this), but when you can smash someone's weapon then kill them in the same turn (thus making the first action redundant) who cares.

    A human commoner with proficiency and Weapon Focus in "Pitch Fork". Take Leadership at level 6 and now you too can have your own angry mob!

    I think a kobold rogue would be pretty sweet with those stats. Take improved Initative and have a starting modifer of like... +9?

    Wow... that's a tough one honestly.

    Probably a Swordsage though, headed for Master of the Nine. Simply put, having an 18 in every stat = perfect for a Master of the Nine, since every key ability would be covered.

    Me? Personally?

    A dwarvish druid.

    Simply because there has never been a Dwarvish Druid.

    In fact, I may play one anyway, just to spite those who haven't already made a Dwarvish Druid.

    -Keep in mind, I'm also a man whose first character he ever made came out as an insane singing half-orc Monk from an Asian setting, and my current characters consist of a Violet-haired dual-weilding Barbarian Elf with a nobil background, his sister who is only half his age *and height*, and a scout who spends most of her time crafting armor.

    Dwarvish Druid may, in fact, be my most reasonable character to date.

    I think I'd call him "Targa Stoneroot", and give him a badger as an animal companion, and have him be a largely combat-oriented druid.
