Hello all, thanks for stopping in (even if you don't have any advice to give)! My group is about to start a new campaign (3.5 D&D, Eberron) and i'm looking to play a Warforged character. This will only be my second campaign so i'm still kinda new to the game. My plan is to be a 'Charger' build and Prestige my way into the Warforged Juggernaught class. I know some of the basic feats I want to get:
EWP, Spiked Chain (not necessary but sounds fun)
Improved Bull Rush
The DM is still deciding whether he's going to allow me to take the Lion Spirit Totem class feature or not (if not i'll be full Fighter). The problem is, i've never played a 'charger' build before so I don't know what to do with my feats after I get the ones above. I know i'll be taking massive damage after I butcher my own AC with Heedless Charge, so the question is...
Should I focus more on to-hit and damage (Weapon Focus/Specialization)?
Or Should I go for more defense (Improved Toughness/Improved Damage Reduction)?
Or a little bit of both? Any other suggestions are welcome!
Thanks again for stopping in and thanks even more if you offer advice!
P.S. All official WotC 3.5 books are fair game EXCEPT for the Forgotten Realms books (no Valorous enhancement
