    Rogue Build(s) please comment

    ok i have been sittin here for two hours to crunch a plan for my elven Rogue.

    Lvl 3 (almost 4) Rogue with 14,18 (+),12,15 (+1),12,12 dual wielding MW daggers.

    My plan is to make as much Sneak attacks that i am alloted too. Also making ranged death touch attacks when my char is at that lvl. I am looking at 6d6 SA here with a lot of goodies.

    Rog 3/ Swash 3/ ASN 5/Master Thrower 1/ ASN 2/ MT 4/ASN 1
    BAB 16 = 6 attacks a round

    Feats (are in order) TWF, Wep finesse, Imp Iniative, Point Blank Shot, Precise Shot, Wep Focus Dagger, (quickdraw free), Sneaky shot (free), Improved Feint, Double Toss, Snatch Arrows (free), Imp TWF, Weak Spot, Critical Throw


    Ok some questions :
    Can i focus on dagger and count that as a throwing dagger for the purposes for MT?

    Could i use the MT ability even if i am not throwing? like Critical Throw?

    Is imp feint even worth it as i will have HIPS by that level?


    After reading up on the Invisible Blade .. i see that he can feint for free at lvl 5. Would IB be better suited for this type of character? If so i could take ASN to lvl 3, add some fighter for feats (if needed)Take SD and add IB.

    Rog 3 /Swa 3 /ASN 3 /SD 1 /IB 5 /MT 5

    Only 4d6 SA but has the ability to make them more often

    Sure, a dagger can be a melee weapon as well as a thrown weapon.

    What do you think, really? Critical Throw on a 'melee' attack. I think not. A MT can only use his thrown weapon tricks with a thrown weapon for which the character has taken weapon focus. If you use it as a melee weapon, its exactly that, a melee weapon.

    Yes, unless you think you can use Hide in Plain Sight to hide from an enemy who has spotted you and subsequently catch your enemy flat-footed by 'reappearing' from hiding. This cannot be done with Hide in Plain Sight.

    I think so, just change the PreReqs for the IB, as I understand there was an editing mistake in the PreReqs of the IB.

    My communities:

    Invisible Blade will be a better fit than Master Thrower for this particular character IMO. You might also consider using Ninja (from Complete Adventurer) instead of Rogue for the build, since it is so heavily Sneak-based, and the Ninja's Ki abilities will work well for that.

    1st, 3rd... & 5th.

    And your DM is allowing this... the 6 different classes?

    Not strictly, no, but most of your classes are Prestige Classes. Those are allowed only when the DM says they are, which means he or she can say no.

    No... is was being facetious.

    If you've got a good story line and character concept... and your DM is on the same page... go for it!.

    I just thought... based on the title of the thread... that you were needing help with a Rogue.

    What are the abbreviations SD and IB? And why is abbreviation such a long word? You would think it would be a shorter word given what it means...
    Where ever you go... There you are...
