If you have any questions or suggestions about our Neverwinter Fighter Dreadnought guide, please leave a comment below! More info about the Fighter class can be found at The Neverwinter Reddit.This is the new build, gear enchantments and all, that I now use to tank endgame.
The major changes are for the following reasons: Firstly, the sheer amount of damage dealt by all the mobs in malabog, especially if you have a group with less than stellar dps, is quite impressive, and far outstrips anything else encountered in the game, except maybe moments of being stunned in spellplague and dread vault.
For this reason, and the nerf to its AP generation, I removed Knight Valor from my rotation and replaced it with frontline surge. I also removed both my chest enchantment, bloodtheft, and my weapon enchantment, lifedrinker, and replaced them with enchants to reduce the amount of damage i take overall. The feytouched only goes off on encounter powers, so by using my frontline surge once every 20 seconds i ensure the maximum uptime of my feytouched on up to 3 enemies. My gear remains pretty consistent, I finally got an ioun stone, so i have more stats room to play around with, which is nice.
I did however replace one of my defense slots with a greater tranquil enchantment. I use Into the fray while running into combat, use threatning rush to close the distance and apply marks, then use frontline surge to apply feytouched and put the more threatening enemies prone. Use supremacy of steel to apply debuff to large group of enemies, or terrifying impact to apply debuff to enemies in a line and knock them prone to interupt attacks and make it easier to ensure agro.
By no means follow this build directly, every player is different and what makes me my best tank will not necessarily be true for you. I play without a taunt, as will be described below, and these two help to ensure i have a constant aoe threat going. I use the ancient main-hand and off-hand. As its downright the best, and its set bonus stacks well with grand regents set bonus. I have 2 sets of rings and necks, one for normal tanking situations, i use ancient brawler necklace and ancient priests rings, and one for kiting situations, i use the hrimnir set.
But the other 3 points are better used elsewhere. At this point your daily should come back up and be ready for the entire rotation again as soon as knights valor is back off cooldown. Gear: My gear remains pretty consistent, I finally got an ioun stone, so i have more stats room to play around with, which is nice.

This is a great solo class due to having great DPS, buffs, and tank style set up. One of the best skills you get with the GF would be the dungeoneering skill.
This is great as your making dungeon runs often, making it come in very handy. Here is a link for a few builds to get an idea for what you personally would prefer to do as you begin to build your GWF.
Able to deal massive AOE damage. And a variety of control and ranged powers. The CW is a good choice for solo play as well. A great pick for solo play would be the Oathbound Paladin. Being considered immortal from the binding, buffs, and health makes it easier to solo along with the ability to switch play styles at campfires make for a good play strategy.

Gamer Since: Currently Playing: Neverwinter and Call of Duty.Kindly visit this post for Mod 17 Uprising Guide.
There are plenty of dungeons, skirmishes, trials, raids and huge content in neverwinter world, But Tower of Mad Mage is hardest content till now. This raid has most complex mechanism of Nevewinter.
This ToMM Guide will cover every major and important aspect as well every small and tiny things as your team formation and understanding of ToMM will decide the fortune of outcome. As I have already explained, Tower of mad mage is newly added trial along with new expansion of Neverwinter Mod 17 Uprising.
This ToMM Guide is crafted to help you with all mechanics and explain you everything from the basics of the ToMM to its complex mechanics. It will give full details about recommended stats, ratings, powers, classes and their roles, boss fight and phases, etc in depth. Complete explanation of boss fight is the most comprehensive part of this ToMM Guide.
The step by step representation of complex mechanism of the boss fight, the recommended preparations for the fight, optimal stats and best team composition. But as you know we are just talking about Tower of Mad Mage or ToMM then scenario is bit different and classy for this. You need to increase a lot more stats all together to get you chance of completing the trial at a good ratio. Very similar to previous mode, practically power and hit points both are the most effective stat to work on all together.
It may vary from player to player. Kindly allow me to clear with an example. Because survivability in ToMM is the most important part of trial and its actually tough too. In such case, you may need to spend some more effort and time on HP and need to touch k to get maximum survivability with massive health points. The Tower will pit 10 adventurers against the Mad Mage himself; Halaster Blackcloak, ruler and creator of Undermountain.
As I already mentioned earlier in this post that the trial ToMM is not gonna be cake walk or hack and slash stuff. You will definitely gonna see one of the most difficult content of neverwinter till now. So i would love to suggest you to brace yourself and get ready to face death. The Tower of Mad Mage features an entry item level requirement of 24k. You need to unlock the ToMM by doing some repeatable quests in Stardock. You also need proper team of healers dps and tank to crack this hard content.
In this trial, Party coordination is too important and each and every class plays an important role accordingly.

Let me explain it in a bit more detail. DPS- I have already mentioned required stats to ToMM guide for DPS in above table such as power, arp, crit etc but still the most important factor to do heavy damage for dps is power. Basically you need minimum, k power to survive in ToMM and do some notable damage.
I would like to suggest you to reach up k power asap to make ToMM an enjoyable run and do some massive damage. Your goal should be around k power at least at complete end game content to use your DPS at best.In this guide, we will give you tips and info on how to play the Fighter class.

I'm playing on the xbone and will try to translate it across to see if anyone notices a difference. Have been looking at different weapon and armour enchants cos negation is not required now and shadowclad only gets to hits before deflecting, briartwine is hilarious Orcus hits for you reflect !!!!!
Love the tact build cos its nice to hear others in the party shout out things like "WOW I just hit for Of all in your guide my favourite was the cartoon of the CW jumping in to save the GF Went straight on our guild FB page Keep it up mate. Definitely appealing for those looking to jump ship out of the Paladin ongoing trainwreck disaster. Im not gonna jump ship yet until i make sure there's no hope for my paladin after testing live. To be fair Sharpedge is thefabricant 's main. Very nice guide - thank you for your efforts.
A friend is having problems loading the document - getting the message "web page not found. Thanks for the reply rjc I overlooked the 8k HP mount bonus. That makes up a large chunk. There was some debate about companions with 3 defensive slots no longer being useful in Mod 10 but that is moot now.
Another thing: should the Dancing Shield be stealing aggro from you? Hello great job with guide. I use a similar build with a few differences but i have few questions. Why you dont invest "United" feat? It's buged? I dont see icon this feat and i realy dont know it's work or not. I remember when i try use this skill on this boss and every few seconds I losing agro. Maybe it's a good skill but i think not on this one boss. Are you sure the stronghold weap is the best i ask because i dont knowtwisted is weak but this new eq is very good.
You know maybe where i can find information how get this weapon, what i need etc.? Which enhancement is the best for weap for you? I think it's all my questions.Before diving into the paladin, I want to establish an expectation: this is not a collection of screenshots telling you what to take. This is an informed observation about the paladin class overall, and while I will make mention of my personal picks, it will always be with an explanation of why I do or do not use a power, as well as use-cases for all of those powers.
My goal is for someone that finishes reading this document to understand when and why I do or do not use a specific power, feature, or feat. While I will have short summaries at the end for the two paragon paths, for most of the document I will cover both paths in the same section. Justicar is the tank paragon, and Oathkeeper is the heal paragon. I play both equally, as my guild rotates roles around a lot so I can find myself tanking or healing on any particular content.
Some of these require more focus than others. With Mod16 this has become less important than ever; at most any particular race is going to net you 2 extra attribute points or a minor effect.
Any advantage that one race may or may not have over another race is so small that the standard deviation of random number generation is going to be larger than the difference.
That was the extent of my choice. Wisdom is going to boost your Outgoing Healing, which you want to pick up every scrap of that you can, and Dexerity will improve your critical severity on crit heals of which paladins can guarantee crits. Strength is the weak attribute for paladins; it does not boost our damage, and Justicars have many ways to recover stamina already.
Dexterity is a good pickup for any class; Critical Severity is always welcome, and no one complains about running a little faster. Charisma is another solid choice; because Recharge Speed is always good, though Companion Influence is lackluster more on that in Companions.
So this is the big question—what is the best gear to wear!? Basically anything that gives flat percentage boosts to damage is probably the absolute best. However if you have full Successor and Protege gear? A few stats like Accuracy start hitting a soft-cap around K before the hard-cap, when adding more Accuracy has the same impact to your overall damage as just adding more Power.
The same goes for Deflect, when you reach a point where your life expectancy against incoming damage increases the same if you just add more Hit Points.
So what stats do you focus on hard capping? For both paragons:. The most obvious is your gear you wear. The next source of stats and probably the most important is your companion. As of this writing, your best gain is from an augment. There are lots of augments to choose from, and the main driver for your choice should be the 3 bonus stats that augment has.
Along with that augment companion, you need Bonding Runestones. The better they are, the more stats your augment is transferring to you. Runestones are a good way to tweak any stats you are coming up short on, or just stack on more power with them if you are capped where you want to be.
Then you have your mount insignias. One of your first goals should be to get 5 mounts with 3 insignia slots each, and fill them with rare insignias. Epic insignias cost a fortune and are one of the worst returns for investment you can buy. Get rares, fill out any stat gaps you have, and then stack on power. If you only healed and never tanked I would go with Soul Forged just in case you went down, since you can heal yourself after dying.
Optionally you could go Barkshield to help prevent dying in the first place.
So this is the meat and potatoes of any class guide. I will conclude this section with what my preferred choices are as well. Every class can have two class features active at any time; for paladins, only one of them can be an Aura power, and it must be placed in the top slot.
Boons accomplish a couple of things for your paladin. First and most obviousthey give you increases to your stats.
