This is the build I'm in the midst of trying out right now, haven't tried it out using the Frenzied Rampage, but let me know what you guys think, will it be fine enough to push into Noib?

This build layout is assuming that you actually are familiar with the mods and Combat Arts of a SW, therefore every detail isn't spelled out for you here, this layout wouldn't be for a person coming to the forums to learn what a SW is capable of, but trying to figure out the funnest way to run a Summoning SW

Attributes:80/20 split
1. Stamina
2. Vitality

SW Skills (Master Order)
1. Astral Lord (1)
2. Astral Focus (2)
3. Malevolent Focus (6)
4. Ancient Magic (7)
5. Speed
6. Hafted
7. Armor Lore (3)
8. Combat Reflexes (4)
9. Constitution (5)
10. Concentration (8)

Playstyle Minion Lord style based with some personal player Combat Arts thrown in so you are bored and your SW can contribute to the Minion's

Looks fine, Tybudd. The worst thing about veiled SW's is that you'll be running along just fine, pwning enemies 10+ levels above you, never getting touched and one of 2 things will happen:

You will get so bored of being 'invulnerable' and have to drop the toon to play something that may actually take some damage at some point, cause you to think or do something.

or, if you stick with it long enough to get into Niob at quite low level (60-70)

and get hit with an Area of Effect - death. :oooo:

The invisible SW does have one drawback in that there is some mechanic with Area of Effect spells that hit the veiled SW's minions/teammates/etc.. that causes damage to him. I've insta-KO'ed lots when I ran one when running into areas with the "lightning streak" combat arts that is used by the Fen Fires, Garema casters, maybe some others. NOT the blue bolt from the Ogre Shamans, that looks like Cobalt Strike.

BEWARE the Area of Effect. :wizard:
