.5x dodge until you get 640. Or drop 101 for the TP's.

I've tried this before, and MAYBE sword/board you could pull it off. TWC, you have no chance of truly surviving easily, short of uber gear.

Stunseed version one was .5x spells, and 2x THW/OHE. That's why there is a Stunseed version two.

I went giant and pure ranger spell circle. Didnít need any extra spells, maybe a small statue every once and a while. I certainly did not have uber gear. Pretty sure I did a 4x flaring longsword/main guache combo.

I only played close to 20 and was pretty happy. But I will concede to the more experienced.

I suppose i can .5x the Dodge, I was trying to keep as close to the above training path as possible. Granted if 1x TWC is good enough I'll just do that, but my gut instinct says 1x won't cut it down the road.

That extra MnS was there just for giggles, I won't be training in another spell rank this train since it would be that one. I'll try the .5x dodge and see what that gets me. I'd love to fit 2x TWC in there though without droppin that dodge at all. Ah well, can't have it all

Dropping dodge to .5x is a fine suggestion. Or do .75x dodge and .75x CM. Both those will free up points.

Well, so far it's lookin like .5x Dodge. Another question, how viable would it be to .5x instead? I know my Mana return wouldn't be so keen, but what do you others think?

I have a friend who has skipped about 10 HP ranks at level 50, but he uses his combat manuevers a lot. I don't really think .5x HP is a good idea at all though. Especially if you are uphunting you're gonna need a good bit of mana.

*nod* I really don't w anna drop CM down .75x, 1x does me good, so I'll just drop down the dodge to .5x and see how I go with Mobility.

Thanks folks

I played through 50 levels with 0 dodge as a THW ranger and did fine.
