Well you're not adding a lot of sunshine as well... :\

Anyways: good point with the Deep Leap. But there I made the guy so squishy that you really have to place you initial shots carefully (with Dazzling Lights and so on). So once you managed to set up the perfect opener it was cheesy - and if not you were screwed. That gave me bit of adrenaline every now and then. :)

Also I didn't know that it would be so powerful when I did my playthrough with it. ;)

After playing this character for a bit, I can safely say that I'm Commander Shepard and this is my favourite multiclass combo on the Citadel.

Thanks, it is really good build with Abydon's challenge too because weapon maintenance is a b****. And on this build you use fists.

 

I was thinking of adding Blade turning for even more salvation of time shenanigans, but don't know what to get rid of as everything is pretty essential. I guess you could live without raised torment or flagellant's path  but those are such cool abilities and I hate using an ability without upgrade like torment's reach as it is not essential but than I am feeling I am not milking out an ability to its full potential if I use it. 

 

Also I small change could be on early levels to take Force of Anguish instead of Dance of Dance until you can respec for torment's reach and the upgraded Enduring Death - helps streamline dps in the early game.

All you need early game are Swift Strikes and auto attacks. I prefer saving Wounds for MIG bonus (more useful to me since I started out with a bit different stats). I'm not convinced about the usefulness of Enduring Dance because as a melee fighter, I am getting hit a lot. Blade Turning does sound tempting though.

I stumbled upon this build and will dig it up. Anyone knows if it's still viable?

Believe they nerfed the spiritual weapon fist stacking with Monk fists ... but besides that, should still be OK. 

 

I really don't know why everyone whined about it being so overpowered ... It wasn't the be-all/end-all vs. other taking advantage of game mechanics like the Electric Dyslexic build or even no-rest runs.  I mean, hey it wasn't like you were One-Punch Man smacking down dragons and the entire VTC.  For the casual player, in a single-player game, it didn't seem like a big deal to me.  But hey, it got nerfed, so there's that.

Bummer, was enthusiastic to try that build :/ Pity I couldn't find the changes to this anywhere in the patch notes from last few patches.
