 Here is roughly my build except the builder I used didnt have the Destiny stuff up to date, when I can I will post a screenshot of my Destiny work. Another Note, normally I take the two rogue sooner but I impromptu chose to do my Warbuckler build instead of by Swashchanter variant, which is basically the same but tier 5 in swashbuckler and full 20 bard cos I get evasion in the swashbuckler capstone. I'm glad to get this posted though cos I am working on doing this build in different races and scoring the dps differences so that way when I post this in the DDO forums people who may not have access to all races can have an Idea of which races they may or may not want to do.

A build nearly as old as the class, the FvS evoker has many names but a singular effectiveness - excellent.

The goal: Your party stays alive. Everything else around you dies.

Favored Soul 20
Lawful Neutral Deep Gnome

Implosion is my bread and butter, aided by the reduced cooldown from the Arcane Alacrity past life toggle. Six seconds may not seem like much of a reduction on a 60-second cooldown spell, but in longer quests it allows for one or two more Implosions through the course of a run. My Necromancy DCs are also fairly good, allowing me to fling Destruction and Slay Living at mobs with weaker fort saves like casters, and Undeath to Death at those pesky undead mobs that don't like to explode.

Crowd control is workable with Soundburst, Cometfall, Greater Command, and even Hold Person as options. (Heighten them all.) I also have Energy Drain, Cause Fear, and Bestow Curse to help them land if needed.

I can also nuke, using twin Sun Bolts to do massive damage to at least a single target (but often multiples - those lives as a ranged toon taught me how to line stuff up for maximum carnage.) I also have Cometfall (all metas) and Divine Wrath (again, all metas) for AoE damage. I don't do as much as a sorc, sure, but I still put a massive hurting on a cluster of mobs.

Healing is accomplished with a rotation of Divine Wrath, Beacon of Grace, Mass Cure Moderate Wounds (SLA from the Exalted Angel tree) and Mass Cure Serious Wounds, as well as enlarged Heal, Rejuvenation Cocoon, and max-meta'd Close Wounds. You've got the gas to heal raids, and even without Empower Healing, people stay upright.

With this build, I can go on the offensive and still support the group, excelling at both. It befits my aggressive playstyle.

Because this character is not up to date and I dont really like the other one that might be up to date.  I do change some of the Epic destinies when I hit cap.

This build offers excellent trapping skills, deals decent dps (even after U45), is able to resurrect and heal with scrolls, plus can take a punch.  Any race should work.  I generally run in Shiradi, regularly using T5 Hunt's End (not listed in Character Builder Lite since not been updated for a bit) along with Sniper Shot, Shoot Later, and Know the Angles.  If I want an HP boost, I use LD.  No Holds Barred used situationally.  "Echoes of Martial" is "Martial Hymn."

Gear Sets: Ravenloft's Silent Avenger for lvls 10-14, Sharn Wallwatch 15-28 (!!!), Sharn's Leg. Wallwatch 29-30.  Crossbows: Vorpal/Holy lvls 1-9, add Ratcatcher at 8, Barovian at 10, Nightshade Shooter at 15, Thunder-Forged at 26, Hallowed Splinters at 28 (still need) or Leg. Nightshade Shooter at 29. Trap skills enhanced with crafted items.  

Future goal: Craft gear to cover stats, abilities, and defenses

 Fire Bombadier Alchemist   " The Hawt Pyromaniac "

Heya Everyone, Littlemama here.
This is my Build for Reaper Life 4.
yes, I love color having been an Artist for long time and my notes are not in a fancy builder thingy as I always use scribble notes in a pad on my desk.
ok so let's go:

Race is Iconic Sun Elf, used a +1 lesser heart of wood to go pure Alchemist.

True Neutral

Starting stats:
Str 10, Dex 13, Con 15, Int 20, Wis 8, Cha 8 ~ level ups are all Intelligence
Littlemama has +8 tome to all stats.

Feats are : Maximize, Quicken, Heighten, Accelerate Spell, at level 12 take: Liquid Luck, Evasion, Spell focus: Conjuration, Greater Conjuration, Transmutaion, with Magical training I took Mental toughness, Improved Mental toughness, with Alchemical studies Spellcasting I chose Pyrite and Verudite, Advanced Alchemical Studies Pyrite, Master of Spell Vials, Toughness and second Toughness. Embolden Spell, Epic Spell Focus: Conjuration, Epic Spell Power Fire 

Skills : tons of Skill points available to use all over the place, most in: maxing my UMD, Spellcraft, Heal, Concentration, then had tons more for all else that is useful, hide, jump, balance, spot, move silently, swim, tumble.. and lots more..

My enhancements are as follows:

My spell list as follows: https://ddowiki.com/page/Alchemist_spells

My Reaper Trees are as follows:

Epic I ran in Draconic.

My Gear sets, I love using the Heroic and Legendary Esoteric Initiate set, the pair of sickles, Heroic and Legendary Wild Flame and Frost, and other gear mixes and self crafted stuffs. End game I got my multivials DC at 114 ! woot ! totally fun  

I love my Sorcerers, and Alchemist has been most fun. Especially turning mobs into Frogs for Voodu to tank! 😊 

I will also post my information on using a +1 lesser heart of wood on your Iconic Character to go pure something.

~ hugs, Littlemama

Hi again, Littlemama here, wanted to add to my build post: 

Changing your first level of Iconic into something else with a +1 Lesser heart of wood.

a MAJOR tip: you don't need to empty your TR cache when doing a lesser of any kind. It remains intact. If you empty it you will have all your stuffs in your pack and full bank and will end up having to sell and crunch all your good stuffs that you worked so hard to get and craft to get room. More of us have accidentally done that than we care to admit, without realizing because we did not know.

ok lets make the change:

First level up your Iconic to 15 with what you wish to be/create.

Go to reincarnation grove and select what you wish to do with your +1 Lesser heart of wood. Log out.
Then,
In Character creation when you begin, look carefully at your creation screen.

Do NOT choose Iconic, because you already are an Iconic character. You change to what you are wishing that first level to be right away.

for an example, for Reaper life 4, I wished to change my first level Iconic Sun elf from a Cleric to Alchemist:
Select SPECIALIST and then choose the ALCHEMIST ...Path is custom. ( will show you how it looks below )
Boom, you are good to go.

p.s. ...((OR, maybe I wanted to change the first level of my Deep Gnome Wizard to become a Druid, I would select to "Spell"/Druid.
OR, if I wanted to change my Shadar-kai first level Rogue to something else, just pay attention to your style and class choice))

here is what it looks like for me to change first level to Alchemist: first I choose play style SPECIALIST:

[img] [/img]

 

then I chose class ALCHEMIST ... path custom .... and continued

[img] [/img]

Just wanted to add, this is important !!

The +1 Lesser change that I speak of in my thread, is just to simply change the first level class that comes with an Iconic character.
This gets changed immediately when you open your character screen and choose 'reincarnate' and the second you enter your reincarnation character creation screen as I show above.
When you are multiclassing however, and wish to change more, then that is when you would utilize perhaps a higher lesser heart ( +1 ,+3, +5, all the way up to using a +20 heart of wood).
https://ddowiki.com/page/Lesser_Reincarnation   covers a lot of questions about lesser reincarnating

One must be VERY careful tho, as you are only allowed to have THREE classes in your build. At no point during the reincarnation process can a character have more than 3 classes in total.

Pease do so carefully and slowly and don't do it if you are tired or weary. There is a give and take dynamic to multiclassing.
If it is your first try at multiclassing, then perhaps try a build that is posted on our Build forum or the ddo forums and see if it is something that may match your playstyle preferences. You will loose the availability of a capstone when multiclassing and have some limitations, but sometimes the results are just awesome fun and if you are ok with that, then that is good.

Now I myself would not recommend multiclassing right out the door on a new toon when new to the game. I have tried multiclassing on my toons that have rather good stats (eaten a supreme ability tome of +6 or higher) some good basic past lives, extra skill tomes etc.

What if you want to 'tweek' your build? Have I changed feats after heroic levels, while running during my epics levels? yes, I have... you can still do that, but researched it carefully first, to see if it will not change things too dramatically and gone to visit Fred in house Jorasco or did the quest in the Marketplace to change a feat. Usually only to try something different and see how I like it, because I do experiment

I hope this helps clarify some points,
so with all that,
wishing you happy loots, awesome crits and fun,
~ Littlemama 😊

Voodu's Reaper Life 4 15 alchemist/5 paladin no dps tank

Please note that this is not a guide.  Just showing what I did for RL4.  This is a formidable tank but has no dps and no soloability.  Good for high skull group play with support.  Would not recommend this for low skull tanking as it's tankability is more than what's needed for low skull content.

Race: Bladeforged.  I mostly chose this because I could use a Bladeforged iconic past life and Bladeforged default level is paladin and this build uses 5 levels of paladin.

As an iconic starting at 15, I took 5 levels of paladin and 10 levels of alchemist then took remaining levels of alchemist as I leveled to 20.

Enhancements: Take racial reconstruction SLA during heroics but respec during epics if you're doing high skull reaper it doesn't heal enough to make it worth taking.

Feats: Shield Mastery, Improved Shield Mastery, Combat Expertise, Adamantine Body, Bulwark of Defense, Epic Toughness, Epic Damage Reduction, Elusive Target, Deific Warding, Scion of the Plane of Earth (took this for big PRR)

Alchemist Feats: Quicken Spell, Accelerate Spell, Empower Healing

Skills: max intimidate, balance, jump, concentration, UMD, spot, 1 point in tumble, remaining points in spellcraft

Attack rotation: Poisoned Strike, Wave of Poison SLA, Poison Breath.  This doesn't do much dps but is just used to generate hate.

Twists: Martial Hymn, Meld into Darkness, Damage Reduction, Rejuvenation Cocoon

Paladin spell: Protection from Evil

During epic levels if you want to do slayers to level quickly, switch to Draconic Incarnation, equip a fire stick and Burnscar Sash and swap to spells Multivial of Flame, Cindersmoke, Molotov Cocktail, Elemental Combination.  DPS isn't great but good enough for epic slayers.

My endgame gear:

Eyes: LGS material opposition

Armor: Legendary Ironheart

Bracers: Arm of the Agressor

Ring1: Stolen Signet of ir'Wynarn

Ring2: Circle of malevolence

Boots: Boots of Blessed Travels

Gloves: LGS material opposition

Belt: LGS material opposition

Cloak: LGS material opposition

Trinket: Legendary Planar Compass

Necklace: Legendary Standard Issue Sigil

Head: Legendary Standard Issue Faceplate

Weapon: LGS radiance

Shield: Legendary Crystalline Ward

 

During heroics I used Ironheart, Standard Issue Faceplate and Standard Issue Sigil 3 piece Guardian of the Gates set.  I also used Fanion shield to avoid arcane spell failure.
