I am currently playing with a level 33 (4 level fighter, 10 Level Ironheart, 19 level Monk). I am wanting to take a semi class. I don't know which one. Help me please!

I am an unarmed Monk, who with the 4 levels in fighter gets an extra attack per round, which is nice. Being a monk only wearing robes, Ironheart helps with AC. I am wanting to take a semi class to make him better at doing what he does best (Stealthy, Speedy, melee attacking).

I know it isn't a semi-class, but I am thinking about doing the prestige class Firestarter. I meet all requirements except Conflagral as diety, but I can change that.

Any Suggestions?

Assuming you are basing your melee attacks off your Strength, and *not* using the weapon finesse feat.... I recommend Warhulk as the best semi-class for a strength based melee build.

Even if you use weapon finesse, Warhulk will help with damage output, and attack bonus.

Dave that is what I was thinking Was Warhulk...You have seen Bram before so you saying this does help.

I have it both ways...I went strength to begin with and then used finesse in later levels.

the Warhulk's Channel Power will be of use to any melee build... even a Dex based one.... because at level 5, you gain +10 to hit with it active... this is a HUGE benefit, not to mention the permanent +4 strength bonus.

Perhaps not as big as popping an elder beholder or dracolich out of your pocket..... but still VERY powerful.

As a dex-based monk/ ironheart, Jinx has found warhulk to be pretty darned useful

You know you won't be able to take another Prestie Class with the three classes you have, right?

You can take the semi-class, but once you've reincarnated you'll have to take it over again

Channeling grants temporary strength as well, which is also useful to dex based meleers (or archers with high enough mighty on their weapon to benefit from the STR boost).

I do belive you'd have to drop the ironheart to take firestarter

You will not be able to take Firestarter as a class, even reincarnating, unless you have Conflagral as patron deity (the raw elemental fire is a gift from her). And the only way to change deities with an established character is to become a blackguard (and switching to Ragnor or Sorgath worship in the process)...your choice of patron deity is otherwise permanent.
