    [​IMG] Ok, So i'm playing a bard. So far he's dual-wielding Rapiers (Elf Proficiency), and having Shurikens as back-up missile weapons. Is this a good set of weapons? My normal combat procedure comes as follows: Mage Armour, Resistance, Bard Song, then I throw a few Shurikens as I enter the room or whatever, then hack 'em with Rapiers.
    Weapon Finesse (Dex 16+2+1=19)
    Weapon Focus: Rapier
    Improved Two Weapon Fighting
    Two Weapon Fighting

    Are these a good set of Feats/Weapons? Or should I have skipped the Dual-Wield and gone for others? Such as Extended Spell and Silent Spell...combat casting?

    And what would you recommend for a Ranger? Halfling, too, so He can't use 2-handed weapons, but Longswords as 2 handed!

    Gopher, for your bard, that rapiers sound like a great choice. High dex, weapon finesse, etc ... all make for lots of hits, good damage, and (most importantly) staying in character.

    For a halfling ranger ... wow.

    I'd say hand axes might be a good choice (I found magic hand axes very early on in my game), or battle axe/hand axe (not sure about the battle axe as one handed for a halfling....)

    Plenty of good short bows and light crossbows out there too!

    Happy Hunting :good:

    Off handaxe is a good offhand weapon, and is available relatively early on. Are longswords one-handed for haffers? If so, that would be a good main weapon. Scimitars are good too (if they're one-handed). I never found any good rapiers in my game, but that's probably because I played a cleric and never used them.
