I like this guy as a basher, slasher, lunger for various reasons. Has anyone ever managed this bloke?
10-5-17-11-10-9-8

I'm thinking of going...
11-5-17-17-15-10-9

I like the Decisiveness & Initiative of the basher, but there's no well-suited weapon besides the WF.

The slasher version comes up Expert in Initiative. He has better weapon selection than the basher but is less Decisive. Likely to get outjumped??

The lunger is the most well-rounded fighter, but equals the slasher in Decisiveness but is less than the SL in Initiative.

I'm leaning toward basher. Has anyone managed this big smart guy before? How'd he do?

We have managed this guy, but made him a 11-5-17-17-13-11 ST and he did something like 18-7-1 in the arena.

I would not run him as a BA with only the whiffle for a weapon. Consider as an alternative, using the BS, although marginal. It works well.

Given your design, I would choose the SL.

given another opportunity, I would try a 14-5-17-17-10-10-11 BA

I would run it as a BA since it can use the QS as well

Another option (closer to yours) as a basher is:
10-5-17-17-15-9-11

Do one train on Strength, then skills. Gets the QS well suited and keeps the 15 will.

Thanks for the responses, gentlemen. I'll update this page when this guy's career ends with immortality or death, and let everyone know how he did.

I'm sure the Consortium was addressing my design and comment. This warrior does lack the deftness for the QS, and is only well suited to the WF.

Well, I am a little outdated.
BUT - the 11-9 design only has a whiffle tat I see.
If one goes to the 11+ - 11 design I offered, it would bring the QS into play.
Am I missing something, GB? (other than my lost years of youth?)

Seen a lot of guys like this, and I'd probably run it on Assur's design. x-x-x-17-15-x-11 is kind of a standard template for many, many Bashers I've had, and I also have a bit of a soft spot for size 17's. I'm actually trying to get a round robin of sz 17's graduated, for some stupid reason, but I'm only about half-way there.
