My very first thought was striker 9-8-10-21-9-16-11.... but then I came up with 9-8-10-17-15-12-13(could do 11 ST 11 DF) WS/PS What would you do? I'm just tired of this striker design, I've probably ran at least 15 of these and see them everywhere. Any ideas or discussion would be appreciated.. I've got 2 foot of snow outside and some time to kill!

I might try this... 7-8-10-21-15-12-11 PS 10/10/8/4/8/10 Starting skills, hope for good damage. Still have to run it like a STer. Same numbers as a SL 16/10/12/0/8/11 Might have to train ST/CN a couple times for better physicals.

That rollup is very limited on designs because of low str and you don't want to give up the 21 wit. So I only see 2 styles this guy could be a ST or PS going 9-8-10-21-11-12-13.

Don't want a ST, how about this design (I usually don't like my PRs to have so much speed but we are limited with design):

9-8-10-21-9-12-15 PR/ST/PS/OTP

Just throwing other possible options for you. I have had some success with STs designed like this and they tend to like TPs on toast

Unfortunately for you, this guy just makes a better ST than anything else.

I'd probably just go 7-8-10-21-15-12-11 or 11-8-10-21-9-14-11 ST and look for a PS or WS from a different replacement.

Definitely not a WS (again with the high sp?), I see this as a textbook Striker. I'd go with AOB's 2nd numbers, good damage is more important than a few skills one way or another.
Another word of advice: don't try to make a rollup into what you want it to be. Give it what it needs, then decide. It's kind of like the NFL draft, just pick the best player available, instead of trying to reach for that QB in the first round, who really shoulda been a 3rd rounder.

Agree with OAB's standard, but nice, striker. Would welcome rolling up a boatload of these for probably tournament entry.

If you don't want a striker, DA it. Rolling Eyes

As is often the case, striker will generate the 'best' expected results

But that doesn't mean you have to conform! You can turn many/most striker setups into the other offensive styles (PS, B, SL, L, AB). In this case, I'd go with PS/B because of the endurance.

I'm also more than willing to run low will hybrids. Again, because the endurance is so low, I'd probably limit this one to TP, with my design being:
11-8-10-21-9-12-11 TP (+2 points to taste - and I can make an argument for anywhere - Con for HP, Wil for End, Spd for Decise, Dft for Att/Par)

He sub-standard for what I usually make, but I'd be willing to run this guy in the arena without second thought. The design likely kills his tourney potential, though - the striker makes my tourney squad unless he rolls cursed.
