Hello.

Sorry if I didnt answer to your post before but answer to a such opened question is kinda hard... and there is a lot of things to fix in your build.... and huuuge number of things... And since I don't want to tell you «how to play», it's hard to me to answer you.

But since you asked me, here are some advices.

First off all, I will go downright and tell you to reconcider to creat a new character if your are not too high level...
Sorry.
:wah:
Highlander is realy an huge misstake for a fencer build and gives you absolutly nothing while you lose all the tools that Peltasta could give you.

That said, let's look to your others classes:

• Swordsman C1:
You should not max your swordsman damages skills, you don't realy need Thrust (since you allready have a lot of Pierce type attacks as fencer) and Bash lv3 is enough to get the «knockdown» attribute.
Put thoses points in Gung Ho (minimum 3 lvl for unlock attribute), Concentrate and Pain Barrier (minimum 1 lvl).
• Barbarian C1-3:
If you want to grab Giant Swing for CC (or fun) one level is far enough.
You should increase more Warcry or/and Frenzy if you want to use Barbarian C3 to his full potential. Removes points from Helm Chopper (1 lvl for stun is enough) and Cleave.
• Fencer C1-2:
You should remove points from Attaque Coquille (it s only used for it's effect) and put them into Preparation (1 lvl) and into Sept Etoiles. It will give you an additionnal combo for high Pierce damages.

About stats, an hybrid tanky dps would be the best.
Best way is a mix of STR and CON.
Ratio is up to you, 2:1... 3:1... 1:1...
Do not invest points in DEX nor SPR, just get thoses stats with gears.

I hope it will help you.
;)
If you have any questions, you are welcome.

Actualy, STR is better than DEX for damages output.
You will hit harder w/o critical hit with a STR build than with a critical hit with a DEX build.
Just get DEX and critical hit on your gear and you will be fine.

Btw, it's more a mater of preference, so you can go for a DEX:CON build but i am sure it wont be as good as STR:CON since DEX doesnt increase with ranks, evasion is cap to 85% and critical formula have diminishing return.

http://www.tosbase.com/tools/skill-simu ... dri9o9mje/ is one of the most popular builds.

You don't have to agree about stats distribution but there is one thing, dexterity gives accuracy, at some point or with rank 8 9 10 you may miss too much when hitting.
It does not really matter if you go highlander route or barbarian route, the difference in dps is negligible.
Also, the combo is just buffs from all previous ranks.
If you happen to tank, and don't have much ping =>
1 buffs
2 taunt
3 weapon switch 2 hands cross guard rank 15 (highlander) > after block swicth rapiere + karacha dagger > preparation (rank 1)
4 attaque coquille
5 sept etoiles (rank 10) will do x4 his total damage the entire duration
6 lunge
7 skull swing > skyliners all charges > crosscuts all charges > vertical slash all charges (if you have vubbe fighter gloves these skills can hit x3 targets instead of 1).

If I'm not wrong, from official forum the 30% strenght buff gives us 5% damage or 150 physical attack.
This and the 70% strenght bonus (rank 7) if I'm right totally shame dexterity dps build fencers, tanks fencers are another case. To make a big stereotype imagine a full strenght fencer getting 500/750+ more physical attack than a full dexterity fencer, how is the dexterity fencer supposed to catch up in damage?
The accuracy and critical rate come from gems and gear.

Here is the build I recommand you :

Swordsman C1 / Peltasta C1 / Barbarian C3 / Fencer C2

It gives you the ability to tank for your party and dealing great AoE slash damages in the same time.
Fencer will give you extra survivability with % evasion and auto-block attacks in addition to give you great single target nuke combo and slash damages improvements.

You can switch somes points depending on your preferences but here are somes must have:
- 3/5 Bash (unlock knock down attribute)
- 3/5 Gung Ho (unlock enhance attribute)
- 1+/5 Pain Barrier (CC immunity is a must have but 15 or 19 sec is not a big deal)

- 10/10 Warcy (max your p.atk)
- 10/10 Frenzy (max your p.atk)
- 10/10 Seism (greatest AoE attack of your build)
- 1/15 Helm Chopper (for the stun and an additionnal strike damages ability)
- You can spend remaining points between Pouncing (1~5) and Cleave (9~13) depending on wich one you like the most

- 1/10 Attaque Coquille (for pierce armor penetration and an additionnal strike damages ability)
- 1/5 Preparation (for x2 pierce damages buff)
- 10/10 Lunge (+50% slash damages)
- 10/10 Falconnade (main damage ability and extra block when well used)
- Remaining points in Sept Etoiles (for an additionnal combo)

For stats you can go for a mix of STR and CON (3:1 or 2:1).

Main combos:
Lunge (> Helm Chopper) > Cleave > Seism
Lunge (> Helm Chopper) > Cleave > Falconnade > Falconnade >...
Attaque Coquille > Preparation > Sept Etoiles

As far as I know, of all Highlanders skills, only Crossguard requires Two-Handed sword.
