oh that. here is why. we do need monk 11 for 2 hit flurry. that is set. 9 left. we do need at least duelist 5 for AC stacking. that leaves us 4 levels in which we can take whatever. it is true that it could be rogue. problem is if we take rogue 4 we are missing 4 AC from duelist. and we are stacking AC, remember? it will also push out our second monk flurry hit to level 19-20 that is not realistically happening in this game. with my split we at least get it if we do everything. 18 is kinda realistic. 19 is only achievable with grind. so we might as well abandon monk or duelist levels in that case. as it is monk concept we'd abandon duelist, losing at least 5 AC.
InEffect: why would you need finesse training for Str-based dual-wielder? the whole point is to NOT get dex while having full access to TWF and heavy armor.
Mastererrant: um sorry that went into the wron block I was reading you monk stuff. I was referring to a finesse monk...lol..Doh...sorry
now to damage. rogue 4 would give us 2d6 sneak dice. = 7 average precision damage. duelist gives us 5 damage for 5 levels. so essentially we are trading 2 damage for 5 AC. I will not take that deal.
vivisectionist mutagen is always good. problem is it is not always online. if we take rogue4/vivisectionist1 we get 11.5 avg damage and 3 conditional AC. still not worth it due to conditional part.
now good part of that is we'd be able to drop bard. still the AC loss on AC stacking build is painful.
TL:DR if we were able to get to 20 at all it would be monk11/ro4/duelist5 build.
