Well, back when I built him, I had the Scimitar of Speed in mind, which was the perfect weapon for him to not only survive, but actually level up a bit easier with the extra AC and bonus attack gained with perma-haste. It was instrumental in getting him through the first 12 levels. What a PAIN! However, the fact that he focuses on a Scimitar doesn’t mean he can’t carry around a 2-hander (preferably a Heavy Flail for Bludgeoning damage) and switch up when the situaion calls for it. However, his AC is terrible enough as is with no Tumble as a class skill and 8 DEX, and Expertise is a feat that will be useful to him all along. Not to mention the Taunt / Expertise combo, which is absolutely incredible if used properly. It makes otherwise unplayable builds playable, albeit very slowly. So, I wouldn’t advise dropping Expertise at all. I got him to level 22 on old WoG before the crash happened and we all lost all characters.
