Comments and Questions

So, this should be the final build for Essence 5 (barring any mistakes on my part). It's easy enough to drop it to Essence 3 if someone wants to challenge it on that playing field, although the character feels more complete at this level. I've made it so he doesn't auto die to surprise attacks, he has decent offense, big defense pools and soak, and more or less is as well balanced as i can see. With heaven and earth stairway, it seems like I should be able to adapt to almost any strange attack or circumstance that comes up. --Sabis

Couple of thing I've noticed, mind you I don't have my MRB book with me:

Virues can't be raised above 3 without bonus points, so you can't have 1,1,3 and 4 at character creation.
Raising your virtues with xp doesn't raise your willpower
Backrgounds likewise can't go above 3 without bonus points, so I'm assuming you spent the 2bp to get artifact to 4. If that's the case you have 8 dots of backgrounds.

Other than that looks very good. - Bencyclopedia

Exalted 2nd Ed, page 75: "You cannot raise a character's starting virtue above 4 without spending bonus points." It was 3 in 1st ed, IIRC, but they changed it to 4 in 2nd ed, in the text and the chart (unless there's errata on those that I missed). But you're right, raising w/ xp does not raise my WP. Silly me leaving calculation till the end. =) Yep, 1 bp for Artifact 3-4, and then 1 bp for an extra dot of artifact. (9 in total)

Right you are indeed, I hadn't noticed the change. Backgrounds however cost 2bp if being raised above 3. - Bencyclopedia

Ahh crap, knew i screwed up. =p Fixed. Droped my Dodge, droped my Conviction, re-bought my Dodge, bought two extra dots in dodge specialty. -Sabis
