Started playing D&D with a new group and got 7 levels into my Dwarf Rogue before deciding I didn't what to do next. I was up to now playing as a stealthy thief, two weapon fighter. But our combat encounters have been testing me a lot more lately since out main tank died, leaving one other melee character aside from me (a Swash).
I am just stuck with what I should do next, available content is the 3.5 books, include completes. Nothing online or home brewed.
We had 72 points available, currently my stats are:
- Str 10
- Dex 20
- Con 17
- Int 12
- Wis 10
- Cha 10
- Weapon Finesse
- Rapid Assault (extra d6 damage at start of combat)
- +1 undecided yet
- Pair of +2 daggers
- Standard leather armor
- +2 sneak boots (hide and move silently)
My original plan was to take Assassin prestige class, but now I'm thinking about taking some fighter dips for some extra hardiness. I ruled out Swordsage and Swashbuckler, because we have 2 Sorcs and a Swash, so I don't want to stack the party.
What class dips/feats/skills or type of equipment should I aim for to increase my combat capability. I am probably not going to be able to apply sneak attack more than once per fight so i'll need to be able to deal more damage/survive more.
