Flavor Build: Holy Blaster / Undead Hunter -- Advice Appreciated :)

0
Hi all,

So I'm going to try this again -- last idea was a complete non-starter. Anyway, to recap, coming back to the game after a longish hiatus, and looking for a fun flavor build to explore new content with. It doesn't need to be able to take on the hardest content solo or anything (or probably even in groups), but I'd like to be able to solo most things on lower difficulties.

The theme is a sort of holy artificer / undead hunter. The idea is to use the Paladin KotC's core abilities (which at level 12 add 3d6 Light damage, 2d6 Bane vs Evil Outsider, and 2d6 Bane vs Evil; all scale with Melee Power) with a fast weapon, in this case a repeating crossbow. I'm hoping that mixing this with with a radiant rune arm (I happen to have a Tira's Splendor in the bank) and light vulnerability (shield of condemnation from FVS AoV and Rebuke Foe from Exalted Angel) will make for some nice light damage. The added melee/ranged power boost from KotC plus added boosts from Battle Engineer make for a lot of good boostage that helps both the base ranged attack and the added light damage from KotC. Add in some turning abilities, trapping skills, and what I'd hope would be respectable saves. Does this seem playable to you guys? First pass below, although I'd probably use Morninglord instead of Half Elf for the added INT and light damage. Also, I couldn't find the Harper enhancement line in the builder, but I'd plan on getting INT to attack/damage.
