I've given this build 3 separate passes on my own and this is my best attempt. I already knew going into it that endurance management was gonna be a huge problem but oh boy.

Does anyone else have experience with this? I was hoping to pick up Musculature for a true blender experience but that seems like wishful thinking. Thanks in advance.


EDIT: I guess I should add that I don't want to have to rely on Ageless if that's at all possible.

That's an interesting take on it. Fold Space must be fun on that. I guess I will just use Ageless so I can focus on damage.
