The Transporter Edit
Here's a build by Carnivore on the COBoards it's a solid Two Weapon Fighting build with an focus on passive damage bonus. Also got the nifty ability to teleport quite often making him a dangerous threat to everyone on the battle field. He might suffer a bit from MAD but nothing that a Belt of Magnificiance can't fix !
Stats are very important to this character. Your key stats will be :
Dex : You will get your Dex to Attack and 2xDex to damage. Double that with your Light Armor and Two Weapon Fighting, you are going to need a lot of this !
Int : You get your Int to damage and get a lot of skill points from that, you need a good score here
Con : As a melee character, you need at least a decent score
Str : As always a good score can't hurt but you get much less benefit than a regular fighter
Wis : You do get Wis to AC but nothing to justify spending a lot of ressources here. Still usefull for Will saves
Cha : Nice for flavor but overall not needed at all.
- For a 32 point buy system: Str 14, Dex 14, Con 14, Int 14, Wis 14, Cha 10
- For a 28 point buy system: Str 14, Dex 14, Con 14, Int 14, Wis 8, Cha 8
All your Level points should go to Dex

This character will have a lot of skill points as well as Trapfinding, if you choose to go Human, Able Learner is a solid choice.

Crusader ...... 11th lvl initiator ... 6th lvl manuvers
Also he has Access to a few Shadow Hand manuvers and other Manuvers(Devoted Spirit,White Raven,etc...)... but Shadow Hand also have some Quick Teleport abilities, and great combat manuvers and Stances.

2x Dex to Damage(CoC 2, and Shadow Blade feat... using Lightblade(Shortsword)
Str to Damage
Int to Damage
Wis to AC
Dex to AC
Attack bonus = 16 (BAB)+ 11 (DEX) +5 (Enhancement) +1 (Haste) -1 TWF (Twin Exotic)= +32
Full Attack with TWF/ITWF and Speed Weapon =
Main Hand : +32/+32/+27/+22/+17 Off Hand +32/+27 and 11 AoO @+32 Robilars Gambit
basically he gets 14 Attacks @ +32 and +27/+27/+22/+17 ... all doing Average +47 Damage each Hit .... if all hit he does 846 Damage/round..not too bad for a 2 Weapon Finesse fighter who doesnt need Power Attack, and he heals 18d6 per round if all hit ..... this doesnt even take into consideration Martial Manuvers from Swordsage or Crusader
+35 to Damage without counting Weapon Enhancements or anything other than Attributes, total Weapon Damage= +35+ 5 enhancement +1d6 Vampiric +1d6 Weapon= Average +47 Damage each Hit
