View Full Version : [3.P] Question: how to create a Warpriest correctly?

Hello everyone!

Yes, the title might seems to be a little bit lacking of infos. What I wanted to know is: how do I create a prc/build that recreate those oh-so-cool warpriests from warhammer? I'm talking about those guys clad in plate armors, a book in their hand and a warhammer in the other?

I'm really not familiar with warhammer's universe so I only have minor informations on them..but they always inspired my imagination!

What should I insert in a wannabe prc based on them? Ability to cast divine spells while in heavy armor and wielding a warhammer? Smite abilities? Healing/inflicting abilities? Divine Favor as a Spell-like ability? Are they Lawful neutral? Or Lawful good?

All in all, every kind of information you could provide would be well accepted!

Divine spells can already be cast in heavy armor. Only arcane spells suffer from Arcane Spell Failure.

It's been awhile since I played Warhammer Fantasy, and I've never played Empire. I think a good place to start would be here (http://warhammeronline.wikia.com/wiki/Warrior_Priest).

From what they've done with the concept on Warhammer Online, it looks like a primary healer/secondary melee. My suggestion would probably be to do something akin to the Prestige Paladin (http://www.d20srd.org/srd/variant/classes/prestigiousCharacterClasses.htm#prestigePaladin) with some additional healing focus and dropping the special mount/turn undead.
