View Full Version : Player Help New Character HELP!

2015-08-18, 11:07 AM
Hello All, I am starting a new Pathfinder Camp with a few friends and was wondering if you great people can give me some advice on my build. Goal is to build a main front line DPS, since my group really is in need.

My DM has approved minor change to Titan Mauler, to make it actually good, as followed:

"Massive Weapon: At 3rd level, a Titan Mauler becomes skilled in the use of the massive weapons looted from him titanic foes. This allows him to use weapons designed for creatures larger than his size, always treating them as two handed weapons, and applying a cumlative -2 on attack rolls per size category difference. The Total attack roll penalty is reduced by 1, and this reduction is increased by 1 every 3rd level (to a minimum of 0.) This ability replaces trap sense. "

He also goes with a 18, 16, 14, 12, 11, 10, start stat system, instead of rolls or buy point system.

This is a complete build I am aiming for. We are starting level one so I will be getting the feats and all as we go, but this is my general plan as of now.

Well do you want the higest dps or do you want to have high dps and be a mundane?
For higest dps one trick was to find an item allowing you to cast mind seed then to use it on your familiar(while being a level 20 wizard you also cast PAO to turn it into an humanoid for making it a valid tarfet) and so now your familiar is a level 12 wizard that can cast the spell duplicate familiar and who can be duplicated so duplicate him and ask its duplicate to duplicate the original one and restart with the new duplicates producing new familiar duplicate at an exponential rate now those duplicates can cast many offensive spells in one round and teleport and cast all the spells you are ever going to need and with this you have a dps superior to everything in the universe since it is >2^(the number of rounds - 6)
and then the GM hits you with 10000000 books and rage at you and say you should not build exponential armies of familiars.

Can I suggest you re-post this in the 3.5 sub-forum, or have the mods move it. You might get more responses.
