View Full Version : Best spell choices for Advanced Learning

I was wondering what are generally the best spells for Advanced learning the beguiler ability that allows you to pick up Sor/Wiz spells once every 3 levels, and please do not say go look at TLN's guide to wizards, because its actually more difficult when you have only one to choose (better than none but still hurts to choose) A list for levels would help too.

Shadow Conjuration and Shadow Evocation, greater and lesser versions. any really bitchin enchantment or illusion spells in the Spell Compendium that catch your eye; that's mostly what the feat is for, after all.

Ray of Stupidity is a very solid choice for level 7. It's a neat spell and it metamagics well.

I recommend looking in the Handbook to Building a Strong Beguiler (http://forums.gleemax.com/showthread.php?t=805782), where this is covered very well. They also cover taking PrCs for better Advanced Learning selections... and have just about every aspect of Beguiler optimization possible.

If you can take a prestige class for one level before level 7, it benefits you a lot. That allows you to get your advanced learning at caster level 8, which means you can take shadow conjuration.
