    Default [3.5] Most fun PrC

    Assuming you're making a new character, who gets to take one and only one PrC, which would it be and why? You can be any class, and any power level, but obviously if the class and PrC are too weak then you're unlikely to have as much fun in a party of well-made characters.

    If I was in a really CN mood, I may well take the homebrewed Drunken Master that improves Monk (rather than doing whatever it wants to). Then, I'd try to optimze it enough to put it on par with the rest of the group. That would be fun, I think.

    Probably Dracolexi for my Kobold Sorcerer. I love the fluff, and with a good DM, the words of power can be a lot of fun.

    The kensei PrC intrigues me a little, but I've never played it.

    I think the Malconvoker makes a very strong case, personally. Though it also benefits from taking several other PrCs (Master Specialist, Sacred Exorcist, Paragnostic Apostle, Archmage), a Focused Conjurer with Rapid Summoning and Enhanced Summoning can do well with it.

    I've never even heard of that one, what does it do?

    Eternal Blade. You get a floating sphere following you everywhere. And it can manifest into humanoid form.

    Great form at parties.
    It's been a bit, GitP. If you're reading this, you're either digging through old stuff, or I've posted for the first time in forever.

    If you want to stay in touch, reach out to me on twitter (same username).

    The best answer is always to ask your DM.
    Unless you're the DM, in which case you should talk to your players.

    bard 7/sublime chord 10 , bard spells and scor spells, letting you cast 9th level scor/wiz spells before the scor or wiz do... now my DM lets me switch out spells at every level up (as opposed to one spell every few level)

    its powerful, its not batman or Codzilla, but fun, can do anything with proper spell selection (plus UMD as a class skill to fill in holes) having mass-cures and the disintegrate before their respective classes do (tho you have to pick one or the other)

    mix that with that bardic music meta-magic feat (whose name eludes me) and you have good times

    Paranoia is fun, other games are not; play paranoia (and also 3.5, I play that alot too)

    I like Wild Mage because, with a little effort, you can have a pretty awesome table of random effects for your Reckless Dweomer.

    Dracolexi is in Races of the Dragon, and it's based around a character (Bard or Sorcerer) that learns how to speak draconic the way that ancient dragons spoke it long ago, thus invoking their arcane abilities.

    My favorite is probably Anima Mage - all the RP and mechanical fun of Binding, plus a boatload of arcane (or even psionic!) power.

    Yeah, what he said.

    EDIT: Or were you asking about a kensei? A kensei basically chooses one weapon, and strives to obtain complete mastery over it.

    For the moment, I'm thinking about a backup character for a desert campaign.
    Sorcerer base, and then Sandshaper...

    One really shouldn't overlook the opportunity to play Imhotep. ;)

    2 PrC's I've been wanting to actually use in a fight.
    1-Swiftblade.
    2-Witchslayer with mageslayer feats. Made a character like this, but only played one day, two fights. Never got to use my witchslayer or mageslayer abilities. :(

    Chameleon.

    Huge range of spells. With a base casting class you can craft almost anything without wasting a feat. With a base ToB class you can pick different stances or maneuvers every day.

    Initiate of the Sevenfold Veil, because being invincible is awesome

    Dread Witch: I love taking that with my fear focused Hexblade. Take that Mr Mcpaladinface.

    Fiend of Possession is fun too. You get to play as something different anytime you feel like it.

    My personal favorite is the 3.5 Constructor. A shaper/constructor is only beaten by an illusionist/master illusionist/shadowcraft mage for sheer versatility.

    Beyond that, thrallherd, if you do it right. I like turning my thrallherds into unwilling necromancers. Hooray for respawning undead thralls!

    For flavor, a Shugenja that multiclasses into Blood Magus after convincing the DM to let divine casters qualify.

    A divine champion (CD) seems like a pretty flavorful choice, and with the right domain selection and/or a liberal DM, it can be quite powerful too.

    Hidecarved dragon...What?

    okay, okay, if this is for a PC race/class, I really like dragon prophet. I'd probably go wizard or sorcerer, probably the latter, taking Falazure, Io, Garyx, Tamara, and Tiamat.

    I would use a wizard or sorcerer and go into Master Transmogrifist (CA). With carefully chosen forms, one can be a beast in melee combat.

    You need to be level 10 to meet Sublime Chord's prereqs (requires 13 ranks in a couple of skills), so you'd have to do Bard 10/Sublime Chord 10.

    Silver Key. I like the fact that you cannot keep a silver key out of anywhere.

    Well, you can always do sublime chord 1/spellcasting PrC 5 (or 9), using the latter to expound upon the former. Not too many reasons to take sublime chord 10, after all.

    I like the warforged juggernaut. We played a one-shot once that involved a chase through a shanty town. I just went on a beeline through the houses screaming "OOOOOOOOOHHHHHH YEEEEAAAAAH" until we caught him.

    Not that I've ever played one but the frenzied berserker sounds like a lot of fun. I've also built toward exemplars, occult slayers, and dervishes.
