    Default Sand Shaper build (3.5)

    Ok, after reading the Prc rating thread I decided on a build, hopefully it actually will be good.

    Race: Painted Elf + Magic Blooded Template

    Sorcerer 5/Sand Shaper 10/Earth Dreamer 5 (Not necessarily in that order.)

    Feats: Earth Sense, Heighten Spell, Draconic Heritage (Brass), Earth Spell, Touchstone: City of the Dead, Dragon Familiar, Practiced Caster, ?, ? (Assumed that there are 2 flaws taken)

    The feat Draconic Heritage is merely fluff and can be removed.

    Any suggestions of feats, level order, spells?

    Thanks in advance.

    Are you taking the full Sand Shaper levels for a reason? If all you're after is the bonus spells known, I think you should only need one level in the class for Desert Magic. That way, you also don't give up a lot of spellcasting levels (which is the problem at later levels of the class, and why a lot of people don't take the full ten levels).

    The capstone of Sandshaper is kinda cool, so I can't blame someone for taking it. Is it optimal? No. Is it neat? Yes.

    Sandstorm.

    It's a cool PrC, though their namesake ability, Shape Sand, is rather lackluster. It takes too long and doesn't last long enough for most benefits. The strength of the PrC is the huge list of spells it dumps on spontaneous casters' spells known, though some free metamagic isn't bad either.

    IIRC there's some way to use Shape Sand in a negative amount of time so that walls appear before you want them.

    Painted Elf is also in Sandstorm and Magic Blooded is in a Dragon Magazine, just check Magic blooded template in google and you should find out which one.

    EDIT: Dragon 306 pg 64

    I'd actually go with a Desert Kobold (Dragonwrought optional) if you can use the Web Enhancement, which allows you to take Sand Shaper to completion and only lose 1 level of spellcasting.
