    Default Illumian Warblade Sigil Help <3.5>

    Reading RoD, Illumains seem to be a better human.

    My question is what sigil combo is good for Warblade?

    Reason behind question: Planning on running a Quorbred Illumian Warblade who is headed to a PrC that would open a can of butt-kick with Diamond Mind

    I think Aeshuur is the only "word" that doesn't have to do with casting or turn undead uses. So, probably that one.

    Kick butt with Diamond Mind?

    Yea, Aeshurr would probably be best if you have to be Illumian. Really, Illumians are best for multiclass casters like gishes or Ultimate Magi.

    That PrC would be great, minus Quorbred's no psionics rule.

    Sooo... Aeshurr is best.

    And Gishes are a lie, and Ultimate Magi are uneeded in my group, which has a Frost Mage, a Cloistered Cleric, an Assassin, and myself. I'm the designated Beatstick.

    And on top of Quorbred, would Dragonborn benefit me in my warrior path?

    Plan to pick up Umbral Blade levels (yeah, it sucks, but Hell's Bells, its an Illumian-exclusive PrC) and finishing out with Dragonslayer or Kensai

    Why Quorbred? What does it really give you? Also, why Illumian? I mean, Urr is good for +2 on Conc checks, but...yea...

    Gish > non-gish melee.

    Ultimate Magus is a Wizard build plus versatility plus trapmonkey/skillmonkey. I just happened to explain it once today already.

    Dragonborn would make you lose every single racial ability you already have, apart from movement modes, size, and ability score adjustments. No more runeword, but maybe if you get the breath weapon from it with Entangling Exhalation it could be useful.

    You may as well finish out the build with more Warblade levels to get more/better maneuvers and stances.

    Here's the Logic:

    Why Quorbred- My DM tends to favor psionic foes, not limited to Psivamps, Psiliches, and Brains in Jars. Quorbred gives some good stat bonuses, some immunities vs psionics, but you cannot use psionics yourself.

    Why Illumian- Thematics mostly. Plus, I want to tie Warblade and Umbral Blade together and see what evil creation spawns forth...

    Why Warblade- Ive ran one before, but not one hell-bent on knowledge and the mind...
