Sorcerer (help me build it)
« on: November 28, 2010, 07:20:09 PM »
Hi,
before starting i want to exscuse me for all the syntax error that i'm going to write cause i'm not English!
Let's go!

Next week i''m going to start a new campaing and the master told us that e can only use the base handbook and all the complete series and races of the stone(the master doesn't let us owerpower our charachter lol)
The setting is General( no eberon or fireaun). we will start at level 2.
i want to focus my sorcerer on blasting( i know that the battleground controll or the buffer/debuffer are better but i like throwing spell and kill someone with one shot!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I selected the human because in the few handbook that we can use i think that is the best for sorcerer (no malus 1 feat 1 skill point) usually i do the D.W. kobold sorcere but the master doesn't want to use it. If there is a better races please tell me wich is and where i can find it.

At first level i select the draconic heritage(I know that is in the races of the dragon but you can also find it in the complete arcane)
and draconic power (with the human bonus feat)
now my problem is choose a good PrC. can you give me an advise?
Also can you link me a list of powerfull arcane spell?
tank you for all the answers

A friend of mine once played a blasting sorceress with great success. Sure, battlefield control is better than blasting, but after all death is the ultimate debuff, and the ability to pound 1000+ damage straight into the face of your enemy tends to help you achieve exactly that.

First, your DM has severely limited your book selection. Im not going to dig too far into what you are missing, but lets just say that you would have wanted the War Mage prestige class, the Dalamars Lightning Lance spell and the Reserves of Strength feat from the dragonlance books. Moving on.

Second, realize that metamagic is your friend. Get either the Rapid Metamagic ACF from PHB2 instead of your ability to summon a familiar, or get the Rapid Metamagic feat from Complete Something (Mage or Arcane) ASAP. Then proceed to get Metamagic Feats such as Empower Spell, Quicken Spell, Arcane Thesis (Scorching Ray), Metamagic School Focus (Evocation), Energy Substitution (Cold), Energy Admixture, and Chain Spell. The idea is, of course, that you use the 2nd level spell Scorching Ray as your primary blasting tool, and use metamagic cost reducers to pile on more and more metamagic effects that will your damage output. As Scorching Ray is a fire spell, you will often encounter creatures immune to it in its basic form, but that is what you have Energy Substitution (Cold) for, as most creatures that is immune to fire damage are fire subtypes, who will take double damage from cold damage.

The most significant advantage of using Sorrching Ray as your only blasting tool, is that you don't have to take blasting spells of higher levels, and instead have the option of taking more battlefield control, utility and buff/debuff to help you be a better rounded caster. After all, the most important aspect in playing a blaster is to be able to do everything else too, which is why warmages fail so bad.

Spellwarp Sniper from complete scoundrel would be a nifty blasting prestige class.  But you lose a caster level (since you have to take a level of rogue) which essentially means you'd have to play a wizard (a wizard missing one caster level gets new spells like a sorcerer)

i know infact there is a lot of good PrC and feat or just races but the master don't want to take it

Might as well go for Argent Savant (Complete Arcane) and learn force spells like Magic Missile, Mage Armor, Shield, Orb of Force, Resilient Sphere, Grasping Hand (all but the last version are good), Wall of Force, etc.
