Contingency: Time Stop
« on: June 08, 2009, 03:04:24 PM »
I've heard a ton about the two being used together, but never quite figured out how. Contingency only lets you pair it with spells of 6th level. Is there a prestige class/magic item Im missing that lets you put a 9th level spell in there?

Craft Contingent Spell allows for 9th level spells. CArc

Alternatively, you use Contingency for a Celerity spell (PH2), then cast Time Stop using the standard action granted to you.

Yeah. Psions get temporal acceleration (a 6th level power similar to time stop), meaning they can use the psionic version of contingency.

Of course, it's one of the stronger power combinations, but they need something nice at SOME point...right?

I dare anyone to find a hole in that logic.

Lol Im sure Psions really need something more than what they already have. It's not like their class qualifies for Thrallherd or anything =P

Thrallherd < Incantatrix

Incantatrix < Planar Shepherd  :D

At least in the time stop department (although they are not ACTUALLY using time stop)

My brother was playing a venerable dragonwrought kobold Incantatrix in my friends' weekly game, wherein the DM is oblivious to min/maxing and not entirely versed in power balance (we usually blow through his encounters until he hits us with something truly nasty). Suffice it to say, he banned Incantatrix after 3 game sessions. He was definitely planning on working his way toward Time Stop shenanigans. Of course, my brother only built the character out of spite because the DM wouldn't let him play a Dread Necromancer, thinking it was 'overpowered', but when my brother suggested playing a straight-out Wizard, the DM said OK.  :lmao

Oh boy. I bet he thinks that "Core" is also the most balanced and fair system, and that splatbooks just makes the game unfair. Mmhmmm....
OOC-well for that matter he could just ride on my sword, that's about 15' ;)
OOC - That's what SHE said!  But, otherwise, that works for me, if you guys are willing.
