I'm not keen on a melee combatant built on the warlock's d6, so fighter has to be the majority of the classes, which means about Warlock-3 for 2d6 plus Practiced Spellcaster for another 2d6 when you can get to it. 

Does Practiced Spellcaster increase your level for purposes of determining how much damage your EB does??

RAW, no. Quite a few DMs allow it, however.
Read, every day, something no one else is reading. Think, every day, something no one else is thinking. Do, every day, something no one else would be silly enough to do. It is bad for the mind to be always part of unanimity.

My understanding is that the creator of the class approves of that use for Practiced Spellcaster, if that helps any argument with the DM.

Yeah.. my DM is a bit hard-headed..  Oh.. guess that's stating the obvious.

Do you happen to know where that was mentioned?

Here you go.  it's the 4th question down.

[spoiler]
If you stop ignoring 289 pages telling what the intent is to stretch "more power" in your own god complexion of your interpretation trumps all to cover ability adjustments from aging then I will ignore a quarter page of rules that exist within a sidebar.
I think in this case the grammar is less important than whether the Str and Dex bonus provided to your created undead scales.

The Eldritch TheUr-Lock by NatchFeral

...

Variant: Warlock 8/Ur-Priest 2/Eldritch Disciple 8/Chameleon 2
 Abilities:
 Invocations as Warlock 16 (1 Dark Invocation)
 Cleric Spells as Ur-Priest 10 (9th level cleric spells)
 Rebuke Undead
 BAB +14

Shouldn't that be Cleric Spells as Ur-Priest 9 (8th level spells; 9th if you have 28+ wisdom); Since ED loses 1 cleric CL at level 1 to make it 2 +7 = 9.  Or am I missing something?

In dragon magazine 353 there is the PrC Thrall of Malcanthet.  It has no spell casting requirements but progresses spell casting 7/10.  Still a little pricy for entry with diplomacy 9, bluff 9, two perform skills 5 and three feats, but a very interesting class.

It grants:
Charm Monster 1/day
Dominate 1/day
Bonus to social checks
Telepathy through sight
3d6 sneak attack
1 hour per day you get all the stat mods (on top of what you already have) of a succubus and most of their powers
+4 unlisted bonus to Cha (in addition to succubus transformation)

Something like Bard 1/Warlock 5/Thrall 10

On a side note, I know this thread is old and it has probably been mentioned but Versatille spellcaster is also a trick to get higher level spells (in addition to sanctum spell and Precocious Apprentice tricks listed).

I'm playing a build similar to the The Eldritch TheUr-Lock; Though I will end up with with some Hellfire Warlock levels and Binder thrown in (Warlock 5 / Binder 1 / Ur-Priest 2 / Eldritch Disciple 9 / Hellfire Warlock 3).  Does the Warlock, Hellfire Warlock, and/or Binder level count towards the Ur-Priest's CL?

To determine the caster level of an ur-priest, add the character’s ur-priest levels to one-half of her levels in other spellcasting classes. (Any levels gained in the cleric class by an ex-cleric don’t count.)

An interesting question to mull over; do warlocks qualify for Vecna-Blooded?
[spoiler]Fighter: "I can kill a guy in one turn."
Cleric: "I can kill a guy in half a turn."
Wizard: "I can kill a guy before my turn."
Bard: "I can get three idiots to kill guys for me."

On a strange note, would anyone be put out if we had a post about people or events we can spare a thought for, or if its within their creed, a prayer for? Just a random thought, but ... hells I wouldn't have known about either Archangels daughter or Saeomons niece if I didn't happen to be on these threads.
Sounds fine to me.
probably over on "Off-topic".
might want to put a little disclaimer in the first post.

This is the Min/Max board. We should be able to figure out a way to optimize the POWER OF PRAYER(TM) that doesn't involve "Pazuzu, Pazuzu, Pazuzu".

Since the warlock counts as an Arcane Spellcasting class (CArc, pg. Iforget...70?) it would follow that its caster level stacks. And since the HFW's levels add actual caster level, then it would too.

This is missing the Voice of Madness least invocation (DragMag332 44). It's not that great but is very funny.

I'm about to start an ECL 15 evil campaign, which will be going to epic levels, and I'm considering a build like the one a couple posts back:

Warlock 4/Binder 1/Ur-Priest 2/Eldritch Disciple 8 (-->ED +1/Hellfire Warlock 3/Mindbender 1)

Hopefully dedicating myself to Zargon will qualify me for both Ur-Priest and ED.

I have a few questions:
1) Is the mindbender dip worth it (for mindsight of course), or should I just grab another level of warlock?
2) If the mindbender dip is worth it, should it go at level 5 and push binder back to level 17 (since I don't need Naberius until I get HW)?
3) It seems like bloodline levels are to be just a straight level adjustment, with no buyoff.  Would it be worth it to delay my progression enough to get a bloodline for amping HW?  Note that I'll be able to perform the DCFS on myself to swap crappy bloodline feats for good feats.
4) Where do I go with this in epic levels??  Nar demonbinder and eldritch theurge?

EDIT: Also, I was thinking 8/10/14/10/18/14 for 32pb.  Thoughts?
