Title: Selective Spell Ideas
Post by: Iskajir on February 14, 2011, 08:03:28 PM
My build: Transmuter 5/War Weaver 5/Spellguard of Silverymoon5/Abjurant Champion 5: essentially a low-cheese, party-friendly version of Valdrex's Ultimate Warweaver.

The DM ruling: Selective Spell (Su) PGtF p76 was clearly meant to be used with spells like fireball. I asked how it would work with Solid Fog, for example. Per DM, "unaffected" characters have not ill effects at all, including  vision, movement, etc.; the fog would be a faint shadowy effect, noticeable, but unimpairing.

The question: What are the best spells to make use of this? Party is 3 meleers, 1 archer, caster cleric, and myself.

Anti-Magic Field comes to mind. End to Strife is another, and also Maw of Chaos, Suppressing Field...

AMF makes me happy.  And Maw of Chaos just got better. If I were a blaster-type, I could now live happily-ever-after. I may have to give a pass to End to Strife. It's both a banned school, and not easily acquired for a wizard spell list.

Thanks! That definitely helps me ponder the directions I might take.
