  • At FS 1, 3, and 12, this gains Weapon proficiency, focus and specialization, with his Deity's favored weapon. This being a Stormlord build, you will want to choose a Deity with Spear as his Favored Weapon. That means either Talos, Lurue or Hoar.
  • Extend and Persistent Spell are needed for your Favored Soul buffs.
  • EDM adds +10 damage per hit
  • Get +8 Cha equipment to boost EDM to +18 damage per attacks, and another +4 to all saves.
  • With Monkey Grip, you can hold a spear in one hand, and a shield in the other. The +2 Strength bonus from wielding a spear 2 handed (+4 if using epic gear) is not worth the loss of 7 AC from a shield.
  • This also gains 2 elemental DR at FS 5, 10. Because of your Stormlord powers, you DO NOT want to pick electrical resistance as one of these, as you already get Electrical immunity from Stormlord. If you can lay your hands on a Ring of power (which protects from Fire and Cold), then you would want to pick Sonic and Acid as your energy resistances.

Skills:Edit

  • This only has 3 skill points per level.
  • Unfortunately, as Stat points for Str and Cha are very tight, you can only increase Int, and number of skill points by sacrificing either Con or Dex.
  • The must-have skills are Concentration and Spellcraft. The Good Variant can max out 1 more favored Soul Class Skill of his choice. (Diplomacy for Modules and Campaigns, Craft or Lore or Heal for PWs)
  • If you are using the evil variant, you must invest 5 points in Hide cross-class to unlock Blackguard. You can still spend the remaining 28 points in a class skill of your choice. Remember to buy Hide skill points only after you have bought Able Learner (second level and beyond).

Levelling Notes

  • If using Paladin, the main constraint is trying to keep Fighter and Paladin within 1 level of each other to prevent multiclass penalty. However, you can take Paladin levels earlier, as opposed to the scheme above, where you wait for the Blackguard prerequisites, Power Attack and Cleave.
  • If taking Blackguard, note that you qualify for Divine Might by Blackguard 3. If you want Divine might earlier, you can swap Blackguard 3 on level 11, with Stormlord 1 on level 12, then grab Divine Might at level 12. Then swap Blackguard 4 on level 15 with Stormlord 2 on level 16, and grab Extend Spell on level 15.
