-26 BAB, allowing 6 attacks per round one hand
-perfect two weapon fighting, allowing 12 attacks per round un-buffed

Why these classes/races?


Air Genasi

  • The Air Genasi gets DEX+2, INT+2 bonuses, INT is required for damage, AC, and spell casting, while DEX is required for AC and AB. A high INT and DEX is essential for this build to get level 9 spells and perfect two weapon fighting
  • WIS-2, CHA-2: The WIS-2 lowers will save, but Mind Blank spell can counter this weakness. Charisma penalty hurts dialog options but can be countered by skills and greater heroism spell.

Alternatives: tiefling or drow. With slight leveling progression change, tiefling can be used with no XP penalties. Drow can also be used with the progression listed below, but must start with a constitution value of 12.


Wizard:

  • Level 8 so that when combined with 10 levels of Eldritch knight, 17 caster wizard casting level is achieved, thus allowing level 9 spells. With Practiced Spellcaster, 21 caster level is achieved.


Fighter:

Eldritch knight:

  • level 10 for full BAB and caster level progression

Invisible Blade


NotesEdit

  • While he has superb defense with spells, without good Kukri his damage output is not as impressive.
  • The Eldritch blade is vulnerable to dispel from high level casters.
  • For familiar, pick the Beetle for the extra hp.


Without any magic items the character looks like this:


AC: 26
Main Hand Attack Bonus: +34/+29/+24/+19/+14/+9
Damage: 1-4 +6
Off Hand Attack Bonus: +34/+29/+24/+19/+14/+9
Damage: 1-4 +4


For a total of 12 attacks, with persistent haste, a total of 14 attacks.

If you equip +8 DEX/INT gear and wield two Kukri+8, you get:

AC: 31
Main Hand Attack Bonus: +46/+41/+36/+31/+26/+21
Damage: 1-4 +10 +8
Off Hand Attack Bonus: +46/+41/+36/+31/+26/+21
Damage: 1-4 +6 +8


If you also add elemental damage to both Kukri(max 3 * 5d6)

Main Hand Damage: 7 * (2.5 + 10 + 8 + 3 * 5 * 3.5)
Off Hand Damage : 7 * (2.5 + 6 + 8 + 3 * 5 * 3.5)
=
Main Hand Damage: 511
Off Hand Damage : 483
= 994 average damage per round

All of the above is factored in before calculating buffs.

Assuming the following buffs and equipment:

  • +8 AC robe
  • +5 AC deflection cloak or ring
  • +4 AC boots
  • +8 INT/DEX/CON items
  • +8 weapons

the Eldritch blade will have the following stats:

  • 58 AC
  • 51 AB
  • 30/Adamantine for 210 damage
  • 20/Adamantine
  • 50% displacement
  • +10 to all saves
  • Immunity to instant death, necromancy, and all spells level 2 or lower.

The AB can further increased to 58 for one round by casting true strike

Skills

Due to his high int, he will have plenty of skills. He can achieve:

  • 30 points in tumble
  • 30 points in concentration
  • 30 points in spellcraft
  • 33 points in bluff

and still has plenty to spare for other skills. UMD is recommended, even though it is a cross class skill.

Character ProgressionEdit

Note: The Skills mentioned in the Progression Table are only those skills that are required as pre-reqs. The rest of the skills can be spend as one likes. Spellcraft, concentration, bluff, tumble, and UMD should be maxed out.

  • Note, save 5 skill points before taking Invisible Blade class so that you can spend it on tumble and bluff.

Skill abbreviations: B = Bluff
