DescriptionEdit

Sorcerer 6 / Paladin 4 / Eldritch Knight 10 / Arcane Scholar of Candlekeep 10

This is one of the most common and basic power builds out there. It is primarily a Sorcerer with near full caster level (29), and reasonable BAB 22 (with a 5th attack) for melee. Later on, the full autostill feat series lets it cast Sorcerer spells in heavy armor and shield, and lets it cast Stone Body/Iron Body on itself for a large bunch of immunities, including stunning, blindness, electrical damage and critical hits. It can hit better than an Iron Sorcerer or Obsidian Sorcerer, but sacrifices some defenses in the process (approximately +7/6 BAB at the cost of -7/4 AC compared to the Iron and Obsidian Sorcerers respectively). It gains +1 DC but, -1 Caster level.

This uses martial weapon proficiency from Paladin to qualify for Eldritch Knight, and in turn, Skill focus Concentration from Eldritch Knight to qualify for Arcane Scholar. This feat saving combination means that, unlike some of my other builds, you cannot substitute Paladin for Blackguard.

Notes:

  • This only has 3 skill points per level. The 2 must have skills are Concentration and Spellcraft. This leaves you 1 skill of your choice. You can pick a Convo skill for campaigns, or Heal for PWs.
  • If you feel you need more skill points, you can lower Dex by 2 to 12, and put 2 more points to Int to 14. However, this does not have very useful class skills to put those skill points in.

OverviewEdit

Feats

Character Feats

1. Spellcasting Prodigy

3. Able Learner

6. Power Attack

9. Divine Shield (must take on Paladin 4)

12. Practiced Spellcaster: Sorcerer

15. Empower Spell

18. Skill Focus: Spellcraft


21. Great Charisma

23. Still Spell

25. Automatic: Still Spell: 0-3

27. Automatic: Still Spell: 4-6

29. Automatic: Still Spell: 7-9


Notes:

  • Divine Shield is good for staying alive while you flush out your spells, and is almost a requirement for squishy Sorcerers.
  • Note that in the NWN2 OC, there are 0 ASF Eldritch knight chain shirt (from Deekin), and 0 ASF mithril heavy shield available. If you want, you can use those rather than the still spell and 3x Autostill feats. You can instead take more Great Cha feats, to boost Spells per day, Spell DC, saving throw bonus and Divine shield. You may also take an Epic Spell or 2 with these spare feats.


Character ProgressionEdit

There are 2 possible build progressions you can assume with the EPoCK. The first emphasizes the Warrior aspect first and the Caster Aspect later, while the other does it the other way round.
