Pro & ContraEdit

Pro

  • very high Evocation Spell DC ( Spellcasting Prodigy adds another +1 DC)
  • it is possible to maximize the DC of the evocation spells by dropping 1 level of rogue and sacrificing wizard caster levels instead of RW caster levels. (Every 3 epic levels gives +1 to the DC of your spells including the ones above the level cap at 32, 35 and 38)
  • The Red Sock ignores Spell Resistance (SR) for Specialized School of Magic (here: Evocation) (Character Level 30 +5 bonus RWoT +6 Epic Spell Penetration +4 from Practiced Spellcaster, your Caster Roll agains Spell Resistance is 45). If you cast Assay Resistance you get an addtional +10 and a Greater Breach lowers the Targets SR by 5 and a Lesser Breach lowers the Targets SR by 3. So basically you can crack a Spell Resistance of 63!
  • INT 30 means you can cast more Spells then any other wizard. Spellcasting Prodigy adds even more spells for you to cast and you are treated as having INT 32! Get an +8 Intelligence Ring or a similar Item and you get an effective Intelligence of 40! (Even more Spells!)
  • INT 30 & Able Learner means you get 293 Skill Points. The only problem is that you can't max some of them, because you don't have Rogue or something similar to be able to spend 33 points in most skills, only 16 points.
  • can summon a familiar Beetle for an extra 30 HP

Con

  • low BAB
  • low AC
  • low HP
  • can't max most skills
  • no Epic Spells (once/per Day Spells are not that great in a prolonged battle) (Epic Spell Penetration could be replaced with any one Epic Spell, but with your casterlevel and boni from Red Wizard, they are hardly necassary.)
