Description Edit

The Storm Fury is a Strongheart halfling version of the Holy Fury - Clr(17),M(11),F(2). It is essentially the same character and plays exactly the same, however the Storm Fury is, I believe, a slightly stronger character. There are a few tradeoffs, however, which are detailed below.

As mentioned in the description, this build is based off the Holy Fury - Clr(17),M(11),F(2). This character originated out of the desire to obtain Perfect Two-Weapon Fighting right at level 21, which required a race with a +2 bonus to DEX. To avoid the Multiclass penalty for XP, the only way to access level 9 Cleric spells was to use a Prestige class - in this case: Stormlord. As this class has several feat requirements, the only DEX race that made sense was Strongheart halfling due to their bonus feat. The Holy Fury page does a great job of breaking down all the pros and cons of the character, so see that page for a more detailed analysis. Here is a comparaison between the Storm Fury and a modified Holy Fury (two levels of Divine Champion instead of Fighter, with Weapon Focus: Kama replacing Able Learner at lvl 6):


Storm Fury Holy Fury
Perfect Two-Weapon Fighting at 21 vs. 25 Level 9 Spells at 18 vs. 24
+2 DEX, +2 INT: +1 AB, +1 AC, +Reflex save, +Tumble skill, +Spellcraft skill +2 WIS: +1 AC, +Will save, +1 3rd & 7th level spell
Small stature: +1 AB, +1 AC Weapon Focus: Kama: +1 AB
Fearless: +2 Saves vs. Fear Luck of Heroes: +1 AC, +1 All Saves
Great Fortitude: +2 Fortitude Saves Sacred defense: +1 All Saves
Toughness: +30 HP Epic Prowess: +1 AB
Electricity Immunity Uncanny Dodge
Effective Cleric Level 19 vs. 17 Extra Spells: 5th, 7th, 8th, 9th & 9th, plus increased duration +1 Base Attack Bonus
Stormlord-enhanced Shuriken attacks .


Once everything has been simplified - identical bonuses eliminated - the comparison is much easier:


Storm Fury Holy Fury
Perfect Two-Weapon Fighting at 21 vs. 25 Level 9 Spells at 18 vs. 24
100% Electricity Immunity Uncanny Dodge
Extra Spells: 5th, 8th, 9th, 9th Extra Spells: 3rd
Increased Spell Duration: 2 levels +1 BAB
+30 Hit Points +3 Will Saves (+1 Vs. Fear)
+1 Tumble +1 Reflex Save
+1 Spellcraft .
Stormlord-enhanced Shuriken attacks .


Notes Edit

  • The Storm Fury requires a +5 Wisdom item to cast level 9 spells.
  • This build, as with most Kama builds, relies heavily on enchanted elemental damage on the Kamas. As soon as you hit level 10, craft and enchant two Kamas with 1d6 elemental damage (x2) each (add a +5 enchantment at level 15). I would recommend using Cold Steel or Alchemical Silver as those materials don't count toward the enchantment limit of 3, yet still provide minor bonuses.
  • Stormlord abilities, with the exception of Electrical Immunity and Cleric Spell progression, will only work with the Shuriken. Luckily, this is a Monk weapon that will function with Flurry of Blows if you choose to attack from a distance. You will also benefit from Halfling's Good Aim.
  • Though this build has 1 less BAB than the Holy Fury, the number of attacks is not affected
  • You may take 10 levels of Stormlord - replacing one Cleric level - if you don't mind the XP penalty on the last level. You will get Extended Storm Avatar for your trouble.
