PF: looking for some advice on a couple builds
« on: November 21, 2018, 09:08:07 PM »
Ok, so I'm currently playing in 2 seperate Pathfinder campaigns, and I'm trying to figure out how to keep my 2 characters up to par with the rest of the party as we advance into higher levels. In one campaign we just hit lv4 this week, and in the other we just hit Lv5 last week. My 2 characters are a Catfolk Eldritch Scoundrel Rogue (Lv4) and a Halfling Unlettered Arcanist (Lv5).

The Rogue uses her Natural Weapons (claws) for combat, and her spells are focused towards utilities. She's also got the Multiclass Variant Wizard progression (minus 3rd Level Familiar, DM permitted skipping the Familiar to keep 3rd level Feat), with the Aether Elemental Arcane School, Water opposition. What I'm looking for is some options to improve her Natural Weapons and Sneak Attack, without sacrificing her spell casting in the process.

The Arcanist is heavily focused on Enchantment and Divination spells themed around "Luck". She's even got herself access to the Destined Bloodline, and will be picking up the Luck-Fate Domain, and Divination-Foresight Arcane School in a couple of levels. What I'm looking for here, is some options for her in later levels when Enchantments start to drop off in usefulness due to Immunities. I'd like to keep her theme of a "Luck Caster" running though.

Won't have wealth for it for many more levels, but Deliquescent Gloves are Acidic property on claws for 8000 that stacks with a AoMF without making it cost more. Ring of Rat Fangs gives you a bite attack cheap, which stacks another attack that benifits from all your specialization into natural attacks.
