Daniel is a half-orc trip monkey power attacking Sacred Servant pally in the Council of Theives AP.
We are about to start book 6.
So far he is TOTALLY awesome as a Masochist Pally. (Via Swift LOH and Fey Foundling) he takes it to the face like a champ and does fairly decent damage.
When he is not smiting though he usually TRIPS to make it safer for his Knifemaster Rogue buddy to flank with him and grant each AOO's.
But there have been a couple of outside fights in this (very urban) campaign against flying opponents that have nearly TPK'd the party.
I wanna pwn flying opponents via my SUMMON CELESTIAL ALLY power.
Now at level 12 this lets me summon planar ally 1/week with no negotiations or cost anything up to 12HD.
I have kept my ride ranks up and want to make a decent Mounted Warrior
(though given the AP so far it will be a secondary function)
Gearwise I think buying
+2 Mithral Equestrian Fullplate $19,650
Plus buy Equestrian Belt $3,200
Obviously a lance.
I won't say what it is but we found a hoard so WBL money is not a problem.
That will make me a badass rider for a summoned Half Celestial Dragon Horse or Coutal. My planar request will be 'serve me as a mount for 1 week.'
That is for OUTSIDE FIGHTS.
for inside fights I'll just summon a Movanic Deva.
*Special Consideration. My weapon Master Domain Power lets me swift action learn any combat feat I qualify for 9 rounds per day.
