So I settled on the build above but changed the points around a bit for 14 Wis and 13 Cha. I'm now level 2 with the archetype Divine Commander. I get no blessings but I do get a mount. I have a wolf with the Bodyguard archetype.
The problem I'm running into is that throughout level 1 I have only 2 spells, cruddy attack bonuses and weak feats. I was barely able to make a 1/4 contribution to combat (be able to hit 50% of the time and deal 4 damage on an average hit). Basically I've devolved into the healbot.
How can I straddle the dual roles of staying competitive with ranged attacks (be able to hit at least half the time and deal 1/4 of the damage of the average to the average monsters of my level) while ALSO being somewhat useful with my meager spells.
I now have Fervor but I confess I'm completely at a loss of how to use it.
