I'm brainstorming ideas for my next Core PFS character, and I'm looking to blend arcane power with martial prowess. I played around with Eldritch Knight concepts, and I think this is my favorite so far, but I'm looking for suggestions to take it to the next level.
Human Barbarian/Wizard (transmuter)/Eldritch Knight
Traits: Magical Knack, Reactionary
Arcane Bond (amulet)
Barb1: Toughness, Extra Rage
Wiz1: Spell Focus (???)
W2: Arcane Strike
W3: +1 Int
W4: Improved Initiative
W5: Heighten Spell
EK1: Weapon Focus (claw), Power Attack
EK2: +1 Str
EK3: Weapon Specialization (claw)
EK5: Dodge, Lightning Reflexes
Starting at level 4, he can use alter self to turn into a troglodyte with 3 natural attacks, and eventually turn into big animals with beast shape.
The transmuter stat bonus goes into Strength until I get a +2 belt, at which point it goes into Con for survivability. Plus, with an amulet of mighty fists as my arcane bond, I can probably get it up to a +4 by retirement.
I'm still a little iffy on the feat selections; not sure whether Weapon Focus/Specialization is worth it since they'll only apply to some of my natural attacks. Any suggestions?
