Quote:Lastly, i've been eyeing the Tortured Crusader for a possible build, and having Shizuru as his patron deity for Katana proficiency.OK, so you're dipping cleric (BAB-1) after electing to be a halfling (STR-2 behind a non-small race strength build). That's -3, adjusted to -2 (small race +1 to hit) so far, and hold that thought.
And why am i dipping into Cleric for a Paladin build?
The Vambraces cost 8,000. A belt of Dex is 4. At 6th level, i'd have other priorities than some armbands.
Lastly- i don't care for "PFS Rules of Optimization." I understand building to the races strengths, but that doesn't exclude going counter.
Why can't i play a str-based Halfling Paladin, or a Ratfolk Barbarian?
Making dex builds takes a lot of working the system and time to come on line.
Everyone is too focused on a dex build. why not explore other options?
