Halfling Cavalier


Advice


Your mission is to make the best mounted lance welding halfling cavalier . Mount must be a good flanking buddy in non mounted combat. I'm looking for a full write up with 25 point build , feats for him and mounts up to lvl 11 . Also want how you would fight and why took the skills and feats you did.

This is just for fun , I want to see what people come with.

Spirited Charge monkeys never dismount if they can help it -- dismounting mean you're +2 to attack and -70% damage.

Especially since being small and mounted (on something agile) lets you still go pretty much anywhere that a medium-sized person can. None of this dismounting to fit through the Temple Doors...

So yay for Boars, Wolves and Cats! ;)

Yes I know you wanted to be mounted as much as you can. But for that 5% of fights its nice to have mount that is a good flank buddy.

Still looking for a few good write ups :-)

0_o ... unless you're adventuring to the Goblin Temple of Low-Hanging Ceilings, if you can get your mount into the combat at all, why aren't you riding it?

Using your mount as a flank-buddy = If I was a slightly intelligent opponent with Power Attack, the first thing I'd do is one-shot your mount, then watch you cry like a little girl sucking -1s for a month.

-- If you're not riding it, your animal is not being protected by Mounted Combat. If it's flanking a foe, it's also more than 5' from you, meaning all shared buffs immediately cease.

Lol really I get it ... but one shooting your mount is not likely and if did happen on a lucky crit. Then its better your mount then the party's rogue,monk,bard,cleric or magic user type.

Order of Sword, Boar Mount; add mount's strength to your damage when charging through mounted mastery. Epic win.


Two Halflings cavaliers in the party with Outrider racial trait and the Teamwork feat Outflank. Order of the Dragon. At 4th level having a Cheetah mount.
Which for me poses a question. How can two characters on mounts with mounted combat and ride by attack gain combat advantage on a foe. Is it reasonable to suggest that if the two teammates are on opposite sides of the enemy and are within charging range and declare to hold action so they would go on the same initiative may be allowed combat advantage over the target? This is of course accepting the theory that as both riders reach melee range with the opponent he would be considered flanked.

Our GM is using basically the Core Rules and Advanced Players Guide. But I would be curious to know what you have in mind.
