What class can complement this group?


Skull & Shackles


Arrrrg mates! What class you think can complement this group best? We have:

Changeling(Sea hag)- Witch(Sea)
Samsaran - Magus(Hexer)
Aasimar - Lore Oracle(Seeker)
Nagaji - Summoner

I have played with the idea of an Vishkanya Alchemist, but not sold on the idea yet. What do you think?

They could use more meat to protect them, have you considered a Sea Reaver?


Or a Ranger? I have a ranger in my S&S group and his favored enemy (human) bonus has been a literal life saver for them in the early fights.


Thanks for your responses, after a lot of pondering I have 2 finalists:

Dwarf - Barbarian(Sea Reeaver)
Tengu - Ranger

Altough I getting more inclined for the dwarf because I feel that our group needs more a tank than anything else...


I would ask the summoner's player how s/he intends to use the eidolon. That piece of information may give you the final push in terms of deciding what role needs more support. An eidolon will never be a real tank, lagging behind in hitpoints compared to a barbar or even a fighter, but with a few spells its AC can get rather silly.


The summoner told me he wants to create a Leviathan from the FF type creature, athough he cannot give it the Tsunami spell maybe he can add lightning bolt. Now that I know that I'm thinking I should take the tank role in the group, so I believe Sea Reaver will be a best fit. One thing that I have thought I might change is changing is species, how about a Catfolk Sea Reaver?
