I have a magus, and I am planning to advance the character to 10 level, to get access to weapon specializatoiin, and then switch over to Arcane Archer, to add some range options for the character.
Do you think this would be a good build, or should i just continue as a Magus?
How would a 20 level magus compare to a 10 level magus/ 10 level arcane archer?
Magus is really a bad class to prestige out of, and given that you don't gain a ton of bonus feats and you don't have any synergy between the first 10 levels of your class and ranged combat I would say it would compare very poorly to a straight magus.
The character is a PFS character.
I began the character a good six months before the Ultimate magic came out, when the playtest materiel came out. So I cant use any archtypes for the character.
I am really looking to have fun with the character.
I guess now the Magus i have is good at close combat....I was thinking of making a "switch hitter" and I thought adding some ranged "archery" would be a nice addition. I don't think the abilities overlap, but i think they may compliment each other, the magus providing close combat and the Arcane Archer providing ranged capabilites.
I guess i have made the character as a "quitesential elf". I thought blending sword play and spells to be a very "elvish" thing, as well as archery being very "elvish>"
Anyways thanks for your posts...if you have any other ideas please let me know.
