PFS Nagaji Dragon Disciple


Advice

RPG Superstar 2014 Top 16, RPG Superstar 2013 Top 16

In my (apparently) never-ending quest to figure out how to use my race boon, I'm now considering a brutish nagaji Dragon Disciple. This would be a dumping ground for GM credit, so I won't play it at all until level 5-7. Here's the build I've sketched out:

STR 17 (+1 at 4th)
DEX 14
CON 14
INT 12
WIS 7
CHA 14

Traits:
Armor Expert (for use of Mithral Breastplate)
Gifted Adept

Fighter1: Power Attack, Weapon Focus (Greatsword)
Sorc1: Claws
Sorc2: Spell Focus (Evocation)
Sorc3: +1 Natural Armor, Resist X 5
Sorc4: Arcane Armor Training (I'll just eat the last 5% ASF)
DD1: +1 Natural Armor
DD2: Toughness, Varisian Tattoo (Evocation), +2 STR, Dragon Bite
DD3: Breath Weapon
DD4: +2 STR, +1 Natural Armor

I'm still in the air about whether I want to go with electricity or fire as my dragon element. With low save DCs, electricity might be better with things like Shocking Grasp and Defensive Shock, but fire would be better for groups.

Any ideas/suggestions?

Any plans to pick up Arcane Armor Mastery? You could replace Toughness, since you've got 14 CON.

You may have missed my edit, but I'd be left with only 5% ASF. I think I can deal with that. Also, Toughness is my bloodline feat, so I can't use that for AAM.

Hrm. Well... Are you sure about that 7 WIS? That seems dangerous. The bigger the gap between your STR and your WIS, the more likely you are to kill your party, you know?

But casters have good Will saves, so I think I'll be fine. I could take my CON down to 12, and bump my WIS and CHA both by a point.

That's an idea. Gives you +1 Will and something to do with your 8th level stat bump. You're getting Toughness eventually anyway, and DD's HD are d12's, right?

Have you thought of wielding a naginata (for a Tian theme) or other reach weapon? By using a reach weapon, you can cast a buff spell then use an AoO as the opponent moves to attack you. You'll be a support melee, capable of dealing great DPR while buffing the front lines. Also, many PFS scenarios are close quarters so you can fight from behind your tank.
