Need help with a PFS character


Advice

Dark Archive

Still kinda new but i get the basic mechanics. My character is a half elf rouge and I just hit lvl2 and the GM suggested that i re-roll me character before I play with him again.
So far I made him a UC Rouge but I also plan on Multiclassing into a dragon bloodline Sorcerer(silver).
My stats so far are:
str10
dex15
con12
int12
wis12
cha15
I have the Core,Advanced class,Ultimate Magic, and Unchained books.
The main ideas I have are, a rouge that starts at a distance with magic then sneaks an closes in for sneak or flank attack.
I'm looking for any advice on stat allocation, feats, traits, and starting spells when it gets to that point.

Ps:I really like the idea of using The icicle dagger and blurred movement spells
pss:Also wondering if prestieging into dragon disciple could be beneficial?


How much spell casting do you really plan to do. If you want ranged spell casting and then close consider: Minor and Major magic rogue talents.

Minor magic can get you ray of frost at will.

Major magic could get you either blurred movement, Iccecle dagger, or snowball 1/2 rogue level per day, or since your a half elf using your favored class bonus of elf increase that by 1 per level.

If you want to be a melee sorcerer just build a melee sorcerer.

If you want to combine and be a spell casting rogue. I suggest getting your hands on Pathfinder Player Companion: Dirty Tactics Toolbox, combining rogue and wizard to make an arcane trickster (Out of the core book). the feat Accomplished sneak attacker allow you to enter arcane trickster with only 1 level of Rogue.

The reason I say Wizard instead of Sorcerer is then you have the Intelligence to still do skills.


Here's my suggestion if you want to be a spellcasting rogue -

Pick up 2+ levels of Magus.
Gives you limited spells plus Spell Combat (what I call 'fake' TWF if you can make the concentration check while in combat)

STR 10 DEX 16+2 CON 14 INT 14 WIS 10 CHA 10

Items you want: Pearls of Power I
You'll be using your spells to support your damage. Go to spells are Vanish for sneaking in and getting SA and Shield for defenses.

I do SUGGEST you stay as a unchained rogue till 3rd level as that's when you get your DEX to damage class feature.

I would not go into any prestige classes till you know what you're doing. Most of them are "flavor" classes and downgrades power wise.

This sounds super cool and kinda how i want my CaC to go, but i really like the idea of the dragon skills to also help support damage thats why i went sorcerer. And i also like ice:

Ray of frost, blurred movement, Icicle dagger, vanish seem like good early, spells to rely on. plus the silver dragon boost to cold damage.
so i kinda have an idea on the way i want to go sorta....
still open to ideas kind new still hehe

I'm tying to go with more of an RP aspect but still keep him effective. i like how the rouge plays and like the idea of him discovering he has dragon powers and magic he can use to support his skills.
Someone at one of my tables suggested i take 4lvls in Rouge and 1lvl in Sorcerer the dragon disciple takes over and lvls only the sorcerer

I wouldn't multiclass on your first character. See if Minor and Major magic wont work for what you want. Also the Rogue Arctype counterfeit mage might help some to or if you want to do a more rogue themed Sorcerer the seeker arc type for Sorcerer basically gives you trap finding.

Ultimately its what you want to do. I love the Dragon Disciple in theory I have never been a fan of it in practice.
