I have built an elven lore warden as follows for a level one pf society game. At first glance it looks great. I have heard/read various remarks about the lore warden but I really like the build at face value. Does anyone have experience running this archetype at higher levels? Any suggestions to make it batter?

The Field Guide Lore Warden has been replaced by the one from the Adventurer's Guide (see blog).

So, make sure the build you want works with the new version (or see the blog for the changed bits)

Part of what makes the project weaker is the catastrophic constitution. Even with an elf nobody should get below 12, mostly for survivability purposes.

This is the pfs version ie new version

I tend to agree with Philippe. You will be in melee. You need hp. CON 10 is not a good plan.

If you're going to have low CON and be in melee, you need to mitigate your low hp. You can do this by having an untouchable armour class (at least your level +20), or things like damage reduction and mirror image/displacement type spells. Lore Warden doesn't give you those things.

If you concentrate of getting your armour class up, you can eventually get pretty high. But you're starting out with only light armour proficiency. The armour expert trait plus mithril breastplate is a good plan, and at higher levels celestial armour is very good. But you've got to survive first, and low CON is a big risk. 10 is low for a melee fighter.

On the other hand, you're an elf. Maybe you can be an archer, in which case you can manage with a bit less hp. I still wouldn't start with a CON as low as 10 though.
