Nature fang druid of Erastil


Advice


This is my druid mounted archer flying ofc.

We use some house rules. Free point-blank shot, deadly aim and if you get a feat from a class that you already have you can retrain that feat for free.

1. Medium , Precise Shot, Ancestral Weapon (Darkwood (house rule)), (+1 trait from campaign don't know where I will play this one yet), Might take a drawback and a 3rd trait as well.
2. Druid
3. Druid Spirit Focus
4. Druid
5. Druid Deific Obedience (Erastil), Ranger Combat style (Rapid Shot)
6. Evangelist
7. Evangelist Mounted Combat
8. Evangelist Ranger Combat style (Improved Precise Shot)
9. Evangelist Mounted Archery
10. Evangelist Rogue Talent-Combat trick (Clustered Shot)
11. Evangelist Weapon Focus
12. Evangelist Ranger Combat style (Precise Shot), Gain free retrain -> Indomitable Mount
13. Evangelist Manyshot
14. Evangelist Advanced rogue talent-feat or Trapfinding
15. Evangelist Feat
16. Evangelist Advanced rogue talent-feat or Trapfinding
17. Evangelist Feat
18. Evangelist Evasion
19. Evangelist Feat
20. Evangelist Assassinate
So I have a few feats left to pick and i might have missed some good ones. Same with slayer talents. So if you know any good once tell me.
Are there any other good level 1 dips for bow proficiency and other fun stuff.

The animal companion
A Roc so I can fly on it. The character is a small size Plumekith Aasimar.
Feats
1st Skill Focus (Fly), 2nd Iron Will, 3rd Stable Gallop, 4th Wingover,

the dc to hover is 15 so I don't think i will need that feat. Could take it at low level and pick a new companion on higer level without it.
I don't know what to pick after thees. also, do you recommend any archetypes?

I found Pheromone Arrows that sounds great. but need sent for them to work. So spells or other wheys to get it would be good. Any ideas?


We use both the normal magic system and Spheres of power.
So with medium, I can pick up 2 or more (with sphere drawbacks.) Sphere talents

I'm going to use normal 9 level casting for the druid levels.


just found Celestial Servant. Will pick that at level 11 and move down weapon focus and every feat below it.

Will also pick up hover at level one and skill-focused fly at a later level for the animal companion.

1 person marked this as a favorite.

What level are you starting at?
- There are only 10 levels of Evangelist, though I guess it's basically the same.

- martial focused > burrowing shot is a good combo that helps

- I would move manyshot way up

- Mounted archery is typically not needed.

- There maybe a new feat that allows you to choose between Evangelist, sentinel, and exalted boons. Diverse obedience.


I forgot about evangelist only being 10 levels. It's druid after evangelist.

There is a new feat that lets you do that. But evangelist of Erastil gets the best stuff. gain an exact copy of your animal companion and wis to hit and Ac when close to people.

Burrowing Shot sounds interesting. If I don't take mounted archery i will have an extra feat. Are all the mounted feats a good idea like. Indomitable Mount and mounted combat. they might be nice to have but they might not be that useful when flying.

I could pick up Angelic Blood and Angel Wings instead. Then later evolved companion to give the roc 2 wing attacks as well. Then i could fly on my own and let my animal companion fight.

move manyshot way up like move it up in higher levels. or higher up in the table and move it to a lower level?

It looks like the cheapest options to get scent from an item are rhinarium paste or a headband of the wolf. If you'd rather go with a spell, your best bet is probably fey form I, to turn into a mite or something. Of course, this will all become moot at level 15 when you get a thousand faces and can turn into a charau-ka or canopy troll at-will.

Animal mask is the cheapest at 2500. It requires a swift action and is for 5 min a day in 1 min increments. I use it on my nature fang and it works well.

As long as someone in your party can craft it, rhinarium paste can give you over a hundred hours of scent for less than the cost of an animal mask.

I will take a look at the items.

Your not wrong but there are some pretty strong caveats.

If someone can craft it. If you're allowed race specific items. If you don't have it up and a fight happens it useless (not worth a standard action).

One a day of overland travel you could burn through 8. 200gp out the window. Crafting this stuff without master alchemist is slow. In the order if a 2-3 a week with decent bonuses it will be really hard to keep up.


Fair enough, different items suit different needs. Personally, I'd probably go with the headband of the wolf once it's reasonably affordable, just for the convenience of having it always active. But the animal mask certainly has its advantages as well.

Grand Lodge

Headband is reasonable. I like a head slot item (mask) on a caster as I will likely want a headband for my mental stat.


i will probably retain animal companion at level 5 to get feather domain instead and i will take boon companion later to have it at full level.

Grand Lodge

It's a good option.

Lenses of the Predator’s Gaze is a good item for the build as well as you will be 2 levels behind.

looks like a good item :)


I'm going to pick Relic Channeler so i can consistently get the champion spirit.

I get 2 exotic weapon proficiency feats. One will probably be "Hornbow orc" but i don't know the 2nd one.


Nice idea but how are you qualifying for evangelist at level 6? You need to be able to cast 3rd level spells and have a bab of 5.

Special: Any one of the following:

base attack bonus +5
5 ranks in any skill other than Knowledge (religion), or
ability to cast 3rd-level spells.

So it's or between the +5 bab and the skill rank thing and the spell casting.

You don't need all 3 only one of them


Ah hero lab is requiring the 5 bab on top of the skill or spell.

Thats odd. I built a level 5 magus with 5 ranks in know planes (BAB definitely NOT 5) and Evangelist is selectable for me (in Herolab). Something off with either your copy or your version.


Yeah not sure... I went 5 druid and qualified for evangelist (5 ranks and 3rd level spell) switched out the one level for medium and said I wasnt qualified for it (aka no 3rd level spell)
