under the race i see no option to allow a larger weapon usage...
the feat says :
Benefit: When using summon monster to summon creatures whose alignment subtype or subtypes exactly match your aura, you may cast the spell as a standard action instead of with a casting time of 1 round."
my Q is:
if a creature is only "good" , Like "Agathion, Vulpinal" (from expanded summon monster), without LAW or CHAOS,
thanks a lot on the advice.
the melee is set (fighter). 2 hander a great sword.
i got now a Q on the cleric.
i think herald caller is amazing, with lvl 1feat to regain the medium armor back.
is this build a decent one? (we start at level 1, but here is the rest)
domain : (will effect the god of choice..)
Dwarf, cleric, level 1.
another Q:whats the benefit of Titan mauler other than a reach weapon + shield to a Invulnerable Rager X + 1 Titan fighter ?
the later can have DR of 1/2 lvl AND use a large size giant weapon with ease AND use a mithral full plate .
the titan mauler only add redice reach, which is nice - but not that amazing and the abiity to use 2 hander at 1 hand.
lastly, a 1 lvl oracle (lame) at lvl 9 seem like a must. immune to fatigue allow to use Furious Finish for massive damage with a single attack EVERY round.
also, for a druid - goliath a 1 level dip is almost needed.
a fighter level give:
first of all, thank you.a few Q's:
unlike the DR focus barbarian, you lack AC or DR, so how do you handle the full attack the foes give back ? (for example, if its not dead or more than 1 is present..)
also VS flyers / far away foes, what tools you have to deal with them ?
btw - barbarian 8 / druid 4 with shaping focus isnt half bad.
in a focused game (orcs, giants) aint a ranger > barbarian ?
we are starting, level 1 and up, giant slayer game.
Giants offer some heavy risk, reach, rock throwing, some scouting needed, big meat-piece of HP pool.
here are the options i though of:
1. Warpriest. Arsenal .
2. Ranger : Archery.
3. A melee Druid:
Goliath = both disguise as a giant for scouting and using all the LArge weapons found. the fact you stay humanoid means your armor will be decent (full plate dragon hide), and your weapon is solid.

can any one link some official ruling on the matter ?
can i attack, and ALSO cause a triggered effect on the target?
this built is special for wisdom to hits like guided hand.than you are a full caster and a full melee
og... and forgot:
Go Humanoid with wings:
go triton :
with echolocation spell your are batman, daredevil and some more all in one toon
i also had load of fun with :
1. Melee Bard (if group has a great #1 melee). or battle herald.
2. Samurai X / unchanied rogue 4. dex basd 2 weapon dagger master. you have good saves, skills, attack, debuff, some smite and a full animal companion. my halfling was a great killer.
3.Oracle of lunar that focus on melee with shadow bloodline for hide in plain sight at lvl 11.
4. Melee Bard with shadow bloodline for hide in plain sight at lvl 11.
skinshaper druid is my best one EVER.
human, 9 level casting.
feats: mounted combat + power attack.
you are the most versitile player on the table.
here is what you gain :
2. go Rider.
3. go caster.
4. spy mode.
good skills, god rp node decent melee, full caster and a mount.
Really more a build style, but probably a khopesh or similar, light armor, heavy will kill you in the desert. I'd probably go for more move and strike, more acrobatics, striking like the wind, sword and board, most likely.
Falchion, scimitar or khopesh.
also : Read about "Tahtib" (old martial arts of ancient Eghept).
as for skinshaper :it gets BOTH the +2 of alter self AND a +4 ....
also , the ability can be for ANY ability....
my character move it to charisma when in a city (with diplomacy full ranks).
also, with a full mount i kick a$$#.
there is nothing in the rules about Elementals using weapons.they fight with slams, they are slabs of stones with 2 slams.
where it tells you they have opposesd thumbs?
where is a single elemental in the monster's books that use any weapon ?
and i prefer skinshaper over urban druid.

why EVERY fighter i see tank wisdom ?i played a half elf (race trait +2 will and another +2 enchantments) .
with wisdom 14 (+2) and a trait (+1).
took iron will )+2) and gained a decent will save....
base of lvl, +2 cloak only . base+9 (+11 vs enchantments) isnt bad
BTW Damage isnt everying....
Druid can add trip (wolf) Grapple (anyting with GRAB).
a combat isnt a flow of HP running from one to another, it can be won with wit, with tactics .
i had a druid once with spring attack...... odd, i know.
earth elemental (small) with improve cover are the best scouts as well (+8 imp. cover, +4 size) and can enter the floor freely.....
so scout the enemy, understand it's weakspot, poison it's food and waters, than at night, as the camp is weak, earth glide in.... trun into a huge, pre-buffed animal and kill the entire camp.
here is another super stong option :
Base DR = 4 (barbarian).
1. you can speak

many options... from the wierd ooze form to giant to a dino lover.
Goliath Druid (giant form):
ride the Dino, kill with it...
Option 2: the rider :
the mage single attack:
here are 2 options i would consider:
lvl 1 : monk, martial artist (nonlawful martial artist - take street fighting...)
you are super tough, high HP, high DR, some flurry brawler options and grapple as off style .
with boon companion you even get a mount for traveling...
1. Battle and life.
2.speaker of the past.
3. Oracle spirit guide.

archaeologist ---- i cant understand why all like it?the round of bard boosting wont grow with your level - whats the point ?
so, level 7 arrived, i took a Roc, not a wolf for my charging lovely.
a) spring att (all 3)
a: dashing in and out, and arring a place i can charge the round after.
i just love the idea.
it was feat taxing, but well worth it.
what do you think ?
my mount is a large one (wolf after 7, warbull at lower levels.
i can go into a climber, swimmer, flyer humanoid when i want.
mount can get longlasting buffs:
all spells go into buffs and some little summon options.
in a city, and RP needed? buff charisma and use disguise and dimplomacy to RP like a real spy.
Yugoloth - the half demon .

Sadly no item buying or crafting.Just what we find
so, how can we build a solid melee druid without any wildshape ?
as for your Q's about getting the mount back - and why urban druid -
the animal companion is like the bat-mobile - a mount to keep guard when NOT in a city and help traveling about.
the druid can have :
how can i make it "matter" ?
All the while i can still melee ok.
Any other tips? Alternative ones ?
