I agree with the part about not having channel energy, but I'm still curious about boons that mention 'Exalted' levels when one has none. Would that just mean that that boon has no effect for non-exalted?
Looking at the Deific Obedience feat, I'm wondering how some of the boons would function for someone without the Exalted prestige class. For instance, Sarenrae's second boon says you add your Exalted levels to your cleric levels for calculating the power of your channel energy. If you're not an Exalted, would this ability do anything? What if you have the feat, but no cleric levels?
I don't know if it's been mentioned, but you could see about getting a Simulacrum (or the real thing, I guess) of Nocticula to give a +6 profane bonus, instead of the Succubus' +2.
Additionally, being venerable (as opposed to middle-aged) would give a net +3 to mental stats, with a -6 to physical (although there should be ways to avoid that, at 20th level).
The spell Moment of Greatness can also double a morale bonus for a single check.
The feat Virtuous Creed (of Humility) allows you to add your Wisdom to diplomacy, in addition to Charisma.
What type of effect is Nocticula's Seductive Presence? If it functions like Frightful Presence, it would be fear (which doesn't make sense since the chance of a paladin meeting her in Wrath of the Righteous is fairly high). I could also see it being enchantment, but that would defeat the purpose of the ability. Does it just not have a type?
Thanks! I already have Ill Omen, actually. Mind Thrust I and II, as well, since I could do decent damage early on. I'll probably keep taking them, but they look like they fall off a bit. The added status effects are nice, but the kinda odd scaling makes them look a bit weird (to me, at least). I'm not sure if the change from d6s to d8s is worth another spell level. Admittedly, I don't usually play full casters, so this is purely subjective.
Magical Knack gives me +2 to my psychic level, and expanded arcana will help me fill out spells known. The archetypes I took (wildblooded stormborn and spell sage) give some conditional though potent boosts (+2 during weather, and +4 1 spell/day).
While I'll still have high DC's (mythic and all), I know we'll be facing some potent enemies, so save-or-suck spells will not be as useful then.
I didn't even know Battering Blast was a thing, but I'll probably get a staff of it, at least.
Thanks for all the feedback, I really appreciate it!
My friend is running Wrath of the Righteous (albeit heavily modified). For whatever reason, I decided to make a character focused around a high caster level.
Dear Mr. Jacobs,
