Character choice


Advice

Dark Archive

I am being indecisive on what I want to play, so I am posting here for some ideas.

Here is the party so far:

Fighter (Melee based)
Inquisitor
Cleric (subs for inflict)
Ranger (don't know if he is going archer or twf)

So, as the 5th character, what do you suggest?


Wizard or Sorc or arcane caster. It seems to be the main whole in the lineup.


Bard. Magican bard/pathfinder savant is fun, or arcane duelist bard (either archer or melee -- he can do both) or plain old bard. Sandman if you want to be a bard/rogue type.


I have been eyeing the inquisitor for my next character. Of all the new classes, inquisitor and oracle are my favorites.


Inquisitor seems to have the best flavour. I would go with it. I never got warm with the PF-Ranger and Fighter hasn't got enough options.
I never really liked the cleric, he seems too ... blank.

My personal favourites are wizard, alchemist, inquisitor.

They could use a Rogue if the GM is fond of traps.


Summoners are fun too.


Mechanically at least, you need an arcane caster-
Wizard for pure power
Human Arcane Bloodline, Sorcerer (extra spells fav
ored Class) for big range spont casting ( my favorite kind of mage)
or Witch for something new and cool SLA's that don't run out.

Cheers.


Mystic theurge can be a lot of fun if you can get by the 'hazing levels'

Or if he doesn't want to haze levels a witch with the strength patron gets some of the best divine buffs

Witch eldritch knight has a lot of good things going for it (heal, righteous might, raise dead, etc).

Silver Crusade

From the looks of it most of your damage will be from melee. So you have a choice to make.

1. Arcane caster of some type.
Crowed Control, Damage, some Buffs.

2. Bard melee build of some type.
Buffing, Crowed Control, and Damage.
