Battle Oracle without the melee


Advice

Silver Crusade

Half Orc Battle Oracle
Toothy
Wasting Curse
Revelation: Weapon Mastery: Bite (from Toothy)
Feat: Dazzling Display

At 1st level, Toothy here has about a +10 to Intimidate, and can Dazzling Display empty handed. 1st level spell Cause Fear stacks with Dazzling Display for shaken/frightened/etc.
He then levels as a caster.

Is this a flash in the pan build, or something solid to work off of?

Edit-
Society play, so 12th level max, and War Sight and Combat Healer for the 3rd and 7th level revelations.

Intimimancery is not a bad way to go, so long as you're prepared for the fear immune enemies.

Wear medium armour and carry a heavy shield, while keeping your other hand free for casting spells; it may be a good idea to have a spiked gauntlet anyway however.

What you may wish to consider is a single level into a rogue with the thug archetype. That way if you're really blowing them out of the water, you can have people running away.

Unfortunately, I don't think the battle mystery really brings much to this other than the initial Weapon Focus. It may be worth considering working up to it a bit more slowly and using a mystery that's more in line with this tactic.

The Exchange

if your enjoying the mental control aspect of intimidate maybe take an oracle mystery with a illusion focus. dazzled, feared, confused, these are all nice to apply to people and illusion is a pretty powerful school.
