Holy Vind for PFS


Advice

Silver Crusade

I have the cleric-y stuff ready for a PFS Holy Vindicator. I need 2 (or 3) levels of a martial class. Keep in mind:

Half elf with Ancestral Arms Falcata (unless you can convince me otherwise)
Always equipped with shield.
Melee focused, with full spellcasting.
CHA and channeling can be dumped if necessary.

Here's my 3 choices so far:
2 levels of Barbarian. Combine with Travel domain for fast movement.
2 levels of Ranger. Easy TWF and a favored enemy (human, duh).
3 levels of Phalanx Fighter. One hand a Nodachi (No falcata here, I guess).

Help!!


Barb for rage + divine might + channel smite!

Ranger is second runner up.


Scrap that! Angel blooded aasimar oracle (lore) 2/ paladin 4/ HV 6

Traits= blade of mercy, any that gives a +1 to will saves
Stats=
Str: 16
Dex: 10
Con: 14
Int: 10
Wis: 10
Cha: 18

1) oracle- wolf scarred curse (extra bite attack), side step secret mystery, power attack
2) paladin-
3) paladin- extra lay on hands
4) pal-
5) pal- alignment channel
6) oracle-
7) HV- furious focus (lead with the bite attack)
8) HV
9) HV- what ever you like
10) HV
11) HV- channel smite*
12) HV

Cha= saves, AC, spell power, channel DC, channel (and LoH)/ day, smite bonuses, and I'm sure there is something else I'm missing.

You are wearing a Mithril b-plate for full mobility, you quick draw shield is slung (you still get that bonus from HV even if the shield isnt out) with a war hammer back up, and nodachi is your main weapon.

Use your HV levels to advance your oracle spells and I think you are set!

You can't get Power Attack at 1st level, since you don't have a +1 BAB.

Damn. I'm a big fan of Lore Oracle. Could also use that Paladin archtype that gives up spellcasting. That's a solid build.

Half Orc Ranger 2/Paladin 4/HV 6

Stats
STR 17
DEX 14
CON 14
INT 08
WIS 08
CHA 15

Ranger grabs TWF, using Orc Double Axe (both sides do d8 damage).
Favored Enemy Human, decent skills
Normal Paladin goodies, also covers other Knowledges

Full BAB (important), and always a d10 for HP (also important).

Honest mistake. We throw builds back and forth all the time.

And also, where's Wolf Scarred from? Can't find it.

Scarab Sages

Go paladin first, then oracle to fix that BaB issue. Should work out about the same. More initial martial capability than casting. By lvl 3 it won't make a difference.


Wolf scared curse take legalistic if you don't like that one.

Sorry about the grievous power attack err. I'll try to do better after I propperly berate myself ;)
