Hi,
We are currently in Feldgrau and we are facing some magic heavy fights.
I currently play a Two Handed Fighter and will be soon 9th level.
The Man :
CG Human Fighter 8th
STR 23 (+2 Belt)
DEX 10
CON 18 (+2 Belt)
INT 10
WIS 13
CHA 10
HP 110
Fort : + 11
Will : + 6
Ref : +3
CA : 22
Feats :
WF - GWF - WS : Falchion
Power Attack
Furious Focus
Iron Will
Intimidating Prowess
Dazzing Display
Shatter Defense
Cornugon Smash
Magig Items : Mainly +1 Items (Ring, Amulet, Cape), a belt of physical might 2, a +1 keen Falchion (Magic Items are scarce in our campaign..)
I plan to change class by 9th or 10th level in order to face Wake of the Watcher with better Will Save, I see Barbarian but losing the Heavy Armor will make my AC even more ridiculous for a front liner, Cleric of Desna, with Travel Domain and Luck Domain (mainly for extra movement) but loosing + 1 BAB put me too far away from Deadly Stoke...
If anybody has a suggestion or a proposal...


I suspect you haven’t gotten replies because the folks in this forum are mostly GMs, and we wouldn’t want to spoil the adventure for you by giving you advice that would indirectly reveal the nature of the threats you’ll soon face.

Your character is heavily invested in hitting things with a falchion. This being Pathfinder, you will never run out of problems that can be solved by hitting them with a falchion. You’re also correct that the will save is an achilles heel for your character, and that finding ways to compensate for that will be important. The build options you are considering are reasonable and viable. Improved Iron Will and Heroic Will are other options to consider, and perhaps your GM would let you go back and take your level 8 stat bump to Wisdom instead of Strength.

What I recommend is that you sit down with your GM and tell him or her that you would really like a chance to upgrade your falchion significantly--a epic hero needs an epic weapon, after all. Request a break in the action at some point that will let you shop for or commission the creation of a new or improved blade. A magic-item-poor campaign is rough on noncasters; make sure your GM understands part of the fun of the game for you is finding your character the right tools for the job.

Hi and thanks for the advice, I've already bump the strength at level 8 so bumping the wisdom will be difficult, the DM is not very tolerant, I've already try to rewrite some features of my character, like the crit-build, and he was completely against... I've try to explain him that I'm very vulnerable in melee, 22 AC, and against Will saves, but he only see that I make 2D4+25 per hit, killing a lot of opponents in one round... I thing I'm going to take 2 or 3 levels of Separatist Priest of Desna, for Travel domain (Yum Yum extra movement) and Repose domain for the no-save effect against undead, the Will save boost and some utility spells, use of CLW wands as a second healer.

I was planning to take a level of Transmuter Mage for the familiar, the Will boost of the familiar (Hedgehog, but I was planning to take a hamster and calling him Boo...) and the ability boost but as it was an alteration boost that does not add with the belt, I choose Priest instead....
Do you think it is a viable option ?


Instead of cleric, why not take inquisitor? You get one domain, some spells, judgement (for +1 saves) and some skills.

Or even shaman: spells, familiar, 1 hex (or more via feats).

And your plan isn't that bad: No spoilers, but beeing a player in WotW, having a high will save is kinda good :D

Hey, I was not familiar with the inquisitor, it is a good idea and in accordance with my intimidate build, I just take a look to it, and it could be a real option, thanks a lot for the advice
