Bloodrager and Dragon Disciple


Advice


I've been looking at playing a Bloodrager entering into Dragon Disciple. I have a couple questions about it, that I haven't been able to find answers for.

1) How would entering Dragon Disciple affect bloodline progression of a Crossblooded Rager? Would both bloodlines still progress or only the Draconic bloodline?

2)How does Draconic Bloodrager interact with Dragon Disciple for natural attacks? Since Draconic Bloodragers get permanent claws at level 1, would adding Dragon Disciple add a permanent bite attack too?


AFAIK: It's not really RAW and somewhat up to the DM/Playgroup what happens when you take the DD prestige class on your bloodrager. This is assuming it is allowed:

1) the same way the sorcerer does, you still get to chose what abilities you get as you level. Neither blooodline actually progresses, your bloodline which is a cross between the 2 progresses.

2) bloodragers don't actually get claws all the time. They are only "on" when bloodraging. I would rule that other abilities (bite mainly) would also be "on" while raging.

1. Both

2. You only get the claws while Bloodraging. But - when you are Bloodraging you would also gain a bite attack.

Edit: Dang ninjas! Always strike when you're busy double-checking the rules wording.


Thanks for the insight on how Crossblooded works with Dragon Disciple guys.

I actually thought that Draconic Bloodragers just always had claws on, as their description just mentions growing claws, without the part about when bloodraging that gets mentioned in the Abyssal bloodline. Well I guess it's back to the drawing board then

While you're limited to your rage - by level 3-4 you'll be raging the bulk of the time that you're in combat anyway. It's not until around then that you need to specialize due to magic weapons etc - so you can also just carry around a greatsword or some such.

If you go half-orc or tiefling you can have a bite attack all the time - so you could save a round of rage each fight by charging without raging and get 1.5x STR damage (since you only have 1 nat attack then) and only rage once already in melee.

And of course - if you still don't seem to have enough rounds - Extra Rage is always an option. (I wouldn't ever recommend it to a pure barbarian or bloodrager since they eventually get more rage rounds than they need, but it isn't a bad choice if you're going to go into Dragon Disciple and therefore never get past 12+Con rounds of rage without it.)

I have a Android Bloodrager Dragon Disciple.

I don't know if I will go very far into Dragon Disciple though.
