Best Sorcerer bloodline for a word casting sorcerer?


Advice


I'm considering writing up a wordcaster sorcerer as a back up character and I was curious which bloodline might be the best for it. I know that it'd depend on what I'm looking to focus on as a sorcerer, but I'm curious if any stand out as especially good or bad.

My problem is, that all the options (animate dead, battlefield control, summoning, blasting, etc...) all sound like they'd be fun under a word caster, so I've not yet decided on a focus.

Any suggestions or direction on the matter of bloodlines?


Well wordcasters get to summon as a standard action so that's a good build, Abyssal or Primal bloodlines can help with that, you can also combine effects like a low level fire effect and a high level acid effect and benefit from the bonus to fire spells from draconic or primal bloodline on all the damage. So I'd say primal bloodline, you get a bonus to summoning and you can use the blasting bonus too.

Interesting. I shall definitely check them out then, thanks.

You may also want to consider which bloodline's bonus spells best fill in the gaps in the effect words since you get the bonus spells as full spells. There are some things you can do with full spells that you cannot do with wordcasting and vice versa.

There is something to be said for HASTE, and a few others like LIGHT that just don't move over to word casting easily, Illusion and Enchantment schools don't play well for wordcasting without a lot of help from the GM. Sound damage seemed to have limited ability.

I like the Int based Sorcerers, more skills.
