hello, I am quite new to this kind of game. and English isn't my native. sorry.
but I am looking items for caster levels, like robes of blazing and orange prims stone.
cheap are preferable. I can take expensive ones as well for reference.
note 1 : I make a new starter class for wizard at lvl 5. however I have my own build.
note 2 : can I build costume magic armor in hero lab ? (since wizard cant wield normal armor.)
AETHERType inhaled; Addiction moderate, Fortitude DC 16
Price 20 gp
Effect 1 hour; +1 caster level
Effect 1d4 hours; user must make a caster check to cast spells, DC 15 + spell level
Damage 1d2 Con damage
... that's probably your cheapest caster level booster item... assuming your caster is happy being a drug addict...
But the effect are good.
Do caster check can be helped with spellcraft skill?
You need actual caster level boosters, or things that explicitly help with caster level checks, such as an Otherworldly Kimono.
That said, if you are level 13 wizard and have an orange prism ioun stone, an otherworldly Kimono and are hopped up on aether then your caster level checks have a +6 bonus. That lets you cast level 5 spells even if you roll a 1 on the check. Level 7 spells you can cast 90% of the time.
