Combining the Paladin Warrior of Holy Light Archetype with EVANGELIST prc


Advice


Greetings forum dwellers,

I finally got around to building a new 1st level Paladin of Sarenrae, and I was wondering if the Warrior of Holy Light Archetype was:

a) Society legal (pretty sure it is, just wanted to confirm)
b) Worked with Evangelist prestige class the way I think it does with the prestige classes ability "Aligned Class"

For easy reference, the prestige class is on page 198 of Inner Sea Gods with the following bit on "aligned class":

"Aligned Class (Ex): Evangelists come from many
different backgrounds, and they show an unusual range of
diversity. At 2nd level, the evangelist must choose a class
she belonged to before adding the prestige class to be her
aligned class. She gains all the class features for this class,
essentially adding every evangelist level beyond ist to her
aligned class to determine what class features she gains.
She still retains the Hit Dice, base attack bonus, saving
throw bonuses, and skill ranks of the prestige class, but
gains all other class features ofher aligned class as well as
those of the evangelist prestige class."

And Warrior of Holy Light is in Advanced Player Guide, Page 118, with this class feature being the biggy:

At 4th level, a warrior of the holy
light learns to use the power of her faith to bolster her
defenses and aid her allies. This class feature replaces the
paladin’s spells class feature. A warrior of the holy light
does not gain any spells or spellcasting abilities, does not
have a caster level, and cannot use spell trigger or spell
completion magic items.
At 4th level, the warrior of the holy light gains one
additional use of her lay on hands ability per day. She gains
one additional use of lay on hands per day for every four
levels she attains beyond 4th. She can call upon the power
of her faith as a standard action. This causes a nimbus of
light to emanate from the warrior of the holy light in a
30-foot radius. All allies in this area (including the warrior
of the holy light) receive a +1 morale bonus to AC and on
attack rolls, damage rolls, and saving throws against fear
as long as they remain in the area of light. This power lasts
for 1 minute.
At 8th level, the nimbus of light heals the paladin and
her allies, curing of them of 1d4 points of ability damage,
as per the spell lesser restoration. A creature can only be
healed in this way once per day.
At 12th level, the nimbus of light is treated as daylight
for the purposes of affecting creatures with sensitivity to
light. In addition, the nimbus grants allies in the area
resistance 10 to one type of energy, selected by the warrior
of the holy light when this power is activated.

Thanks for any advice/help in advance!

all evangelist levels past 1 stack with all of your first classes levels. So a Warrior of the Holy Light 7/Evangelist 4 would have that class ability as a level 10 WOTHL. Your BaB is gonna suffer going into evangelist as a martial though. I have no idea about PFS legality.

I realize that my BAB will suffer, and 1 will lag 1 level behind class ability-wise, but it seemed like a very flavorful character. I may be asking too in advance on this character though. Thanks for the input, Sumutherguy!


Can you get a hold of a copy if the latest pfs guide that lists the acceptable classes and prestige classes?

I was hoping to get this character built before my local PFS session meets, which is where I could get the copy from. Unless it is the same as pdf available online...

The evangelist is legal for play and can be taken at 6th level. Warrior of Holy Light is legal for play.

Carry on.

Evangelist is perfectly legal for PFS. Here's the Additional Resources link: LINK


Thank you Johnnycat and Harley Quinn!


It seems Hospitaler mixes well with Warrior of Light, so the build looks like the following, roughly speaking. Any input would be appreciated.

Half-elf
LG Paladin Lvl 1
Paladin (Warrior of Holy light/Hospitaler) 1
Skill Focus (Diplomacy)
Looking to focus on Lay on Hands/Channeling to effective in the group, otherwise whips out scimitar to slice&dice.

Not entirely what feats I would be taking besides Deific Obedience& Weapon Focus(Scimitar).

Maybe "Bestow Hope" for better channeling effects or "Sun-Striker," since scimitars are great for crits?
