Oracle Mystery

Silver Crusade

Hi, what mystery would you recommend for an "oracle of Lissala"? I was thinking occult or spellscar would work. I know that oracle's do not have to worship one deity like a cleric, but I am working on this concept as a cohort to a cleric of Lissala.

Lore could work too.

I have been playing with the Lore mystery, but it is hard to make it effective at low levels. The character's ability scores are Str 7, Dex 13, Con 15, Int 12, Wis 10, Cha 17 (+2 half-elf bonus). Unfortunately, we cannot shift stats around.

Spellscar, Lore, and Occult all fit perfectly. Time, to represent the millennia that have passed since Thassilon's end. Apocalypse, if you want to hearken back to Earthfall itself.

Lore oracles aren't hard to make effective, they just have few incredibly attractive features. You'd make a great diviner, of course, and on top of your usefulness as a knowledge monkey, you're still a 9 level caster. You can be the party face, the utility caster, and a buffer or summoner or whatever you want to be on top of it.

Lore would be a great mystery with that array, Sidestep Secret would help a ton with what would otherwise be a very unimpressive armor class. The bonus spells aren't very impressive, true, but fortunately you're a half-elf so you can take Ancient Lorekeeper and replace them.

As a side note, since your physical stats are so bad that you're locked into the backline caster role you should consider taking one of the truly awful curses like Blackened so you can use Oracle's Burden.
