Conditions : Verminous celestial hunter, with halfling caretaker to remove mindless trait and grant int at level 1.
Helpful halfing s well, to give aid another bonus of +4. With retraining available as a PFS character at level 7 so far i have the following:
Scorpion level 7 = BAB of +4
Strength score 23= +6
Grab = +4
Leech aspect(or other grapple boosting one) for +2
Size(large) = +1
Improved Grapple feat = +2
total of 19 when fighting alone
dirty fighting while flanking +2
Aid another (with benevolent weapon) = +5
Magic fang to claw = +1
total of 31 if i help.
The scorpion has an armor, but no other slots currently in use (only neck is available without a feat)
Any thoughts, suggestions, comments?
I'm not looking to neccessarily grapple one bad guy constantly, but rather, trying to make use of grappling with only one claw (-20 penalty) reliably on squishier less beefy characters like rogues, to keep them busy while other enemies are dealt with.
1) magic armor for the Scorp : Brawling, Adhesive
2) AoMF +2 or betterfor the scorp - adds to the to hit, replaces magic fang. Also, could use Greater Magic Fang.
3) Violet Thorny Ioun Stone
4) Extra Slot + Assorted Magic Items for the scorp, eg. Anaconda's Coils
5) Alchemical Resin, Dessicating Lubricant, tanglefoot bags (effects their cmb/cmd via entangle's -2 to hit)
6) Resinous Skin spell
I have noticed resinous skin, and considering taking it, wasnt sold just yet.
I am aware of anacondas coils, and not sure if i want to burn the feat and the cash, but i might..( the issue here is the bonus to grapple doesnt actually stack with a grapple aspect, same bonus, but it would allow me to boost something else)
violet thorny is a good suggestion, but like the coils i dont think it stacks with an aspect.
I have been considering the aomf, but they are pricey, so will probably just buy a rod of extend and GMF
I was unaware of the armor enchantments i will look into those.
Keep suggestions coming folks! Even if i shoot em down now, i may change my mind later if saomething new crops up.
Probably be worth it to add in Spiked Armor/Armor Spikes/Rosewood Armor. There is some discussion in these forums on how Armor Spikes work in a grapple, but I am of the school of adding a d6 in damage when your grapple does damage(constrict).
