I'm currently creating sorcerer who is all spec'd out for air savant when U9 is released. here is my current feat list:

1st Mental Toughness
3rd Toughness
6th maximize
9th Improved mental toughness
12th Spell Focus: Evocation
15th empower
18th Quicken

All other things aside, I want to know if I should replace Improved Mental Toughness with heighten, to make use of electric loop. The only thing is, that's about the only really significant thing I think I'd be getting out of it. Would I have the spell points I need for prolonged battles if I was using heighten? Is heighten worth the feat for a sorcerer?

If you really want to comment on my feat list because I've done something g stupid, or it can be improved, please make the first question priority. (I'm quite open to constructive criticism)

Drop both mental toughness feats. You shouldn't need them.

I'd go:

Toughness
Max
Emp
Height
SF: Evoc
GSF: Evoc
Quicken

On a first life WF caster - you don't say what race (except not human) or life. You might want to keep extend
for leveling then swap it out at cap. For human/drow I probably wouldn't take quicken or the second SF feat.

Im not taking toughness on my sorcerer (18 base con). I'm not taking extend (nerfed in U9). I'd never take mental toughness. I'm not taking quicken (not WF).

My feat list so far at level 6:
1: Empower, maximize
3: PL: cleric (useful for self healing, will swap it when not useful)
6: spell focus: conjuration (niacs + acid blast is best combo ATM, IMO)

What I'm thinking for the rest:
9: heighten (definite must have for all casters)
12:
15: spell penetration
18: greater spell penetration

I've been focused on air savant since I saw wings + knockdown immunity. I'll swap to SF/GSF: evocation probably at some stage. Maybe I'll keep this life as earth/water spec for raiding, see how I go.
