View Full Version : Bladeforged Paladin question

11-25-2013, 09:41 PM
Since I have 3 wiz, 3fvs and 3 sorc past lives...my next life I am gonna stay my sorc build for a long time. Would I be better off to go bladeforged paladin since they don't have -2 to cha? I have never done an iconic. If I do TR into a bladeforged will I immediately be back to 15 and rdy to lvl up to 28 with all my previous past lives as well as the bladeforged perks?

Relative to WF, yes, Bladeforged is better for sorcs. You lose 2 Dex and start with 45% healing amp in exchange for 8 base Charisma, slashing resistance, and a few other small bonuses, but neither penalty is much of a hindrance for an arcane class.

Also, yes, you start at 15 when TRing into an iconic and keep your previous past lives (barring any TRing bugs).

The only drawbacks to TRing into Iconics are (A) you can't TR again until you hit level cap (28 now, 30 later); and (B) if you want to get rid of your initial class level, you have to do an LR +1 after leveling to 15. [Fortunately, BF sorc 18 / pal 2 is still a good combo, so even that isn't necessary.]
