View Full Version : ? about combining Pale Master DC build with Shiradi...

I've noticed that FoD is capped at caster lvl 25. I was wondering if one of you number crunch genius' could help me calculate what would be lost if you took 18W / 2 FvS over 20 Wiz. With the epic destinies, the 2 FvS and Shiradi you wouldn't have as much punch as a WF Sorc Shiradi but you'd still have the unlimited (almost) mana, while being able to switch to Magister for the DC's. With enough twists you could run Shiradi and still have +3 necro DC and EH could be fun.

Anyways, I was just wondering to myself and decided to ask the professionals what they think. Thanks for your time.

This is the sort of build Ive also been considering. Having trouble deciding whether to go Drow Pure Wiz, or Drow Wiz 18, FvS 2.

Caster level applies to spell pen and damage dice, not DCs. An 18/2 will be -1 DC compared to pure due to losing capstone, and -2 spell pen from having two fewer casting levels.

I've tried Shiradi on my wizard and thought it was lame and boring compared to my usual role as a pure DC caster. It felt sort of gimped to me. I really don't see the point of rolling a Necro focused PM to be Shiradi. I will grant you that this would be a style of play I would not enjoy on any build, so there's that.
