Hi, I was thinking about how to utilize "throw your weight around" best, and came to the conclusion that a melee-splashed lich would be best.
-18 levels of wizard, 2 paladin (or something else) for proficiencies and saves
-Max int and con
-dwarven axe + fanion (no spell failure) + shadowmail (no spell failure)
lots of HP which also improve the damage, without compromising DCs too much. Not really sure about the playstyle but i like the idea... probably sitting in the middle of persistant aoe, turtling up or mopping up stuff with the dwarven axe. Or CCing stuff and swapping to a greataxe should also be possible. Draconic incarnation might work well here as destiny, dreadnought might be fun, too.
this is not a cookie-cutter shiradi build, but just a fun idea utilizing some of the new enhancement stuff.
did anybody try something like this? what do you think?
