    Default Reaper capable Favored Soul?

    I'm finally finishing up completionist and after Warlock I only need 3 more lives, one of which is Favored Soul. My current build is a Warlock and so far it's been a Reaper life.
    I don't care if I can only run 1 skull, but I would really like to continue with Reaper on my Fvs life.

    Any good Fvs builds out there that can handle it? My search-fu has come up empty.

    Thanks

    I would definitely just do DC casting FvS. DC casting is the way to go for casters in reaper.

    The only other question is whether you'll mostly be running in full groups, or shortmanning. If it's the former, you can mostly ignore doing damage, and just focus on healing and CC. If you're only running reaper 1-3 skulls it doesn't really matter either way.

    Go human, helf or Deep Gnome. Dragonborn is also an option for +3 evoc DC but it's really expensive on the AP. Max your WIS and DCs (see guide in my signature,) get good defenses, and high positive spellpower and crit chance. If you're going the more offensive route, obviously get some force/light/fire spellpower.

    Focus on Evocation, Enchantment, and Necromancy. What school you specialize in (i.e. take the feats for) depends on what you want to do, but each has good arguments. Don't forget the Conjuration DC for Cometfall, but it's not worth using feats on.

    Important Feats:
    -Enlarge, Quicken, Heighten
    -Spell Pen and Greater Spell Pen (if you're not going to be running much epic stuff, you can probably drop these)
    -Spell Focus and Greater Spell Focus
    -Wizard PL
    Epic:
    -Burst of Glacial Wrath

    Spells (take in this order, important in bold):
    1: Nightshield, who cares what else
    2: Soundburst, who cares what else
    3: Who cares
    4: Holy Smite, then choose between FoM, Deathward, Cure Critical, Order's Wrath, and Inflict Critical Wounds
    5: Greater Command, Slay Living, Raise Dead, Divine Punishment OR Mass Cure Light
    6: Three of these four: Blade Barrier, Cometfall, Symbol of Persuasion, Heal
    7: Symbol of Stunning, Destruction, Resurrection
    8: Everything here is equally mediocre so decide for yourself. This is the easiest place to fit in a way to heal Palemasters and/or a Mass Cure.
    9: Implosion, Energy Drain, True Resurrection OR Mass Heal
