    My sorceress (far left) has both DC sorcerer spellcasting and the ability to pack a punch with a Divine Might boosted (+11-17 Divine Damage) RDD empowered (up to 38 Str) Mercurial Greatsword (x4 critical hits). Source: NWN EE, WoG Server, in a party with a teammate.

    Comment:

    This is a sorcerer with a full ‘undispellable’ spellbook, DC spell casting (effective spells requiring saving throws), high charisma and the ability to hit enemies hard with a Flame Weapon / Divine Might boosted, RDD Empowered Mercurial Greatsword or Scythe for x4 critical hits.

    At level 15: 161 damage with a +4 mercurial great sword

    It is optimised for the World of Greyhawk (WoG) PW Server however it should be very effective in any environment where spellsword armor (no arcane failure) is available. This will be more environments than expected if one invests in the craft armor skill (can take some points from search/spot/spellcraft), as one could craft a Mithral Chain Shirt (no arcane spell failure chain shirt) with a single bar of mithral and Epic Mage Armor will add +5 armor AC.

    HP and AB not the best but smart spellcasting can easily overcome this weakness.

    One could go Strength based however DC spell casting + extra spells / day seemed more optimal.

    Examples include:

    • Flank enemies using empowered summons to tank damage and AB bonus on attacks,
    • Both 50% concealment + 50% attack miss chance combination improved invisibility/darkness
    • Many ways to greatly reduce enemy AC by making them flat footed and enemies losing all dexterity, tumble and dodge AC bonuses, through disables, blindness or stopping time (Darkness, Grease, Stinking Cloud, Bigby’s Forceful Hand, Hold Monster, Time Stop)
    • True Strike spell for +20 AB for 1 round (note the character can hit hard in this round)
    • Boosted AC with Haste +4/Divine Shield +11-17 dodge AC and RDD +4 AC
    • Empowered Endurance or Strength to boost AB (up to +3AB) / HP (up to +120 HP)
    • Damage reduction from Protection from Elements/Premonition/Epic Warding.
