Shoutout to Roahin that posted similar build
and I postponed making this one for a long time thanks to that, allowing me to focus on others, but I feel like there are some serious differences in feats and spell selection between the two.
I don’t believe in her hitting much with Power Attack+Cornugon Smash and prefer just manually using dazzling. Dreadful Carnage is an option too, but I don’t feel like she lasthits much, unless you constantly babysit her.
The plan is to play her as a standard tank till level 5, switch to Mithral Heavy plate and start casting pretty much the moment you arrive to your capital(presuming you saved up enough cash to buy it), then go for Heart of Valor and Mithral Armor +5 late from the master artisan. You can stick with Heart of Valor for the whole game wtihout much problems if you don't get Mithral heavy +5, it's not a big deal
Has all the spells you would need from arcane caster and can turn into a full fighter with Transformation should you need it. Also has an option to be a dragon Late-game should you reach lvl20,
I would like to give her crane style line, but I can't find 4 feats to toss out.
