I guess it's time to show my build for an upcoming campaign that may need some help.
Grey Elf, Wizard 3, Master Specialist 2, Incantatrix 4, Olin Glisir 1. School of specialization: Transmutation. Banned schools: Evocation and Enchantment. Later banned school: Necromancy

Spells: all the spells that are great to persist, all the spells that f**cking kill people, and a lot of spells from logic ninja's wizard handbook "playing batman".

Feats:
Scribe Scroll [Wizard]
Extend Spell [1st level]
Otherworldly [1st Flaw]
Spell Focus (Transmutation) [2nd Flaw]
Item Familiar [3rd level]
Skill Focus (Spellcraft) [Master Specialist]
Iron Will [Otyugh Hole]
Persist Spell [incantatrix]
Reach Spell [6th level]
Ocular Spell [9th level]
Chain Spell [Olin Glisir secret]
Quicken Spell [Chaos Shuffle]
Easy Metamagic (Ocular Spell) [Chaos Shuffle]
Easy Metamagic (Reach Spell) [Chaos Shuffle]
Can't think of it right now [Chaos Shuffle]

24 int. rest of stats are really low. He's in the old age bracket.

Any suggestions to improve this would be welcome.
I seriously don't think this could be optimized anymore then it is you pulled out all the tricks... But I sense a book to head incident. Might wanna up your dodge ac
LOL. Still not entirely certain on spell list. Need to make sure I'm not missing any essential persitable spells. May need uncanny forethought. Spell list will be up soon so adjustments can be made to it if need be. Also need to know which spells should be prepared each day. 
For spells remmeber you don't need all of the ones on the "spells that f**king kill people" only a couple per level as emergency then you can focus on your buffs. There is a handbook out there that I believe points out many arcan buffs. I'm assuming this is being a gish or am I wrong in that regard, since you have the gish infrastructure for a large part and could easily be made one.
If it isn't a gish don't focus on combat buffs but buffs or spells which grant major immunities (such as mindblank) to make your character even harder to shut down. That would be the secondary benefit of persisting my mind just goes to gish or super blaster (which you wouldn't do with your build)
We actually have melee covered so gish is unnecessary. My original build was a superblaster with Arcane Thesis on Enervation and different Metamagic feats but the DM said that that was far too strong so my new build is just an invulnerability focused build that makes enemies easier for my allies to kill. Also uses Cooperative Metamagic to great effect due to there being 3 casters in the party.
Yeah then I suppose it would be a good idea to use anything to get immunities. This will shore up your weakness and let you play god more with your slots
You need a Lesser Schema of Favor of the Martyr. Just sayin'.

Also, Stone Body is pretty kicksass.

Sorry Mister Nazi, I feel terribly sorry, for mistyping one single letter.

FYI, the lack of capitalization is responsible too.
Also punctuation, omissions, and using a non-standard abbreviation for the book. A lot can be forgiven or ignored, but when it interferes with the reading of the post, a line must be drawn.

Also, Nazi? Not cool, man. Not cool at all.

Stone body seems terrible. 50% arcane spell failure chance? Ouch that hurts.

...No. What book are you getting that from?

It says it works like iron body except as noted and iron body gives 50% spell failure. Mine is the 3.5 edition one from PGtF.
Spell Compendium, bro.

Wow. Much better version of the spell. Too bad it's lvl 6. Pretty sweet that Transmute Mud to Rock auto heals you while under the effects of Stone Body. Too bad Polymorph doesn't give you the larger hit die of the creature and their con score in extra hit points.
My DM is ruling with CustServ on that Touch is considered a fixed range for Persist Spell. That frees up 2 feats. Any suggestions?
