Character Optimization - Will pay for services. Erudite

Last post
Looking for an experienced 3.5 dnd character optimizer to build an erudite. Will pay for services.
You shouldn't have too much difficulty building an Erudite. They're pretty awesome.
This is how the board works: You put in the minimal effort to give it your best shot, then others will step in to show you how you can improve upon your concept.
Erudite 20 is fine.
Mind's Eye updates aren't necessary to learn how to play it.
Erudite = Psion , but with slightly different build and tactics.
Mid game Erudite = Psion build ... almost exactly Psion tactics.

Take Elemental Envoy feat at level 1 , but retrain it away at level 6.
Take the Powerstone feat at level 1 , use it all game all levels.
Take Linked Power metapsi feat at level 3 , use it all game all levels.
Turn into Psion ... see the Psion guide on the Psi board.

If your DM doesn't give you opportunities to learn more powers,
you are a Bad Wilder on surprise and first rounds, Bad Psion after.
If your DM does give you opportunities to learn more powers,
you are a Bad Psion on surprise and first rounds, more glittery Psion after.


EDIT --- oh I almost forgot ... I work for cheese, glorious cheese.

Here comes your 19th forums breakdown ... ohh who's to blame, it ain't 5E driving you insane.

If you're working for cheese, should you be advocating the Convert Spell to Power alternative class feature and the quintessence/soul crystal combination?

The kraken stirs. And ten billion sushi dinners cry out for vengeance. - Good Omens

Co-Author of the Dreamfane, Euralden Eye, Gajuisan Crawler, Gruesome Lurker, Fulminating Crab, Ironglass Rose, Sheengrass Swarm, Spryjack, Usunag, and Warp Drifter, and author of the Magmal Horror from Force of Nature.

My most popular campaign item; for all your adventuring convenience.
Zauber's Mutable Rod: This rod has a number of useful functions that make it easier to live in the wilderness. It is made of polished wood, with five studlike buttons on one end. Each button produces a different effect when pressed. Unless otherwise noted, the rod’s functions have no limit on the number of times they can be employed. When button 1 is pressed, one end of the rod produces a small flame, equivalent to a candle. When button 2 is pressed, the rod unfolds into a two-person tent, complete with bedrolls and warm blankets. When button 3 is pressed, the rod becomes a one-handed hammer, suitable for pounding pitons into a wall. When button 4 is pressed, the rod becomes a sturdy iron spade. When button 5 is pressed, the rod becomes a wooden bucket able to hold 2 gallons of liquid. Once per day, it can be commanded to fill with fresh water. If the rod is seriously damaged or broken in any of its alternate forms (button 2, 3, 4, or 5), it reverts to its basic rod form and cannot be activated for 24 hours. Moderate conjuration; CL 9th; Craft Rod, minor creation; Price 375 gp; Weight 2 lb.

This is how the board works: You put in the minimal effort to give it your best shot, then others will step in to show you how you can improve upon your concept.


To clarify, the more info you provide and more work you do on your own, the more you will get in return. For instance, what stat generation method are you using, what level will you be, what books do you have access to, what house rules do you use? All important questions we need answers to before we can start anything. 


If you throw out what you'd like to do with this PC, we can focus on that even more.



  • If you had said fighter, we might build you a sword and shield guy, a two weapon guy, or an archer. All valid builds for a "fighter" 

  • If you had said dwarven axe fighter, we would know to focus on heavy armor, a two handed axe, and maybe the deepwarden prestige class.

You didn't read the thread, did you? Let me sum it up in four lines.

WE DO NOT DO THIS WORK FOR PAY.

WE DO NOT BUILD YOUR CHARACTERS FOR YOU.

WHAT YOU GET OUT OF THIS FORUM DEPENDS ON HOW MUCH WORK YOU PUT INTO IT.

EVEN IF WE WERE DOING THIS, YOU HAVE NOT SUPPLIED ENOUGH INFORMATION FOR US TO WORK WITH.

I hope that helps. If you provide even some basic information, a starter build, or similar, we might still be able to help you. But we will not do this for money, nor will we do your work for you.

Seishi: I think it might be fun to have a one-off [game] tuned fairly, but with the intention of wiping the party. 

DisposableHero_: if [my campaign] has taught me nothing else, it is that with this group, nothing tuned fairly will ever wipe the party

RadicalTaoist: I've been throwing **** at this group that's 5 levels over CRed in DFN, and have yet to wipe the party.

Thanks for the emails.
I did not know it was against the rules to pay someone $100 for building a character.

=bG
The whole point of these boards is to come with a concept and show at least some effort.  

Most will gladly assist in throwing ideas if they have something to work with; else don't be rude. Simply Google-Fu.
EDIT --- oh I almost forgot ... I work for cheese, glorious cheese.

If you're working for cheese, should you be advocating the Convert Spell to Power alternative class feature and the quintessence/soul crystal combination?



Hey --- this is like the d&d version of a Refridgerator.

The cheese will keep literally forever.
And the wrapping is extra sparkly.

Oh!
Have it be cheese made with Minor Creation and
a low enough ML, so it expires before it makes you
... constipated.

Here comes your 19th forums breakdown ... ohh who's to blame, it ain't 5E driving you insane.

 

I did not know it was against the rules to pay someone $100 for building a character.



The point of the posts explaining how this works to you, (as far as I have gathered) was that people will do this for you for free. If you clarify your request.

No one (smart) wants to give you any of their paypal/credit card info so you can pay them (and most probably steal all their money),

"In a way, you are worse than Krusk"                               " As usual, Krusk comments with assuredness, but lacks the clarity and awareness of what he's talking about"

Can you do an erudite build?
It takes a lot of gall to suite a post asking for more information and then provide *less*.
Ability score generation method. Allowed books. Houserules if any. Party composition. Desires role in party and other party members already known. Preferred race. Starting level.

ALL of these are needed before we van even.start to help you, and that help won't.be perfect unless you supply a build of your own first.

Capische?

Can you do an erudite build?



Here is a fairly solid, classic build by Tleilaxu_Ghola. Just swap telepath with Erudite.

Race: Elan
Build: Telepath 20
Feats: Any, must have EK(Astral Seed) and skill focus (craft [basket weaving])

1. Acquire a loaf of bread (2cp)
2. Turn the bread into a sandwich (craft DC 5) (probably 2 minutes)
3. Polymorph the sandwich (preferably ham with mustard, pepperoni, salami, and jalapenos) into a fuzzy little bunny. (NPC casting 1200 gp) (1 standard action)
4. Cast astral seed (10 minutes)
5. Ritualistically slay yourself with favored method of suicide. Be sure to place your storage crystal next to the sandwich turned bunny. (I prefer to be killed with a dagger to the heart... ) (Approximately 5 rounds)
6. Use mind-switch (the 6th level power) to switch with the rabbit, while in your storage crystal. (1 std action)
7. Metamorph into a troll and smash your storage crystal (now containing the mind of a sandwich). (2 standard actions)
8. Use psychic chirurgery to remove your negative level gotten from committing suicide. (10 minutes) 9. Dismiss your metamorphosis and manifest dispel psionics on yourself (to dispel the polymorph).  (2 standard actions)  thestormwindfallacy.multiply.com/journal... 



100$ please?

I do, however, have one last lesson on this subject. That last one? The only build in this post that can one-shot average opponents[by dealing twice as much damage as they have HP? I would argue that it is not optimized. Why isn't it optimized? Because it's overkill. Overkill is NOT optimizing. This means that there are portions of this build dedicated to damage which can safely be removed and thrown elsewhere. For example, you probably don't need both Leap Attack AND Headlong Rush at the same time. You could pick up Extra Rage feats for stamina, feats to support AoO effects, feats that work towards potential prestige classes, and so on. However, you could also shift our ability scores around somewhat. I mean, if you're getting results like that with 16 starting Strength, maybe you can lower it to 14, and free up four points to spend somewhere else - perhaps back into Charisma, giving you some oomph for Intimidating Rage or Imperious Command if you want. You can continue to tune this until it deals "enough" damage - and that "enough" does not need to be "100%". It could easily be, say, 80% (leaving the rest to the team), if your DM is the sort who would ban one-hit killers.

Thats a legit build that most 3.5 optimizers you talk to will have at least heard of in reference if they don't know the specifics. I think it even won a few contests back in the day, and will totally wow your group.

More importantly it totally fufills your requirements of "Erudite".   If that doesn't fit your requirements please feel free to be more specific.

*Also, I'd be glad to build you a second character once I recieve payment for that first one I gave you.
