Hello, my question is about hybriding and multiclassing. If a player makes a hybrid Wizard/Bard, can they only multiclass once or twice because they are a bard? Would appreciate any feedback.
Your friend is definitely not an optimizer! You'll find that such an approach will quickly drop the chracter "behind" the other PCs of equal level. But if your friend has fun with it, nothing else matters.
I appreciate the answer, for my friend is planning on a Genasi werewolf/vampire/wizard/bard, along with being able to use every genasi element available, so this is a good reference thanks!
Sorc/wizard could make for a decent striker depending on his feat choice.
I don't think genasai can be a vampire, as they are elemental and bloodline requires you to be a natural creature. Does the werewolf theme also share this restriction?Sorc/wizard could make for a decent striker depending on his feat choice.
The vampire class isn't terrible, Its just not particularly good either.Good advice Zathris, and I find it a bit odd that re-fluffing is looked down upon. Does the regeneration gained by the vampire mc help to make up for the lost surges, or do you find it too miniscule to make a difference?
One thing to remember about character op is that they are there to make optimal characters. If you have a cool idea for a hybrid that you're trying to make passable they will not usually be very helpful.

Does the regeneration gained by the vampire mc help to make up for the lost surges, or do you find it too miniscule to make a difference?No, it really is terrible. You can make it not-awful by taking a couple of other feats based on your base classes (Martial and Divine Vampire are good), but it really is terrible. Reducing your surges to 2 is far too big a cost when you don't get surges as an encounter resource the wayt he pure-class Vamp does. And even then, they're terrible, because they don't have any focus on their role, and are accordingly, not up to the standard of other strikers.If you want to be a vampire, there are mechanical ways that aren't terrible (although, Vampire Heritage and Vryloka are not particularly good either), but the best way would be to role play it...
