My First question is if i play a half-elf wizaed and i want to crate a cloak of elevenkind would being a half-elf meet the requirment to create then if i wanted a tiger or an elemental version what would i need (Feats and level)
Half-elves have the "elven blood" racial trait, so they count as elves.
What do you mean "tiger or elemental versions"?

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.

So when do you think Bachmann will be saying she met a mother the previous night that had a son who got a blood transfusion using a gay guy's blood, and now the son is retardedly gay?
When she meets CJ's mom?

For the cloak:  You would have to have the feat Craft Wondrous Item, the spell Invisibility, and as far as the rules go, the quote is, "Elven Blood: For all effects related to race, a half-elf is considered an elf."

I don't know much about what all is out there in the splatbooks about alternative familiars.  The only thing I know of is that the feat Improved Familiar does allow for a small elemental familiar.  I have never personally seen anything allowing large animals to be familiars, only animal companions or cohorts.  Somebody else might be more educated than I, however.

Good luck.

ok thank you for the help
I think you could use this spell: Elemental Familiar. I found this spell in the old D&D archives. I have attached the link.
What it does it change the type of creature it is, but it will still has the shape of your previous familiar.

Now you want a familiar that is a tiger, but an elemental tiger, is that correct?

I'm not really sure how you would get a tiger as a familiar.
If I had to work with that idea I would look into the Arcane Hierophant Prestige Class.
You can be a Druid and Wizard, and your familiar merges with your animal companion to become a companion familiar.
Now if you could get enough levels to get the tiger animal companion, then cast the elemental familiar on your companion familiar, then it could essentially become an elemental companion familiar.

I'm just brainstorming here, so I'm not sure if its legal. But that is how I would get started coming up with a plan to get an elemental familiar.


thank you
