So I really like battlemages. I know the swordmage fits well into the mold but I want to run with a sorcerer, thier flavor and battle tactics lean heavily toward my play style. Are there any feats that would aid this? I know that I can use the Arcane Implement Proficiency, would it work to name a heavy blade such as a full blade, a glaive, or a similar weapon since the Swordmage can name those? I also want to use armor, at least chainmail at some point.
So im looking for assistance for what path to take, I'm leaning towards either Dragon or elementalist. I'm not dedicated to making melee basics so much if its not possible but if it is that would fit the motiff very well.
Also looking for some race assistance. willing to play about anything but i would rather not play an elf or a dragonborn (I know it works great).
