I'm currently in a group composed of a warlock, seeker, ranger, bard, and a psion. I've decided to play a pixie, but can't seem too choose a class for the little bugger. I'm not asking for builds or character designs, just some ideas as to what class I should pick, and why. Thanks all!
Ranged Beast Master Ranged with a Raptor pet you ride.
Beast form Druid with your form being something small that flies and is vicious, like a flying squirrel.
Monk. Just cuz.
I played a Pixie Brawling Fighter.
Wrestled a Brown bear and won. Good times.
I'm trying to go for fun *and* optimal. Sticking with classes that are in line with pixie stat bonuses would be best, but no critcal. I'd like to pick something that allows interesting roleplaying situations in addition to good combat ability.
People will think you're just some kind of oversized mosquito.
During the day you sleep in your tiny little coffin that your party members have to carry around. Of course, if you irritate them, they'll just put rocks on top of it to keep you from getting out.
Pixies are good for a whole bunch of things:
Rogue, thief, wizard, warlock (fey pact in particular), monk, fighter (pixie brawler MC monk for master of the fist. Fly up to people, grab them by their nostrils and start punching them in the eyes with what, at paragon when you take Shock Trooper as your PP, will amount to a fullblade), warlord (lazy), Executioner, druid, ranged ranger (though weapon choice screws you a bit here) etc etc etc. There are not that many classes which Pixies are truly bad at.
An update: it seems we've lost our bard, so we're currently leaderless. I'll have to fill that slot, so the question becomes: what leader class should my pixie take?
Be a warlord. stand on someone's head and bellow orders to your subordinates *ahem* allies.
It depends on what you want to play, if you are looking for possible effectiveness then here:
If it was me I’d go Paladin, Paladin (Cavalier), Swordmage, or Paladin (Blackguard)
Your party is missing a leader and a defender. So I would go with either a healing focused chaladin or a leader of some sort.
Bard is the obvious choice for a leader, but a melee cleric, warlord, artificer, or shaman (probably eagle) could all work. I would lean towards valorous bard or eagle shaman since the party lacks a defender so your allies will be taking some hits, but the shaman's spirit could negate that some and won't mind starting with a 16 wisdom if you pick lazy powers. Eagle shamans help with classes with RBAs and you have a bunch of classes that normally have RBAs.
You've brought back some funny and upsetting memories.
had a friend who played a pixie rogue. He played it mischievous with a streak of nasty. At first it was a lot of fun watching this little pixie trying to do damage with his two 1d2 daggers. But in the end, he pissed off every party member we eventually "captured" him in a sealable glass vase (think of catching fireflies as a kid) only problem was we "forgot" to put air holes in it .
