I need to have a decent healer but I hate just sitting there watching the red bars. I need action: someone who can heal from the front lines.
The Life Knife
Level 20 Neutral Good Halfling Female
(20 Favored Soul)
Goals of this build:
- Good healing ability
- Decent Blade Barrier
- Enough HP and DPS to stand in front, even if not overpoweringly so
This is my fourth attempt at a Favored Soul. None of my previous efforts (an evil caster that only selected necromantic spells, an overly-ambitious ranged/melee/healing/caster, and a mostly meleer) have proven to be long-term viable.
This time I am scaling way back: pretty good healing, yes, but the fighting is so-so and the offensive casting is lacking altogether (other than BB of course).
(32 Point) (Level 1) (Level 20) --------------------------------------------- Strength 14 20 Dexterity 10 12 Constitution 16 16 Intelligence 9 10 Wisdom 14 16 Charisma 13 18 Tomes Used ----------- +1 Tome of Intelligence used at level 4 +1 Tome of Strength used at level 4
This is one class that would really benefit from the extra four points available through TR. But I am SO over TRs, at least until there is more high-level content. +2 Tomes for CHA or (especially) CON would be pretty helpful here.
Hit Points: 507: 140(FvS) +120(CON) +30(vit) +60(CON item) +22(Tgh) +30(GFL) +60 (Enh) +45(greensteel) Spell Points: 2715: 1725(FvS) +80(CHA)+60(CHA item) +150 (Enh) +300(greensteel) +400(archmagi) BAB: 15: 20 with divine favor Fortitude: 24: 16 +3(con item) +5(resist item) Reflex: 19: 14 +5(resist item) Will: 24: 16 +3(wis item) +5(resist item)
Hit points are fine, and spell points seem pretty good. The saves kind of scare me. They are much lower than I expected. I wonder if I am missing something?

Three melee related feats and a bunch of healing/party support. No room for spell pen or THF 🙁

Laser focus. I would do without the Jump and Halfling Dex but I need to spend the points on something.
Anything I missed? Anything I could improve? I always make at least one major error when I do one of these…
