Hello, i'm new to this community, and fairly new to DnD. So i need some help. I have a wizard, and I'm almost content with it, but i very interested in prestige classes. All of the wizard type prestige classes ive seen, havent really impressed me much. So if you guys have any suggestions, or preferences ,plz tell.

Im a level 5 wizard... and i know that Archmage is good...but its quite a ways away.

Elementalist is a fun Prestige class.

Elemental Savant is what I meant...oops.

Wow, um. Have you looked at the Complete Arcane source book? It's probably your best friend right now.

Fate Spinner is a personal favorite.

If the Prestige Classes in Complete Arcane don't impress you, then you may just be better off going straight wizard.

As others have said, check Complete Arcane.

Though I'll agree with you. I've set to see a full-caster arcane PrC that I really like.

What kind of flavor are you going with for your Wizard?

im a big fan of lore master if you meet the prereqs. it sounds cheesy but read it!!!! you still go up in spell levels you get the equivilent to bardic knowlidge,and every other level you get a secret,,which is anything from a bonus feat to upping your attrubutes a couple of points or skills. plus greater lore,,is bad ass

Loremaster is fun. >.> If I recall correctly, they also have a better BAB progression than normal wizards, but I could be thinking of something else.

The secrets come in handy.

I <3 wild mage.
8th-Oct-2005 06:06 pm (UTC) - Complete Arcane as well...
...its a bit of a ways a way, but my favourite recent spellcasting character was a wizard who went with geometer, and then into Initiatie of the Sevenfold Viel. its a ways away but is so much damn fun.

Remind me, Geometers specialize in glyph spells, don't they?

If your going for pure spellcasting prowess (and don't mind being a divine caster for a bit), think about the Mystic Theurge. It is one of the most powerful prestige classes in the game if you stick to it.

Except for the hit to caster level.

Feat: Practiced Spellcasting/er (don't remember the end)

Puts a large bandaid on that bullet wound.

In theory, yeah. Look at all those spells you get!

OTOH, you suffer from MAD, your caster level is at best 3 lower than a single-classed caster, meaning you have a harder time making spell resistance checks, and you don't get the highest level spells. Those you do get, you get much later.

Besides, the fundamental unit of currency in a D&D game is actions per round. Having a few extra options, especially in anything close to a balanced party, doesn't really offer that much power.

My suggestion: If you're fairly new to D&D, I'd suggest just sticking with the wizard as is first. It's usually a good idea to get a good feel for the base class before you start playing with prestige classes.
