  • Regardless of what focus you pick, go with the staff until Level 11.
  • I’d start Lawful Good (LG), make every evil decision under the sun to roleplay the Lich thing, and use an Atonement Scroll if you ever want to use Divine Grace. Background doesn’t really matter; just pick whatever you feel is appropriate.
  • Does somewhere around 400-500 damage per round (DPR) by teens, not counting Attacks of Opportunity (AoO). Pretty good.

* Any lawful will do, but you will miss out on bestow grace if you are not Lawful Good. Lawful Evil is more roleplaying-appropriate, though.

** Make sure you have this at 5 by the time you are Level 5.
*** Can be of any Draconic bloodline, but the small amount of resistance you get from it is most beneficial as acid. We don’t care about the spell damage part.

* Pick whatever weapon you fancy. Staves will get an extra attack from Flurry, but it’s up to preference. I chose falchion for a blind run just because the threat range is way too good to pass up.

* Reasoning is simple: first, undead can’t be enlarged (at least not easily). Second, the melee line will already be quite packed in most parties already. Since his STR is +0, toss him a heavy crossbow and an amulet from the Heart of Stone in Wintersun.
** 30 rounds of free Dirge and some spells is great. Skeleton Wisdom and INT are weak so it wouldn’t even be able to cast Cleric, Inquisitor, or Magus spells. Boo.
