Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous Baked Trickster Build

The logic here is pretty simple: stack as many dice and attacks as possible. Nothing accomplishes this quite like good old Motherless Vivisectionist (especially given the relatively high INT requirement for the skill gain). Good offense, good defense, synergistic spell-lists, 15d6 sneak, and enough feats to fit in the essentials. Beast Shape is taken to infuse party animal companions, because alchemists can.

Go with the staff for quite a while, since Flurry will be better than +1 from the focus and switch to a falchion once you have Improved Critical. You also probably want someone with Magic Fang so your natural attacks actually hit things.

  1. Can’t take weapon focus at the level stated because you don’t have proficiency in those weapons.

  2. The only way to have it is with the background that gives you weapon focus:scythe from the start. I can’t remember the exact background unfortunately.

    I started it that way, loose out on the +2 init. But hey..

  3. I’m not very far along (Level 6 now), but what I did was just take Slayer at level 5 so I had Martial Weapon proficiencies, then took Weapon Focus (I went falchion).

    I do have a concern about Dazzling Display and Shatter Defenses, though. As far as I can tell, those abilities wouldn’t even work for this build, since we dump stat Charisma and don’t raise Persuasion at all. I’m wondering if maybe the Trickster path enables those abilities through the Persuasion mythic path feats, and maybe they meant Persuasion instead of Perception? Perception does seem very good and useful, as well, but I’d give those up if Persuasion makes demoralize work automatically without a roll. Without those feats, the tanking aspect takes a huge hit, even if they did work, since you’d have to use a full action to trigger them rather than having them work automatically.

  4. Nevermind… While the demoralize abilities are likely a waste, you can’t get by without the Perception feats, because those unlock the extra crit feats. I’m not sure what feats I’ll take instead of those, but I wouldn’t have wanted those feats if I couldn’t get them to activate automatically anyway.
