View Full Version : 3.5 Sorcerer Spell List

2009-07-04, 10:02 PM
I am creating a themed sorcerer. 3/4 of the spells on said spellcasters spell list are suppose to be force related. Meaning anything with force descriptor of course. Can you help me fill this list up?

PrC: Argent Savant

(Note: Cantrips not included, and of course some spells that are not force shall sneak in, they always do...)

Here is the current:
0Read Magic(PHB)
0Detect Magic(PHB)
0Ghost Sound(PHB)
1Magic Missle(PHB)
1Ghostly Tail(RotD)
1Benign Transposition(Not Force)
1Silent Image (Not Force)(PHB)
2Wings of Cover(RotD)
2Chain of Eyes(Not Force)(SPC)
2Ray of Stupidity(Not Force)(SPC)
2Invisibility(Not Force)(PHB)
3Mage Armor, Greater(SPC)
3Leomund's Tiny Hut(PHB)
3Chain Missle (SPC)
3Phantom Steed(Not Force)(PHB)
4Wings of Flurry(RotD)
4Otiluke’s Resilient Sphere(PHB)
4Orb of Force(CompA)
4Mirror Image, Greater(Not Force)(PHB2)
5Wall of Force(PHB)
5Sword of Deception(CompA)
5Bigby's Interposing Hnad(PHB)
5Arcane Fusion(Not Force)(CompM)
6Howling Chain(SPC)
6Bigby's Forceful Hand(PHB)
7Bigby's Grasping Hand(PHB)
7Teleport, Greater (Not Force)(PHB)
8Bigby's Clenched Fist(PHB)
8Otiluke’s Telekinetic Sphere(PHB)
8Arcane Fusion, Greater (Not Force)(CompM)
9Bigby’s Crushing Hand(PHB)
9Time Stop(PHB)

Any Feats that may improve this would be great too...

Any of these can be changed if reasoning is good

1Still Spell
3Silent Spell
6Improved Familiar (Air Elemental)
9Blade of Force (CompM)
12Invisible Needle (CompM)
15Rapid Metamagic
18Quicken Spell

Greater Missile Storm?

Blast of force? From the force domain in complete divine.
The whole Bigby's hand line and Repulsion.

-Resilient Sphere. Never leave home without it.
-Bigby Hands.
-Chain Missile.

The Argent Savant PrC is somewhat good, but loses one spellcasting level. Anyway, combine it with Arcane Thesis'd Wings of Flurry shenanigans. It deals respectable damage.

Blade of Force (http://realmshelps.dandello.net/cgi-bin/feats.pl?Blade_Of_Force,all) and Invisible Needle (http://realmshelps.dandello.net/cgi-bin/feats.pl?Invisible_Needle,all). They're not overly useful in and of themselves, but they'll increase your caster level with Force spells, which will be very useful for you.

Solo Sorcerer's Guide
This guide is pretty good advice. If you are too lazy to read, here's a saving tip: You don't want redundant spells in your Sorcerer spell list. Teleport does the same thing as greater teleport, with a miss chance often ignorable. The Bigby Hands are also pretty redundant. Go for versatility.

Otiluke Telekinetic Sphere is too high level for my tastes, keep the Resilient (it's a shame that 4th level spells are so wonderful, you can never have enough of them)

Forcecage is pretty potent, but awfully pricey for a Sorcerer. You want spells that you can cast many, many times a day. Some might say 'spam'.

Where is Greater Missile Storm?

Baldur's Gate? NWN?

I think it was introduced into DnD in the Spell Compendium though.

Either that or I'm thinking Chain Missiles.

Your advice is old and tired. Behold the new face of sorcerer optimization:
The New Superior Sorcerer's Guide (http://forums.gleemax.com/showthread.php?p=18692164) (with fanservice) and The CO Cabel's Guide to Enjoying Your Sorcerer (http://forums.gleemax.com/showthread.php?t=1184568)

This is not suppose to be optimization. this is suppose to be a completely specific sorcerer, who is redundant. The spell list won't really matter in game play as combat is not really existent, the game is almost 100% RP. Thus a build that is optimized for combat such as you are suggestion is not neededable. though some spells from these guides have snuck in of course.

Reworked for utility and usefulness to a point, more around what I would play if the game were to be unexplained and I did not know what to expect.
