View Full Version : Divination Wizard (Tips?)

2009-09-30, 10:14 PM
Hey guys, so, im thinking of creating this awesome character. I want it to be a divination Wizard, but I haven't got many ideas on good spells for a Wizard (since I never got to high levels with any classes anyway). Ideas? :smallsmile:

I've always found divination to be a low power, laid back school to specialize in, so it's great if you're a relaxed player more interested in the story than the rolls... That said, things get interesting around 5th circle spells when your Divination Wizard can start communicating with different planes :smallbiggrin:

Prying Eyes is a good spell if nobody wants to go scout out dangerous territory, and Contact Other Plane (as I mentioned) can shake things up a bit. Rary's Telepathic Bond is good if you have to split the party (never split the party...).

Do you want to play with existing divination spells or are you looking to homebrew new ones to use?

Well, I was thinking about using existing ones, but I don't see a problem with homebrewing :D.

Actualy I had this little idea for a 2 circle spell, to be called Voreenus Lesser Vision. It's a spell designed to make the caster able to foresee the next few seconds, making him able to prepare himself. Usual uses would include: seeing if the ogre will break the door, foresee a foe's next hit (thus +1 circunstancial bonus to AC) or knowing if the kobold will notice the hidden ally.

I can't really post it right now but I'll do it as soon as possible.

What books are allowed? If I remember Logic Ninja's "Being Batman" guide correctly the diviner really becomes a powerhouse if you use a few magic-related splatbooks, because you only give up one school (and, among other things, can thus go Red Wizard or Incantatrix without being too restricted in your options).

Hmmm, all books.
