    Also: I'd like to give it a feat prereq, but didn't find anything suitable so if anyone finds a general anti-caster defense feat like something that gives a +1 to all magic saves, it would be ideal.

    Mageslayer? Complete Arcane:
    (CArc p81)
    1. You receive a +1 bonus on Will saves.
    2. If you threaten a spellcaster, he/her cannot take the ‘cast defensively’ action.
    3. Your Caster level (if any) of all spell and spell-like abilities is reduced by 4.

    I considered that, but the mageslayers really aren't the flavor I'm going for.

    Remember the principle of spell resistance:

    SR = HD + (important part)

    I think you might want to rethink it for the earlier levels - at first level, you're granting non-functional SR, and at third level, you're granting 20% SR, to all intents and purposes.

    The 70% SR at 5th level does work, however.

    Lesser Minion the spell resistance is HD plus modifier. So at 5th level of this class and assuming its possible to enter after 5th a PC would have SR 25, which is nice, and maybe a bit overkill.

    I know the formula - sorry about the unclear post earlier.

    Aside from the spell resistance, I don't find this especially amazing. Your wide range of immunities might be useful, I guess, but they don't necessarily enhance what you can do.

    I'd be tempted to offer something that helps you work as part of a team - maybe a way to force enemy spellcasters to target you with their spells?

    I posted a link to the thread on the IRC, and one of the other issues pointed out was that your capstone is not brilliant - 70% SR sounds good on paper, but it isn't that amazing, especially considering that a lot of spellcasters are better at beating spell resistances than their CRs might indicate.

    It's a pure defence class in a system where defence is a poor choice and expert (Factotum has SLAs) is just about the only non-caster class that can qualify.

    It's functional but lacks flavor. Warforged Juggernaut is basically the same thing except a lot cooler.

    I might also suggest condensing the class features into less parts. For example, you could have one class feature called Shielded of Spell which grants +1 to AC and saves against spells per level, and spell resistance equal to HD + 3 per level.

    I integrated some stuff into Shielded of Spell. I also gave them the ability to transfer their shielded of spell to allies. Better now?
