    Default Help designing a goblin character

    Hello fellow nerds!

    I came upon as task to design, a class prefably a healer for D&D 3,5


    here is a our team
    barbarian/Blackguard
    Rogue/wizard/trickster
    ranger/ some ranger prestige class

    as you can see our team is very chaotic, and quite violent!

    so I did not wan't to make the standard neutral good pelor cleric

    then I thought back to the orcs from Warhammer, they where quite chaotic and had goblin healers!

    So I was wondering if you could help me make a sorta goblin healer.
    I though about going Spirit shaman or Cleric, obviously. but pretty blank on prestige classes. I wan't him to be sort of a savage guy. With a very tribal belief!

    I haven't really decide on anything, so the only requirements are the goblin race and could be use as a healer!

    Any thoughts?

    You could choose whichever class you like and would fit into the group, and just buy a wanfd of cure light wounds. This wand costs 15 times what a potion costs (750gp instead of 50gp), but can be used 50 times, by anyone with either cure light wounds in their spell list (ranger) or someone with UMD trained (Rogue). Dedicated healers aren't as crucial in a fight as people make them out to be.

    Yea i know about the wand, but its also because it would be badass to play something like a goblin shaman, or some tribal sage

    A cleric can be a good healer, and very savage too. There are some good cleric handbooks out there for inspiration, but what level are you going for?

    Druids seems very nice, indeed

    any thoughts on a prestige class and a Deity if I made a druid?

    Maglubiyet is the chief deity of the goblinoids, his domains are planning, destruction, evil, and trickery. His favored weapon is the battleaxe.

    Of the domains listed, trickery is really quite good, while planning and destruction are not bad. Planning grants you "Extend Spell" which is a pre-requisite for persist spell through divine metamagic. Destruction grants a smite attack.

    Just go straight cleric; it's one of the absolutely most versatile classes in the game. There are PrC's taken to extend the number of domains, but a well-made cleric is pretty awsome all by itself.

    Not sure there are any goblin specific. Orcs yes, there are. The goblinoids just don't get enough love....

    The only Goblin specific PrC which I'm aware of is Stonedeath Assassin, which is probably not what you are looking for.

    The PrC options vary quite a but depending upon whether you take Druid or Cleric.

    Most of the obvious options for wild divine PrCs require good alignment. Is this an issue ?

    If so that just leaves the generic ones. These do things like:
    • Add a domain
    • Improve turning/rebuking
    • Improve Wild Shape
    • Improve Animal Companions etc.


    What do you want the PrC to do for you ?

    Consider a 5' radius blast: this affects 4 squares which have a circumference of 40' Actually it's worse than that.

    The hexer, from masters of the wild, is full casting full bab prestige class for monstrous races. Class abilities revolve around mostly and evil eye ability.

    I second the goblin druid, though.

    I had one in a goblinoid campaign. He rode around on a dire bat and hurled fire and lightning bolts at his enemies.

    good is proberly not the best thing seeing i would be the only one in the party then.

    Oracle could be really nice

    I have seen the seer?
    but, it requires some tweaking.
    seeing we play 3,5

    My GM said wildernes lore will be okay if I take know nature insted
    and lightning bolt could be call lightning
    then just need 10 ranks knowledge arcana. was thinking of just taking 1 bard level later?

    Thoughts?

    Wilderness Lore became Knowledge(Nature) in the revision of 3.0 known as 3.5

    You could take a orc shaman type prestige class and see if your DM will refluff/retool it for goblins.

    Having checked: You're right, so the OP's DM made the wrong call.
