    *Not allowed to play a Warpriest with Favored Weapon(Dart)
    **Not allowed to play a Warpriest with Favored Weapon(Javalin)
    ***Favored Weapon(Blowgun) is right out.
    ****I may not make a dip into Warblade as a Warpriest in 3.PF just for Weapon Aptitude
    *****If playing 3.PF, I may not make a Vital Strike build using Warpriest and Artificer any means of reliable extra standard actions

    Warpriest overwrites the damage of weapons they use. Blowguns normally deal 1 damage. A level 20 Medium-sized Warpriest replaces this with 2d8 damage. A Large level 20 Warpriest gets 3d8 instead. It's not so much that it's OP, as much as it is the fact that you are replacing minuscule damage with some fairly large numbers. It gets silly, dealing 2d8 damage with Blowguns.

    Vital Strike, meanwhile, is a feat chain that eats up 3 feats. As a standard action, it lets you use a multiple of your regular weapon damage, based on the number of feats in the chain you get. Which Warpriest overwrites. If you get 15 levels in Warpriest, this means that your weapon damage is 2d6, with 5 levels for other stuff. So, at the end, you get a Standard Action that deals four times your weapon damage, plus whatever you add to a single attack. Which means 8d6 damage as a standard action, all day long.

    And you do it with any weapon you have Weapon Focus in, which Warblade lets you swap each day. So 8d6 Blowguns one day, 8d6 Scythes the next. Oh, and becoming Large boosts this to 12d6. Optimal? No, but packing over 20d6 damage on a crit standard action is rather silly.

    Oh, Warpriests also have Bard spell slot progression with the Cleric list. Which makes 3.PF even more silly for them, because they get all those Cleric spells from 3.5. They also get some pretty strong healing, with 7d6 self healing as a Swift Action at level 20. Level 15, meanwhile, is 5d6. Uses per day is 1/2 level + Wis mod, with the ability to use 2 uses at level 4 to apply it to a 30 ft. radius, as well as the ability to expend one use of it to Quicken a spell.

    Vital Strike is actually one of the better routes for Warpriest 20, as they only get 3/4 BAB but get to count as full BAB for feats, which is how they qualify for the last stage of Vital Strike, with a bonus Combat/Fighter feat every 3 levels. They also count Warpriest levels as Fighter levels for feat prerequisites.

    Now, I'm not saying that Warpriest, or Vital Strike itself, is absolutely amazing, but I think it looks really good and is an excellent class for Vital Strike due to a BAB deficiency and prerequisite bypasses that make Full Attack less of a competition. It also has a damage boost feature that clearly stacks with Vital Strike and makes some weapons hilariously useful. Like Blowguns suddenly dealing 2d8 damage because a Warpriest 20 decided to pick Weapon Focus(Blowgun)
    My most liked class, thematically, is the Artificer. Make free items! (fail by RAW to)Hold up the setting! Have access to every magic item...
    My most liked class, mechanically, is the Bard. I sing the enemy to death! (at level 21)I talk you into a suicidal fanatic! I need to cheese rules that make me sing as I fight or talk to get things done...

    I prefer t2 over anything else, because t2 lets you become anything. I think Psionics is more versatile than magic.

    That reminds me...

    *No, I may not play a Warforged Warlock/Warblade/War Mind, no matter how unoptimal it is.

    That build is really unoptimal. Playable, but not that much.

    That's obviously not the point though, and it's probably possible rules-wise.

    Too much Nevar Enuff Dragon. I just tabbed over to D&D tools and searched for Dragon, then typed out every class with Dragon in the name. Between Draconomicon, Dragonlance, Dragon Magic, Dragons of Faerun, Races of the Dragon and Dragon Compendium, there's a lot of Dragon stuff to go around. Of those, two aren't actually dragon-focused, but that's still four dragon-devoted sourcebooks I could find at a casual glance.

    Grab an Amoonguss with Rage Powder and have it set up to be as tanky as possible, with Giga Drain as one of the other moves. Rage Powder will force enemies to target it with everything they use that can target it, and Giga Drain is generally good for tanky pokemon without other recovery options. Although Chesto Berry+Rest can be done for a full recover, it's somewhat wasteful in that you might not be needing it if the opponent doesn't attack that turn, while Giga Drain is fairly safely spamable due to dealing damage. Synthesis and Ingrain are also on the move pool, so it can work out that way as well.

    Protect, Substitute, Sleep Talk and Rest are on the TM list for Amoonguss, so you can do some stuff with that. Swagger, Double Team and Attract are on the TM list for Amoonguss, so you can pull some nasty stuff with being purely a target, though physical sweepers make Swagger a bit less of a good pick.

    I personally think that Giga Drain, Ingrain, Substitute and Rage Powder would be a good move set, if you are purely focused on making a target to buy Smeargle time to pull the 2 turn kills. A good thing to do with the remaining two Smeargle move slots is Belly Drum and Baton Pass, so that you can pass over full Attack to another pokemon on your team for the second turn, allowing you to swap to a wall with a physical life drain move to be an improvised Sweeper, with Smeargle in the back ready to pull the Lock On OHKO combo if they go down.

    Leech Life is the best physical HP stealing move in gen 7, which is found on another Rage Powder pokemon besides Amoonguss. Namely, Parasect, which is a much worse wall due to weaknesses and is really bad due to low speed. As well as actually having rather bad defences. 4x weakness to Fire is... bad. Buzzwole is a workable physical tank, but melts under Special Attacks. Although it'll obliterate anything it hits, given an 80 base power move and maximum attack bonuses.

    Now I want to put together a full team comp and go to a Pokemon-centric forum to critique the doubles strategy applicable to the setup I'm describing here... It's utter scum, but it seems like it'd be a massive pain to put down.

    Oh, please, that Amoonguss tank is nothing compared to Mega Slowbro stall. The real nastiness is being a proper wall in Doubles and Triples. Grab a Blissy or Audino as a healer for Triples and you get a lot of stalling done, though. Do note that Mega Slowbro is banned from Anything Goes because a perfectly set up Mega Slowbro is fundamentally impossible for the vast majority of teams to beat. They just get PP stalled.

    **Just because you can make a build even more optimized doesn't mean that I'm allowing your Half-Orc Spirit Lion Totem Streetfighter Barbarian with Leap Attack and Shock Trooper.

    Spoiler: Context
    Show
    Said build is quite optimized. Normally in D&D, you can only attack once while charging, but the Spirit Lion Totem alternate class feature removes this limit. Leap Attack greatly increases the damage from Power Attack, and Shock Trooper allows you to assign the attack roll penalty from Power Attacking to your Armor Class instead. Orcs and Half-Orcs can get the Reckless Charge feat, which increases charging damage even more, and the Streetfighter alternate class feature gives even more good things for a charger.

    However, there are far more optimized builds in D&D, such as War Hulk + Hulking Hurler, which can get 1000d6 damage easily(for reference, the minimum damage is high enough to smear a CR 20 Tarrasque across the floor).

    Casters are even worse - decent "gish" builds that can cast 9th-level spells and have 4+ attacks per round at level 20 can kill a Hecatoncheires solo - which according to the CR system is 237 times stronger than the gish. Granted, Hecatoncherires are very over-CRed, but still...

    Kobolds can take the Dragonwrought feat, which is broken in so many ways I don't even know all of them. As for Commoners, there's a flaw called Chicken-Infested that only they can take. Optimizers have taken advantage of this flaw to generate infinite chickens, though. In one round(which equals six seconds).

    ***A Druid with 9 or less Wis is an exception. You don't get to play it, even though you do have class features you can use. Primarily because the last time you did, you still outclassed everyone other than the Cleric.
    My most liked class, thematically, is the Artificer. Make free items! (fail by RAW to)Hold up the setting! Have access to every magic item...
    My most liked class, mechanically, is the Bard. I sing the enemy to death! (at level 21)I talk you into a suicidal fanatic! I need to cheese rules that make me sing as I fight or talk to get things done...

    I prefer t2 over anything else, because t2 lets you become anything. I think Psionics is more versatile than magic.

    we really don't have the same limit. due to being in frequent contact with cybernetics and augmented humans, my doc's medikit actually had a monkey wrench and a soldering iron in there! the yoyo, the spare cigar box, and the handcuffs, however had no place in there, but i was out of room in my backpack.

    actually, it could be drunk and was its secondary use: helped force a young kid back to sanity. it's kept in between a rubber mallet and morphine in the medikit. regarding the rude gestures, i got that banned too when i played a cleric.

    (if i wasn't such a good medic, i'd probably have been banned that role by now...)

    well, you try to be the medic in a team with a 13 year old bullet-magnet! i swear, that girl got torn to pieces. partly because her player knew how to play a rebellious teenager, partly because he had tremendously bad rolls. we ended up teaching his character how to use a sniper rifle. didn't protect his character too much from explosives or mental trauma, though.

    ... and at least i only gave that character moonshine and morphine. the face of the group let her try lsd, cocaine (imagine a rabid squirrel with a gun), extasy (said rabid squirrel with hugs), and marijuana (slightly less rabid squirrel with a gun).

    we do now have a group rule never to play teenagers or children anymore. not because it's icky, but because it's a hassle to have an underage character go wherever the rest of the team go (brothels, dive bars, gun shops, jailbreaks...) plus it calls undue attention to a group.

    rereading the above, seems like our universe tends to breed pragmatic sociopathy.

    I could totally make medical use of the three extra items. But yeah, there isn't usually much in the way of cybernetics in the games I play. My doctor with the duct tape is cybernetics-enhanced, but still needs about another seven level ups to be able to work with them. Which really means there needs to be more GMs willing to run Shadowrun campaigns for me to join, so as I can play with cyberware more often.

    *** may not try to continue it no matter what to "see who is the Sue-iest Space Marine of them all."
    **** May not then go up to the winner and shout "HERESY!" and execute them for being a Mary Sue heretic.
