Pathfinder Wrath of the Righteous: Anointed Knight Build

A more or less classic Anointed Knight, except it takes Monk and Archmage Armour to scale Armour Class (AC). Can’t really be helped, since the game wants us to. (If only there was a Mythic Armour focus that would scale it instead.)

Other Pathfinder Wrath of the Righteous Guides:

Gets all the important Paladin stuff, plus some Angel goodies, and is tailor-made to make everything evil suffer. Stacks so much Attack Bonus (AB) it’s actually feasible to use Power Attack without being crippled by it. That AB also makes it easy to skip the Shatter Defenses line; someone will be able to toss Greater Invisibility on us and that’s good enough.
