Pathfinder Wrath of the Righteous: Arcane Azata Build

Pathfinder Wrath of the Righteous Arcane Azata Build

Be warned: wizards are not friendly to new players. You have to know what you are doing with your spell list as it’s not feasible to list spell books for every stage of the game.

Starts as a control wizard and goes into the damage dealing business late (while adding even more control, because we can). Selective Grease, Web, and Shout are not subject to spell resistance and should carry you to Level 15, at which time you can utilize Arcane Trickster fully.

Other Pathfinder Wrath of the Righteous Guides:

Skipped Mythic Spell Penetration because elf has enough as is. Grabbed Enchantment instead. Cold was picked because Waterfall is a thing that exists. More damage for us.

The modus operandi in late-game is to cast Selective Sirocco and blast things with Chain Lightning. Selective Caustic Eruption does converted element damage but the damage over time is still acid, so we have three elements going at the same time, all triggering barrage. It’s not that much, but it adds up.

Elemental Focus is taken to boost Chain Lightning Difficulty Class as that’s the one in most need of it.
