Pathfinder Wrath of the Righteous: Saucerer Build

Pathfinder Wrath of the Righteous Saucerer Build

A sorcerer with some secret sauce to get her going. It’s your caster Lich, complete with a metric ton of spells, increased Difficulty Classes for both used schools of magic, ray criticals (crits), and whatever else you could dream of. Has a wide array of selective spells to use at all stages of the game, because having crowd control is a good mojo.

Other Pathfinder Wrath of the Righteous Guides:

Bolstered Siphon Life is devastating on crit and it can’t be saved on, so that’s one of your main tools for single target damage. Bolstered Battering Blast is also not too shabby.

New Arcana in order of taking: Level 4, 6, 8, 8, 9, 9.
