    I will have to look into this for the warlock PC in my game. It seems a bit powerful, but maybe...

    As far as a warlock being a poor HTH warrior, I'll again point out the awesome power of the fey feats for a warlock... Wow, does that build a tank (until some big-damage bad guy gets a crit of course. That hurts...)

    The real abuse would be a gestalt Fighter/Warlock with Eldritch Glaive.

    You can touch my eldritch balls when you pry them out of my cold, dead fingers. HA!

    I think they are in complete mage (either that or PHBII). By 9th level a human would get 6 spells a day (one 5th level!) a few misc bonuses, and DR 5/cold iron that stacks with a warlock's DR. The warlock in my game is walking around with DR 6/cold iron I believe (level 7).

    DR is not the same as AC. Very powerful against mooks. Less powerful against non-mooks or 3x crits. But DR helps a LOT. The warlock is the only one to make it to level 7. Everyone else died or retired.

    They are a bit overpowered (maybe a lot from levels 6 to 12 or so) but eat up all of your feats.

    Eldritch Glaive is a Greater Invoc, IIRC.

    I believe that by RAW, the Warlock only receives 4 DR from the feats--specifically, Fey Skin gives 1 DR for each feat with Fey Blood as a prerequisite (but not Fey Blood itself) To get 5, you must be counting Fey Blood, but it doesn't have Fey Blood as a prerequisite. If you think the Fey feats are a good DR combo, try the Abyssal heritor feats from FCI--there's one that gives 1 DR for each Abyssal Heritor feat and another that gives +1 natural armour, and +1 more for every two Abyssal Heritor feats, plus another that gives a +1 insight bonus to one type of thing for every two Abyssal Heritor feats, etc.

    Fiendish Codex I. It's not just for Warlocks! (I was playing in a game with feats every level, and I was going to make some kind of scrapper with all the FCI feats, but I didn't roll well enough to qualify for all of them, so I'm running a Warlock with the Fey feats and hopefully lots and lots of Extra Invocations)

    Well, the Fey skin feat is 1+1 per feat you have with fey blood as a prereq. So that gets you to +5 with the other 3 feats.

    Humm, the Abyssal horror sounds pretty huge, but getting Confusion, Dimension Door, SNA V, Charm Monster, Deep Slumber and Disguise self (each 1/day) isn't too shabby.
