Yay for PHB2 being available now. How about allowing the Duskblade? He'd my favorite, but I've seen a lot of discussion about him being a bit over powered.
Psiwar is a buff-up combatant, like a Cleric. Duskblade is more like a Rogue or maybe a Barbarian in that it specialises in hitting for a lot of damage.stonegod said:I haven't seen these really in play all that much. PsiWar would be an appropriate comparison, but I think PsiWar comes off weaker by comparison.
Yeah, anything outside of the specific list given in the PHII would have to be proposed specifically to add to the Duskblade list (after being proposed and accepted normally) and is unlikely to get a 'yes' from me. The Duskblade has a restricted list of spells but better BAB and specials than an Eldritch Knight, and I think it should stay that way.EternalSword said:Speaking as someone who plays a Duskblade in a home campaign, they are balanced with most spells outside of PHB and PHBII that are balanced in the hands of a decently built multiclass gish. I've been using lesser sonic orb for my projectile, and that hasn't been a problem, although we house-ruled SR back onto the orb spells. Do keep them away from save-or-dies, with the amount of slots they get and their BaB, anything like that is too strong. Personally, things outside of PHB I/II should probably have to be researched or otherwise acquired ingame. You might want to think carefully about sonic shield, though.
