Dawnbringer Class

I've put together a build that is sort of a paladin with an emphasis on offernsive, take it to the enemy powers (particularly the Fighting Style bonus powers). He has Lay on Hands and some healing spells but he gains benefits when fighting weapon plus shield or two-handed weapon.

 

Dawnbringer

Level limit 14

Hit Die d6

Prime Requisite Wis

Requiremets Str9

HD1 Fighter2 Divine 1  

Give up Unrestricted  Weapons (1 power) and Broad (2 powers) weapons for a total of three bonus powers from weaon trade-offs.
Narrow Weapons chosen: Swords and Daggers, Spears/Pole Arms
Give up Two Weapon Fighting Style for one power
Give up Missile Bonus Damage for one power


500XP for HD +1000XP for Fighter +250XP for Divine = 1750XP+750XP for Fighter trade-offs = 2500XP

 

Save as Fighter, Use Fighter magic weapons. HP per level after 9th + 2.

Bonus Powers: Divine Blessing, Divine Health, Fighting Style: Two-Handed Weapon, Fighting Style: Weapon and Shield Lay on Hands

Spells
1st Level Cure Light Wounds, Detect Evil, Light, Protection from Evil, Remove Fear
2nd level Bless, Delay Poison, Holy Chant, Resist Fire, Spiritual Weapon

5th Level Dispel Evil, Flame Strike, Quest, Restore Life and Limb, Sword of Fire

 

Any input on names for each level is welcome, though I could always poach the Paladin nam es from the Player's Companion. Also I'm not too sure on Wis as a Prime Requisite.

Fun class. Very much in line with the sort of class I like to play.

I would drop spiritual weapon and replace it with Swift Sword. Otherwise, cool.

That's a great suggestion but I think I'll stick with Spiritual Weapon.

Here's the latest.  I dropped two of the fighting styles as bonus powers and moved them into the Class Proficiencies list.  This let me take Apostasy twice, giving the class 8 more spells.  I gave each class level a name.  I'd appreciate any input on that; I'm not married to the level titles.
