Purple Dragon Knight - How to use it?

TomRenethTomReneth Member Posts: 5
Hi,

I've been looking at the PDK and I'm honestly not sure how to effectively use this class. It doesn't seem a worthy replacement for the other warrior classes or prestige classes in any multiclass build, nor that strong on its own as a part of any particular builds.

I like the idea of prestige classes being limited to 5 levels and I love the whole group oriented warrior. Heck, the PDK abilities look like they'd be a perfect match thematically for a Blade style Bard, which will benefit from the martial aspects of the class. It just seems worse than just going with Fighter.

Am I blind? Are the PDK abilities better than they seem?

    The PDK class as it is, is pretty underwhelming
    One major issue is that most of the bonuses only last about one round

    Heroic Shield can actually be very good, however the PDK must constantly be using it/managing it for it to be useful

    The abilities that PDK get are pretty unique and with some tweaking it could be a competitive build, but if you're min/maxing then it's better to just go full fighter or take champion of torm levels

    That's too bad. That being said , I'm still going to go for Bard 15 / PDK 5. Not a powerbuild, but thematically fitting. More important in singleplayer IMO

    I think that is more like a roleplaying class, something like Harper Scout
