Hi guys! I'm hoping for some input on my build idea.
So I'm thinking, nine levels shadow dancer, then dual to mage. Should have thief stuff back by end of SoD. 65 points in find trap, the rest split between HiS and MS. With potion of perception, can reach 100 find traps, and use knock on locks. Would have x3 BS, and still able to reach lvl 31 mage. Role would be scouting ahead, getting rid of traps, scoping out the enemy before engaging in the normal mage-destroys-all activities. Would keep a party of 4 or less, likely.
Are there other ways to boost find trap than potion of perception, that could allow more points to go into HiS/MS?
Would it be worth it to take the tenth thief level, even though wouldn't get thief back until early SoA?
Or is it honestly better to stick with shadow dancer and wait for UAI in order to use wands/scrolls? How soon in SoA would a thief realistically hope to get UAI?
Any cool and awesome insights I'm simply missing?
My thanks to the Counsel for hearing my petition!
