Cavalier build ideas

Post by Gazfrost » Fri Mar 26, 2021 3:58 am

I seen a few Cavaliers charging around, I must say I'm impressed and would like to make one myself.

I know of one Build that one guy is doing and that's a Fighter 15/ Cavalier 10/ and 5 Loremaster.
Nice AB and the ability to have UMD with good chance of saving wand charges is a great idea.
Anyone else got Ideas for a Cavalier build?

I had an idea to stack cavalier onto a earthkin defender for unmounted spirited charge. Yea cannot move fast in defensive stance but a burst of speed in combat could have its advantages

I once saw an archer character in Skal using a cavalier/archer ranger. I don't know how he got that to work but the damage from his bow really surprised me.
