in 3.5 I took a ape totem, 5 levels of druid and a prestige that gave me an animal companion boost, as well as more than one animal companion, at the sacrifice of the prestige not giving me spell levels.

And I was fine with that!

I would like to make another such build where my character's power resides in my animal companion(s) and what little druid spellpower I can must I use to buff it, ideally through a feat to make 30 foot share spell so I don't have to be near it ( not sure that exists in pathfinder ).

By powerful I mean most druid level to increase the animal companion table position. Adding character feats to amplify the animal companion, as well as the animal companion feats contribute to the said power.

Can you be more specific on what you want out of "most powerful?" – mxyzplk Sep 22 '13 at 3:06
not really. "table position?" Do you mean dps, or tanking, or... Making your animal companion "more powerful" is like asking for a build to make a "better fighter." It's completely arbitrary. At best you'll get some "well here's some general abilities to think about taking." There's pack druids that get bunches of companions, there's just going Summoner if you want the "butchest pet ever," there's actual companion archetypes from the new pets book Animal Archive... Improved Share Spells feat... etc. That's all I got for that general a req besides "read the books or something." – mxyzplk Sep 22 '13 at 13:35
I suspect by "table position" the OP means the table here: Animal Companions and an increase in which row is used – Rob Sep 24 '13 at 7:49
Why is this closed? 'Most powerful' seems pretty obvious, and it's not duplicating another answer. 'Most powerful' = largest attack bonii, damage, hp, etc. The best all-around animal companion possible in the game, as the only consideration of the character he's building. – Jack Lesnie Jun 26 '14 at 2:10
@thedarkwanderer It's been 2 years since the last edit, a couple months since your initial comment, and it's still closed. I'd say we have the community's answer. – Matthew Najmon Mar 1 at 21:09
