The fleshwarper from Lords of Madness uses grafting to modify and improve his familiar, though it becomes an aberration, not a golem. There’s also no cauldron in the art, though there are a lot of glasses and beakers. Probably not what you had in mind, but just to toss it out there. The art is Note the upgraded monkey familiar.

Maybe you mean Effigy Master from Complete Arcane? It is an arcane caster PrC (1) with wondrous item as requirement (2) where the character is as said "Fascinated by the animating force of life itself" (3), gains the class skill "Craft effigy" that allows it to create constructs (4) though there is no healing or cauldron involved. The art for the effigy ...

You are correct - you would not gain +1d6 Eldritch Blast As you yourself wrote, you are effectively a Warlock 11 for Eldritch Blast damage, and going up to effectively Warlock 12 does not increase it. But look on the bright side - your Fortitude and Reflex saves go up by 1! If you do not think you will get to warlock level 10 (effective level 13), ...

The Technomancer is a prestige class that advances the spellcasting progression of a different class. As such, it isn't a casting class itself. Not every prestige class that add levels of spellcasting (getting "+1 level of spellcasting" basically counts as having one more level in the casting class of your choice for determining several spellcasting-...

I basically see two ways to do this. The first is to go Charisma-based, knowing you’ll still probably need a fair amount of Intelligence and that death attack won’t be available until 13th. The second is to go Intelligence-based, and then rely on skill ranks and other bonuses to have decent Perform. Either way, to use poisons you are going to need the ...

I propose the following split personality: your character is friendly and helpful while visible but turns murderous when invisible. Then, combine a spell casting class (sorcerer?) with the rogue and assassin classes. In combat, use greater invisibility and sneak attack like crazy. The rogue class will give you all the perform skill ranks you need to be a ...

So I’m going to lay out a rather unusual build for a fairly unique character. It has an emphasis on Charisma and a subtle mysticism that increases vulnerabilities and windows of opportunity. The build ends up looking like this: \begin{array}{l} \text{RHD} & \text{RHD} & \text{RHD} & \text{LA} & \text{Paladin} & \text{Pal 2} & \text{...

Short version: no, but yes for extra arcana. Long version: It you were able to add your EK level to all your arcane spellcasting classes, it would have be worded explicitly as "adds his level to any levels in all arcane spellcasting class he possesses", but that is not the case. You have to choose one spellcasting class and stick to it. RAW it technically ...

No, for prestige classes whenever they advance an attribute it is solely the attribute of the class used to meet the prerequisites. In this case the "arcane spell casting class" would be the wizard, because the wizard was (presumably) the source of your third level spells. To clarify it further, it notes that "he adds his levels to any levels in AN ...
