comment How to build a knight commander?
@eimyr I have added to the explanation of why it is ideal to take non-initiating class levels first; is this clear to you? I’m not sure I’ve been clear on that point.

comment Is there a class in D&D 3.5e similar to the 4e warden?
@Dorian I do, and considered them, and the totemist might be a solid option if melee ability and partial shapeshifting were the only aspects of the warden that were desired. But the warden also had a strong elemental theme and fulfilled the role of defender, with potent nearby-battlefield-control effects; the totemist would be a striker in 4e parlance, just delivering the hurt. As such, I favored shapeshifter druid over totemist. But swapping druid for totemist definitely could work here, and totemist likes a barbarian dip even more than druid does.

comment Deflection bonus from possession?
I see nothing in the fiend of possession text that suggests that it gains a deflection bonus to AC, which implies I misunderstood you when I edited this. Do you mean that you have a fiend of possession that happens to have a deflection bonus to AC, or did I miss a deflection bonus to AC in the fiend of possession description, or what?

comment What do I do about a player with the half-celestial template turning non-Good?
@Bobson yeah, probably. When alignment changes is pretty much entirely up to the DM.

comment How to gain Turn Undead class feature without taking a cleric or paladin level?
@eimyr You are correct, but whoever is responsible for deciding these things is wrong to use those rules. They’re awful, and very rarely used (because they’re awful). Also, 3.0 is pretty much entirely a bad call; 3.0 had a lot of bad ideas that were really tightened up in 3.5 and there’s basically no reason to use 3.0.

What difference does having a base class vs. a prestige class make?

comment How to build a knight commander?
@eimyr Actually, correction: you can’t take other class levels before paladin levels, strictly speaking. Paladins have a special multiclass rule that prevents this. It’s an awful rule that is rarely enforced, but it does exist.

@eimyr You can take crusader levels first, but I recommend just going straight crusader if you do that. Paladin levels first takes advantage of the way initiator levels work for multiclass characters: because you get way more maneuvers at 1st than you do at later levels, it’s best to take other class levels first so your first level happens at higher Initiator Level and those can choose from higher level maneuvers.
