I have a fluffy character concept and I need help fine-tuning crunch to something viable.
The character: A dragonborn full caster (sorcerer) with Dragon Origin and a splash of cleric (Deity: Bahamut).
I need help realizing...
A strategy for optimized melee DPR, based off either the build below or a modified version thereof, as a secondary character focus. Full-spell casting is still the primary goal of the character, but I am looking for good melee nova options as an acknowledged, normally sub-optimal backup strategy that won't gimp my spell caster focus.
Current build idea (subject to change):
Sorc 1 (Dragon Origin - Color irrelevant at this time) Cleric 1 (Bahamut, War or Protection Domain) Sorc 2 - 6 (Bahamut's blessing converts his prior Origin color to Gold. Already have this approval for this switcheroo)
Stats: STR 14+2 DEX 8 CON 12 INT 8 WIS 14 CHA 15+1
ASIs: 8-CHA, 16-CHA
Feats: 4-Warcaster , 12-Elemental Adept (Fire)?
The idea was to use Sorcerer metamagic twinning on Greenflame Blade, with the dragon origin CHA to fire damage, to create a martial-ish vibe while using heavy armor and maybe a shield. I'm aware of the paladin/Sorc MC goodness and am deliberately trying not to abuse this and ideally trying get 9th level spells. Also, I will be trying to fill a support-ish role in the group, as there is no divine caster and by MC'ing cleric, I snag heals (Healing Word especially) as well as Bless
