OK, so the title might be slightly deceptive. This is an optimization question about charisma, but the goal is not to have the highest charisma possible (though builds should definitely crank charisma). Instead the goal is to make an effective character who is as SAD (single attribute dependent) as possible, focusing on charisma.
What I Have So Far:
- Divine Grace from paladin 2 gets me +Cha to all saves (on top of their normal attribute bonuses)
- Nature's Whispers from nature oracle 1 gets me +Cha to AC and CMD instead of +Dex
- Noble Scion feat gets me +Cha to initiative instead of +Dex
- Way of the Shooting Star for the Divine Fighting Technique feat lets me use Cha instead of Str/Dex for both attack and damage with starknives
But where can I go from there?
Goals (in priority order)
- Be reasonably effective from level 7 on, the earlier the better
- Get some use out of these starknives
- Get any possible additional use out of charisma (ideally finding a way to get Cha to HP instead of Con and/or getting +Cha skill ranks per level instead of +Int). Adding charisma to other rolls is great, but getting charisma-based point pools and other such uses for charisma is good too.
- The first 2 levels have to be in paladin to get Divine Grace, unless you can find another way to get +Cha to all saves (note that my table uses the errata-ed version of Divine Protection, so that's out).
- The character must take a level of oracle to get Nature's Whispers no later than level 7, unless you can find another way to get +Cha to AC and CMD.
- The character must have chaotic good alignment & worship Desna (to get Way of the Shooting Star); the LG requirement for paladin will be handwaved away, but other alignment/deity requirements probably won't be.
- The Noble Scion feat must be taken at first level, and the Divine Fighting Technique feat must be acquired by level 7 at the latest.
- All Paizo content in the PFSRD or Archives of Nethys is allowed.
- Third-party content from the PFSRD is limited; you can pick one publisher and use their content for one class. So if you use a rogue talent by Bob's Untested Homebrew, you can't use third party content from anyone else, and you can't use non-rogue BUH content. Third party feats are only allowed if they require a specific class or class ability.
- The character's race must be one of the core or featured races from the PFSRD. It should probably have a charisma bonus, unless you're getting something especially awesome instead. Variant aasimar & tiefling types are OK (no feat needed).
- Standard wealth by level is available, but builds don't need to specify magic items/equipment unless the specific items are important for the build.
