I'm hoping to play a melee Sorcerer with Mage Slayer and Sentinel feats, both of which provide good opportunities to use your reaction to make a Melee Weapon Attack. Currently, with 16 Dex, my best bet is a weapon with finesse, but I'm wondering whether there are other ways to boost my MWA attack bonus. E.g., at one point I considered Shillelagh, until I realised my Wisdom was less than my Dexterity, so, net decrease in to-hit.
I'm willing to dip up to 3 levels into other classes, hopefully without sacrificing more than 2 levels of caster, and ideally the solution won't require Concentration.
The emphasis is on boosting the Melee Weapon Attack provided by these two features: I'll be using Shocking Grasp (and other spells) for my Attack action.
My stat allocation at the moment is:
- 8 Str
- 16 Dex
- 12 Con
- 14 Wis
- 10 Int
- 16 Cha
