In Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous you can either make your companions really useful or incredibly weak. Unfortunately, many people when they start the game tend to build their companions in the worst way possible due to experimenting. Luckly, you can change your character’s stats and levels at any time, so here is the best build for Camellia if you want to do a semi realistic build, roleplay wise.
Camellia Build Guide – Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous
For the stats bonuses, you should invest all +5 into Dexterity. It’s perfect for melee and ranged combat thanks to Weapon Finesse.
All your Skill points should be put into Trickery and Perception.
For classes, you should do 16 levels of Spirit Hunter, 2 levels of Fighter and 2 levels of Barbarian (Instinctual Warrior).
Here are the feats and skills you should get for every level, with the respective class:
- Shaman – Hampering Hex
- Shaman – Weapon Focus: Rapier
- Shaman – Iceplant
- Shaman – Fencing Grace: Rapier
- Shaman – Outflank
- Shaman – Battle Master
- Shaman – Dodge
- Shaman – Secret: Extend
- Shaman – Shatter Defenses
- Shaman – Air Barrier
- Instinctual Warrior – Improved Critical
- Instinctual Warrior
- Fighter – Improved Unarmed, Crane Style
- Shaman – Crane Wing
- Fighter – Toughness
- Shaman – Wind Ward
If you think the Barbarian classes are weird for a mage, you would be very wrong. The Instinctual Warrior receives bonuses to AC and initiative through Wisdom and some other bonuses thanks to Wisdom, which Camellia has a lot of.
Her magic will be more for support, buffs and debuffs, rather than offense, which will be ok since she will have a decent amount of AC and attack damage that can fight on the front lines.
