Talk:Blink Warrior (3.5e Prestige Class)
From D&D Wiki
A few Questions
Your skill list does not match your Feats list. Your skill lists matches a rogue, but heavy armor and martial weapons resemble a fighter. The Hit Die are fighter. BAB is fighter. Saves are rogue. The prerequisites are all spellcaster. That's quite a mashup of requirements.
In general, a prestige class should NOT be given proficiency in armor or weapons. These should carry over from their previous classes.
This class requires a considerable investment in spellcaster just to get the required abilities of dimension door and teleport. The class then gets abilities that do not synergize with the casting class.
I think that you are going in the wrong direction. This is a class that Fighters, Rangers, Monks, Scouts, and Rogues would want.
I suggest for prerequisites:
- Knowledge (Planes) 6 ranks or better
- Mobility (with all the prerequisite feats)
- BAB +8 or better
- Martial Weapon proficiency
- Character has teleported/dimension doored/etc.

- I don't see anything wrong with this PrC granting weapon and armor proficiencies. Full BAB PrCs usually (though not always) grant proficiency in simple and martial weapons. Just look at a few from the SRD; Arcane Archer, Blackguard, Duelist, and Dwarven Defender. Even a few 3/4 BAB PrCs grant weapon and/or armor proficiencies (Assassin and Shadowdancer). —Sledged 15:16, 21 September 2006 (MDT)
- I seem to recall something about this from somewhere. (There's lack of detail.) Essentially, the designers changed their recommendations on this after the initial prestige classes were published. They didn't say, "Don't do it", they more said, "avoid this." --Dmilewski 06:47, 22 September 2006 (MDT)
- So I looked at the PrCs from WotC's latests sourcebooks, the most recent I've looked at is the Tome of Battle: Book of Nine Swords, and just as you said not a one of them grants any armor or weapon proficiencies. Maybe we should write up some "Best Pracices" for PrCs. —Sledged 21:07, 25 September 2006 (MDT)
- Such as this? Character Class Design Guidelines (DnD Other)?
- Exactly like that!
- Done. —Sledged 22:20, 26 September 2006 (MDT)
Ex, Su, or Sp
The class features need to be labeled as Ex, Su, or Sp. —Sledged 15:23, 21 September 2006 (MDT)
