So I was once again reminding myself why to avoid squall when I started playing with this this half baked idea for an elemental petmaster. Something that uses Artic beast and ball lightning to synergize with dust devil with Triple threat advantage. But I'm not quite sure where to go with it. Possibly Hurricane so I am not just standing around with my hands in my pockets while beasties do the work. (though I am not tied to that at all.)
Any ideas how would be best to go about it? One obvious problem is where to start, since I will need a few powers before I can even unlock the pets. If i start with wind/hurricane i'm stuck on taking a 3rd power that wont do much for me. Almost feels like I am better off starting in sorcery for the first few powers, including a good passive aura and getting the pets later.
Level 1: Eldritch Bolts
Level 1: Pillar of Poz
Level 6: Aura of Ebon Destruction
Level 8: Ritual of Primal Summoning
Level 11: Hurricane
Level 14: Dust Devil
Level 17: Ball Lightning
Level 20: Arctic Beast
Though leveling would be painful.
Other ideas? or does this go on the trash heap of bad ideas.
