The Power Gamer's 3.5 Wizard Strategy Guide
For wizards, sorcerers, and other arcane spellcasters

Kick Monster Butt

You're looking at the only strategy guide for the revised edition of the world's most popular role playing game. Let's be real -- the game's about combat, not charisma! This strategy guide gives you the strategies and techniques you need to win. It's like a football coach's playbook, or a video game champion's cheat codes. Feat combos, sneaky spell uses, multiclassing secrets, and abusing the rules: that's what it's all about.

Build the Perfect Magic User

Pick the wrong spells and you'll be pushing up daisies. Pick the right ones and you'll be racking up XP! This book is all about making the right decisions to build the perfect magic user. Whether you're a wizard, sorcerer, or other arcane spellcaster, if you're interested in combat, you'll learn how to max out your abilities.

Make the Right Decisions

What's the best option: "front end" spells with attack rolls, or "back end" spells that give the target a save? What's your best chance of survival: max out your ability to beat spell resistance, or max out your save DCs? Is Weapon Focus (ray) really a good choice, even for a ray specialist? When you're through with this book, you'll know the answers.

But Don't Tell the DM

Everything in this guide comes straight from the core rulebooks. It's 100 percent official material; all we do is tell you how to use it. But you don't want your DM to read this book. Just think, all these useful tips and suggestions in the hands of the guy who runs the monsters! Shudder. Keep this one tucked away or you'll regret it.

First of Its Kind

This book has no new rules, no new feats, and no new prestige classes. Instead, it brings to d20 the most popular book category of the video game industry: the strategy guide. The Power Gamer's 3.5 Wizard Strategy Guide tells wizards, sorcerers, and other arcane spellcasters how to make the right decisions to build the perfect magic user -- using only the 100 percent official rules presented in the PHB. Chock full of tables, charts, stats, and comparisons with all the number-crunching done for you, it's a first-of-its-kind product useable in ANY d20 campaign.

Very interesting read, even for longtime gamers. I play Mage-type Charakters quite often but I still learned quite a few tricks from it. The only downside is that it is Core-Rules only.<br><br> <b>LIKED</b>: There are many tips [...]

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
