Feyform Shifter is another powerful archetype for the new Shifter class in Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous, The Last Sarkorians DLC. It comes with Fey Aspects and damage reduction that protects against almost all weapons and increases as you level up.

A Feyform Shifter can also become resistant to movement-impairing effects and spells equal to 10 + their class level at level 20. To make sure you’re getting the best out of this archetype, you should level up with some strategy in mind. With this guide to the best Feyform Shifter build in Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous, you can learn how to create your character and which options to choose as you progress.

Similar to the Manticore Shifter, this archetype is also quite strong, but you can make the best of it if you know how to approach character creation and which feats to invest in as you level up.

Character creation for the best Feyform Shifter build

Just like when you’re building your Manticore Shifter, you should start with a human (even though the race doesn’t affect the final result that much) and go with the Street Urchin/Pickpocket background.

You may want to distribute your ability points so that Strength and/or Dexterity take the lead, depending on personal preferences. Here’s one example of how you could approach this:

  • Strength: 14
  • Dexterity: 20
  • Constitution: 14
  • Intelligence: 7
  • Wisdom: 14
  • Charisma: 7

If you put Dexterity first, then spend your skill points on options like Mobility, Stealth, Trickery, or Athletics. Also, it is important to choose Chaotic Neutral as your alignment and pick Cayden Cailean as your deity of choice.

Mythic progression for the best Feyform Shifter build

For First Ascension, you can choose Close to the Abyss and use Master Shapeshifter as your first Mythic Ability. At level 2, you can go for Power Attack (Mythic), add Ever Ready and Arcana 1 at level 3, and choose Mythic Critical/Claw at level 4.

The abilities you select from level 5 onwards don’t make much of a difference, so go with whatever makes the most sense at the moment.
