    [​IMG] OK. Two questions. They've probably been answered elsewhere . . but hey, you know you like typing things twice over...(??sorry??).

    Why is it worth getting as many mage levels after level 20 . . ? tell me again.
    I used to think that it influenced spell dc's but was rudely awakened when I read a post on the Bioware site. Level of the mage doesn't influence the DC. So is there any other reason I should be trying to get as many mage levels as poss? I'm sure I read it somehwere. . . overcoming spell resistance? Is that such a big issue??

    After level 20 when are the feats available? Is it as it was in the lower levels, every 3 levels, plus at every 5th if you're a mage?
    The reason I ask is cos I was looking at the exalted sorceress build on the bioware site and they give her a single feat at 21st level then two feats at 24 th level, 27 th level and 30th level.

    sorry to take your time with this. but if someone gets time to give me an answer, i'd be . . exalted.

    Spell resistance check is SR versus d20+Mage Level.

    If I recall correctly, that is the only spellcasting-related change that high wizard/sorcerer levels do.

    Spell DC then again is 10 + Spell Level + Spellcasting stat modifier. (So, 10 + Spell Level + Intelligence Modifier for wizards). Spell Focus improves this.

    The wizard gets standard bonus feats at epic levels, which may or may not differ from pre-epic wizard bonus feats. Do not mix wizards and sorcerers though. Sorcerers don't get pre-epic bonus feats.

    It is worth getting levels over 20 also because your caster level influences spell duration, damage dice etc. For instance, Mestil's Acid Sheath does 1d6 + 2*caster lvl damage ... Horrid Wilting does caster lvl d8 (up to lvl 25) damage, Fire Arrow has a similar progression with an extra arrow every 3 caster lvls.

    So if you are a serious Wizard/Sorcerer it is in your best interests to take as many levels as you can in order to ensure that your spells have the most effect.
