Githyanki Tips & Notes

  • Githyanki statistics and racial traits make them effective Eldritch Knights, Warlocks or Wizards, given the bonuses and proficiencies they get. Specifically, Wizards are capable of using medium armor, making Dexterity a less important ability score.  In many
  • Greatsword and Longsword training are also useful for building Melee-oriented Wizards or Warlocks, allowing them to pursue Heavy Armor builds with Dual Wielding or even Great Weapon Master feats later down the road.
  • Power Builds include using the Circlet of Intelligence (automatically grants 18 Intelligence) allowing you to push that stat down to '9' at Character creation in anticipation of acquiring this very powerful item.
