Hybrid SongweaverEdit

Music is in your heart and soul, and your songs come from this innate musical talent, however the power of the music is weaker in you than in other songweavers. Perhaps you inherited some of the music from a songweaver parent, but not the full power of the song, or perhaps you neglected to practice the art to the requisite degree.

Regardless of the reason, you lack the full power of the song that a full member of a class can sing, but you are a more than capable musician, and you make up for what you lack in musical talent with training in another class.

Suggested CombinationsEdit

The songweaver and sorcerer class make a good hybrid combination, with primary ability score overlap, and Dexterity as an overlapping secondary ability score. Sorcerer powers can provide the songweaver with useful ranged powers and extra bursts.

A songweaver/paladin can hold individual enemies in place while still attacking multiple foes with songweaver powers and maintaining accuracy with Charisma-based paladin attacks.

A songweaver/warlock can potentially make a good combination, though not to the same degree as a songweaver/sorcerer.
