Please forgive me if I made any mistake.
Enjoy the builds.

NeverGetDrunkButStaySober:
You've made two notable mistakes.

Arcane Thesis reduces each metamagic feat by one spell level, so long as the spell doesn't go lower than the original level. Check out the errata here. Thus your first build would have WoF in a 6th-level slot, and so on. (The FAQ, by the way, is thus wrong.)

Also, Empower Spell and Maximize Spell are the only two metamagic feats that apply separately. The FAQ made it clear that other metamagic feats interact normally with each other, but Empower/Maximize is expressly noted as being otherwise.

Majere:
First, thanks for the reply.

Wtf? O.O There is an errata to the FAQ? I really missed that. Thanks for pointing this out, you've made my life a lot easier  :clap

Oh. Yup!

Again, thanks. I'll correct tomorrow (here in Italy is just about midnight and I gotta head to bed ;) )

KellKheraptis:
Mmmhmm...so THAT'S the errata.  Did you find it ironic that they fucked up the levels of the metamagicks in their example (unless they nerfed it to -1 now...)?  Also, Spellwarp Sniper is good for a dip with this type of mage, as sometimes you only ever need to fry one guy.

And it's great with Wings of Flurry to deny them that save :)
