The design of your wizard is a very individual thing and it heavily depends on your preferences. The wizard is also the path where it’s better to start slow and build up your characteristics later on because the wizard is best in the long run. But if you really want to be a badass from the beginning then you should consider following things. The most important attributes you should think about are Intelligence, Dexterity and Constitution. Do the most you can to take your Intelligence up to 18, then you’re good to go. Charisma and Strength are not that important so don’t worry about them. The best choices for Race are Human and Elf because they give you extra Intelligence. And with Arcane Bound you can choose either the Bonded Object or a Familiar. They both can work very well for Wizards. For a complete guide to building a wizard, check out “THE COMPLETE Professor Q’s Guide to the Pathfinder Wizard”.
