Thanks everyone, I kinda cheated, combining a few similar books into one selection, and adjusted the categories a bit, but this is the text of what I wrote for the store (it isn't submitted yet, so feel free to convince me of something else):

Top 5 lists for Pathfinder Player Companions

This article deals with a question I’ve heard around the shop recently. “What other books should I look into getting?” Once you have the hardcovers, this gets to be interesting question, as there are many ways to prioritize what you want, So I’m going to give a number of my opinions on top 5 lists, based on what I enjoyed, what I have seen being used in games around the state, and what people are excited over:

Top 5 General Companions
*Pathfinder Society Primer - know who you're working for. The history of the society is a great thing for PFS.
***Champions of Purity/Balance/Corruption - these three books take one spot, because they are all equally useful, and fill the same role. Want to know how someone who worships your god acts? Look in the proper champions book
***Faiths of Purity/Balance/Corruption - similar to the above, but a bit more general information, not as focused on the divine casters
****Undead/Dragon/Giant/Demon Slayer’s handbook - these 4 books are packed with tips and tricks to fight the type of monster in the title. is you campaign set in the Worldwound, where demons rule the land? You might want to learn how to fight them then. Are you raiding a dragon’s lair? We have that too. Going to vanquish some sewers of a few variety of zombies and skeletons? Might want to know the difference first.
*Dungeoneer's handbook - Great tips for any beginner or intermediate player
*Honorable mention: The Strategy Guide - since its a hardcover, it couldn’t make the list, but even the most hardened game masters have said they learned things while reading the strategy guide.

Top 5 Martial Class Companions
You may see a pattern here. Melee classes are often defined by either their feats of their gear, so the crunchier ‘toolbox’ style books fit them well:

*Melee Tactics toolbox - lots of fun options for a wide variety of melee types
*Weapon Master Toolbox - I’ve heard talk that this book ‘actually fixes the fighter and puts him on par with a wizard at high levels’
*Dirty Tactics Toolbox - great for sneaky types, but there’s a little here for everyone
*Ranged Tactics toolbox - You want to be Green Arrow? Here’s some of your trick arrows, and feats to help you shoot .
*Advanced Class Origins - Some great options for all of the Advanced Class guide classes, but especially the Swashbuckler and Skald.

*honorable mention: Heroes of the Streets. I haven’t read this one yet, but it is the companion that currently has the highest review on paizo’s site.

Top 5 Arcane Spellcaster Companions
There’s a lot of ground to cover here, and there are not as many companions that deal with new spells, most of those require a campaign setting book. So these are a little all over the place

*Arcane Anthology - this one just came out, so I haven't read it yet, but the description is juicy for arcane content
*Monster Summoner's Handbook
*Familiar Folio
*Harrow Handbook - Great essays about how to use a harrow deck (which you can actually buy BTW) in your games, both as a GM and a Player.
*Alchemy Manual - alchemists and investigators are the ones to get the most use out of this, but there are some alchemical things that everyone might like in it.

Top 5 fluff (story) player companions
*Pirates of the inner sea - because who doesn’t like pirates
*Black Markets - What do ye want? Shiver? Flayleaf? Pesh? Poison? We gots it here!
*Faiths and Philosophies
*Quests and Campaigns
*Magical Marketplaces - A listing of some interesting marketplaces around Golarion along with sample item lists.

Top 5 race/location player companions
*Blood of Fiends/Blood of Angels - If you’re building a Tiefling or Aasimar, you need these books
*Blood of elementals - the elemental races and notes on playing one.
*Bastards of Golarion - Ever want to play a half-elf or half-orc?
*People of the Sands - All about Osirion and Qadira the Egypt and Arabian Nights analogs.
*Varisa, Birthplace of Legends - lots of fluff, but Varisa has a lot written about it to sum up in 32 pages. Great for character ideas

Top 5 “must get” for one or two items
In PFS, everything you own you must have a legal source, either the book, or the watermarked PDF. These are the player companions that are ‘must haves’ for a single powerful feat/weapon/spell
*Sargava, the Lost Colony - This is the only source of the feat Piranha Strike.
*Animal Archive - The ‘flank’ pet command is only outlined here.
*Champions of Purity - a must have for Paladins. Know what your god expects of you.
*Blood of the Moon/Night - Have you ever wanted to play vampire or werewolves? That's basically what these books are about (not much is PFS legal in these, but great for home games)
*Elves of Golarion - There are some arrows here that were only printed here. Some were reprinted in Ultimate equipment, but not all.

As far as I know they are working on adventure paths as quickly as possible unfortunately they are not the top priority of the Pathfinder Society team. Since they need to be the ones to write up the Chronicle sheets then it falls on that team to fit in adventure pass Chronicles whenever they can, normally you see them around the holidays and or right father Gencon.

For PFS GM the back of the adventure pass is more valuable than the adventure it's up to a lesser extent the same is true for players who can get tons of backstory for their cha for PFS GM the back matter of the adventure pass is more valuable than the adventure to flesh out the areas you see in the adventure path. to a lesser extent the same is true for players who can get tons of backstory for their character

Behamot from giants of legend if you are willing to shell out the cash...... But huge is the first level you can make your own. Go to ac Moore or Michaels or some other craft store, they have rubbery plastic dragon toys of the correct size, and they have spray paint

There seems to be one intelligent item per season or two the last few seasons, so I would not be surprised if another one shows up in the next year or two

I understand, and would love to see more miniatures with the detail that the iconic sets get as well.

The issue is these aren't just "gnome druid" it's "Lini". This is a specific character in the world, with her own history, and actively taking actions (see the Pathfinder comics by Dynamite entertainment). They don't have art for the miniature sculptors to go off of for these characters gender swapped. I guess I'm not seeing how a male 'cutpurse' and a 'male version of Merisal' differ enough to be useful.

I also believe that the iconics are 50% female be design, so that the maximum number of people can see heroes that 'look like them'.

Something I noticed: in 3 of my 4 bricks, the dungeon dressing was in the two far left packs of the brick when looking at the front of the packs.

I also love that they added an easy way to easily remove the Large minis from the packaging, while there were no flyer that were large, I didn't fear breaking any of the minis as I removed them.

I am firmly in the "any more than 5 human/elf figures per set of 45 is overkill" camp, so this taints my view, and is the reason I'm not going to do full reviews on a lot of these minis. But I thought I'd give you some of my thoughts from my case in top 5 lists.

Top 5 paintjobs
1) Draft horse - WoW! I thought this would be a mediocre paint job, but it is my favorite of the set. the shading of white paint down by the hooves getting lighter as it goes down is great

2)Flesh golem - There are issues, but you need to look closely to find them. There is a wow factor from this mini, the paint job makes this mini. I wish the eyes were better, and the left leg weren't so poorly painted (stitches were missed and the skin tone is all over the pants of two of the 4 I got).

3)Riding dog. While this is a really simple paint job, it is thick where it needs to be, and thin where it needs to be. There is lots of detail in the sculpt, and it all came out with the paint.

4) Ranzak - If it weren't for the parrots beak, this would be further up the list.

5) Half elf enchanter Every time I look at this one, I see more details in the paint job. her right hand is a little muddy, But otherwise great.

Bottom 5 paint jobs
1) Riding horse - Maybe its because of the riding horse's success... Maybe it's because there is no such thing as a naturally occurring white horse in real life,but this mini just feels unfinished

2) The reissues - My RoW Feiyas were both 100% better than the one I got in this case. Her right eye ios on top of her hair, and her left eye has iris so small, it looks like shes staring into the sun. All of the lines on her dress are not strait, and the white outlines on the back of her dress are so bad I think its the worst pain job i've seen on a Pathfinder Battles figure yet. The King is mostly better, but he suffers from raccoon eyes, and the red from his cloak is all over his right hand and his armor where it shouldn't be.

3)Dwarf Bard - The face is horrible, I couldn't tell he had detail in his eyes until I looked at it under a magnifying glass.The Lyre on his back I missed until writing this up, all 3 I got had the drumsticks bent almost 90%, and only the right drum stick has a head on it.

4)Allevrah - This one had the most potential, but was poorly executed. Again, there is no nose on this figure, both arms are painted so poorly, I'm thinking of having my 3 year old niece fix them. I think she has blue earrings, I don't think the entire bottom half of the ear is supposed to be blue is it? Her hair has green from her veil, gold from her armor, and the skin tone that is supposed to be on her ear in it and her neck is unpainted.

5)Vampire Spawn - The shirt is well painted, The skin on all 4 I got we painted so thickly that all detail from the sculpt is gone... Bare feet look like they have boots on because of the lack of discernible toes. Hands have no fingers. They also appear to have been laid down after painting, before the paint dried. there is the impression of a table on the back of the arms of 3 of the 4 spawns.

***NOTE: pious guard is an honorable mention for both these lists... some are masterfully painted, others dreadful ***

5 Most awesome figures
Beaky
Flesh Golem
Orc on Dire Wolf
Silver Dragon
G Cube

Most boring figures
1)Barkeep - nothing screams bartender about her, a better name would be 'blonde' as it is her only defining feature
2)Cutpurse - just borring paint job, weapons bent.
3)Graceful slayer - the curved sword makes it look exactly like my least favorite WotC elf mini
4)Bugbear Flesh Glutton - When would I ever want 3 of these, bugbear are medium, I don't need any large ones, if I wanted a large one, I'd put a medium one on a large base.
5) Gorgon - The Horns - So bad They could have at least been shaped like naturally occurring horns.

Figures I will use the most
Beaky
Draft horse
G Cube
Bunyip - we've needed this since RotRL, its been used in a number of other modules and scenarios
Kobalds - too many modules and PFS scenarios have kobold trapsmith

Figures I will use the least
1) The minis that made my 'bottom 5 paint jobs' or 'most boring' lists
2) Dancing Girl
3)Dwarf wizard - I just don't like that hat
4) Bugbear Mystic - just a very 'meh' mini
5) Bed - most of the other dungon dressing is from places where encounters happen... If you place a bed on the map, the players automatically become suspicious. of a future encounter.

If this is the wrong spot for this,question, then please accept my humble apology.

Anyway, I have a question. Since 3D printers are coming down in price and some companies are offering programs for 3D printers to create scenery for RPGs, is there a possibility of your figures ever having the 3D printing option?

This is a lisensed product, you'd have to ask on e wizkids forums. but as

1) Being prepainted is the draw of these over the reaper minis
2) The quality of work from most 3D printers still not up to even wizkids sculpts
3) The fact that making minis is what wizkids does. it doesn't have a way to desseminate printer files
4)the breakup in rarity scheme would cripple the marketing strategy of the line.

I doubt these will ever be available as 3d printer files

Thx to Canada.

I opened my boxes quickly before going to bed and havent had the time for a deep look but the quality is not that bad at first look.

And sadly my brick have no Irovetti or Feiya, maybe it's one per case, but IIRC, they said one per brick.

My emphasis.

I agree with the others that these two are not opposing ends.

My wizard adds new spells to her book every scenario. A good Day job roll can be the difference between 2nd level and a 3rd level spell (having almost all the 1st level (CRB/UM)spells by level 6. Versatility in spell choices make a wizard more useful in scenarios.

Agreed - My ranger's Day job let him get the Holy enchantment on his weapon one scenario sooner - leaving him with enough damage to bring the rest of the parties corpses back after chasing off the demon attacking them

spells with a touch attack are a little different... you can hold the charge for a little bit after casting...

"Holding the Charge: If you don't discharge the spell in the round when you cast the spell, you can hold the charge indefinitely. You can continue to make touch attacks round after round. If you touch anything or anyone while holding a charge, even unintentionally, the spell discharges. If you cast another spell, the touch spell dissipates. You can touch one friend as a standard action or up to six friends as a full-round action. Alternatively, you may make a normal unarmed attack (or an attack with a natural weapon) while holding a charge. In this case, you aren't considered armed and you provoke attacks of opportunity as normal for the attack. If your unarmed attack or natural weapon attack normally doesn't provoke attacks of opportunity, neither does this attack. If the attack hits, you deal normal damage for your unarmed attack or natural weapon and the spell discharges. If the attack misses, you are still holding the charge."

The third option is crossbow track for the ranger. At 6th level you get crossbow mastery as a free feat... I have a character who did this took light crossbow feats until 6 then took crossbow mastery and retrained his light crossbow feats.

Having favored enemy and CLW on your spell list can both save lives.

That said, I've yet to see a single legal PC that can make a scenario a cakewalk.

We have a sword and board fighter played by an 8 year old at the time, who has been inspected by 2 different campaign coordinators due to GMs complaining that they couldn't hit him even with a 19 on the die when he was level 4 playing tier 6-7 in 1-7 scenarios. he would great cleave through 9bad guys per round in scenarios that "sheer numbers should push the party to hide or fight from a different location", breaking the narrative. It wasn't disruptive in this case, the rest of us just got to enjoy other facets of our characters, and chose to bring different spell lists and gear when adventuring with him.

The only scenario I hit him more than once was a bad guy with multiple touch attacks that could all go off one round

Wait? Those are free? Oh, cool- I thought they were just regular flavor feats with weird prerequisites. If there is no actual cost (other than meeting the prereqs), that makes those a lot better.

I believe that Xbox awards and PlayStation trophies were the inspiration. It was suggested that you didn't even have to tell the players about them and just give a 'pop-up alert' of "you just gained an ability!"

They have improved the process very well. The fact remains that the more rigid the plastic, the better you can get molded details. But Wizkids now has the ability to use multiple types and hardnesses of plastic for one miniature. So for a spear wielder, the spear and arms may be super bendy, the legs semi bendy, and the both body rigid. I have had some of the more recent sets bend at the ankle to the point they are parallel to the base, without snapping

One of the novels starts with flying demons attacking within the wardstones, so I don't think its unheard of. but you don't send your scouts to attack a heavily fortified area unless you have backup for them, or its a suicide mission.

It says "they like money," "they wear white gloves," "they're not worried Aroden died," and "their familiars got swag" and unfortunately very little else. Do the Kalistocrats feature into any of the novels?

Part of a wiki is that you have links to wiki-surf. So from that page you can click on the High Prophet Kelldor's page to answer your notable members question.

I'd take a look at the reference section of the Wiki article and click around the blue links to find information. The great thing is that most things on the wiki are referenced, so you can find the book and page number most of the information is for.

edit: PZO9507 GameMastery Module J2 Guardians of Dragonfall is from VERY early in the run, and mostly retconned out of existence, so if you had to sacrifice a product, this would be my choice. The location from that module also is not on any of Golarion's maps IIRC
