Take a level of tattooed sorcerer and give your stuff to your tattoo familiar?
Go a step further, put the pathfinder pouch with the mini chest on the familiar and turn it in to a tattoo.
Or a less extreme example, have a small unnoticeable familiar like a rat and have it run away with the mini chest.
Ok, I keep seeing this silly "36 AC lv7 fighter" example thrown around, but I highly doubt such a build even exists let alone is the real reason for this errata.
Math of disbelief:
If I have this right, Dex 20 (+5), 23500gp of gear
11500 for +1 mithril full plate (+5 max dex assuming armor training 1)
_1180 for a +1 heavy shield
_2000 for +1 ring of prot
_2000 for +1 amulet of nat armor
_5000 dusty rose ioun stone
and we're already almost at wbl and have only reached an ac of 31, so you'd have to somehow make up the extra +5 via feats. I can only see an extra +2 via dodge and shield focus. So, a 33 total. And less than 3000 gold for weapon, cloak of resistance, and everything else.
Assuming we're not going for an ultra dex build
... seriously, what am I missing? If you use the jingasa and fate's favored instead of the ioun stone, you're still only at 35 max; and still down 2 feats and 2 ac from the target of the exercise.
I really don't see any reason that they should have nerfed the jingasa so hard, and found it a nice companion on the AC track to the dusty rose prism ioun stone. I would like to get a dev's opinion why this singular entry on the ac track (pretty much the only one not in the crb) needed to be rendered effectively useless.
And I did a search on the PRD for "affiliate" and "affiliation" and the only two results that show up are festerogs and gods and their temples and shrines. You should really know better than to take an unofficial site over the official one.
I'm pretty sure you're holding on to 3.5 text that did not make the transition to pathfinder. There's no sure rule as slot affiliation in PF.

My thoughts exactly. I've been willing to put up with a LOT of these very-questionable erratas, but at this point I think we've reached the "straw that breaks the camel's back" threshold.
I blame the Star Wars series for the trope of mono-climate planets plaguing scifi/fantasy settings.
You missed taking Stealth Synergy for nigh-undetectablility .

Give the Wizard light armor proficiency and Arcane Armor feats, along with Arcane strike and Weapon Focus: Longbow.
Arcane Armor is probably not necessary, wizard still has mage armor, shield, blur, etc. Arcane Strike definitely. Weapon Focus, Point Blank Shot too. Long term goals also include Precise Shot and after wizard 12 take 2-4 levels in Arcane Archer to drop antimagic arrows.
Have your wizard be an elf going for arcane archer the hard way, the rogue can be an eldritch scoundrel (grants arcane spellcasting), the cleric takes heavy armor proficiency and uses a two handed weapon (gorum worshipper with negative channeling would be good here), and have the fighter do whatever it is RavingDork is doing here to be the skill monkey.
From Ultimate Equipment, 300gp will get you a riding gecko (400 for a combat trained one), which is a giant gecko with the giant simple template. Their environment is warm forests and mountains, so heat shouldn't be a problem. It's a str 17 large mount and you should only need the typical ride and handle animal skills to control it, just like a horse. It has a light load capacity of 258, medium 519, and max 780.
MAD is one that comes up often as well.
MAD - Multiple Ability Dependent, refers to a class or build that requires high scores in at least 2 abilities to function well.SAD - Single ability dependent, refers to a class or build that only requires one ability score to be very high, with only one or two other scores moderately high at most.
RAW - rules as written
Half the time on their highest attack bonus, which is the same as the much vaunted displacement, and even better if they have any kind of penalty like making iteratives.
But let me ask in return, what do you think is an acceptable hit chance vs someone not able to have maximum mirror images up at all times? Especially if they're likely to be getting in to melee, intentionally or otherwise.
My personal formula's a bit more complicated.
Take your level +1,
Running the numbers, this needs only about 13 + twice your level from level 1 to 6 or 7, then from 8 onwards it's 20+level.
bab 16+ 4 attacks
At low levels, a ninja with rapid shot, 2wf, and flurry of stars can launch upwards of 5 shuriken as a full attack (at like -6 each).
