"Put the, on the same level" does not mean "deal tons more damage."

Children don't detect as evil, they'd need at least 5HD. I don't think there's any creatures with an Aura of Evil that can also be children.

Dragons, Most/Some of them have enough Hit Dice right out of the egg to show up on Detect spells.

If casters won't be brought in line the only response is to put martials on that level too, and recreate the way the game works to balance it.

Hey, an actual reason for Pathfinder 2.0!

Let martials have nice things for a change? Poor shifter suffered the most from 'keep casters the best' IMO.

Well, we finally got a positive review of the Shifter, at least. That’s something.

Except there are some problems with it. Mainly the fact Shifter's Edge isn't full level to damage like they think. The other is that you can't two-weapon fight with (just)natural weapons.

Kind of ironic since they ask if the other reviewers even read the words...

EDIT: Nevermind, it's probably a trolling account since the review is literally the only thing the poster has done. How wonderful.

The fluff describes monk as mobile, but they still go on "stand still and hit" so....

Chimera is a fusion of forms. Bear with a bonus to skills is not a bearowl.

Still very misleading.

"Paladin of druid faiths" and "chimeric forms like a bearowl' and even now on the product page itself we have "heightened level of savagery' and the shifter is none of those things.

They told us we were getting a Full BAB spell-less shapeshifter. Numerous people extrapolated that a martial without casting would be a Master of Many Forms ultimate shapeshifter that would out shapeshift and be just as versatile as 9th level casters.

They told people a lot of things that led to the supposedly 'self-made' expectations. When those turned out to be, at best, no longer true when the class showed up....

Biggest problem with the Venerable Barbarian? Chances are he has even less rage rounds. 4 + Con modifier. Unless you put an 18 in Con you have 4 or less rounds at first level. This seems insanely weak.
I’d say you get the bonus rounds from your new Con when raging since you’re removing age penalties, not giving yourself a bonus to Con.

Except it's not bonuses that Rage cares about. It is any increase.

"Temporary increases to Constitution, such as those gained from rage and spells like bear's endurance, do not increase the total number of rounds that a barbarian can rage per day."

Never mind the fact raging and getting more rounds because you are raging makes no sense at all.

I was trying to come up with ways to boost its AC to a reasonable level, but it's going to be insanely expensive. Now I'm thinking I just let it have an insanely low AC and just try to mitigate damage in other ways.

If you don't want a hand the size of a pony what about a figment familiar? It doesn't die.

Hmmm, I think that would be up for a FAQ, if Cavalier AC's can still trade that option...
Or, alternatively... Paizo could not change the rules to be different than those for every other instance of archetyping.

I think the chance of that happening are as good as getting actual Psionics instead of watered-down psychic magic.

Just be careful since the 'new' Mauler can only shapeshift three times a day. It's BS, but might come up some how.

Not true. "Empyreal Lords, or the Lords of the Empyrean, are unique outsiders who have transcended their original forms and have acquired a small spark of divinity, becoming demigods."

Last I checked demigods are still gods.

While that nerf is brutally unnecessary, I'm not seeing a time limit on each change though.

Pray we get the old Mauler back.

From what I can tell we lose "SLAs count as spells for everything" because someone didn't want people getting early entry to the Evangelist prestige class they made...

That's not true because you still have to have the ranks in any skill a feat in the style chain has as a prerequisite.... so you're still really only be good at one or two.

Yes. It is clearly the "x Terrain/Job" Giant of Ultimate Wilderness.

That's what it looks like based on the forester's abilities. That's pretty cool.

That would be pretty neat. Most outsiders seem to be purely divine-empowered.

Well, let's be fair, Mauler familiar does not get you a Kerberos. He starts off the size of a doll and then turns into a massive lion-like creature with wings and a fiery breath weapon....

Besides, I'm pretty sure he liked to hear himself talk.

Also, Magical Child can't have Mauler familiars anymore. Ultimate Wilderness says that transforming familiars must have a single archetype that is legal for all its forms - Mauler isn't legal for improved familiars.

(Also, I vaguely remember that many of her cards were actually buffs...)

Setting aside the fact I loved the show for a moment...

Yeah, Magical Child is even less appealing to me now. Lot's of shapeshifting stuff just seemed to get nerf-nuked in the book.

I had a concept where the father was a wizard and the son was only just getting into Alchemy when a fire broke out in their house and the dad couldn't make it out. The kid managed to grab his dad's Spellbook and set about using it to find who set the fire.

He was an Arcane Bomber wizard, the only time I've used that Archetype. Since he was self taught from a probably singed spellbook, four prohibited schools made sense.

Well, the author of the archetype did make it bad on purpose. Guess we know just how bad until the FAQ hits. Or when it does.

(actually, in addition to guidance on the defaults, oozemorph and fiendflesh losing the code is on the list of things to consider too, so that would be potentially two reasons it shouldn't need that).

Hehe, knew it. Can Fiendflesh being any alignmentat be considered while you guys are at it? :)

Take her comments with a block of salt, by the way. Her games are vastly different in the "Paladins can be in Way of the Wicked as player characters and not fall" style of play.

That's not true. We had Druid and Beastmorph Alchemists. Also spells.

So... yeah, there are a lot of ways to play a satisfactory shapeshifter. First and Third Party.

I really like the two new spells that allow sorcerers and wizards to shapeshift other people and that permit the person it's cast on to change their own form while the spell lasts. The new spell for 'turn into a magical beast' spell is fun too.

Pity they're both limited to only sorcerers and wizards but no sense getting greedy.

Two spells better than a class for shapeshifting. Go, wizards, go!

Well the best 'build' for an Oozemorph is to take two levels and teach someone else Druidic, so...

You can find the post in the Ultimate Wilderness discussion thread, but it's going to get made to be on pair with the Vigilante talent known as Lethal Grace.

If you are in a home game and want a class to do something specific - create it.

This is the second time I've seen this cop-out argument. We buy Paizo products because we want to play with the stuff they make. If they say we are getting something that sounds great and it instead is not even close to what we were told the response should not be "do it yourself."

What you are advocating, unintentionally, is people no longer buying products from Paizo.

But deep down, I just want a certain archetype to clear it through PFS so I can create adorable slime girls and finally live the dream.

But you're not supposed to play Oozemorph to play an ooze, you're supposed to play Oozemorph to AVOID playing an ooze! PSHAAAW!

... Seriously, there is confirmation from the guy who wrote all of the Shifter trap options archetypes that being an ooze is intended to be a penalty and the goal of the archetype is to avoid it as much as you can. Which is stupid as I THOUGHT IT WAS GOING TO BE THE MAIN DRAW OF THE ARCHETYPE! I love that you get to be an amorphous blob as your base form... but it's written so badly that that concept is basically the only good part of the archetype. Maybe I should try my hand at writing my own...

This. So very much this. When you deliberately make an option so bad it's just filling word count...

Too bad the best way to play on is probably going to errata'd out in an FAQ.
