While I'm not 100% on board with Lemmy's attitude, I agree with them. These erratas have been as heavy handed as possible. It's almost sarcastic the level of brutal editing we're getting here.

Wanna know the worst part? Because they only release errata before a new printing, there's next to no chance it will change soon. Because those books have to sell before we see the new, hopefully but not likely, better errata.

Lots of justification would be nice, actually. Imagine, if you will, that instead of piles of threads like this one, we got actual answers to our questions?

Right now we aren't.

Most health? Probably not, since they still needed Int to get more spells per day.

HOLY S&~* they killed the scarred witch doctor. It casts off Intelligence now. Wow, that one is massive.

Hmm... What was that 'casting' class that looks better now that it's the only one that uses Con? Oh yeah. The kinenticist. Paizo nerfs options so new classes look "better" guys, this isn't new.

Now that UCRogue actually got perfectly working DEX to damage, it's fine to nerf the feat to ground.

It's really not. Not everyone wants to multi class for a character to be effective.

Here's something that's been bugging me for a while. Why in the world did they choose to use psionics in this book? You'd think, with so much talk of not using psionics they'd at least think up a new name for what's been a power in Psionics books for years(like Ego Whip).

It just doesn't make sense. Paizo should be able to do better than copy/edit/paste.

Prestige Classes Unchained. Make them worthwhile, but not more so than staying a single class.

It's people like this that give Psionics the stigma it's gotten...

Eh. Debatable. In a world with actual divine presence, I can see a lot of people developing a "well what have the gods done for me?" attitude.

And then a melee reincarnates into the body of a 6-year old / 90-year old. --> Slit your own throat to get a new roll, or trash the character.

So heroic.

Oh, but that's only if you don't want Negative Levels or Ability Burn. You know, those things that make characters more likely to die if the don't spend more of their gold?

Raise Dead becomes the cheaper option, suddenly...

20 Strength toddlers happen though, on occasion.

To the OP: you say you wanted to make Reincarnation more like its mythological roots, but then do nothing to actually accomplish that. First, the person's deeds(alignment) are taking into account and then his soul is reborn in a infant body of whatever the gods decided he deserve to come back as. Humans/humanoids were not the highest reward.

And things like backstory and class and ability scores are entirely linked to the body because the soul doesn't work out or retain memories.

Thinking about the Sapphire Planet led me to doing research. Research led me to some interesting discoveries, which lead to ideas which lead to a character concept.

Further research reminded me of the perfect way to get the Concept into Reality.

I feel ingenious and evil all at the same time and its so awesome!

The key words are "in any direction". It doesn't say "horizontally in any direction". It's slightly unfortunate.

I feel like i must have been the only person who NEVER considered eidolons to be normal outsiders that for some reason attached themselves to some person.

I mean the iconic's story and the summoners fluff made them feel like a special outsider that couldn't maintain a form without someones help.

You're not the only one.

I thought it made sense that the eidolon was an extension of the Summoner's will given form. That's why it was shaped completely by their decision.

I will third this notion. Now alignment shifts just make the extension of your on will disappear, instead of changing to match.*

*If the Unchained version is used. Sorry, PFS players, more restrictions for you...

You have to summon creatures on a surface that supports them.

General changes I noticed:

Eidolons now have a default alignment based on type and the summoner must be within one step of that alignment.

The second most terrible thing for me. What happens if the summoner changes alignment? Do they lose a class feature, or have to pick a different type of outside and recreate an entire character's worth of stats again?

First thing: no more dragons, or animals, or plants or insects. No, that's a Angel. Or a Protean. No matter what it looks like, you've gotta add in those facts, and it just subtracts from the fun of an Eidolon for me. :/

The world isn't full of Fighter/Monk multi-classing either, your point?

My point is that for all the work they put into making the Unchained Classes better/more balanced, they could've made some of the VMCs worth losing half your feats over.

I saw that too. Not the most attractive VMC option ever. Especially as the bonus to AC you get comes in at 15th level! Yeah, I'll lose the ability to wear armour for my first 14 levels to get a poxy bonus at level 15!

Some of the other VMCs are awesome though. Shame we can't use them in PFS.

Druids get animal companions, barbarians get rage, but poor monk doesn't get Wis to AC for their VMC, or flurry, and get a piddly dodge bonuses at level 15. Yeah, not buying that.

I blame Tolkien for the constant claims of cheese at martial tools. Imagine if people's impression of what a non-caster should be able to do in a fantasy setting wasn't Boromir and instead was Beowulf.

In Lord of the rings they talk about one man being worth more than thousand men so we cannot blame this one on Tolkien. There is a archer that one shots a dragon. A (apperantly) very high level hobbit expert that beat a gigant quasi divine spider. Tolkien have it all. He was a old cheese Ball, him.

Actually it is the magic guys that are low power in Tolkien that is why they all run around with swords.

And guns.

What if you made it similar to concentration? That lets everyone make the checks without spending precious skill points. The only things this changes are prerequisites(I can't think of any right off the bat), Skill Focus no longer applying, and changing Alertness.

Scarred Witch Doctor uses con for spell DCs, levels of spells the can cast, and hex DCs. Bonus spells per day is still aint based.

It's a cruddy move.

Wizards can.

Bring up prepared casters reminds me of a theory someone had back before ACG was being sold: the current FAQs and erratas were being issued solely to make the options in the book look better.

Take, for instance, the Wizard archetype Spell Sage, who can cast any spell from other class lists(three. Bard, Cleric, and Druid!). At any time. Sound familiar? That's right, it's better than what people were doing with Paragon Surge.

But it comes at the high cost of taking rounds to cast and using up two slots of the same level. That's horrid, but "legal". But is it still better than the Paragon Surge abuse?

Paragon Surge Abuse

  • Took two feats
  • A specific race(or human with a Feat)
  • A third level slot cast before the spells
  • Only worked with sorcerer/wizard spells
  • Came into play at level 11.

Spell Sage

  • Wizard only
  • Starts at level 2
  • Has longer casting times
  • Can be any spell from three other class lists

Tacticslion, if Paizo had a subscribe button, you'd be on my list. You've made excellent posts describing your stance on the FAQ subject.

Some new spells in the ARG(like the Oread spells) were made options for Qinggong Monks.

@Mark

Will the errata explain the crit part of Pummeling Style? Still wondering if a single crit makes the entire full attack a crit or if a single crit makes the attack count as a crit for on-crit affects.
There are, shall we say, many different things involving Pummeling Style that are currently unclear. I am hoping we will have an erratum that will make Pummeling Style crystal clear, with no need for FAQs. If not, I'm ready to FAQ it as well.

Please, please, please don't let it be another Crane Wing nerf. Martials need nice things. Unarmed martials even more so.

Also, keep up the good work! :)
