Thanks guys for doing this thread! Love the class but it is a lot for me to absorb.

Ask for character bios. Push them to make better ones if they are lacking.

...I've played with a friend who claimed to have a 20th lvl wizard for his dad. That is not the type of detail you want in a bio.

greater magic weapon/ Magic vestment exist and are easily obtainable/spam able at levels where you have the cash to buy an expensive armor or weapon. I would rather have a good ability than a bonus.

in other news, abacus vs abacus battle!

this was not one of your examples so just to clarify for others, fatigued and exhausted have their own duration listed in the rules.

Range: Any attack at more than this distance is penalized for range. Beyond this range, the attack takes a cumulative –2 penalty for each full range increment (or fraction thereof) of distance to the target. For example, a dagger (with a range of 10 feet) thrown at a target that is 25 feet away would incur a –4 penalty. A thrown weapon has a maximum range of five range increments. A projectile weapon can shoot to 10 range increments.

Get a good range stat.

add 5 mythic tiers for a day. it adds HP, options, damage (mythic feats), and neat abilities. It is also online if you don't have the books.

The Exchange Marathon Voter Season 6, Marathon Voter Season 7, Marathon Voter Season 8, Marathon Voter Season 9

use this table to design the giant. monster stats by CR

unless your group is heavily optimized or have a lot of advantages you shouldn't really do anything over CR 6 on this table. 2nd level is still very weak, even with 20 point buy.

the action economy is in favor of your players but if he hits it is likely lethal. Dividing his attacks into two slams instead of one big hit is probably best. Picking on different targets if you feel the monster is at an advantage.

The creature should have about 5 feats, i suggest the saving throw feats, improved initiative, and power attack (always power attack).

I would flavor this giant as sick/drunk/injured

The Exchange Marathon Voter Season 6, Marathon Voter Season 7, Marathon Voter Season 8, Marathon Voter Season 9

I would probably have the target realize he is flanked and from which square automatically, if the invisible cleric chooses to help with the flank. The cleric could choose to remain hidden instead and not provide a flank.

I started explaining the specifics and the post got very long. Basically it is a special prestige class that advances off plot not xp. They all have a special resource called mythic power which you can spend to add to d20 rolls or to use many of your powerful abilities.

You get a path ability (more as you advance) that either allows swift casting of spells that doesn't expend your slot, a free attack that ignore dr, free move for all in range etc. all spend mythic power.

You gain path talents they are very varied. Like being a divine source of spells, not aging, the ability to change an enemies channel energy to what ever you want, auto 20 on skills. Most take mythic power to use.

And mythic feats.
Either improvements to feats or modifications to your mythic goodies. For example power attack does extra damage, bonus mythic power, access to mythic spells, or legendary items.

You also gain hp and ability scores as your tier improves,

/oops got long again

Lvl 3 Elemental servant: upgraded unseen servant, that is a small elemental. Cannot Hurt living creatures.

Lvl 4 Suppress supernatural, a supernatural effect is suppressed and cannot be activated for 1 round per level. (Su flight might be painful)

Lvl 1 reality distortion. Movement with in 30' of you ignores diagonal movement penalties. 1 min/ per level.

Yes, the non casting talents all need to be stronger.

The Exchange Marathon Voter Season 6, Marathon Voter Season 7, Marathon Voter Season 8, Marathon Voter Season 9

Wow. This is super cool.

The Exchange Marathon Voter Season 6, Marathon Voter Season 7, Marathon Voter Season 8, Marathon Voter Season 9

Having a secret identity may not help much in many games but even Carrion crown ,Jade Regent and WoTR seem to have many instances where it could be awesome.

The Vigilante really needs abilities based around why he is what he is. I am not sure the best way to do it, but I would suggest abilities for the social persona based on a desire for vengeance, protection, truth, justice, freedom, secrets (like Sealing away an evil/keeping dangerous objects locked up/stopping cultists)...

The social and vigilante personas would gain a number of abilities usable in both forms. Less sleep, faster natural healing, and theme focused abilities. The abilities may overlap with your specialty which may be strong but also harder to keep your identity secret.

The Exchange Marathon Voter Season 6, Marathon Voter Season 7, Marathon Voter Season 8, Marathon Voter Season 9

I agree about the talents needing more depth. Each choice should be thematic and powerful. If they are not powerful then the vigilante Should get some abilities earlier. Maybe have minor and major talents. Minor could even be available in social mode.

It's kinda of a super hero thing to have lots of variety and the choice should be more on theme than power.

Or powers based on why they became a vigilante....

Are you looking for changes , new talents or something else?

I was just asking for other suggestions so Paizo has help thinking up awesome ideas. I limited it to warlock since the it seems to have the most hate on the forums. Of course the other specialties need help too.

But really the only things I'll stress is since this class literally picks its abilities, including spell casting, is that it can be much more flexible and doesn't need dozens of archetypes. It can do this easily. The warlock shouldn't have to rely on furthering it's spell casting and it's talents really should make that choice more interesting.

The Exchange Marathon Voter Season 6, Marathon Voter Season 7, Marathon Voter Season 8, Marathon Voter Season 9

I would love to see the following options as talents for the warlock. Not archetypes, non exclusive so you can mix and match.

Charisma as the casting stat
Casting like the occultist (from what I saw in the play test)
An intelligent weapon (like the blade bound magus)
Hexes
Arcanist exploits
more shadow magic, some increasing spell casting ability. Or just more awesome options.
a Familiar as spell book (tack it onto the base ability as an option)
School specialization more like sin magic
More alchemy as spell casting.
an option for full BAB

Other other thoughts on what other abilities we should request be added?

Interesting comparison OP.

talents for casting is awesome, Spell casting is ultimate flexibility. New powerful spells are made in every book. To say it is limiting due to being too good is not a good reason to give it for free. I do hope the other talents make the player really think about picking up the spells or not. There are lots of other ways to be magical and I hope it hits those themes.

The martial options really needs to be more exciting, think book of 9 swords.

But how Is it fair compared to the Magus, Bard, Inquisitor, and Witch?

They get their spell casting progression for free...

Spell casting is not a core part of the class so they tax it, warlocks and I assume zealots have other strong options to rely on like eldrich strike. It's probably better to compare them to classes with a max of lvl 4 spells. Since two of the options are non casting and obviously do not have stronger talents to compensate. The vigilante just has the options to push spell casting further and get them sooner.

Would the VMC look like for the vigilante? I am having trouble picturing it.

On the other end vigilante seems to combo well with many VMC.

...

Isn't that a doozy? That's 68 out of the 69 talents we've seen so far. The ONLY talent that can be used while in a social identity is Case The Joint.

This class, as shown currently, possesses 72 class abilities (out of 93 total class abilities) THAT YOU CAN'T EVEN USE HALF THE TIME!

That's literally over 3/4 (~77%) of what the class is offering you! This problem will surely become much more pronounced as they release more talents if something doesn't change.

It NEEDS to change.

Ok, no one loses all of them and I doubt social aspect is half PC play time in many cases, but I get the point. Which of these abilities should be available in both? I'm fine with possibly all of them but think it would be cool to have our social aspect get a few abilities from a different path for his cover identity.

All of them.

Ah i actually missed that, hyperbole aside though he still has the base ability, HD, Saves, skills, feats (that he still qualifies for), and PC level cash. That is a lot to work with.

Maybe give a universal talent that allows a cohort while in social form. Or just take/give a bonus to the leadership feat.

I would suggest using different tactics when in social and vigilante forms to hide your identity.

The more I read this thread the more I like this class. If your social identity keeps getting attacked it makes sense that he has learned to fight or has spend money on magical resources.

They are in motion, poised to move and are wearing heavy objects. Even a bag of holding or a haversack will help you to the ground.
