I can't wait to play a stamina fighter. Sorry you don't like the system as it seams like a great one.
I was unimpressed until I made a character and saw the tricks I would have. It gives fighters more going power and options.
I can't wait until the weapons master's handbook comes out. More tricks and neat sounding abilities.
AC 26 is not high for a lvl 9 character.
Anyway, that's not what you are asking. The answer is just don't cast Shield (shield cannot be made into a potion) That 4 AC bump is really nice. Prepare other spells instead, true strike is first level and is verbal only.
You have been submitted longer than I have know about the new start date. I don't live under a rock but some how missed every blog post on it. I still submitted a new item. /joins line waiting to vote
I feel like stating up a shifter class now, but i've made so many at this point i need to consider publishing. XD
Maybe we all can push for Paizo to publish a vigilante option as a full shape shifter warlock. Alter self at Lvl 1, beast shape a the next talent.... Talk about a solid secret identity.
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.
You also gain hp and ability scores as your tier improves,
/oops got long again
There are many ways to get around This
Wearing a backpack that you drop to the floor at the first sign of trouble. Just keep important items on your belt or smaller bag.
A summoner and his eidolon share a mental link allows for communication across any distance (as long as they are on the same plane). This communication is a free action, allowing the summoner to give orders to his eidolon at any time. In addition, magic items interfere with the summoner’s connection to his eidolon. As a result, the summoner and his eidolon share magic item slots. For example, if the summoner is wearing a ring, his eidolon can wear no more than one ring. In case of a conf lict, the items worn by the summoner remain active, and those used by the eidolon become dormant. The eidolon must possess the appropriate appendages to utilize a magic item.
edit: If you could see me i would look like a ninja. *you hear the sounds of sunglasses being put on*
I would just use a different skill. Nature to see the stealth end tiger, dungeonering to notice the monster that looks like a stalagmite, appraise for a gargoyle or statue monster.
Perception can be to negate surprise but not advance notice.
Maybe give the rogue something in return if you've a player with that class.

I will pretend you didn't say #2.
i would keep perception as a counter to stealth. but i would make a lot of perception checks now rely on other skills. is that really a statue or a monster - appraise. how about that stalagmite, is it a monster? - dungeoneering. Or that vine- nature....
as fore stealth, my druid is good at it, being an apex predator of the world and all. stealth is a good way to not take damage, i can see how it would have been useful in my last Skulls and Shackles game were we were nearly TPKed. I could have sneaked up on the caster with blend or it was night i might not have needed it.
A challenge for a pc to overcome is why you play the game. I hear full BAB classes are good in melee too.
as a bonus I doubt someone will show up to out archer them.
Add a feat to ignore weather penalties and to count as a siege weapon (to shoot in hurricanes or othervweather) if you spend a full round action on a shot.
when i started using Hero Lab i was surprised how much encumbrance mattered. even a high str character would be impacted by it. I even had low str characters who could not function at 100% even with a bag of holding.
having a home base of operations makes everything better, or a few pack animals (riding dogs or Animal Companions). of course they can be interacted with, which is a huge plus. (OMG they know where we live, they ate Fluffy!, should we leave item x out here on the goat? (the goat answer is always no lol))
a wizard without a spell book is still an all powerful wizard. The spells in his head are still there, the potions, wands, scrolls, and magic items are still there.
a really long time after he loses his spell book - which honestly has many ways to be protected/hid/duplicated/or worked around, he might be in trouble. The trouble would only be if he is dumb, but we already covered he is a wizard so that cant happen.
losing a spell book just means you get to have a new one. since UM came out you can even buy premade ones super cheap.
edit: and yes wizards should have a spell book - it's their fluff. If you don't like it there are ways around it and still be a wizard or just be a sorcerer or another caster.
