Erastil Favored Weapon: Longbow

Erastil Blessings: Animal, Community, Law, Good, Plant.

4 of the 5 provide a melee perk as a minor effect. The same 4 provide some form of summoning as a major effect.

Community, the 5th of the bunch which is unique to Erastil, gives nothing which benefits the Warpriest.

The Warpriest should not be close enough to anything to use the Minor Blessing's Aid Another bonus.

The Major bonus requires a shield (which the Warpriest obviously wont be using) and when used makes all projectiles targeted within 10 feet of the enchanted shield strike the shield's bearer.

TERRIBLE for someone shooting a Longbow.

A Warpriest of Erastil doesn't have a single Blessing option which affects them and provides a bonus. The Community stuff is downright terrible as an Erastil only Blessing.

Finally, why so many melee only blessings? Is there any particular reason why the minor effects of, say, Good and Law can't be used on a Bow?

I can't agree with this enough, it's not the only favored weapon/blessing disconnect, but it is the biggest.

After playing the revised version I think the changes that were made are moving in the right direction. I do think that it is still under-powered compared to similar classes. I like how the power boost was focused around the companion and wouldn't mind seeing more of this. Some unfiltered, caffeine induced ideas:
-Larger hit dice for companion
-Better BAB for companion
-Some kind of bane like single combat or single enemy buff for the companion only (sick 'em fluffy)

i think pulling his DC from Cha but his bonus spells from Int would be a good way of making this caster a bit MAD and making sure he is more that just a different wizard.

Then why play it over any other arcane caster? I am personally glad that casting stat/spell DC disconnect didn't make it to PF from 3.5.
