The Power of Dragons Is Yours

Few creatures inspire greater awe than dragons, and Pathfinder Player Companion: Legacy of Dragons dives into the ripples left in these mighty creatures' wake. Whether they help or harm, dragons make a lasting impression, from the legends and philosophies they inspire to the bloodlines they foster.

Inside this book you'll find:

  • New archetypes ranging from the dragonheir scion to the wyrmwitch, allowing players to access draconic appearances as well as lore, powers, and spells.
  • Ways for characters to enlist drakes and lesser dragons to serve as allies, improved familiars, and even flying mounts.
  • New draconic bloodlines for bloodragers and sorcerers, allowing eldritch abilities based on esoteric, imperial, outer, and primal dragons.

This Pathfinder Player Companion is intended for use with the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game, but can be easily incorporated into any fantasy world.

Fluff good, not much else is.

**( )( )( )

I wanted to like this book. I really, really, really did. The fluff is great, and the 'premise' of the archetypes and drakes are nice.

But.

Both the archetypes, and the drake companions themselves, have some of the worst balancing I have seen in pathfinder. An example of this is the druid, who replaces an animal companion with a drake companion. The drake is actually weaker then alot of normal animal companion choices, and to take the archetype actually removes six of his core abilities just for the drake part of the archetype, never mind the additional abilities changed for the other parts of the archetype.

I really hope at some point paizo revisits the idea of these drake archetypes and companions and does a tremendous re-balancing, as many of these archetypes feel almost unplayable with how bad they can gimp a character.


The new Dragon-themed options are BAD

*( )( )( )( )

I picked up this book excited to create my new "Dragon" themed character and all the options were very weak. Also, throughout the book there were sentences repeated over and over again. I waited months for this issue and I'm completely disappointed. It's the worst Player Companion I've ever read.


Some bad, some good. Sorta meh

**( )( )( )

This book has a few good ideas and some great flavor text.

It falls short on the mechanics side though, especially with the archetypes that involve drakes. The cavalier archetype that gets a drake is the worst, and is so bad, I think the writer(s) who made it have never played a cavalier before, it just guts the class.

There are some glaring typos in the book, like a certain fighter archetype replacing a bonus feat at a level that the fighter does not get a bonus feat on.

This book could have been, dare I say SHOULD have been, so much more.


Great Flavor, Great Options

*****

While I usually like some sections of the player companion line, I very rarely like all of them. This is the rare exception. Excellent character options, monsters, and spells throughout.


3rd party stuff is better

*( )( )( )( )

For a game based on Dungeons and Dragons you would expect more dragons stuff and here it comes, but beware.

This book is chalk full of poorly done work. If someone submitted these archetypes in the RPG superstar they would be bashed and ridiculed. So how could paizo make a book they charge people for and put there name on it? There is one with the obvious error of replacing a feature it does not have. The others replace key features highly needed for the class with garbage. These seem like someone that just started playing the game and did not understand the class well made.

But you can have a drake pet! To bad it is poorly done too! You have to convince to not endanger itself or not be lazy. Someone tried to thematically write how to limit the equipment they can have, and honestly is very horribly done. So they are excited to get treasure but will one wear one magical ring or amulet?!?!!? That is dumb at best. It already has other limitations why pile on stupid ones?

This is the worst Book I purchased from Paizo. Honestly I feel people love dragons so much they reviewed it much higher than it deserves.
