It's definitely a requirement that it be a single, lone attack to get the 1.5x bonus. Reference any creature with 2 claws.
From Chopswil over in the Core Rulebook errata thread:
The Prerequisite entry is the wrong one (in bothe Empower and Quicken), since it lists the minimum CL for 1st level spell-like abilities rather than the minimum CL for 0 level ones.But more than listing the minimum CL for 0 level, it'd be best to list the prerequisite as "Spell-like ability at appropriate or higher CL (see table below)."
The listed +8 racial to Climb seem to be in addition to the normal +8 granted by having a climb speed (for a total of +16 racial, that added to the +4 Str gives +20, as in the stat block).Of course, it'd be better if it is specified clearly.
There's also an issue with Stealth. It is not listed but should (virtually, since I understand the space is limited).
Stealth +2* (+6 in webs)
* (+2 Dex, +4 racial, -4 size)
For Climb: same as above.
For Stealth: the "situational" racial modifier is not added to the base racial modifier, but overlaps it, so in the end the Tarantula only gets an additional +4 when in webs. -7 +4 = -3.
About the prerequisite multiattack feat, "three or more natural attacks"... does it mean three different types or three at all? I mean, a monster with one bite and two hooves, counts as having three attacks or two, for what Multiattack requires?
Titan, Elysian, page 266
The Maul of the Titans attack is listed as having a 17-20 critical range. Where is it from?

There was a discussion about this; I believe it was renamed "Charisma Drain" in the main text, but not in the stat block.
Undine, page 275
Other than already reported issues...
1) Saving throws: Ref is listed as +3, but should be +2 (+0 base, +2 Dex).
2) Skipping the fact that the Undine has the Weapon Focus (heavy mace) feat, and yet uses a trident...

Oh wow, you've opened up a can here. I went through the first Bestiary and looked at each creature that powerfully charges in that book. A definite pattern was discovered: all creatures deal double damage dice and 2x Strength damage*.
Bestiary 2 and 3 throw this pattern out the window and seem to assign the most arbitrary values. Some just deal a little extra bonus damage, some add more damage dice, some just seem to copy/paste the (4d8+24) from the example text in this ability's entry in the UMR at the back of the book. I'm not sure what happened during the design phase, but I'm thinking of converting all of these creatures to the standard the "core" bestiary implies.
*The exception being the minotaur and half-fiend minotaur, which "mistakenly" deal 1.5x since their gore is treated as a secondary attack with their manufactured weapons, which is a moot point since they don't have the pounce special ability and would only be able to use their powerful charge natural weapon only.
Megafauna, Arsinoitherium - pg. 186
Several pieces of evidence point to the gore damage being incorrect for this guy:
1) Even though animal companions work differently than standard creatures, the fact that even the Large, animal companion version of this guy only deals 2d8 while this guy seems to do double that no problem is odd.
2) The powerful charge ability for this guy is still 4d8 (the same as normal), even though almost all creatures with this ability deal double damage dice than normal when using it. (and while we're on the subject, if going by how monsters in the first bestiary calculated their powerful charge damage, this guy would deal 4d8+18 with this ability, not +24)
3) This guy's trample is only 2d8, and without a slam attack trample would have to be based off this guy's only attack, his gore.
Basically it looks like this creature's gore damage should be (2d8+13).
Megafauna, Megaloceros - pg. 187
Doesn't mention which attack actually deals the powerful charge damage. It's obviously the gore attack, but it should say.
Also if this guy followed the formula for damage that the creatures from the first Bestiary followed, his powerful charge damage would be (4d6+10).
Herd Animal, Ram - Pg. 154
Not technically an error since we don't have an exact formula to go by, but for this creature's powerful charge ability, if you were to calculate the damage the same way every creature in the first Bestiary calculates its powerful charge damage, instead of (1d8+3) it'd be (2d4+4)
Edit: Same for its Animal Companion stats
Vemerak, page 278
About the Spore Cloud ability, since it activates as the Vemerak moves, it is unclear wether the affected area is the one centered on the space where the Vemerak starts its movement (as I would suppose), the one where it ends its move, or every space that would be touched by its aura during the entire movement.
Witchfire, page 284
Other than already reported issues...
1) The Witchfire Covens description says that the spell-like abilities' DCs are based on a Charisma score of 16, but among them are Waves of Exhaustion and Fire Storm, which, respectively, are level 7 and 8; shouln't the minimum Charisma score to use them both be 18?
2) Since the Witchflame can be removed by Break Enchantment and Remove Curse, I think it should be labeled as a curse effect. Just in case a target is immune to curses.
Worm That Walks, page 286
Other than already reported issues...
1) Minor typo: in the Creating a Worm That Walks section, under the Type entry, "discorporate" has been spelled "discorperate".
2) A bit of trouble with the Engulf thing.
3) Discorporate special ability: it is not specified which size the worms of the swarm are (Fine size, I suppose).
Worm That Walks, page 286
Maybe it should be mentioned that the template can be added to any corporeal and living evil spellcasting creature.
Xtabay, page 289
Flat-footed AC is listed as 10, but should be 11 (+1 size).
Zombie, Juju, page 291
Distant Scholar wrote:
Is a Juju Zombie supposed to keep its human traits (bonus feat, bonus skill points, favored class bonuses)? I can't see anything that says it loses them, but the stat block doesn't seem to use them.
It should, as per other templated human charcters; for the issues below, I assumed that it does. (Besides, through reverse-math of the sample stat block, either the Human's bonus skill points or the favored class bonus skill points may seem to have been used in assigning skill ranks.)
1) Excluding the two bonus feats granted by the template, the Human Juju Zombie should have 3 feats (one for 1st level, one for being Human, and one from the rogue talents). But it only has two.
2) The Type entry in the template description should mention "It gains the augmented subtype. Do not recalculate BAB, saves, or skill ranks."
3) The Armor Class entry in the template description says a Juju Zombie gains a +3 natural armor bonus "over" the base creature's natural armor bonus. An unusual wording; is that "over" meant to be "in addition to" or "in place of"?
4) CMD is listed as 19, but should be 20 (10, +1 BAB, +4 Str, +4 Dex, +1 dodge).
5) The sample Juju Zombie doesn't have any favored class bonus.
6) Total skill points (favored class excluded) are (8 base, -1 Int, +1 Human) x 2 HD = 16.
Doing the math with listed skill bonuses...
Acrobatics +8 (1 rank, +4 Dex, +3 class)
Adding ranks up, it makes a total of 15; there's 1 unused skill point.
Astral Wanderer wrote:
Based on the description of Covens (found on the Green Hag's page in the first bestiary), it should absolutely have a a higher Charisma score, since it says the coven operates off of Cha 16 or the hag with the highest Cha, whichever is higher. The witchfire itself has Cha 25. The CL though still remains an issue.
There seems to be something off about the Wood Giant (p. 132) - besides the longbow and skill ranks: Its ranged attack bonuses for the longbow seems too low. Let's see:
+6 (BAB) +5 (DEX) -1 (Size) +1 (Masterwork) = +11
So the Wood Giant should have a slightly higher ranged attack bonus:
Ranged mwk composite longbow +11/+11/+6 (2d6+5/×3)
Actually it's correct as written. Notice how +9 is listed twice? That's because it's using its Rapid Shot feat, which incurs a -2 penalty on all ranged attacks.
Astral Wanderer wrote:
I mentioned this on the B3 errata thread about the grave knight, but I think that that bonus would only apply for CMB rolls made in conjunction with a weapon attack (like a trip weapon making a trip maneuver).
While I haven't checked it in detail yet, let me just thank the folks at Paizo for the newest Bestiary 2 errata document. The thing is intimidatingly huge, which gives me hope (and curious glee) that it incorporated many of the things we've pointed out in this thread. Congratulations to everyone who had a hand in it, both paizo employee and paizo fans.
Pg. 10 - Aeon, Bythos
The errata (and presumably the 2nd printing) had the fly skill changed from "+8" to "+6", but let's take a look:
Bluff +26 = 5(Cha) + 3(class) + 18 ranks
So ignoring Fly for the meantime, we've used 229 of our 234 ranks, with 5 leftover. Naturally we could assume that those 5 would go into Fly, resulting in:
The errata, however, says it should be +6:
It clearly meant for Fly to not have any ranks at all. So what happened to those extra 5 ranks? Let's take a look at the extension of all ability. It grants aeons half their HD as a bonus to Knowledge checks. Notice how all the Knowledge skills are an oddball 17 ranks instead of 18? Notice how there's exactly 5 Knowledge skills with ranks put into them? It seems like extension of all was incorrectly calculated using half this creature's CR (16) instead of its HD (18) which would result in a +8 bonus instead of +9 bonus, resulting in these skills mistakenly being calculated with 18 ranks.
TL;DR version: Either Fly should be +14, or it should be +6 like the errata says and all 5 Knowledge skills should receive an extra rank since extension of all was calculated by halving the CR instead of the creature's HD like its supposed to.
The new errata has confused me. On page 3, it says "Page 73—In the Daemon, Purrodaemon stat block, [snipped]. In the Melee entry, change “+2 wounding halberd +32/+27/+22/+17 2d8+18/19–20/×3” to “+2 wounding halberd 2d8+18/19–20/×3”."
Why? Sure enough, the PRD and latest PDF both list an attack with this weapon but with the to-hit bonusses removed. As near as I can tell, they were correct before. What happened?
On page 3 of the errata document:
A) This makes the perception under the Skills entry different from the perception under the Senses entry.
B) "+28" appears to me to be correct.
Page 3 of errata:
+7 was correct. This change appears to go with the observed-but-never-codified (to my knowledge) rule of Tiny creatures using their DexMod for some movement based skills instead of Strength.
8 has swim speed -1 StrMod = +7
Page 4 of errata:
The snipped data that follows adjusts CMB and CMD for the new lower Strength score, but there's no correction to the creature's offensive statistics. They all remain intact as if the Strength is 27.
Errata was simply fixing it since it originally was linked to Strength and not Dex.
The following list is a compilation of all errors reported in this thread that the errata didn't include. These are, to the best of the board users' knowledge, erroneous bits of information. Those bits that are preceded by a double asterisk (**) are issues that either the errata tried to fix but didn't fully, or issues that have arrisen because of the errata. Anyone who feels any of these are not in fact errors, please speak up. Lastly, because of the mathmatical nature of many of these errors, calculations have been (mostly) not included in order to present these as cleanly as possible.
Remaining Bestiary 2 errata:
Pg. 7 - Achaierai, Skills, the Fly skill value seems to be wrong. All of the creature's 42 skill ranks are used by its other skills, leaving 0 ranks + 1(Dex) - 2(size) = -1. With no fly speed listed, the rules state to assume a maneuverability of average, leaving us a +0 bonus to Fly. Actually, listing Fly at all is peculiar, as with no natural or regularly reliable means of flight, by the rules this creature wouldn't be able to put ranks into this skill at all, any way.
Pg. 10 - Bythos aeon, spell-like abilities, plane shift should be DC 22 instead of DC 20. It WOULD be 20 if it were treated as a cleric casting the spell, but sorcerer/wizard comes first, making this 22. You'll see this happen a lot as plane shift gets miscalculated the most throughout this book.
Pg. 12 - Pleroma aeon, Fly skill should be reduced from "+16" to "+14". It has 0 ranks put into it, as all 336 ranks are cleanly put into the other skills:
Pg. 14 - Theletos aeon, Spell-Like Abilities, 3/day subentry, change the DC of bestow curse from "14" to "15".
Pg. 18 - Draconal agathion, change the DC of hold monster from "20" to "21". (10 + 6[Cha] + 5[spell level] = 21)
Pg. 21 - Silvanshee agathion, Skills, Fly should be changed from "+6" to "+10". All other skill points have been used in other skills, leaving us with 4(maneuverability) + 4(size) + 2(Dex) = +10
Pg. 23 - (MAY NOT BE AN ERROR) The void death disease has a Fort save DC of 12, which at first glance seems like it should be changed to 14 (10 + 1[half HD] + 3[Con]). Based on the description, however, it sounds like this disease isn't transmitted via the actual bite itself, but rather by the tiny larval young living in its mouth (by another creature, in other words). This may mean the DC 12 is not erroneous, but it could also be flavor text and this should still be changed to DC 14.
Pg. 24 - (MAY NOT BE AN ERROR) It seems as though the amoeba swarm should have the aquatic subtype, like its giant cousin.
Pg. 27 - Monadic deva angel, Spell-Like Abilities, At Will subentry, plane shift should have its DC changed from "19" to "21" since when figuring out save DCs for spell-like abilities that are on multiple class' spell lists, sorcerer/wizard comes before cleric
**Pg. 28 - Movanic deva angel, Skills, the errata says to change Perception from "+20" to "+26" and Sense Motive from "+16" to "+22", when that appears to be too high an increase (albeit an increase was needed). Based on the other skills, a full 12 ranks were put into each skill, meaning:
Pg. 32 - Star archon, Melee, the attack bonuses for the +5 holy starknife should all be increased by 1:
Pg. 33 - Athach, Melee, the heavy mace can be used two-handed if not using any slams, changing the damage to "(3d6+16)"
**Pg. 36 - Axiomite, Melee, errata says to change the longsword damage from +6 to +7. Not really certain what this is referring to, since the melee line says:
Pg. 37 - Brijidine Azata, has both resistance to cold and vulnerability to cold
**Pg. 42 - Skaveling, Skills, the errata changed this creature's flight maneuverability from average to good, which means its Fly skill needs to change from "+13" to "+17".
Pg. 46 - Blindheim, Skills, though it has no ranks in it, "Climb +9" may want to be listed simply because of its +8 bonus from having a Climb speed, which usually warrants mentioning a skill with no ranks in a stat block.
Pg. 47 - Blink dog, Skills, has a +4 bonus to Survival when tracking by scent, but the source of this bonus is unknown. Possibly an unlisted racial modifier.
Pg. 63 - Astradaemon, Spell-like Abilities, 1/day subentry, energy drain should be changed from "DC 24" to "DC 26" (10 + 9[level] + 7[Cha])
**Pg. 66 - Derghodaemon, Skills, errata said to add a +4 racial bonus to Perception checks, which is fine, but the bonus to Perception is still too high:
Pg. 67 - Hydrodaemon, CMB, change "(+9 grapple)" to "(+19 grapple)".
**Pg. 70 - Olethrodaemon, errata added "(58 vs. trip) to the end of the CMD entry, but really the base CMD should be increased by 4, presumably because the bonus from unholy aura hasn't been added in:
**Pg. 73 - Purrodaemon, Melee, the errata is all over the place when trying to describe how to fix this. What it should say is:
Pg. 80 - Shemhazian demon, Skills, Fly should be changed from "+2" to "+9". It left out the +7 bonus from adding 1/2 the caster level from the constant fly spell-like ability. It's likely the official ruling will be to delete fly from the list of spell-like abilities, turning its flight supernatural in nature instead, leaving the "Fly +2" currently in the stat block correct.
Pg. 82 - Denizen of Leng, Spell-Like Abilities, 1/day subentry, the DC for plane shift should be changed from "+20" to "+22".
Pg. 83 - Destrachan, Skills, Perception should be changed from "+27" to "+19 (+27 hearing)".
Pg. 85 - Belier devil, Spell-like abilities, 1/day subentry, the DC for plane shift should be changed from "22" to "24".
**Pg. 90 - Allosaurus, Skills, errata says to boost Perception from "+28" to "+30", but it's unclear why, since the math doesn't seem to add up:
Pg. 96 - Adult cloud dragon, defense block, because adult dragons have a natural armor bonus equal to 15 + base (5,in this case), its AC should be changed from "29" to "27", its flat-footed AC changed from "+29" to "+27", and its natural armor bonus changed from "+22" to "+20".
Pg. 98 - (basic) crystal dragon stat block, razor sharp ability, may not be an error, but it's suspicious that this is a Spell-like ability and not an extraordinary ability. It seems clear that the creature's crystalline formations that make up its body grant it this ability, and down right strange to picture it losing this ability in an antimagic field
Pg. 98 - Adult crystal dragon, Spell-Like Abilities, change "concentration +18" to "concentration +19" (13[CL] + 6[Cha])
**Pg. 100 - Young magma dragon, Melee, errata said to lower Strength but didn't say all that gets changed with that. Melee should be changed to:
Pg. 103 - Ancient umbral dragon, immunities, should have "cold" listed under its immunities, like its younger versions.
Pg. 118 - (MAY NOT BE AN ERROR) Small magma elemental, Melee damage is 1d3 when all other small elementals use a d4. When this thing hits Medium size, it jumps to a d6. It's possible "1d3" is an error and should be "1d4".
Pg. 127 - Fungal Crawler, skills, they have a racial modifier of +14 on Acrobatics checks made to jump, but in their skills entry, it says "Acrobatics +10 (+14 jumping)". Either the racial modifier should actually be +8 (because they have a base speed of 20 ft., incuring a -4 penalty to such checks), or skill line should say "Acrobatics +10 (+20 jumping)".
**Pg. 128 - Gar, AC entry, errata says to lower touch AC from "13" to "12", but touch AC is listed as "11", so it should be raised to "12". The "13" likely resulted from the errata author mistakenly looking at the AC value instead of touch AC.
Pg. 129 - (MAY NOT BE AN ERROR) Marsh giant, ranged, the UMR states that thrown rocks deal damage equal to twice the creature's slam damage plus 1.5 times their Strength modifier. If this is the case, then like the Athach before it "(2d6+9)" should be changed to "(2d6+12)".
Pg. 131 - (MAY NOT BE AN ERROR) Taiga giant, ranged, see marsh giant above, except adjusted thrown rock damage would be "(2d8+15)" instead.
Pg. 132 - Wood giant, ranged, change "mwk longbow" to "mwk composite longbow".
**Pg. 133 - Gloomwing, the errata says to raise Perception from "+8" to "+9". Don't forget to make the same change above in the creature's Senses entry.
Pg. 148 - Grindylow, CMD, nevermind the flavor text mentions this thing looks like an octopus below the waist (infering 8 tentacles), this creature's picture and tangling tentacles ability both describe it as having 6 tentacles. Its CMD of 12 says its 18 vs. trip, implying it has 5 tentacles total. This should probably say "CMD 12 (20 vs. trip)".
Pg. 151 - Gug, Skills, technically not an error, but it doesn't make sense that this aberration wouldn't choose its one and only Knowledge skill it has ranks in as its free-aberration-Knowledge-class skill. Knowledge (dungeoneering) would go from "+10" to "+13".
Pg. 153 - Hellcat, Melee, claws have an improved critical range of 19-20, but no Improved Critical feat or any similar ability allowing it.
Pg. 154 - (MAY NOT BE AN ERROR) Ram, Special Attacks, all creature from Bestiary 1 with the powerful charge ability calculate damage the same way (with the exception of the minotaur and by extension the half-fiend minotaur): double damage dice + (Str mod x2). If this formula were to be applied to this creature, "1d8+3" would change to "2d4+4". This change would/should then be reflected in the animal companion statistics, as well.
**Pg. 157 - Hippopotamus, hp entry, errata says to change the hp from "66 (7d8+35)" to "59 (7d8+28)" when that still appears to be too high. With only a Con score of 16, the total added to 7d8 would be "+21" (3 x 7) resulting in a total hp of 52. The extra +7 to hp either came from this creature being treated as having a higher Con score or mistakenly factoring in a nonexistant Toughness feat.
**Pg. 160 - Ifrit, Sorcerer Spells Known, 1st-level spells subentry, the errata says to change "burning hands" to "burning hands (DC 15)", but the only 1st-level spells listed in the Sorcerer Spells Known section are mage armor and magic missile. The only mention of burning hands is in the Ifrit Spell-Like Abilities section above, and it has the correct DC of 14 listed (it isn't elligible for the bonus from Fire Affinity).
Pg. 163 - Kolyarut inevitable, Spell-Like Abilities entry, 3/day subentry lists a quickened suggestion spell-like ability. Unfortunately at CL 12 this creature doesn't qualify, and would need to be CL 14 to be able to apply this feat to this spell-like ability. The feat granting this ability needs to be changed, as well.
**Pg. 164 - Lhaksharut inevitable, CMD, errata says to change "45" to "50", presumably because it neglected to add the +5 insight bonus it receives to AC from its perfect prediction ability. It should actually be raised to "54", as it receives an additional +4 from the deflection bonus to AC it enjoys from its constant shield of law spell-like ability
Pg. 166 - Marut inevitable, Spell-Like Abilities section, 1/week subentry, plane shift's DC should be changed from "22" to "24".
**Pg. 167 - Zelekhut inevitable, Spell-Like Abilities section, 1/week subentry, the errata mistakenly refers to this subentry as "1/day" instead of "1/week" and lists lesser geas's original, incorrect DC as "18" instead of "16". Either way it should be changed to "17" as the errata instructs.
**Pg. 168 - Jabberwock, melee entry, the errata fixed the bite attack's issue with the Str bonus to damage and the crit range, but the crit multiplier for the bite attack is still unusually high at x3 with no immediate explanation as to how it's possible.
Pg. 170 - Jellyfish, Special Abilities, Poison, Fort save DC should be changed from "17" to "20" (10 + 4[half HD] + 6[Con] = 20).
**Pg. 171 - Jyoti, Treasure entry, the errata fixed the melee entry for this creature to reflect that its Positive Energy ability lets it treat its weapons as if they were ghost touch weapons. What's strange is the errata also makes this change in its treasure entry, insinuating that this creature is carrying around ghost touch weapons when its positive energy ability confers this automatically.
Pg. 173 - Korred, Ranged, rock throwing rules state that the damage adds 1.5 times the Str mod, meaning "1d6+4" would change to "1d6+6".
Pg. 175 - Lamia Matriarch, wisdom drain ability, the fourth sentence, the one saying a lamia matriarch does not heal damage when she uses Wisdom drain unlike other kinds of ability drain, can be deleted. The ability drain ability says nothing about allowing those that can do it to heal damage, only specific creatures get this added benefit.
Pg. 180 - Lurker in the Light, Spell-Like Abilities section, 3/day subentry, blindness/deafness DC should be changed from "16" to "15".
Pg. 181 - Werebear (human form), special qualities should include "wild empathy +3".
Pg. 181 - Werebear (hybrid form), where to begin? Let me start by saying it seems the Bestiary 2 errata has made a decision about the lycanthropy size issue (there was some debate about what exactly happens to the equipment on a creature that transforms into a larger hybrid form. Logic suggested that armor gets destroyed under the stress and that weapons take a penalty to use due to being suddenly inappropriately sized). It seems the errata has declared these things grow somehow magically with the rest of the creature. The errata changed the battleaxe damage to reflect this, presumably, but it didn't increase the throwing axe's damage dice. The throwing axe should have gotten the same treatment, increasing its damage dice from "1d6" to "1d8".
Pg. 182 - Wereboar (hybrid form), AC entry, the lycanthropy rules in Bestiary 1 say that the hybrid form gains a natural armor bonus like that of the base animal + 2. A boar has a natural armor bonus of +4, adding 2 the hybrid form would have a natural armor bonus of +6. The end result for the AC line would be this:
**Pg. 183 - Weretiger (hybrid form), hp should be changed to "41 (4d8+20)". This is different than what the errata reported. More on that below.
Pg. 184 - Magma ooze, lava body ability says when an attack strikes a magma ooze with a weapon, the weapon takes damage unless the attacker makes a Fortitude saving throw. It seems odd that an attacker's fortitude would extend to the weapon it wields. It seems more likely a Reflex save would be in order rather than a Fort save.
**Pg. 186 - Arsinoitherium, the powerful charge was reduced to "4d8+13" in the errata. This is odd because this is the exact same damage as the standard gore attack. Its likely the errata meant to alter the gore damage but forgot, because 4d8 seems extremely high for the standard gore attack. This case is driven home further when you look at the animal companion version of this creature. The Medium creature has a 1d8 gore, and then when it jumps to Large (the same size as the standard creature) it increases to 2d8. Yes, animal companion versions of creatures differ from their standard versions, but this seems like a crazy leap in difference.
Pg. 187 - Megaloceros, not technically an error, but like our friend the arsinoitherium above, if this creature's powerful charge ability were to be calculated like his buddies from Bestiary 1, its damage would be changed from "4d6+7" to "4d6+10".
Pg. 188 - Mercane, Spell-Like Abilities, 1/day subentry, the DC for plane shift should change from "17" to "19".
**Pg. 189 - Saltwater merrow, the errata says to change hp from "73 (7d8+42)" to "80 (7d8+49)" but it's hard to see where the +49 came from. Con modifier is +6, and 6 x 7 = 42. This creature doesn't have the Toughness feat or class levels to put a favored class bonus into.
**Pg. 197 - Neh-Thalggu, errata says to change CMD from "56" to "35". The change to "35" is correct, but the "56" came out of nowhere since the original value is "28".
Pg. 198 - Nereid, melee, touch attack should be changed from "+10" to "+15", unless the Weapon Finesse feat somehow doesn't affect this touch attack. If it doesn't, what is this creature doing with Weapon Finesse to begin with?
Pg. 200 - Nightcrawler, CMB should be changed from "+37 (+41 grapple)" to "+39 (+43 grapple)". 18(BAB) + 15(Str) + 4(size) + 2(desecrating aura) = 39. Don't forget if the combat maneuver involves using the creature's natural attacks at all, it increases another +1, thanks to the creature's constant magic fang spell-like ability.
Pg. 201 - Nightwalker, CMB should be changed from "+29" to "+31". 15(BAB) + 12(Str) + 2(size) + 2(desecrating aura) = 31. Don't forget if the combat maneuver involves using the creature's natural attacks at all, such as when using its swift sunder ability, it increases another +1, thanks to the creature's constant magic fang spell-like ability.
Pg. 202 - Nightwave, CMB should be changed from "+48 (+52 grapple)" to "+50 (+54 grapple)". 21(BAB) + 19(Str) + 8(size) + 2(desecrating aura) = 50. Don't forget if the combat maneuver involves using the creature's natural attacks at all, it increases another +1, thanks to the creature's constant magic fang spell-like ability.
Pg. 203 - Nightwing, CMB should be changed from "+24" to "+26". 12(BAB) + 10(Str) + 2(size) + 2(desecrating aura) = 26. Don't forget if the combat maneuver involves using the creature's natural attacks at all, it increases another +1, thanks to the creature's constant magic fang spell-like ability.
**Pg. 205 - Oread, errata tells you to change "elemental affinity" to "earth affinity". Don't forget to do so as well in the Special Qualities entry.
Pg. 211 - Poltergeist, feats, "Ability Focus (fear)" should be "Ability Focus (frightener)".
Pg. 212 - Monkey swarm, skills, change "Climb +10" to "Climb +15". Tiny creatures use Dex for Climb, not Str.
Pg. 214 - Imentesh protean, creatures with detect law as a constant spell-like ability usually have it listed in their Senses line.
Pg. 215 - Keketar protean, creatures with detect law as a constant spell-like ability usually have it listed in their Senses line.
Pg. 219 - Augnagar qlippoth, descriptive flavor text, the description beneath the name of the creature at the top of the page mentions the creature has eight legs, but the picture and the CMD vs. trip all suggest it has six legs.
Pg. 221 - Cythnigot qlippoth, Skills, Fly should be changed from "+15" to "+17". All skills got 3 ranks, so:
Pg. 225 - Shoggti qlippoth, Languages entry should include the constant tongues spell-like ability.
Pg. 226 - Thulgant qlippoth, Skills, Fly skill should be changed from "+33" to "+37". After adding up all other skills except Fly, we're left with 20 ranks, the full amount allowed, to be put into Fly:
Pg. 230 - Red Wyrm Ravener, this creature is based off of a red wyrm dragon, who has a Dex of 6. The ravener template doesn't increase Dex at all, so it's Dex score should be changed from "8" to "6". This affects a number of things:
Pg. 237 - Sard, special abilities, poison, though it should be obvious, the Poison entry should mention that the save DC is Constitution-based.
Pg. 241 - Scylla, Skills, not technically an error, but it seems odd this aberration wouldn't choose the one and only Knowledge skill it put ranks into as its pick-one-Knowledge-skill to be a class skill, in this case Knowledge (nature).
Pg. 243 - Seugathi, Melee, the bite is this creature's one and only natural attack, meaning it would normally get 1.5 times the Str mod to damage. Because it's wielding a weapon as well, however, it's treated as a secondary attack and only gets half the Str mod to damage. Change "(1d8+4 plus poison)" to "(1d8+1 plus poison)".
**Pg. 245 - Shining child, Spell-Like Abilities, 3/day subentry, the errata instructed the raising of the save DC for the wrong spell. The errata instructed raising rainbow pattern from "20" to "22", but 10 + 7(Cha) + 4(level) = 21, like the stat block says. Mirage pattern before it, was the intended culprit. 10 + 7(Cha) + 5(level) = 22, not the "20" as what is currently in the stat block.
Pg. 247 - Siren, Special Abilities, Bardic Performance, this ability allows a siren to use bardic performance as a 4th-level bard, but then says "9 rounds/day". A 4th-level bard, however, with a Charisma of 21, can use bardic performance 15 rounds/day.
Pg. 249 - Slime mold, Senses entry should include "blindsight 60 ft."
**Pg. 250 - Slithering Tracker, Racial Modifiers, the errata says to boost the racial bonus to Stealth from "+4" to "+8", which is correct, as per their Transparent ability. The errata also said to raise the Stealth skill itself, although this wasn't necessary. 4(ranks) + 4(Small) + 8(race) + 3(Skill Focus) = 19.
Pg. 254 - Soul Eater, Skills, this creature has a random, unexplained -12 penalty to Acrobatics checks made to jump and a +8 bonus to Stealth checks in darkness or smoke. It's likely these are racial modifiers that were not mentioned.
Pg. 256 - Giant black widow spider, skills, racial modifiers mention a bonus to Stealth, so the main skill entry should probably include this skill, ranks or no ranks. Add "Stealth +2 (+6 in webs)".
Pg. 259 - Tendriculos, Special Attacks, swallow whole, AC should be changed from "15" to "16" (10 + 6[half natural AC]).
Pg. 260 - Tenebrous worm, Will save should be changed from "+8" to "+10". Looks like Iron Will wasn't factored in.
Pg. 261 - Tentamort, Special Abilities, Poison, the frequency simply says "2 rounds" which is a little confusing and nonsensical. It may have meant to say "frequency 1/round for 2 rounds."
Pg. 263 - (MAY NOT BE AN ERROR) Thrasfyr, special attacks, powerful charge, as mentioned before, all Bestiary 1 monsters with the powerful charge ability calculate the damage for it the same way (with the exception of the minotaur and by extension the half-fiend minotaur): double damage dice + (2x Str mod). If this were calculated this way, then "4d8+24" would be changed to "4d6+20".
Pg. 266 - Elysian titan, Melee, the maul of the titans has listed a 17-20 crit range, but there doesn't seem to be any source to this high crit range. The maul of the titans normally only threatens a critical hit on a natural 20.
**Pg. 267 - Thanatotic titan, Ranged, the errata makes a number of changes that they were correct to change, namely the higher attack bonus and the change in damage for the thrown rocks. Unfortunately it left in the iterative attacks with thrown rocks, which is impossible for this creature since it does not have the Quick Draw feat.
Pg. 268 - Giant toad, Skills, change Stealth from "+5" to "+1". The size penalty wasn't factored in.
Pg. 268 - Glacier toad, Senses, magical beasts typically have darkvision, but the glacier toad does not. This could technically not be an error, as the glacier toad may represent an exception to the rule, but it is worth mentioning.
Pg. 271 - The ice troll's battleaxe should list it as having a x3 crit multiplier.
Pg. 272 - Rock troll, special attacks, rend, change the damage from "1d6+9" to "1d6+10". Rend gets 1.5 times the Str mod to damage.
Pg. 273 - Snapping Turtle, Skills, change Swim from "+5" to "+7". Tiny creatures use Dex to modify Swim checks.
Pg. 274 - Twigjack, Feats, the Agile Maneuvers feat should be replaced by something else since it does nothing for this creature (Tiny creatures already use Dex to modify combat maneuvers instead of Str).
Pg. 276 - Urdefhan, Melee, the second bite attack listed is being used by itself, and because it's the creature's one and only natural attack, it would get 1.5 times the Str mod to damage. Change "(1d4+4 plus 2 Str)" to "(1d4+6 plus 2 Str)".
Pg. 277 - Vampiric Mist, CMB and CMD, it's odd that this creature doesn't have any CMB or CMD values. The misty form ability is likely the reason for this, it just doesn't specifically say so.
Pg. 278 - Vemerak, Special Abilities, Spore Cloud, third sentence states "When the vemerak moves, the mold exudes a cloud of spores in a 30-ft. radius". It's uncertain if this happens at the start of their move, the end of their move, or persists throughout their entire movement, affecting a 30 ft. radius from all squares they travel through.
Pg. 284 - Witchfire Covens description, sentences 2 and 3 list a number of spell-like abilities a hag coven gains if a witchfire is a part of it and says they are cast at CL 9th and based on a Charisma score of 16. The hag rules, however, state that hag covens operate off of a Charisma score of 16 OR the score of the hag with the highest Charisma. A witchfire has a Charisma of 25, but this may not be an error, as the description could be saying that witchfire hag covens aren't like normal covens, and that they operate at the lowest Charisma possible for covens, since witchfires aren't true hags. Regardless...
Pg. 287 - Worm that Walks, Discorporate supernatural ability, the ability says the creature collapses into a shapeles swarm of worms as a free action. It fails to mention specifically the exact size of the individual creatures that make up the swarm. It's likely Fine.
Pg. 289 - Xtabay, AC, flat-footed AC should be changed from "10" to "11".
Pg. 291 - Human Juju zombie, this creature doesn't appear to have the bonus feat for once being human factored in.
Pg. 302 - Split entry, if this ability was intended to work identically to the ability of the same name of the black pudding and ochre jelly from the first Bestiary, then somewhere in this description it should mention that an attack that splits a creature deals no damage to it, just the normal act of splitting the creature and dividing its current hit points among the two new creatures (rounded down).
Pg. 308 - Inevitable Subtype (from previous page), Truespeech subentry, this was probably unintentional, but because inevitables ONLY speak truespeech, they technically can't read at all.
Pg. 308 - Nightshade Subtype, Summon (Sp) subentry, second sentence says undead summoned cannot create spawn themselves, but it should probably broaden this to say they can't cast spells that summon either, otherwise another nightshade could be summoned and they could summon undead themselves.
Pg. 308 - Protean subtype, Change Shape subentry, currently there is a big issue with this ability, as each individual protean bases their change shape ability off of a specific polymorph spell to determine how it works. Many of the creature types listed in this description would be restricted from use by these spells, while others, like monstrous humanoid, ooze, and vermin, wouldn't be allowed at all. One poster, who I unfortunately can't find the name of currently, offered a revision to this description:
Pg. 310 - Empower Spell-Like Ability feat, one and only prerequisite for this feat is to cast spell-like abilities at caster level 6th or higher, but the table on page 311 says you can use this feat to empower 0-level spells as early as CL 4th, contradicting this.
Pg. 311 - Quicken Spell-Like Ability feat, one and only prerequisite for this feat is to cast spell-like abilities at caster level 10th or higher, but the table on page 311 says you can use this feat to quicken 0-level spells as early as CL 8th, contradicting this.
**Pg. 312 - Animal Companions Table, errata mentioned 3 additional animal companions to add to this list, but it missed one. Add "Giant Toad" to this list, with a page reference of "268".
Pg. 314 - Monsters by CR, CR 9 list, change every instance of "(Gargantuan)" to "(greater)".
Pg. 314 - Monsters by CR, CR 11 list, change every instance of "(Colossal)" to "(elder)".
Sorry Strife, I'm not following you... It should be linked to Strength (remaining +7), shouldn't it? Or has someone finally definitively answered the question of tiny creatures using Dexterity for Climb and Swim instead of Strength?
The text saying so is on page 131 of the first Bestiary, at the top under where it says "Familiar". True, it should be noted in a Special subentry under both the Climb and Swim skills in the Core Rulebook, but it doesn't. Further evidence that this is the case still (and not just a relic from a previous edition that sneaked its way in) is in the stat block of every Tiny or smaller creature in all 3 bestiaries, as their Climb and Swim skills are linked to Dex. Again, unfortunately that page reference I mentioned above is the only physical proof of the rule, but it's been upheld ever since.
EDIT: The text I was referring to specifically says "Small animals like these use Dexterity to modify Climb and Swim checks." The use of the words "Small animals" is an unfortunate choice, as it implies Small sized creatures of the animal type only. We know it's not Small, though, as every familiar listed after this is either Tiny or Diminutive, and we know it's not just animals, as the rule is applied to all Tiny and smaller creatures.
Fly should be +14
The original error was that the damage didn't list the "19-20/x3" of the critical; in the errata, it came out a little messy, with missing parentheses, the critical data listed as if it was present in the original version, and the correction bringing the worst error.True correction: just add "19-20/x3" to the damage. Nothing more.
Maybe they took my past suggestion (hah, failed save! You'll see when I get Dominate Person) of exchanging Alertness with Skill Focus (Perception), since the Allosaurus has no use for Sense Motive. That makes Perception +30, and yes, you'd have to change it in the Senses entry too, as well as you'd have to change the feat.
In addition to what Strife said:As of today (after seeing the rule applied erratically, which may mean "when whoever writes the monster remembers that rule"), I guess you can take that rule for confirmed (I've always done it), and thus all Tiny or smaller creatures do use Dex for Climb and Swim in place of Str.
About the errata:
Pleroma Aeon, page 12: it says "A pleroma can cast certain sorcerer/wizard spells as divine spells."
Avoral Agathion, page 16: I take it that True Seeing must also be added to the constant spell-like abilities.
And that +8 is also the correct one.
Leukodaemon Daemon, page 68: the bow to enlist in the Treasure and in the Ranged entries is a +1 composite longbow (+7 Str Bonus).
Handmaiden Devil, page 86: the Fly skill bonus should be +7 (+7 Dex), since there's no other number to bring it to the listed +14.
