I would like to request a sticky thread be created (not this one because I can't edit it after an hour), that would, in the first post, give a list of guides in this sub-forum.

In the thread we'll discuss which guides to include and which category they should be in - it would be a community project.

This is my no means a complete list...its just a start.

Also, if you are going to post a guide for this list, please have a discussion thread for said guide in the Advice forum so we can link to it. The guide can be off-site, but we need a discussion thread for it, please. Also somewhere in your guide please reference which books you use (Core, APG, ARG, UM, UC, etc...).

Here's I think what you were referring to: http://paizo.com/paizo/messageboards/paizoPublishing/pathfinder/pathfinderR PG/advice/variousOptimisationGuides

Oh, and as for this one, this is cool too. I hadn't spotted the barbarian guide, thanks.

Note there's an alchemist guide here: http://pathfinder.ogrehut.com/2010/07/alchemist-build-guide/

What does this mean? Can you sort by posts you've posted in?

Or does it mean using the Favorite button right below the Reply button?

You might not have noticed but after you post in a thread then that thread has a dot after it's name, also if you click the focus button then it shows you less posts (the ones you have posted in and some other although i am not sure what criteria are used for those)

A system that seems to be working in other areas to get around the time-limit on editing posts is to repost summary lists periodically. This thread would be an excellent candidate for this process if it grows longer. Also, the favorites tag is a good way to avoid losing links, as well as putting links in profiles.

I think Ogre has a guide to alchemists, or at least I've seen reference to it.

Here's where you can get Ogre's alchemist build if you want to include on this list.

I am eagerly looking for an Inquisitor guide book. I have a fun concept built, just looking for some spell advice for a melee focused Inquisitor!

Keep in mind that this was written during the playtest of the class and it has quite a few errors.

True, perhaps my search-fu is weak, I haven't found a reasonably up to date guide.

And wow, my quiet and very recent little guide made it into a thread :-)


Dottinf. As soon as I finish my barbarian guide, it will be linked.

Ugh why are there so many feats? It's like a centipede!


This should prove quite useful.

Trinam, why do you need to go through all the feats? All you need is Power Attack, Furious Focus, and then take Toughness with all your extra feats.

That can't happen, the forum doesn't allow you to edit your post after one hour.

Paizo really has one of the worst forums ever seen for a discussion about Role Playing Games...

If i am to speculate i have to say that it's an old forum or rather old forum code BUT they have done some attempts to make it better (the focus, favorites, the search engines somewhat improved).

I think eventually we will have to make "A guide to the guides part 2", to do an update eventually.


Oracle, Ninja, and Cavalier are the only classes that I've found no optimization guides for. Granted, Cavalier doesn't really interest me so I didn't spend much time looking. I spent a while looking for Oracle and Ninja. Though I guess we could build a good ninja just by looking at a rogue guide and putting a higher emphasis on Cha. Though a breakdown of the separate class features, especially ki powers, would be in order.

Well, I also didn't look for Antipaladin, but couldn't we just reverse everything (alignment wise) from a Paladin guide and be pretty close?

Speaking of a Paladin guide: Cryptic's Paladin Guide, Conversation Thread

Ahh, I see drothmal beat me to posting the Paladin guide. Oh well, now people are twice as likely to find it. : P

One of these days, when I'm done skewering dragons with my lance, I'll finally write that guide so people can finally see the 2 tons of awesome my class is...


It'd be interesting to also see some guides to Prestige Classes


I agree. One day I'll actually finish a design or two for prestige classes that I have in mind:

1. Arcane Archer Bard (Magician) - Magician archetype gives free bonus spells from other spell lists instead of Versatile Performance. So, free spells from advancement to use with Imbue Arrow (or indeed just archery in general), such as (1) Gravity Bow and (6) Antimagic Field.

2. Gnome Barbarian/Oracle Rage Prophet - Gnome Alternate Favored Class: +1/2 to Oracle's level for determining curse's effect. +Cha and +Con, two very important stats for a Rage Prophet. Take Lame curse, become immune to fatigue and exhaustion relatively quickly. As a barbarian, handy.

3. Halfling Rogue Assassin (Knife Expert) - Eventually take Underhanded and every relevant feat/talent. Betrayer feat from UC lets you attack as an immediate action with a successful diplomacy check. Full sneak attack damage with d8 progression. Nice evil character.

Sorry for the derailing, but not extremely irrelevant to an optimization thread. Carry on. : P
