The slotless wondrous items page http://paizo.com/pathfinderRPG/prd/ultimateEquipment/wondrousItems/slotless .html would be a lot more useful if item names in the table were links.


1 person marked this as a favorite.

I love the appearance, and the content.
But for my purposes, the PRD is essentially non-functional. I can't use it at the table, and when I'm designing encounters it costs me more time than it saves me.

Say I just need to find out what a spell does. OK, I need to open the main link for each book, then navigate to the spell index, then hope to find the spell. I need to do this for every single book listed, so if it's in one of the later ones, I'm likely to give up first.

"Kirth, you fool!" people say. "Just use the SEARCH function!"

Heh. Try this: type the word "bard" into the search field, and see how long it takes you to find the link to the actual Bard class?


It's the fifth item on the list. And if you search "Bard Class", it's the first. But I certainly get what you're saying, and feel the same way at times. Much trickier on the phone / tablet, when you can't just open multiple pages in multiple tabs quickly.


I am currently having an issue with the PRD from my laptop's browser. I get sent to the introduction page but cannot navigate the PRD, the only links available take me away from the PRD. When I go to the PRD from my phone I get to the same introduction page, but I have a list button that allows me to navigate the PRD.

This might be because I am restricted to an older browser on my laptop, but I thought I would mention it.

It may very well be that those devices just don't support parts the newer elements used in the PRD (particularly CSS3 and jQuery). Some brief googling leads me to believe a bit of both. Unfortunately I don't have any similar devices in the office to properly test this, though.

Absolutely agreed! I also think our item index could use some love and updates from UE. We'll see what happens :)

Kirth, if you're looking for Bard spells in particular, you may want to use the Spell List Index maybe? You can also filter out spells by book on either index. I certainly can understand your issue, and cleaning up some of the IDs used for search is something I very much want to see happen. It's an ongoing effort.

What browser and version are you using on your laptop? If it's IE8, you may be viewing in Compatibility View, which you can toggle by clicking the "broken" page icon in the address bar.

Bummer. I can see it all in the SRD, but that page is just ponderous.


Some creatures in B4 index have typo and dead link.

Found an error in a table:
Ultimate Equipment
Gear/Tools and Crafting Kits
Alchemy Crafting Kit
Weight is listed as 50 lbs in both the table and the item text.

My APG print is showing 5 lbs, as is Herolab.

Although I did notice in my print version of Ultimate Equipment that it is also showing 50 lbs... so maybe that's a better question for the errata threads?

Veiwing the Skill Descriptions table from the Core Rulebook, on a Windows Phone (8.1), the table only shows the first few entries (down to Climb), and does not appear to be scrollable.

30 seconds.


The lack of an 'always-visible' menu bar still makes the PRD unusable.

It was much better before the changes.

I am using Internet Explorer 8.0.7601.17514. Clicking on the broken link just seems to reload the page back to the introduction page. I've tried clicking it several times and it always reloads back to the introduction page that I cannot navigate away from.

I love the new site but i think that the worst aspect of the game now is feat and class power selection. They are spread out through a ton of books and the feat index is no offense but it is completely useless. I want to know all the feats that modify channel energy ability, what can I do using the PRD? heck I want to see all the cleric domains available, well I have to look through like 5 books to do so. We need master class indexes where everything relevant to the class is in one location. And we need a master feat chart like the feat chart you get in every book only comprehensive and updated. Because as it is right now it sucks to make a character unless you limit yourself to one or two books.

When searching the PRD for ''haunting choir'', the first result is titled "Haunting Choir" but its content is ''haunting mists'' and its URL is http://paizo.com/pathfinderRPG/prd/ultimateMagic/spells/hauntingMists.html# haunting-mists. Seems like the spell title is wrong there, as ''haunting choir'' is at http://paizo.com/pathfinderRPG/prd/ultimateMagic/spells/hauntingChoir.html# haunting-choir and comes up second in the search.

Figure it can't hurt to point you in this direction: A thread i started yesterday that is at least marginally related


Hey, noticed that http://paizo.com/pathfinderRPG/prd/ultimateEquipment/gear/adventuringGear.h tml#grappling-hook
has the price of 1,0001 g for a mithril grappling-hook. Guessing from other mithril items that this should be 1,001g


Might I suggest making they hyperlink text at the top of the page (E.G. PRD Home/Getting Sarted) Be in red instead of the grey it currently is. It would make them stand out more.

Also, I'm still really confused as to why the large watermark in the top left corner of the page directs the user away from the PRD, and what the point of the homepage is.

It has it's pros and cons. I think that if the site had a more robust index system (Feat Tree Index, Domain/Subdomain Index, Trait Index, better bestiary indices, etc.), this issue would be mostly resolved. I don't always use/allow every published book at a table, and having material sorted by book makes it very easy for players and DMs to limit their searches to allowed sources.


So I'm reading over the downtime rules in Ultimate Campaign on the PRD and I noticed an issue with one of the links. If I'm in one of the subpages,"Downtime Activities", "Managers", "Rooms and Teams Buildings" or "Organizations Downtime Events" and I click on downtime at the top of the page.(not the sidebar)

The link is
http://paizo.com/pathfinderRPG/prd/ultimateEquipment/downtime.html

Which of course doesn't work.
