How does Leveldrain affect mythic creatures?

If you have a mythic tier and are affected by a level draining effect, does this affect your mythic tier?
What, if your are hit by a level draining mythic creature?


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

"Level Drain" doesn't exist in Pathfinder, and hasn't per se for quite some time. If you're using something like the old Level Drain rules, you're on your own.

Negative Levels, on the other hand, are a stacking penalty effect that knocks off hit points, reduces most rolls, and when they exceed your level, you die. Right now, Tiers and Levels are separate, so they don't interact.

Yep, sorry, I meant negative levels.

Anyway, so tiers are not affected. And if a mythic vampire bestows negative levels on you, will tiers be affected in any way?


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Again, right now, no. This being a playtest, that's subject to change and could be clarified later or dealt with in the final version.

Unstoppable should allow you to remove the negative levels

Negative levels do not remove tiers. Maybe a mythic vampire could temporarily reduce mythic power?

Yep a level 2 mythic tier 1 still dies at 2 negative levels.
