I'm trying to figure out how I can get a specific wayfinder, but the rules and the way everything is written is not making any sense.
I would like a wayfinder that casts detect magic, and read magic. (nothing else).
As I read it, in what makes sense to me:
I must first buy a standard wayfinder (500g).
Then, I can use prestige, and "inherit" it. An inherited wayfinder can cast light and another ability of my choosing.
- This allows me to use read magic, in addition to light.
Then, I use prestige, and add discerning.
- This allows me to use detect magic, instead of light.
As I believe it should work; 500gp, and prestige. The way each section of each book reads, this isn't how it reads that it should work.
Each wayfinder upgrade section says you must first purchase a wayfinder, then upgrade it as follows...
Discerning says can be added to any existing wayfinder, but the description says this wayfinder can cast detect magic instead of light. Seems to imply that when you buy discerning, it is a wayfinder all of it's own.
Same deal with inherited. The wording makes it seem like you buy that upgrade, and you are given a wayfinder that can do these two things.
The rules seem to imply that when you buy a wayfinder upgrade, you do not get that ability added to your existing wayfinder, thereby not allowing multiple enhancements.
Am I reading this right?
