I have the same sort of feedback as others. Overall, big picture, I'm happy with the direction of the 1.4 changes, and see this as a significant improvement.
Thoughts:
Perhaps Half-Elves and Half-Orcs should get their languages, though now that I think about it, i'm not as sure. Low light vision seems not as useful as some of the other heritage benefits.
Names need to change, just like everyone else is saying.
Perhaps the "base" gnome could get another benefit, so that not everyone will be playing Deep Gnomes. (Both my PF1 gnomes took the racial substitution to get Darkvision instead of the +2 to Perception).

As I do almost exclusively organized play, characters end at 11th level. So saying the DC's get easier at levels 17-20 is pretty pointless to me.

That's true for PF1, but I'm hoping won't be the case for the PF2 organized play campaign. The 3.5 backbone of the system really breaks down at higher levels, which is why I suspect the level cap is as is in PFS. With a more balanced system where all classes can contribute and high level combat doesn't just devolve into "which caster won initiative and can cast their 7th+ level spell first", I don't see a reason why the main campaign couldn't go all the way to 20th level.

Does anyone know: Will there be a General Feat that says: Select a class feat for your given class?

Well, Humans can take the Natural Ambition ancestry feat, gaining them a 1st level class feat. Anyone can take Adopted Ancestry (a general feat) to take Ancestry feats from another Ancestry (unless those feats rely on physiology). As a note, you don't need to be backstory adopted by humans, the flavor says that a close friendship is enough.

Is there any more detail on the Room/Parking assistance available to 5+ block GMs? I had to click through the survey to see what blocks were offered, but didn't want to click past committing my number of slots, since I am still at the travel planning stage of attending PAX.

One last question: When does the First Ten Shipping discount get credited? It was listed under Promotions for my order, but it does not seem to have been applied to the shipping cost.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Card Game Subscriber; Starfinder Charter Superscriber

Hello. I just placed Order# 7464239. I wanted to apply the 10% downtime discount to it, but I did not see a place to enter codes or payment information. Perhaps this was because I combined the order with a pending subscription order? (I know I don't get the discount on my subscription items in the order I combined it with). Thank you!

Given what we've seen so far, I suspect the core elements of designing a witch to be fairly straightforward. I'd expect a Witch to be an int-based, prepared spellcaster that uses the Occult list. The choice of patron and familiar would be the baked in class ability (a la Wizard school or Sorceror bloodline), and hexes would come from Class Feats. Of course, I'm not claiming the design would be easy: balancing hexes will probably take some serious development to get right. But if someone wanted to homebrew a witch *right now*, I suspect they could do a pretty passable job at it.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Card Game Subscriber; Starfinder Charter Superscriber

I am quite happy that the Bard gets another starting spell. One plus + one from choice of muse seemed lacking when compared to the Sorcerer.

Amiri could get away with having a greatsword if necessary anyway, since she rarely one-hands her weapon.

From my experience at GenCon, the only time Amiri was one-handing her weapon was when she was taking advantage of her one-handed climbing ability. I'm pretty sure I forgot that changing grip (adding a hand) cost an action, though.

If you haven't seen Jason's playtest twitch stream on Friday, he admitted that the design team would take a good hard look at Signature Skills and decide if they were really adding anything to the game. I'd expect the concept to get heavily reworked, if not discarded entirely.

I guess another difference between Superstition in PF1 vs PF2 is that Channel Energy was Su (and therefore fine) in PF1 , but now it's just the Heal spell via a different resource pool (and on the no-no list). From a game design perspective, I wonder if you could say: cantrips and powers cast from spell points are fine, spells cast from spell slots are not and mostly get the desired behavior. (Allow bardic performance and channeled healing; though of course that would then allow a single target heal, which is undesirable, so there goes that idea).

But yeah, what does the barbarian do if the cleric needs to throw a 3 round channel but can't yet channel selectively?

how about a 90 year old wizard with 8 Strenght outdoing a level 10 barbarian with 20 str in most athletics tasks, without the aid of magic mind you. Is that ok aswell? Same Wizard is outdoing the level 10 rogue in acrobatics and the level 10 bard att singing and playing every single instrument in the world.. Said wizard outdoes the level 10 fighter at swordsplay and is scarier than the halforc barbarian. this wizard outdoes an entire level 10 party at everything they are best at and has dedicated their life to perfect.. and only reason is "Because level 20 and bad ass"

So: 8 STR vs 20 STR, that's a difference of 6 (-1 vs +5). Let's also assume, based on your description, that the wizard is Untrained while the barbarian is a Master, which they can pick up by level 7. That's another difference of 4 (-2 vs + 2). This means that, for tasks that don't require training, they have the same bonus; the two are evenly matched if the task isn't at all proficiency-gated. If proficiency matters, or if the non level 20 char has relevant skill feats, they'll come out ahead.

20th level characters should be... i'm trying to find a word for mythic/epic/legendary that isn't already a loaded game term. That's the story this system seems primed to tell.

I believe NielsenE is referring to the Pathfinder Society Playtest Scenarios discussed in this blog post. There will be pregenerated characters, but players can also make their own 5th level PCs with the Playtest rules.

As for when the starting equipment/WBL rules will come out; I've got no idea.

These sound quite good. I might have a hard time deciding between lore and polymath if it came to it.

Thankfully, you only need to decide which one you want first. If you want both, you should be able to spend class feats to pick up the second one fairly soon.

Bard Blog wrote:

As befits the individualistic nature of a performer's muse, none of the initial muse abilities are exclusive, so you can use your feats to traverse as deeply as you want into the abilities from each path; your muse merely represents a starting point on your bardic journey.

For example, if you select the maestro muse at 1st level, you gain the Lingering Composition bard feat (granting you the lingering composition power detailed above) and add soothe to your spell repertoire, but any bard can take this feat or learn this spell—selecting the maestro muse just grants them as a default.

I only played one 5e game but it went on for a while and we had some turnover so there were a total of nine different players who made characters while I was part of it. Eight of them dumped Str to 8.

I have a number of 5E characters, and have dumped STR, DEX, CHA, & INT. I just need two more characters so that I can dump WIS (should be fine) and CON (okay, that one will be tough).

However, I currently GM a 5E game. 3 of my PCs dumped STR, and the 4th has a 13, which is the minimum to be a multiclassed Paladin, so for all intents and purposes, he dumped it, too. :/

Worldhopper: That seems to be not the case, though i'm not sure about if it's a) or c)
Excaliburproxy: It wouldn't surprise me if the players of the GCP podcast misunderstood the rules and used the spell roll instead of the dex-based attack roll. I suspect we'll have the dex-based ranged attack as evidenced by these pregen sheets, though I imagine that is something that we can give feedback for during the playtest.

Ahh, I see you're in the school of "It's totally fine to walk around with a loaded crossbow". I remember this being a point of contention, though forget if that was in 3.5 or PFS. In fairness, it's probably an okay tactic while you are wielding it (because you're in the wilderness/ a dungeon), and a little more questionable while it is strapped to your back (because you're in town or walk staff in hand).

Maybe some sort of Seelie/Unseelie distinction? They'd both be Fey Sorcerers, but the first gets Primal and the second Occult. I was going to propose Summer/Winter, but then it would be weird if Summer got Cone of Cold via Primal and Winter.... didn't.

I hope Acid Splash scales quickly, because 1d4+1 isn't worth anything after 1st level.

I bet it will scale with an additional 1d4+1 (with +1 to splash and persistent damage on crits) every two levels.

My first thought when I saw the preview was "whelp, we're back to a 1st level wizard using a crossbow when out of spell slots", but then I realized that since Acid Splash is a Touch Attack it's got an accuracy bonus baked in vs the crossbow.

I was wondering if spells should just use the Spell Roll to attack, instead of relying on Dex (which still seems to be the all-important stat, as I expect most wizards to need it anyway for AC reasons). Then again, a wizard using int to attack might be too accurate for the tight math of PF2E. My next thought was to eliminate touch attacks and touch AC, to put those to-hit numbers back in line. Then I realized that i'd gotten to the same design decision as 5E (which, to be clear, are fine for that game). So, I think we're fine as is.

Throwing fireballs and turning into dinosaurs and being unable to charm people is not a Pathfinder Bard. That said, you have Sorcerer to cover spontaneous charisma-based casting off the Primal list. It's the fey bloodline, so you probably get a dash of illusions and enchantment.

See, I'm wondering if the Fey bloodline wouldn't actually be a better fit for the Occult list (if it focuses on charms and the like), and something like a Plant bloodline would be better for Primal. But we'll see when the playtest comes out.

How much intermix do the spells from Occult, Arcane, Divine, and Primal have? I mean, I'm not alone in wanting to have fairly unique spell lists for each of these. It's one thing that really turned me off of Occult Adventures that so many 'psychic' abilities were just "reskinned" spells that Wizards and other classes already had.

Tangent, read up on Magical Traditions (specifically the four "essences") from the blog post here, and search that thread / other places for e.g. Mark's commentary on the subject. As further reference, the Primal List is Vital/Material, while the Occult list is Mental/Spiritual.

If I have a worry about this, I'm more worried that they might NOT add those things.

We know that Staves exist, have low level versions, and can do this with a bit of Resonance cost (which to a Bard, is not as painful as it might be for non-CHA casters).

2) For better or worse, the iconic art illustrates the characters with the same set of gear no matter at what point they are illustrated. Their art will always depict them wearing what the creators envision as being worn for the majority of their career. This is true at level 1 before they can afford it, and it is true at level 20 when their gear has probably all been converted to mithril or adamantine or whatever.

I can only think of one counter-example, and that's the Mythic Iconics. I thought that art was spectacular.

Seems like it will be very worth to get 16 CHA on the Paladin for higher healing and more spell points. Possibly even at the cost of 18 STR. At least for Seelah who is investing all her stuff on a LoH build.

Since PF2 uses the Starfinder rules for advancing ability scores, a Paladin can raise STR, CON, CHA consistently, and cycle the 4th boost between DEX and WIS for saves, or maybe even INT for some reason.

So, there's a lot of wondering why Seelah's character has a very out-of-place background benefit. If you haven't, you should read her Meet the Iconics blog post. The street urchin background is that; her background. Is Seelah the paladin going to be picking pockets in all but the most unusual circumstances? Of course not. Some people may want to make sure the background carries a solid benefit for the character. Other people really value the story, and the background benefit is window dressing. Seelah's build is the latter, and that's OK.

Maybe if you are "only" trained in thievery you really can use it only for the most basic tasks. And if you're a master but without the right feat you still can't pick pockets and palm worn rings.

That would certainly be something on which to give some sweet, sweet feedback.

Their level. I forget what level you can start to get Expert in skills, but your run of the mill street urchins are probably the equivalent of level 1 NPCs, who should be at best trained. Now that special street urchin with a lot of hustle that makes it to expert? That one probably has PC glow. :)

I hope that's not the case, and that Expert level thievery lets you do this. In this case, the pickpocket feat is for street urchins and the like that won't ever get to Expert level thievery but still need to steal a living.

I mean in PF1 humans were more prevalent than any other race because their build would come online earlier and it seems that thos will be the case again.

I was excited about General Training because it was a good way to keep humans on brand without having the same problem we had in PF1 but with the inclusion of Natural Ambition humans are an even better option since they can pick either feat depending on their needs.

The devs have said that feat chains no longer have thematically inappropriate entries, so hopefully this less of an issue. For instance, I would be surprised if e.g. there was a feat chain like Point-Blank Shot / Precise Shot that all archers wanted and Humans could get quicker.

On the Natural Ambition front, it seems like that extra feat is granting something neat but not mind-blowingly good: I could probably do without Warded Touch or Reactive Shield if I got a neat Ancestry feat instead.
Finally, I think this will make taking Archetypes (and VMC, if that's the system we get) easier for Humans, since the opportunity cost of those options are the Class feats you aren't taking, making the Class Feats you do get more valuable. Once again, seems on-brand for Humans.

These are first level pregens; I'd imagine better heavy armor is not within a new PC's budget. In 4E a Paladin could start with Plate, but plenty of people didn't like that the suit of plate mail was only ~10 gp more than Scale, or that Fighters needed to a feat to gain proficiency with Plate. (The latter concern was addressed in Essentials with the Knight build Fighter)

2 class feats and natural ambition again. I suppose it might do that?

Seems pretty likely. Interesting that for the three humans we saw, the Human Ancestry feats gave either Class feats (for Valeros and Seelah) or a General feat (Toughness for Kyra). I suppose the ancestry identity for humans in 3.x was a bonus feat and bonus skill ranks; so getting an extra feat of some type is on brand. In general, the humans seemed to have a number of trained skills, so perhaps that advantage is still present, as well.

It's interesting that both of Seelah's class feats go into boosting Lay on Hands. Training in Medicine and turning the D4s into D6s seems pretty good. Making LoH not provoke also seems good if eg you plan to use it on yourself when in a particularly nasty fight in lieu of taking that 3rd attack that's unlikely to hit (though as Seelah I'd want to raise my shield most turns I bet, so the tradeoff would be against my 2nd attack, but i digress). That said, the implementation seems a little clunky: remove the Manipulate tag from the Somatic action? So *most* somatic actions provoke, but this one doesn't anymore? I guess we'll have to wait until we get the rules to see how clear it is.

Going back to Kyra: this pregen is probably fine for an hour-long delve event, but for a more generic pregen, I'd like to see a quick run down of the patron diety's anathema.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Card Game Subscriber; Starfinder Charter Superscriber

In general, I like what I see. Comments/thoughts:
I don't like that her Athletics bonus is left off the sheet. I get that she has Assurance(Athletics), and won't be rolling for DCs 10 and under; that's probably a very good thing, given the penalty from chain mail. But I like to see scores for every skill I am trained in; it's possible (though likely a bad idea) that I'd want to attempt a task harder than DC 10 with her.
Seems kinda weird that Spell Roll +5 is on the sheet, but her Fire Ray is a +2 touch attack; people accustomed to e.g. 5E might see Spell Roll and her domain power but not look up at the Strikes to see the +2. Then again, that's how touch attacks always worked in Pathfinder, so people coming from old Pathfinder will be fine.
I wonder what General Training got her. Probably more trained skills?
Typo on a spells line: Bless and Sanctuary aren't cantrips.
No attack cantrip; either Clerics don't get them or Kyra is supposed to rely on her scimitar and Fire domain for combat. I guess that's similarly on-brand for Pathfinder, though I do hope that less melee-oriented casters will have combat cantrips.
