If it wasn't for the DCs, my group would probably have a better challenge with the 3-4 enemies. They're running amok on the fey... After 1 round, I've been reduced to the quickling and 1 mitflit...

Same the only reason, the quickling is that because of his high AC and insane speed. (I would like to create a monk Quickling)

Looking at Bret suggestion... I will change the character to my most flavourful.

(Cough, cough) A rocky gray with a tint of purple-skinned gnome with almost white hair gnome enters the stage with a weasel on her left shoulder and an alchemical crossbow in her back. She looks confident like she knows she will be chased but whoever is hiding behind the shadows.

"I think it is time that I present myself.I am Inonotuusobliquus

from Dwimovel in the Darklands. My quest is to be the world’s Greatest Cook! I joined the Pathfinder society as an excuse to travel the world and learn the best cooking techniques. I was so great with my cooking technique that I didn't need to do the three years of training! They told me that my dish was like an elixir that an alchemist would make. So, with me, you have the best of both worlds. It doesn't taste awful and it works!

Lately, I heard the new trend in cuisine is magician cooks. I am so angry! Using magic in food is to be drawn into an illusion. This isn't real food! But... I want to be the greatest chef, I need to be at least be able to do this I also have a rivalry with the Mask and the Moon, but not the owner himself... we have had a few dates together.

I am also writing a cooking book. Something very simple. Not simple for me. Each recipe has 5-7 ingredients with a few times of preparation. That is the best way I think I can show the world who I am. When I will be the greatest, I want that people will know about me before.

My favourite adventure was...when I visited the village Plaguestone. I learned so many things about how you cooked turnip. Pie, soup, pudding. How and the murder mystery was bad either."

Class: Alchemist (which dedication. This is a version of Ino for the adventure).

Why she is investigating the dark archives.... this is food-related, right?

Ran it tonight. Unfortunately, I think this one needed another editorial pass. Our table held a discussion afterward — all were In agreement it could be a wonderful scenario but was held back by mechanical and thematic issues that could have been avoided. Here are some takeaways:

The child grooming elements felt inappropriate and unnecessary. Players thought it was a strange choice for Society play. Again… just have the scene in her merchant spice booth in public.
The scene in the warehouse really bothers me. How are PCs forcefully inspecting Efrith's spellbook and other personal items? They just barge in and start rifling through her stuff, breaking down doors, and taking things. The PCs aren't even "deputized" to have any sort of authority to investigate this person's home. I thought we were moving away from this kind of behavior in Society play.
The dragons are anthropomorphized as young innocent children, and also as sadistic beings. The tone fluctuated between dark comedy and lighthearted cuteness. Taken altogether, it felt thematially uneven.
Bumper Boats was incredibly frustrating for the players for the no-net-positive checks mentioned above.
Linnorns have a swim speed so people were confused that Crookscale can't swim; we ended up flavoring it like "believe in yourself!" Not sure if that was the author's intent, but some clarification would be good here because I think that's a hilarious way to play it.
Player also "killed" some of Skarde Nineblades's crew in the duel. I used the death and dying rules and they stabilized them, at least. Those NPCs seem really weak and many tables will be killing them on accident.
The scene at the end doesn't seem to matter if they have 8+ gold pouches. My group had the gold but had a difficult and frustrating time with DCs in the throne room. They wished we skipped the scene altogether.
The fact that it all comes down to the gold was frustrating for players (even if it's...

I thought that astrid was CE. I was like Ok. Well, the society is neutral.

Those are great critics you approach.

In my game, the gm just flat out said that efrith was a spy and was just reading the textbox.

Having 5 dragons is too much. Especially if some are one dimensionnal

And i am peeve that you cannot give the martyr's Shield to the pc of your choice.

A lot could be alieved if they reduced the utility ability into one action.

Wait... You had no ghost touch rune and every round you were using overflow action?

Nefreet wrote:

Separate from the discussion about whether the Kineticist's damage output is on par with other damage dealers, I miss rolling a handful of dice, tossed just right to feel like you're actually blasting them at your opponent.

I always expected the 2E Kinetic Blast to function like a Cantrip, scaling as you levelled. In 1E, it made them feel distinct from martials and casters.

Now we have spells like Hurtling Stone, a Focus Spell with scaling d6s and +Strength to damage, that's only one action. And we have staple Cantrips like Telekinetic Projectile, that a Kineticist should be at least as capable of dishing out.

Making Kinetic Blasts the same in function as a mundane weapon kinda bums me out. Anyone else feel the same?

Yup. That is what make me sad. Less dice rolling.

First. If you want to compare something.

Use something similar. Electric arc is one of the best cantrip it exist. It has 30 range. And a Dc.

The wind slash (ranged) as 120 ft. 4x the range of electric arc. And it an attack.

So, it does something similar to ray of frost which does 1d4 plus mod. (And it is better than this spell.)

Or you could compare to a crossbolt.

And also.... The overflow does more than damage.

Themetricsystem wrote:

I'm worried about the Action Cost like you and feel it is too restrictive for sure, but I am actually MORE worried about restrictive all of these things are in terms of always requiring free hands as well as making ALL of the various Blasts and other elemental forms specific Actions that are unable to be combined with anything else which prompts for a Strike of one kind or another... in other words, they're HIGHLY encouraged to never use any Weapons beyond the one you can create/summon yourself and they are pretty much totally incompatible with the VAST majority of all the interesting Martial Archetypes.

They're just so incredibly insular and have basically no good reason to grab Archetypes as they can't use the vast majority of interesting things you can get from them with the possible exception of like... grabbing an Animal Companion or some Spellcasting Archetype to inject a bit more (weak) versatility to help them overcome non-combat challenges.

But... Overflow have no flourish trait, so i could imagine easily a monk or a ranger archetype even if you can't use blast for an unarmed strike.

Before the fight: Gather your energy

First: Flurry of blow

Second and third: an overflow.

roquepo wrote:

I agree with the general sentiment of the class being really low in overall damage and power. I think the biggest contributor to this is the relation between action cost and the power level of said actions. In actuality, all overflow abilities take 1 extra action due to the need of gathering the element. I think the gathering mechanic in isolation is perfect, but its execution and implementation has been a bit sloppy and the overall impact it has on the class has been underestimated (similarly to reload in the Gunslinger playtest). I have a personal idea on how strong I think this feats should be in relation to their cost:

3+1 actions: Should be on par with on level spell slots. They are not limited but as if they were since you need 4 actions to set them up. They should also be slighly stronger than that if their effect is not completely frontloaded on the turn they are used. Buffs like Earth Mantle should never take 3 actions to cast, the worst the action economy is, the worse an effect that does nothing with those actions gets, since the pay-off comes later.

2+1 actions: Comparable to 2 action focus spells, maybe slighy stronger. Out of combat both of these get as many uses as they want and in combat, unless it drags out, you will get 1 to 2 uses for both, but with worse action economy for the Kineticist overflow abilities in exchange of being more reliable than focus spells.

1+1 action: On par with cantrips. Maybe a bit weaker since you can split the action cost.

1+free action/reaction: Comparable to low level spell effects in relation to the level you get the feat.

I will try to organise a playtest session and see for myself if my thoughts on this remain the same.

... I don't think they are underpowered. For the simple reason... That there is no limit of how many you can do in a day.

I do think the class needs to buffed a little, but they shouldn't do more damage than a caster expending resources, no. And to those saying that casters have utility so kineticist can just be straight damage - kineticists have some pretty good utility too if you look for it. Very focused, sure, but being able to do anything all day makes their utility potentially very strong (things like whole party all day flight or casting wall of stone over and over).

The kineticist impulses should deal 35% more of whatever the difference is between casters cantrips and spells. So for example.. fireball deals 20d6 at level 20 and produce flame deals 10d4+7 = 47+17=64/2=32 dmg on avg vs 70 dmg on avg aoe.

70-32=38 damage difference.

35% of that equals 13.3. 13+32= 45.

45×2=90. 9d10 should be the minimum an impulse attack deals.

Either 9d10 or 15d6 or 7d12. Depends on how much variance you have.

Note: this is calculating both the 20% difference PLUS the DC difference at level 20 for single target damage.

If we are at level 1 with this ability. I could see this

2d6 dmg
Level+2 +1d6
Level 5 +1d6
Level 10 +1d6
Level 15 +1d6
Level 20 +1d6

For a total of 15d6 at level 20 for a single target spell. For a multi target aoe I could see 12d6 instead.

I think this would be much more in line with the balance.

But Area do more than damage, they have an effect also.

You missed Restoring Mud for Earth healing.

RESTORING MUD [two-actions] FEAT 4

You fling a ball of healing mud at one creature within 30 feet. Upon
impact, this mud coats the target’s body, healing wounds and
leaving behind a thin shell of mud that protects the creature from
further harm. The target regains 2d6 Hit Points and 2 temporary
Hit Points that last for 1 minute. The target is temporarily immune
to healing from Restoring Mud for 10 minutes.
Level (+2) The healing increases by 1d6 and the temporary Hit
Points increase by 2.

You are right. I was thinking more like having a counteract ability.

3 people marked this as a favorite.

Note that understand that the healing option would be with wood, but is a stable in Xianxia that fire purify the body of his impurity and i see in this document .

A healing wave splashes across creatures in a 30-foot cone,
its cleansing water chasing afflictions from the body. Each
creature in the area regains 3d6 HP and can attempt a new
save against one poison or disease affliction affecting it; on a
failed save, the condition doesn’t worsen.
Each creature in the area then becomes temporarily immune
to Torrent in the Blood for 10 minutes.
Level (+2) The healing increases by 1d6.


CIRCULATE QI [two-actions] FEAT 12
The pure air of your inner gate is rich in qi that you can
use to invigorate and restore an ailing creature. Target an
adjacent living creature. It regains 30 HP, and Circulate Qi
then attempts to counteract one of the following conditions
of your choice: blinded, clumsy, deafened, drained, enfeebled,
paralyzed, sickened, or stupefied. Counteracting a condition
with a condition value reduces the value by 1 instead of
entirely removing it. The target is then temporarily immune to
Circulate Qi for 1 hour.
You can try to remove an instance of a condition from a
given creature only once using this impulse, though you can
try to remove the same condition from a different source. For
instance, if you failed to remove the drained condition from
a jiang-shi vampire’s Drain Qi ability, you couldn’t attempt to
remove it again, but 1 hour later, you could still try to remove
the drained condition from a poison.

as such I would like that fire would have somme similar like torrent in the blood but for only himself (no healing also.). It would be Great. (and if there would be a higher feat for curse. That would fantastic)

MaxAstro wrote:

Fire kineticists being the only ones who can actually do elemental damage with their basic elemental blast is my only real disappointment with the kineticist right now.

Please please please can we switch air's blast to electricity damage and water's blast to cold damage so that the elemental damage-focused class can actually do elemental damage?

If I only got one wish for this entire playtest, it would be that.

Earth totally makes sense to deal bludgeoning damage, but three out of four elements (and I imagine with wood and metal it's going to be five out of six) dealing physical damage is just a huge let-down.

Ideally, wood would be piercing damage and metal slashing damage. That way, we would have fire, cold, electricity, bludgeoning, piercing, and slashing as options - half elemental and half physical.

Like the elemental sorcerer. Only fire does fire damage.

Access A character who is Magaambyan of at least attendant rank has access to this option.
You devote much of your study to halcyon magic. You gain two common Halcyon cantrips and two common 1st-level halcyon spells (see Halcyon Spells). In addition to being able to cast your halcyon spells via your arcane or primal spell slots, you also gain a 1st-level halcyon spell slot. You can use your halcyon spell slots to spontaneously cast your halcyon spells.

Special You cannot select another dedication feat until you have gained two other feats from the halcyon speaker archetype.

and choose the heal spell from the primal tradition list can I use scrolls and other items that have that spell on it?

If you are already a Magaambyan attendant, you should already be able to do this.

Weapon surge

Holding your weapon aloft, you fill it with divine energy. On your next Strike with that weapon before the start of your next turn., you gain a +1 status bonus to the attack roll and the weapon deals an additional die of damage. If the weapon has a striking rune, this instead increases the number of dice from the striking rune by 1 (to a maximum of 3 extra weapon dice).

If the target weapon leaves your possession, weapon surge immediately ends.
