There are things like individual feats to and things like that where we can complain about and ask for change but we're on these threads going as far as wanting martials to get encounter bypassing abilities equal to flying and teleporting.
@Malwing: I don't feel these posts are an exercise in insanity. They're an opportunity to: verify if I am understanding the rules correctly; and how to home-brew things that don't work for me and my table.
I can agree with this. I feel like some of the things that people want are leaving D&D, which is what Pathfinder is, behind. A lot of people want to bring martials up, and I can agree with that to an extent, but it seems like very few want to bring casters down.
I think that's where the problem lies. Magic has always been powerful at higher levels, but I can't remember it being anything like it is now. There were limits and checks. A lot of those are gone now. Each book causes more creep, both laterally and vertically.
I understand that this game is about wish fulfillment. We want to be badass and do amazing things, but that goal post keeps getting pushed further and further back.
