If i look at the APG under elemental wizards, I see a greatly reduced spell list. There is a "all schools" section and sections for each element.
then in UM, there are added 2 new types of elemental wizards, wood and metal, and removing air.
My question is do these 2 new elemental wizards still use the reduced spell list in APG. It would seem they do, since in UM, they only list the 2 new schools. This would make the 5 sschool system cohesive.
It is interesting how much weaker they are making the wizards at higher levels. There is a CMD myth. I think we should make the martial types as weak as casters at lower levels.
let's see, they can only make 3 attacks per day with their weapon, then they become fatigued and can only do 1d3 dam (no STR mod) after that. That will level the playing field.
I like playing casters and I get that some people like playing martials. The CMD is a myth. Most of my significant opponents have SR. casting blasting spells is a last resort for me. I have done it and it is usually ineffective.
