Additionally, here is commentary from a former member of the Pathfinder Design Team ranting about the rods.Sean K Reynolds wrote:Honestly, I think all of the metamagic rods are cheesy and should be removed from the game. The metamagic feats are already annoying and weak and there's no strong incentive to take them, and on top of that you can pick up the rod as a cheap feat-in-a-can and not have to prepare the spell ahead of time, and on top of that, they can bypass the 9th-level spell limit (normally you can't quicken anything 6th or higher with the feat because there are no 10th-level spell slots), so the rods are even better than the feat.The parenthetical statement is clearly at odds with the idea that the rods allow you to prepare the spells ahead of time using the metamagic feat, as if that were the case, you couldn't use the rod of quicken, despite what the statement above states.
Great. I loved the quote. The question now is, who/when has to increase time? Other than the obvious sorcerer.
Ok, A lot of good replies here. Let's keep going:
So, can I infer that since the sorc has to take a full round, so does the oracle?
Cleric, druid, etc. work like the wizard?
-But if they spontaneously cast a cure light or summon nature's ally, is it a full round?
