I'm not going to join in on this convo. I want to post it and get answers for myself. So far, all I see is the Martial/Caster junk and I agree the disparity is HUGE! Now this is a challenge, the challenge is to go through this like civilized people. Let's act like adults, weird coming from me I know. But I want everyone opinions on why, I would EVER want a Monk/Rogue/Fighter over any of the full/partial casters available. At any level, using only PF rules.
I'm asking for 5 things from each group and if you're argument is easily countered, it's disqualified. I just need 5 things a martial can do that's necessary to a group that's not easily filled by the spell casters. This is not a discussion on the disparity, it's a discussion on...
A) What people THINK fighters are supposed to be doing and
B) What spell casters can do to invalidate and more importantly
C) Why do martials require a place in game if they're not really allowed to be important
EDIT: D) What can a martial do that no other class type can do. Clearly anyone does damage, what else?
It's up to you forums, I'm sitting this out, just don't fight. Talk. Like people please. No need to get mad and avoid arguing with each other, infact, don't even talk to one another. Focus on the question peeps. Please. Ok, discussion... *knowing this will devolve into petty fights int moments regardless...* go!
