the faq does seem pretty stinky...
the more i read the more i agree that Paragon Surge deserved the nerf bat, but all this spell list mumbojumbo is a load of bs.
if you honestly take the SkillFocus+EH+IEH feat chain bully for you. you win a couple of spells. Nerf paragon surge so that you can't use IEH to grab spells. problem fixed.
my beef always had been with paragon surge it stunk of cheese hot off the presses.
Improved Eldritch Heritage(Arcane) is a Huge feat investment and backstory.
i highly suggest being REEALLY careful on designing new powers...
I highly encourage carefully adding fun and interesting "Surge Augments" to many of the original powers...for example, maybe a higher level augment for Telekinetic force that changes the duration from concentration to 1round/level. allowing you to concentrate on the power when you want to use it as a move or std action. or allow the use of the thrust option more than once...or knocking everyone prone in a 15ft burst...
How come N. Jolly's guides haven't been added to the index in the front? They are comprehensive and well done, should be a great addition.
so i'm gonna be nice and blow your mind gently...the first post (index) of this thread hasn't been updated in a long time cuz posts eventually are uneditable...
click Broken Zenith's link to the Comprehensive Guide to the Guides...you will be very happy.
BZ is compiling everyting there. after you're done reading all those guides(N.Jolly's included) you can have fun absorbing the Guide to the Builds that is linked toward the bottom.
take it easy LazarX, they are great mind exercises and RD never claims anything about playability 1-20.
as always RD's characters make great plug and play NPC's, they stretch the rules to their limits (hopefully fostering a closer look during the editing/FAQ/errata process), and they're FUN!
Sela Kurn is my favorite
So i was wondering about how the summoner HP works.
So unfused my HP=12
So given ExtraEvo's ambiguous wording
there's no feat at level 20? kind of a cliff hanger right?
that way you can utilize all your opportunity to take them
