About 10 hours ago, on Reddit, in response to a poster's statement, "No Magus...SALT. Guess I will try using Swashbuckler as the base for my magus.", Eric Mona stated here, "Don’t despair. The magus is high on the list."

So, the magus will get made and sooner rather than later by the sounds of it. It just obviously won't be in this first round of new classes for the APG and its playtest.

Seltyiel!!!

I confess, I know who Mengkare is and what he's about but could not tell you the first thing about Durvin Gest or Seltyiel.

<shocked!>

Surely you're having a brain-fart!?

<shocked!>

He's an ICONIC !

<shocked!>

;p


What if you like both?

So could we structure the PF2 Magus class around something analogous to Druid orders, like "What is your relationship with your weapon" so the choice of having an intelligent black blade, or a weapon you manifest out of pure magic, or a weapon you forged and inscribed the eldritch runes on yourself, etc.?
This sounds promising.

I feel like the thing that's going to necessitate the inclusion of a Magus or Magus analogue in PF2 is the otherwise unsatisfied desire to play a mystic warrior with a mysterious intelligent weapon bound to your soul, or a weapon you have manifested out of pure will.

So it might be the case that the baseline PF2 Magus is a Black Blade Kensai or a Mindblade.

I'd be ok with either.

Oh! & Don't lose Seltyi-- er... the Magus in PF2!

He goes back to being the Iconic Eldritch Knight?

Fair enough. :)

[A lot on]... "what is to become of all these gishes" or "is there more to the magus than a warrior who magics or a magic-user who fights?"

Ummm...

I am potentially OK with a few?some?many? of the "non-core rulebook" classes (introduced in later supplements/rulebooks from PF1) being doable as archetyped/multiclassed character options in PF2.

So, if the Magus actually doesn't appear as its own class but can be done well as an alternative build to one of the base classes, I'll learn to deal with it.
But that really wasn't the point of my post.

I'm not OK with potentially losing an iconic of which I'm a fan were this to be the design route chosen for PF2.

It's there in the alias above the pic of said iconic... There is more to the Magus class than just its mechanics (for some).
And it applies to all "non-core" classes, too.

Also, I was being over-dramatic/silly. There wasn't anything really serious about it. ^^
Doesn't invalidate what you were trying to say, though.

<sigh>
Oh, well. Thanks anyways.

... Another, Paizo specific is an image in the Armor Master's Handbook of Seltiyel in "heavy armor", but still bare chested.

I do agree with you that "bare-chested heavy armour" is...impractical.

However, it does fit Seltyiel's aesthetic, & I'm OK with that!
No bias here! ;-p

But on another character... Er, I guess it'd depend, even though it is silly?
(Although I'm sure one of Remy P Gilbeau's characters could totally rock it!)

The only thing the Magus really had going for it was casting a touch spell through your weapon. It would be relatively easy to add a feat or class ability that could be chosen to make this possible.

That's not the only thing the Magus had going for it!

The Magus should be CORE (or as early in the development cycle of the new edition) because of...

SELTYIEL!!

I'm missing him already. (ToT)

;p

Just thought we needed a little less "crunchy" POV in this thread, too...
