I use a very similar combo on my Dark Tapestry Oracle. He wears a +1 Spell Storing Haramaki with Bestow Curse stores inside and uses the Cloak of Darkness revelation. He gets the +6 armor bonus from the revelation(which doesn’t stack with the Haramaki) and when someone hits him he sticks them with the Bestow Curse.
My initial thought was that this does not work but I’ve seen enough variation that I wanted to see what people thought of this and hopefully get a concrete answer.
Can a non good PC use a dc 30 UMD check to emulate a good alignment followed by a dc 20 UMD check to activate a Wand of Bestow Grace(item) on his or herself?
I’ve heard people say that other classes can’t use a wand of Bestow Grace since they do not have Divine Grace, that it says “on another good creature” in the spell description meaning you can’t use it on yourself.
Use Magic Device says, “Use Magic Device lets you use these items as if you were of an alignment of your choice. You can emulate only one alignment at a time”
So does this work, why or why not?
I have a PFS Oracle who wears a +1 Spell Storing Haramaki and uses the Revelation Cloak of Shadows for +6 Armor Bonus. I checked with several Venture Agents before making the purchase to make sure it worked and I’ve yet to have anyone question it. I get the +6 Armor from the revelation but am still able to utilize my Spell Storing Haramaki when hit.
Claws and slams are a no go but talons are on the feet so they work. Bite and Gore are allowed even though they are on the same “limb”, see the Gargoyle for an example. If you’re working on a Barbarian/Bloodrager chassis, I would recommend a Furious Amulet of Mighty Fists. For a less expensive Gore you can use an Animal Mask. Hope this helps :)
My Operative is taking his first level in Soldier(Blitz) so he can pick up Improved Disarm & Pull the Pin at first level. 3rd level is fleet & mobility using Operative Exploit(Combat Trick).

Some of my favorites on my Dual Cursed Oracle are Bestow Curse and Blindness. Grab a persistent, lesser metamagic rod if you have a free hand. As soon as I have the gold i'm gonna add Spell Storing to some armor to Bestow Curse anyone that hits me. I second what Captain Morgan said and recommend you get a collection of all the status removals on scrolls and a Mnemonic Vestment so that you can use the scrolls without burning them(1/day) and without using up your precious spells known.
How would the familiar pick up toughness? I know they can share Combat feats with an Eldritch Guardian or Teamwork feats through the Valet Archetype. Since they don't get feats themselves I'm curious how it would snag toughness anyway. Would love additional traits on one of mine but couldn't figure out how to do it.
