Halfling race considered for PFS play. Thoughts on using sling or sling-staff as weapon considered (with my handy-dandy Cleric of Chaldira on the way). Went to message boards to find answers on slow-as-molasses load times on sling/staff sling.
So, I looked through half a dozen threads on this topic. Not one thread included an official Paizo or PFS answer - lots of house rules suggestions, no concrete answers.
The best I got was:
1.) Warslinger lets you reload faster, but you take AoOs and it requires two hands. (must trade-in sure-footed racial ability)
2.) Ammo Drop and Juggle Load feats get you loading your sling as a free action with 1 hand and no AoO. (but it costs two feats)
3.) Rapid Reload is suggested to be allowed for slings/staff slings AND crossbows. (house rule)
4.) Quickdraw applies because sling can be considered a thrown weapon. (no concrete "yes!" from paizo, so house rule?)
So my mind-blowing questions are as follows:
Does Quickdraw in the case of slings apply?
Do the Quickdraw/ Warslinger/ Ammo Drop-Juggle Load options apply to the Staff Sling?
Do feats such as Rapid Shot apply to Slings/Staff Slings?
OK, after searching across the forums, I still am wondering: does Weapon Focus: Ray include/cover all ranged touch attacks, or just rays?
If not, can I take Weapon Focus: Touch Attack or Ranged Touch Attack?
And if not, why doesn't Ray include all RTAs? Is there some way to increase the chance to hit with a TA/RTA that doesn't involve raising STR or DEX and Base Attack Bonus - something like a feat or ability?
Also, the threads have a LOT of home rule advice, but nothing really definitive from Paizo/Pathfinder. A definitive answer (so I can apply to my PFS character) would be greatly appreciated.
OK, I was lucky enough to have a great GM explain some of the PFS Sunder rules to me (thanks Ziz!), but alas, I was wondering...
Can a PCs gear be sundered in PFS play, and assuming the answer is yes, what happens to that gear?
I read in an earlier thread that gear found during a scenario ends up on the sheet at the end of the adventure, regardless of whether or not it was sundered during the scenario. But what about gear the PC has on him, that may get sundered by an enemy during an encounter?
I know some GMs don't particularly like things like sunder, so before I go around breaking things, I was wondering what might happen to my own broken stuff!
