Concentration checks: caster level or spellcraft?


Rules Questions


P.114 - Combat casting feat - "+4 bonus on spellcraft checks for defensive casting"
P.203 - "Distracting Spellcasters:If you damage the spellcaster, she may lose the spell she was trying to cast (as determined by her spellcraft check result).

But there is no mention of concentration checks in the spellcraft skill description, nor does the combat casting feat description mention spellcraft, and on pages 206-207 it's stated that concentration checks are d20 + caster level + relevant ability modifier...

So, caster level or spellcraft?

Caster Level, it was a typo carried over from the beta. It has already been updated in the PDF, PRD, and is available in the errata document

Caster level. The full text of Combat Casting on p 119 makes no mention of Spellcraft, and that plus the rules on p 203 trumps the summary text on p 114. If you have to choose between a summary of an ability or situation and the full rules text of that ability/situation, always go with the full rules.

EDIT: Ninja'ed. What he said. ;)


Thanks!

Edit : P.203 is not mentionned in the errata - is there a way to report this?
