Magus Spell Progression


Round 3: Revised Magus Discussion


This came up in discussion about the Magus. Why does the Magus use the spontaneous Spell Progression? With spontaneous caster they get new levels of spells a level later when you compare Wizard/witch to the Sorcerer.

Since there is no other 1-6 level spell class that doesn't spontaneous cast this is kind of new territory. I'd think that the Magus should get 2 level spells at level 3, 3rd level spells at level 6, 4th at level 9, 5th at level level 12 and 6th at 15th.

Just a thought

Because he's a split character between two diametric paths as opposed to a dedicated spellcaster. He's essentially more akin to the Bard in how much spellcasting takes of his time.
