Any lifting spells?


Pathfinder First Edition General Discussion


We have mage hand at 0th level (which inexplicably doesn't work on magical items) and telekinesis at 5th level, and nothing in between? Am I just missing it/them?


Pilfering Hand?

Shadow Lodge

Summon Monster x+Air Elemental? or anything else that you can summon for that matter?


@ Gwaedh: Sadly pilfering hand is only for maneuvers or those specifc skills checks.

@ ArmoredMonk13: I need spells that let the caster do the lifting, not get something else to do it. This also disqualifies unseen servant.

Why do you need a spell that lets the caster specifically do the lifting? I mean, is there a specific reason the caster has to do this, if you don't mind my asking? Why not spam out a small elemental?


(Tenser's) Floating Disc? Levitate? If you are open to homebrew, the power Telekinetic Force isn't hard to convert to a spell.

You have something UNDER Mage Hand in the form of Prestidigitation.

Thematics.


Unseen Servant too, which is versatile and has its own actions.


Floating disk. Spectral hand. Bigby's X hand. Telekinesis. Reverse Gravity. Levitate.


I am presuming you are the player in this situation. That being the case, talk to your dm about researching your own spell, if you do it as one of your two free level-up spells, you have a strong case for there being no extra fee.

I'd reskin Unseen Servant as giving the mage the abilities the spell includes. Already balanced, and fits to your theme.

Trust me, as a player I do it all the time with my DM's consent. I love theme. :)
