Spellcasting

A relic hunter casts divine spells drawn from the inquisitor spell list, but her chosen relic schools (see Relics below) limit her to schools she knows, similar in function to an occultist's implements. Any spell or orison gained by the relic hunter has a relic component (see Relics below), and is not considered to be on the relic hunter's spell list until she selects its school though the relics alternate class feature. Once she chooses a school, all spells and orisons of that school are considered to be on the relic hunter's class spell list, allowing her to use spell trigger and spell completion magic items of those spells. A relic hunter's spells per day, daily spell allotment, Difficulty Class, and minimum Wisdom score requirements remain unchanged from the inquisitor's normal spellcasting class feature.

This ability alters the inquisitor's spellcasting.

This phrase is silent about the spells known for an inquisitor. Does it work like an inquisitor (where they get a certain amount of spells known based on the inquisitor spells known chart) or an occultist (where when you get a new relic/implement, you learn a spell of every level you know of that school)?

Common sense would suggest it works like an inquisitor but it is not explicitly mentioned.

Dark Archive

The text under Spellcasting calls out what is unchanged, and Spells Known is not listed there. That implies that Spells Known has changed, but does not state how. I'm making this for the FAQ.


to add to that, the phrase

Quote:
Like an occultist, a relic hunter can select the same school twice, but it is far less useful for her to do so.

on the relics ability complicates things a bit more...

Like an inquisitor but with the limited schools. That's why the line shroudb found is in there as a reminder. The reason it doesn't say spells known are unchanged, as DubiousYak points out that it doesn't, is because the limit on schools is a change.

The text "A relic hunter's spells per day, daily spell allotment..." should probably read "A relic hunter's spells per day, spells known...." It looks like a mix-up in the wording.


Really easy for a Relic Hunter to have fewer orisons to choose from than the standard number known.

I sooo confused.... so does A relic hunter cast spells from the inquisitor spell list? or Occultist list?.. Inquisitor's don't have relic schoolso, and which occultism spells are on the Inquisitor list?
