Does mending act as a healing spell on mechanics' drones?
I've heard it discussed 3 ways:
1) Yes, they're constructs and perhaps it's even designed for them
2) No, they exceed the bulk limitations of mending
3) Sometimes -- it might work on small, spy drones, but not on larger drones
I tend to like option #1, but I'd like to know if there's a clear answer, especially for organized play.
Option #3 sounds terrible since it would likely drive everyone to smaller drones.
I agree with Gustavo. It's a level 0 spell that heals 1d4 HP once a day. A mechanic who selects Repair Drone as their first Mechanic Trick (which I suspect will be very popular), will be outpacing that immediately, and even one who doesn't will be able to hit right around the average of mending at the same level. This is hardly gamebreaking.
Expect table variation.
I expect almost all drones are larger than one bulk, yet the spell description specifically mentions working on constructs.
At least it is clear that Make Whole works since it says:
Targets one object of up to 1 bulk/level or one construct of any size
Until it is clarified, I plan to allow it at my tables as a GM. As has been noted, it is once a day.
