Let's say I'm a Warpriest and want to MC into Sorcerer, I get Sorcerer Dedication at level 2, then I get Basic Sorcerer Spellcasting at 4. What does Basic Sorcerer Spellcasting Enable me to get? Does it let me cast 1st and 2nd level Sorc spells (my choice of either arcane/primal/divine/occult depending on which one i choose) or how does it work? Thanks for all your help, still trying to wrap my head around caster MC'ing.

Basic Spellcasting Feat: Available at 4th level, these feats grant a 1st-level spell slot. At 6th level, they grant you a 2nd-level spell slot. At 8th level, they grant you a 3rd-level spell slot. Archetypes refer to these benefits as the “basic spellcasting benefits.”

It's pretty simple, really. Just read the part at the beginning of the archetypes section.

In this case, you would gain two separate spellcasting abilities, one of which follows your main spellcasting class as usual {this case Warpiest} and another based upon you MC feats {in this case Sorcerer}

For this case in particular, for your Warpiest spells, you would gain: 5 canptrips, 3 first level spells, and 3 second level spells, which you would prepare each day. The saves would be based off of your Wis Mod and Divine Spell PRof.

For your multiclassing feats of Sorcerer Dedication, and Basic Sorcerer Spellcasting, you would gain another separate list, based off these feats. On this separate list you would gain: 2 cantrips (chosen from the magic tradition of your bloodline} to your 'Sorcerer Repertoire'. You would also add 1 first level spell to your repertoire, and you would gain 1 first level spell slot. The saves and such would be based off of Cha and your Prof with the spell tradition <Note, the Dedication feat makes you trained in the spell casting traidtion of your bloodline. Also Basic Sorcerer spellcasting does not get you 2nd level spell slot until you reach Level 6, based on page 219.)


Another thing to note. If say you choose a Divine bloodline, spellcasting mod for your Sorcerer spells would still be Cha based. {though you would still use your Divine Spellcasting Prof for both, whichever one would give you a better prof.} So far, the only combination of classes which uses both the same Spellcasting Prof, and ability Mod is a combo of Sorcerer<Occult> and Bard.

The specific spellcasting rules are Chapter 3: Classes / Archetypes / Spellcasting Archetypes

When you take sorc dedication you have to choose your bloodline.

Depends the bloodline you will get 2 skills and your spell list ( arcane, primal, occult or divine ).

You will know 1 spell per level, and you will learn another one when you will be able to cast more spells ( and since you are with a sorc dedication, you will need thr lvl 8 feat bredth ).

Ring of wizardly, if you are going to pursue the arcane path, won't allow you to learn more spells, even if you will be able to cast more.


Ohh I see, if I were to go Bard dedication I would need Bard Dedication + Basic Bard Spellcasting and by level 8 I would have 1 first level, 1 second level, 1 third level spell. So in order for me to get more spells per level as I would like to have additional True Strikes I would need to take Occult Breadth to get 2 True Strikes basically?

Yes.

By lvl 8, with bredth, you will have 1 extra lvl 1 spell.

You will also know another lvl 1 spell ( you know 1 spell of a specific lvl per spell slot ).

I suggest you to take sorc dedication with Imperial or Draconic, which will give you arcane spellcasting.

Because of that, you will be elegible for a ring of wizardly, which will allow you to use extra slots.

You won't be needing to waste a feat foe bredth.

Remember also that you will have heroism because of your cleric class, and that arcane spellcasting will give you what's left

True strike
Haste
Teleports
Mind Blank


I like that, is mirror image viable for a frontliner?

I don't know.

But remember that if you cast

Heroism
Haste
Mirror Image
Etc...

The combat would be over while you are still buffing yourself.

I suggest you just to use slots for haste/true strike ( every fight,a haste ), and eventually save a dimentional door with spell signature, for the time it will be needed.
