Book of the Dead: Bottled Sunlight attack rolls item bonus


Rules Discussion


So i noticed that Bottled Sunlight subsequents level do not have an attack bonus items, is this intentional or is it an errata? Should they follow Crystal Shard bonus item progression?


Is there any reason is should? I don't see anything that would imply that it was anything but intentional.


Without the attack bonus item and higher levels seems to struggle to hit creatures of the same or higher levels

Yeah. It's more strange because it breaks the established pattern of how bombs work more than anything.

Every bomb in the game that follows the lesser/moderate/greater/major leveling scheme has item bonuses except Bottle Sunlight, which makes it feel kind of conspicuous that this one doesn't.

It also differs from normal bombs by having a non-combat effect. To me it seems like a duration item that can be used secondarily as a bomb as opposed to bomb that is secondarily a bomb: that can be the reason it doesn't get the bonus to hit.

Looks like a mistake to me. I'd give it the same bonuses on all tiers that other bombs have.

This book's quality control really isn't giving me a lot of confidence in the upcoming Dark Archive release but what am I gonna do, not play a thaumaturge?

There is the item fortunately that gives you a bonus for all alchemical bombs.
