Pathfinder 2e 4th printing in print


Pathfinder Second Edition General Discussion


Hi all,
as the topic says: was the 4th printing of the pdf ever actually printed, in particular in the pocket edition format?

Cheers,
Antonio


Not sure about Pocket Format, but it was printed in regular format. Then the OGL debacle happened and they sold like 8 months worth of books in 3 weeks or soemthing. I doubt they printed more after that since they started working on the remaster very shortly thereafter.


The hardcover version of the 4th printing is still available, as is the PDF
Core Rulebook, hardcover.

but the pocket edition is not
Core Rulebook, Pocket Edition

I have looked around in many FLGS, but all I could find was the hardcover 3rd printing, and no pocket editions at all. Unfortunately ordering from Paizo's website is not a possibility, as I am in UK, and the shipping expenses would be excessive.

TBH you shouldn't buy it at this point anyway unless you're a collector. Your local shops should have the remaster in less than two weeks.

I am not a collector, but I spent a hefty sum already on a lot of PF2e pdfs, and I don't plan to get the revised edition as I don't like most of the changes, so the idea was to get print versions which match as close as possible the pdfs I have.

Huh. Weird take when most of the changes amount to name changes and buffs to weak options, but fair enough.

I don't find it weird at all. If you've got a pile of stuff that uses a particular "language", it makes a great deal of sense to me that you wouldn't want to have to keep translating back and forth between the different names and mathematical adjustments when a much simpler solution is available in your preferred format.

We've already had one thread here shut down over people angry about one change and it's impact on the game, and that same topic is occupying multiple topics on reddit.

That one is a major change to the game's meta too - though it only occupies two identical sentences and so is easy to ignore.

Revisions to Witch, Cleric, and Wizard are also pretty massive - though I like these myself, if a person did not like them they're not as easy to ignore.

There is another thread going on right now here that seems to have devolved into a flame way in the last few hours over things people are upset about.

So... the OPs take isn't mine - but it's not entirely pointless. If all of these changes were something someone didn't like, not moving into them would make sense for them.
