    Pathfinder 2E How Effective Is Multiclassing?

    The initial feat is genrally weak. The basic feats are generally strong. Overall I would say it is generally worth it, but it depends on your build.

    Pathfinder 2E Greatsword Fighter vs Sword and Shield Fighter (2E Pathfinder)

    Overall I would say fighters are better off dealing damage. Make use of the +2 to hit. If you want a front line tank, then be a Champion or maybe a monk.

    Pathfinder 2E My Biggest Concern for Pathfinder 2e

    I have always though this as a major issues in all versions. There really needs to be a "flee" action. Probably requiring you to drop your weapons, gear, and take some damage, but still allowing people to walk into dragons layer, and get out. A spell would be good too. I.e. "Emergency Exit"...

    Pathfinder 2E Low-level Wizards in PF2 - are they still underpowered?

    Some quick math... Electric arc (2 actions) does 1d4+4*2 targets = 13 * 50% = 6.5. +6.5 * .5 (save for half) =9.75 And once per 10 minute rest, evokers (since I am comparing damage) can fling a 1d4+1 force bolt for 1 action. = 13.25 Magic missile can take 1 to 3 actions. But with 120' range...

    Pathfinder 2E The PF2 Alchemist - how did it turn out?

    Here's my current houserules for the alchemist. Perpetual Infusion (lesser) at level 3 instead of 7 Perpetual Potency (minor) at level 7 instead of 11 Perpetual Efficacy (greater) at level 11 instead of 17 Perpetual Perfection (major) at level 17 Mutigenist gets Training in medium armor...

    Pathfinder 2E The PF2 Alchemist - how did it turn out?

    All the other classes seem very well balanced. Just the alchemist / item levels seem off. (like the 5e beastmaster). I think they just need to move Perpetual Infusions/Potency/Perfection (at-will potions that only you can use) down 5 levels. Then you would have slightly-better-than-cantrip...

    Pathfinder 2E The PF2 Alchemist - how did it turn out?

    The core concept works well. The action economy works. But the whole item list seems like it's a tier behind. By the time you get at-will 1d6 bombs, the wizard has at-will 2d6 acid splash, plus a bunch of spells. It just seems like there was miscommunication between the person who made the...

    Pathfinder 2E Are you moving from 5E to PF2?

    I would defiantly want to give it a try. But, I don't have a group at the moment.

    Pathfinder 2E It's Finally Here! The Pathfinder 2E Review

    I find it to be a lot closer to 5e than 4e. For instance, classes get a similar 5e mix at-will, short rest (focus) and long rest(daily). Fighters are just at-will for example. Spells are pretty close to 5e, getting 3 of each level, can cast in higher level slots for extra, and only the DC of...

    The Gishiest Gish

    I like arcane trickster/sorcerer. You get good damage, with booming blade + sneak attack + running away. Sneak + subtle + magical ambush (+suggesting) = win many battles before they begin. Add in haste, and you can use it for a strong off-turn attack as well and make good use of that extra speed.

    Lets design a Warlord for 5th edition

    Using the dice pool to power maneuver and combos worked fine. It was what I actually expected way back in the play test. I just wanted other, more flavorful ways of recharging the pool beside a flat X per turn. At very least, make it recharge at the end of your turn, so you have them available...

    Lets design a Warlord for 5th edition

    :) Yea. I got a chance to playtest and do some refinement after... I forget who, suggested using run-up-and-help as a reaction. I'm particularly proud of the d4 hit and damage. *You don't feel useless if you didn't get a chance to use your reactions, including if you are caught alone. *It is...

    Lets design a Warlord for 5th edition

    The study enemies to build up dice worked nice most of the time, but there where a lot of corner cases that I never got around to ironing out. Such as studying someone else to build up dice and using it on a completely different fight. In the end, using reactions as a pool just worked better...

    Lets design a Warlord for 5th edition

    I haven't played 5e in a while, and haven't played a warlord in even longer, but the best warlord version (IMO), was... Level 1; you can help as a reaction. Subclasses weapons/armor proficiency Level 2: before you take a reaction, you can move 5' per Int, up to your speed, in order to get...

    D&D 4E Mike Mearls on how D&D 4E could have looked

    IMO: If an enemy has not seen you use this trick, you gain advantage. If the enemy has fallen for the trick, you get disadvantage for a number of days equal to their intelligence.
