I remember Ari posted some fixes for the shadowcaster here, like bonus mysteries based on Int. I can't remember all of them however... did anyone save those somewhere, perhaps? I have a MIGHTY NEED of them!
Well, the shadowcaster's casting has always been both Int- and Cha-based, and the MAD used to be a lot more problematic before this latest round of changes. By basing both bonus mysteries and DC on one stat, it makes it easier for a shadowcaster to be effective at higher levels. I kept the INT requirement for highest level of mysteries known because I wanted to keep INT involved to at least some extent.Nifft said:Charisma, hmmm. Not sure I like that change. Intelligence is IMHO the strongest casting stat, and thus made up (a bit) for the weakness of the Shadowcaster's actual magic.
Charisma is the weakest single stat, and split-stat casting is weakest of all. (Sure, it could be worse -- it could be a split between Charisma and Wisdom -- but still, yurk!)
Will do. With play by post that might take a while to get even there though.wykthor said:Corsair, normally they can´t quicken, but that Favored Soul had Rapid Metamagic Feat from Complete Mage that enabled them to use metamagic without hindrance ;-)
Erekose, I'd appreciate if you input later your impressions about the shadowcaster in play at lower levels (especially from lvls 3-8)
