Fun trick:

- Take 1 level of cleric and take Erastil or Gozreh/Animal Domain
- Take Sacred Huntsmaster.

Your level up scheme will look like this:

And upon reaching level 3 Sacred Huntsmaster your animal companion will start leveling up at twice the normal rate. At level 12 (cleric 1/huntsmaster 11) the animal companion will cap at level 16 as if you were a level 20 character.

Some people just want to know they won't be penalized by games for not being an autistic savant min maxer carefully planning out every single level up for hours before even approaching the game.
But you can get that info from my page too

Whatever
Don't know why some people want Lilura back when you have a Yosha right here.

Yosh is being entirely reasonable here. On the other hand fucking things up then getting better is part of the fun. But only if you're getting better and not arbitrarily sucking because gotta be urself.

There's a set of gloves that grants +4 ranged AB available very early
Lol this was the item that made me join Codex since it let me use weapons with Octavia. Also nice to counteract the malus on the Big Acid bow.

You can get there ranged without it but of course a big help. Ranged Jae straight Inq was nuts. Though I think melee might have been better since they didn't implement any ranged TW feats.

So you want a guide on how to build a character but you don't like following other people's guides

I probably just wanted confirmation that I didn’t need to follow a guide because I didn’t really want to anyways, I would probably open the link and get bored. I’m happy for your contribution straight from the autistic community though.

It's not autistic to point out that the ruleset itself was designed to avoid the problem you're worried about (unless you try to play 3.5 instead and do it badly).

I spent 4 hours tonight researching and re-building my character. I think I have an OK handle on how the stats work. I realized that I really fucked up my first attempt by building blindly. I used STR as a dump stat, which is kind of dumb with Rangers. I put too much into WIS, was using a composite bow without realizing how its damage scales, and etc. I'm going to try to do a pure Ranger build.

I made it through Oleg's, which was much easier this time around as I'm learning how to cheese with placement by having the Barbarian lady kite the enemies around while I shoot them. Honestly, the hardest, most RNG-heavy, fight of the entire game thus far has been the random encounter between the opening castle and Oleg's. It's 3 tigers that rip your shit up and you have no skills or anything to deal with them, so I just reloaded endlessly until they all died. It was tedious.

Oleg's fights were easier because I had a level up to play with by then, so I reloaded and tried different things. The only issue is I've been scrambling to find skills and builds for my companions, but there are so many, and I don't know what's good.

Why are the people who play this game so fucking bitchy? Usually Codexers are pretty friendly and helpful when it comes to games, but this thread is all assholes pushing their 1998 style GameFAQs and getting massively butthurt if you don't use them.

Want to see people get bitchy? Try telling someone they're doing it wrong.

Which you are.

It's like you're re-enacting the InEffective origin story right before our eyes.

Appreciate you getting into the game tho. There are other ways to approach it. Wish you could have been there for the Golden Age.

Bitch, please. My autism dictates that every single game I've ever played since the age of 15 has to be played on the hardest difficulty. And I finish nearly every game I start. I've never played a Pathfinder game before, but the only thing difficult about this game thus far is the fact that I'm currently unfamiliar with the PF system, which is changing every hour I play it. That's how all games work. I'm not going to read your shitty faq and just follow word for word what someone else tells me to do. There's no fun in that.

He is not giving you bad advice, in the sense that every stat is valuable (and more). It is, obviously, your call how you invest your stats, and play, but dismissing wisdom by saying that "my intelligence is high enough" is not an idea that holds water, most of the time.

It's actually more important that you maintain your alignment choices than your stat choices. Heh. :)

Your butthurt spam has convinced me...

You can play the hardest difficulty soon enough. But starting there warps your experience of the game and precludes your ability to develop the understanding and skills to thrive there. I'm sorry you grew up on shitty games where you had to play on the highest difficulty to give yourself any challenge at all. This one is a throwback to the time where we didn't have to do that.

I've never kited this game in my life, or any game. Never had to.
