    Ah, thank you. I'll look into that.

    Unrelated, but I just found this and it gave me a chuckle.

    Are they trying to subvert expectations or something? :?

    Just a word of warning, there is a good chance that changing the Difficulty, even Core > Hard >Unfair, could auto-fail all difficulty-related achievements.

    Unless they've changed how this works, doing anything to your difficulty after you start immediately sets it to "Custom" and makes you ineligible for any achievements that require a difficulty setting.

    Also really strong with Vital Strike and large damage dice weapons. Can True Strike/Arcane Accuracy/Dimension Strike. Perfect Strike maximizes Vital Strike hits. Also Greater Cleaving Finish triggers more Vital Strikes. Just saying.

    So this happens when you cast Transformation on an ally using Legend Infusion or Brown Fur Transmuter MC:

    I do not get how this works, does your alch or BfT need to be on the legend mythic path to give 40 bab ?

    Long story short - Brown Fur Transmuter is bugged to hell and back (in a breaking game balance sort of way). See my posts about polymorphing dogs to cats for another example a few pages back.

    I wasn't expecting much from the crusade mechanic to begin with but I cannot believe how atrocious it is. Why did they even a base cap of 3 units per army? At the very least, having a general in an army should at least double that to 6. Scorching ray & fireball are powerful to point that it trivializes everything else, there is no unit balance to speak of and units aren't even stated as they are described in the army council. The designers didn't seem to understand that the total recruitment numbers per week is what determines unit durability and seem to love the total extremes of units in terms of HP and damage.

    Why does anyone on the codex care about achievements? The fact that core and above are supposed to disable respecing is ridiculous unless you turn it on and lose achievements, especially when you have to take mythic abilities into account which you wouldn’t know unless you looked them up beforehand. Also, people are always testing things with difficulty setting as well so making that disable them is even more retarded. Why even bother?

    Certainly Fireball is crazily OP in campaign mode. My general just one shot a level 7 army with it.

    Also playing as a lich and keeping one living army and the undead army is a gyga pain because after battle using my living army it leaves raised undead as a separate army... it's maddening.

    It can only work with your main character, and only if they are on the Legend path. This path results in a character level cap of 40, meaning that transformation spells YOU cast inherit your maximum BAB i.e. up to 40 at max level

    No, your Merc/companion BFT casting Transformation will result in a maximum of 20 BAB

    Hey, anyone playing Legend can tell me if, when leveling their second class, did the level up screen display Legend's +4 to attributes correctly?

    I was playing with the toybox mod to cook up some characters and I noticed that, when picking feats, the attributes were displayed without the enhancement bonus and it didn't count for qualifying for feats gated behind attributes. It's quite possible it's because of the mod, but it made me curious.

    Pathfinder lore isn't great. It's got all the worst parts of Forgotten Realms with its own terrible twists. But Pathfinder space lore is something else. The divine rock of mysterious origins? Just a space wars orbital weapon. The ancient atlanteans? They didn't die, they just fucked off and became space ultra nazis instead. Turns out God-King Aroden wasn't 'the last atlantean' after all. Golarion? It's the one planet of renaissance faire morons, the rest of the galaxy is filled with star trek humans. No they won't show up. Androids and nanites are actually all over the planet, by the way. Thankfully, Numeria has an export ban in place so that's why people don't know anything about robots lmao.

    Sure, I personally don't care about space shit. But everything related to Numeria is Reign of Winter tier. Just irredeemable. I'd much prefer Owlcat just made a Starfinder / Original Sci Fi game and explored Golarion itself. There's so much potential. Faction conflict in Taldor's succession, investigating murder mysteries with sanity mechanics with Ustalav, creating and quelching a revolution in infernal Cheliax.

    What sort of inbred came up with the idea that your mythic spells should only scale by your mythic level if you don't merge spell books? Merging spellbooks is already broken to the point of trivializing the game, but the alternate is that you will never pass an offensive spell DC.

    Honestly owlcat surprises me at each point, it's as if they are making some stuff so broken as to make it so you completely faceroll the game while making the alternatives so bad that you won't ever even get to apply its effects in encounters.

    This game is so frustrating, the good parts are really good and enjoyable, but the bad parts are either completely unusable or borderline dealbreaking. That's ignoring all the gamebreaking oversights.

    Pathfinder, more like trap choice finder.

    Disagreed; Starfinder lacks full casters. It has only half caster aka technomancer. I don't wanna to be a lv 20 caster unable to cast tier 7 spells.

    EDIT : Why my steam is not updating? I wanna test tier 10 spells.

    Disagreed. Favorable magic from Azata is amazing.

    Owlcat's balance passes are amateurish at best. The notion that they wouldn't implement muskets because they are supposedly overpowered is laughable given that every other feature in Wrath tend to completely invalidate the game. I considered playing an Oracle Angel merge but now I can't conceive of doing so. Maybe if this was my first RPG. But no hobbyist worth it's salt should spellbook merge. Wrath has Dragon Age: Origins tier design and Spellbook Merging is the return of Mana Clash.

    Meh. Iron Gods is about being an android and using laser guns. I couldn't care less about it. I want to be a caster and I want my caster gameplay to be fulfilling. This means I want a setting that supports it and a game system that comes broken out of the box.
    Un-merged books have garbage DCs. Doesn't matter if you stack misfortune when enemies auto pass. And Favorable Magic is not a fraction of the sheer stupidity of Merged Spellbooks. You might as well use the console and activate god mode.
