    OH GOD, I caught up with the drama, am I dumb or something? I don't get why he got booted. The dude is rough around the edges but cmon. A moment of silence.

    ANYHOW, anyone checked disciple of pike works as I think it is, ie the smaller your character the better bonuses you get?

    There is plenty of tools to make casters good especially later on, you can do stuff like this if you want to.

    Don't forget instant metamagic without rods as SORC. It's really more manageable than wizard.

    I am trying to press an agenda here...

    Anyway, this number is kinda less than PK actually. And even then, Fighters simply would do this consistently and, often about 5 times more damage too. On probably more powerful monsters.

    Sure I have Winter Witch planned and all, but I am not expecting miracles.

    And then you need to crawl through Chapters 1&2. Especially fun as good aligned casters on Unfair and all.

    My azata dragon pet is level 15 and I’m level 11 with mythic rank 4. Is that normal because at level 10 it was only level 10… ???

    Yes, because Azatas are assholes.

    Just the dip though, it's not gay if you just take the dip :oops:


    You'll need to get a bit creative with mythic but I think both Azata and Lich should be able to provide ample opportunities for casters. Mebbe killing potential will be a bit lower than some ultra tuned melee builds, the fuck do you care, are you a phag?

    Of course we must care. Fighters are a second class citizens, casters must be better.

    At least on higher levels.

    I think at some point my dragon was twice level than me just because.
    Russian design things.

    Take your agenda somewhere else :P
    Its not particularly high in comparison to melee hits, agreed, but its still more than enough for almost every fight. Also it was the only random caster picture I happened to have on hand, and its not exactly optimized at all. Casters also get some great AoE spells and some good utility.
    This is the real painful part, yep.

    Damage is not everything. A caster casting create undead 6 times and then, maximized/empowered cloudkill can be quite deadly. 6 damage to CON each round. And in Wrath, they are even better. Negative Eruption(lich) is a AoE harm. At caster level 34(which you can reach in game at lv 20/10mythic), and using a greater quicken rod, you can cast negative eruption twice in a round. Each cast dealing 340 damage.

    Azata? maximized/empowered chain lightning + greater quicken metamagic rod + favorable metamagic + zippy magic(...) can also dish ludicrous high damage too;

    In this game, there are some enemies which I can only kill via attribute damage. Eg? Playful darkness
    Video defeating him (open)





    At end game, he will be 35th level and you will be able to ride your havoc dragon.

    He doesn't have OP offensive spells but has a lot of amazing buffs. He can cast spell resistance and give almost 50 SR to you.

    Disagreed. Pathfinder 1E has a lot of amazing spells which aren't presente in 3.5E like Ice Prison, sirroco and tsunami.

    Also, the sorcerer with pet companion is way better than the P&P.

    Positive Energy, Touch Attacks and Attribute Drain are all easy ways to kill playful darkness.

    KM was very caster friendly. So much that I cleared it with just a banal evoker wizard moment I got webs and fireballs.

    This one, I am still butthurt that many classical HD spells like Sleep can't do anything because enemies in Ch1 already have more HD. And spell resistance.

    Drain, seen enemies immune to it. Chain lightning, would be good against trash I guess.

    For me, castor should point into enemy boss and boss should die instantly. So far, most hilarious spell for this was Banishment, that has 1 will check (as opposed to 2 from illusion) and doesn't care for death or mind immuns.

    So far, I consider the game to be much less entertaining than Kingmaker. Still, Owlcat has definitely improved on its previous game in some ways.

    ...And in some ways, it has not. For instance, it has somehow failed to realize that everyone hates swarms.

    Everyone. Including the posers who pretend that they don't.

    Lich is the best for necromancers(I wish a vampire MP). Azata is the best for every other type of caster. Favorable magic + Zippy magic is amazing.

    Disagreed. Only martials hate swarms.

    Eh, my first char would be azata because I need to get all this anime and romancing primadonna out of the way. Because I also suspect it's the least buggy one. Then I could forget about it forever.

    here, enjoy some diabetes pills I collected for it.

    This is the main reason to add them to the game. And even to make it possible to become one.

    This, but unironically. As they level, Fighters get to swing their swords or axes or whatever faster and harder. As they level, Casters start from summoning butterflies and spitting mild sulfuric acid to conjuring City-shattering Elementals and causing a rain of fucking meteors to show up wherever and whenever they want it to.

    Golly gee whiz, I wonder which of the two looks more interesting to the average player.

    Yes.

    In fact, I thought about trying to actually play 6 full caster party.

    It would probably end up horriby difficult though without abusing buffing and shapeshifting in the end, or something like that.
