Threadly reminder that Swashbuckler is the best class in Pathfinder

>> No.40265128

I'm back with a couple of questions about the Eidolon.

So on level 4 as a half-elf I have 11 Evolution Points right?

So I came up with something like this work:

Quadruped base form
-Pounce (1pts)
-3xTentacles (3pts)
-Grab (Tentacle) (2 pts)
-Ability Score Increase (Str) (2pts)
-Improved Natural Armor (1 pts)
-Shadow Form (2pts)

The basic idea is to pounce at something, make three grappling attacks with tentacles, hopefylly grab something with them for an easy and powerful bite. The Shadow Form is there because I like the concealment and it's thematic with the background of the Eidolon. I'm pondering switching it for a higher base bonus damage for bite attack, but I don't know.

Could this work or am I doing this entirely wrong?

6: Superstition

8: Witch Hunter
9: Rapid Grappler
10: Spell Sunder
11: Improved Sunder

15: Improved Iron Will
16: Improved DR
17: <Feat>
18: Improved DR
19: <Feat>
20: Improved DR

I suppose you can swap IUS to level 1, Improved Grapple to level 3 and Power Attack to level 5, but I figured being able to have a nasty bite from the get-go would be better for when you don't yet have Grab.

TWF would be the obvious suggestion, but I'm going to say something crazy and suggest mostly throwing daggers. The Underhanded talent allows you to maximize sneak attack damage in the surprise round with a hidden weapon, and as a knife master that's your schtick. If you know you can avoid getting flanked, take the Scout archetype as well. It stacks, and at level 8 moving 10 feet gives you another sneak attack. You can even go for dodge/mobility/spring attack if you want to get into close range, and take the Slow Reactions/Confounding Blades or Offensive Defense talents to move out of range without retaliation. If you have enough gold Sniper Goggles also give +2 damage for each sneak attack die you roll. Vital Strike tree also is useful for boosting damage if you're going for single attacks.

Just make your decision early on, you're most likely either going to be chucking a load of knives with TWF with the option of being a close-range TWF Rogue, or go for the mid-range knife thrower with hit and run melee. You aren't going to manage both without being higher level.

It's a solid T4 class for people who don't want spells at all.

Just because it's not as strong as those options you mentioned doesn't mean that it's not a valid class. There's nothing wrong with playing a lower tier class if it suits your fancy.

The guy seems pretty intent on playing something without spells, which means all three of those options are absolutely not what he wants.

Guardian I don't have any experience with, but it seems like it'd be nice if you play very proactively, attempting to prevent your group from ever really needing REAL healing with lots of Vigor and DR and stuff.

Life Leech Sadist Soulthief is just the most offensive of the Vitalist options, which means it'll generally be more fun for people who aren't big on the healer/buffer role.

Why is Mithral Current so poorly-edited? Just at a glance, Following Wake and Ride the Wake's summaries blatantly contradict their full text.

>Following Wake: Boost - when you charge a foe make a free trip attempt against them, using Perform (Dance) in place of CMB roll. This does not provoke an attack of opportunity

>By utilizing the momentum of their body and blade the disciple turns their strike into a disabling attack that leaves their opponent on the ground. The next time you make an attack this round this round, you can make a free trip attempt against the target of your attack that does not provoke Attacks of Opportunity. This combat maneuver uses Perform(Dance) instead of your CMB when making this trip attempt.

>Ride the Wake: Boost - if you draw your weapon as part of your attack, you can move up to your speed as a free action after the attack. This movement still provokes Attacks of Opportunity as normal.

>To stop moving is to die, and the Disciple acknowledges this by continuing their movement even after attacking their foe. If you drew your weapon as part of making an attack, you can initiate this boost to move up to your speed speed as a free action after the attack has resolved. This movement does not provoke attacks of opportunity.

The rule of thumb is "it's a monster-girl if there's a clear split between animal trait and human trait."

>> No.40274387

>>40274254
There are a few problems with the idea:
- Summoners have delayed casting. Cutting that up with multiclassing will really fuck you over. Well, if you use the APG version, you could sort of make up for it with their discounted spell levels.
- Cleric channeling and domain powers are pretty rad, and you'd be missing out on it. Even if you didn't care, you'll need to skip 4 whole levels of Cleric just to get Summoner spells to 2nd level, so even the pure spellcasting part of Cleric suffers
- Most importantly, you're poor Eidolon is going to drop off hard. Unless it's built specifically for skills and scouting. (Which is actually quite possible; You can get +23 Stealth on a level 1 Eidolon) It's going to be useless in combat thanks to low Hit Dice and evolution points.

Overall, I say pick one of the two classes and play in the style of the other. If you want a Cleric, imagine playing a Summoner who builds their Eidolon to look like a favored minion of your chosen Diety. The Inner Sea Gods book has a great section about this. Or simply play a Cleric and take the Sacred Summons feat, which lets you Standard-action summon things from the SM list that match your alignment. Either way, if you REALLY want to dip into the other class' features, just use the Variant Multiclass System from Unchained. At least that way you'll be giving up feats instead of progression on class abilities that NEED to progress to stay relevant.

Also, as a note Claws are the most efficient way to stack attacks on a murderous pouncebeast. 1 point for 2 primary attacks versus 1 point for a single secondary attack. Remember, secondaries suffer a -5 to hit and only use half your strength bonus to damage. Plus, claws can also be boosted with great evolutions like Rend and Grab, and quadrupeds even get Rake, which is basically Even More Claws.

>> No.40274424

>>40274387
Oh and I forgot to mention, Mystic Theurge in general is pretty suboptimal if you want to use any features beyond just casting spells, or if you want your actual spell list(s) to matter a whole bunch. AND you're splitting your focus further because most divine/arcane combinations don't share the same casting stat, messing you up in point buys or all but the most generous of roll systems.

And nevermind the fact that after 16th level or so, you have to go back to one of your two (now hobbled) casting classes, meaning your other one will suffer atrophy right when you're hitting the big leagues.

There used to be one great way to use Mystic Theurge. In Pathfinder Society, which generally caps out at 12th level. The trick was to use a race with a higher level Spell-Like Ability to meet the prerequisite of casting a 2nd level Divine spell (back before they FAQ'd this option into oblivion) and picking up Cleric with Trickery domain as your divine, since the sort-of Mirror Image counted as a 2nd level spell as well. The only limitation was having 3 ranks of skills.

An Aasimar Wizard 2/Cleric1 could jump right into MT at level 4, Not only would you keep both spell lists somewhat up to date, but you'd cap out just before you finished the prestige class only to find yourself with your thumb up your ass for the last half dozen levels or so.

>Also, as a note Claws are the most efficient way to stack attacks on a murderous pouncebeast. 1 point for 2 primary attacks versus 1 point for a single secondary attack.

Well, yeah, but you have to have limbs to take claws and limbs is a 2pts Evolution. So it's actually 1pt for a secondary attack vs 3pts for two primary attacks. So 3 secondary for 2 primary.

And the idea is not to jump at things and tear them apart, that's efficient and boring. The idea is to jump at things and grapple them with tentacles, bite them, then eat them.

That said, I will probably stick to pure Summoner. I'm playing a Synthesist anyway, so an argument could be made that I could just take defensive Evolutions like Shadow Form and Shadow Blend and that's really something I'm considering, but I don't know. For now I will just stcik with Summoner, maybe I will change my mind later.

True, but quads start with front Legs that can get claws. So your first pair of claws is cheap as chips. Plus, if you give your Eidolon some arms in order to give it claws, you've also given it the ability to do all that stuff that requires hands, which is a whole lot.

4 Tentacles: 4 evolution points
4 claws on a Quadruped: 4 evolution points, counting the Arms evolution
And again, these are Primary attacks, making them the only reasonable option before Summoner level 9, when the Eidolon gets Multiattack as a bonus feat. And even then, it's still a -2 to hit and it's still one half strength mod to damage.

Between 4 claws and a free Bite, you'll be brushing up against the Max Attacks well before the cap for Evo points becomes an issue.

>Synthesist thread
I think I'm in love. I'm currently playing one with a level dip in MomS, snake and panther so I can run around a battle and punch everything at once. Twice. Thinking of taking a second level of MomS at level 7, pick up wolf style and savage for the mad debuffs. However, having more than two styles means I lose my swift action most times to make use of it, and that can't be fixed until level 9 if I get that free action switch.
Also, does this feat let you use the chosen natural weapon instead of unarmed attacks for attacks from styles that specify unarmed attacks?

Bad idea. Eidolon will suck. Summon Monster SLA won't scale either. Mystic Theurge in general is just bad. Taking a class which has scaling abilities that do not scale in Theurge just makes it worse.

You want stuff that works in Theurge? Pick classes that either have abilities which scale based on caster level, classes who you can trade out abilities to gain significant bonuses early on with via archetypes, classes who's abilities are subpar or you don't mind missing, or finally classes who's abilities require MAD where in both classes require the same stat secondary or each others stats.

In other words, think:
>Arcanist (Blade Adept), Arcanist (White Mage), Arcanist (Brown Fur Transmuter) or Arcanist (Spell Specialist)
>Magus (Card Caster), Magus (Spire Defender), Magus (Elemental Knight), Magus (Kapenia Dancer), Magus (Kensai)
>Oracle (Community Guardian), Oracle (Dual-Cursed), Oracle (Psychic Searcher)
>Sorcerer (Wishcrafter)
>If you MUST go Summoner at all: Summoner (Synthesist), Summoner (Blood God Disciple)
>Shaman (Visionary) or Shaman (Speaker for the Past)
>Witch (Winter Witch), Witch (Cartomancer), Witch (Gravewalker), Witch (Scarred Witch Doctor), Witch (Veneficius Witch), Witch (Hedge Witch), Witch (White-Haired Witch)
>Wizard (Cruoromancer), Wizard (Shadowcaster), Wizard (Spellslinger), Wizard (Thassilonian Specialist)
>Any hexes/revelations/bloodlines/etc. should be or have passive/s (ie. bonus feats), scale based on caster level, scale based on a stat required by the other class or provide its benefit without savings throws (ie. Fortune)

The fact that a fair number of the above are never talked about should tell you why this is a bad idea.

That assumes they have wands of healing. If you're using those as your main source of healing you're probably low-level, so the chances of a random goblin shit being able to even use a wand without blowing itself up are pretty slim.
