How do you be proficient with all martial weapons as a pure wizard, or alternatively a pure arcanist?

>> No.44689569

>>44689557
Take lots of martial proficiency feats or deal with not being proficient in weapons as a sissy caster.

>> No.44689598

Exactly what do you need that for?

>>44689569
You don't have enough feat slots for _all_ martial weapons.

Isn't Martial Weapon Proficiency one feat?

For one weapon, it's an awful feat.

It's one feat that gives you proficiency with /one/ martial weapon

Is there any way to get a permanent duration Triggered Suggestion, or similar effects?

Some of the group found out their wildest wishes may come true... But if you ask me, the only thing we found out is that we (or at this rate, more likely just I) have to kill a god and its highest agents before (at this rate the party) before everything dies.

It's amazing how promise of a little power can make people forget they wrote NG up on their sheets.

That's what happens when you play Pathfinder. Slow combat. If you want fast paced combat, switch to Dungeon World.

My favorite monster I designed was probably pic related.

My favorite EVER is Illurien of the Myriad Glimpses.

Dip fighter, take Magical Knack trait to compensate CL loss for the dip and EK 1st level. You're good.

Be an Outsider, it comes with all martial weapon proficienciess. Tiefling wizards are nice.

>> No.44689916

>>44689810
The combat wasn't really slower than usual, it was more that the party spent a lot of time housekeeping and doing other things. I would like to see combat speed up a little bit, but not to the point where I have to play a "game" like Dungeon World to see it happen.

No, it doesn't. Tieflings don't get any proficiencies for free.

I think that got FAQ'd out of existence.

>> No.44689961

>>44689888
In all fairness, that's an extremely reasonable attitude in such a setting.

Consider people who do research until they die.

Now imagine they could, with the right methods, either avoid dying, or continue researching even after they die.

You still got shit to do!

The ghost teacher in Harry Potter. He was so stuck in his ways he dropped dead one day but still got up and went to class anyway.

>> No.44690093

>>44689995
False. The sections on inherent features and features of racial HD are kept separate. Tieflings have Darkvision 60ft and proficiency with all simple and martial weapons from their creature type. That's what creature types do. They only do not get Outsider HD for their class levels and the things that come with that, and they do not get the things the Native subtype removes, like the resurrection/breathing entries.

>>44690022
They're not in the rules. Errata gets them in the rules, otherwise it's EXTREMELY unreasonable to expect the standard game to memorize every scattered and/or factually incorrect FAQ answer.

The second difference is that all of these race types are 0-Hit Dice creatures, which means that their Hit Dice, base attack bonus, saving throw progression, skill points, class skills, and weapon and armor proficiencies are based on the class levels each member of a race takes.

Mine was disappointing. The DM that ran is normally somewhat distracted (a total bro and is generally a good DM, but it can take a bit to get an answer sometimes). He was especially distracted last session. To top it off, when I would ask things people would start talking over me distracting the GM further. Then one of the other players got buttmad because I literally said nothing he would have to say about what to do next matters until we I know what was down the hallway I looked down almost 20 real life minutes ago, had asked 5 times at that point and was still waiting for an answer.

You know what is really unreasonable? Thinking that any DM will allow you to use Tiefling and stupid RAW to go pure wizard into EK.

Why arent YOU calling skalds bardbarians? It's the superior name.

>> No.44690328

>>44690238
I hate it when that happens. It is sometimes handy to stop talking through skype, and simply PM the GM (Through the /w command on Roll20) during the session to clarify things.
