CON is king, it even gives you your number of spare Magnum Opus per day, and works on craft sculptures too which is hilarious.

Other than that, while your astral construct (that's what it is... remember that for feats, I think there's a handful that help) is capable of melee attacks - I like to think of it as a Force unit - you're still a kineticist, and only the level 1 starting blast got replaced. Blast and wild ability improvements are still wanted as normal, but remember you now qualify for shit like empowered shots, psionic shot, etc etc because you're a psi entity.

So I got invited to a game and decided to play a Kensai Magus. Been in it 2 sessions now and we're all level 2, though this DM allows most 3rd party stuff, including spells from 1001 Spells.

Well now I know what to make the next encounter for my players.

>> No.50432192

Feats you absolutely want:
>Augmented Elements
Get your utiliy talent back (this is mainly if you pick aether or really want the starter talent), and you also get a normal blast which may or may not be better than an extra punch, but is good for versatility and qualifying for composites down the line.
>Boost Construct
A huge permanent boost to your stand's power and versatility, this should be a very early choice, if not your first choice.

>Precise shot
Kineticists still need this if you're using your normal kinetic blasts. It's kind of sad. Hope your GM is sensible enough to homerule it out.
If you take blasts that target touch, you don't need it so much.

Feats that are nice to have:
>Advanced constructs
Optional. The new options it gives you aren't actually that good until the third tier, though even though you teleport your stand next to them, Reach is deceptively still useful if you want to do a lot of checking casters/ranged builds.
>Psicrystal Containment
You qualify for this feat. Always nice to have a scout.

I've gone too far and I don't want to stop.

>> No.50432231

So I have an idea for a Shadow Oracle with the Blackened curse. I like the flavor and spells of Blackened but the penalty to weapons is a bit much, and I want to develop her as an avid follower of Desna. Since the penalty drops to -2 at level 10 to hit with Weapons, if at level 11 I took Divine Fighting Technique to get Cha to hit/dmg with a Starknife would that be alright? I plan on having a high Cha anyways for spells, spellcasting, spell DC's for my Shadow spells.

Also any other things I can do to sure up that -2? I'm not looking to optimize to the ends of the earth, just make it fun but functional. Also feat suggestions for doing cool stuff with a Starknife would be appreciated as well.

Is the avowed's Aether Pulse a spell-like or a spell outright?

I believe it's the former, but I'd rather make sure.

It's a spell-like.

Hell, the entire text of it makes a dozen references to the fact it's a SLA.

>> No.50432822

So, if one were multiclassed or gestalt - it would likely be compensated for by the much lower damage in the former case - and used a conductive weapon, it would be possible to use Aether Channel (swift), and on one of the channeled attacks, charge a target, and activate conductive to channel an Aether Lance into them on hit?

Okay i got Psionic Body as my first level feat, so ill get Augmented Elements at level 3.
Having Wild Talent + Psionic Talent meant Psibody gave me 6 hp, which seemed good.

>> No.50432871

For one thing, conductive melee weapons only work with abilities that are melee touch attacks, so aether lance is out no matter what.
Second, that falls under the rule that you can't use two different shapes per round.

>Psionic body
Holy fuck why, maybe it's useful at level 1 if your GM is going to shank you, but it's otherwise an awful option that pales in usefulness compared to what all those other feats could give you.
Do you even understand how your class abilities work if Boost Construct isn't on your priority list?

>> No.50432950

actually: You may only give one shape and modulation to a given aether pulse. The part that prevents the use anon asks about is that if you are using an ONGOING pulse, you cannot use any other different pulses "unless otherwise specified".

You can (here comes the exception) use Aether Shield despite other ongoing shapes being active, IF you have the Aether Armory feat.

However if you had an ability that lets you fire off a weapon attack as part of a pulse, and that weapon were conductive, then you could have it carry a second, entirely different pulse if you wish, so long as it fits the conductive rules.

>> No.50433093

I allowed it a few times in 3.0, and I regret it. But, the player was a munchkin.

I just checked; Vital Strike works with this, so whatever number of dice you hit, you can double it (and eventually triple and quadruple it)

So, half-orc to take the mighty frame feat so you can just straight up have a large sniper rifle base, then you take a class that gives you EFlux so you can take that stance for, when you're in earth attunement, it makes your weapon count as a size larger (two sizes larger at level 10), then you slap on enlarge person at.

At level 11, assuming you've taken Improved Vital Strike, this thing deals 48d6 damage in a single shot.

Hopefully, you have a mage cast true strike on you so you can do a called shot to the head with little fanfare.

That's 168 DPR. Throw in the typical enchants and small amount of static bonuses you can get to it, say, at least dex to damage and a +3 weapon, and you're cleanly in the "is doing his damned job" range of primary attackers.

>> No.50435292

With single shots, at that. Nearly unprecedented in Pathfinder and associated systems.

Since you're an initiator (given you have that one EFlux stance) I wonder what boosts you can apply to this thing to make it crazier. I haven't really looked into ranged initiators before. Go with a Gunsmoke Mystic for free ammo and you're stylin.

Worth noting is that the sniper rifle can be crafted with gunsmithing, making it accessible even to characters without access to high tech labs and shit. That's an understated but extremely important benefit.

>> No.50435329


Mighty Frame feat? is that 1pp or 3pp, and what book is it from?

>> No.50435336

Issue with that is that Vital Strike doesn't work with Initiating.

>> No.50435412

Trust me, ranged initiators may not have the support the melees get but they truly can shine.

First, consider that the Warsoul's the only reasonable way to get use out of the tech energy weapons. Even though older firearms hit way harder, if you want to use these, well, that's the only way that isn't a gigantic trap.

Second, while many disciplines will have "melee attack" maneuvers you can't touch with a ranged weapon, many other maneuvers remain available and can even be a better trick at range. Prime among these is Silver Spiral Strike, which is just meh if you're using a greatsword, but will wipe an army off the map if used with a machinegun (that's a lot of attacks on a lot of enemies that just happen to fire out as lines...)

Finally, big guns get big boosts from big bigger; when your weapon deals damage as two sizes larger, and you were already wielding a large Hackbut, shit gets nasty fast.

But, don't just take my word for it.
Use Hunting Zephyr on a stalker who put his critical-multiplier-up onto his favorite gun, and remember to have boosted with phantom sunstorm first.

Speaking of slick bloodline powers, if you want you could become a Bloodrager; http://www.d20pfsrd.com/classes/hybrid-classes/bloodrager, it's basically everything you want out of a Barbarian (minus Rage powers, which you can get from an archetype) plus some abilities such as Elemental (http://www.d20pfsrd.com/classes/hybrid-classes/bloodrager/bloodrager-bloodlines/paizo---bloodrager-bloodlines/elemental)

Part of the joy of Dark Souls is the visceral pleasure and the sense of accomplishment from finally triumphing over that one point or boss that has killed you time and time again. It is the emotional shock of vicariously slipping yourself into the game world, experiencing the despair, loss, and rage your character does, and discovering the the great world and lore implications of your surroundings.

It is not something that one can just watch, otherwise there is no impact, and the game thrives on the impact felt personally by each player as they draw their own conclusions about the game.

>What is more powerful than killing this single target and trapping its soul if you manage to hit and don't get countered
Well if you wanna be specific to Septennial Seal the answers start aaaaaaallllllll the way back with Emergency Force Sphere.

But, let's take what it can do: On a hit (Melee only, requires hit, miss chance % may exist and apply, could be countered), Will save (nice and high, admittedly) or die (death type effect; some immunities may exist/apply), and if the save is made you instead take damage+13d6. Success takes out ONE target from the equation. So did shooting it in the face, so the only real advantage is the trap-the-soul effect (but with more limitations/restrictions and always allowing a save).

So... What's more of an impact on the adventure or a campaign as a whole? Anything at all that does more than *kill one guy real dead*.

True Seeing (available much earlier) is a start; it could help you unravel an entire mystery in seconds.

Teleport and Greater Teleport can allow you to skip not just one guy of an encounter but entire encounters or entire SERIES of encounters AND the travel time by simply skipping over travel. It's like when you're in the endgame in old console RPGs and simply cast Return to all the nearby cities and major dungeons to save yourself all the walking and random encounters every single time. One does not simply walk into mordor, but one CAN just telefrag the ring or have it and gollum pop right over the lava and be done with it.

Fabricate can instantly create large amounts of processed materials, which can save months or completely alter an entire encounter by turning an ambush into an ill-planned raid against your instant fortress.

Geas, Suggestions, Dominate, etc can all completely turn someone around; trap the soul traps the soul; these things make him work for you instead.

Limited Wish, motherfucker.

Its not. It has shitty writing, poorly designed enemies, the worst collection of bosses of the franchise, a story that makes less sense than normal for DS, the stupid "cycles and reincarnation" meme, and for the longest time had the shittiest game balance of all.

DS3 is better in regards to story, gameplay, and feel as a souls game. Plus most of the bosses (except for about 2) Are really awesome and fun to fight. In terms of gameplay feels more like a more polished version of DS1, with a few DS2-isms.

I don't know why the argument for "X PoW thing isn't broken" is "here are things that casters can do that are more broken". Something else breaking the game should not be an argument for game breaking things.

We've discussed before, one of the biggest issues in PoW to normal character is a tier 3 character (Magus, Inquisitor, Alchemist, Bard) are completely left in the dust in combat, especially in terms of defense due to how counters are designed.

In games I have run this problem has become very apparent. One can not challenge the defense of the Bard and the Warder simultaneously, the Warder is many times more resilient (hell he is more resilient than tier 1 characters). If I do something to challenge his defense the Bard will simply die, if I challenge the Bard's defense the Warder doesn't feel a tickle.

This is a problem as it does not encourage mixed parties.

Heck, an initator can accomplish the following:
>General Support

The only things it can do is Battlefield Control and a lot of Out of Combat utility. This is a huge divide as in those four combat roles it severely outperforms tier 3 characters.

What does a Magus bring to the table that a Warlord does not do simply better?
