Ugh
« on: September 25, 2010, 09:04:16 PM »
Just purchased a D&D 4th Ed phb. After reading for a couple of hours, I went to the wizard class.

My mind is full of fuck. I might be missing something blatantly obvious after reading for such a long time, but where is the wizard's 'known powers per level' table? Or any of the class', for that matter?

Help is appreciated >.>;;;

All classes have the same number of powers per level by default.

Cool. Where do I find this list? Or is there some sort of simple algorithm I follow?

[edit] Found it. Page 29. Lol, I feel dumb now. At least I can move on with character creation, though.

Wizards can have two daily and utility powers for a given level and pick which of the two they want to use at the beginning of each day. Expanded Spellbook pushes that up to three.

Lol, I didn't have too much of a difficult time choosing spells, but when I got to rituals I realized I didn't even know who the character was; what kind of rituals would he start out with? Tenser's Floating Disk was was an easy first choice. After a while, I realized I just jumped headfirst into the creation process without even thinking. So I decided to branch it; the character is either secretive, in which case I would take Secret Page and Silence, or he is more of a Nature type that the book suggests Eladrin to be. In which case I would give him Make Whole and Gentle Repose.

Thinking of having the character lean more to the latter, rather than the former.

Also, took the Skill Training: Perception. I figure, if it comes up, I can pick up the Expanded Spellbook at level 2 for the diversity (If I feel I need it). I think that the character would benefit more from the perception rather than the additional diversity that the feat would provide. At least at the lower level.

Skill training seems like a poorly made feat to me. If you take a multi-class feat you get a new skill AND an extra ability.

D-wah? I just skipped the entire 'multi-class' thing. I'll be taking a look-see now XD.

Multi classing is pretty weak in PHB (it's basically just expanding your current options), however in PHB3, there are "hybrid" classes, which are much more intriguing...

Zeriken just drop down that senseless piece of crap and accept the warm bosom of Pathfinder.

Lol, maybe I'll look into pathfinder in a month or two, when my financial situation levels out. Then again, I've pretty much have only known D&D throughout my paper and pencil rpging life (I dabbled in VtM, once). It will be interesting to expand my gaming, especially after hearing how everyone of the RPPR plays such a wide variety of games. As a side note, I generally can't stand pdfs of books. I have to be able to physically turn the pages XD.

@Hybrid (I actually accidentally first bought the phb3, mistaking it as the phb): This is... madness. It's so good. The problem here, though, is that it will split my choices when I would gain more than 1 of a daily, encounter or at-will when I level up. And it's just kind of not what I want the character to be.

@Multiclass feat: I feel similar as I did with the Hybrid, though not quite as strongly. It doesn't really limit you in any way, other than not allowing you to enter into every class (lol). I suppose taking Warrior of the Wild would fit well with how the character is turning out, and it would train in Perception at the same time.

Don't check your finances. Pathfinder is mostly free: http://www.d20pfsrd.com/
