Post Books of Magic Errata Here

Postby FuzzyBoots » Wed Mar 03, 2010 10:10 pm

Elementalist's skills are off. The skill values seem to assume she has a +3 bonus on her Charisma and a +2 on her Wisdom when the opposite is true. Her ability scores cost 32, not 22. Her toughness with Force Field comes out to 12 (She's listed as having a toughness save of +2 without the forcefield in her statblock even though she has an 18 CON). Her saves total is 10, not 12 (although this would make sense if they were sticking her with a 14 CON as the toughness save indicates).

The Master Magician has terribly low ability scores... and his skills suggest he should have higher ones. Based off of skill bonuses, he has an Intelligence of 16-17, a Charisma of 16-17, and a Wisdom of 30-31. His Toughness save isn't right (he has a bonus of +15 from his Force Field and and a CON bonus of +4 (assuming that ability score is correct), giving him at least a 19, which fits in with his defense being so far under caps. His description says he has a "normal Toughness bonus of +1"... och! His save bonuses don't fit his stats either, neither the ones listed nor the ones suggested by his skills.

The combat values for the Mage Slayer archetype seem too high for the character's PL. (Oh, I wish the tradeoffs were mentioned somewhere in the writeup!) I could see an attack value of 10--that would go with the apparent tradeoff of 1 point of Attack for 1 point of Damage--but 12? Too high, if Favored Opponent and Attack Focus both have to observe campaign power limits.

Not sick now, the tumour is out--thanks for wondering!

What's incorrect is them adding to the to-hit versus mages. Favored Opponent just boosts damage. The Blast is only a +8 to hit as a ranged attack. His Attacks are as follows (Attack bonus/Damage bonus):
Mages:
Unarmed - +10/+4
Sword - +10/+7
Blast - +8/+10
Everyone Else:
Unarmed - +10/+2
Sword - +10/+5
Blast - +8/+8

(sorry for the double post reply, but since some people only look in one place...)
