Enoch Posted November 28, 2018 Share Posted November 28, 2018 I'm currently playing a War Caller (Skald), and by the far the most annoying part of building this character is the cap on Chanter phrase accumulation. Specifically, Chanters can never accumulate more Phrases than the highest cost Invocation they have learned. This also limits the "free" phrases that Chanters get at the beginning of combat. I've been playing this character as a non-summoning Chanter, and, as incentivised by the Skald subclass, I've been avoiding investing in non-offensive Invocations. Now I've got a level 10 War Caller who starts combat with 2 Phrases (i.e., the cost for all her Invocations), and whose Phrase count never goes above 2. Which is unchanged from level 1. If I re-spec her level 10 PL4 Chanter ability into a non-offensive Invocation (even though I'd really like one of those great tier-4 Phrases), boom, she starts every fight with 5 Phrases. This is supremely irritating, and I can't figure out whether it's an intended effect or not. (That is, should I be reporting a bug?) I get that they might want to have an upward bound on the accumulation of Phrases, but, at the very least, this cap shouldn't be less than the number of "free" phrases that one would otherwise get at the start of combat. Deciding to relying on low-level invocations (discounted by the Skald subclass) shouldn't be gimping an important aspect of the growth of a character's class abilities. (If this has been discussed before, please refer me to that thread. My searching didn't find anything, but it's tough to guess the terms that folks would use for this.) 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
