Hey everyone,Just a few questions about the mechanics of a spellsword, if anybody knows. They look like an interesting class, but some of their abilities are confusing to me...When it says they gain a caster level for every other level of spellsword, it states that they gain benefits of increased spell duration, as well as "improved spellcasting". This might be self-explanatory, but does improved spellcasting mean they can gain circles of spells (I.E. a level 5 wizard / 10 spellsword would be able to cast 4th circle spells?)Thanks,Teo


Hi Teo, Yes, it does mean

Hi Teo,


Yes, it does mean that. He'd actually be able to cast 5th level Spells... maybe more.

However, upon leveling... you do not get to choose any spells.

So if your entering a new circle of spells... ie 4th Level Spells... you will not learn any new spells. You can only use spells you have discovered/learned along the way.

The Improved SpellCasting also means.. for example... it will class the SpellSword level as an additional Wizard level.

So a Level 5 Wizard/ Level 1 SpellSword will be casting as a Level 6 Wizard. This effects the likes of most damage spells ( Fireball ..etc ) and Stoneskin/ Greater Magic Weapon... etc...etc
