View Full Version : [3.5] Binders and PrCs

2010-01-13, 08:21 PM
Just a question for consideration: does anyone think it would be in anyway unbalanced or problematic to let PrCs which advance caster level to advance soul binding instead? Similarly to how they advance a Warlock's invocations...

For instance, the Human Paragon class advances casting by 2 over three levels. I'm thinking of letting it advance soul binding by 2 levels.

Obviously, the key things to consider are whether the Binder qualifies for the PrC in the first case (no PrCs with caster levels or spell requirements). Also, since soul binding does not count as either arcane or divine, it would not work with classes that specifically advance arcane or divine casting.

All thoughts and feedback welcome.

Sounds fine to me.

Sounds like a brilliant idea to me.

I can't imagine this being imbalanced.

Binders are fairly average (okay, maybe a bit high with Zceryll) on the tier tree, so I don't think that giving them a bit of a boost here and there is going to be a problem.

The most OP casting PrCs are those that improve spellcasting in important ways - Shadowcraft Mage, Incantatrix, etc. There's Iot7V, that's about the only one of the top tier PrCs that is effective without spellcasting, but I'm pretty sure it's Arcane-only. So I think there's very little chance of a problem.

Nice. I think Binder would mesh fairly well with some of the partial progression PRCs like Dragonslayer.
