View Full Version : Quick Help about the basics

This is easy. You know

I'm GM'ing Pathfinder, but I can't find in the handbook how can you calculate the DC of the spells that you cast.

What is the formulae? 10 + Int / Wis / Cha + Spell Level + Caster Level? The same but without the 10? The same without the Spell Level??

My players will arrive shortly... please, guys!

Pathfinder may have changed it, but in basic 3.5 it's:

10 + spell level + bonus in casting stat.

So a wizard with 15 int casting fireball ends up with a DC of 10 + 3 (spell level) + 2 (int) = 15.

See here (http://www.d20srd.org/srd/magicOverview/spellDescriptions.htm#savingThrow).

The same without caster level. It is in the Class Feature of each spellcasting class.

EDIT: I know it will be ninja'ed. Kamikasei got it better
