Our new party will have 2 wizards, a sorcerer and a priest. The question is; can our sorc learn spells from 2 wizards via feats/skills i don't know. Something like that Eagle Eye skill in Heroes 3.

Thanks

No. Wizards are the class that can learn spells from others, Sorcerors are defined by their limited spells known.

Yeah, the only thing to do would be when the sorcerer levels up, take the spells he wants.

A sorcererís selection of spells is extremely limited. A sorcerer begins play knowing four 0-level spells and two 1st-level spells of your choice. At each new sorcerer level, he gains one or more new spells, as indicated on Table: Sorcerer Spells Known. (Unlike spells per day, the number of spells a sorcerer knows is not affected by his Charisma score; the numbers on Table: Sorcerer Spells Known are fixed.) These new spells can be common spells chosen from the sorcerer/wizard spell list, or they can be unusual spells that the sorcerer has gained some understanding of by study. The sorcerer canít use this method of spell acquisition to learn spells at a faster rate, however.

Looks like you're SOL. Drake Helms, Know Stones, and Runestaves are your friends.

No, they can not.

Dragon 333 had Knowstones, priced at spell level squared x 1000 gp.

Complete Arcane has Extra Spell feat, but that may clash with the text quoted by GoodbyeSoberDay. I'm not really familiar with PF, but it's supposed to be mostly backward-compatible, right? Never mind, what GBSD quoted was from the SRD, so no conflict.

Unfortunately, you can't do that. Luckily, Pathfinder has a couple of nice built-in ways to get more spells known (besides the free bloodline spells).


Sorcerer: Add one spell known from the sorcerer spell list. This spell must be at least one level below the highest spell level the sorcerer can cast.


Prerequisites: Caster level 1st, see Special.

Benefit: Add one spell from your classís spell list to your list of spells known. This is in addition to the number of spells normally gained at each new level in your class. You may instead add two spells from your classís spell list to your list of spells known, but both of these spells must be at least one level lower than the highest level spell you can cast in that class. Once made, these choices cannot be changed.

Special: You can only take this feat if you possess levels in a class whose spellcasting relies on a limited list of spells known, such as the bard, oracle, and sorcerer. You can gain Expanded Arcana multiple times.

Cool. What's the reasoning for the Complete Arcane feat not being an option?

I don't think Pathfinder is meant to be used alongside 3.5 stuff.

Expanded Arcana is better than Extra Spell in pretty much every way.
