View Full Version : (Request) PF Favored Class bonuses for UM/UC

2012-01-20, 10:51 AM
The Pathfinder Advanced Player's Guide added a collection of alternate Favored Class bonuses for the different player races. For example, a dwarf barbarian can choose to add 1 round of raging for every level of Barbarian they take if they have barbarian as a favored class.

Unfortunately, it doesn't seem like Paizo added such bonuses to their new classes, the Magus, Gunslinger, Samurai and Ninja. I guess one could use the Cavalier and Rogue FC bonus for the last two, but that still leaves the other. And I'm rambling. :smallredface:

I would like to see some racial Favored Class bonuses for the Magus and Gunslinger classes. Thank you.

There might be some stuff in the upcoming Ultimate Races

but... I'll bite.

Some are obviously better than others, but that's nothing new for favored class bonuses.
