Weapon and Armour Proficiency
Scroll mercenaries of wisdom are not proficient with any type of weapons or armour.

A scroll mercenary of wisdom can cast a very small number of arcane spells, as given on Table: The Scroll Mercenary of Wisdom. The scroll mercenary of wisdom does not get bonus spells for having a high wisdom score, though the save DC is wisdom based.

The scroll mercenary of wisdom casts spells straight from the cleric, wizard and sorcerer spell lists, without preparation. However, this great power is limited: the scroll mercenary of wisdom can only recover spell slots by getting a full night's rest, and not in any other manner. Attempts to gain more spells per day than are on Table: The Scroll Mercenary of Wisdom for the relevant level are similarly futile. That said, scroll mercenaries of wisdom can cast spells they may have from other classes without this restriction, as well as using spell trigger and spell completion items (which they can craft to great effect, due to their access to all wizard, sorcerer and cleric spells).

Scribe Scroll
The scroll mercenary of wisdom gains scribe scroll as a bonus feat.

Great Scroll Metamagic
The scroll mercenary of wisdom gets a bonus metamagic feat every fourth level, and can also add up to a single level of metamagic per four levels to a spell without altering its casting time or spell slot.

Why do they have 0 spells per day at the third level they get a spell level except for 9th?

Why do they have 0 spells per day at the third level they get a spell level except for 9th?

I think the 0 is meant to be in the next column over and the 1 was swapped with it every time.

So, this doesn't get bonus spells from a high ability score modifier?

The progression works like this:

- Start with 1 cantrip, 1 first
- Your level 2 sucks because it doesn't do anything. I should possibly change that. (EDIT: Now it gives you a second cantrip)
- Your 1st becomes a 2nd
- You get a new 1st to replace it.
- Your 2nd becomes a 3rd.
- You get a new second to replace it.
- Etcetera etcetera
- Your 8th becomes a 9th.
- You get a new 8th to replace it.
- You get an extra cantrip, 1st and 2nd. (EDIT: Now 1st, 2nd and 3rd)
- You get an extra 3rd and 4th. (EDIT: Now 4th and 5th)

I'm tempted to hand you your second cantrip at second level so you don't suck so hard early on. I'm gonna go do that. And then I'll buff your level 19-20 a little. (EDIT: Done that)

This class doesn't give you bonus spells for a high ability score, correct. Otherwise you'd get about three times as many as are actually on the table!
