    Default Wait a second...

    Alright, bear with my possible huge oversight here, but I just want to confirm something.

    The max skill ranks (for a class skill) a character can have is 3+character level, correct?

    If this is the case, why, in the Fatespinner description in CA, does their example for spin use a 5th level wizard/3rd level Fatespinner? Have I missed some amazing way to get 10 ranks in knowledge: Arcana by level 5?

    This is probably really old news or a major oversight on my part, but it's gonna bug me all day if I don't ask. >.<

    Most likely the skill rank requirement was eight ranks at the time that part of the description was written, and it got overlooked for updating when the requirement was updated.

    Or if it helps you sleep better at night, suppose the example character had two non-caster class levels (or maybe racial hit dice) on top of its 5 wizard levels and 3 fatespinner levels.

    Congratulations, you've found Wizards of the Coast Editing Foulup #437581.

    Honestly, they don't even try to make example statblocks correct.

    Probably because people don't really read that garbage, at least I don't. Here's Jimmy the Half-orc Cleric, oh neat, he has a great club and his first level feat is dodge, whatev. Now to make a good character.
