  6. The Action Economy Blog doesn't mention Unseen Servant at all! This spell (lasting an hour a level) essentially gives you a move equivalent action each round. In conjunction with the Handy Haversack you could have anything you had on you in your hand and still be able to take a full round of actions.

    1. Do you have a discussion link somewhere? I suggest you make a forum post so people can critique and suggest items for your guide. Let me know when you do that and give me the link.

      Also, I would suggest you make the green a few shades darker as it is hard to read right now.

    2. Hello there. Thank you for your short build guide. It's the only one I found, after several hours of searching.
      I am struggling allot to find any builds for Slayer class(apart from yours). Could you please look these links to get more/better ideas? I think that the class has great potential but probably needs a mastermind to pull his potential out. And you do a very good job so far.

      I will post some links that might help you understand Slayer better and some possible twists in his builds:

  27. Zenith, I'd like to thank you for keeping such a huge collection of extensive guides and knowledge for me to better not just my own characters but my game master and gaming experience as a whole. Please continue your tireless work, my gamers and myself thank you for making our hobby that much more enjoyable and challenging.

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words! Pathfinder has a great community, and it is my pleasure to do my part. Expect lots more material in the coming months!

  28. I made a half silly/half serious optimization guide to Commoners 'You're Gonna Die Screaming' - it's pay what you want (including free) http://www.rpgnow.com/product/137721?affiliate_id=34429&src=ZENITH I would love to get it added to your pretty awesome list - thanks for doing all this curatorial work Zenith.

    1. The best way would be to host them somewhere (such as google docs), and then comment on the Guide to the Builds with the links. If they meet the criteria, I'll put them on the list.

  30. I didn't make these guides but heres the start of the ACG rollout:

    Warpriest: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1fAITTzF0hu2mCB-_5vSJGw697JGdSXIOWy9VMp5wyzY/pub

    Bloodrager: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1uV52XseHRUMKOM-fLF6oXwkF-bcmmPk93XR8u02-sYw/edit

    TarkXT says he almost has a shaman guide done.

    BTW, thanks for keeping this up here. I use the crap out of this guide database, by far the best PF guide database out there. Thanks for the good work!

  31. I have written guides about Teamwork Feats and Pets and Lighting, Stealth, and the Hide in Plain Sight ability.

    Also, my essay about Poisons is both a guide and an interpolation for house rules.

  32. Just an addition for the Arclord of Nex PrC Guide. Why weren't they Amazing Tools of Manufacture mentioned? Spend 1 hour and craft 2k worth of magic items? What crafter would not want this?

  33. It's been since May, and while I don't like to do self-promotion, I feel it hasn't been promoted enough.

    http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?348211-A-Guide-to-the-Paladin-through-the-eyes-of-a-D-amp-D-3-5-player

    I intend to add more material to it as it appears, particularly adding Path of War content. While the other Paladin guides are good at what they do, I feel they are incomplete, and this one is meant to be as comprehensive as possible.

  34. Have you seen KaptainKrunch's Complete Wizard Guide?

    There's a thread on the Paizo forums here: http://paizo.com/threads/rzs2oo6u?Complete-Wizard-Guide-Ver-20

    And a link to the PDF here: https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B_a8npqn-nnsZm5RNTJHekV6VHc/edit?pli=1

    It seems like it has a monumental level of detail.

    2. The link to the Discussion thread for the Two-Handed Fighter guide (pretty cool guide, by the way) is messed up -- it is:

      http://paizo.com/threads/paizo.com/threads/rzs2p6pp?Two-Hands-are-Better-Than-One-A-Guide-for

      but should be:

      http://paizo.com/threads/rzs2p6pp?Two-Hands-are-Better-Than-One-A-Guide-for

      (Note that the first one gives an error.)
