The Comprehensive Pathfinder Guides Guide

Here is a list of guides that I have drawn from other Guide to the Guides around the interwebs. With over 150 guides, it's fairly complete. It's got Class guides, psionics, equipment guides, tips, tricks, all the works. Enjoy!

Also, here is the Guide to the Builds, a repository for all of the best builds out there.

  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.

  8. The Races of Pathfinder link under General Character Building is outdated and a duplicate (besides being outdated) of the Guide to Races link under Other.

  9. The "Fist of the Heavens! A Guide to the Champion of Irori" links to a blank document.

    1. Great guide, and sorry it took so long to add - I've been out of the country for a few weeks. Is there a discussion page floating around as well?

  13. Thanks for this incredibly useful compilation!
    However, Axe's Guide to Finding Divinity (cleric guide) leads to a 404, maybe you'd like to check or take the link down.
