How to get Spell Focus or learn a new spell (as a Beguiler)?
« on: January 24, 2010, 07:46:34 AM »
Why? To qualify for ScM early.

Anyways, I'm guessing the latter is the easiest. If the means to the (latter's) achievement is via a (cheap =< 900 GP) item, I'd be ecstatic. Otherwise, it'd have to be a feat whose effect remains for at least one level to be retrained, Psychic Reformed, or DCFSed.

On that note, anyone mind giving me the price of those 3 tricks off-hand?

ARCANE DISCIPLE [GENERAL]
Choose a deity, and then select a domain available to clerics
of that deity. You can learn to cast the spells associated with
that domain as arcane spells.
Prerequisites: Knowledge (religion) 4 ranks, Spellcraft
4 ranks, able to cast arcane spells, alignment matches your
deity’s alignment.
Bene?  t:  Add the chosen domain’s spells to your class list
of arcane spells. If you have arcane spellcasting ability from
more than one class, you must pick which arcane spellcast-
ing ability this feat applies to. Once chosen, this decision
cannot be changed for that feat.
  You may learn these spells as normal for your class; how-
ever, you use Wisdom (rather than the normal ability for
your spellcasting) when determining the save DC for the
spell. In addition, you must have a Wisdom score equal to
10 + the spell’s level in order to prepare or cast a spell gained
from this feat.
  Each day, you may prepare (or cast, if you cast spells with-
out preparation) a maximum of one of these domains spells
of each level.
Special: You can take this feat more than once. Each
time, you must select a different domain available to the
same deity you chose the ?  rst time you selected the feat.
For example, a character who chose Heironeous and the
Good domain with his ?  rst selection could choose Law or
War with successive selections of the same feat. He couldn’t
choose Protection, since that domain isn’t available to
clerics of Heironeous.
WIS? That's not a prereq, but I think I see what you mean otherwise. Thank you for posting.

EUREKA! Rod of Shadowblending from Complete Mage lets you transform Minor Image to Shadow Conjuration (it's as broken as it sounds). Now, I need to figure out how to buy one for 9k GP at level 1... Uh... What feats would help me do this? Craft? I don't have a spellbook to sell.

Addendum: Nevermind; I'm considering this in terms of those arena rules, and I don't think they'd allow buying a 9k GP item at level 1...

Three words: Poles and ladders. :P
It's all about vision and making reality conform to your vision. By dropping a fucking house on it.

re: Poles and ladders: If by this you mean that that is what should be crafted, I refer again to arena rules. Else, you are making an analogy of early qualification?

I was referring to getting 9k gold pieces at level 1. A single 10-ft. pole costs sells for more than a 10-ft. ladder (which is, presumably, made out of two poles). You do the math.

Aha, I've heard of that one before! Isn't there also use of a scroll for Flesh to Salt upon cows?

Addendum: Check the tinyurl in my sig for my newest project.
re: references: Everyone deserves to see what I'm talking about. On that note, how many hand-degrees must content be before it's not considered posting copyright information?

Yeah, but that's harder to get into as the starting cost is higher (a few thousand for the scroll).
