I have a question about caster level and sorcerer level in Pathfinder and the Ultimate Magic book.
I know what a caster level is, kinda, and I know what a character level is.
But it's a bit confusing in the books. I have created a Sorcerer, Bloodline Efreeti and my 1st level ability in that bloodline is this:
Fire Ray (Sp): Starting at 1st level, you can unleash an elemental ray as a standard action, targeting any foe within 30 feet as a ranged touch attack. This ray deals 1d6 points of fire damage + 1 for every two sorcerer levels you possess. You can use this ability a number of times per day equal to 3 + your Charisma modifier.
My question is about the part that says "+ 1 for every two sorcerer levels you possess."
I have a trait, Magical Knack, that says:
Pick a class when you gain this trait—your caster level in that class gains a +2 trait bonus as long as this bonus doesn't raise your caster level above your current Hit Dice.
So my current caster level with my Level 1 Sorcerer is 3, does this mean that I get a +2 for my bloodline ability?
