No. You can't swap the Healer's Lore class feature you gain from Divine Healer feat with Battle Cleric's Lore class feature. Rules-As-Written Battle Cleric's Lore is written as an Alternative Class Feature that which a cleric can take in place of Healer's Lore.1 Problem is, you are not a cleric. Divine Healer does not make you a cleric: A ...

I don't know if it is awkward to answer my own question but after my last game, i now have a more plausible answer in general, just sharing it here for future reference : Most of the spells that an Eldritch Knight uses in thick of battle, does not require material components thus making the need for a foci redundant and having war caster feat feasible for ...

An arcane focus can be a very small item. For a War Caster Eldritch Knight, I'd rule that you can wear your arcane focus, that you can hold it in your shield hand on the inside of your shield, that it could be a rune carved in your shield, or even that your weapon or shield could serve as the focus. For example, in one campaign I'm running, we have a War ...

•Have I missed any rules that would clarify this? No. Nothing in the description describes them as a magical effect, nor as having verbal, somatic, nor material components as a spell does. •Have the developers provided any RAI insight into the maneuvers? This question would be a good stand alone question by itself. (The entirety of dev tweets does ...

They are special nonmagical techniques based on being a scholar of combat. This is explained in the Battle Master entry: Those who emulate the archetypal Battle Master employ martial techniques passed down through the generation. To a Battle Master, combat is an academic field... Individual maneuvers explain what you're actually doing: Commander's ...

For 1 ki point that zen archer monk's attacks ignores concealment The opening sentence of the supernatural ability trick shot implies that the effect only affects the zen archer monk's attacks and, for example, the special ability doesn't enable him to see clearly through fey mist, and creatures can still use such concealment to make Stealth skill checks so ...

If this was the real world, we'd call it Magic. In the DnD world, it's just Logic. In the real world, dragons could not possibly fly. But they do in the DnD world, and Dispel Magic can't stop it from happening. There is a sort of magic that is implicit in the structure of the DnD universe. To the people in that universe it seems as unremarkable as the ...

Our group role plays them as timing and techniques that the fighter can exploit for extra effect. Maybe the goading attack is him yelling insults about the enemy's lineage or maybe it's a series of quick motions that almost hypnotize the enemy or a move that puts the enemy into an off balance position so he has a hard time attacking someone else. Commander'...

My understanding of RAW is: Ki 1: You ignore any modifiers associated with concealment, unless they have a rule more specific than this one that states the modifiers stay (as far as I am aware there are no such rules, but just in case there are). Ki 2: You ignore any modifiers associated with concealment and cover besides total cover (due to wording in Ki ...

Specific rule happens instead of general rule. In this case the general rule is that ranged attacks are unable to preform sunder. Here we have a specific rule that allows bomb damage to be done to objects, but make sure you work out the method first since it is a sunder and you must overcome their sunder CMD. From reading up on the abilities listed, there ...

A bomber rogue's combination of the alchemist discoveries explosive missile and demolition charge allows the rogue to deal the weapon's damage and the bomb's damage then subtract that from an object's hardness… somehow. Note that the weapon's damage will probably be reduced before hardness is applied: Objects take half damage from ranged weapons (unless ...

The sunder combat maneuver replaces a melee attack. Explosive Missiles, thrown bombs, and mundane ammo all fail to make the attack melee, thus the required action to sunder cannot be taken.

A creature possessing the paladin's channel positive energy and cleric's channel energy tracks those class features separately The Pathfinder Core Rulebook FAQ includes this exchange: I have this ability from more than one class, do they stack? No—unless an ability specifically says it stacks with similar abilities (such as an assassin's sneak attack),...

Unless you have a class feature like holy vindicator's that explicitly says that your levels stack then it works similarly to how you gain spellcasting were you to gain levels in two spellcasting classes. You have two instances of Channel Energy independent of one another with their own effective class level and number of uses.

Nothing overcomes this Damage Reduction (besides things that completely ignore DR, like energy damage). That's what the dash means. PFSRD: The numerical part of a creature's damage reduction (or DR) is the amount of damage the creature ignores from normal attacks. Usually, a certain type of weapon can overcome this reduction (see Overcoming DR). This ...

That's a nice tactic that is perfectly valid. The ground is a target and this is not a spell that only lets you target "creatures" or something like that. Of course, this means that nobody will take the primary damage of the bomb, just the splash damage. Easier target, minor effect looks fair to me.
