comment Can a duskblade's Arcane Channeling affect a target more than once per round?
This info is more than helpful to me, thanks a lot :). I am just not sure if I should change my accepted answer to this one considering it doesn't offer anything more on the original question. Big thanks anyway.

comment Can a duskblade's Arcane Channeling affect a target more than once per round?
@HeyICanChan Wait, you're certain..? Duskblades get both Scorching and Polar Ray in their spell list, it would seem touch includes Ranged Touch spells. If so, that would be a problem considering our Duskblade has been using it for ages to deal significant damage in his attacks since level 6...

comment How can an intelligent magic lance change what type of weapon it is?
OP might also want to consider the Transmuting property(from the same book), which allows the weapon to adapt it's physical element so as to bypass damage reduction as it sounds thematically appropriate

comment How to deal with lack of downtime as a wizard?
@mcv It does exist though most people agree that due to the explicit description of spell preparation routine in PHB's wizard entry, by RAW you need 8h of rest to prep. spells no matter what. Thus ring of sustenance is the most useless item for a wizard...

comment Heart of Water and grappling threats
@BESW I really have no specific criteria or scenarios in mind. I am just looking for an overall good way of dealing with grappling threats and in spite of various recommendations HoW seems quite lacking for this due to the action cost in an average situation. I will try to clarify that in the question.

@BESW Third Eye Freedom from Magic Item Compendium for instance.

comment Justice of Weald & Woe PrC and Fighter levels
I am well aware of the feats requiring fighter levels. Weapon spec. allows ranged/melee weapon mastery though which is a very common reason to try and get it in various builds.

comment Removing attack spells from Cantrips
@mike I think I understand your sentiments for keeping the casters from "spamming pew pew cantrips". It is worth noting however that in previous editions casters possessed powerfull (often over-powered) low-level spells that allowed for effective dealing with encounters using only one of them, such as Sleep, Grease, Chromatic spray etc. In Next those spells are significantly nerfed and by no means offer the same advantage they previously offered. Sleep for instance only has the potential to affect 3-4 level 1 creatures atm. It becomes almost unusable by level 2-3.

comment Do any of the pre-gens have daily powers?
It is worth noting at this point that thanks to careful design Next seems to be doing a pretty decent job in the balance aspect as well. Certainly better than earlier editions, though probably not as balanced as 4e due to system constraints.

comment How can I make an exceptionally savage Gangrel?
@Jackskel21 I am not so familiar with the nWoD setting but is there any mention to diableries (eg a vampire drinking another vampires blood and soul to increase his own power)? If so that is what you need, the most hideous act known in the vampire society, far worse than any murder or rape.

comment Can Ability Score increases caused by magic items qualify me for feats
Don't you think your question is elaborating for no real reason? The OP asked a theoretical question regarding requirements and temporary bonuses but you expanded to power-building and optimization analysis...

comment What do you do when there's nothing to do in combat?
+1 for the 'Screw the Rules' part, D&D is one of those games that could use some improvisation.

comment Can wizard's staff of defense class feature stack with Wizard Utility 2 Shield on the same triggering effect?
@waxeagle That is more than likely. I will keep that in mind next time I play 4e.

@waxeagle You and Oblivious are both correct, I edited my answer.

comment How to deal with lack of downtime as a wizard?
I didn't mention the 2/spells per level because I found it too obvious. However the rest is very helpful. I have the impression the "24 consecutive hours" thing is house-ruled but will check again.

comment How to deal with lack of downtime as a wizard?
@Yamikuronue Because if I do stay inside doing nothing but writing spells the rest of the party will try to find other things to do, possibly resulting in shenanigans and retarded/boring RP. The DM will then refrain from giving them side-quests in order to not cause an exp. gap... To conclude, I have a feeling he is trying to avoid giving us too much nothing-to-do-time.

comment Passage of Time within a Rope Trick spell
@SimonGill That sounds quite reasonable. I assumed there would be a source stating that demiplanes inherit their properties from their "parent" plane but I haven't found something similar.

comment Deepwood Sniper's Take Aim
The thing is I am going to be in a low-level, low-magic campaign without magic items and many casters are banned. There is sorcerer which I could play but I don't really like the whole idea of going caster to represent a martial ranger, I would rather do it the mundane way and use bow/crossbow. Excluding barb, do you still think fighter/ranger without PRCs would be better?

comment Deepwood Sniper's Take Aim
I did not add the actual text of the class feature as I am not sure if this would be allowed, let me know if it's ok and you would like me to do so.

Oh, thanks, I didn't realize that.
