comment How many people can use Aid Another to help on a craft check?
I'm not entirely sold on either interpretation. If it came up in-game, it'd probably depend on the individual circumstances and whether I thought collaboration had a chance of improving so much.

comment How do you help your GM/fellow PCs track buffs/debuffs?
@Zachiel Giving me the total is something I worked on, actually. And some of them need the occasional reminder. "I don't need the pieces, just give me the total, please."

comment Handy spells to have on scrolls for a specific scenario?
Blindness with a will save is nice, but a save every round kind of neuters its effectiveness. And the area effect is large enough to be inconvenient around allies but small enough that it takes a really unwisely grouped foe to leverage the area much.

@Mala: How do you find it useful on a consistent basis? I'd love if you have a consistent use, but don't see it, myself.

So you're optimizing for what, exactly? BAB? Caster levels? negative energy damage?

comment How do I make an optimal inflict wounds rogue in pathfinder?
You need to define "optimal". I can think of a couple of things to optimize for, but just doing sneak attack with negative energy only takes having a rogue attack with something that can do negative energy damage (like being a cleric or having a wand). Undead no longer are immune to sneak attack or criticals in Pathfinder...

comment Is it worth it for a barbarian to take a level of alchemist?
Good answer! Two possible additions: one, you may want to consider bumping Int if you go with Barbarian. An IntMod is added to all splash damage and it gives you an extra Extract per day (in addition to retroactive skill points that could partially offset missing your favored class bonus). Two, don't forget potential social/group dynamics that may frown on "dipping". Some groups don't like it for RP reasons and some just don't like the min-maxing it implies. Not a strong determinant because it's still your character, but maybe worth considering.

comment Fighter - Archer Archetype Trick Shot ability CMB question
Indeed. Frankly, I'd limit the amount of Str you can add to the CMB by the Str rating of a composite bow (and remove it entirely if you weren't using one).

comment Why can you only craft one magic item per day?
The rules actually allow you to craft while adventuring, just not a lot. Also: they allow you to create a minor scroll or potion in a mere couple hours, though you're still limited to one per day. d20pfsrd.com/magic-items#TOC-Magic-Item-Creation

comment Attack of Opportunity & spell casting
Good answer, though in Pathfinder (and this question is specifically tagged Pathfinder), concentration is no longer a skill and thus doesn't have "ranks". A concentration check is simply your caster level plus the modifier for the relevant caster ability (Int, Wis, or Cha). Some traits or feats may add to it, but still no ranks.

@KRyan You might want to review the rules on that... d20pfsrd.com/magic#TOC-Concentration

comment Attack of Opportunity & spell casting
This is a great answer, but I'd consider adding a section for concentration checks and casting defensively. You either have a concentration check based on taking damage during spellcasting or one based on casting defensively.

comment Drawing a weapon and attacking the same turn
@BraddSzonye Yeah, I just wanted to clarify given the author's original example of having a reach weapon.
