comment What are “tiers”, and what tier is each class?
By your own definition, Fighter should be tier 6, not 5. I haven't played a few of the tier-5s to know how they match up, but looking at your definition for tier-6, the fighter's specialty is undoubtedly melee-spec combat; it's almost literally the only thing any class feature contributes to ('almost' only because there's a couple feats for ranged-spec). It is objectively inferior at that to the paladin, soulknife, and probably soulborn (all tier-5), and the monk is comparable at it while at the same time having slightly more ability outside of that specialty.

comment In what circumstances (if any) is Fighter 3 a good level to take?
Then where did you find anything preventing charging on "precarious surfaces" at all? I'm still not seeing where there's a limitation to Charge that this particular Balance check with penalties can negate.

comment Can Magus change their grip on their sword during spell combat as a free action?
@HeyICanChan Yea, the designers tend to write as though the core plus whatever book you're holding are the only books you'll ever use, and only at a very low optimization level. That expectation seems unwarranted to me, but then again, they probably have done more studying of the game's demographics than I have.

@HeyICanChan "light weapon" and "one-handed weapon" are established types of weapons in the game. Weapons of the "one-handed weapon" type can be wielded with both hands, but doing so does not, in so far as the rules text is concerned, cause them to cease to be a "one-handed weapon". You would still lose the "one hand free" requirement, as Coxswain mentioned, but the "wielding a one-handed weapon" requirement would not be lost.

Where did you find anything allowing for charging across precarious surfaces with a Balance check penalty? The penalty your citation seems to be referring to only applies to increasing how fast you can move across the surface, it still does not negate the clause in the charging rules that forbids charging across bad terrain, because that clause doesn't limit itself to cases where the terrain in question slows you down, it simply says if rough terrain, then no charging.

Note that the Actions in Combat table you cite *has a section for non-actions". That the table doesn't include AoOs does not indicate that they aren't actions, it indicates that the table doesn't say what they are or aren't.

comment Why is burying yourself not such a great plan?
Even spread over your entire body, a ton is still enough weight to do significant damage over an 8-hour period.

Yes, 3 feet of dirt is exactly crushing. As @Mike pointed out, that's nearly 2/3 of a ton dry, and exceeds one ton after a bit of rain.

@HeyICanChan As far as I can tell, that's not specified anywhere in the rules. d20pfsrd.com/gamemastering/combat#TOC-Attacks-of-Opportunity Closest it comes is referring to it as a "free attack", which could be read as meaning "a free action" (which the rest of the sentence would establish as being "a free action takable when it's not your turn"), but its action-type or non-action status isn't actually established beyond it not consuming any of the usual action-type allotments (it has its own). This action-type allotment of its own leads me to classify AoO as being a type of action.

@mxyzplk yea, but "same initiative count" isn't good enough to get the necessary degree of simultaneity.
