Talk:Arcane Hunter (3.5e Prestige Class)
From D&D Wiki
Questions and Suggestions
Though the PrC is named "arcane hunter", I don't see anything that explicitly requires the character to be able to cast arcane spells. So a divine spellcaster that could cast hold person, grease, animate rope would be able to qualify. Is this intentional? If not, is it intended that a character that casts both arcane and divine spells be able to apply the "+1 spell casting level" to its divine spell progression?
Also, as general guideline, PrCs should never have ability score requirements.
Lastly, the class features need to be labeled as Ex, Su, or Sp. —Sledged 10:55, 26 September 2006 (MDT)

There should be no ability prerequisites for entry. The feats are a little harsh (worth taking just for the class?). The abilities (e.g. urban stride and urban empathy) are ambiguous. Not all abilities are listed (and must be referenced on SRD class pages). The class has too many abilities, especially with the extra attack bonus and saves that an arcane caster would benefit from. This is significantly imbalanced in several ways, so I give it a 2. The idea is good, but both the entry requirements and the class need to be made less (narrow and powerful, respectively). --EldritchNumen 21:38, 11 December 2006 (MST)
Why would anyone ever give up a level of spellcasting for Track (which they can get by Polymorph) and Wild Empathy (which is useless)? This class isn't even 1 level long. Surgo 00:07, 6 September 2008 (MDT)
