Talk:Mystic (3.5e Prestige Class)
From D&D Wiki
Firstly, I think the Coin Mystic needs a serious re-evaluation or maybe just a better explanation. Specifically the Masterwork ability and the Bargain - can this be used to get rid of nine level one spells to get a level 9 spell? Also: what about the people that say that wizards know every single spell? The Mystic of the Key's ability "Dream Born" should instead of making all the damage non-lethal if it is below your constitution modifier make it change an amount of damage to non-lethal damage (for each attack) equal to your constitution modifier. Mystic of the Mask's ability "Reveal" is too weak for the level. Mystic of the Orb's "Curve" is a bit weak for the level... You can just get "Blind-Fight". Lastly, for "Deem" (the Mystic of the Ring ability) what is defined as "under stress" because almost any combat roll I would class as "under stress" - I mean, you could get killed! --Sabre070 23:56, 7 January 2009 (MST)
- Well, for the mystic of the coin, I'll go back through and try to fix it so that it's easier to understand (I think I remember typing it after staying up all night anyways), but yes, that is exactly how the Bargain class ability works, though, just because you know the spell doesn't mean you can cast or prepare it, and as for the "wizards know every single spell" people, well, I wouldn't really expect them to bother taking the third level in that version of the mystic anyways, if they even took the first two. Your idea for the revamp on the Dream Born ability is brilliant (I'm kinda peeved I didn't think about that the first time through actually, lol), Reveal and Curve, I admit are rather underpowered (especially Curve), but in my defense, I was running low on ideas. For Deem, it's really up to the DM, but yes I agree that any combat roll would be under stress, but now that I pause and think about it, I may put in the ability to repress the Deem ability. Also, thank you for your interest in the class, I've been putting a lot of work into it over the past few weeks and it's good to see my work is noticed. → Rith 01:21, 8 January 2009 (MST)
- Are the mystic of the coin class features more understandable now? Also, if you wouldn't mind looking, could you tell me what you think of the revamps on Reveal and Curve? → Rith 01:14, 10 January 2009 (MST)
- Yes, It looks good. --Sabre070 20:53, 10 January 2009 (MST)
- Wow man, this is awesome kinda makes me wanna play 3.5 again, I get so many awesome ideas when reading mystic of the key, and chalice. ShadowyFigure 12:11, 29 January 2009 (MST)
This is a guide for everyone who wishes to take a few levels in this class, but doesn't want to have to read it all the way through, herein I list the basic flavor and idea behind each version of the mystic.
Mystic of the Book: This is the epitome of the bard, the writer of epics, and the wise traveller.
Mystic of the Chain: This is the arcane scientist, the overly analytical mentor, and the cynical prophet.
Mystic of the Chalice: This is the powerful beacon of joy, the jolly stranger, and the unstoppable force.
Mystic of the Coin: This is the eldritch merchant, the cluttered hermit, and the everchanging elder.
Mystic of the Key: This is the insane mage, the eccentric sorcerer, and the distant sage.
Mystic of the Mask: This is the mysterious stranger, the dark, hooded figure, and the impassive smirk.
Mystic of the Mirror: This is the wise prophet, the kind mentor, and the unwavering hand.
Mystic of the Orb: This is the iron willed wizard, the calm observer, and the unbreakable fortress.
Mystic of the Ring: This is the trusting mentor, the evoker of skill, and the inner force.
Power - 5/5 All are balanced and interesting some are slightly stronger than others but otherwise it is very much balanced. --Lord Dhazriel 12:18, 17 April 2009 (MDT)
Wording - 5/5 Clean. --Lord Dhazriel 12:18, 17 April 2009 (MDT)
Flavor - 5/5 I really like the idea and variety of mystic, it is very interesting. --Lord Dhazriel 12:18, 17 April 2009 (MDT)
Power - 5/5 I give this class a 5 out of 5 because it appears balanced enough. --126.96.36.199 20:39, 29 April 2009 (MDT)
Wording - 2/5 I give this class a2 out of 5 because the spelling and grammar could use some work. The story for the example PC needs a rewrite. --188.8.131.52 20:39, 29 April 2009 (MDT)
- Hmm, seems a little harsh to chop off 3 point just because of the class needing "some" work and a rewrite, doesn't it? I mean, at most, that should get 2 points "chopped off". → Rith (talk) 21:03, 29 April 2009 (MDT)
Flavor - 5/5 I give this class a 5 out of 5 because you managed to create nine distinct outlooks and translate them into nine similar but unique classes. --184.108.40.206 20:39, 29 April 2009 (MDT)
Formatting - 5/5 I give this class a 5 out of 5 because it's easy to follow and logical. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 220.127.116.11 (talk • contribs) 07:21, May 10, 2009 (MST). Please sign your posts!
